The Male Ballroom All-Star is…


Today, Nigel Lythgoe tweeted:

From Season 3 representing Standard and Latin Ballroom PASHA

Happy Easter Tweets everybody. I’ll Give you another All-Star Tweet on Tuesday.

Pasha Kovalev was a star on Season 3 of So You Think You Can Dance. He made the show in 2007 with his longtime dance partner Anya Garnis. The Russian turned New Jersey native is a Latin and Standard Ballroom dancer who made it all the way to the week before the Season 3 finale.

Pasha can’t seem to stay away from So You Think You Can Dance! He assisted Mia Michaels in a Season 4 number, and he also co-choreographed a piece with Anya during Season 4, Season 5, and Season 6! In addition, Pasha and Anya led hometown audition choreography during Season 6 auditions. Last year, Pasha, along with Anya, participated in the Burn The Floor tour.

Welcome back (again!), Pasha.

Did you see Nigel’s other tweets this morning?

He may be leaving “Idol” but he’s joining the “All-Stars” before his wedding, representing the genres of Wacking and Vogueing- SIMON COWELL

Later, Nigel tweeted that those reveals were just April Fools jokes. Oh, Nigel!
