'So You Think You Can Dance': Favorite audition?

The So You Think You Can Dance auditions hit Salt Lake City this week, and guest judge Adam Shankman could not stop swearing. “Shut the f— up, you are amazing,” he screamed at the very first contestant after she had not said anything. Mary Murphy brought back the Hot Tamale Train for the first time in season 9, and Nigel Lythgoe informed a young man he “could have someone’s eye out with those nipples.” Just another day in the ballroom!

Who was your favorite dancer tonight? Mine was Amanda Bynes (pictured). Just kidding, that’s Deanna “Dee” Tomasetta, the lovechild of Amanda Bynes and Sarah Chalke. And she wasn’t quite my number one…. READ FULL STORY

Debbie Allen vs. J. Lo: Who wore an 'I wholeheartedly approve of you' stankface better?

It’s our first-ever Reality TV GIF Battle! I’m pretty psyched.

On tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance auditions in Atlanta, guest judge Debbie Allen rivaled American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez in terms of wearing an “I wholeheartedly approve of what is happening onstage” stankface complete with dramatic head-jerks and an overwhelming sense of “bringing it.”

So who wore it better? Vote for your favorite dancing diva below…. READ FULL STORY

Which shows are 'exploding' in social media? Do you 'explode' onto social media while you watch TV?

I hope you’re not hurting yourself! A new study (DON’T FALL ASLEEP) suggests that social activity surrounding broadcast prime-time this April topped its level a year earlier by 194 percent. That means a whole lotta people were heading over to The Voice‘s “Sprint Lounge with Christina Milian” instead of heading over to the fridge for a snack.

You can read more about the numbers here, but I’m interested in reactions from those of you who never use social media at all. READ FULL STORY

'So You Think You Can Dance': Can Jesse Tyler Ferguson please be the permanent third judge?

I know he’s busy (or busy relaxing) and probably can’t. But he’s so wonderful! The Modern Family actor, who’d guest-judged last season to rave reviews, took a seat beside Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe to charm us again on tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance.

He’s not well-versed in dancing, but TV’s Mitchell Pritchett had tons of commentary regarding pure performance value — which is really at least half the battle on any televised competition. Ferguson (it feels weird to call him that) remarked on martial arts master Cole Horibe’s “intense and amazing” eyes and “major presence,” noticed Sam Lenarz’s “simmering sadness that came from underneath you in a beautiful way,” and even compared Cirque du Soleil dancer Eliana Girard to season 8 winner Melanie Moore — “she could draw you in just by being.” READ FULL STORY

With the new 'X Factor' panel in place, will Demi and Britney be the must-watch judges on TV? -- POLL

Demi Lovato must be in la la land now that she and Britney Spears have joined the X Factor circus as judges for next season. The new stars will join music industry veterans L.A. Reid and Simon Cowell on the panel for the show’s second season, but are they shaping up to be the hottest crew to give their critiques on TV? Simon seems smitten with the pair of pop princesses, tweeting: “Can’t believe it’s finally happened. Very exciting! @thexfactorusa #xfactor #SimonBritneyDemiLa.”

Will Howard Stern give Simon a run for his money on FCC-friendly insults when he starts judging America’s Got Talent? And will Britney edge out Jennifer Lopez with saccharin-sweet compliments, or will her wild side get the best of her? Take our poll and let us know who’s the fairest judging panel of them all!

'So You Think You Can Dance' axes results show. It's time other shows follow suit.

Producer Nigel Lythgoe dropped a bomb on So You Think You Can Dance fans in this New Year by announcing last night via Twitter that Fox has cancelled the dance competition’s results show.

#FOX have [sic] cancelled the results show so I will have to change the format of #SYTYCD. At least we have another season at the end of MAY,” he said via Twitter, adding later, “I’m certainly not mad at FOX they have supported #SYTYCD FOR 9 seasons. With the help of [Fox president of alternative entertainment] Mike Darnell I think we have some great new ideas.”

Be sure to watch tonight’s X Factor results show in front of your computer, because I’ll be co-hosting EW.com’s live chat with Fox-y fave Mary Murphy — of So You Think You Can Dance judging (and EW.com blogging) fame!

You know you’ve been wondering which “acts” she’d put on the Hot Tamale Train. All will be revealed at 8 p.m. ET.

Mary Murphy on 'SYTYCD': An uneven finale, a fabulous season

Nigel not happy with the finale, drops jaws of all the judges!

Yes, last night was a roller coaster ride with some great highlights and perhaps the lowest low I’ve seen on the show in a long time. What initially put some of us into a finale funk was the disco that started the show. It felt flat, labored, and even though it was danced by two of the most solid performers, Marko and Melanie, they were not able to connect to the style. My heart slightly dropped for both of them.

Fortunately, Sonya Tayeh’s jazz piece starring Sasha and Mark Kanemura brought us straight back up. This piece had all the dynamics and passion that we have come to know in our finales. READ FULL STORY
