Adam Shankman Becomes Permanent Judge on SYTYCD

Summer TCA Tour - Day 10

As reported yesterday by various media outlets, the insane and talented Adam Shankman has been named a permanent judge on SYTYCD. I don’t know about you guys, but this makes me so happy! Adam’s comments are always hilarious and insightful at the same time. I think his personality works really well with Nigel and Mary as well.

Below are two videos, both from season 3. The first is the opening number that he choreographed for the top 14 to “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray. The second one is some “behind the choreography”, start at about 1:32.

Everyone is definitely entitled to their own opinion, but I think the producers made a solid choice in adding Adam. Get ready to see him every week starting October 23rd!

What is it like to be choreographed by Adam? Start at 1:32

Send Me Your SYTYCD Season 6 Spoilers!

Hi, everyone! I’m Margaret, the new spoiler and behind-the-scenes extraordinaire here at PureSYTYCD. Throughout the weeks I’ll be scouring the internet for spoilers and tips on anything and everything season 6. That being said, I’ll need your help! If you all happen to come across any info, leave it as a comment on one of my posts! I check those too and I’ll be sure to give you credit for your detective work! Season 6 is just around the corner so start the spoilers coming!
Additionally, I’ll be posting behind-the-scenes videos from and YouTube all about the choreography, costumes, etc as well as the elimination interviews. I’d love to hear your comments about those as well!

With my little introduction out of the way, here is my list of my 5 hopes for Season 6 (in no particular order):
5. a return to the awesome hip-hop of seasons past. waiting from the top 20 show (Jeanine and Phillip) to the top 8 show (Kayla and Jason) between awesome hip-hop routines is too long!
4. please don’t bring Toni Basil back as a guest judge. usually the guest judges bring fun and a great personality to the table, but with Toni I feel like all the personality gets sucked out of the room.
3. I know it’s all about getting the angles of the dancers, but the camera jumping gives me a headache!
2. I would LOVE to see more collaborations between the choreographers from different genres (the Calle Ocho piece from top 16 week was one of the highlights of the season for me)
1. no more Russian folk dance!

Thoughts?! Any more you would add to the list? And who’s excited for season 6?!
