Katie Holmes'So You Think You Can Dance'? Katie Holmes thinks so.

On July 23's 100th episode of 'SYTYCD,' the actress will perform a song-and-dance tribute to Judy Garland that was choreographed by Tyce Diorio and Dion Beebe. She's helping promote the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which gives dance scholarships to underprivileged students and was created by the show's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, 'Dancing With the Stars' judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and film director/choreographer Adam Shankman ('Hairspray').

"I can't say anything about it -- all I know is that Katie Holmes is an incredibly talented dancer, singer, entertainer, much more so than other people have gotten to experience," Shankman told MTV News.

But Holmes' performance is just one of the ways 'SYTYCD' is celebrating its 100th episode ...Katie Holmes'So You Think You Can Dance'? Katie Holmes thinks so.

But Holmes' performance is just one of the ways 'SYTYCD' is celebrating its 100th episode. The show, which recently earned four Emmy nominations for choreography, will bring back fan-favorite dances, including Mia Michaels' 'The Bench' and Wade Robson's 'Ramalama (Bang Bang)' and 'The Hummingbird and the Flower.'

Last night's performance episode proved to be a special one, with guest judge Ellen DeGeneres. And an emotional routine about breast cancer, also choreographed by Diorio, moved the judges to tears and had Lythgoe declaring that it was sure to be nominated for next year's Emmys.
