Filipino-American contemporary dancer Marko Germar who is currently in the Top 6 spot of America’s top-rated dance show “So You Think You Can Dance” made Lady Gaga, who sat as guest judge on the show's July 27 episode, so emotional after his breathtaking performance of Jeff Buckley's "I Know Its Over".
When asked about her comment, the Gaga said:
I’m just so proud of you … you really love to dance and I know your mom’s here. There were so, so many things I did wrong when I was younger, and so many things I wish I could take back. And I felt every moment of that through your dance tonight. You are absolutely incredible, and congratulations.”
Which Germar later affirms:The show's executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe, meanwhile, summed it up by saying that that moment has extended past the parameters of just a TV show, a competition:
I actually dedicated that piece to her. I wasn’t the best kid — I was a bit of a brat — I said some things and I wanted to make sure, you know, I’m sorry, I love you.”
I’m sorry Cat I can’t be quick about this because I think we’ve just seen a moment here that is more than the competition. This isn’t now about coming first, second or third. Just watching this and seeing how he danced and how he’s taken this opportunity of speaking to his mother who I know supported him throughout his dancing. I think it’s an absolute remarkable moment that a son can turn around and say, “I love you,” because so many of us didn’t do that and so many of us now don’t have the opportunity of doing it and I do hope that other people watching this show tonight turn around to their mothers and say what they want to say while they have the opportunity of doing so.”
