So You Think You Can Dance Performers in Emmys® Telecast

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.

Last week, So You Think You Can Dance took home two Creative Arts Emmy® Awards. Tyce Diorio won the Outstanding Choreography trophy for his “Adam and Eve/Silence” piece. Costume designer Soyon An won a Juried Primetime Emmy® Award for her costume designs.

    Great routine! But wasn’t Ryan from Season 1 in there too? You don’t have him listed above! I’m pretty certain it was him. Noone has hair like him lol

    I really do not appreciate the way Tyce treated a contestant this evening. He was incredibly rude… I will stop watching if he can not be more respectful. Does he think peole like to watch this?

    Sonya, the choreographer, NEEDS to be replaced. Her appearance is EXTREMELY offensive/ODD!! I love the art of dance; but Sonya is not a necessary example of being creative! There is too much talent in the dance world for her to be on TV with pieced lip and wierd hair for many of us more conservative viewers to have to watch such wierdness! If you continue to have her on, I will no longer watch this wonderful show. Keep a little more mainstream, PLEASE!!

    I think I saw Mark Kanemura on the VMA show Sunday night and just wondered what other SYTYCD alums were on there too. I figured there had to be at least one of their girls in the Florence and the Machine performance, no??

    Joshua Allen was fabulous! Couldn’t take my eyes off him during his routine with Tad. Would love to see he & Katee do the Samba again. They’re my all time favorite sytycd couple. Why don’t they have Joshua on more? He’s so fantastic in so many genre’s. Sometimes it seems he’s being purposefully passed over…loudly ignored. What’s the deal? They praise so many that aren’t half as good. They’ve brought several dancers back many times who can’t hold a candle to Joshua. I vote bring Joshua back many times. Joshua is one of their real stars (along with Allison…those are my best of the best).
