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.

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 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.

Two Dancers Sent to the Hospital on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Hell Week (VIDEO)

Ryan Ramirez, 'So You Think You Can Dance'It was 'Hell Week' on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX), which is one of the most brutal boot camps of any reality show. The dancers work from sun-up to well past sun-down most days, and all that training with so little rest takes its toll.

This season saw two early notable contestants sent to the hospital. Sasha and Natalia Mallory auditioned side-by-side, and even took to the stage together for their solo performance in Vegas.

So it was no surprise that Sasha was ready to follow Natalia to the hospital when the latter's blood sugar dropped and the medics recommended she get checked out.

Sasha & Natalia, 'So You Think You Can Dance'A lot of times when 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) features contestants with huge personalities, their talent just doesn't measure up. So we were worried when introduced to sisters Natalia and Sasha.

The two were best friends, and their love for one another was evident through their bantering, shoving and giggling. They were infectious, fun and likable. But does that mean they can dance?

Trying out together, their style was a jazz-African infusion that surprised us. They were in synch, light on their feet and were joyful but completely serious in the presentation of the dance. Great personalities and good dancing?

Did 'So You Think You Can Dance' Uncover the 'Real' Ringo Starr? (VIDEO)

the In a story that just got more and more bizarre the deeper Cat Deeley and the folks behind 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) dug into it, a competing hopeful claimed to be the daughter of the "real" Ringo Starr.

Well, with a claim like that, we can't blame the show for sending a camera crew to her home town to meet the legend himself. Once there, we were introduced to an older gentleman with virtually no trace of a British accent who claims to be the original Ringo Starr.

He said he played on four albums and, according to his daughter, went into hiding "after John Lennon was shot three times in the back."
