'So You Think You Can Dance' Reveals Top 10 and Season 8 All-Stars (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 15th 2011 12:51AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'While there was joy in the studio on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) this evening, thanks to a record eight Emmy nominations for the show, it was still elimination night. But that didn't mean they couldn't spare a few moments of congratulations for the series' first nod in Best Reality Competition Series and Cat Deeley's well-deserved nomination for Best Reality Host.

Deeley then put that hosting right to business, working her way through the night, splitting the dancers in half, with three couples facing elimination and three couples moving directly into the Top 10 and the All-Stars next week. And, for the first time this season, the eliminated pair were not an existing couple.

Nigel Lythgoe Remembers Farting in Front of the Royal Family (VIDEO)

These days, Nigel Lythgoe is a big time producer and a judge on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' As he explained Wednesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), he hasn't always been so smooth. Lythgoe, who started his career as a dancer, talked about an early show gone wrong at the Royal Variety Performance, which is held annually in the U.K.

Eartha Kitt was singing 'Aquarius' at this particular performance, backed by a boy dancer. "I had to go behind the pair of them, put my arms around them, and using my thighs, lift them both up in the air," Lythgoe explained. "Well, every bit of air left my body."

That was Lythgoe's attempt to word things delicately. Holly Robinson Peete would have none of it, and asked, "Did you poot?" Lythgoe was taken aback, and assured them he did not poo. It was then explained to him she said "poot," with a "t," which means fart. "Yes, thank you very much for helping me explain, translating," said Lythgoe. "I've heard the word in America is 'fart.'" And now he knows we have a multitude of words to explain passing gas in front of the Royal Family.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 'So You Think You Can Dance'It was a packed night, and a night of sadness, as the Top 12 took to the stage for the last time with their partners on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). It was a critical time in the show, as next week the Top 10 are paired up with 'SYTYCD' All-Stars, and it's the Top 10 that goes on tour.

So to help alleviate the stress, Jesse Tyler Ferguson ('Modern Family') joined the panel. He does have a background in stage and dance, but he proved to be mostly there for comic relief. His off-the-cuff comments kept everyone light and in stitches.

The biggest laughs came when he abruptly suggested that Clarice should marry him. This after a beautiful lyrical hip-hop routine she performed with her partner Jess.

so you think you can dance canada, sytycdc, eliminated contestants

No one wants to be sent home (especially first!), but on last night's 'So You Think You Can Dance Canada,' jazz dancer Cassandra Flammini and contemporary dancer Adam Asselin-Rioux were season 4's first eliminated contestants.

It was especially bittersweet for Montreal's Adam A, who, after just not making the top 22, was called in last minute to replace an injured Moses. AOL TV Canada caught up with Cassandra and Adam A, who reflected on what went wrong and their future plans.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Results: Two More Dancers Eliminated (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2011 2:25AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'In seasons past, the judges have split up couples in their eliminations, but that hasn't been the case leading into tonight's cuts on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). Each week, they've cut a paired couple, leaving all the other couples intact.

Even in the week when four people were eliminated out of a possible six, they cut two paired couples. That has to add to the pressure when competing as it must feel like your fate may be as tied to how well your partner does than how well you do.

But nothing in the rules says you have to do that, so would it continue as the Top 14 was whittled down to the Top 12? We have some strong couples, but there have been some instances where one partner has clearly shown more promise than the other.

A Little Quirky Can Be a Great Thing on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (VIDEO)

Ricky Jaime & Ryan Ramirez, 'So You Think You Can Dance'It was another night of unforgettable performances as the Top 14 dancers took to the stage on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). This time, joining Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy on the judging panel, were Carmen Electra and Travis Wall.

Electra detailed her own extensive background in dance, so we wouldn't think she was just a pretty face, while 'SYTYCD' fans know Wall as the runner-up in Season 2. Since Season 5 he's become a staple in the roster of choreographers turning in brilliant performances, so it was an exciting evolution to see him judging the show.

Always a favorite of the judges, Ryan Ramirez impressed yet again in a "quirky" jazz routine with partner Ricky Jaime.

Sonja MorganSonja Morgan's life (and financial woes) have been splashed on the front pages of tabloids and TV screens thanks to her role on 'Real Housewives of New York City,' but now the reality star is speaking out about her messy divorce and money troubles.

According to the New York Post, Morgan may lose her Upper East Side town house.

"I'm sure the world thinks, 'Sonja doesn't have to worry, she's got that husband there for her.' But I'm on my own," Sonja said.

