Ah, yes. The Shoved-Down-Our-Throat phenomena. Some psychology student should really do their dissertation on the SYTYCD S-D-O-T reflex. Maybe they could uncover the source of this passive-aggressive response to perceived victimization by a television dance panel.
How unique is this to SYTYCD? I watch Idol religiously, but Idol fans don't have the same passive response to a difference of opinion with the judges. The attitude among AI fans is more "throw the bums out", or just voting their feelings. ("I'll show them! Hello? AT&T? I'd like to order your unlimited texting plan.\, please.")
That begs the question, why do Idol voters feel empowered, and SYTYCD voters feel powerless? They both have the same vote. At least they do on SYTYCD after the Top 10. Maybe that's the problem - the fact that the judges pick who goes home for the first five weeks?
It is, as Yul Brenner would say, "A puzzlement!"
