"So You Think You Can Dance" is back for a seventh season starting Thursday, May 27, with several format changes...the most exciting of which is that the finalists, instead of being paired up with each other, will be partnered, "Dancing With The Stars"-style, with 12 allstar contestants from past seasons. This should make for the greatest "SYTYCD" season yet.
I recently attended a Season 7 press junket at L.A.'s Smashbox Studios with the "SYTYCD" cast, where I totally geeked out when I ran into Mark Kanemura in the catering line and couldn't resist interrupting his lunch to babble to him about how he's my favorite "SYTYCD" contestant evereverever
Anyway, later I got to speak with Mark more seriously about what's he's been doing since leaving the show (Lady Gaga tour, Janet Jackson video), and I also chatted with Twitch, Quest Crew's Dominic Sandoval, Allison Holker, Courtney Galliano (who had some interesting stuff to say about her night dancing backup for Adam Lambert at the AMAs), and Neil Haskell about their triumphant return to the "SYTYCD" stage.
The Season 7 contestants are really going to have their work cut out for them holding their own against these shining "SYTYCD" stars:
