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.

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.

Immediately after winning the fifth season of So You Think You Can Dance, Jeanine was met with press and photographers. “I felt like I had just been bust out of my normal life and thrown onto some Hollywood red carpet.” This dancer from Pinecrest, Florida isn’t jaded by all of the attention. “I am so happy to be here, I am so blessed to be here, and loving every second of it.
