phillipattmore.jpgYou have got to hand it to “So You Think You Can Dance” tapper Phillip Attmore who continued to smile (and dance) after losing his dad to cancer last week and getting eliminated from the competition tonight.

This kid is a class freaking act.

I spoke with Phillip backstage not long after he learned his fate and he couldn’t have been more gracious about the judges’ decision, the fact that he was saddled with ballroom two weeks in a row and about what’s next for him.

Two words (both proper nouns): Ryan Kasprzak.

The older brother of season 5 finalist Evan Kasprzak — whom we know from his own “So You Think You Can Dance” audition experiences — is a very close friend of Phillip’s and the two are talking about teaming up.

I’ll let Phillip tell you…

Good kid.

Would like to see him do well.

By the way, his female counterpart this week, fellow tapper Bianca Revels, was so distraught after her elimination that she decided not to do any post-show chatting, but I would just like to say that I loved your “dance for your life,” Ms. Bianca, and I wanted to yell that at you when you walked by after the show, but you looked too upset and I wasn’t sure if yelling was really appropriate, but I thought your personality came through loud and clear, lady, and it sucks to see you go so soon.

That is all.
