Nigel Lythgoe has announced the seventh So You Think You Can Dance All-Star: LAUREN!
Lauren Gottlieb was only 18 years old when she became a contestant on the third season of SYTYCD. Despite her young age, she proved she was a force to be reckoned with. For the first five weeks of the competition, Lauren was partners with eventual third place dancer Neil Haskell. Together they performed some memorable dances such as Wade Robson’s “Night of the Dancing Flame” angel and devil jazz piece and Mia Michaels’ contemporary “Let the Drummer Kick” dance in sunglass goggles. However, Lauren’s most memorable moment on the show would have to be the Shane Sparks Transformers-inspired hip hop routine with another Season 7 All-Star, Pasha Kovalev, to “Fuego” by Pitbull, which was nominated for an Outstanding Choreography Emmy Award!
Since her time on Season 3, Lauren has made a nice career for herself in the entertainment industry. She’s appeared in films such as Disaster Movie and Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, on the TV shows Ghost Whisperer and GLEE (recurring role as Vocal Adrenaline dancer), and in commercials for many different products. Also, Lauren continues to support the show that launched her career by often coming back to So You Think You Can Dance to assist choreographers like Mia Michaels and Tyce Diorio.
Welcome back, Lauren!
Here are your Season 7 All-Stars:
