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

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 4th 2011 9:30AM
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.

Sasha and Alexander Move Judges to Tears on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (VIDEO)

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.

May Sweeps Bring Summer TV Blues

by Stephanie Earp, posted May 5th 2010 11:16AM
Welcome to the month of May, which songs and poems tells us is primarily responsible for bringing forth darling buds and spring flowers.

Not a single epigram or aphorism mentions May Sweeps, when May pulls the curtain on the TV season that was, bringing many good things -- and plenty of crap things -- to an end.

Over the next 30 days or so, over 60 shows will say goodbye and leave the airwaves for an extended summer vacation, while others are saying a permanent goodbye. Once they go, TV will leave us with nothing but a smattering of viewing options. Faced with such a dearth -- especially once the hockey post-season is over -- my upstairs neighbors usually cancel their satellite subscription for the summer. Ay yai yai! This is crazy talk! I happen to share that satellite subscription with them and I now have to convince them that it's worth continuing to split the bill for the delight of a few summer series.

But look at what I have to work with:

Fox Shuffles Summer Lineup

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 15th 2010 3:45PM
Just when you thought you finally had your DVR programmed correctly, Fox has decided to shuffle its lineup for the summer.

According to Deadline, Fox is moving 'So You Think You Can Dance' from its planned Tuesday-Wednesday slots to a Wednesday-Thursday schedule instead. As a result, 'Hell's Kitchen' will move from Thursdays to Tuesdays.

Caught in the middle of all of this? 'Glee,' which remains in place on Tuesdays with new episodes but sees its weekly repeats moved to Thursday in order to remain the lead-in to the 'So You Think You Can Dance' results show.

At 'So You Think You Dance' Auditions, Cat Deeley Reveals Surprise Projects

by Anna Dimond, posted Apr 7th 2010 2:30PM
It may only be April, but 'So You Think You Can Dance' is already warming up for its seventh season. The dance competition show, which aired its first-ever fall season in 2009, doesn't premiere until May 27 (8PM ET on Fox). But nationwide auditions just wrapped up after producers and judges spent weeks culling talent from New York to Los Angeles, and multiple cities in between.

'SYTYCD' made its final stop in L.A. last weekend, attracting a crowd of hopefuls that stretched almost completely around a city block before the doors even opened. Amidst throngs of dancers and a gaggle of cameramen, co-executive producer Jeff Thacker was fired up for the day, despite having completed three US editions of the show in 18 months.

More Radical Changes in Store for 'So You Think You Can Dance'

by Sharon Knolle, posted Mar 29th 2010 10:00PM
If you thought changing partners every week on 'So You Think You Can Dance' counts as a big shake-up, brace yourself for the latest rule changes: No Top 20 and the return of several "All Stars" from past seasons.

Over the weekend, producer
Nigel Lythgoe tweeted some radical new rules for season 7, which premieres May 27: "No top 20! No choosing genres! Only one goes home each week CHANGE - Less than 4 compete in the Finale!" Previous seasons featured six finalists competing for the title of "America's Favorite Dancer."

Today, he added more shake-ups via his Twitter account:
"We are forming a 'dance-pool' of your favorite dancers from previous Seasons to act as partners for this year's top 10." Lythgoe went on to explain, "the dancers will change partners each week picked from an 'All-Star Pool.' Each 'All-star' will be a specialist in specific genres of dance." Lythgoe announced he'll be hand picking the dancers for the All-Star Pool, who'll be chosen from all six seasons.

AOL TV Breaks 'So You Think You Can Dance' Tweets to Adam Shankman

Adam Shankman is busy judging auditions for season 7 of 'So You Think You Can Dance,' but that doesn't mean he's up on the latest changes to the show. At the Hollywood premiere of 'The Last Song' last night, he was surprised to hear the news producer Nigel Lythgoe tweeted about yesterday.

"He's not filling me in!" he said. After learning two of the major new changes -- partners change every week and only one person will be eliminated each week -- he laughed, "Oh great, I love this, that I'm finding out from you!"

Shankman gave his thoughts on the new rules and his own ideas for the show, which, unfortunately, "keep getting shut down," the best city so far in the audition process and why this season will be even more competitive.
