Another season of So You Think You Dance premieres tomorrow. Can you believe it’s the tenth season? It just seems like yesterday when the dancing competition began. In its inaugural season, it was all about crowning America’s Best Dancer. Realizing it was just one big popularity contest, it quickly changed to America’s favorite dancer. For the purpose of this post, it’s all about crowning America’s hottest dancer. My kind of contest.
Over the years, FOX’s dancing competition has featured a bevy of flexible studs, dropping it like it’s hot while shirtless and sweaty. Every season there seems to be one or a couple male contestants that captivate the hearts and eyes of teenage girls and horny gay men everywhere. I decided to go back through all the seasons and pick the Top 15 hottest male dancers to ever compete on the show. Will recently-anointed winner Chehon Wespi-Teschopp make the cut? One particular season dominated my list, owning all Top 3 slots. Find out which one and my HOTTEST pick below.
I haven’t followed So You Think You Can Dance as religiously as I used to. However, after seeing a couple promo videos, I’m actually looking forward to the dancing competition’s tenth season. Adding to my excitement is the fact Season 9 was a step up from the previous years. Airing only once a week definitely revived the show.
The first clip I have for you gives a behind the scenes look at the SYTYCD Season 10 All-Stars during a photoshoot. On hand are Homorazzi friend Mark Kanemura, along with Twitch Boss, Allison Holker, Whitney Carson, Lauren Froderman, Kathryn McCormic, Robert Roldan and Neil Haskell. Speaking of Neil, he is looking better than ever. The blond cutie has certainly aged well. A few of them give updates of what they’ve been up to since their respective seasons. Holker talking about her engagement to Twitch is a smudge adorable.
The second clip you might’ve seen on television already. It’s a promo highlighting the science of dance with numerical algorithms sketched over dancers performing. One of the best teaser promos I’ve seen in awhile. Last and certainly not least, the final clip gives a first look at Season 10. Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy along with guest judges and host Cat Deeley talk about the talent and what to expect this upcoming season. Watch all three videos below.
Love is in the air, especially for former reality television contestants. Just the other day, a showmance on Big Brother resulted in Daniele Donato and Dominic Briones’ wedding. Just a few months prior, another couple from the CBS summer guilty pleasure also tied the knot- the infamous Brenchel. From the looks of it, Cupid has moved on and aimed his love arrows on another long-running reality show.
To the best of my recollection, I can’t think of a relationship resulting from FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance. Even American Idol has Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo. Please correct me if I’m wrong. If not, this could be SYTYCD’s first engaged couple. Not just any ordinary one at that, but an All-Stars one. Can you just imagine how insanely beautiful their first dance will be at their wedding? The best part of this news is that I actually really like both of these two. Have any guesses? They’re pictured in the photo above.
Looks like Nigel Lythgoe has been a good boy in 2012. Shocking because he’s on the naughty list in my books. The American Idol producer just received word that his reality show baby, So You Think You Can Dance, has been renewed for a 10th season.
“Great news for Christmas: FOX officially picked up Season 10 of #SYTYCD # DanceOnFox. First audition City Austin TX. #MyBestChristmasGift.” – Nigel Lythgoe’s Twitter
Truly, I’m a little shocked. When FOX trimmed down the series to air only once a week for its ninth season, I thought the dancing competition was on its last legs. Much like MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, SYTYCD has been slipping in the ratings steadily the past few years. MTV axed ABDC, so I assumed a similar fate would follow the FOX show. Apparently not.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the amazing work that Nigel and the entire So You Think You Can Dance team has done over the past nine seasons. This show is truly one of the most compelling series on television and I can’t wait to bring it back for Season 10,” – Mike Darnell (Fox’s President of Alternative Entertainment)
When the Season 9 finale aired, I thought the proverbial fat lady had sung. I compiled my Top 15 Hottest Male SYTYCD Dancers list, thinking it was permanent. I was even going to laminate it ;) Now, I’m going to have to update it when the next season starts. Hopefully, there will be some decent talented eye candy. That’s the only way I’ll keep tuning in. I’ve grown very tired of the series. Too much power rests in the judges *cough* Nigel’s hands *cough*. Don’t you agree?
Last night, the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The night was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who I think did a great job. He opened up the show with a skit that involved many of the night’s leading women beating the botox out of him (I’ve included the video of this below). There were some funny moments (Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus during her acceptance speech) and some touching moments too (when Aaron Paul accepted his award for Breaking Bad).
Some of the winners were predictable, while others came as a surprise. That being said, to some Homorazzi cast members, there wasn’t that much that was surprising to them. As you may or may not know, five of us decided to pool together our predictions for some of the key categories and we laid them out in our predictions article. Now, that the results are in, we can see who won.
It was very close between two cast members, but in the end one came out on top. One cast member got them all wrong. Find out how myself, Donovan, Adam, Tyrell, Matt, and Nic did below. I’ve highlighted the winners in each category in bold.
Since the 64th annual Emmys air on ABC tomorrow, we thought it was the perfect time to share our predictions on who’ll walk away with the coveted statues. Will reigning shows like Modern Family and Mad Men continue their winning streaks, or will new upstarts like Girls and Homeland crash the party? For the first time, none of the big four broadcast networks has a series among the nominees for drama series. In fact, only two nominees in the comedy category air on a major network. It’s all about cable these days. Without further ado, check out all our predictions below. Which Homorazzi.com writer do you think will get the most correct? Sound off in our comments section with your thoughts.
Donovan: Mad Men
Patrick: Game of Thrones
Adam: Breaking Bad
Tyrell: Downton Abbey
Matt: Game of Thrones
Nic: Game of Thrones
Season 9 of So You Think You Can Dance is in full swing and this year, is only coming to us one night a week. Without the dreaded, hour-long elimination show, I’m sure this season will pick up the pace and be a lot more exciting in its two hour time slot. Hurray! To celebrate the beginning of the show now that auditions have finally aired, FOX has released a new viral video that is both hypnotizing and mesmerizing.
Titled 200 Moves In 200 Seconds, the network literally threw together 200 moves from its previous eight seasons into one, jam packed video. It’s basically a routine in itself. Combing some of the best contemporary lifts and a few turns and jumps, the video literally shows off just what the show is about… great dancing! I cannot wait for Season 9 to really kick off tonight! Celebrate with us and check out this absolutely amazing viral video below. Will you be watching the show tonight? Let us know!
Sorry for the delayed post folks, I was in Toronto for work this week and just got back from a whirlwind trip that included a visit with fellow castmate, Kevin! We gushed about this season of SYTYCD and needless to say we’re PUMPED for the level of competition this year, and the slew of Contemporary dancers.
I definitely had a few early favourites from the audition rounds this year, and I’m hoping that we’ll truly be seeing one of the best seasons of So You Think You Can Dance to date! Time to tune in and see if your favourite dancers make it through to the live performance episodes.
From the opening intro alone this two-hour episode is going to be produced with the MAXIMUM amount of drama! The judging panel is once again extended for this stage of the competition to include krumper Lil’ C, the legendary Debbie Allen, homo-favsies Adam Shankman, homo-runner up Tyce Diorio, Screamin’ MM and Skeletor (unfortunately). All of the dancers took to the stage once again to perform their solos – this is it folks, CUT THROAT TIME!
