SYTYCD Season 7 News Roundup

Here are some fun items covering SYTYCD Season 7 and the premiere.

I love this one mostly for the picture – everybody’s smiling so big that their eyes are closed (except Nasty Nigel, who IS smiling, but with his eyes wide open). And here’s a fun quote: “…it really is a warm weather series. Mostly because everyone on it is always sweaty and almost naked.”

Cat reveals she watches the show in her pjs, in her interview with Korbi. Best quote ever: “‘You know, Ryan [Seacrest], you’re one of the hardest working men in show business I know. But I do everything that you do, but in a mini skirt and four-inch heels …’ But he did say he has been known before to get in a mini skirt and heels. But only on weekends, apparently.” Here’s another interview with Cat. And another. And a interview, as well. Annnnd a Reality Rocks interview that includes a cute pic of Cat with Dominic.

Korbi also interviewed Mia, who decided she needed a signature move since she’s replacing the resident “screamer.” Here’s what she came up with: “Maybe I need to do the thing where, [whenever] anything I love [is done], I get to just throw my leg on the table with the shoe… maybe I need to take my shoe and just put it on the table,” she says in the video below. “You know what, I think we’ve just created something that might be legendary, actually.”

And because Korbi rocks, she also interviewed Nigel, who revealed that though both Billy Bell and Alex Wong made it to Vegas Week, only one got a coveted Season 7 Top 10 slot. No offense, Alex Wong, but I hope it’s Billy Bell.

MTV noted the influx of contemporary dancers in New York and Miami (at least shown). Check out this MTV article mostly for the awesome pic of Mia (and her shoulder tattoo!).

SYTYCDism has more photoshoot images up. First, new group shot. Check out Lauren-Mark-Kathryn in the middle. HOT! Then, an image of the judges! Then, headshots and action shots of each of the All-Stars. Yes, they’re all mightily airbrushed. But they are pretty. AND, Neil is sexier than ever before! And that’s saying something!

Entertainment Weekly announced the premiere’s ratings and said that SYTYCD/FOX “won the night,” against the likes of FlashForward‘s series finale. Check out their recap of the premiere here. They’re always entertaining, even when I disagree wildly with them, like I do about Teddy Tedholm – “You remember in Mean Girls when Regina told Gretchen to stop trying to make fetch happen? Well, I wish SYTYCD would stop trying to make 18-year-old Teddy Tedholm happen. Perhaps I’ll eat my words later, but Nigel & Co., Teddy Tedholm is not going to happen. Sorry.”

This item also reports on the premiere’s ratings, but uses a photo of female dancers on a SYTYCD-like stage and I don’t recognize a single dancer. Can anybody name who these dancers are? I’m thinking maybe a former season of Canada since it’s still North America.

Check out tons of pictures from the Fox-hosted premiere viewing party, including a few details of Cat’s ensemble (which makes sense, now that she’s designing her own QVC line). Judges, choreographers and All-Stars are represented, as well as random actresses showing off their legs. Check out these selected (by moi!) images:

Check out these bios of the All-Stars, Mia, Cat and Adam by TVGrapevine. I selected the bio for Courtney for my link, but if you look to the left, they’re all there.

Click on this piece just for the Sonya choreography reel at the bottom.

Here’s an interview with Mia, talking about being back on SYTYCD and the new rules. “I’m all about the art of dance. I’m sitting in a very commercial world, but I come from a different point of view because that’s what really turns me on with dance is the artistry and the commitment and the work ethic and the craft.” Here’s another interview with Mia. And another. And another where she calls herself the “artsy-fartsy” judge.

Check out this hysterical “edit” of the All-Star photo, complete with thought bubbles. Found it here. Read more..

SYTYCD All-Stars on Ellen 5.27.10

Mark and Lauren had tweeted that they were going to be dancing on ELLEN with some of the all-stars, but I was in class so I missed seeing it live. Thank goodness for YouTube! Here’s the clip, it features Mark, Allison, Twitch, Lauren, Comfort, Dominic and Kathryn. Missing 🙁 are Neil, Courtney, Ade, Anya and Pasha.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching them all dance together. Allison looks AMAZING for having had a baby!! Wow. I wish we could have seen all 12 of them but this was really fun.

Returning for Season 7

Louis Van Amstel. He tweeted this yesterday: As far as i know i WILL BE part of SYTYCD this coming season.
Im actually really looking fwd to this season
This is news I like for obvious reason that Louis is an amazing ballroom choreographer. Also it gives me hope that maybe we could see Dmitry, Lacey, or Chelsie. So welcome back Louis can’t wait to see what you will bring to season 7.

Dance is one of my biggest passions. I grew up dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio (the same studio that Kathryn McCormick). I have a BFA in theatre/dance from Valdosta State University. Tap is my favorite style of dance.
