So You Think You Can Dance Malaysia 2 - Top 20 Roll Call

May 29 2008

Twenty finalists ; 10 guys and 10 girls have been chosen.

The guys are - Ray, Raymond, Fairul, Hanafi, Hong, Billy, Belalang, Chee Wei, Black and Sly.

The girls are - Farah, Samantha, Vivian, Zef, Joridah, Cecilia (CC), Jojo, Zen, Sim and Sarah.

Seventeen of the finalists are from the peninsula while three are from Sabah. Considering that one heat was held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, it was surprising to note that there were no finalists from the neighbouring state of Sarawak. Could it be due to a dearth of talents from Sarawak or that Sarawakians are not really into social dancing?

The finalists and their families were interviewed. The finalist told us a little about themselves; how they got into dancing, what they do for a living, their aspirations, etc. About 7 or 8 of the finalists said that they are either dance instructors or professional dancers. Is this good for the competition?

Next week, the contestants will be paired off at random and do a dance picked also at random. We wish them good luck and hope that they will be matched with a partner whom they can click and do a dance that both are good at.

Best Regards,

Dance Aficionado
