So You Think You Can Dance News Roundup

Mega-bestselling novelist Orson Scott Card judges reality TV judges and hosts in the second half of Uncle Orson Reviews Everything at Rhino Times. It's pretty clear he's a fan of our favorite show.

What I love about the So You Think You Can Dance format is that the third judge position cycles among various choreographers – these judges actually get in the room with the dancers and put their own talent on the line. And when they critique, they know these dancers from having worked with them.

My favorite of the choreographer-judges is Mia Michaels. At first I thought she was needlessly cruel sometimes, but no – she is passionate and heartfelt. When she is harsh, it's because she's angry – and usually she's right to be angry. It's never for effect.

It's interesting, the range of reactions to Jason "Betty Wallace" Looney's "audition" at Queerty. And what kind of drag name is Betty Wallace anyway? I doubt Regime Dettol would approve.

I bookmarked this, a glossary of dance styles at The Phrontistery.
