Too Much To Tivo this week."Melanie and Marko never had a bad routine," Wong told
Still, he says bboyer Tadd shouldn't be ignored. "People don't realize how great he is and how hard it is to pick up ballroom as he did several times this season."
"I am biased. My season started with the all-stars immediately. So you didn't have someone pulling you down or pulling you up for that matter," Wong says. "Some people this year suffered or gained because of the change."
"The quality of the pieces from the choreographers would have also been better straight away," he continues.
SYTYCD Season 7 kicked off with just 10 dancers who performed with the same pool of all-stars each week. This year, the judges chose 20 contestants, who performed with each other until the top 10, when they were then partnered with all-stars.
Wong also doesn't like that this year there isn't a set bunch of all-stars, with the group of alum rotating each week. "It doesn't allow the audience to get to know them," he says.
Wong, who was slated to appear as an all-star himself this season, was disqualified from Season 7 while rehearsing for a Bollywood number with Billy Bell, which resulted in a rupture of his Achilles tendon. Just one year and three days later, while auditioning for Step Up 4 (which will star fellow SYTYCD alum Kathryn McCormick), Wong suffered the same injury on the opposite leg.
It won't be until at least September or October before Wong is able to walk again, which put him out of commission for several other projects he was working on, including the possibility of a reoccurring spot in the new NBC series Smash (he appears as a dancer in the pilot).
