So You Think You Can Dance Guest Columnist: SOLOng, Farewell!

4 December 2009 5:53 AM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

[To better cover the technical talents of season 6, we've brought on  Dr. Goddess, a guest columnist with decades of dance experience. She will share her dance-pertise in a weekly column recapping and reviewing So You Think You Can Dance with an eye on technique.]

Parting is such sweet sorrow and the So You Think You Can Dance results show is always bittersweet. On the one hand, someone is going home. On the other, we get to see a wonderful opening number and great guest performers onstage. This week, I realized that Tyce Diorio is a hit-or-miss type of choreographer. Rarely does there seem to be room for contemplation with his numbers. Either he knocks it out the park or a piece is an epic fail. This time, his opening number was a "blah" epic fail, wherein the dancers looked as though they were simultaneously dancing for their lives in one chaotic mess or practicing random power moves and poses for an appearance in Dance Spirit magazine. The all-black costuming to a Billy Joel number did not help one bit. Bless your heart, Tyce. You are due for a great one. »

Nigel Lythgoe talks 'Sytycd' guest judges, finale changes and President Obama

16 September 2009 12:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

  On Wednesday (Sept. 16) morning, Fox made the big announcement that "Hairspray" director Adam Shankman was going to take a place as resident judge on the sixth season of "So You Think You Can Dance," which made us wonder about the fate of veteran "Sytycd" guest judges including Debbie Allen, Mandy Moore, Tyce Diorio, Mia Michaels, Tabitha & Napoleon and Lil C. Fortunately and conveniently, Fox had already set up a conference call with series judge/co-creator/exec-producer Nigel Lythgoe, so I made a point to ask about how a permanent three-judge panel would impact future guest judges.

MTV Video Music Awards Is a 'Sytycd' Affair

9 September 2009 5:01 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Next week's MTV Video Music Awards is shaping up to be a So You Think You Can Dance affair. Season 3's Travis Wall (and new, triumphant Sytycd choreographer) will be choreographing the evening's opening number, Season 4's Mark Kanemura will be a back-up dancer for Lady Gaga, and fellow Season 4 alumni Kherington King's music video for Fame will also be show during the Vma's.

But that's not all folks, while So You Think You Can Dance wasn't able to swing a Michael Jackson tribute dance/show, MTV is. According to Wade Robson's Myspace, for that Mj tribute MTV will be bringing in a handful of So You Think You Can Dance choreographers including Wade, Mia Michaels, Brian Friedman, Tyce Diorio, Dave Scott, and Laurie Anne Gibson. The best of So You Think You Can Dance's choreographers will be performing along side Janet Jackson, in what is sure to be an emotional tribute. »

So You Think You Can Dance: "Ouch!" Go the Dancers After Last Week's Group Routine

2 August 2009 10:38 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

I think I have enough reason to be scared for most of So You Think You Can Dance's final four.  As it turns out, Tyce Diorio's group performance from last week's result show led to three of this season's finalists to come off with injuries, literally.

You might want to blame that big box in the middle of the stage for that.  Evan's complaining of pain in some parts of his body.  "There is a part where I hang off the box from my knee and the edges were a little sharp," he said.  "So the back of my left knee and the crease of my right elbow are really hurting." »

New Photos of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Arriving in Paris for 'G.I. Joe' Press Tour

28 July 2009 6:00 PM, PDT | Channing Tatum Unwrapped | See recent Channing Tatum Unwrapped news »

Thanks to Ok Magazine we have some new photos of Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan as the newlyweds arrive in Paris on the next leg of Chan's 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' press tour.

You can check out all of the new photos from their arrival in the slideshow below...

Before leaving Paris, Jenna tweeted a photo of an adorable dog she met on the streets of Paris. One thing that's hard to miss in the photo is her gorgeous wedding ring. As if he was reading our minds, wedding guest Adam Shankman was nice enough to provide a close up when he tweeted a sweet photo showing Chan and Jenna's custom-made Neil Lane rings at the July 11th wedding. Enjoy...

