Ah well, for all the social-media ridiculousness that pervaded the hour, at least they didn’t replace Cat Deeley with a series of emojis.
But while the Great Stage-Vs.-Street/Jason Derulo-Vs.-Descriptive-Adjectives Experiment of 2015 lacked something in diversity (whatever happened to ballroom and disco?), gut-busting emotional concepts (what I wouldn’t have given for one routine on par with “Addiction Dance“) and insightful critique (Mary Murphy and Misty Copeland, I missed you!), I’d be lying if I said summer TV still wasn’t the better for it.

Needless to say, then, I perked up over the weekend when the judge/exec producer dropped this
Head judge Nigel Lythgoe has already identified a coy, blonde thing whose innocent-but-sexy demeanor (complete with end-of-audition wink) has catapulted her to the head of the class. Cat Deeley remains as charming (if not even more charming) a host as ever. And (praise be America’s dance-studio industry!), it looks like there’s no shortage of crazy-talented kids to give this year’s “Stage Vs. Street” twist a far better chance of garnering water-cooler buzz
Rudy and Tanisha got robbed last week. Valerie had no business being in the Top 6. For justice to prevail, the Season 11 crown could only end up in one spot: Atop Ricky’s artistically dazzling head.

And then, just like that, a rowdy, randy wedding dance, a mind-bending Rorschach test and a brief blast of a favorite 1980 hit made me rethink everything — and I
The question is… did we meet him or her during tonight’s Atlanta tryouts? I wouldn’t be shocked if the answer is “WooHoo!” (aka Mary Murphanese for “Yes!”).
After all, we met a very handsome, very polite young fella with the effortless, swooping grace of a barn swallow, a pretty powerful (and powerfully pretty) gal who scored with the coveted “beast” label from Uncle Nigel, and a returning
I’ll post my full recap of tonight’s performances later on; in the meantime, discuss! The two going home are….

Despite the awesomeness of the first All-Star show with the Top 10 dance contestants, there’e always that dark cloud knowing two of our favorite dancers would be going home.
After the show, we grabbed some time with a few of the All-Stars (Melanie Moore, Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Neil Haskell) as well as the Top 10 (including the 2 eliminated contestants) to chat up the challenges of their dances, how tough it is to say goodbye to their fellow dancers and what dance style they still want to take on.

Nico Greetham and Makenzie Dustman have been eliminated.
Tucker Knox and Jenna Johnson also landed in the bottom four but were saved by the votes of a group of 15 judges/choreographers (I believe this is the first time we’ve heard this number acknowledged,
But for tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance recap, I’m going to take the road less traveled and celebrate a trio of fantastic developments:

Last night’s tenth season premiere treated us to a zany variety of performers, but only five auditioners (so far) are worth the valuable currency of my poetic description. Here are my five faves.

1 | Smash is obviously on the path toward “redeeming” self-absorbed, drug-addicted, obnoxious Jimmy, but after he took the stage high as a kite (leading to a mid-performance injury to Karen) and later chewed out the entire cast and crew (screaming “I’m the only one that did anything anyway!”), won’t the writers’ efforts inevitably be a case of too little too late?
2 | Do Once
Runners up Cyrus Spencer and Tiffany Maher and male/female winners Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Eliana Girard talked what's next.
All-Star Dancers Melanie Moore, Kathryn McCormick, Marko Germar, Allison Holker and Stephen "tWitch' Boss reacted to the results.

The bad news: Witney Carson and Cole Horibe were automatically eliminated after receiving the fewest votes.
Even though America decided their fate after last week's performance show, each contestant had to perform three dances tonight: solo, paired with an All-Star and paired with a fellow finalist.
"Up All Night" star Christina Applegate returned as a guest judge -- and poor predictor. "Your foot was terrible in your pirouette," she said about his jazz routine with reigning champ Melanie Moore, "but I don't give a s***, because you're so good. And we'll see you next week."
Well, at least he'll be in the audience? As usual, Eliana received mostly unanimous raves from the judges, who

Travis went from being a contestant to a choreographer on "Sytycd" before starting his own dance company, Shaping Sound -- which is the subject of "All the Right Moves" -- with fellow "Sytycd" alum (and Season 1 winner) Nick Lazzarini, as well as Teddy Forance and Kyle Robinson. The four friends and roommates "work together, have their lives taped ... and start getting real" on the new series, which premiered on July 31.
"All the Right Moves" returns this week (Tues., Aug. 21, 10 p.m. Et on Oxygen) with its second episode, which will continue to follow Travis, Nick, Teddy, Kyle and the rest of the dancers in the fledgling Shaping Sound company (including
At its core, Atrm is a story of friendship and watching those bonds strengthen through adversity. A tribulation which plays heavily into tonight's episode as the fallout from last week's Travis-gate (let's call it) is a major centerpiece. I caught up with Nick Lazzarini to talk about that bombshell, what it means for the boys moving forward and what it's been like to live his life in front of the cameras once again!

Known for its A-list roster of guest stars, Harry told ETonline, "It would be fun to do a musical number with a whole bunch of gymnasts and swimmers… I'm sure the girls wouldn’t mind Michael Phelps coming in as a guest star." Something that might make a splash on the hit show is a viral rendition of Call Me Maybe.
