Mia Michaels, while I'm sure is trying to be the next female Simon Cowell, is rude, crass,unprofessional & embarrassing to listen to, she makes the show uncomfortable to watch.Jose is my favorite & even if he doesn't win will surely be a star in everything he tries, he's so honest, innocent, willing & just plain Adorable.He literally eats the camera & has his audiance begging for more. I'm sure there will be lots of BAD PRESS for Mia after tonights show.. Shame on you Mia, you stink as a judge, looks like all of the praise last season went to her HEAD!
The episode on Wednesday, August 4 was overkill on bashing Adecheke. Are the judges plotting to bring his confidence down? Nothing he does will ever be good enough for them. Their comments unnecessarily critical. If this kind of ganging up on dancers continues, I will stop watching the show. The episode on Wednesday, August 4 was overkill on bashing Adecheke.

Please sell past episodes of the show; there are so many of us fans waiting to buy all the seasons. It is hard to recall past dancers ad specific choreographers without the So You Think You Can Dance DVD's to refer back to. Love all the judges and miss Mary Murphy - so I'm glad she's coming back. Everything is perfect, we all just want to watch it more and want to refer back to specific dances and events. Looking forward to next season, can hardly wait. Why do i need 100 words, this is all i have to say
HATE the new format! New stage is too small. Camera work is still bad. Amateurs shouldn't have to compete with Pros as partners because they will always look unpolished/bad. I used to care about partnerships and individuals and now I don't because my eye is always going to the pro - except in the case of Comfort who I can't believe they brought back cause she looks sloppy and sluggish. They used to praise the choreographers to choreographing to the couples strength. So how does that happen now when the pro is in their strength area and the contestant isn't?
OK I love this show.I am not a dancer but it made me take lessons just for fun. I am actually an artist that works in film and set design and that was one of the things that really drew me into the show... now I am hooked but have the unfortunate task of looking at this horrible stage!! The size of the stage really isn't the biggest problem. It's all of the giant grid bars that light up and seem to interfere with the visual lines of the dancers. If they took off those neon grid bars that jut into the background I would at least be happier.
I also have to agree with others that the projections on the screen behind the stage are a big issue. I believe these images were the demise of Chaning and kept people from emotionally connecting with her routines. I love when they built sets and use them as props. Stick to that.
The new editing style is also obnoxious. The framing of Kat is bad and the camera work has become a bit strange- I think mostly in part because they are trying not to moiré the lines of the screen behind the dancers. Nevertheless- the moiré is still present alot.
My nickname is Ruth. This is my first time here. Hi everyone! I have fairly strong opinions about the media,society as a whole, and what we call "entertainment." But, please keep an open mind and try not to be judgmental towards me. I will do the same!
So much for my favorite show continuing to be my favorite show! I'm in the midst of watching "So You Think" and I just have to put an opinion down: The dancers are doing great, but the choreography (in general) has been abysmal! I don't like the way they're going with it AT ALL. Too many choppy, violent, unbecoming poses and moves! Yes, we love emotional dances, but I think they are trying to out-do one another and it is turning out badly, in my opinion. Jean Marc, as he would say "Come On People!" He has become so irritating! First of all, the man loves to hear himself talk. Please, stop! I used to really like him on the show, but no longer! I beg you, man, quit trying to control everything and everyone and stop talking so much! Quote from Jean Marc (for the sixth time in six dances),"First of all......I want you to give it up....for ___insert choreographer___ ." The audience ALREADY gave "IT" up,Jean Marc. -Of their own free will. Just do your job and stop pretending you are the king of the dancehall. I am so over you. ARGH! I sure hope the show gets better! ( On a positive note, Austin (who I really like for the top 3)and Melanie just did the waltz and it was danced beautifully) Thanks for letting me share, Ruth
I used to love this show but now that season 6 is over and they announced the winner I am totally disappointed and just cannot undestand how ignorant they think Americans are. This show must be rigged. This result is humanly impossible...America got gipped! Jacob should have won. Russel is a very avarage dancer and connot compare to the magical Jacob. Russel should have come in third place, maybe...This show is a joke and I will never watch it again. What poohh!I am in disbeleif...When will justice overcome crime...I feel Jacob got robbed. I know I am just mumbeling away not but this is wrong in many ways.
