The Season Seven winner is crowned. Will it be the willowy, winsome Melanie? The fierce warrior goddess Sasha? Or will it be one of the guys, Tadd or Marko, who sneak up and steal the title?
The best season of So You Think You Can Dance reaches its climax on this night, as the four remaining dancers pull out all the stops to win the votes that will make them the Season Seven champion. It is THAT close, people.
With only six dancers left, the tension mounts as they perform for the penultimate time before a winner is crowned. This has been one amazing season, I must say, and the awesome dances just keep on coming.
Toscano is even getting the chance to perform her new single in another venue. On August 4th, Toscano will appear on Foxís So You Think You Can Dance, opposite guest judge Christina Applegate and choreographer LilíC.
In every season of every competitive show, there's always that one week where someone with the proverbial snowball's chance of surviving miraculously does. That happened this week. On top of that, one of my early-season favorites was sent home.
Last week saw the remaining twelve contestants from Season Eight dance with their partners, who they have been dancing with since the Top 20 started, for the last time. If you missed this week's performance show, then I'm sad for you, for this week featured the most beautiful and spectacular routines of the season. Since this coincided with the entrance of the All-Stars, perhaps that's to be expected.
Summer shows deserve love too, right? Fox posted more nominees for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards and among the added categories are Choice Summer TV Show, and Choice Summer TV Star (Male/Female). ABC Familyís The Nine Lives of Chloe King also managed to score some nominations for Choice Breakout Show, and Breakout Star.
The pressure's on as the twelve remaining contestants pull out all the stops to secure a spot in the vaunted Top Ten. Two routines each makes twelve dances total. And the elimination this weeks may surprise you (but probably not).
The horror of reality TV competitions is that sometimes you can kick ass and still be up for elimination, whereas sometimes you can suck and be safe. I wish it weren't so, but that is the case.
It appears So You Think You Can Dance has another celebrity guest judge lined up to join the table for an upcoming week in the seriesí eighth season. Word is, Lady Gaga has been confirmed to guest judge at some point this season. Itís fitting that Gaga should appear on the show, considering one of her dancers was once a SYTYCD contestant.
After last week's brutal quadruple elimination, the remaining sixteen contestants pull out all the stops to impress the judges, which this week included the lovely (and very very short) Kristen Chenoweth.
Twenty dancers were spared elimination last week. Despite some terrific performances, four have already been shown the door. One expects, with talent competition shows, that every season should surpass the preceding one as far as the sheer volume of talent. SYTYCD is no exception.
The prelims are over. The Top 20 has been chosen, and for the first time, they were all subject to Americaís vote. Ten guys paired up with ten girls, and from what Cat said, these pairings will be permanent until we reach Top 10. If a guy and a girl from different duos ends up going home, then their partners will hook up next week, but otherwise, these will be the pairings for the next month.
So You Think You Can Dance is one of the few reality shows that I can actually watch. There's something interesting about watching these talented kids be mentored, struggle out of their comforts zones, and shine within them. One of the drawbacks for me has always been the judges... namely, Mary Murphy. Thankfully they seem to be lining up a bunch of guest judges that might limit the number of times I have to hear that woman scream.
Instead of doing a dance-by-dance critique, encapsulating each dancerís routines, the music selected, as excerpts from the judgesí comments, I will borrow a little from the format of my fellow contributors, who so eloquently recap Top Chef and Celebrity Apprentice, by giving a brief synopsis of each dancer, ranking them in the order that I think they are likely to win the show.
