I was fortunate enough to interview SYTYCD judge Mary Murphy on National Dance Day. I asked her about a few topics regarding Season 11 since there have been a few things on viewers' minds.
Here are some highlights:
On the #BallroomMassacre last week:
"We never know who they [the fans] are going for."
On Ricky Ubeda being so far ahead of the pack:
"He certainly was challenged in the Viennese Waltz. If he doesn't improve and he hasn't dropped down, it will go into America's hands, by the way. I think he is extremely talented. Let's see what he's going to do when he gets a Quick Step. For most of the kids, ballroom is often a challenge."
On needing ballroom lessons to compete on the show:
"A few lessons won't cut it to get them through a routine."
On the missing "Dance for Your Life" Solos:
"By the finale you will see solos by themselves…without a doubt."
