Odd and Random SYTYCD – 5/21/10

First, you HAVE to check this one out. Can’t stress that enough. Go now. You didn’t go yet? Here’s why you should GO take a look: behind-the-scenes video footage of the photo shoot that brought us the awesome sexy photo from my last post. GREAT quotes from Adam, Cat, Neil and Pasha (standing next to each other!), Courtney, Mark, Twitch, Dominic (with Comfort and Allison) and Lauren. If you STILL need convincing, check out this quote from Lauren:

“When we were contestants, they wouldn’t tell us anything beforehand. And so now we kind of know how it happens. But I know them [the judges/producers]. They’re going to try to throw us for a loop too.”

Anybody got some guess what the surprises might be? Can y’all handle any more surprises and twists this season? I’m not sure I can, though they’ve all been good so far. 🙂 I have a BIG guess on what one new surprise could (or should) be. I’ll post that later, separately.

Here’s one with a shout-out to Season 7 All-Star Courtney Galiano, though you don’t actually see her (unfortunately). I include it because it’s definitely a bit odd. And it’s nice to see people dancing, even if they AREN’T Courtney.

In SYTYCD UK news, last season’s contestant Alastair Postlethwaite will be judging ‘Tarletons Got Talent’.

According to this article, SYTYCD (U.S., that’s us) is Canada’s #1 summer series. When does SYTYCD air? That’s one I haven’t gotten into yet. If it’s anything like SYTYCD UK and AU, I’m in, in, in. I know many of you are already on board.

Speaking of SYTYCD Canada, some former contestants will appear in the tv movie Turn the Beat Around, including Season 1 finalists: Romina D’Ugo, Miles Faber and Natalli Reznik. Check out this quote, from Seventeen magazine:

If you loved movies like Step Up, Save The Last Dance, and Center Stage, then you’ll do backflips for Turn The Beat Around.

I wonder how (if) we can see that movie here in the States?

There’s some great quotes from Nigel in this Zap2it.com blog, but I don’t like the opening lines:

“You never heard of the dancers before, and likely won’t again, but the raw talent on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” blows away competitors on other dance shows.”

Okay, the second half of that sentence is okay. But having All-Stars in SYTYCD Season 7 is clearly meant to help rectify any potential “likely won’t again” situations.

Here’s an Instyle interview with Cat about her vintage-inspired jewelry collection for QVC. You really should check it out – I love what Cat says about her doing the “leg work” for folks who might find vintage hunting intimidating (like me) but do like the look.

Here’s an interview Lauren did a little while ago with Zap2it.com about her Dancing with the Stars and American Idol favorites. She confesses that she has to watch everything dance on t.v. 🙂 Me too, Lauren.

And here’s another older piece about Kherington Payne and Jonathan Platero joining the cast of a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Enjoy all the random and odd!