Chan and Jenna are now in Tokyo, Japan for what I think may be a red carpet premiere on July 27th, and next they will continue the tour in Seoul, »

So You Think You Can Dance Fans Hating Hard on Katie Holmes

24 July 2009 11:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Katie Holmes might have gotten "happy" on So You Think You Can Dance last night, but the fans seem more than a little disappointed. Our comments section is exploding with your less-than-complimentary thoughts about her lip-syncing, "prancy steps" and hat-throwing. You're not alone. Shanna Moakler was downright angry with Mrs. Tom Cruise's Judy Garland homage, choreographed by Tyce Diorio. "I am f---n Insulted, Katie Holmes how dare you!" she wrote on Twitter. "I didn't just grow up on musicals, I lived and breathed them, Oklahoma, Easter Parade, Family Band, don't touch my legends! ur not worthy." Yeesh. The former Dawson's »

'So You Think You Can Dance' Tackles Breast Cancer

23 July 2009 2:17 PM, PDT | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

Raise your hand if you watched last night's "So You Think You Can Dance." Put down the tissues first. The show featured a breathtaking tribute to breast cancer, choreographed by Tyce Diorio, that left all the studio audience and all four judges (including guest judge Ellen DeGeneres) in tears.

"So You Think You Can Dance" usually offers one "serious issue" dance per season. Last year, choreographer Jean-Marc Généreux dedicated a Viennese waltz to his daughter, Francesca, who suffers from Rett Syndrome. In 2007, Mia Michaels created a contemporary routine about her recently-deceased father. Both of those numbers left me a little cold. I appreciated that the choreographers dug deep to express themselves, but in both cases, I found the routines to border on schmaltz-town.

You could imagine my trepidation when the pre-performance taped package rolled, and Tyce very solemnly announced that the dance was about breast cancer — specifically a friend of »

Katie Holmes on 'So You Think You Can Dance': 100th Episode Preview

23 July 2009 10:45 AM, PDT | Inside TV | See recent Inside TV news »

'So You Think You Can Dance'? Katie Holmes thinks so. On July 23's 100th episode of 'Sytycd,' the actress will perform a song-and-dance tribute to Judy Garland that was choreographed by Tyce Diorio and Dion Beebe. She's helping promote the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which gives dance scholarships to underprivileged students and was created by the show's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, 'Dancing With the Stars' judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and film director/choreographer Adam Shankman ('Hairspray'). "I can't say anything about it -- all I know is that Katie Holmes is an incredibly talented dancer, singer, entertainer, much more so than ...Read more

So You Think You Can Dance: The One That Makes Everyone Cry

23 July 2009 9:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Even before last night's show started, we knew something special was coming. Head judge Nigel Lythgoe had tweeted earlier: "You all know I like to tease you about the show. Well tonight has an historic routine that will always be talked about from now on. Amazing." The moment we heard what Tyce Diorio's inspiration for his contemporary routine was, we knew exactly what Nigel was meant. That's also just about the point when we started crying ourselves. Let's just say, if So You Think You Can Dance titled routines ala Friends, this one would be: "The One That Makes Everyone Cry."

Ellen Gets Serious on a Two-Timing Sytycd

22 July 2009 8:12 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's a good thing Tyce Diorio waited for Ellen DeGeneres' guest appearance to unleash his latest work on us. Our tears might have carried us away, Alice in Wonderland-style, if she hadn't been there to provide some comic relief on the heraldic 99th episode of the understandably Emmy-nominated So You Think You Can Dance. Let's start from the beginning (and parts of the middle), however, shall we? There was nothing not to like about former contestant Travis Wall's opening group number. And now that Kupono's gone, each solo was as impressive as the next. And Brandon's, the last of the night, was especially good. The routines (two per couple) were a bit hit-and-miss, however. But »

Emmy Nominations Reveal Few Surprises

16 July 2009 10:01 AM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

It's a good day for funny people, especially if your name is Tina Fey or Seth MacFarlane.

Fey's series, 30 Rock, was handed 22 Emmy nominations this morning, which stands as a record for a comedy series. She and Alec Baldwin were also nominated for acting awards. Plus, for the first time some of the other actors on NBC's laffer  were recognized. Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer and Tracy Morgan all picked up supporting nominations.

