With us now down to ten dancers on “So You Think You Can Dance” this season, the show is going to be finding yet another way to honor its past by bringing back the All-Stars. Want some other good news? After two straight years (one as a competitor, one as an all-star) of seeing his time on the show cut short due to injury, Alex Wong is finally going to be back on the dance floor.
Per OMGDance, here is the list of the ten all-stars who are going to be on this show this coming week:
1. Alex Wong (Season 7)
2. Allison Holker (Season 2)
3. Brandon Bryant (Season 5)
4. Jaimie Goodwin (Season 3)
5. Jakob Karr (Season 6)
6. Anya Garnis (Season 3)
7. Kathryn McCormick (Season 6)
8. Lauren Gottlieb (Season 3)
9. Stephen “Twitch” Boss (Season 4)
10. Nick Lazzarini (Season 1)
The only thing that is a little bit surprising about this list is that no one from last season is included — and while we know Sasha Mallory has been touring with Madonna, it’s still surprising given how many great dancers we saw there. However, we are thrilled to see some other fan favorites on here including Twitch (whose hip-hop with Alex is still the stuff of legend), Anya, and Nick from the show’s very first season. We don’t know if these are the only ten performers that we will see this season, but the timing this time around will probably keep Chelsie Hightower (now of “Dancing with the Stars”) from taking part.
This season has at times felt rushed due to the Olympics and the once-a-week format, so it will be nice now to get more individual spotlights on our remaining contestants — and also see how they stack up against some of the best dancers ever.
