Anyway, before the 200th episode taped, Nigel Lythgoe, the staff of "SYTYCD," and totally adorkable guest judge Zooey Deschanel rolled out a ceremonial cake for the occasion. Of course, none of the actual top 20 dancers, all of whom looked like they'd been thriving on a diet of nothing but organic kale and Simon Cowell's special quail-egg vitamin smoothies all their lives, ate a single fluffy, frosted bite. But of course, the moment was still very, very sweet.
And the "So You Think You Can Dance" celebration didn't end there: This week, Fox also released a "200 Moves in 200 Seconds" video reel packed with some of the past eight seasons' most memorable mini-moments, and seriously, I feel like I burned off a cake's worth of calories just watching it. And now I can't wait to see what moves the Season 9 (and Season 10, and Season 11, and so on) dancers and choreographers come up with next. Viva "SYTYCD"!
