Simon Cowell signs £150m deal to keep X Factor on air despite sagging ratings

ITV breathes sigh of relief as it keeps hold of treasured star, but some pundits say his grip on Saturday nights is weakening

With The X Factor being soundly beaten by Strictly Come Dancing in the ratings and the Us version facing the axe, pundits have started to question whether Simon Cowell has finally lost his grip on Saturday nights. But the television mogul emerged still smiling on Friday as he signed a new deal with ITV worth almost £150m, which will keep the show on air for at least the next three years.

Cowell promised to take his two Saturday night talent shows, The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent, "to the next level" after securing their future until the end of 2016.

His delight was matched by the relief of ITV at hanging on to its most treasured talent, less than a week after it lost its valuable live

'Sytycd' Nappytabs opening number: Best ever?

'Sytycd' Nappytabs opening number: Best ever?
That is certainly a bold claim, but the opening number from Tuesday’s Top 20 performance show (full recap here) was such a treat. I still can’t type the moniker “Nappytabs” (or walk by Tabitha and Napoleon’s urban dancewear store in North Hollywood) without feeling weird about it, but anyway, the duo choreographed a superbly shot (in seemingly one take! …but not) behind-the-scenes routine, set to the perfect snazzy song — “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Herb Alpert feat. Lani Hall. The judges, Sytycd All-Stars, and some choreographers make cameos.

It has a very Xanadu/”All Over the World”-esque vibe,

'So You Think You Can Dance': Nigel Lythgoe claims BluPrint 'didn't grow up in a jungle'

Supercringe! Nigel Lythgoe’s general buffoonery can make for some pretty awkward critiques on Sytycd, but tonight he outdid himself while raving about Dorian “BluPrint” Hector’s prowess in an Afro Jazz routine. “People say, ‘This is your ethnicity, your heritage.’ But it isn’t! You didn’t grow up in a jungle!” the old white man exclaimed to the young black dancer. Say what?! At least BluPrint (pictured, center) put on a brave grin following the comment. As you can see, host Cat Deeley took a bit longer for her “Wtf, man?” face to catch up to the contestant’s.

Mary Murphy on 'Sytycd' finale: Chehon and Eliana -- The big winners!
In the first time in Sytycd history, two ballet dancers take top honors!

In the closest race ever to be America’s favorite dancers, we were in such suspense to find out the answer. I had no idea how America was going to vote, especially since Tiffany and Cyrus were never in danger the entire season. So it took me by surprise who came out on top.

I stayed in my dressing room the night before. That’s right – I whipped out my blow-up bed and reflected on the whole season and which dances were highlights for me! I tried

'So You Think You Can Dance': Performance finale recap
This is it! After weeks of auditions and Las Vegas and live shows, we've finally reached the performance finale! Only Eliana, Tiffany, Chehon and Cyrus remain - but still, we need to pick just one guy and one girl as our winner next week. Obviously you need a great judge for the finale, so joining Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy this time is Rob Marshall! But each contestant is going to be dancing five times in this episode, so we'd better get things going... Cyrus & Eliana - Paso Doble Cyrus and Eliana are back together (hurrah!) and they're working with choreographer Jason Gilkison on their paso doble. But Jason has a twist to the dance - he's switching up the gender roles so that Eliana will be the matador and Cyrus the cape. "I feel more like a mop," Eliana quips, as Cyrus swishes her across the floor. But their

Hello everybody and yes we’re back and better than ever! Each year I have no idea what will be ahead. Will this season’s dancers possibly be as good as last season’s? I believe they are.

