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.
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? Frequentauditionee 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.

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
When it comes to injury-prone body parts, knees reign supreme for dancers. But a little strengthening can go a long way in preventing painful outcomes. We turned to Dirk Hartog, a physical therapist with Westside Dance Physical Therapy in NYC, for three exercises that'll support and stabilize your knees.
