"They brought me in for one episode, and I stole the show"
Sparks: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Daniel: You said he knocked you out. You also wanted to see Pasha [Kovalev] and Sara's West Coast swing again. What were some of the other highlights for you over the season, both in terms of your work, and the work that the other choreographers did?
Sparks: One of my biggest highlights was when I did two of the opening numbers. It was the one when I did one of Wade Robson's songs, and I had the wind blow at the end. I had Sabra blowing everybody into, like, these crazy formations at the end. That was my favorite. And then my second one, on my side, was The Matrix, when Lauren came out dressed in all black, and all the others were dressed in suits, and she just totally controlled that whole number. That was my favorite. But when it comes to anything else, Mia just blew me away with the number that she did about her father and her in heaven. That was just, like, straight beautiful. And as far as, like, the audition process, that Brian Gaynor guy, the guy with scoliosis.
Daniel: He did the robot.
Sparks: Yeah. He just blew my mind, I loved everything that he did. Hopefully, everyone else will see that and I can take him and do millions of things with him, 'cause America loved him. And I'm doing everything I can to take him to another level with the project that I'm doing.
Daniel: This is Backdown, the sequel to…
Sparks: You Got Serrrrrved.
Daniel: Is he in that yet? Is that confirmed, or no?
Sparks: Everything is confirmed, um, how would you say it, verbally? But we haven't signed a contract, 'cause this is the first time I've seen him since the show, but we've talked to his parents, we've talked to him, and everything is set up, but right now we're just trying to get dates for the movie. So until we get those dates, you know, things are probably going to be at a halt. But as soon as we know that, we're going to call him up and get some dates for him to come out here, and come out and do his thing.
Daniel: Were there any dancers that you were hoping to work with but didn't get the chance to?
Sparks: I will put it like this, because I did get to work with most of 'em, but there was a couple of people who auditioned for the show that I was hoping would have made the show, and I couldn't wait to work with -- a guy by the name of Twitch. He made it all the way to Vegas, you know what I mean? And Jessi [Peralta] got cut off the show really early too, and that was another one I wanted to work with and didn't get to work with her either.
