I had forgotten how much it bugged me, during last year’s So You Think You Can Dance Canada, to hear the judges say, “Give it up for…!!!” about 50 times per show.
Jean-Marc Genereaux, you know I love you, honey. And I know, I know, English is not your first language. But BY GOD, if you do not learn some new phrases, I am going to have a seizure. There are CHILDREN’S LIVES on the line here. Be kind.
Here are some friendly suggestions:
“Let’s hear it for…!”
“Put your hands together for…!”
“Make some noise for…!”
“How awesome is…!”
“Rock the house for…!”
“Is !! the best, or what?”
“Can I get a ‘HELL YEAH’ over here?”
“Raise the roof for…!”
“Pinch my toes and call me a jelly doughnut!”
Well, maybe not that last one.
