My favorite ‘Summer Show’ is having a surprise ‘Fall Season’!
And I for one could not be happier about this.
So You Think You Can Dance airs TONIGHT on Fox @ 8/7C!!
Feel free to judge me, but I am forever amazed with what the human body is capable of doing with some of the dance moves. There is not one element missing from this fabulous show. From the contestants, to the music, the movement, the costumes, [oh the costumes!], the makeup, the hair, the choreographers, the judges, and the passion. All of it, literally moves me to chills and sometimes even tears.
[Is that totally lame? Wait. Don’t answer that!]
Maybe I am biased so in love with this show because I used to dream of being a dancer when I was a little girl. I used to envision myself as a back up dancer on Solid Gold. And I would have given a limb to be a contestant on Dance Fever. I am sure that my hard core appreciation is deep rooted since half of my life was spent dancing.
About The Show:
So You Think You Can Dance, the original dance competition series. The competition will inspire and amaze viewers while dancers skilled in styles ranging from hip-hop to ballroom compete to be named America’s Favorite Dancer.
Lets start with some information on the judges and hosts shall we?
Cat Deeley is the main host, and she is freaking adorable. I just love her Birmingham, England accent and the way she dresses. She is beautiful to look at and a sheer pleasure as the host. She is also one of the foremost television presenters in the UK and has recently become one of the hottest new faces on American TV.
Nigel Lythgoe, is one of the judges that sits on the panel every episode. And I also believe he may be one of the producers? Nigel is always honest and accurate when assessing or judging a performance and NOT in a cruel Simon Cowell kind of way. [But I do love me a dose of brutal reailty dished out by Simon.] Nigel is kind, generous, and seemingly fair when subject to making decisions about who should be cut from the show.
Mary Murphy, is also one of the judges that sits on the panel every episode. And she IRRITATES me to no end. I cannot stand when she screams. I cannot stand when she looses control. Her laugh cuts into me like nails on a chalk board. But, she does have extensive knowledge and provides excellent training as a world-class technical dance instructor.
Mia Michaels often sits in as a guest judge, and choreographs the most brilliant routines I have ever witnessed. She is MY FAVORITE dancer/judge/choreographer/artist – EVER. Mia turns dancing into inspired and unique works of passion and beauty. Mia Michaels is a choreographic GENIUS. And Mia Michaels was the 2007 Emmy Winner – So You Think You Can Dance: “Calling You”!
I don’t know how many of you saw Mia Michael’s work in season five [last season] but the routine she choreographed: ‘ADDICTION’, was not only heart-stopping, chilling, poignant, and universal…it was The Most Beautiful I have ever seen.
Seriously, watch this:
There are many other talented guest judges, and choreographers, that frequently appear on the series, I just don’t know all of their names. My bad!
I am totally SUPER psyched about this. And, I am very much looking forward to watching AMAZING new talent this fall!
