The First Same-Sex “So You Think You Can Dance” Routine Was Worth The Wait

"So You Think You Can Dance" has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it's not perfect.

This High School Kid’s Michael Jackson Dance Is Blowing My Mind

When high school junior Brett Nichols performed this Michael Jackson-inspired "Billie Jean" dance routine at Pitman High School's Talent Rally (the action starts around 1:12 on the video), he probably didn't expect to become an overnight internet star -- but then, how could he not expect to get attention with moves like that!?
