Nigel Lythgoe Gives Props to Katy Perry, Throws Shade on Simon Cowell

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_ccckvtba"]] Nigel Lythgoe clearly has beef with Simon Cowell, because he went after him ... after Simon went after the "American Idol" reboot. We got the longtime Ep of the Og "Idol" Friday on his way to E Baldi in Bev Hills, and he thinks the new judge's panel -- Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie -- is rock solid. [[tmz:video id="0_d5aajzi1"]] It seems Nigel's heard the promo for our new show, "OBJECTified" Sunday night on Fnc, where

Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Allison Holker's Love Is Like a Good Line Dance: Electric

  • Popsugar
Stephen
When it comes to cute dance couples, few can compete with Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Allison Holker. Today, Allison is known for being a pro on Dancing With the Stars and tWitch for being a dancer in Magic Mike Xxl, but their love story actually started on season seven of So You Think You Can Dance, where they were both performing as all-stars. Even though they barely talked to each other the whole season, they eventually let their true feelings show during the wrap party when they danced the night away together. And from there, the rest is history! While filming a commercial together in 2013 (which included dancing), tWitch surprised Allison by getting down on one knee and proposing. That December, they made their relationship official by getting married at Sytycd creator Nigel Lythgoe's Villa San Juliette Vineyard and Winery in Paso Robles, CA. Together they have two children: Allison's 9-year-old daughter,

  • TVSeriesFinale
In an effort to boost viewership, the 13th season of So You Think You Can Dance shook up its format and featured dancers between the ages of eight and 13. Still, the Fox dance competition dropped even further in the ratings. This season, it is returning to basics with dancers ages 18-30. They've also brought back Mary Murphy and added Vanessa Hudgens, who will judge the competition along with co-creator Nigel Lythgoe. Will this do the trick? Cancelled or renewed for season 15? Stay tuned. Hosted by Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance pits dancers against one another, in a bid to become “America’s Favorite Dancer.” This season, the Fox contestants will demonstrate their ability in various dance styles, including contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation, breaking, and more. The Top 10 will then be paired up with All-Stars who will guide them throughout the competition.

3 Reasons 'So You Think You Can Dance' Season 14 has a Losing Format
So You Think You Can Dance season 14 is playing out just like last season-- except with adult contestants instead of kids. The All-Stars built their teams of four dancers at the Academy, where the brutal cuts will continue until each All-Star has just one dancer left.

It is certainly understandable that So You Think You Can Dance is trying to keep things fresh and funky, on and off stage. This season there is a new judging panel: Nigel Lythgoe, newbie Vanessa Hudgens, and returning, the hot tamale herself, Mary Murphy. But does this format hurt each dancer's chances of winning, and doom some gifted dancers? I think so, and here are the reasons why.

"The biggest star in my mind at the moment is Bruno Mars," Lythgoe, 67, expressed. "I think Bruno is fantastic. I don't know if he'd do it."

However, the producer noted that "just because he's a great singer and a great performer doesn't necessarily make him a great judge... You can never tell how a person's gonna be."

As for his feelings on bringing back the reality singing competition show? Lythgoe thinks "it's slightly too soon for it."
