Vegas Odds On So You Think You Can Dance
So You Think You Can Dance is a spirited and exciting American televised dance competition created by choreographer American Idol Producer Simon Fuller and TV director Nigel Lythgoe, also a former dancer in the Young Generation. With stints as American Idol executive producer, and film and television producer, and having performed with the legendary Cyd Charisse and Gene Kelly, and choreographed for Ben Vereen, Shirley Bassey and the Muppets, Nasty Nigel knows talent. Returning to the system format used in its inaugural season, the dancing competition delivers a much more positive spin on auditions. After cross-country auditions are held, the most promising young dancers are sent to Las Vegas. Once in Las Vegas, the finalists face-off until one male champion and one female champion are crowned.
About TV Show So You Think You Can Dance
Season 9 of So You Think You Can Dance is upon us, and this year there are a few new wrinkles that the contestants will have to face. SYTYCD has done away with the weekly results show, something that has been around from seasons 2 through 8, a process that fans were quickly getting impatient with. Both Fox and series creator Nigel Lythgoe decided to go back to the series' roots, while adding a little twist. This season we will see for the first time two SYTYCD champions, one male and one female crowned.
The show is still based strongly around auditions which are held across the United States, with the solid focus of the show being on finding the best unheralded dancing talent America has to offer. In 2011 Melanie Moore went from an unknown auditioning in Atlanta Georgia, to the sole survivor in Las Vegas and was crowned last year's SYTYCD champion. Back in Atlanta this year there were many young contestants with stardust in their eyes hoping to repeat Moore's success, and one notable talent had to prove her claim that she could "fart with her neck."
Regular judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, along with legendary dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen, looked on in surprise and fascination as Audrey Case of Oklahoma demonstrated her "talent." Not much was expected of her after that questionable ability was displayed, but she surprised everyone with some awesome dance moves, keeping constant eye contact with the judges. After a standing ovation it was off to Las Vegas for Audrey. Boris Penton was one of three Atlanta roommates who were all auditioning, and Nasty Nigel Lythgoe called his pop and lock dance style mesmerizing and absolutely stunning. It was off to Vegas for Boris, and if you are as good at spotting talent as Nigel is, a small wager on a contestant this early in the season could have you dancing a celebratory jig when the winners are announced at the end of the year.
South Carolina's Josh Alexander's emotionally fluid moves stunned the judges into silence, and they told him to pack for Vegas as well. Tim Conkel is a champion karate instructor who uses dancing as a way "to meet girls." His moves were enough to charm the judges, and Debbie enjoyed his "naughty boy quality," while Mary commented on the "explosive" nature of his karate powered dance moves. With the 2012 season of So You Think You Can Dance crowning two champions this year for the first time, some dynamite talent is sure to be on display. Check back here often this year for the latest breaking news and Vegas odds on So You Think You Can Dance competitors.
