Melanie Moore and Marko Germar dance Contemporary on So You Think You Can Dance

Omigosh, this is my favorite couple of the season! Marko is from Guam!
What an amazing routine! I loved this!
Megan Mullally: Chills, crying. It was so beautiful. It’s one of the speical ones.
Mary Murphy: A number comes along that is magical. there’s just amazing artistry at what you do.
Nigel Lythgoe: This could be the first Emmy-nomintated routine.

Got Something to Add?
Marko constantly shifting his feet to get balance really distracted me. I like Melanie too, because she's beautiful, but I don't see how she's the "queen beast". Not unless you go by the face. There are a couple of really talented girls who have great technique, too. Nigel is going to ruin it by overpraising her.
It was a good performance and I thought they danced it amazingly well (as they should have).
Guess I just didn't think it was ALL that though. Don't get me wrong.. I enjoyed watching it, but I dunno... it didn't strike me as anything really special?
Here's Marko's facebook where he proudly says He is Filipino
Marko Germar is Filipino. He moved from the Philippines to Guam when he was 10 years old. Here's an article pertaining to this http://www.guampdn.com/article/20110616/NEWS01/106160325
Amazing performance. My favorite couple of the group. I hope Nigel don't screw them with the over praising, because they are likable and talented.
The girls are great this season, but the guys are really impressing me. My favorites so far are Melanie, Nick, Marko and Wadi.
I felt exactly as the judges... I was crying>>> like Meghan said...so moved, maybe more so than any other dance I've seen on this show... I was thinking O M G, this is so MAGICAL>>> and that's what Mary said.. and I was also thinking... this deserves an emmy-- wow look how far Travis has come>>>>and then Nigel says exactly that!!
I am totally psychic... but it's not hard to be when it's so obvious... WOW AMAZING SEASON!!! Melanie has been my fav since the beginning. Her skill as a dancer is so fantastic and her art is truly wow as well.. what a talented young woman... such emotion and passion in her dancing.
A couple other standouts as well were Ashley- thought her hip hop was great, Jordan is a powerhouse, and Caitlynn, (She was awesome, and so lucky to have danced SO HOT AND SEXY WITH ROBERT -YOWZA!)
It would have been better with a good set, instead of an empty stage. How about a bunch of greecian statues inside a museum , and then the 2 in the middle come alive, and at the end, they rejoin them for a freeze ...as some people come over to admire them.
the best of the night! so far along jordan and tadd melanie and marko the best ! i will vote for marko moore or tadd casonova but either way melanie moore the best along marko wow go tandem!
Oh Nigel - last week I tweeted Nigel that Sonya's geisha routine will be the first routine nominated for an Emmy. I still think so - it was brilliant.
Yup. This is another case of excessive overpimping. Like Tyce's cancer dance with Ade and Whatserface. Both are good, yes. But not amazing - not by any stretch, IMO.