Sonja claims in court papers that John Adams Morgan, her 80-year-old ex-husband, is refusing to pay her a $3 million divorce judgment and $300,000 in back alimony. Sonja also claims he has barred her from selling and visiting properties she co-owns with him in Colorado and France.

Last fall, Sonja filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Nabs Lady Gaga as Guest Judge

Lady GagaLady Gaga has already dished out the advice as a guest mentor on the 'American Idol' this year, and now we hear that she'll be bringing her brand of theatricality to 'So You Think You Can Dance' later on this summer.

A Fox source told 'Entertainment Weekly' that Lady Gaga will be a guest judge on 'SYTYCD' sometime before the talent show's Season 8 Finale in August.

Judge Nigel Lythgoe hinted at a Gaga appearance during a recent interview with Yahoo. He said she'll "give great advice on how to handle yourself, how to be creatve with what you do, and how to be a fabulous performer. She has actually done what I want these [contestants] to do, which is get an audience behind them."

Amazing Guest Performers and Elimination Results on 'SYTYCD' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 1st 2011 3:02AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'When the judges left the set to deliberate their choice for elimination on this week's 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX), it was a double-whammy. First, they were going to have to send home two dancers, which is particularly difficult this season as the caliber of talent is so high.

But, perhaps just as tragic, they missed the guest performance by Eric Luna and Georgia Ambarian. Cat Deeley introduced them as "the current United States and World Theatrical Ballroom Champions." All we saw was flawless execution and lighter-than-air choreography.

It's almost impossible to describe how effortless they made some of the most complex and stunning lifts look. Honestly, it looked as if Ambarian's bones must have been filled with helium, she just soared so light.

One Steamy Dance Leads to a Judges' Kissing Frenzy on 'SYTYCD' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 30th 2011 12:33AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'It was another night of superb dancing as the Top 16 took to the stage on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). But as Cat Deeley noted, there was also a theme on the night: A battle of the sexes, of sort.

That battle got a little steamy after a Nappytabs routine featuring Melanie Moore and Marko Germar. The story of the dance was that Marko was stood up at the altar on his wedding day. As his best friend Melanie tries to console him, he realizes she's the one he truly loves. More dramatically, he sealed that realization with a kiss.

That inspired a veritable kissapalooza on the judging panel as first Nigel Lythgoe kissed Mary Murphy, then guest judge Kristin Chenoweth laid one on Lil C, and finally Nigel came across the dais to kiss Lil C as well. It was all Deeley could do to keep control of the proceedings.

'So You Think You Can Dance': Which Four Dancers Were Cut? (VIDEO)

Nigel Lythgoe, 'So You Think You Can Dance'Last week it was hugs all around as no one was eliminated from 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). So the entire Top 20 took to the stage again to show us what they had. Only there will be no reprieve this time.

Further, instead of just losing one guy and one girl this week, two couples will be going home. Cat Deeley explained that while we would still have our bottom three couples based on America's vote, the judges are only able to save one of them. Thus, the stakes couldn't be higher, as America can be fickle in their voting decisions.

Mary Murphy Recounts Chaotic 'So You Think You Can Dance' Live Show (VIDEO)

Mary Murphy on 'Access Hollywood Live'Four dancers will be going home on tonight's episode of 'So You Think You Can Dance,' thanks to a logjam created when no one was eliminated on last week's live show. Thursday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), judge Mary Murphy talked about the confusion of that first live show, and the snap decision to keep everyone for one more week.

The first live show was chaotic from start to finish. The judges had thought they'd be an eliminating an injured contestant, but they battled through to dance a solo that made the judges re-think things.

"We all looked at each other, we couldn't make up our minds," said Murphy. "The heads of Fox were down on that stage during the commercial break. We were figuring out what to do. We were like, 'Oh, we can't let anybody go home right now!' So we had to get all that approval in a matter of seconds. Cat did not know what was going on up onstage at all."

Sasha Mallory & Alexander Fost, 'So You Think You Can Dance'When dance is amazing, it transcends the technique and becomes a thing of emotion. It can move you. The beauty of the level of talent required to be on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) is that you have the talent level required to move beyond the choreography into art.

Whereas many dance shows leave you impressed with their style or technique, 'SYTYCD' often pushes us beyond words. Tonight's judging panel featured the legendary Debbie Reynolds, and she was privileged to witness just such a moment.

The Nappytabs hip-hop routine performed by Sasha Mallory and Alexander Fost moved both Reynolds and Mary Murphy to tears. Napoleon and Tabitha D'umo have proven themselves masters at telling moving stories through movement, and this one touched particularly close to home, dealing with soldiers deployed overseas.
