'So You Think You Can Dance' Star To Appear on Oscars

'So You Think You Can Dance' Season Six contestant LegacyHaving connections pays off for 'So You Think You Can Dance' contestant Jonathan "Legacy" Perez. Zap2it has confirmed that Legacy will be a part of the Academy Awards, dancing with The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. He received the position after he helped 'SYTYCD' judge Adam Shankman with the audition process. Shankman is producing the Oscars with Bill Mechanic.

Unlike the Emmys, which have an Outstanding Choreography category, having dancers on the Oscars feels out of place. The five songs nominated for Best Original Song don't have any place for breakdancers, so my only guess is that the show will open with a flashy performance. Legacy hasn't provided any solid details to how he will be involved.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Results December 9: Legacy and Mollee Eliminated

by Sharon Knolle, posted Dec 10th 2009 2:15AM
According to Adam Shankman, we may already have a winner on 'So You Think You Can Dance': Kathryn McCormick, whose cha cha with partner Ryan Di Lello he called "vibrant and electric," exclaiming, "that may have been the performance of the season."

Shankman went on to compare Kathryn to last season's winner, Jeanine Mason: "Last night for Kathryn was like, a star is born. I said to myself, 'Oh my God, she could be this year's Jeanine.' I didn't see Jeanine happen until the finale. Last night, that cha cha clinched you, that was it."

Judging by Ryan's double-take and the gasps from the audience, the other biggest surprise of the evening was that he was staying and Legacy Perez, the b-boy dancer from Miami with a fondness for spinning on his head, was leaving. Also leaving: Mollee Gray, who had danced for her life several times throughout the competition, but couldn't help crying as she learned that she had not made it to the finale.

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 8 Revealed

(S06E20)
I go into these elimination shows expecting a lot of pad and filler. But when it's a dance show, I want to see dancing; which is why I'm always a little perplexed when musical guests who don't dance show up. This week's musical guest was Snoop Dogg, and I really enjoyed it. And yes, I know that Snoop does little more than bounce and swagger.

It was that either he or the producers were smart about how to put together his stage show. Hip-hop videos are known for dancing, so why not bring that dancing to the live show? Joining Snoop on stage was Quest, a former winner of America's Best Dance Crew, as well as the dance home for three former SYTYCD contestants: Ryan, Dominic and Hok.

What about the results, though? I was surprised that even though we've switched to voting for individual dancers, it was still two couples from last night's performance show that wound up in the bottom.

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 14 Perform

Ashleigh Di Lello(S06E15) After last week's lackluster performances, I was starting to wonder about the vaunted strength of this season's Top 20. But the 14 remaining dancers came back very strong this week, with improvements across the board. There was only one dance that completely disappointed me, but throughout the night, I cannot easily see the Top Ten dancers we're working toward.

One thing that's a little frustrating when we get down to a smaller number of dancers like this, and they're only performing once ... we get a ton of filler. The judges went on and on about each contestant. Maybe FOX should consider shortening the episodes to an hour-and-a-half during these weeks and give us more episodes of some of their great sitcoms like 'Til Death or Brothers.

Hmmm -- maybe I can handle the rambling judges after all.
