So You Think You Can Dance, Eh?

SO, we might have to wait until next summer for the deliciousness that is SYTYCD, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get our fill of insane choreography, brilliant dancers and awe-inspiring performances from its international brothers and sisters.

Over the past couple of seasons, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ here in the states has “borrowed” choreographer Stacey Tookey many times from our sibling up north, SYTYCD: Canada.

Apparently, this exchange program is dual-sided, and it was time for 2-time Emmy Award-winning choreo–and the Simon Cowell of So You Think You Can–Mia Michaels to grab her winter coat and moose and head to Canadia.

Check out her absolutely ba-nanas interpretation of the RENT classic “Will I.”

This vid is almost perfection, save Canada’s version of a poor-man’s Cat Deeley telling Mia that she is proud of her. Um, step back, blondie, Mia don’t need yo praise.

Dance Superstar.

So, this is a little bit of a delayed reaction, but last Thursday night Ellen Degeneres got buck!!!

Here’s the comedienne/talk show host/former Idol judge performing at the SYTYCD finale alongside former contestant/all star/star of Step Up 3D, Twitch.

Yes, this Nappytabs-choreographed routine might look familiar to a loyal COL reader…yup, I’ve blogged about it before…sorta! This is actually Ellen’s tribute to fallen contestant Alex, who had to bow out of the competition due to a torn Achilles tendon 😦

Watch Ellen break it down below!

Two Jews Who Love the Dance.

So, I just posted this exact spread to my facebook profile, and decided it was worthy of space on COL.

In other news, congratulations to Kent, Adechike, Robert and Lauren for making the final 4 on this cycle of So You Think You Can Dance.  Billy, we’ll miss you and your androgyny…Adam Shanks will probably miss more 🙂  EnjoY.

so, recently (multiple) people have told me that i remind them of sytycd judge adam shankman. i take this as a compliment, since he prides himself on facial choreography and expression. for instance, i too have made the exact faces seen at :14, :30 & :48. but, don’t fool yourselves homeboys and homegirls, i’m not going to cry like this on national tv…i save the waterworks for real tearjerking material like folgers commercials, jin/sun death sequences & 7 seasons worth of bartlet speeches.”

Baller-ina

OK, this is one of the BEST performances E-V-E-R on So You Think You Can Dance.

Last week, resident ballet dancer Alex teamed up with all-star Twitch in a ba-nanas number choreo’d by Nappytabs!

I’m not going to lie…Alex was not on my radar before this dance, but oh how the tides have turned.

Not only does he get a standing O from the judges, but also some tears from Adam Shankman.

Sha-dance-bam.

Some mid-day inspiration…

SO, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I’d offer some themed inspiration today!

This video from last season is one of the most heart-wrenching dances ever performed on So You Think You Can Dance.

Melissa and Ade are both such bea-utiful dancers and the emotions that they inject into Tyce Diorio’s choreography are incredible!

Happy Thursday!
