    No, but my husband was in the Fox Theatre planning a photo shoot with Alvin Ailey when SYTYCD was filming in Atlanta. He said they were rehearsing the "spontaneous" things a lot. He watched them "interviewing" and filming kids meant to be off the cuff, but they of course rehearsed and shot it many times. He was there among them for several hours. He said it was very planned and scripted. But we all knew that, right? He loved it! He can't wait for it to start. Probably no one cares anyway if it isn't "real."

    Not sure I want to watch this year, but of course I probably will.

    SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE soars into its 11th season this May with a two-hour premiere event showcasing America's most talented dancers during the audition rounds, beginning Wednesday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Hosted by Cat Deeley and featuring resident judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, as well as guest judges, including Jenna Dewan-Tatum (Atlanta), Billy Porter and Misty Copeland (Philadelphia), Wayne Brady (New Orleans), Jenna Elfman and Fabrice Calmels (Chicago) and Christina Applegate (Los Angeles). The new season of the Emmy Award-nominated hit dance competition series once again will include awe-inspiring performances, as well as nail-biting eliminations, as the contestants compete to be named America's Favorite Dancer.

    In Season 11, producers travel across the country in search of dancers who represent the best America has to offer. Callbacks are held in Los Angeles, where the dancers work with top choreographers to learn routines that they will perform for judges Lythgoe and Murphy, and guest judges Adam Shankman, Tara Lipinski, Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Irina Dvorovenko. Once the judges pick the Top 20 dancers, they turn it over to America. Each week, the dancers will be paired up to perform inspired pieces choreographed by some of the biggest names in the business. The following week, one male and one female dancer will be eliminated from the competition.
    "Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden

    Oh, Fabrice!!! I hate the auditions usually but now I have to watch....... Fabrice! He's an unbelievably hot ballet dancer with the Joffrey. And I'm very glad Irina is getting to be a guest judge. She's doing Starz "Flesh & Bone" series filming now. How fun, Copeland & Billy Porter - awesome!

    Ugh. Justin Bieber. Why do they have to mess around with something that already works and why have this little twit on a dance show?

    Reputation rehab? Nothing on TV is as clean as SYTYCD. Nigel might have gotten him for free.

    or this one dying

    and then someone i have never seen will end up making the cut because we made time for all this
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Not bad so far- loved Megan (the trailer park girl).
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    Haven't watched yet, but isn't there always a trailer park girl named Megan?

    It turns out that she's not -- and she was very good, not like she should be dancing in a gentlemen's club -- so she didn't fit the cliche.

    wow!

    Actually, I watched all but the last 10 minutes tonight and don't remember her at all, so maybe not wow? I was largely bored tonight. Really enjoyed a few ballroom dancers. Felt terrible for the guy from last year whose dad passed away, but the extended drama was ridiculous. Nice kid, agreed with him not being sent on after doing choreo, had a sinking feeling when he showed up again, ignored his second dance when he said he had come back with a dance all about his grieving. I mean, +3 GOE for figuring out what rings Nigel's bell, but I don't even know if he was given a ticket to Vegas (I know they're in LA this time, but to me it's always a ticket to Vegas...)

    The chick with the 11 siblings ... the way Nigel was talking to her about her dad "providing services" to her mother I couldn't help but see it thrugh the lens of a very young adult applying for a job, and the hiring manager making lewd comments about her parents' sex lives. WTF.

    Did the dishes during the Biebs part. I liked America's Best Dance Crew a ton but I don't have any interest in bringing that into SYTYCD. It's bad enough they have split the win into "Favorite Guy" and "Favorite Girl" instead of just having a winner.

    Turned the tv off when Mary and Dharma got lapdances.

    It's as if Nigel can't decide who is watching. Last night was for dance grammas and dance dads. Tweet @dizzyfeet if you're disappointed.
