    This guy is incredible. If he never danced anything but ballet, I'd be a happy woman!

    If I remember correctly, when he first audition, he mentioned something about taking hip hop dancing class, and few other more, and he said he was horrible, and then he started dancing ballet... and well -- you see how he dances. I don't think he'll be horrible in other genre; from Vegas weeks, he's very good in other dances too...

    I saw the final dance he performed in Vegas again, and I don't have any idea why Adam was crying... and I certainly don't know why I started to do the same too. lol. His dancing was... heartwarming...

    looks like he has withdrawn from Season 6. That is a bummer.
    Wonder if he'll try again next year (I assume he would still be eligible).

    Press release issued this afternoon:
    Click to see Spoiler:


    Click to see Spoiler:
    Top 20 dancer Billy Bell has left SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE due to illness and will be replaced by Brandon Dumlao, 21, a Hip Hop dancer from Concord, CA. Dumlao will join the Top 20 this week as they compete on the first two-hour performance show Tuesday, Oct. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

    “We are disappointed that Billy cannot continue dancing in the competition on the advice of his doctor and wish him a speedy recovery,” said executive producer/judge Nigel Lythgoe. “However, we are fortunate that Brandon Dumlao has agreed to return.”
    I am very disappointed. Billy is a beautiful dancer. Tonight's performance was taped last week, so I hope we at least get to see him tonight.


    Tomorrow's show is live, though, so I wonder what they will do with Brandon?

    Will they allow him to try again? I sure hope so. He is one talented kid. I was looking forward to watching him this season.
