So You Think You Can Dance

Without a doubt, my favorite summer reality television show is So You Think You Can Dance (SYTCYD). Aired on Fox (which is channel 29 on our Directtv), this is like American Idol for dancers. There are the open auditions at the beginning of the season, then the next round in Las Vegas that puts the dancers through a rigorous week of challenging routines, and then the choosing of the finalists. This year, SYTYCD changed things up by only picking out five gal finalists and six guys (rather than the usual ten and ten). Also new this year is the presence of some All-Stars; these are twelve dancers who were contestants in the past and were fan favorites. How awesome it is to see Twitch, Mark, Neil and Ade each week this year! This new format where the finalists from Vegas are paired with the All Stars was a little iffy at first but seems to be working; it’s certainly entertaining. There’s also a wide variety of routines the dancers are asked to do from hip-hop and crump to salsa, jazz and Bollywood. This really is a show for everyone.
