So You Think You Can Make a Thread About Dance (ACTUALLY ABOUT DANCING)

So @lostwords and I were shocked to find that there is no thread for the greatest reality competition show around

dance(22).jpg

That's right. A show about dancing. Cuz it is AWESOME.

Here's the cast!

Emmy-nominated host Cat Deeley
Cat is about 500 feet tall and skinny, so they put her in some really ridiculous outfits, but most of them are very, very short. So that's a plus, right? Also she's British, because all American reality TV shows need a British host apparently.

Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe
Nigel is also British. He is also a retired tap dancer, and creator of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, which sponsors young dancers and the ever-fun National Dance Day.

Ballroom expert Mary Murphy
She screams a lot.

And lots of awesome guest judges.

By the way, they're having some wacky lady on as a judge at some point, I think you may have heard of her

There are also some absolutely amazing choreographers, not that any of you know who they are if you don't watch the show.
Emmy-winner Mia Michaels (Contemporary)

Napoleon and Tabitha, also known as Nappytabs (Hip-Hop)

Tyce Diorio (Broadway)

Travis Wall (Contemporary)
Travis is awesome, by the way, because he started off as a contestant on this show a few seasons ago. Now he's nominated for an Emmy. RAD.

And a shitton of others!

Here's the cast of Season 8! Nevermind I can't find a cast photo of season 8

Here are some of the contestants!

This is Melanie. She is my favorite. She is gonna win.

This is Marko. He is also pretty cool.

Here's Tadd, who is the best waltzing b-boy I've ever seen.

And here's ummm let's go with Caitlynn cuz she's super cute.

Here are some of the best routines from SEASON 8. I assume people will link previous best routines, but these are the ones from this season that are super-rad.

By Nappytabs


(will be updated as the weeks go on)

ALSO these are guest performers from a few weeks ago, but this is the most incredible thing I've ever seen EVER. Watch it.


BUT we cannot make a SYTYCD thread without including the best routine possibly ever

    I think the title is very misleading cause obviously everyone there can dance.

    It is possibly the worst title I've ever seen. It is entirely too many syllables for a good title.

    But

    It is a good show

    Jordan's going to do it. She thinks she can dance.

    I unashamedly love this show

    the Australian version is crap, but we get the American one after the season is over

    I love it

    Happytabs are the best choreographers EVAR

    When living with some friends we all got into America's Best Dance Crew. I thought of making the move to watching SYTYCD too, but one of my friends said ABDC was better. After I moved out I started watching this and now distrust that guy.

    This is the only talent-based reality shows I can actually stand. Dancing is an art form and some of these people do it really well.

    les twins rule pretty hard. apparently part of this routine was stolen by some guys auditioning for this season of sytycd! their inferior rendition still got them sent through.

    So bored of the multitude of 'talent' shows on telly. Dancing, singing, modelling, cooking, house renovating, there are DOZENS of shows consisting entirely of people competing in front of yelling/screaming judges/coaches.

    It gets real old after a decade or so

    I do like watching the routines on ABDC but I just can't get into the show quite like I do for SYTYCD

  • satansfingerssatansfingers Registered User regular
    sytycd just isn't really for me. i get bored during most non-hip hop dancing. that alex and twitch one is cool though.

    Don't get me wrong, I still like it and recognize the killer routines. It just seems like, aside from the first season, there's only one group that I really like out of each season - which makes for a boring episode to episode viewing. Granted I haven't watched more than the first couple episodes of the latest season, but still - I can usually find a lot more to like per-episode of SYTYCD.

    the most recent season of abdc was the best top to bottom in a long time, except for the group of little kids that only got votes because they were precious little children. i am me is probably the third best winner behind jabbawockeez and quest.

    Guys do I need to include a description of how the show works in the OP y/n

    Cuz it seems most people know it but just in case

    ·
  • lostwordslostwords Registered User regular
    yesss @sheri yesssss this thread is tops! great OP!

    also, this season has been so jekyll and hyde.

    positives: guest judges like jesse tyler ferguson and kristen chenowith have been amazing, travis wall is a judge now! and there have been two pairs that have wowed me, melanie/marko and tadd/jordan. individually, sasha and melanie are powerhouses.

    bad: the first double elimination was terrible, cutting the best bboy and a world class ballroom dancer, and even the tapper didn't seem so bad. a few dancers stuck around way too long, like alexander. and fucking pussycat dolls is getting shoved in our faces all season, jeesus. a few of the newer choreographers have been flops, like the one hiphop guy and that odd dance for the starving children of africa, which was just yargh

    and cat deeley is adorbs, as usual

    what happened with season 7 where they had fewer dances and none of them were paired off in the voting stuff

    because that seemed really weird, I couldn't figure it out

  • SheriSheri Resident Fluffer My Living RoomRegistered User regular
    Viv, they did an "all stars" season, where they paired with all stars from previous seasons

    I didn't like it

    This year they're doing both. Top 20=pairs, top 10=with all stars

    the latest season of America's Best Dance Crew was poop in that the kid crew made it way too far based on cuteness and dumbness of the voting public alone. I.Am.Me is so damn amazing though, i spent days watching all their videos, like tryouts and individual member videos

    and yeah, the season has been way too contemporary, blah. can't even think of one good hiphop number so far this season. and alex getting hurt and not being able to be an all-star is poop

    season 6 is the season I know best because I watched that bad boy start to finish

    and that was the season where I didn't have a stand-out favourite

    season 6 was amazing, like ellenore was my very favorite, but i also loved kathryn and her squeky nervous voice, mollee, jakob, russell, and legacy for sure. they just made it way too soon after season 5, and it felt kinda rushed and no tour, which is a shame

    i hated iconic boyz so much. but there were so many good crews. footworkingz, request, phunk phenomenon, street kingdom, and i am me were all better than, say, we are heroes.
