Best Clip Ever – SPOILER!!!

Um….so, Marianya totally spoiled this for me. I caught the last 20 minutes of the episode and she narrated the previous parts for me. So, I knew this was coming, yet it still didn’t prepare me for how awesome this clip was. It was like a monologue/scene from “Chorus Line” or something. OOOhhhh, can we do a modernization/twist on “Chorus Line” and use this scene word for word? Lol.

Do NOT watch this video unless you want me and Marianya to spoil the show for you. 😛

SYTYCD S7 E4 Vegas Week Music

And now for the main event! We all know the music SYTYCD has used so far has already been amazing. I mean, just 3 episodes in, we’ve already discovered some great musicians. [Speaking of, I played Sam Sparro’s “Back & Gold” Sam Sparro - Sam Sparro (Bonus Track Version) - Black & Gold in the office and turned several unsuspecting co-workers onto his music.]

Y’all are always such a great help with the music. Tonight, I’ll need your help more than any other night this season so far. I have to work, so won’t be able to watch the show till later. As you recognize or find the songs, please list them in the comments for me and for other readers. I’ll give you kudos, I promise!

And in must a small token of my appreciation, you can check out all the Season 7 music so far here.
