Breaking Down ‘Breaking Brooklyn’ with Paul Becker

Up until now, Paul Becker has been known as a dancer and choreographer; protégé to Kenny Ortega, who worked closely with the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cher, and Elton John. But Becker’s credits are impressive in their own right, ranging from films like Twilight, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and Disney’s The Descendants; in […]

Why Mermaids Are ‘Real’ with Mako Mermaids Star Allie Bertram

As much as we’d all like to believe that one day we’ll get that letter from Hogwarts or that we too could join Frodo on his quest, we recognize that fantasy is just that: fantasy, but for Canadian actress Allie Bertram, the fantasy blends into reality as she takes on her role as Mimmi, one […]

SYTYCD12: The Winner Is Revealed

After we found out Season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance would be a radical change to the format of the show as we knew it, it was hard to know what to expect. How would this season’s “Team Stage” and “Team Street” stack up in comparison to the previous eleven seasons, where the contestants […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 4 Try To Win It All

Tonight we saw the remaining four contestants battle it out without the stress of imminent eliminations on their mind. They’ll have to wait a week to find out who will be crowned America’s Favorite Dancer, but before that we got to see them all dance together and with another all-star to try to prove that […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 6 Fight for the Finale

As Cat Deeley reminded us at the top of the show, tonight would be the night where she reveals the Top 4. Those results, however, would have to wait until the end of the show, which meant each member of the remaining six would have to dance their hardest since their votes tonight would count […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 8 Hope to Be Great

It’s hard to believe that just over a month ago was the first time the Top 20 took the stage and now, we’re staring down the barrel of the finale with only six contestants left after tonight. But even the harshest critics of the show’s new Stage vs. Street format have to agree that the […]

Carly Rae Jepsen Shows ‘Emotion’ on Her New Album

Back in the summer of 2012, Canadian pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen rose to stardom after Justin Bieber tweeted about her uber-catchy hit single, “Call Me Maybe.” Jepsen was subsequently signed to the same label as Bieber, Schoolboy Records, and released an album (called Kiss) later that year. This summer, she’s back and making waves […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 10 Join Forces With The All-Stars

Despite some great routines up to this point, I think it’s safe to say that most SYTYCD fans wait for the night where the show’s best alumni, the “all-stars”, join the ten remaining contestants for some routines that are just that much better for the involvement of a pro and we definitely had a few of those […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 14 Dance Again and the Top 10 is Revealed!

Last week, our consummate host Cat Deeley spilled the unfortunate beans that we’d be losing four members of our talented Top 14 and with the deck so stack, especially on the Street side of things (at least, in my opinion), I knew we’d likely lose at least one dancer before their time tonight, but before we […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 16 Deliver Some Sweetness

Perhaps executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe heard the cries of fans for more pairs routines, as they’ve produced some of the season’s most memorable moments thus far, or maybe it was always in the plans, but last night’s show was arguably the season’s best yet as some of the night’s duos had some tricks up […]

SYTYCD12: The Top 18 Get Mixed and Matched

After we said goodbye to waacker Lily and ballet dancer Darion last Monday night, the remaining 18 contestants got to work on their new routines. Unlike seasons past, they wouldn’t be dancing with the same partners every week and so, this week, we saw new configurations and new styles that gave some dancers a chance […]

SYTYCD12: Top 20 Take on New Styles for the First Time

Tonight the Top 10 “Stage” and Top 10 “Street” dancers were put to the test as the teams were mixed and matched and some dancers were forced to dance genres they’ve never seen before. Some rose to the occasion and others, as Nigel put it, turned into “yogurt”. After each routine, the unflappable Cat Deeley […]

SYTYCD12: Top 20 Take the Stage (and Street) for the First Time

On Monday night, the 10 “Stage” dancers and 10 “Street” dancers that comprised mentors Travis and Twitch’s teams took to the stage for the first time in their own styles. The two hour showcase gave viewers a point of comparison to make snap judgments about their favorites before taking to phones and facebook to cast […]
