Welcome back all you SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE fanatics! I’m back in the driver seat covering the upcoming season of So You Think You Can Dance (USA version) for season 8 of the BRILL-BALLS reality competition. This show has brought us some incredible talents over the year, including my personal favorite Travis Wall, and raised unknown choreographers to celebrity stature, such as Mia Michaels, Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio.
The show itself won’t be on the airwaves until summer 2011, but the cross-country audition tour is happening right now and the windows of opportunity to showcase your unique talents are closing fast. The following is the official schedule, also posted on the show’s website…

Seriously dancers, there are only three more cities left and you only have until March 12th to get your act together and find your way to either Salt Lake City, Atlanta or Los Angeles. Get your dancing shoes on and get your butts in line!
If last season is any indication of where So You Think You Can Dance is headed, we’re bound to see a few new surprises, the possible return of past all-stars, further same-sex-couple routines that will blow your mind and more of Skeletor’s (Nigel Lythgo) raving lunatic rants and perverted comments!
Bring on the spray tan, Botox and teeth whitener now, as it’s going to be a year to remember!
It is my personal goal to eventually make it to a taping of one So You Think You Can Dance episode, and I’m sure my bashing of the Executive Producer and lead judge is going to help my cause! Meh!
