Today we flash back just 3 years to when Aussie dancer Michael Dameski stopped the show on So You Think You Can Dance Australia.
This clip is his repeat -if briefer- performance on the US edition.
Judge Paula Abdul told TV Tonight, it was the most amazing routine she had seen on any version of the show.
“Professionally, I’ve never witnessed anything as special as this. You can’t even articulate it. I can’t begin to tell you, it was that awesome,” she said.
“It prompted an emotional response. I jumped up. The rest of the judges jumped up and the entire studio audience was on their feet, screaming and teary-eyed.”
The applause went on for so long the show had to drastically edit it down and re-introduce the remaining male dancers.