The dancers have been fantastic the choreography has been amazing. The only thing is that the backlighting is so bright it completely drowns out the dancers and you cannot see them. Please get the lighting on the dancers not behind them. I want to see the dancers not the glare of the lights. Other than that it has been a perfect season. The top four deserve to be there. The technique of Kayla was pure joy, the passion of Jeanine incited me to move, I've looked forward to Wednesday and Thursday with anticipation each and every week and feel the top four put on an amazing show... BUT THE LIGHTING!! WOW, change that!
I just started looking @ So you think you can dance this season. I regret never looking @ this Reality Show. I never knew that people had that much talent dancing. I can't wait until September for Season 6! Lil' C is gorgeous!
I love "So You Think You Can Dance". I hope the show stays on for a looooonnnnggg time! It going to get better & better every year! I notice that alot of people don't like this reality show. I can not dance like those people do on T.V., but yet...I will not talk bad about them. They can dance their ASSES OFF! So who am I to judge or talk about them. People need to see the show for what it is & give the show & dancers their Props!!! Sound like HATERS to me! Can't wait For Season 6!
This show has come a long way since its beginnings... I can't even remenber the dancers from season one! But since season two, the dancers who come throught the show are just amazing. some of the dances are just AMAZING!!! I'm happy that the show has given a chance to dancers, my friend is a dancer and I can see how hard it can be to live by your talent.
I'm also happy that SYTYCD is a summer show, because every thing is off for the season and this is a great replacement, but why change it to fall?? Now I hace to much to watch!
Shane Sparks must have had too much on his plate, Don't know why he had two couples?? bet they will end up in the bottom three though because of the choreography. bring back bollywood that was choreography!!!! next time I hope they will go all out and get more choreographers,at least one per dance couple. caitlin and Jason did a wonderful job on the bollywood number last week, which by the way is very hard to learn. this week they get stuck with half choreographed routine and now they are going to end up in the bottom three... So unfair
This is by far one of my top 3 favorite shows! I love how it challenges each dancer to learn different styles of dance. Max and Kayla were phenomenal!! I had to watch their Samba routine twice, it was so good. There are alot of really great dancers but my only grip about the show this year is that there is only one really great hip-hop/popper. At least last year there was the season ending dance-off between Robert Muraine and Phillip Chbeeb. That was just fantastic! Phillip made it this year, and I hope he does well. I am looking forward to lots of great choreography and new tunes too.
LOOOOVVVEE THIS SHOW. i think ill go on it some day. i hope it never ends. its coming on again in the fall!!! the judges have great personality and are totaly funny. Unlike amarican idol the whole show is good. im talking about the auditions, group rounds, and end. amarican idol gets boring at the end were on so you think you can dance it only gets better. The coreographers do a great job and are given credit on the show. the dances are AMAZING and i always have to rewind and see them again. I am always left super excided for the next week to come.
Well, I have watched this show on occassion. Now for the absolute last time. The gay couple were very good dancers. Not professional but as good as some that were accepted. Yes, they had a mishap at the end of their audition. Who doesn't make mistakes. Well, this show did in my book. These "professional" judges ALL indicated they were confused because they could not tell who was leading. These judges are choosing who makes it to the show. Wow - they cant tell who is leading because it changes between two people. Good thing it wasn't a group dance. Sounds like "pro" judges to me. What a joke! Then the judges told them they would like to see them dance with girls. And paired them up with girls - only to bring the two guys back individually to tell them they did not make the show. The judges did not handle this situation with any professionalism. The guys should have never been bought back with the girls if neither were going to be accepted. Pure humiliation. I will not view this show in the future. But "thumbs up" to the guys for their courage!
