Hiphop videos from So You Think You Can Dance Season 10 LA auditions, incl. Bboy Morris, Fik-shun

So You Think You Can Dance has started up again. On May 14, 2013 they aired footage from the Los Angeles auditions. Among the hiphop highlights: an audition by street performer Fik-shun who was given an immediate ticket to the Las Vegas round, and Bboy Morris (member of Fallen Kings, winner at UK Bboy of the Year and high place finisher at Redbull BC One) who made it to the choreography round but didn't advance. IMO -- the two should have been treated equally -- either both in the choreo round or both through to Vegas.

Shane Sparks - setting the record straight on his views about Wade Robson being molested by Michael Jackson

There has been a lot of buzz in the last week -- seems like Perez Hilton didn't fully quote Shane Sparks when it reported that Shane believed Michael Jackson molested Wade Robson (a charge made by Wade to TMZ). The full quote in today's  
"Wow! TMZ can't wait to destroy a person's reputation.They call me for a statement about Wade and Michael and I told them this is hard because I respect both of them. I know Wade personally and Michael through his music. I have so much respect for Michael that's why I wanted to make a statement. I told them I'm on the fence on this because I wasn't there, so I don't know what's true. I did tell them I saw gifts from Michael which is normal for Michael to do (nothing weird about that) and that Wade took us to the NeverLand but that's it. I never took a side on who I believed."
