The First Same-Sex “So You Think You Can Dance” Routine Was Worth The Wait

"So You Think You Can Dance" has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it's not perfect. Up until last night's episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships,…

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching “So You Think You Can Dance”

Of all people in the world, my jock-y, mainstream, but also book-nerd boyfriend was the person who got me into watching "So You Think You Can Dance". When I told him I hadn’t seen it, he scoff-laughed and said, “You’re gonna watch it,” then proceeded to wax poetic about the show and how he wishe…

“SYTYCD”: Our Favorite Performances From Last Night’s “So You Think You Can Dance”

Did you catch "So You Think You Can Dance" last night? Another guy and girl dancer were eliminated (don't worry, I won't spoil the episode by telling you who, but SAD FACE), but not before the Top 16 performed. The talent this year is just so beyond, I don't feel like any of them ever…

“SYTYCD”: Our Favorite Performances From Last Night’s “So You Think You Can Dance”

Well, Amelia and Will, as Audrey and Matthew, have quickly emerged as my favorite couples on "So You Think You Can Dance," but after last night's episode, I wonder if they have choreographer Sonya Tayeh to thank, at least in part.

5 Reasons We Love Cat Deeley

The hosts of reality competition shows are kind of like commercial breaks—necessary evils that you must endure in order to get your tele-fix. I tend to tune them out, their voices becoming like the "wah-wahs" of Charlie Brown's teacher in "Peanuts." Reality TV hosts are usually like an extension of the set—only there for decoratio…

“So You Think You Can Dance” Was Good For My Marriage

When I started watching "So You Think You Can Dance," my husband gave the entire living room a wide berth. He'd hear Mary Murphy's banshee-like glee at putting a dancer on the "hot tamale train," and off to headphone land he'd go. But, summer had just started, my graduate school employment had just ended,…

Katie Holmes Prances And Shimmies On “So You Think You Can Dance”

Last night on "So You Think You Can Dance," Katie Holmes -- yes, Mrs. Tom Cruise -- performed a dance routine as an homage to Judy Garland and also to promote The Dizzy Feet Foundation, which provides art scholarships to children and teens.

“So You Think You Can Dance” Continues To Shake It

One of my favorite summer shows is "So You Think You Can Dance." Similar in structure to "American Idol" (only it's a competition for, duh, dancers not singers), the talent is consistently a-mazing. This season's crop of dancers are no different. On last night's episode, season 2 runner-up, Travis Wall, choreographed this glorious little love…

On last night's So You Think You Can Dance, contemporary choreographer Mia Michael's composed a dance for contestants Twitch and Katie that went along with one of our favorite songs of the summer -- Duffy's "Mercy".
