Jesse and I have watched this girl’s 20 second solo dance at least a dozen times. I posted a dance of hers a few weeks back, quoting the head judge who said that she may be the best female dancer to ever grace the show. Jesse and I agree– she’s simply better than anyone in all 8 seasons. Hands down (in our book).
Even more incredible, they say that she thought of this solo just moments before she performed it. At the end of the video, Cat Deely (the host) says that during the commercial break, she saw Melanie with headphones on in the corner backstage, quickly trying to choreograph it! Amazing, seeing as most of the contestants work on them long in advance.
