  1. Bad.
    Concept and Choreography
    Just awful.

  2. I'm not willing to pan the concept based on a 2-minute clip. But, I will agree that the choreography shown is indeed awful. It barely rises to the level of 2nd rate high school dance team choreography.

  3. Looks like a very poor version of a GLEE episode to me.

  4. I saw it on Tuesday. Amazing. Awesome. The dancing, especially from the lead, is incredible. The costumes and music are gorgeous. I was bawling by the end. If it ever comes to your city, trust me, it's worth seeing.

  5. The great thing about the internet is that it allows people to make completely uninformed and ignorant judgements based on little video clips.
