Join the Step Up Virtual Flash Mob

You guys: I am kind of crazy excited about Step Up Revolution. Trailers for the dance flick have been everywhere recently, and I freak out every time I see one.

If you're as obsessed as I am, check out this opportunity to get in on the Step Up action: The film is creating a "virtual flash mob" set to Timbaland's "Hands in the Air," which will ultimately become a new music video for the song. Participating is easy: Just make a video of yourself performing one of the four easy-to-learn routines below, upload it to YouTube or any other online video platform, and Tweet the link, including the hashtag #StepUpMob. The best clips will be included in the Timbaland video. And since you all are amazing dancers, I'm guessing you'll have a good shot at making the final cut.

The deadline for submissions is July 15, so start working on those moves ASAP—and catch Step Up Revolution in theaters beginning July 27!

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.
