A Season 5 All-Star will be on Season 7

Welcome back, Ade Obayomi!

Nigel Lythgoe revealed yesterday morning via Twitter:

Today’s #SYTYCD All-Star is the extremely strong @ADEEVERYDAY. Ade from Season 5 will be an excellent partner in contemporary and classical.

Season 5’s Ade Obayomi won over the hearts and telephone lines of Americans last summer, and made it all the way to the Top 6. A self-described “Contemporary with a hint of Hip Hop” dancer, Ade rose to the challenge each week, whether it was rumba, jazz, or even classical ballet. Ade’s partnership with Melissa Sandvig was an amazing one and led to the heart-felt and emotional “Breast Cancer Dance” to Maxwell’s “This Woman’s Work.”

Ade still keeps in touch with many of his “5 Alive” fellow contestants, and he even lives with Season 5’s Jonathan Platero and runner-up Brandon Bryant.

Ade will join the previously announced All-Stars for Season 7: tWitch, Kathryn, Pasha, and Allison. Many more to be announced, so stay tuned!

Here are your Season 7 All-Stars:

tWitch Boss
Kathryn McCormick

Pasha Kovalev

Allison Holker
Ade Obayomi
Comfort Fedoke

Lauren Gottlieb
Mark Kanemura
Anya Garnis
Dominic Sandoval
Courtney Galiano
Neil Haskell

    Ade, I think you are a beautiful dancer. I also believe, because of your amazing strength and your ability to ‘be there’ for your partner in so many amazing lifts…that it becomes expected of you..and the compliments from judges get fewer and fewer. You have such beautiful lines and expression…and when you dance…I am enthralled. But I don’t think the judges appreciate you for yourself. Don’t just be there for your partner.. When Ashley received the compliments of being the most beautiful dancer she was able to let go because she had the confidence that you were there for her…you did not receive on comment of acknowledgment..but they never failed to acknowledge the other all stars. What is up with that?? YOU ARE AMAZING!! Indeed…my favorite dancer.
