News.com.au have a story which states that Sabra the winner of last years US version of SYTYCD will not be making a guest appearance on the Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance.
Sabra and Kameron Binks are in Australia as part of an East Coast tour with Young Performers Australia and will appear at Myer in Brisbane city this Friday to greet fans.
The article said:
It's understood the organisers have approached Channel Ten in an attempt to have the dynamic duo appear on SYTYCD as guest performers.
But it seems Ten are happy to snub the pair. A spokesman told Qconfidential that "We would prefer to keep the Australian dancers at the forefront".
The US version was a ratings winner for Channel ten last year, and the station doesn't want to increase their ratings by having Sabra and Kameron perform! Instead we will have another Monday night performance by a third rate Australian Idol performer, or the over exposed Delta Goodrem.
Do they think Sabra and Kameron will highlight that the Australian dancers are not as good as the US ones?
The producers should have confidence the final six will not be shown up by the American couple.
This fan of the show is extremely disappointed by the cultural cringe Australia is showing at the start of the 21st century.
