So You Think You Can Dance 11: Coverage by Andrew Rogers

Our editor and staff writer, Andrew Rogers is back this summer with a weekly recap of the groundbreaking 11th season of So You Think You Can Dance. The hit dance competition inspires and amazes viewers as dancers skilled in styles ranging from ballet to tap, hip-hop to ballroom, and much more compete each and every week. This year has been a controversial one for the FOX reality show as there is no voting via telephone for the first time in eleven seasons, with all voting limited to online. As Andrew dishes each week on the show and its contestants, readers can take part in the weekly polls and voice their own thoughts. Do you agree with him?

Before we lose two of them tonight, I thought I’d give you a run down of each contestant. Who has what it takes to win or at least crack the all-important Top 10 where they get to pair up with the uber-talented all-stars? CONTINUE READING…

sytycd top 16July 23, 2014: Sweet 16 Makes It Hard To Cut
The title of my recap for this week is slightly misleading. I personally think the judges were making it seem like the decision on who to cut from the Bottom 6 was a difficult one when really the decision America made was absolutely the right one. I’ll go on to talk about why after discussing… CONTINUE READING…

Oof. If you just finished watching the show like I did, you know that tonight’s cuts were not easy. Double eliminations, over the course of SYTYCD history have been known for being extra bad because, somehow, some really promising talent gets swept under the rug… CONTINUE READING…

August 6, 2014: With All-Stars, Come New Stars
After last week’s shocking elimination, I knew that the only thing that could make it right this week would be some stellar dancing. The night opened with an interesting “Neon Cowboy” routine (as Nigel dubbed it) set to the fresh-off-the-press Nicki Minaj… CONTINUE READING…

sytycdtop8August 14, 2014: Shaking the Top 8 Shocker
For as long as I’ve watched SYTYCD, I’ve had to brace myself for Top 8 week. It’s a time when half the remaining dancers are in danger and so, anything could happen. One routine that isn’t well-received could spell the end for an otherwise great dancer. CONTINUE READING…