Every year when I see "So you think you can dance" it absolutely amazes me on how the dances can move their bodies in such a way and the emotions that seems to leap from the screen and slap you in the face to leave you speechless for at least ten(10) minutes at a time.
I think a Program like this is very important in our world of chaos. Besides the lights, music, Judges and fancy costumes, I think it's more than that. It shows the basic structure of what makes us human, celebration, expressionism, passion, enlightenment, commitment, sadness, happiness. These are "true" emotions that we hardly get to see on our screens today.
I would definitely rather see the raw emotions on "So you think you can dance" as opposed to a billion dollar Block Buster Film with award winning actors.
It's also great for the Community, Cultural understanding, personal achievement and yes it is extremely all round great viewing. A show that I hope will be around for my children to appreciate and maybe someday be on if they themselves choose the art of dance.
So You Think You Can Dance grows each season in talent and entertainment. The show is a combination of comedy from host, judges, and participants and interesting segments of dance, that shows what the individuals and teams are capable of.Better every time
So You Think You Can Dance is a creative mix between the dancing, the comedic effect, and the cast's growth and relationships. All three elements are shown throughout the show and make it an interesting success. The viewer has a chance to see different styles of dancing come together and perform on a single stage. Not only are there classic routines such as: the waltz, the rumba, ballroom, contemporary, and ballet; there are also more modern types: hip hop, Jazz, street dancing, and sometimes dances that are not categorized. To watch So You Think You Can Dance is in itself an appealing chance to observe the change our dancing is taking. This last season, viewers witnessed two street dancers as the top two, which was a great honor for them and gained respect for their dance choice. To see these two gentleman and others out of their comfort zone and perform so brilliantly was astounding and awe inspiring. I recommend this show to be watched, if even just once, for every season is a new surprise of talent and ambitions.
SYTYCD should hardly be considered a reality show. It is like a real dance competition. I have a great deal of respect for many of the people on this show and what they do. It deserves more viewers than it has. The atheletism, stamina and focus it takes to be a dancer is comparable to professional atheletes and should be respected as much. It is incredibly entertaining, moving, funny; just totally dynamic to watch. It's unique because it takes dancers gifted in their own styles and has them compete in mostly different styles of dance. It takes alot of true earned talent to do. The choreography is really excellent and to pair it with a variety of dancers creates something magical to watch. It shows growth in skill and as a person which also makes it interesting to follow. I can't wait until next year I love this show.
Ok, I really do like the show, but what bugs the hell out of me about it is that its so pretentious and self-congradulatory. This show is so far up its own ass... After every single performance, the first thing out each judge's mouth is how great the cooreographer was, starts a round of applause for them, and then it cuts to the cooreographer in the audience and pat themselves on the back. It would be fine if it was only once in a while, for a few spectacular dance routines, but they do it after every single performance. The show is called So You Think You Can Dance, not So You Think You Can Cooreograph... The show's not supposed to be about them, its supposed to be about the dancers, The judges are so overly pleased with the show's production that they lose sight of that. Has anybody else noticed this? Is it just me, or is that extremely irritating? The only other gripe I have is the female judge who always sits in the middle (I forget her name)...She has the most annoying hyena-like cackle that she does and even worse is the ear-splitting scream when she really liked the performance, yelling something stupid like "You're on the hot tomale train - yes you are!" Whenever its her turn to speak after a routine, I just turn the volume down by at least half before she starts wailing away otherwise her voice is like a rusty nail scraping across my brian. Does she annoy the hell out of anyone else? Those are my two big complaints about the show...but other than that, I still really like it. Twitch and Katee have been my favorites since I first saw them in the auditions. It really sucked when Twitch was in the bottom 2 last week and Will was voted out.
