    Oh....my.....GOSH! Mad, mad respect to you sir, you have SUCH a gift! I am not a dancer by any stretch, but even though I may not have a working knowledge of the skills dancers must possess I can darn sure recognize phenomenal entertainment on a whole other level. While the popping genre of dance has not been a big draw for me over the years, your performances mesmerize me - I am 49 years old so popping was very prominent throughout my youth. Honestly, I almost fast forwarded past your routine for The Cut. Thankfully, I decided to watch it because I was curious about the balloon! What a loss that would have been for me if I hadn't watched it, and continue to re-watch it more than 6 months after the original performance (and will continue to do so for many more!) Best wishes for you and your wife (and future family!)

                            That's 10% of what that dude can do. He's been crush'n it for almost a decade, one of the best poppers of all time. Bout time he gets in the mainstream spotlight.

                                    I so wish I could just watch this straight on. I kept hearing the judges get excited about things that meant nothing with all those camera angles and cuts. Such a bummer.

I have grown to expect precise isolations and impressive technical feats, but I did not expect this. Back when I was an active dancer I tried to incorporate a more modern dance type feeling into street dance elements and to see John do it is just really neat.
