Atlanta, home of hip hop and plenty of great singers, can’t seem to generate any dancers on the Fox show “So You Think You Can Dance.”
For the second time, Fox used Atlanta as an audition site. But alas, it didn’t matter. Last night, the top 20 were announced. Atlantans were shut out (though a couple made it into the final 38.)
Over six seasons, 120 folks have tried to win the show. Exactly zero of them were from metro Atlanta. Zero. The closest? Kathryn McCormick is from Augusta.
In comparison, among the 95 contestants on “American Idol,” at least nine have had strong Atlanta ties.
It’s a bit of a mystery, isn’t it?
