Mismatched Pair

Eileen Clarke, sitting in for Adam B Vary at, got a less-than-warm welcome from commenters yesterday. We enjoyed today's piece, not that we necessarily agree with her:

"So instead of cutting B-boy Dominic, whose limited ''tricks'' will be more apparent with every solo he gets, or Cedric, who has yet to prove he can delve into a style other than hip-hop, they cut an extremely versatile dancer like Ricky. It makes me think the judges are allowing themselves a bit of favoritism. Does having hip-hoppers and breakers draw younger viewers than say, boys who do pirouettes and grands jetés? If I see Cedric do a decent quickstep or lyrical dance, then I'll reconsider."
