Pretty much every class at L.A.'s Millennium Dance Complex features a combo set to a serious banger of a song. But not every class brings in the ACTUAL POP STAR BEHIND THE SONG to watch dancers take on that combo.
A few days ago, Demi Lovato dropped by Jojo Gomez's class at Millennium to see what Gomez had made of her hit "Sorry Not Sorry." Gomez's 🔥 choreo—and the incredible performances by some of Hollywood's best dancers/most devoted Lovatics, including Kaycee Rice—didn't disappoint.
Um, how fantastic was last night's ep of "So You Think You Can Dance"? As if the performances by this season's fabulous Top 10 and their All Star partners weren't enough to send us to dance heaven, we were also treated to a guest performance by the Lethal Ladies step team from the crazy-fierce documentary STEP. And as if that guest performance wasn't enough to get us to dance nirvana, the Ladies were also joined onstage by the All Stars themselves:
We'd have to take it back to the days of *NSYNC to find a boy band with the dance skills to match their hit single, but all of that is about to change (finally!): Meet PRETTYMUCH. The five-guy group is made up of Brandon Arreaga, Austin Porter, Edwin Honoret, Zion Kuwonu, and Nick Mara, and following them on social media has shown they're bringing back boy-band dancing—and quite possibly better than ever before. With their catchy first single "Would You Mind" reaching the top 10 on Spotify's Viral 50, they're set to make their official performance debut on the Teen Choice Awards stage, August 13th.
Congrats to this year's Outstanding Choreography Emmy nominees, announced yesterday morning in Hollywood! It's a pretty stellar list of names, with "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing with the Stars" choreographers earning four of the category's five slots. (Rockstar Mandy Moore was actually nominated for her work on both shows. 🙌 )
Any time Mandy Moore does anything, anywhere, it's bound to be amazing. (I mean, La La Land? "SYTYCD"? You get the picture.) So as very active members of the Mandy Moore fan club, we were beyond excited that she was a guest judge on "Dancing with the Stars" last night—and on "Movie Night," no less. But we digress. There's a lot of dancing to cover (and two eliminations!), so let's get into it.
