Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting with Kathryn McCormick the top placing female dancer from season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance. Over the course of season 6 Kathryn went from virtual unknown to rising star on the power of her technique and performances. By the time the finale rolled around, Kathryn had claimed Nigel and much of America's heart. The head judge showered her with compliments, telling her she was "my favorite girl for weeks." Just before hopping on a plane to head home for the holidays, Kathryn chatted with me about her favorite routines of the season, which routine she would have chosen to be danced again for the finale, and the moments that made her time on So You Think You Can Dance "the most incredible journey."

Anyone who has starred in so much as a third grade Christmas pageant knows the incredible buzz of performing in front of a crowd. They may also know the moment of confusion when their microphone doesn't work, or their co-star pulls a muscle moments before entering stage left. Standing under the hot lights, with millions of people watching her on the season finale of So You Think You Can Dance, Cat Deeley faced both situations at the same time. She handled the situation with as much poise and dignity as anyone could have when confronted by a crying and limping krumper. When I caught up with Cat after the show I was thrilled to find that her bubbly TV persona is no act. She is both bashful British girl in a spangly party dress and a total pro. She recounted the story of her on stage dilemma, told us why she believes the right person won, and put an end to rumors that she may leave the show after this season. To Read More Click Here
Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of chatting with an exhausted Ashleigh DiLello, finalist from season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance.'' Ashleigh and fellow finalist husband Ryan were just about to head home to Utah for the holidays but she graciously snuck in a few moments to tell me about her whirlwind season of growth. We chatted about her favorite routines with Jakob, her most cherished moments of the season, the family she and Ryan created with fellow finalists, and if she and Ryan would be interested in moving on to Dancing With the Stars if the offer arose.

Bruised but not beaten, Russell Ferguson took the crown on this season's "So You Think You Can Dance". He is the 20-year-old Krumper who has been the judges and audience's favorite throughout the season although he has little formal education in dancing and has little experience in the type of dances required during the competition. Interestingly, Russell was injured during the finale on Wednesday, December 16 within the first 45 minutes. He broke his ankle after a routine and was crying. Ryan Di Lello had to help him to get on the stage to hear the result where Ryan was announced as the dancer who finished sixth. More results were read out, Ryan's wife Ashleigh finished fifth, Ellenore finished fourth, Kathryn finished third and Jakob became the runner-up. In between the announcements, there were performances by Leona Lewis who sang the "Avatar" theme, Adam Lambert who performed "Whataya Want From Me" and Jennifer Lopez who belted out "Loubutins".

On Wednesday, December 16, Adam Lambert returned to FOX, the TV network which brought him to fame through "American Idol". This time around, he took the stage as one of the performers for the live result show of the network's "So You Think You Can Dance" finale. Sporting a gray suit, Adam delivered "Whataya Want From Me", a single taken from his debut album "For Your Entertainment".

Then, Jennifer Lopez sang "Louboutins" before the show announced Russell Ferguson as the winner of this season's reality dancing competition. Source & Video

In a season of firsts for So You Think You Can Dance (first fall season, first krumping finalist, first married couple finalists), it's hardly surprising - and perhaps fitting - the Fox hit heads into Tuesday's Season 6 finale with its first-ever final six contestants, two more than the usual four. "I think it's really exciting," Jakob Karr tells us. "First of all, there are more dances in the finale, so there's more to watch. It's going to be a really good show. I'm ready." And so are his competitors. See what all six finalists have to say about their soon-to-be last dances, their strengths and weaknesses, the whole season and more. To Read More Click Here .
The contestants of "So You Think You Can Dance" season 6 have been narrowed down to 6 on Wednesday, December 9. Two were sent home, while Ashleigh Di Lello was absent from performing after popping her shoulder out of her socket. Jonathan "Legacy" Perez and Ryan DiLello were in the bottom two in men's part. And when it came to women's turn, Mollee Gray and Ellenore Scott were revealed as the two to be in the unsafe zone. The safe participants beside Ashley thus were Jakob Karr, Russell Ferguson, and Kathryn McCormick. While the folks in the bottom four were preparing for their solos, the so-called "Asia's No. 1 Pop Group," the Wonder Girls took the stage and performed their hit single "I Want Nobody But You", which reportedly is the English version of "Nobody". And prior to the final results, audience were treated to a performance from "American Idol" 8th season champion Kris Allen who delivered "Live Like We're Dying", the lead single off his debut album "Kris Allen". It was later announced that Mollee and Legacy were sent home, leaving Ellenore and Ryan to join Ashley, Jakob, Russell, and Kathryn McCormick as the big six. They will all compete for the finale show next Tuesday, December 15. Source Here