I think this is a okay show to watch. Sometimes it's good. I like it how oriningal people with talent in dancing can autdition for the show!
What I love about this show is that they include different types of dances the contestants have to learn.
What I don't like are the 1)judges. Nigel is good, but Mary Murphy? UGHH. I hate hearing her scream! It makes me want to rip my ear off. The choreographer (sp?) judge is always honest except Mia this season (4). She trashes every female dancer and should be fired emidietly or should only choreograph. 2) Cat Deely. She is 100% annoying at every beginning of the show. It'd be funny if she says "And here are your...?" and no one answers :P
3) Some of the style dances can get really boring to watch.
I love this show! It's always the highlight of me week. I am starting to get just a little upset with the elimination process however. The guys are all so solid. Losing Gev was a huge blow to my heart, but I would have been sad to see Mark leave as well. It's tough to call, but I think there will be a male winner this year. I can actually see it coming down to Will and either Chelsie or Katee. It seems like this season is flying by as opposed to last year. Just so you know, there are weekly recaps over at SpunkyBean.com. Here's a link to their latest: http://www.spunkybean.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=546&Itemid=135
Basically, the best should stay not the popular. And the judges should have the finial call. And I truly believe that at teh end of the show there should be two winners one man one women! The Best of each should win and stop the need for making a martyr.
ok, let me start by saying, I do enjoy the show its one of the few shows I can sit down with my wife and watch together. But I am getting sick of a few little things. I mean it is such a waste of time knowing that right after some one is told they just aren't cutting it, that all the people that love a hot guy get on the phone and vote fore that guy just so they can watch him rip off his shirt again! Then the talented dancer goes home! Its not fare that the judges at the most important time are taken out of the desision making. And the fact that the girls and guys dance all the way to the end together, it really should be a winner in both male and female at the end. I love to watch them Dance and the guest stars and the Choreographers are fantastic. there is one screaming judge I could do with out. But thats the story of life, you get the good with the bad. Anyway, I truly hate to stop watching the show, but such ramdom acts Inconsistency are too hard to watch. I just don't understand how even thou everyone knows it happening why it allowed to continue. Thanks for your time and the chance to share the thoughts
This show combines so many great elements of comedy, drama, and just pure fun. This show is just one of the best reality shows that is on television. I never really watched this until season three, but now i completely love this show. The whole idea reminds me of American Idol, but instead this has dance instead of having people sing for all of their votes. So...yea...i really do not have any thing else to say, so i think that im just going to ramble. I L O V E T H I S S H O W! Y E A!
Coming from being a market barrow-boy and MARRYING a dancer, Judge Len Goodman isn't much cop. He's a rubbish cop-outy teacher and frankly the dance school in Dartford, Kent UK has deteriorated to a derelict mess and one can only suppose the kids who dance there are suffering his newly found pretentiousness. He hasnt spent a penny on the place in years and now overcharges parents to be taught by this world renowned ' judge'. Frankly the man cant dance - his son is the real dancer. what a joke the producers are.
i feel there should be real dancers judging - not a megolomanic Dartford boy whom couldn't decipher a tango from a tap dance. i watch to amuse myself in his utter BS judging, using Dartford blag to pay for his new landrover on Birchwood Drive.
This show is definately entertaining to watch, especially with all the tools trying out. But one thing drives me more crazy than all of teh wackos: Judge Mary Murphy. I hate her face, laugh, and snarlly attitude. I think she's a product of stem-cell research, performed in Rosie Odonnell's basement. This chick is not only scare looking but probably the most annoying thing on TV. Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Fire her! Check out this rant about her:
To tell you the truth i'm not so excited about dance shows like this because to me they tend to be boring. I do like this show though. The judges help the show by a lot with there additudes. Like Nigel Lythgoe (he's supposed to be the meanest of the panel and he's British) he seems like another form of Simon Cowell. Only he's easier to get along with. Mary Murphy has a sorta of weird laugh, and once she starts laughing she won't stop. The auditions are just like any other reality show...Hilarious! I don't know about you but I love to see people bicker with the panel just so they could get some tv time.
