Dancing with the Stars Flashback: Emmitt Smith Freestyle

Continuing our look back at some Dancing with the Stars memorable moments from the previous seasons, here is season three winner Emmitt Smith performing a freestlyle routine with his partner Cheryl Burke to “You Can’t Touch This.” The song is complete with the running man and the M.C. Hammer dance that made me nostalgic for my old pair of Hammer pants.

And America’s Favorite Dancer is…

The So You Think You Can Dance finale was the most surprising finale in the history of the show! While last year’s winner, Benji Schwimmer, was no surprise, I completely misjudged how America would vote this year. I am so happy with the result. What follows is my recap, which I wrote throughout the two hour finale:

So You Think You Can Dance Final Four Performance Show

The final performance show of So You Think You Can Dance has arrived! It seems like this season has gone by so fast. It will, of course, grind to a near standstill over the next two nights however, as Fox manages to stretch the final two episodes into two hours each. It will not too difficult with the performance show tonight, where each dancer will dance with each other dancer, and dance as a group, which takes time. The real skill will come in managing to take something that could last two minutes (announcing the winner on Thursday night) and stretch it into two hours. That is genius.

Dan Karaty returned as host this week, along with the usuals Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. I was really hoping for Karaty to make an appearance this week because I think he is a very fair judge. I really liked his brown suede (velvet?) jacket this week. Mary’s green dress was really pretty today, after some questionable fashion choices earlier this year. Cat Deeley’s gold dress looked okay from a distance (I thought it was sequins), but looked like an ugly couch or curtains or something close up.

The judges talked about how great this season has been. Mary screamed. Nigel said that show will return for another season next year. They then proceeded to show the highlights of each dancer for the whole season, starting with the auditions.
