Remember So You Think You Can Dance’s Benji Schwimmer?
December 5th, 2018 under Remember?, SYTYCD. [ Comments: 2 ]

Back in 2006, Benji Schwimmer defied the odds and won the second season of So You Think You Can Dance. The scrawny little dancer was a fan favorite because we loved his geekiness.

That was then, now 12 years later he is a buff man showing off his muscular body. Who knew that by doing Swing dancing it would give you a bod like that? Now thanks to DNA Magazine we know that. So who else besides me is going to sign up for classes? Plus, am I the only one who wants him to be their teacher. He teaches Tango too, right?


So You Think You Can Dance just won’t die

It is February 16th, and there was no word if So You Think You Can Dance would be back for another season. So you were thinking it was cancelled. Not so fast because Fox announced it will be back for a 15th season with judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Vanessa Hudgens and host Cat Deeley, who is pregnant with baby #2.

If you want to audition for the show, you can do so here. Unlike years in the past, they are only going to two cities, New York City and Los Angeles, for the audition phase of it.

When it comes to the renewal, I am thinking it is either really cheap to produce or Lythgoe has pictures on executives. Personally, I cannot understand why it is back. Can you?


A So You Think You Can Dance contestant threw up on Paula Abdul!

Tahani Anderson had such a great audition on So You Think You Can Dance that when she was done all three judges had a ticket to the Academy for her. When the 12 year old went to collect the tickets, Nigel Lythgoe hugged her and so did Paula Abdul. Only problem was the Straight Up singer hugged her too tight and Tahani said, “all her happiness came out on her jacket.”
Hopefully Abdul won’t be Cold Hearted and vote against her during the next round which I don’t think she will because she is sweet. Lythgoe I think would.


So You Think You Can Dance makes some changes
May 28th, 2014 under SYTYCD. [ Comments: none ]

So You Think You Can Dance is dancing for its life this season that starts tonight at 8p on Fox, according to some of the Tweets that have been sent out by the Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe. So I guess that is why the show is making some major changes this season. One of the things they are doing is asking for Dance Crews to compete for a chance to perform during the finale. While that really isn’t a reason for me to watch, the other big change is. Lythgoe Tweeted, “No judge saves from the Top10 this year! And back to only one winner! It will be a tough decision but it will be America’s.#Season11 #SYTYCD”. While I liked having a male and female winner, it is kind of nice only having one true champion. But the change I like most is that the Top 10 is back in our hands. I mostly disagree with the judges choices, so I am glad that they no longer have the power that they have had. Had they had the power during the second season, Benji Schwimmer never would’ve made it to the finals, let alone win the whole thing.
Now if SYTYCD really wants to get my viewership again, then have the judges keep their critiques to less than three sentences. I hate how much they talk about themselves or the choreographer or the past contestant, anything but the person competing. I really don’t care what they have to say, I am watching for the dancing not them.
Are you still watching? Did you watch and give it up? What would make you watch the once great show again?


So You Think You change the elimination process?
July 3rd, 2013 under SYTYCD. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday was the first So You Think You Can Dance elimination episode on Fox and Nigel Lythgoe changed things up. Instead of holding off until the end of the show who would not be back next week, the dancing competition decided to do it at the beginning of it. So the bottom 6 knew before they would have dance that they were not liked enough by the fans. To make matters worse 2 dancers were told they were safe, while the other 4 had to dance for their lives. Once they were done, two were told that they would not be moving on in the competition. Well that news is bad, and instead being able to run off to the dressing room to cry, they were forced to dance with their partner that would be back next week. That’s gotta hurt.
Well the fans were outraged and they let their voices be heard. So much so that Nigel Lythgoe Tweeted this this morning, “Ok I hear your disappointment in the format. We will certainly address that for next week. However, who gets cut will always be subjective!” He didn’t say how they would change it, but I have a feeling they will go back to the way things were.
Personally I gave up the show a few season ago because I hated that the show was more about the Judges’ useless comments and not about the dancing. Plus I have always hated that we never had the final say who gets eliminated. Nigel’s ego always handled that for us. Although this is the second time in weeks his ego has been cut down to size; first he was fired from American Idol and now the fans are making him change the format for his lone Fox show that I predict will not be back next year.

Nigel Lythgoe Tweeted this about who are decision makers on SYTYCD, “I’m at a loss to understand some people’s stupidity. I don’t make the decision as to who goes home. The choreo’s and judges decide, I report” Like I said I haven’t watched the show in a few years, but when I did the judges went to the back and then return to say who they voted to send home and he was one of those judges making the decision. So isn’t he technically voting who is going home and not just reporting on it. My point is; if they are going to have the viewers vote, then it should be the viewers who send that person home. We are the ones keeping the show on the air, not them. If we don’t watch, then they don’t have a show. Right?

UPDATE 2: Nigel Lythgoe announced the changes to the show, “We’re taking your advice by revealing America’s vote in the beginning and judging at the end. I hope it will inspire the bottom 4? Thank you” I like that so much better, what about you?
