Okay, Nigel is an asshole, no doubt about it. And a homophobe, to a creepy degree.\ \ But there''s one thing I really like about him--he''s not a sucker for sob stories. On AI, the sob stories have been sickening. "It would mean so much for me to be on this show because eight years ago my neighbor''s cousin''s realtor had benign skin cancer and it''s really affected me." Danny Gokey''s dead wife got him into the top 12. I think that if you''ve got a sob story, you''re disqualified. (Mike Lynch''s new baby was a variation on the theme.)\ \ On SOTYCD, Nigel acknowledges the sob stories, but he doesn''t let them affect him. Sadly, it seems that the other judges make a sob story an immediate pass to choreography. If it weren''t for Nigel, though, they''d all be through to Vegas.
