As you may recall, Dominic Sandoval, our local hoofer on "So You Think You Can Dance," told me that a national tour featuring the Top 10 finalists on the show, would be coming to Sacramento. Well, he was right.
This just in: The tour makes a stop at Arco Arena on Nov. 24; tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 11. (The tour kicks off Sept. 21 in Albany, N.Y., with 49 shows scheduled.)
Anyway, now that we've all gathered our collective breaths, I can say that Thursday night's results show was a real nail-biter.
After Wednesday night's competition, Dominic was in the bottom four, along with Kameron Bink and female contestants Sara Von Gillern and Dominic's new partner, Jaimie Goodwin.
Now, I admit I missed Dominic and Jaimie's Viennese waltz (to "Man of La Mancha," pictured above) because I was at the "American Idol" concert at Arco (see my posting below), but I caught a snippet of it Thursday night and heard the scolding both of them took from the judges.
Of course, those cheesy costumes didn't help much, and I do agree that Dominic's facial gestures might have been a little over the top, possibly - likely - because this dance was out of his comfort zone.
Anyway, the bottom four danced solo one more time before the results were meted out. If you missed it, Dominic's partner, Jaimie, was eliminated.
Then, it was between Dom and Kameron. Tough, tough choice. But our guy lives to dance another week!
Although, no more waltzes, please!
