Kent Boyd and Kathryn McCormick made it to the finale of their respective seasons and they were excited to get the opportunity to dance on the So You Think You Can Dance 2010 Tour. They opened up about traveling around the country, their future, and the fans.
What’s the best part about being on tour and what are you going to miss most once it’s over?
Kent: The best part about tour is finally meeting the fans one by one and just talking to them and letting them know we’re down-to-earth people. We’re just like them and we thank them for all the support they’ve given dance, the show, and to us. I feel like the thing I’m gonna miss most is just all these people. I know I’m going to see them after the show, but living with them day in and day out and sharing everything and dancing with them—you just form a bond. It’s never going to be the same because I’m never going to have to dance with all these people and share the same experience dancing again.
Kathryn: Seeing how huge of an impact this show has on people has been awesome. When you’re on the show, you don’t realize how many people are watching it. But when you do 40 shows for thousands of people and you get to meet all those people, you realize how big of an impact and how many people are so connected with you and feel like they know you. And you’ve made them realize things about yourself through the stories you’re telling on stage, so it’s incredible. That’s what inspires me to keep doing the same show every night, because you know that there are people out there that need to see that, and it’s such an incredible feeling.
I have yet to miss a So You Think You Can Dance tour, and I anxiously waited for the Season 7 tour to roll into my hometown. The Season 7 Top 7, plus special all-star guests, rolled into Los Angeles on their penultimate tour stop.
Artist Christina Perri got her big break on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance when Billy Bell and All-Star Kathryn McCormick danced a Contemporary piece by Stacey Tookey to her song, “Jar of Hearts.” After the song aired on June 30th, fans responded extremely well to the song and flocked to iTunes. The unsigned singer suddenly sold over 100,000 copies of “Jar of Hearts,” performed on talk shows, and was invited back on So You Think You Can Dance to perform the song during the Top 7 results show. During this performance, Christina was joined by All-Stars Allison Holker and Neil Haskell in a piece choreographed by SYTYCD Executive Producer Jeff Thacker.
