Finally My Blonde Favorite (LoFro) Won!

Many of the readers of Pure SYTYCD are familiar with my personal bias towards blonde female dancers on SYTYCD. Try to tell me that Kayla Radomski, Channing Cooke, Kherington Payne, and Heidi Groskreutz aren’t fantastic dancers. Of course, the biggest problem with it all is that I had terrible luck with my favorite blonde girls getting sent home very quickly on SYTYCD. The good news is, the spell is broken and LoFro won!! Woot!! I guess all my predicting that Kent Boyd would win worked!

In honor of me, Dennis sent me some videos of my blonde LoFro winner. Thanks Dennis!

SYTYCD All-Stars Musings

From our friends at SYTYCDism:

General:
– 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 “Twitch” 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. 🙂 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:

Channing Cooke Does Hip Hop

Everyone knows that Channing was my favorite on SYTYCD (partially due to my love of Blondes I think). So, of course, I totally LOVED these videos of Channing doing Hip Hop (Thanks to SYTYCDism).

This one is just beautiful of Channing:

Here is one of her and Ivan Kourmaev from SYTYCD season 2.

It’s amazing that Channing was kind of “branded” a contemporary dancer when she does Hip Hop this well. I wonder what kind of dancer Channing would consider herself. Yep, I just became even more of a Channing fan! We’re going to have to work harder next season to find these little nuggets of information before the top 20.

I couldn’t seem to find these videos online. I don’t remember seeing Brandon and Ariana perform on The Ellen Show but I could’ve sworn that Philip and Bianca did. If you know where to find one of these videos please let me know in the comments section.

Channing and Kevin’s “Signature Moves”

We just said goodbye to Channing and Kevin, but I thought I’d post their “signature moves” from the SYTYCD website. I like both of the moves, and Kevin shows some personality! It would have been fun to see these two continue to grow out the show, but I have no doubt they have big careers ahead of them.

Channing

Kevin

I’ll post their exit interviews when they become available, hopefully it will be soon!
