Maddie Ziegler, Travis Wall “So You Think You Can Dance” Video: Watch 250th Episode Performance!
Maddie Ziegler and Travis Wall gave a special performance for the 250th episode of “So You Think You Can Dance” on Monday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, season 13 marks Ziegler’s first turn as a judge on “SYTYCD.” The former “Dance Moms” star has been a fitting addition to the panel, as “The Next Generation” edition of the FOX competition focuses on aspiring dancers between the ages of 8 and 13. And despite their youth, the contestants have been performing mature, complicated routines designed by adult choreographers.
Those two aspects merged in a new way on tonight’s special episode, which featured 13-year-old Ziegler performing with Travis Wall, one of the show’s most beloved choreographers. Together, she and the 28-year-old pro did a TK routine. Naturally, it was flawless.
And though he’s now 28 and an Emmy-nominated choreographer, Wall knows just what it’s like to be in the young contestants’ shoes. That’s because he competed during season 2 at age 18. That was back in 2006, already 10 years ago.
Wall ended up taking second place, and has gone on to become one of the series’ most successful and well-known alumni. That made him an extremely appropriate choice to give a special performance with Ziegler for the 250th episode, bridging the older and young generations, as well as the past of “SYTYCD” and its future.
