Meet Alexie Agdeppa, So You Think You Can Dance Season 7 Contestant
So excited to be covering Alexie’s run on So You Think You Can Dance.
I kindly invite visitors to this site to please join me in supporting Alexie by voting and spreading the word!
This is after all a reality television show first, technique and ability second. It isn’t looking for the best dancer but the most popular and the favorite.
As in any reality show, the producers and the judges have their own favorites and they are usually the ones who get highlighted the most– in a way affecting the way viewer’s votes.
If a contestant isn’t showcased enough due to poor editing or lack of airtime, then the viewers won’t know enough and the contestant’s personality wouldn’t show making it hard to pick up the phone to vote for that contestant.
It is my hope that Alexie’s bubbly, full of energy vibe will not go unnoticed on the show! She got the technique and dancing prowess covered, just need those producers to showcase her personality more!
