So You Think You Can Dance Finale Results Recap 8/11/11


Melanie Moore wins SYTYCD Season 8!!!

Sasha Mallory takes 2nd place!

Marko Gemar takes 3rd!

Tadd Gaddaung takes 4th place!

Great night of entertainment tonight!  I always enjoy seeing the Judge’s favorite performances of the season and the lead up to the winner.

Here’s the recap!

The show opened with the group routine to Don’t you Wanna Get Hyped by District 78.    This is some serious choreography.  I’m thinking that this has to be some Sonya Tayek’s  work.  My niece offers up one word to sum this dance up:  Awesome!  She is right!  And so am I.  This is Sonya’s work!  Video

Cat Deeley is looking kind of fantastic tonight and when she introduces our Judges, Neil Patrick Harris calls her a ‘Sexy Little Minx’ and then she shares that she had a crush on Young Dougie when she was a Teen.  We learn something new everyday, don’t we?

So You Think You Can Dance Recap 7/20/11

The Top 10 will separate from their partners tonight and they will perform with an All-Star for the first time.

Neil Patrick Harris joins the Judges tonight.  This should be interesting!  He is quite the critic!  But he is really likeable and honest, so I know that we will get the truth!  Plus it is nice that he has the Broadway background.  He is a huge fan of the show and he is proud of what Nigel has done with the show.

Nigel gives us the spill on the SYTYCD Tour tickets that will be on sale on July 29th.

So You Think You Can Dance Recap 7/13/11!


The Top 6 will perform two numbers tonight.  The pressure is on!  This is the last week that the contestants will be judged with their partners as a couple. 

Jesse Tyler Fergueson and Sonya Tayek join Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe on the Judges table.  It turns out that Jesse has an extensive Broadway background.  Who knew?  I just knew he is pretty funny on Ordinary Family

Sasha and Alexander:  They danced the Paso Doble with choreograhy by Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin.  The story is the battle between masculinity and femininity.   What a brilliant Paso Doble!  It was powerful and was everything that I want to see in the Paso.  Both Sasha and Alexander  were fierce, but Sasha may have a bit more intensity.  This was some pretty hot stuff.  Lol.  Sasha did the traditional male knee (crawl thing) sweep with Alexander.   Nigel:  He thought the choreoraphy recognized Sasha’s strengths and played to them.   He also thought that Alexander kept up with her, which is difficult to do,  because Sasha is such a strong great character.  Mary:  She called for an Ole from the crowd, because they deserve it.  She felt that Sasha dominated and she has never seen a woman do a leg crawl like she did.  Alexander had a breakthrough tonight.  Sasha was a little bit stronger, but he did a good job.  Jesse:  It was highly dramatical and he loved it.  Sasha is such a pillar of strength and Alexander completely came up to her level.  Sonya:  Sasha you rock my socks.  You indulge in it (the performance).   She also feels that  Alexander has it in him, but he has to trust himself more.   The choreographers are  dedicating this dance to their friend who is fighting cancer.  Video    888.836.7601

I really liked this one.  The group performed to ‘The Incredits’ from my favorite Pixar film ‘The Incredibles.  It was like West Side Story meets The Incredibles.  I kinda loved it.  Michael Rooney Choreography.  Video

Group Performance

The show starts with the Group  dance.   Hmm….tonight’s group number was interesting, it kind of reminded me of  ‘The Thomas Crown Affair with all of the hats and brief cases.  I’m not sure how I feel about this one.  This choreography was courtesy of Dave Scott .  Video

So You Think You Can Dance Results Recap 6/16/11


I agree with Cat that it will be a hard to call who is going home tonight for the first results show of the season!  Everyone brought their A game last night.

So You Think You Can Dance 6/15/11

Tonight, our top 20 will take the floor tonight for  the first time for America’s votes.  Two dancers will be voted off in tomorrow night’s show.   I feel like the it is really official that the competition has started when all of the Dancers are introduced to us one by one and then they sashay up to the stage and the girls dare the boys to try to compete with them..  I love that! 

Our Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest Judge Megan Mullally are introduced.  I really loved Megan on ‘Will and Grace’ and all, but I was initially wondering why she was on the panel? Turns out that she has a background in dancing. Who knew?

Cat announces that  Mitchell will not be dancing tonight, because he injured himself during rehearsal, he is the most at risk right now.  That must really be horrible for him and he is shown tearing up from his seat in the audience.

Each Contestant will be given 8 seconds to tell a little about themselves.  8 whole seconds?  SYTYCD is kind of clowning for this.
