In the worst kept secret in town it is now official Penny Higgs is having to leave So You Think You Can Dance Australia because of cracked ribs.

It is unfortunate for Penny as she had made it to the top 8 and seemed to be very popular (that I am still trying to work out).

She us understandably upset.  “I am just devastated,” she said through tears. “I have just been waking up crying. I can’t sleep because I just want to dance. I am at may worst right now and it’s all playing out on a TV show. Dancing is my life and I gave 110 per cent to this competition.”

Her replacement is yet to be announced, but chances are it will be Gianne who was the last female eliminated. This situation occurred in the US version of SYTYCD and Comfort a hip hop dancer who had been eliminated the week before returned to stay for another couple of weeks.

Full story here.

Sucks for her to be in pain, but YAY! Now the show can get back to the dancing. The judges pimping of her and the focus on her personality when her technique was AWFUL was ridic.

Gianne & Talia in the finale and Talia winning the whole shebang FTMFW.

Penny’s replacement is Gianne – somebody who went to the taping posted about it on the OS forums.
