Top Ten
  Kelly Bedard

This week’s episodes of So You Think You Can Dance have been incredibly bittersweet. Thursday’s episode finalized the top ten dancers, and in doing so two dancers were sent home. In the bottom six dancers included: Caitlin, Jason, Jeanine, Phillip, Melissa, and Ade. I was quite surprised to see Melissa and Ade in the bottom […]

The First Cut That Really Hurt
  Kelly Bedard

Tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance results show marked the first painful cut of the year. Sure I was sad to see Ashley go a couple weeks ago (she was too good to go out second) but no one I was really invested in bit the dust until tonight. I saw it coming. This […]

– Ryan Reynolds – Big Loveseason 3 (with special love for Amanda Seyfried and Chloe Sevigny) – Neurotic Reid, puppy dog Michael and magnetic Kiptyn on The Bachelorette – Blue Jays shortstop and leadoff batter Marco Scutaro – So You Think You Can Dance’s Kupono, Jason, Caitlin, Jeanine, Phillip and Evan – Gabby and Tom’s […]

To steal a line from the infamous Mary Murphy: “AHHHHHHHHHHHHH”!!! Last season saw some remarkable talent hit the So You Think You Can Dance stage. It boasted some of the most memorable routines of the series (“Bleeding Love”, the bed routine, “The Garden”), some great personalities (Twitch, Mark) and some impressive technique  (Katee, Josh, Chelsea). And […]

So You Think You Can Dance season 5 is off with a bang with returning favourites. In the grand tradition of Hok and Twitch (who made the top 20 as fan favourites after being cut the previous season), a favourite of mine from last season, Evan Kasprzak is back this year with his brother Ryan to […]

Fox Wants Everyone to Dance (and Sing) !
  Kelly Bedard

NEWS: Fox has made the (questionable) decision to air season 6 of beloved summer smash So You Think You Can Dance right after season 5 ends in the fall. The decision, no doubt, is their attempt to make their Idol-free fall months more Idol-audience friendly and put up a bit of a fight against the […]

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you already know about my love of all things So You Think You Can Dance. This past Friday that love doubled in size when I got to see the So You Think You Can Dance Canada concert from the very first row. The show was amazing- oodles […]

Happy Ending

After this week’s Privileged I’ve fallen in love with this song. Here to celebrate this love are Natalli and Vincent from So You Think You Can Dance Canada.

Nico Archambault and Natalli Reznik My 2 favourite So You Think You Can Dance Canada contestants. Both beautiful technicians with spunk, drive and lots of fire and heart. Nico I’ve loved since his very first audition. Natalli, on the other hand, was the surprise of the season for me. She was originally my least favourite […]

After an intense marathon of sitting and watching other people dance, I’m left just a week away from the finale of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, feeling shocked, disappointed, impressed and proud all at the same time. Sadly I will not be able to report on the finale until late December but I’ll […]

While back in Toronto this week I’ve been working on catching up on So You Think You Can Dance Canada. I’ve gotten through 2 more weeks, through the eliminations of Tamina and Joey, leaving 14 dancers on the stage. My current opinions are that… -I underestimated Natalli. Not only is she a better dancer than […]

I’m not very impressed with the world at this very moment. So, though I am slightly obsessed with Chuck Bass, Netflix and BU Shakespeare Society’s Twelfth Nightthis week, I will instead be handing down a list of complaints and grievances. So, my big objections of the moment are as follows: The People Who Run the […]

Yes I love So You Think You Can Dance Canada and I am partial to NBC’s new show My Own Worst Enemy and a big shout out to James Ehnes is required as his Tchaikovsky violin concerto with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra last Saturday made my month, but there is one winner for this week’s […]

So You Think You Can Dance… Canada
  Kelly Bedard

Just in case there was any confusion, I’m Canadian. But I go to school in the States. And I totally love So You Think You Can Dance (if you didn’t know that then you haven’t been paying any attention at all). Those 3 facts result in the following: I have an overwhelming need to watch […]

SYTYCD under the microscope
  Kelly Bedard

I’ve just watched the final 4 perform on this season of So You Think You Can Dance. After having had my friend in the States call in a few votes for Katee on my behalf, the only thing left to do is over analyze. So here I go… Firstly, let me say that the finale […]

Another late week for Obsessions
  Kelly Bedard

Fred Armisen on SNL. His Obama impression is dead on and his “political comedian” Nicholas Fehn is perhaps my favourite character on the show. SNL repeats- the perfect summer solution. Dominic Cooper. Not only is he the star of The History Boys (one of my all-time favourite movies) but with Mamma Mia, Dom Cooper proved […]

Dear America, …WTF!!!
  Kelly Bedard

So You Think You Can Dance results show, Thursday July 24. All I will say is 100% right on the girls (Comfort gone, Courtney in the bottom 2), 99.9% wrong on the guys. That .1% is for keeping Twitch but that in no way makes up for kicking off the best dancer on the show […]

SYTYCD Top 8: what show are the judges watching?

Don’t get me wrong, the show was great again this week. But is it just me or are the judges wrong a lot this year? I thought that disco routine (like almost all disco routines) was horrible and they praised the hell out of it. The lyrical hip hop was the first lyrical hip hop […]

I apologize for being late with this week’s installment of “obsessions” but I was incredibly sick yesterday. So here they are, a day late, my “obsessions of the week” Scott Foley: I’ve been re-watching season 1 of Felicity and simply can’t get over the incredible charm of this guy. Katee: I can’t recall any dancer […]

New Weekly Obsessions
  Kelly Bedard

Every Wednesday I bring you a list of my current obsessions. This week the winners are… Mia Michaels A long-time favourite of mine, So You Think You Can Dance choreographer and judge Mia Michaels can always be relied upon for fair, tough and constructive judicial comments, a quirky turn of phrase, unique fashion choices and […]

So You Think You Can Dance Week 4:farewell favourites

As the couples tackle 2 dances for the first time, Joshua and Katee stay close to the top of the pack, Jessica scoots buy once again on Will’s coattails, Twitch and Kherington finally prove that they truly deserve the popularity that their charisma has earned them, Courtney and Gev save themselves with incomparable solos and […]

Popular on DVD. This satire of high school soaps was a favourite of mine back when it originally aired and still manages to make me laugh, even now that I’m older and more cynical. Though Sam and Brooke drive me insane, Harrison and Carmen remain two of my all-time favourite television characters and Nicole Julian is one […]

The Dancing Finally Sways Me
  Kelly Bedard

I think this week’s episodes of So You Think You Can Dance deserve applause. After last week’s disappointing turn and the uninspiring auditions that proceeded it I was sure that this would be the year I didn’t care. I liked one couple (Twitch and Kherington) and admired one other (Joshua and Katee) but that was […]

The Dancing Finally Gets Going… slowly
  Kelly Bedard

I couldn’t have been more excited for the first week of the real competition on So You Think You Can Dance. There are only so many trannies with bad lipstick and “I pulled a muscle” sob stories you can watch before you’re aching for the top 20. I’ve been wishing for the start of the […]