'So You Think You Can Dance' Recap: The Top 20 Perform

  • TVology
On tonight's So You Think You Can Dance top 20 show, the ridiculous opening number—a Mad Men-esque office gender standoff set to Kerry Muzzey's "Architect of the Mind" and created by Christopher Scott—did just what it should: showcase the brilliance of these twenty talented kids and how high the stakes will be as we whittle them down to one guy and one girl (two each will head home next week), our Power Rankings tell you the leaders to look out for, as well as who's on the bubble:

1) Audrey & Matthew get a Travis Wall contemporary number, so that's essentially just brought them half a season of life of this show, I'd like to hope. The Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" sets a great tone for a Titanic-themed piece, and where Travis' choreography usually requires completely unrestrained chemistry and technique, they both really nailed it. Every lift, every catch,

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: Roaring 20

There’s a “Closed” sign hanging at the ticket booth for the So You Think You Can Dance Hot Tamale Express, but not because the Season 9 Top 20 isn’t packed with talent. Quite the contrary, I’d say that based on Top 20 Performance Night, there are already a good dozen dancers who’ve scored reservations on the exclusive locomotive (with its crazed conductor Mary Murphy).

The depth of the field — and the lack of unbeatable early front-runners so early in the competition — is good news for fans of the show. The resulting sense of suspense — and the reality that no

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: Ranking the Season 9 Top 20
Watching So You Think You Can Dance‘s Season 9 Top 20 announcement episode — its first this year with live, choreographed dances — I was struck by the fact that the show really is like an old friend. No matter how long it’s been away, it only takes a minute or two for me to fall back in step with its warm and familiar cadences.

There was Cat Deeley, playfully announcing that just minutes into the telecast, she was already covered in the sweat of nearby dancers. (Not nearly as gross as it sounds.) There was Mary Murphy, hooting like a tipsy

'So You Think You Can Dance' Recap: Meet The Top 20

  • TVology
While Nigel Lythgoe announces that this year's competition on So You Think You Can Dance--now reduced to just one night a week--will have two winners (one male, one female), he mysteriously left out how those winners will be chosen. I'm excited for the season to kick off, but I'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to the new voting system. I just can't help but feel like the ninth season--which could be the last if ratings don't hold--might screw its loyal fans over.

We get through our first bunch of dancers, which will obviously be a contemporary bunch because Duh. Alexa, who has struggled through this year's auditions, finally makes it in after getting cut at the last minute in season 8, and she's absolutely ecstatic about it. I'm intrigued to see if she can withstand the pressures of the Top 20, but she is an early favorite. She joins Amber

While every dancer might think they have the moves, less than two dozen make it to the top 20 on the dance-competition series "So You Think You Can Dance." The path to that coveted spot requires a pass through the grueling callback auditions in Vegas, the first of which was underway on Wednesday night's episode.Hundreds of dancers pushed, pulled and injured their way into and out of the show, as they endured a week of intense choreography that tested their skills in all the major styles of dance featured on "Sytycd."The week began with solos, graduated to group routines and culminated with 35 dancers making it to the final week before the top 20 announcement. Some had to "dance for their

'So You Think You Can Dance' Vegas week 2012: Something to cry about

As "So You Think You Can Dance's" careers through Season 9, we're moving closer to the top 20 and the show's perennial Las Vegas week took us one (dance) step closer. But not without some tears. Okay, lots of tears.

The biggest outburst came from Alexa Anderson, who burst into water works after a pretty harsh critique from choreographer Tyce Diorio. Honestly, anyone would've cried after that smackdown.

"I'm beyond your beauty," said Diorio criticizing Alexa's noted inability to emote. "The lights are on, but no one is home."

Judge Mary Murphy was a bit more gracious, encouraging Alexa to let go and "take a risk."

"I'm wracking my brain and pushing myself," says a distraught Alexa who is only 19, though a "Sytycd" vet having made it to Vegas in Season 8. "I know I can get there I know that I can be on this show and I know that I can do it.

So You Think You Can Dance airs the first half of its Season 8 finale Wednesday night, and with Melanie, Sasha, Marko, and Tadd in the mix, you know we’ll be witnessing tears, standing ovations, and possibly even tickets for the not-referenced-as-frequently-as-it-used-to-be Hot Tamale Train.

In the intro they all look good, but the girls are way better at the strutting thing.

The level of the show is much better now. The all-stars bring charisma and chops, and the competitors seem to be challenged. They dance twice tonight; once with an all-star, and once in pairs among themselves.

Cat looks good in a clean, simple white strappy dress and headband.
