Hi everybody. I’m back after a little tiny break and I hope everybody’s doing great!

Guess what else is back?! SYTYCD!

The UK version returns on March 23rd and Nigel is going to commute every week from the US for American Idol to Britain for SYTYCD UK. I loved last season, I’m really excited that I don’t have much longer to wait for Series 2.

Our own US version of SYTYCD returns May 26th. I’ve read that Mary Murphy may have to tame her Tamale Train a bit after her throat surgery. It’ll be interesting to see if John will like the quieter Mary better.

Anybody else excited to know when we’ll get our SYTYCD fixes again?
