This morning I had a chance to chat with Nathan Trasoras, the latest contestant to be eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance. Nathan turned out to be a surprisingly controversial and contentious figure on season 6 of So You Think You Can Dance, something we never saw coming during his universally praised auditions. Nathan talked about the criticism he faced this season, what he learned from So You Think You Can Dance, and what's next for him. To Read More Click Here .
This morning I had the pleasure of chatting with Noelle Marsh, the latest dancer to be eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance. The bubbly, preternaturally positive Noelle was everything in her interview that we saw and enjoyed about her on the show. She was gracious, grateful, and giddy to share her love of dance. Noelle chatted about her BFF Mollee, dancing with Russell and Ryan, and her excitement for the season 6 So You Think You Can Dance tour. To Read More Click Here .
This morning So You Think You Can Dance executive Nigel Lythgoe took a moment to sit and chat with reporters about season 6 and the upcoming Carrie Underwood All-Star Holiday Special. We'll share his thoughts on Carrie Underwood later, but wanted to share what the head judge had to say about So You Think You Can Dance and tonight's Top 10 performance show. Nigel says we all have a real treat coming our way tonight in the form of a Jakob Karr performance choreographed by Sonya Tayeh, as well as confirmation that Jakob's new partner is Ellenore Scott. Nigel also chatted amiably about the Di Lello's (in spite of forgetting Ashleigh's name), missing Billy Bell, and the impressive growth of some of season 6's dancers. To Read More Click Here .
Well, hello, top ten. At this point, I'll say a few things that I've said last week, and you probably already know them more than me. These are the kids who'll make the So You Think You Can Dance tour. These kids will have different partners every week, and their fates will lie solely in the hands of the American people, so all the judges can do is give their take and get disregarded for it. And, judging from the way this season has gone, it's the time when many of these dancers get kicked out of their comfort zones (finally, perhaps) and we'll see who can really make it or who just got a free pass. But that's not exactly the only thing that makes tonight's performances different. There is, as you may very well know, a matter of scheduling. Since Fox will air another one of President Obama's prime time press conferences, tonight's performance show will air from 8:30-11pm if you're in the East Coast. Those in the West Coast can watch it in the usual time, from 8-10pm. I know, it's a bit confusing. What do we do with the extra thirty minutes? Or, will there be an extra thirty minutes? And why should it matter? We have a nice of dancing ahead! To Read More Click here .
The Top 12 of "So You Think You Can Dance" season 6 have been wilted down to mere 10. Married ballroom dancer couple Ashleigh Di Lello and Ryan Di Lello are through to the next round but Karen Hauer and Victor Smalley have to stop their journey on the show. During the deliberation, Karen and Victor were joined in the bottom three by Mollee and Nathan; and Ellenore and Ryan. All six of them had to dance for their lives if they wanted to stay in the competition. Karen was criticized for looking like she has surrendered and thus was the first to be eliminated. On the other hand, Victor delivered an energetic piece but it was not enough to convince the judges to keep him. The Top 10 apart from the Di Lellos are thus Russell Ferguson, Mollee Gray, Jakob Karr, Noelle Marsh, Kathryn McCormick, Jonathan "Legacy" Perez, Ellenore Scott and Nathan Trasoras. Now that only 10 dancers remain, partners are randomly assigned each week and judges will no longer have the voice in who should go home. Viewers will have the right to vote for their favorites.

Let me begin with a thought: patience pays, especially when waiting for So You Think You Can Dance details. That said, we're already dealing with the Top 12, which means we're just one week closer to seeing our line-up for the season 6 tour--and, most importantly, one week closer to the more challenging part of the competition. Tonight's the night we say goodbye to these pairs, for next week the shuffle begins. But it's set to be a memorable night, all because the genres here are not exactly what you'd expect on the show. This time around, the spoilers are courtesy of the folks at IDF, although the folks at SYTYCDism helped along too. As always, listings are in alphabetical order, and the rest are my thoughts, and you are, of course, welcome to toss in yours. Also, each pair does two dances this week. So, with all that over with, shall we? To Read More Click Here .
It's time to shed two more dancers, and if you guys are to believed, it is clear who is going home tonight. (I'm not sure any contestant in the history of these Who's Going Home has ever been so resoundingly called out.) That being said, the question still remains: Will popularity or performance prevail? We're not sure, but you've given us some strong hints based on how you voted in last night's polls and who you've picked for elimination for Fantasy TV. To Read More Click Here .
Sadly, I think we can all agree that most of this season's choreography and the performances have been a bit lackluster. But fear not fading So You Think You Can Dance fans, season 2 star and the great contemporary choreography hope, Travis Wall promises we are in for a real treat when it comes to his couple's performance tonight. By the looks of his Tweets Travis couldn't be more pleased with his couple (rumored to be Ellenore Scott and Ryan Di Lello) who he describes as "breathtaking" and "perfect." To Read More Click Here .
We're still waiting for that spark from this batch of So You Think You Can Dance finalists. I mean, there are standouts and there are surprises, but we've yet to be wowed--and especially last week, when some dancers exhibited their weaknesses (Mollywood, yes) and the influence of the fans became pretty evident (Mollywood again, yes). Is this week the best time to hope for something wonderful? Again, through the amazing folks at SYTYCDism, here's what we could see on tonight's performance show. One wrong pick or one bad turn of the foot might mean two dancers lose a shot at the Top 10. Yes, we're that close, but first, seven pairs of dancers. To Read More Click Here .
