Well Hello There, @RickyUbedasLegs

We soooo needed this today:

There is now a Twitter account for "So You Think You Can Dance" champion Ricky Ubeda's legs.

It is called, fittingly, @RickyUbedasLegs. It is glorious.

As we saw in person at our shoot with Ricky, his legs are more than deserving of this honor. Seriously: You are going to die when you see him, and his leeeeegs, on our December cover. (If you don't subscribe, sign up now to make sure that issue lands in your mailbox. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE, GUYS.)

Here's a little preview from our shoot. His legs are looking all moody-hot here:

By the way: There are also accounts dedicated to the fine booties of both Teddy Coffey and Rudy Abreu.

You're welcome.

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.
