Do you remember Sandra Colton? Um, I don't. Which is surprising, because she was a finalist on So You Think You Can Dance, one of the best things ever in the history of everything (or at least one of the best reality shows ever).
But she was the very first dancer eliminated in season 1, so it's understandable that my memory of her has faded over the years.
Here are some archived clips of Sandra's short time on the show, to refresh your memory:
Nope, I still don't remember her. Hmmm. Maybe this clip will help:
Oh, okay, that tapdancing solo does seem a little familiar. I ever-so-vaguely remember thinking that was kind of cool. But I guess it wasn't cool enough, because the judges axed her within minutes of that performance.
Anyhoo, if Sandra were to be remembered, by me or anyone else, I'm sure she'd rather not have "First Contestant Ever Eliminated On SYTYCD" written on her business card, résumé, or tombstone. So she's giving singing a shot now. And amusingly--hopefully in an intentional way--Sandra has recorded a remake of the Genesis hit "I Can't Dance" as her debut single.
Aw, Sandra's too hard on herself. She can dance. She looks pretty capable busting a move here, as the star of the new So You Think You Can Dance season 4 ads:
But can Sandra sing? Check out her first video and decide for yourself:
