So You Think You Can Dance: Past Winners

In: Dan, TV Shows, Videos

As promised in my last article announcing the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance Season 8 on Thursday, May 26, I mentioned that I would put together a complete list of past winners for you, the ultimate So You Think You Can Dance judging panel, to decide who was truly the most outstanding winner from the past seven seasons. There have definitely been some stand out moments over the past seven seasons so I decided to highlight the winners as well as give my spin on what I felt were their best routines from each of their respective seasons.

We begin with Season One winner, Nick Lazzarini. Unfortunately I never got the chance to watch So You Think You Can Dance in it’s inaugural season as I wasn’t aware it was on TV until the re-runs were being aired on Much Music. Granted, I was still able to catch a few episodes and I definitely remember cutie, Nick Lazzarini and his incredible dance style. Prior to stepping on the SYTYCD stage, Nick trained in lyrical, jazz, hip hop, ballet and modern dance.

As I was looking up the videos for Nick’s routine I came across his audition video and as I watched it I realized this HAD to be part of my write up. With that said, I’ll be promoting each dancer’s original audition video and my favorite routine. Heck, what’s the harm in giving you even more dance?! SIDE NOTE: How crazy is it that Cat Deeley wasn’t the original host in season one? Looking back I totally forgot that the show launched with Lauren Sanchez as the host!

Meet “The Glee Project” Cast

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Take a good look at these kids, because one of them will be appearing on Glee’s third season. In a new reality competition, “The Glee Project” on Oxygen, 12 contenders will compete against each other to win a coveted seven-episode guest starring role on the next season of “Glee”. Oxygen unveiled the talented six boys and six girls hoping to join the likes of Rachel, Quinn, Finn, Puck and company in the hallowed halls of McKinley High.

Starting Sunday, June 12 on “The Glee Project“, these performers from professional and amateur backgrounds will participate in intensive rounds of singing, dancing and acting workshops, called homework assignments. The 10 episode series will feature a trio of mentors who will work with each of the kids in various skills. “Glee” casting director, Robert Ulrich, will work with the contenders on their acting, while Zach Woodlee and Nikki Anders help them with dancing and vocals respectively. “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy will join Ulrich and Woodlee for the final deliberations of each episode.

Oxygen revealed that a group of “Glee” series regulars will appear as guest mentors in each episode. During the premiere, fan favorite Darren Criss (Blaine) will be the first to appear as a guest mentor. Ryan Murphy has revealed that if a guy is chosen, the role will likely be a love interest for diva character Mercedes (Amber Riley). It’s about time Mercedes got her groove back. Check out the Gleeks vying for a breakout role below.

ANTM Cycle 16 Episode 11 Preview Pics

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Final Four baby. Overall, I think it’s ANTM’s best final group in a long time. Though, I would probably swap out Alexandria and put either Mikaela or Jaclyn in her place, but otherwise it’s a competitive racehorse. Even if you ignore Alexandria’s bitchiness, she’s not all that.

The four remaining girls taste the delicacies in Morocco and, during a difficult challenge where the girls must conduct a tea tray-balancing dance with a twist, one of the models loses her cool. At the photo shoot in the outdoor market, one of the girls tries to overcome feeling sick, while another loses her confidence.

Joining the panel this week is London-based designer, Daniella Issa Helayel. Yup, I’ve never heard of her either… LOL. Hopefully, Tyra and company eliminate just one girl. I’m so over the elimination of two models at this point. I love the old days when ANTM was all about the Final Three. Photographer Friedman Hauss snaps the girls this week during the Moroccan outdoor market shoot. Take a look at a few preview pics below. If you can’t wait til next week to see the final panel photos, check out our ANTM photo gallery to get your sneak peek.

Lady Gaga Performs “Judas” On Ellen

In: Music, Patrick, TV Shows

Yesterday, Lady Gaga stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show for a sit down interview and to perform Judas for the first time, and today the episode aired. Lady Gaga looked amazing! She talked about everything from what she wears to bed, to her current tour wrapping up, to being Elton John’s son’s Godmother, and much more. She even promised Ellen she’d wear jeans and sneakers next times she’s on the show. I’d LOVE to see that!

Ellen also asked her about the HBO special, where Gaga says she sometimes feels like a loser. “Do I feel like a loser sometimes? Yes, of course I do. We all feel like losers sometimes.” She then went on to explain how fans reacted last night when she asked them if they felt like a Judas in their own lives:

“I said [to the fans], ‘Some of you may feel like a Judas … you may feel that you’re part of the overarching destiny of life, but you may feel misunderstood by the world and that is how I often feel sometimes, I feel misunderstood. I think we all feel misunderstood sometimes. I really celebrate my identity and urge you to feel impassioned by what is magical inside of you.”

It’s a great interview & performance performance. Watch them both below. I can’t wait to watch the premiere of the “Judas” music video on American Idol next week!

American Idol 10: Top 6 Performances

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I can’t believe we’re mere weeks away from crowning American Idol Season 10′s winner. It’s insane how time flies. After watching how awesome “The Voice” was, I admit, I was a little uninterested in watching Idol this week. It’s not fair to judge an entire series based on one episode, but that’s how good it was. Everyone today was talking about “The Voice”. That being said, when Jacob, Casey, Lauren, Scotty, James and Haley took to the stage, I got into the Idol spirit. Love them or hate them, this year’s Top 6 collectively is leaps and bounds better than Season 9′s lot. With exception to Crystal Bowersox, of course, who just so happens to be performing on tonight’s results show.

This week’s theme revolved around Carole King’s songbook. At first, I was expecting to listen to a lot of songs from her “Tapestry” album. I had no idea, she was such a prolific songwriter before her iconic album. “Tapestry” was the top-selling solo album until Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in 1982 squashed her record. Who knew? Also featured in this episode was singer/songwriter/producer, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. He was on deck to mentor the kids this week. Back in the day, I used to love Babyface’s slow jams. He was the king of old school R&B jams from the late 80s, early 90s. Teen rebel, Miley Cyrus, also popped up for a couple of nanoseconds to give Lauren Alaina advice. It definitely wasn’t a party in the USA. So how did the kids fare this week? Watch their performances and read my commentary below.

ANTM Cycle 16 Episode 10: “Camel Toes”

In: Rich, TV Shows

Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Alexandria officially became one of my most loathed wannabes in all 16 cycles. No joke. She’s right up there with Robyn, Melrose, Jade, and Bree. Her winning ways, both the Go-See challenge and first call out, only exacerbated my disdain. She looks old, she’s fake, she’s bossy, and she brings the worst out in everyone else. Sigh. I guess I should just get used to her being around. Drama breeds stories that feed Tyrant’s editors. The other shiteous news was Jaclyn’s incredibly undeserved elimination. She had some GORGE shots this cycle. Gone too soon… especially when blow up doll Kasia is still in the running. Tonight, they’re off to Morocco. Who will get spit on by a camel first? Who will complain about sand in their coochies? How badly will Tyrant deliver a mangled Middle Eastern accent? Who will be eliminated tonight?

In off-topic other news, President Obama finally showed off his birth certificate today and made Donald Trump look like the total ass we all know him to be. Who in the hell is Donald Trump to rant and rave about the President’s birth. That jackass should be sued and then shoved under a waterfall so we can all see what he looks like when that rat’s nest of a hair-do comes unglued. Trumprant over. Back to Tyrant!

Not wasting any time with silly animated airplanes, we start off this week in Marrakesh. Oh look! A camel! We wouldn’t want to project any stereotypes on Top Model though… would we? The top five are all stoked to be there. Alexandria talks about being misunderstood. I tune her out. Molly is a little stressed about how everyone thinks she walks around wanting to kill people. She’s exaggerating, but she doesn’t want to be seen as the angry girl. She confesses that it might have something to do with abandonment issues from being adopted. Oh no. Not Molly! No more sob stories! Just own your shit and model! The only good thing happening is the joke Hannah just made about “camel toes”. Lols.

A lot happened in last week’s episode, and now Matt, Mike, and Julie find themselves on Redemption Island and are going to battle it out in this episode. After Tribal council, Steve tried to bury the hatchet with Phillip…after the wacko accused Steve of being racist. Phillip is like an angry version of Gary Busey on The Apprentice, except with less clothes. Busey was fired and Phillip needs to go too! The guy says he had a premonition (another one) that he was going to find the shorts that Julie hid on him – and…he did. Ugh…the madness continues. He’s eager to show up to the Redemption Island challenge and show Julie that he found them.

Speaking of Redemption Island, Matt seems to be at his breaking point on the island (after 21 days on Redemption Island) which may affect his challenge against Mike in Julie today. In this challenge, it’s Survivor Shuffleboard. They each get three pucks. The first two to land their three pucks in the end zone continue on, while the third person is eliminated from the game and joins Dave on the jury.

Did you watch the premiere of NBC’s “The Voice” last night? I did, and I looooooooooved it. When I first heard NBC was doing another singing competition show, I literally groaned out loud. With the network’s “The Sing-Off” and “America’s Got Talent” already on the air, along with Fox’s “American Idol” and upcoming “X-Factor“, did we really need another talent competition? Probably not, but I’m glad they decided to bring over Holland’s hit reality show, “The Voice of Holland” over to North America.

If you’ve watched the peacock network at all during the past few weeks, you were undoubtedly inundated with promos for the show. Most notably, their heavily touted unique “blind auditions“. The judges are forced to listen to the contestants’ voices. If they like what they hear, they press the button and their amusement ride-style chairs whip around, revealing the identity of the singer. If more than one judge wants the singer on their team, the judges pitch their mentoring skills to them, in hopes the singer chooses them.

The thing I enjoyed the most about the show was there were no gimmicky horrible performances used as comedy filler. That’s my biggest complaint about Idol and other reality shows. Just show me the talent. If I want to hear horrible people sing, I’ll record myself in the shower. Having said that, I’m glad that there were some singers tonight, who weren’t picked by any of the judges. They weren’t awful, they just didn’t have “The Voice“.
