Congratulations, Joshua and Barack
In honour of the So you think you can dance finale and the USA presidential election, here is my very first (maybe only?) English post on this blog.
Months ago, Joshua Allen won So you think you can dance 2008. Yesterday, Norwegian dancers and dance fans saw it happen. Joshua is a hiphop dancer, 19 years old from Texas. He is the youngest winner so far. Before the competition, he had no formal dance training. Every week he received excellent reviews from the jury, and towards the end of the season he was praised for his versatility despite his lack of experience. On the day of the finale, nobody knew who would win the competition. It could have been anybody. The finalists this year were (in my opinion) the best yet. But to see such a young hiphop dancer win, was phenomenal. Congratulations!
Now for this morning. Everyone knows it. Today I am proud of my (perhaps temporary) nationality. Finally we have a president who can make us proud. Watch his speech, and remember this day.
