News Update

LA Times Show Tracker covered the conference calls with Comfort Fedoke and Will Wingfield.

The Sydney Morning Herald adds some depth to our understanding of Nigel Lythgoe:

"Since I've been [in America] I've had a heart attack, I've lost the back of my heart, I've had peritonitis, I've lost 15 feet [4.6metres] of my intestine, my marriage has broken up and I've lost my wife," he says. "And the gag now is, I miss my intestine." (Jokes aside, he says he is on good terms with estranged wife Bonnie and thinks she did an excellent job as a judge on the Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance.)


Scott Patrick Wagner wonders about the door slam sounds in Katee & Twitch's contemporary routine:
I had only heard the song used, “Mercy” by Duffy, in passing, and wasn’t familiar with the strong “slamming” percussive that ended those phrases. But I imagined that Mia let her imagination run wild with them, and they were perhaps the inspiration for the number. (Most of my own choreography has been to prerecorded pop music, and the arrangement can become a jumping-off point, if not a roadmap.)

I’ve had a chance to listen to the whole tune, and –somebody please correct me immediately if I’m wrong — but those door-slam percussives aren’t actually IN the song, at least not as it was recorded and released by the artist. To me, that just opens up a big ol’ can of worms. It has gone from feeling like inventiveness and resourcefulness to being, frankly, a cheat.
