so you think you can dance, season 6!

I love the fact that I no longer have to wait until summertime for my favorite show in the history of ever... yup, So You Think You Can Dance is back for season six, its first fall season!

I'm really liking that they're changing things up a bit and making the first top 20 show a showcase of all the dancers, sans competition. The real competition will begin tomorrow night (Tuesday)... although I don't know how the first two weeks are going to go with the World Series being shown on Fox. Anyone have the scoop?

Overall I am not sure how I feel about this group; hopefully I'll warm up to them soon. Nathan, Russell and Mollee are standouts for me at the moment, but I'm still a little bummed that my favorite, Paula, didn't accept her spot in the top 20. I hope her movie career makes it worth it, because she was simply spectacular and I think could have easily won this season based on how amazing she was in Vegas.

What did you think of tonight's top 20 showcase? Any favorite routines or dancers thus far?

UPDATE: top 20 dancer Billy Bell has bowed out of the competition due to an undisclosed illness. Read more here.

PS - Since things tend to be a bit crazy for me this time of year, I won't be doing full SYTYCD performance recap posts each week, like I did last season; however, I will still post a few thoughts after each show with the hopes of inspiring some friendly discussion in the comments!


  1. I can't believe he had to quit. Poor guy! He was fantastic! I wonder what's wrong, sounds serious!

  2. Oh no! Billy Bell was one of my favorites from the start!
    Let's see... standouts for me (besides those you named) are Channing and Noelle - at least in their group dances I kept being drawn to them.
    I have to say that I really hope Russell makes it all the way - that guy is phenomenal!