So you think you can dance? Well ya can't... truly amazing talent, great challenges, you have to really know your stuff if you want to be on this show, you can't just "wing" it. The Dance version of Idol. Idol (is funnier) but SYTYCD is more realistic
If you like dancing, or watching people dance, then what are you waiting for, turn on So You Think You Can dance. If you are not familiar with this show, at first glance, you may think. Not another Dance show. But you really have to watch this show. The dancers are really incredible, and the choreography that is given to them is beyond awesome, beautiful, and genius! I love American Idol (I'm bringing this up because it's SYTYCD is supposed to be like idol) but I personally feel that Dance takes a lot more out of you. I mean you really have to be good. In dance you're either good or you're not good. Singing people can't sing and yet they make it. Dance to me is on a whole nother level (Talent wise). The only thing that I'll give Idol is that the auditions are HI-LARIOUS (that is my first time saying it like that lol) but I just think that the Judges have a better idea of what they are looking for, and you can tell that the Judges are actually paying attention to what's going on and they have some really good opinions and comments. They don't just try to make the contestant feel bad, they try to give them advice so that they do better next time! Another plus is that Cat Deeley the host is TEN THOUSAND times better then Ryan on Idol (who likes him). Watch this show for real talent and entertainment. Plus on the results show they are able to get cool singers to perform.
Dancers go through a series of tough auditions to demonstrate versatility in most dance styles. The Top 20 go on to dance on tv and are voted for by viewers. Eliminations take place until one is crowned America's Favorite Dancer.
I'll take this show over "American Idol" anyday. Many untrained singers have gone very far in American Idol, and the winners(and many finalists) go on to successful singing careers. However, with So You Think You Can Dance, the winners don't get much publicity, and it takes years of training for the contestants to make the Top 20. I appreciate the hard work and dedication of these talented dancers. Dancing also entertains me, even though I don't dance at all. These people dont' have natural talent, they worked hard for it and deserve to show off what they have learned. Although some of it seems a little rigged in order for some contestants to get more votes, it's a great show!!
As a dancer myself, this show has become a personal favorite. I'm so amazed by how good some of these people are. I've just got into it in the fourth season, and I think I came at the optimal time. The dances are fabulously choreographed and danced, mostly, to perfection. I've learned a lot from just watching them, and I'm totally inspired. I've wanted to make my own routines more interesting and dynamic, and this has shown me how much I could do with my body. True, the judge Mary is very annoying, with her loud voice, but she's a small price to pay to watch these really great dancers.
If you like dancing, if you like to see young people challanged every week on different types of dances and partners. You will love this show. It is very entertaining. Every week it get you going with different beats and dances. If you don't get in the groove with a show like this, then you should stay away from music and dancing it is not for you. The only downfall for me regarding this show is 1) Cat Deeley. Sometimes I can't stand her, actually most of the time I can't stand her I find her very anoying. But for the rest it is good, it is "Fame" live.
So much of reality TV today is in the American Idol vein. Promos of tragic lives or catchy stories, then the viewers call in and whoever is cutest or most popular gets chosen. The contestants are often chosen in the first place for ability to connect with viewers as opposed to actual talent. This show is different. First of unlike some other shows *coughdancingwiththestarscough*, the show uses real dancers, dancers who have trained all their lifetimes for such an opportunity. Secondly, while viewers do play a role and can vote for favorites the judges make the final decision, eliminating the chance for great yet unappreciated dancers to get kicked out because they aren't cute or popular enough. Lastly, the stories aren't as played up, instead contestants usually answer a revealing question or are shown naturally rehearsing before their dances. This makes them seem so much more natural and a lot less contrived. Overall, So You Think You Can Dance, is an excellent specimen of reality TV and more shows should follow its example.
