7 of the Funniest Moments from "So You Think You Can Dance"

Although we watch "So You Think You Can Dance" for the killer choreography and fantabulous dancing, sometimes the show is downright hilarious, too. Here are seven laugh-out-loud "SYT" moments that still have us giggling.


Ellen's Epic Guest Performance with tWitch

Alex Wong getting injured? Not funny. Ellen Degeneres replacing Alex in a redo of his showstopping "Outta Your Mind" hip-hop routine with tWitch? THE FUNNIEST. (And hey, Ellen has some moves.)

Travis Wall's Performance of "It's Raining Men"

Travis Wall snatched our wigs with this little number, dressing in disguise as a "mystery" auditionee and strutting to "It's Raining Men" for the judges. The only thing that could've made it better is if his heels were about three inches higher. Werk!

JT Church's Election Speech

JT Church instantly won us over during Season 13 when he gave his "election speech," which left us in tears of hilarity. JT for President!

The Ballroom Dancers Who Couldn't Stop Winking/Hiccuping

Is there anything better than Mary Murphy's laugh? When ballroom couple Dia and Kurt auditioned, they winked and hiccuped nonstop, causing the judges—especially Mary—to absolutely lose it.

Everything the Ninja Twins Said

This duo's interview before their Season 9 audition was hysterical. Here's one quote that perfectly sums them up: "We're like the Paris Hilton and he's like the Nicole Richie, but we're broke. We live like that A-List celebrity on that B-List budget."

Kristin Chenoweth's Run as a Guest Judge

The show's 15 seasons have seen lot of guest judges come and go, but few have been as hilarious as Kristin Chenoweth. This compilation video of her best moments will have you crying laughing. (Coming in a close second in the guest judge race? Frequent auditionee Jesse Tyler Ferguson.)

Cat Deeley Just Being Cat Deeley, All the Time

"SYTYCD" wouldn't be the same without host Cat Deeley, who's consistently the funniest person onstage. It's impossible to pick one favorite Cat moment, but this short roundup of moments from Season 3 perfectly showcases her infectious personality.

Here's Why Jordan Fisher Thinks You Should Be Excited for Netflix's New Dance Film, "Work It"

If you're looking for a sign that 2020 might *just* be turning around, look no further than Netflix's new dance-centric film Work It. The movie comes out this Friday, August 7, and the hype is real. ICYMI, the film follows high school senior Quinn Ackerman, played by none other than Sabrina Carpenter, as she attempts to lead her dance team to a competition win in order to bolster her chances of being admitted to the college of her dreams. One small challenge: Quinn isn't a dancer.

Enter Jordan Fisher as Jake Taylor, a talented-but-troubled choreographer and dancer, to help Quinn lead the team. We had the chance to speak with Fisher about his experience on set, and why Work It just might be the dance movie we've all been waiting for.
