It was pretty much a given the second word leaked So You Think You Can Dance stalwart Mary Murphy had been fired. And now it’s official.

Paula Abdul will be a permanent judge on the long-running FOX reality competition. Speaking of FOX, this marks the third reality series the “Straight Up” singer has judged- American Idol and The X Factor USA being the others. She’s also previously appeared on SYTYCD as a guest judge.

Clearly, this switch up was in the making for some time now. I’m pretty certain producers were waiting for Murphy’s contract to expire. Let’s just hope, Paula brings the crazy with her. The 52-year-old singer isn’t the only new blood being injected into the show. Find out below who else is sitting with Paula and Nigel Lythgoe.

It’s definitely a little cheesy but undoubtedly thoroughly entertaining. Current So You Think Can Dance judge Paula Abdul certainly thinks so. Her smile and giggle says it all. During the group round of the Austrailian version of the dancing competition, five male contestants gyrated their little hearts out to LMFAO’s “Sexy And I Know It.” They’re all a little twinky for my taste, but there are a couple potential cuties among the bunch. Check out the clip below.

Once again, Nigel Lythgoe is tinkering with So You Think You Can Dance’s format. For the 11th season, he’s borrowing a bit from both America’s Best Dance Crew and The Voice. For the first time on the FOX dancing show, dance crews will be featured. They’ll take part in a battle/choreography round, Lytghoe teased. I’m not sure how this crew-battle round will fit in with the regular solo competition we’ve grown accustomed to, but I’m intrigued.

In other SYTYCD-related news, I stumbled across this wicked performance on the Ukrainian edition on Boxing Day. A few friends were over and we marveled at Yanis Marshall’s insane routine to Beyonce’s “Grown Woman” on the show. You might remember Marshall from his epic Spice Girls dance routine medley he filmed in Paris over the summer. On a side note, one of his backup dancers is beyond hot. My friends and I were in heat watching it. Check out his latest number below once again in fierce heels.

Okay, the first part of that isn’t a surprise, I think everyone and their blind grandmother knew Tucker Knox played for our team. However, his married status is a bit of a surprise. The So You Think You Can Dance Season 10 alum revealed this juicy tidbit via Instagram sharing a couple of photos of his hubby who kinda sorta looks like him. Apparently, the two have been happily married for five months. Congrats.

This bit of news renewed my annoyance with the FOX dancing competition. Clearly, some of the contestants are gay but producers choose not to disclose or share this info with the viewers. Fine, their sexuality could be a secret but the fact Knox was married would’ve been an interesting fact to share. This reminds me of Adam’s rant regarding Kent Boyd seasons ago. Remember his ramblings about SYTYCD being anti-gay? Check out the lookalike couple below and weigh in afterward on why you think Nigel refuses to reveal some of the contestants’ sexuality on air.

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.

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?

It’s hard to believe that the summer is winding down and we find ourselves tuning in for the So You Think You Can Dance Season 9 Finale! At the end of this epically long two-hour event, Skeletor will hand pick SLASH America will decide who their top favorite female and male dancers are from this year’s fresh round of contestants. While this season has been sluggish at best, and it seems inevitable that this will be the last season for the Fox hit that has slowly declined in the ratings over the past few seasons, I am quite excited for tonight’s episode. First off, it was announced on Facebook that pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen would be performing during tonight’s episode, and that’s reason enough to tune in!!

Let’s get on with the show! Actually, wait! Who do you think is going to win this co-crown?! I think it’s been too obviously set up for Cyrus NOT to take home the male prize, sorry Chehon. For the ladies, it’s been a much tighter race to the finish; however, I think Eliana is going to sneak out the win even though I truly feel Tiffany deserves the crown as well. We’ll know soon enough!

The show opened with a recap of all the past winners for the last 8 seasons, including the nonsense that was Russell’s season. That still makes my blood boil…

SYTYCD 9: Top Four FINAL Performances!

In: Dan, TV Shows

Holy smokes kiddies, where did the summer go?!? It’s hard to believe that the ninth season of So You Think You Can Dance is winding down, and we’re already at the stage where the final four dancers take to the stage for one last performance. I have to admit, I’m secretly relieved. While Adam has been an AMAZING guest writer throughout the season, my absence for some weeks has really caused an inability to connect with this year’s set of dancers. Is there a dance from this season that I truly remember, and would place in my all-time favourites collection? No. And that doesn’t make me happy.

I truly wanted to believe Skeletor’s over-produced rant about finding the best set of dancers this show has ever seen, but as the season has played out those words have simply proven to be false. Sure, Eliana has had some brilliant routines, and Cole was a master at embodying his characters each week, but was there a Melanie, or Twitch, or Alison, or Jakob caliber performer? Not by my standards. The fact that Cyrus, while brilliant in his own style, is still in this competition of apparent ‘all around’ best dancers just further proves my point. If So You Think You Can Dance survives to air another season, I BEG of Nigel Lythgoe to let go of his ridiculously tight grip on this competition and truly let America decide who should be going home from the very first week. Bring back a fresh top ten new girls and guys, and pair them up for the first few weeks. Showcase new dance styles again, like the brilliance that was Bollywood when it was first introduced. Help us fall in love with the next Kerrington, or Travis, or Heidi, or Neil, or Brandon, or Janine. Hell, let Cat Deeley choose her own outfits again! Take the standard recession business model, and get back to your roots and remember the core of what made you great in the first place.
