So You Think You Can Dance Review: Four Times Four

So You Think You Can Dance Review: Four Times Four

Katie Holmes and Kenny Ortega joined So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy this week, as the final four took to the stage four times each - and it showed in a few sloppy results.

Marko & Melanie - Disco (Doriana Sanchez) - It's been a long time since there was a disco and I'm happy that Doriana hasn't stopped putting insane lifts in her routines. There was something unsexy about Melanie; she needed to let loose. She was worried about the lifts. There was something awkward when the two dancers went between lifts and placing Melanie down. The high amounts of color and sparkles covered up the mistakes. My Grade: B-

So You Think You Can Dance Results: The Final Four Are...

We're down to the final four on So You Think You Can Dance. Let's take a look back on the results show that just aired...

Group Dance - Contemporary (Justin Giles) - The huge flower was an interesting prop and because there are six dancers left, it was nice seeing the six as couples for so long circling around the flower. This also showed that the dancers worked well in a lot of different combinations. The ending with the petals falling was beautiful.

Along with Nigel and Mary, the guest judges were Christina Applegate and Lil' C, with the former giving some strong comments, proving she is a fan of the show.

So You Think You Can Dance Results: Down to Six...

Lady GaGa took to the stage and two more contestants took to the road on So You Think You Can Dance last night. A detailed review follows.

Group Dance - Contemporary (Tyce Diorio) - The group performed a circus themed piece with Jess as the ringmaster and it was interesting to see everyone’s moves used in a freaky kind of way. They managed to cover up Tadd's lack of contemporary skills by placing him on a rope swinging around instead of doing choreography. It was fun to watch because there was so much to look at.

So You Think You Can Dance Review: Going GaGa

Rob Marshall and Lady GaGa joined the So You Think You Can Judge panel this week, as the dancers put in 12 performances. Makes me tired just thinking about it...

Sasha & Pasha - Quickstep (Jonathan Roberts) - Their dancing was over exaggerated in the beginning. It looked like Pasha was holding Sasha upright and, if he wasn't there, she'd fall right over. The dance was done well, but will probably be forgotten. There was something tribal about Sasha's dancing, but it could have been because of the headpiece. My Grade: B+.

I was expecting that the voting process would shift from the judges to America, but this season Nigel, Mary, and Neil Patrick Harris continued the eliminations.

This is definitely giving a buffer zone to the talented dancers that have fewer fans on So You Think You Can Dance. So who survived to dance another week?

It seems like production value of So You Think You Can Dance went up this week in hopes that Nigel Lythgoe could get another Emmy nod.

A few extra camera pans in the beginning and increased set lighting, along with Cat Deeley's always cheeky hosting and guest judge Neil Patrick Harris' best fanboy comments, made for a fun night on the hit Fox competition.

So You Think You Can Dance Review: Like a Moth to a Flame...

With choreographer Sonya Tayeh and Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson by their sides, the So You Think You Can Dance panel judged two pieces by the remaining couples last night. So did we...

Sasha & Alexander: Paso Doble (Toni & Melanie) - The story was supposed to be about fighting and passion and the dance really looked like it was supposed to be for two guys to perform. While a part of me was disappointed there was no cape/matador, the performance was an equal battle that played on Sasha's strengths. The two had power moves in between very intricate choreography, but the middle section was sloppy. The side by side dances and the knee slides were fun to watch. My Grade: A-.

The Top 14 danced their hearts out last night, replete with a brand new set of choreographers.

On the judging panel along with Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe were Carmen Electra and Travis Wall, as So You Think You Can Dance continued the adding a choreographer to mix because celebs are useless. With Wall sounding like Ross Matthews when excited, let's grade all the acts that came before us, shall we?

So You Think You Can Dance Results: Farewell To...?

We're down to 14 on So You Think You Can Dance. Let's review how we arrived at that number last night...

Group Dance - Broadway (Michael Rooney): The geek in me loved that the tune was from The Incredibles. The choreography looked a bit chaotic because of how many dancers there were; several weren’t synchronized. This was the most obvious with the flips and the leaps, but even one arm in the wrong place sticks out. I did like the group assist slow turn at the end; we’ll probably see a dance crew try that in the future.

We're down to 16 contestants and most of them were fighting hard to stay in the competition last night.

The judging panel was increased from three to four, with Kristin Chenoweth joining Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe and Lil' C. As you might expect, Lil' C and Chenoweth were hawking new albums as they critiqued the following performers...

Following a shocking non-elimination last week, the pressure increased for the 20 remaining contestants last night.

Along with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, Debbie Reynolds sat in on the So You Think You Can Dance panel. Unfortunately, she thought everything was amazing and wanted to bring all the dancers to her home for some unknown reason, even those who struggled to earn passing grades...

So You Think You Can Dance: Down to 20!

So You Think You Can Dance is down to its final 20. How did it arrive at that number? Read on for a review of last night's two-hour episode...

The Contemporary Dancers - Ricky, Miranda, and Melanie ended up as finalists. Of the three I loved Miranda's face when Nigel said "bad news" and how quickly she changed when she found out she was in. The fourth space was filled by one of the Mallory sisters. Sasha (the skinny one) was in, but Natalia (the diabetic) was cut, yet remained supportive.

So You Think You Can Dance became So You Think You Can Survive last night.

The excitement of the contestants called back to Las Vegas for seven grueling rounds of auditions was quickly replaced by a montage of blood, ambulances, tears and an angry Laurie Ann Gibson trying to rip weak dancers in half.

So You Think You Can Dance made its final auditions stop last night in Los Angeles. 

As always, the evening began with waiting line cheers, high kicks, Cat learning how to move and slow motion flips. Along with Nigel and Mary, Tyce Diorio brought nothing but snarky sound effects to accentuate Mary's yells.

So You Think You Can Dance took its auditions to Salt Lake City and New York City last night, as Robin Antin joined Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe in Utah, while choreographer Jason Gilkinson was in Brooklyn. Robin's face actually looked less plastic then I remembered, but the commentary she provided was as fake as her face.

We always have a string of contemporary dancers do well during the auditions, so it was nice to see the show try to focus on several different genres, including krump and waackin'. The break dancers and ballroom dancers also delivered a good amount of talent.

So You Think You Can Dance ended its season finale last night with two broken hearts, one dancer $250,000 richer and everyone in need of a crash cart.

The three finalists - Kent Boyd, Lauren Froderman and Robert Roldan - danced eight routines between them, and the All-Stars got quite the workout, too.
