Two of the Top 4 SYTYCD Finalists Hospitalized

Well, we all knew that the top 4 finalists were giving it there all, but it’s sad when they have to be hospitalized. Here’s the report:

Two dancers in the Top 4 of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance collapsed at rehearsals Saturday and had to be rushed by ambulance to nearby Cedars Sinai Hospital–just days before the reality series season finale.

“Two went in [Saturday] and so there was no more rehearsals, and today [Sunday] all the rehearsals were called off,” ballroom expert and SYTYCD judge Mary Murphy confirmed to PEOPLE at Fox’s 2008 Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Sunday. “The kids are completely dehydrated – two of them. I’m sure they’re doing a lot of blood work to see if there’s anything else.”

A source close to the show said that the two dancers are out of the hospital, doing better and will return to rehearsals Monday.

Leading up to the finale, the dancers have been putting in 10 to 12 hour rehearsals a day, because “they want it so bad,” says Murphy, adding “so, they keep pushing themselves and pushing themselves and not letting anybody know that, ‘Hey, I’m running on empty,’ and then it catches up on them and then they collapse.”

Glad to hear that they are alright and out of the hospital. Stephen ‘Twitch’ Boss, Katee Shean, Courtney Galiano and Joshua Allen are the four remaining dancers in the competition. My guess is that it was Katee and Courtney. After all they are 2 rather petite girls that could easily become dehydrated.

I also read that the Jonas Brothers will be performing for the finale. Of course, we can also look forward to a sweet group routine with some of our favorites and isn’t there suppose to be a dance off? My guess is that the dance off will be a little disappointing.

Nigel Leaving American Idol to Focus on So You Think You Can Dance

I just read a report that Nigel is leaving American Idol to focus on SYTYCD and a new venture with Simon Fuller. Here’s a quote from Nigel:

Due to the huge success of ‘So You Think You Can Dance,’ my summer will be taken up by travels to South Africa, Australia and Canada to work on local versions of the show. I will step back from my day-to-day producing work on ‘American Idol’ and will be devoting my time to a new venture with Simon Fuller. I have very much enjoyed my personal and professional relationship with Simon. He is without doubt, a man of vision, and I look forward to partnering with him on new and exciting challenges in all forms of entertainment.

I wonder what Nigel’s new venture with Simon Fuller is. The trips around the world to see various dancing would be an amazing experience.

So You Think You Can Dance Finale Predictions

Back to our regularly scheduled So You Think You Can Dance programming. It’s time for me to make my predictions for the finale of So You Think You Can Dance 2008. I think that you should really trust my SYTYCD predictions, because I was correct in my top 10 predictions and my top 4.

Of course, they always say to quit when you’re ahead, but I’m living in Las Vegas and so I’ll take the gamble. I will have full disclosure and tell you that my SYTYCD Finale poll did help in my predictions a little.

Here’s my predictions as might be said by Cat Deeley.

Cat Deeley, “The first person leaving us this evening and not continuing on in the competition is…
“The next person leaving the competition tonight. Oh man, I hate this, ” Cat Deeley
Courtney Gailano

Cat Deeley, “Out of the thousands who have auditioned and millions of votes counted. We’re down to our final 2. One of you will be America’s Favorite Dancer. Joshua Allen, it’s not you.”
Katee Shean you’re the next champion of So You Think You Can Dance. Katee, you are America’s Favorite dancer.

I think we all know it’s a 2 horse race between Katee and Joshua. I would love for Joshua to win, but I just think that Katee has too much sweetness that will carry her to the win. Either way it will be a well deserved win.

No matter who wins, one thing is for sure: The finale will include some absolutely amazing dancing. I’m really looking forward to it.
