JigTV interviews Brian Friedman. He has TV projects in the works and gives some music recommendations.

Besides Will Wingfield, does Mia Michaels have anything nice to say about anybody lately? The Star-Telegram asked her about Joshua Allen:

"I'm going to say, because I got to work
with him a couple weeks ago, he's not that trained," Michaels said in response to a question about whether Allen has hidden his talent from other genres. "He's not that trained. He's a good faker. He's had some training, but not extensive. No. He's pretty raw."

More... Alert! The article contains one dance spoiler for this week.

Here, she's asked about why there are so many Utahns on dance TV:
"Because they have no social life," says So You Think You Can Dance judge and choreographer Mia Michaels. It's the Mormon thing: No sex, drugs, drinking. So dancing becomes a great outlet."


Michael Jensen at AfterElton cornered Nigel on his issues with gay men and effeminate male dancers:
AE: Why don’t you like the effeminate [dancers]?

NL: Because they need to be very strong. Dancing is role-playing most of the time. And you need to be strong and lift girls. You need to look stronger than the girl you’re dancing with. You control the dance, especially in ballroom. So if you mince about the stage, you’re not doing what the choreographer is asking you to do. He’s asking you to be strong. If your choreographer then wants to do an effeminate routine, then that’s fine, but most of the time we don’t do effeminate routines so straight or gay doesn’t come into it for me.
