You may recall that the last time a same-sex couple auditioned on So You Think You Can Dance, judge Nigel Lythgoe told them they "would alienate the audience" and "I like to see guys be guys and girls be girls on stage." Lythgoe's comments were condemned by GLAAD and he eventually issued an apology. Properly cowed, last night Lythgoe was much kinder to another same-sex pair, who performed much better than the ones that had caused the earlier controversy, bringing the female judges to tears.
At least now same sex dancing can be represented by talented folk... reinforcing the fact that your sexuality does not instantly make you have talent - talent makes you have talent regardless of orientation!
