Maria at A Time To Dance attended the Baltimore show and files an excellent report:
The most interesting thing about seeing the routines from a TV show translated to the stage (pretty literally, it seemed) was seeing what worked better on stage than on TV, and also what was really better suited to TV. The individual solos were better on TV. Routines whose strength lay in a great deal of facial expression, such as the Midnight Cabaret were better on TV.
Hands down, the group performances were all better live. There was so much cutting between shots and angles on the show that I was never able to get a good idea for each piece as a coherent work. The Shane Sparks Matrix routine was fantastic live. The choreography is really designed for the piece to be seen as a whole. I liked it on TV but appreciated it even more in the round.

Is it possible for a video to be meditative? Our friend Leee at T!YBE (Now Dumber!) found one of the most beautiful videos I've seen on the web. It's not SYTYCD-related, but I highly recommend.
