So You Think You Can Dance Recap: The Final Performance Show

Welcome to the confusing performance finale of So You Think You Can Dance. Confusing because: Didn't they ask us to vote for these final four after last week's episode? What is going to happen to those votes? Will they be added in together? That makes sense, but they certainly didn't say so. Perhaps they will address next week. I hope so.©2012 FOX Broadcasting Co.

I guess America got it right but I love Tiffany and wish she could have won too.more

So You Think You can Dance: Top 6 Perform, Top 4 Revealed

Welcome back to #SYTYCD, and it's all on you now, people! Meaning no more judges saves. It's all America voting now.Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy are joined by Christina Applegate as guest judge (and yes, she has some real cred as a dancer, having toured as Charity in the Bob Fosse-choreographed Sweet Charity).Last night each dancer danced once with an All-Star, once with a fellow semi-finalist, and once solo. We got to see a lot of them, in other words.So, let's get started:...more

So You Think You Can Dance: The Top 10 Meet The All-Stars

The show opens with a Tyce Diorio routine that's a tribute to Gene Kelly. Missed why. What I didn't miss was that Tyce himself was dancing, and it was clear Cole wasn't doing much. They referred to him as "slightly injured", but you couldn't tell at all when his number came along. I thought it might be an overall evening about Gene Kelly. But no, pity....more

So You Think You Can Dance: 14 Perform, the Top 10 Emerges

It's a very special episode of #SYTYCD. Yes, it's Mia Michaels night…but don't get too excited. These aren't going to be new routines. They're classic Mia routines that have already been done in previous seasons. Hmmm.Part of me thinks it will be awesome to see these again, part of me thinks it won't really serve the current contestants. As it turns out, I am right on both counts.The guest judges joining Nigel and Mary are Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt (aka the Ballet Boys, who I am not enough of a dance aficionado to have heard of).And away we go!...more

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: They All Dance, then Four Go Home

Welcome to week #2 of #SYTYCD, and I think I'm getting how this season will work, with no results show, but America still getting to vote. Each week everyone will dance, even though the votes are already in on who the bottom folks are.After all the dancing, they'll announce the bottom folks. At which point the judges can still decide to have some of them dance for their lives, or they can just make a decision right then and there. Got it? Good....more
I love that BlogHer is blogging about SYTYCD! Haha :)more

"So You Think You Can Dance" Top 20: Have You Picked A Favorite?

I'm so glad that So You Think You Can Dance has a summer season. It’s been a while since I’ve been hooked in like this, but how could I not be with such raw talent and amazing choreographed pieces? It’s especially joyous when I watch DVR recordings with my 2.5 year old daughter, who feels dance in her soul and tries her best to mimic all the dance moves, subsequently providing her two cents to let me know if she likes a performance or not....more

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: The Finale, The Top Four, The Meh

Was it just me, or was last night a big old let-down? Maybe it was that there were just too many damn routines. Maybe it was that the routines were therefore too short. Or that the high number of routines made the dancers tired....more

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: The Top 10

Last night was a fine fine night of dancing on So You Think You Can Dance. it made me glad I wasn't a judge, and it made me think the All-Stars might get nervous that *they'd* be eliminated tonight, instead of the dancetestants! We were treated to one routine with an All-Star and one solo from each dancer, but mostly we were treated to Neil Patrick Harris, yes, @ActuallyNPH himself!!! He readily admitted he wasn't a dance expert (and he's really not) but unlike with the other suspect guest judges, I just didn't care. Yes, I'm biased, I don't care: I loves me some NPH!...more
