SYTYCD Melinda Sullivan

Melinda Sullivan, 22: This Colombiana from Thousand Oaks, California is this season’s only tap dancer. She describes herself as "creative, rhythmical, artistic and inspired."
Why we think she can win: She’s beautiful and has major star quality. Even the SYTYCD judges couldn’t deny her beauty: “You’ve got a lovely face,” Nigel Lythgoe gushed after her performance last week.
Achilles Heel: Melinda’s biggest problem is that she’s a sloppy dancer. When she performed her Jive last week, Judge Mia Michaels told her, “You come across pigeon-toed when you dance.”

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
