    Re: William Wingfield - SYTYCD 4

    Funny thing is ... I think the judges are doing him a disservice. I actually don't like the guy, probably in whiplash to the judges overpraising of him (call it the Archuleta Syndrome). He's probably better than I give him credit for. But because of the droolfest from the judges, I don't like him.

    I totally agreed with Cat last night...I was glad to see Will in the bottom 3 so that we could see his solo...he was phenomenal!!!!!!! Like Nigel said, he would be perfect with the Alvin Ailey dance group!!!

    I was glad also. We needed to see that - we definitely can't see his strengths when with a weaker partner.

    He was quite amazing , and I could certainly see the comparison with the dance troup.

    Will's solo last night was extaordinary. Brilliant in fact. And I also agreed with Nigel that he was as good as the guys from Alvin Ailey. It will be good next week to see him dancing with someone other than Jessica.

    Unless he happens to draw Jessica's name....Benji and Donyelle did so it is possible...

    Am I the only one who felt like Will's solo last night was more of an audition for the Alvin Ailey group than it was an attempt to stay on SYTYCD. After all, he knew there was no way the lovesick judges would even consider eliminating him, so he really wasn't "dancing for his life" in that solo.

    There's no doubt he's very talented, but I just don't think he's even close to being as great as he's made out to be.

    I didn't think so. That is just, basically, his style of dancing. It happens to fit the style of the Alvin Ailey troupe. I think he's totally amazing. I wouldn't be surprised if Alvin Ailey's group wasn't contacting him about his future. His style of dance has been the same since his audition for the show.

    Well, I agree with you partially . The first thing I thought when I saw him dance was "auditioning for Alvin Ailey"...However, I think he's fabulous. Or, maybe it isn't just the judges that are lovesick

    As did Alison when she drew Ivan.

    I was unimpressed with the Alvin Ailey troupe. I think Will choreographs himself better than what I saw last night from AA.

    One of Debbie Allen's top teacher and administrators at her dance school is a former AA troupe member and she has LOTS of connections with them as well as any number of other premier dance troupes. If Will wants to go that route after this, she'll be able to help him. She's very good about helping "her" dancers make it in the performing world! Debbie has been successful not just because she is talented (and she is very talented) but because she networks and markets and calls in favors. Having worked with her over several months, she has many, many friends. Some of whom are the biggest names in "Hollywood", and not necessarily actors.
