So You Think You Can Dance

Rhys Bobridge, last seen dancing up a storm in the So You Think You Can Dance finale, is launching a music career. You can listen to his debut single ‘Hot Summer’ in all its craptacular glory here.

Cute! Australian Idol‘s Wes and So You Think You Can Dance‘s Rhys were childhood co-stars in their Johnny Young Talent School days:

Perhaps this is the true Idol scandal of 2009: Ten is planting gifted kids in talent schools, then harvesting them years later to star in their reality shows! You heard it here first…

So you think you can have a solo music career [news]

So You Think You Can Dance host Natalie Bassingth… Bassingthwai… Bassingwhatever has quit the Rogue Traders to give herself more time to build her career. Interestingly, News.com.au’s report says that she’ll “juggle recordings for her first solo album with the second series of Dance later this year“. Hmmm.

Seven’s loser plan to poach Ramsay [WTF?]

Posted in Australiana, Nine, Seven, So You Think You Can Dance, WTF? on May 7, 2008 by jetsamjr

Yet more evidence that the suits who run Tv networks are total boneheads: Producers of Seven’s Dancing with the Stars reportedly approached Nine’s TV chef Gordon Ramsay about appearing on the next season of the tediously creaky dance-off.

Firstly, this reeks of a last-ditch attempt by the Seven Network to exploit Nine’s unexpected ratings success with Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. Secondly… as if Gordon Ramsay, who rakes in squillions every time he stars in one of his own shoes, is going to appear on the pokey Aussie version of Dancing with the Stars!

Seven is clearly a little desperate to rescuscitate Dancing: in addiction to sucking up to Ramsay, they’re reportedly “making moves” to include the So You Think You Can Dance finalists in the next season. Ugh – the whole thing is reminiscent of a high-school loser trying to convince the cool kids to come to her birthday party.

Audiences savaged poor Natalie Bassingthwaighte when she first stepped up as host of So You Think You Can Dance, but the actress-turned-singer-turned-reality TV MC has promised to return to the series in ’09 no matter how busy she is:

“If the show goes ahead, which it should given its success, I’ll be back. Everything else can work around it.”

Wait and see if Nat feels the same way in six months’ time.

Finale-bloat [So You Think You Can Dance]

Posted in Australiana, news, So You Think You Can Dance on April 27, 2008 by jetsamjr

Coming out of the So You Think You Can Dance finale, I feel like a mordibly obese person pulling himself out of a scorching desert. That was some epically bloated television, you guys.

My professionally penned recap of the episode is here. To quote:

As the finale finally starts to wind down, Nat out drags Jack and Rhys to remind us how adorable they both are. Their final dance together is too cute – can’t they both win?

Word, self. (But yay Jack!)
