SYTYCD update w videos: Emilio (IaMmE) one step closer to Top 20 with 5 other hiphop & animation dancers

So You Think You Can Dance aired its Las Vegas week episode, cutting the field down over 100 dancers to 33. Next week we hear the top 20. Among the choices are Emilio 'Millie' Dosal of IaMmE (America's Best Dance Crew Season 6 winners), and 5 other interesting hip hop or animation dancers: Mariah Spears, Markus Shields, Dorian Bluprint Hector, Fik-Shun Stegal, and Jade Zuberi. Of the group, I am pretty sure that Fik-Shun will be chosen for the top 20, and I hope that Emilio and some of the others make it as well.

Click here to watch an interview with Napoleon and Tabitha D'umo, who were in charge of the hip hop routine for Vegas week. In it you can see Emilio and some of the others on this list (it's not embedding properly).

SNV Crew from India

At last year's Hip-Hop International competition, India was represented for the first time ever by SNV Crew.  Despite the fierce competition and placing 8th in the Adult Division, many spectators (including myself) could not stop praising their performance at the end of the night.  Here's the latest production from SNV Crew.  From totheculturetv YouTube.
