UPDATE: Spoilers from SYTYCDism–a list of dancers who are part of the all stars. Apparently, Nigel isn’t picking past winners for the team.
Lauren Gottlieb (S3) – Lyrical Hip Hop? Jazz?
Courtney Galiano (S4) – Jazz?
Allison Holker (S2) – Contemporary
I love Courtney!
So You Think You Can Dance executive producer, Nigel Lythgoe, announced the first of the 10 member all-star team for SYTYCD Season 7.
Contestants will be paired with alums who will mentor them in their style of dance, and then perform with them in competition. The pairs will change each week.
@dizzyfeet tweeted: I am thrilled that representing the various dance genres of Popping, Locking, Krump etc in the All-Stars Dance-Pool from Season 4 is TWITCH
Twitch, a very popular Season 4 contestant, is a no-brainer.
Also, the realityblurred blog reports that the judges will have more power this season, picking which dancer goes home from a fan-voted bottom 3 all the way to the finale. Hm. Not sure I like that at all. I guess Nigel is sick of losing his favorites *coughkaylacough*
Mary Murphy will be choreographing this year, as she rotates through the judges panel. Ditto Mia Michaels. Read more HERE.
