  1. I am SUPER excited about Allison!!!!!!!! Now if only Ivan would also come back and I could see them dance together, that would be pretty darn awesome.

  2. Sounds like a good group! Twitch is one of my all-time faves. I love Courtney & Allison. Lauren’s personality totally turns me off – but she’s a good dancer. So, as long as she doesn’t talk too much, I’m good with her. And, I’ll never mind Ade’s chiseled physiche on my tv.

  3. It’s a good group so far but I think a lot of people are going to be disapointed since all the very popular contemporary guys (Travis, Danny and Jakob) are not going to be in it.

  4. Maybe they are going to announce later that the good guys are in?
    Twitch and Ade are fine but can’t begin to compare with Danny,
    Travis and Jakob

  5. It’s a good group so far but I think a lot of people are going to be disapointed since all the very popular contemporary guys (Travis, Danny and Jakob) are not going to be in it.

    I’m assuming Travis will continue to choreograph. I have no doubt he could have had one of those all star spots if he wanted it. I think Danny has kept himself pretty busy – so who knows if he was asked. (Danny is my number one favorite dancer ever from this show, so I’d love to have him back).

    Plus – I’m assuming there are still more names to come, as I don’t see any partners on this list that will fill the male contemporary or ballroom dancer slots. I’m guessing both of those specialties will be represented by some old fan favorites.

    I wonder if Pasha will be one? Or, if he’ll continue to do choreography as well. They don’t have any female ballroom specialists listed yet either.

    If Nigel wants them to continue to do each of those styles, he’s going to have to provide all stars to cover them. I imagine this list will grow quite a bit.

  6. Oh well, all my favorite alumni are..Danny, Heidi G, Blake,Mark K,Travis,Melody, Nick, Dmitry. Are they all working???

  7. Nigel has also announced via Twitter (after his Paula & Simon April Fools tweets) that Pasha Kovalev, from Season 3, will represent for Standard & Latin Ballroom. Yay!! I love Pasha!

  8. Well Ade was my pick to win his season so YAY for more Ade, but even so he’d be like seventh on my list of contemporary guys after Mark, Jakob, Travis, Danny, Neil and Blake. Same with Pasha for ballroom- like him, but not as much as Dmitry or Artem. Dayum, this cast of all stars is looking sadder all the time. :( No thanks, Nigel. If you can’t get ANY of my top tier favorites, then bring back the partnerships.

  9. I was not happy about the changes, but that completely changes with Kathryn back! Now if only Melissa could represent Ballad lol!

  10. Love, love, love Allison and look forward to seeing her and the new format.

  11. Well Ade was my pick to win his season so YAY for more Ade, but even so he’d be like seventh on my list of contemporary guys after Mark, Jakob, Travis, Danny, Neil and Blake. Same with Pasha for ballroom- like him, but not as much as Dmitry or Artem. Dayum, this cast of all stars is looking sadder all the time. :( No thanks, Nigel. If you can’t get ANY of my top tier favorites, then bring back the partnerships.

    But Ade to me was a much stronger PARTNER. He wasn’t a better dancer, but the ones you named always stole the show, they were so flashy. Ade will provide a steady reliable partner without taking too much shine away from the contestants.

  12. If I was a girl competing on this show, I’d want them to bring back Ryan from last season. I think he’s the strongest partner I’ve ever seen on this show. They’d be lucky to pull his name out of the hat.

    ETA: Excellent point gangreen29. If Danny was your all-star partner, who the hell would be watching you?

    Can I just get some Jeanette? That’s all I want.

  13. Yay more Kathryn! Ade would be great, but I’d love to see Jakob, Jason, Janette and Katie back on SYTYCD too.

  14. But Ade to me was a much stronger PARTNER. He wasn’t a better dancer, but the ones you named always stole the show, they were so flashy. Ade will provide a steady reliable partner without taking too much shine away from the contestants.

    Outside of maybe complicated lifts, Mark and Jakob were both better partners than Ade, though. Jakob never had a weak pairing and was lauded for his giving partnerships by the judges. His partners ALWAYS shined. And Mark could nail the character of just about any dance thrown at him from ballroom to contemp to jazz to hip hop and was a strong partner to three different females in Chelsea, Comfort, and Courtney. As for D Tids being too “jazzy”, well, I’d be impressed with any partner who could keep up with him. Anyway, if this is about partnering, then I’d rather go back to the old format because it’s a lot more interesting to see how the contestants partner each other and develop the necessary chemistry. For me for you, the all star angle is ONLY fun if I’m excited about the actual list of All Stars, and so far, meh, I’m not liking the idea.

    And also Lauren was a piss poor partner but a Nigel favorite, and there she is in the all star cast, so I don’t know that I buy the picking the best parnter angle.

  15. Where is Will? Maybe he’s getting a lot of work. I think he was the best dancer throughout all the seasons. I would like to see Ellenore, while Kathryn was technically good, Ellenore added that excitement element and she seemed to make all of her partners better.

  16. Ah, Pasha, there you are, finally! Yay!

    I normally don’t actively dislike dancers, but I make an exception for Lauren. Why are they so enamored with her?

  17. Ayy. None of my favorites are on that list… how many all-stars will there be in total?

  18. … he’d be like seventh on my list of contemporary guys after Mark, Jakob, Travis, Danny, Neil and Blake. Same with Pasha for ballroom- like him, but not as much as Dmitry or Artem. Dayum, this cast of all stars is looking sadder all the time. :( No thanks, Nigel. If you can’t get ANY of my top tier favorites, then bring back the partnerships.

    You’re almost channeling me today. :) I’d add Brandon and Will above Ade too. ITA with you on the Artem and Dmitry > Pasha. I liked Pasha but I loved Artem and Dmitry.

  19. I am stoked about Pasha, he is my absolute favorite male ballroom dancer on the show.

    he’d be like seventh on my list of contemporary guys after Mark, Jakob, Travis, Danny, Neil and Blake.

    Blake already tweeted that he was not going to be on the show and Travis was asked to choreograph.
    Of the rest you mentioned, Mark was touring with Gaga (not sure if he still is) Danny, Jakob and Neil are all working in New York and I am not sure they will accept going back to SYTYCD.

  20. ^ Yeah, well, exactly. I originally said I was withholding judgement on the All Star idea until I heard the list of All Stars. And, so far, not feeling it. If they can’t nab a really impressive All Star lineup for whatever reason, I’d rather they kept up the old partnering arrangement with the current season’s dancers partnering each other.

  21. Pasha is my favorite contestant from that show EVER. They got me interested now. :)

  22. I normally don’t actively dislike dancers, but I make an exception for Lauren. Why are they so enamored with her?

    My theory is that she knows where someone buried something.
