SYTYCD Alum (All-Stars?) Chelsie and Dmitry’s Photo Shoot

Over on SYTYCD Season 4 contestant and Dancing with the Stars professional Chelsie Hightower’s website, there’s a gorgeous photo shoot by Manuel Palacios with Chelsie and SYTYCD Season 2 (and DWtS alum) dancer Dmitry Chaplin.

Check out my favorite photo from the 70+ options, below. And make sure you check out all the photos, including the spectacular shots of the two dancers and a handy tree branch at the end.

Dmitry’s in my Top 10 All-Stars, but I didn’t include Chelsie, cause I assumed her commitment to Dancing with the Stars would keep her out of the running. I’d love to see her back, as she’s always been one of my favorites.

SYTYCD U.S. – Wade & Amanda Robson Wrote, Choreographed & Directed Backstreet Boy AJ McLean Music Video

I know this is like over a month old. I only noticed this a couple of days ago when I was looking up Wade Robson on You Tube. I have been a fan of Wade’s before SYTYCD I love his creativity in dance it’s amazing. The song is very catchy and I love the dance breakdown in the video you can tell easily that it’s Wade & Amanda’s choreography because it is easy to spot. The song is called ‘Teenage Wildlife’.

SYTYCD All-Stars Musings

From our friends at SYTYCDism:

– Apparently, they are not picking past winners for the all-star cast.
Travis Wall (S2) will return as a choreographer, not an all-star.
Blake McGrath (S1) tweeted that he was not part of the all-star cast.

Nigelly Confirmed:
1. Stephen β€œTwitch” Boss (S3) – Hip Hop (Popping, Locking, Krump)

SYTYCDism’s Pool To-Be-Nigelly-Confirmed*:
Lauren Gottlieb (S3) – Lyrical Hip Hop? Jazz?
Courtney Galiano (S4) – Jazz?
Allison Holker (S2) – Contemporary

As the SYTYCDism post claims, they usually ARE spot on with spoilers, so it’ll be interesting to see how right they are. I might’ve been right myself when I self-imposed the “no winners” rule on my own All-Star selection. I didn’t pick Courtney Galiano, but I’d love to see her back.

It’s amusing that SYTYCDism labeled their post SYTYCDWTS. πŸ™‚ Lol. It does have a bit of a Dancing with the Stars flavor this season, doesn’t it? But does that make the “stars” the All-Stars, or are they the “professionals”? It reminds me of creative Survivor matchups like Fan Favorites and Heroes vs. Villians, too.

Just as Nigel and co. probably hope, fans are campaigning for their favorites on Twitter:


If you want @mollsgrayy for a season 7 allstar you should retweet this πŸ™‚ about 18 hours ago via txt Retweeted by MollsGrayy and 33 other


RT if you want @Ellenore back on #SYTYCD Season 7! (: about 19 hours ago via web Retweeted by Ellenore and 40 others

John, where’s your All-Star list? I imagine it will feature a lot of blondes….Kherington, Kayla, Channing…

SYTYCD Season 7’s (Probably) Billy Bell Videos

I saw this intriguing Tweet from Ellenore and had to find video of the solo she talked about:

Ellenore Scott Ellenore

@Billy_Bell I saw your Madhatter solo finally…and died. YOU ARE AMAZING. The end. about 18 hours ago via web

And here’s the video!

What I wouldn’t give to see Wade Robson get his hands on Billy Bell in Season 7, after seeing this video. πŸ™‚

And here’s another wonderful solo from Billy Bell with a great song – “Just Dance” by Gary Go Gary Go - Gary Go (Bonus Track Version) - Just Dance (feat. Mr Dialysis) [Bonus Track]

I think Billy Bell deserves an automatic spot in Season 7’s Top 10, considering he’s almost an All-Star already, but I can appreciate the SYTYCD folks following rules and such. πŸ™‚ I feel for those Season 7 contestants – they better be ready to bring it. Billy Bell already has just as much of a following as Jakob Karr did last season, if not more.

As for a Season 7 Ellenore-Billy match up?

Ellenore Tweeted this:


TheCliffordShow RTWhat if @Billy_Bell and @Ellenore get paired together in season 7?! Epic or Epic? -Me and Billy would love that!!! heehee about 18 hours ago via web

And Billy re-Tweeted it as well. As you can see from my All-Star choices, I’m all for this pairing. πŸ™‚
