I love shows like So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars so much.  Why?  Because it gives professional, amateur and celebrity (sometimes non-dancers) a chance to dance and shine with the best choreographers and dancers in the country.

When I watch both shows, I know in advance that I am watching and waiting for my favorite dancers and choreographers to shine.  On Dancing with the Stars I know that anything “touched” by Louie Van Amstel, Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Chelsie Hightower, Mark Ballas and Lacey Schwimmer is going to please and entertain me, regardless of their partners.

And on So You Think You Can Dance, my favorite choreographers are Doriana Sanchez, Napoleon & Tabitha  AKA NappyTaps,  Sonya Tayeh, Tony Meredith & Melanie LaPatin and Nakul Dev Mahajan.  I am usually ALWAYS going to love their choreography, unless the dancer really, really screw it up.  Some other choreographers that I enjoy on the show are Travis Wall, Tyce Diorio, Mandy Moore &  Nigel Lythgoe.  Wait, what – Nigel Lythgoe???  Nigel is brilliant when he choreographs and performs Tap Dance!!!  Tyce “stopusingthesamestepsandmakingtheBroadwaydanceslookjustlikeBobFossechoreographies” Tyson!

I am so glad that SYTYCD makes Disco and Bollywood Dance available for the masses and allows these unique dance forms on the show.  I hope they add Belly Dance to show show one day, Nigel – hint, hint!

I was SHOCKED when I watched an episode of SYTYCD last July when Lady Gaga was a guest Judge.  Boy, she really did not like Napoleon & Tabitha (NappyTaps)!  She was hating on them and talking trash.  I wonder why?  But more importantly that was not the time and place to air any personal grudges.  I thought it was very unprofessional and as an audience member, I felt very uncomfortable when she starting her negative comments.

What did they do to piss off Lady Gaga?  And why is she hating on NappyTaps? Does anyone know?

By the way, I love the new show Mobbed, featuring choreography by the darling and talented dance duo NappyTabs, be sure to catch it this week on FOX.