MacFarlane's Family Guy was also nominated for best comedy series, the first time an animated show has cracked that category since The Flintstones in 1961. Two years ago MacFarlane decided to pull his show from contention in the animated series category to have it considered for best comedy.

Mad Men, the drama about the advertising world in the sixties, picked up 16 nominations in the drama categories, including a best actor nod for Jon Hamm. Hamm is also nominated as »

So You Think You Can Dance Choreographer Tyce Diorio Spills on Katie Holmes' Big Number

10 July 2009 6:15 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Megaceleb Katie Holmes is guesting on So You Think You Can Dance in two weeks in support of the newly established Dizzy Feet Foundation. But how did the "Get Happy" performance come to be, and what inspired someone to ask alleged prisoner of Hollywood Katie Holmes to perform a classic song by alleged prisoner of Hollywood Judy Garland? Well, we just spoke with Sytycd judge Tyce Diorio about the number he choreographed for Katie, and he told us all about his true inspiration... According to Tyce, the inspiration was as simple as a catchy tune appropriate to the times. He told us tonight after the show, "We were sitting and listening to music, Katie and I, and Judy Garland's 'Get Happy'? »

Two Favorites Say Goodbye on So You Think You Can Dance

10 July 2009 5:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Tabitha- and Napoleon-choreographed "Seven Nation Army" group dance that kicked off tonight's So You Think You Can Dance top 12 elimination show was enough to make a girl pledge allegiance to the White Stripes.  (Wow!) Sadly, it wasn't all zippy numbers—we also lost two well-regarded dancers. Who went home and why? We've got the scoop, straight from the set... Caitlin Kinney and Phillip Chbeeb were eliminated tonight. The other bottom-six dancers were Jason Glover, Jeanine MasonMelissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi.  So why did Caitlin and Phillip go home? As judge Tyce Diorio told us after the show, "In the weeks to come, if Phillip had a paso »

Recap: 'So You Think You Can Dance' - Week Five Performances

8 July 2009 10:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So Cat cut her hair... which, apparently, the audience needed to applaud for ten minutes. Really? Because it doesn't look that good. Sure, it works with a period dress and dark lipstick, but I suspect it just looks like a frizzy mess without the retro hair clip. Seriously, it looks like one of those "This a-hole I was dating dumped me and you know what? I need to do something Drastic" moves that every woman ends up regretting. Hang in there, Cat. Tyce Diorio is on the judges' panel, which is exciting, because it means I can call him Toasty Oreo »

Katie Holmes to Appear on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’

3 July 2009 11:30 AM, PDT | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 1000 times, So You Think You Can Dance is one of my favorite shows on TV. I honestly think it is the best pure-talent show in the reality competition genre. As good as Bravo’s shows like Top Chef and Project Runway are, you still have some idiots who are just good TV sneak in. On Dance, after the obligatory audition rounds (which are shockingly short if you’re an “Idol” fan), everyone who makes it through to Vegas has serious chops.

They’d have to. Make a wrong move doing some of those routines and a dancer could hurt not just themselves, but their partners too.

I’m also a huge Katie Holmes fan. Yeah, yeah, the TomKat craziness sort of hurt her rising star a bit, but what can I say, Dawson’s Creek rocked my world. Plus, in my teenage years, »

Sytycd Top 14 Meet Aliens, Broadway, Classical Ballet ...and Katie Holmes

So here's the skinny on the Katie Holmes stuff: In announcing the establishment of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, an effort to provide scholarship opportunities for underprivileged dancers, Nigel Lythgoe was tickled to also announce that Holmes will be taking the stage for So You Think You Can Dance's 100th episode. The actress (who's in on the foundation with Lythgoe, Carrie Ann Inaba and Adam Shankman) will be dancing in a Tyce Diorio-choreographed tribute to Judy Garland on July 23 and donating her entire appearance fee to Dizzy Feet. And as for the dancers not yet married to movie stars... The voters have their work cut out for them, because most of the Top 14 really tore it up »
