Gaby Diaz So You Think You Can Dance Video


Gaby Diaz continued to show she’s a master of all trades on Monday’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” Watch below!

This week, each of the remaining dancers was paired with a “SYTYCD” All-Star, the first time this season routines were done with someone who wasn’t a competing contestant. Diaz was partnered with Joshua Allen, who actually WON the fourth season back in 2008. Now the two were tasked with a hip-hop routine to close the two-hour live broadcast.

But this wasn’t any normal street dance. Diaz actually portrayed a geisha and Allen was a ninja. They came together for an animated, creative give-and-take to Missy Elliott’s “I’m Really Hot” that led to a standing ovation from all the judges.

Even host Cat Deeley told Diaz afterward, “I couldn’t love you any more.” Jason Derulo agreed with that statement, and said to the contestant, “That was amazing. I didn’t know you had that little twerking in you!”

Indeed, Diaz is part of Team Stage, and came on to the show as a tap dancer. But she manages to not just handle every new style that’s thrown her way, but also blow away the judges and her competition. “You’ve mastered every language there is in dance and you continue to prove you have something else up your sleeve every week,” gushed Paula Abdul.

She went on to tell Diaz, “You are such a remarkable contestant, and there’s no doubt you are going to have such a brilliant career as a dancer.” And head judge Nigel Lythgoe even picked Diaz as the best Team Stage dancer of the night. Check out the video below!
