Apparently someone has criticized Jean-Marc Generaux’s English speaking abilities. One of the judges, Tre Armstrong, correctly pointed out that it is seriously bad form to criticize someone who is speaking in a language that is not their mother tongue. To drive the point home (unnecessarily, in my opinon) she went on to add that she would challenge that person to come and do the same thing as Jean Marc en Francais.

Last week I blogged about the content of Jean-Marc Generaux’s comments. It seemed he basically repeated what other judges said and then threw in a sexist comment. I must say that he was way better this week. There were only a couple of minor sexist remarks and his level of respect towards the women (take a note, not ‘girls’ SYTYCD Canada) competitors. I am hoping this will continue.

I think the judge of the night though was Luther Brown after Tamina and Joey’s silly ‘jailhouse sleepover’ routine. Luther definately gets the ‘keeping it real’ award. He was hysterical. I am sure it will be up on youtube soon. Definitely worth a look. I will link it as soon as I find it.
