Nigel Lythgoe is one of the producers on both shows, but he has resigned from AI. SYTYCD is in its fifth season and is so popular that Fox has put it in their Fall lineup.cheerio said:This is just like American Idol, just another spin off
I missed the first season. I watched as much as was available on youtube. I couldn't understand why Blake was eliminated. But then I couldn't understand why Allison was eliminated in Season 2. Melody was awesome. I honestly thought she was better than Nick, but then it's America's favorite dancer, not the best.kari said:Yay!! I love SYTYCD - I've watched it every season. Thanks Angela!!
Oh yeah, the Will Agenda - I had nearly forgotten. I was so happy Joshua won last year!!Gertie Kindle 'Turn to Page 390' said:Looks like Brandon Bryant is back to try out this year. Now that we don't have the Will Agenda going on, he has a better chance of making the Top 20.
I also hear that Natalie Reid is coming back for another try.
Joshua deserved the win. I can't believe Twitch beat out Katee. He shouldn't have even been in the finals. Mark should have been there. Did you see the opening? They show a few seconds of Marksie doing Bleeding Love. I get all choked up every time I watch that one. No Air with Katee and Joshua gets me, too.kari said:Oh yeah, the Will Agenda - I had nearly forgotten. I was so happy Joshua won last year!!
This is just the auditions. No one really outstanding, yet. Wait until you see Brandon Bryant. He is a fabulous contemporary dancer. I'm sure I saw him in one of the snippets. Of course, it depends on what you like.Betsy the Quilter said:I've never watched it, watching it this evening but I don't know if I'll be hooked...
Yes, he was good. Some of these people who do well, don't make it past Vegas. It's a meat grinder.Betsy the Quilter said:umbrella guy was interesting...
Gotta have someone for Nigel to insult.Betsy the Quilter said:OK, cat girl/light saber girl needs to try out for American Idol next...
More auditions in four more cities. Then we see what goes on in Vegas. After that, they pick 10 guys and 10 gals to be on the show. Four to six of those 20 are usually cannon fodder.Betsy the Quilter said:OK, so some people go straight through to Vegas, but others have to go to choreography? What happens next?
If the judges think the dancer is really GOOD, they give them a ticket to Vegas and they get to skip the choreography round. If the judges aren't sure about the dancer's ability or aren't sure if they can do other styles they send the dancer to the choreography round. This lets the judges have another look at them and then the judges can decide if they are good enough to go to Vegas. Did that explain it?Betsy the Quilter said:I still don't understand...it looked like some people got tickets right away, and some were sent to "choreography?"
