In the past couple years, several dance shows started airing on national television. So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy open up
So You Think You Can Dance Season 3 finalist Lauren Gottlieb was front and center during a production of Duffy’s “Mercy” on Fox’s new hit show, Glee. Lauren played a member of the Vocal Adrenaline glee club who performed intricate, back-bending choreography on last Wednesday’s episode. Glee airs immediately following So You Think You Can Dance on Wednesday nights.
On the 61st Primetime Emmy® Awards live telecast, So You Think You Can Dance choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo choreographed a routine that showcased reality TV show dance and included some SYTYCD alumni. Season 4’s Joshua Allen, Katee Shean, and Mark Kanemura, and Season 3’s Hok Konishi and Dominic Sandoval danced on the Nokia Theater stage.
Acclaimed producer, director and choreographer Adam Shankman has joined SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE as a third judge. Shankman, who has been a guest judge and choreographer on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE since 2007, will sit alongside Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe and draw upon his expertise to critique the dancers throughout the competition.
Did you catch some familiar faces on television while watching Sunday’s Video Music Awards? The awards show included a tribute to Michael Jackson, during which Janet Jackson took the stage to perform. Her back-up dancers included So You Think You Can Dance choreographers Tyce Diorio, Wade Robson, Laurieann Gibson, and Dave Scott.
Congratulations Tyce Diorio on winning the Outstanding Choreography Emmy® award at the 2009 Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards. This is the first Emmy® win for the choreographer and the fifth win for So You Think You Can Dance. Tyce received the award for choreographing the “Adam and Eve / Silence” contemporary piece danced by William Wingfield and Jessica King during Season 4. Judge Mary Murphy called the dance “one of the most amazing pieces I’ve ever seen on the show.” Will and Jessica returned to So You Think You Can Dance’s fifth season to perform the Emmy® nominated number on a results show.
We caught up with So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy to ask them how their show differs from the other dance shows out there.
Even though the Season 6 auditions are on the air now, they actually took place during the thick of Season 5.
After a spectacular fifth summer season of So You Think You Can Dance, television’s hottest dance competition series makes its fall debut when it returns for an all-new sixth season on Wednesday, September 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Hosted by Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance continues to amaze viewers as dancers skilled in everything from Hip-Hop, Krumping, and Popping to Salsa, Jookin’, and Jive compete to be named America’s Favorite Dancer.
