Thanks to Vogue over on Pure DWTS, I came across this really great Sugar and Bruno video that contains a whole slew of SYTYCD dancers. I guess I should have known that dancers make for great models. Chelsie, Kathryn and Mollee are a few of my favorites in the video. Plus, how amazing does Stacey look? She’s defying time.
Time for a great discussion of SYTYCD season 9 with the famous Debbie Allen. Debbie Allen gives you some really big hints on some dancers that make it to Las Vegas, so listen for those comments. I also dig in a little bit with Debbie Allen about how dance has evolved and even ask her what she thinks about a Dancing with the Stars – Contemporary edition. Enjoy!
Time for a great discussion of SYTYCD season 9 and ballroom dancing on SYTYCD with Mary Murphy. I think this interview does a good job of showing what Mary Murphy is really like. She’s much more calm and not playing it up for the big cameras. I liked talking with her about ballroom dancing on SYTYCD. Plus, Mary Murphy talks about the change from SYTYCD Top 20 to only 18 dancers making the finale. I also ask her what she thinks about having ballroom dancers “dance for their life” with a partner.
The next in my set of interviews with the SYTYCD season 9 Las Vegas week judges is with Lil C. It was an interesting interview. He basically dances as he talks, so you’ll see a lot of camera movement. He reveals the name of one act that makes it to Las Vegas. Plus, he adds a lot of info on how he looks at dancing. Enjoy!
The next in my set of interviews with the SYTYCD season 9 Las Vegas week judges is with Adam Shankman. In it, Adam Shankman discusses SYTYCD season 9 and what differentiates the dancers. He also talks about his other dance projects including: Rock of Ages, Step Up Revolution (4), Glee, and This Is Where I Leave You (non-dance), and an action adventure version of the Nutcracker.
The next in my set of interviews with the SYTYCD season 9 Las Vegas week judges and host is with Nigel Lythgoe. In this video, Nigel primes the marketing meter with what he calls a “Major Change” to SYTYCD and one that when we see the change we’ll wonder, “Why didn’t you do that years ago?” Of course, he’s not letting the cat out of the bag yet, although I did try to press him for more information. No, the major change he’s talking about isn’t SYTYCD Cancelling the Results show. What do you think the major change is?
Also, Nigel was right about the Ballroom girls of SYTYCD Season 9 killing it. They were by far my favorite! Now for the video interview of Nigel Lythgoe:
In case you missed it, be sure to check out my interview with Cat Deeley about SYTYCD 2012 as well.
