Young Hollywood Awards: DWTS Round-Up with Derek Hough, Mark Ballas and Amy Purdy


I've had a really fun weekend and this photo just about sums it up. I'm uploading the audio files as quickly as I can for you. First up is Derek Hough. I asked him about the ending of his tour, Season 19 of DWTS and what challenges are left for him on the show. This is RAW, UNEDITED audio footage, so understand it's noisy and it was a very chaotic red carpet. (In fact, he was trying to leave and I jumped in and badgered him with questions…I HAD TO GET THIS INTERVIEW!)

2014 Dizzy Feet Gala: Cyrus Spencer


The Dizzy Feet Gala is one of my favorite events each year. The only thing that rivals this red carpet for me is the Oscars. It's just such a great day to celebrate dance with all of your favorite stars from DWTS and SYTYCD. If you missed my interviews, you can watch the highlights here.

I was asked to post SYTYCD Season 9 finalist Cyrus Spencer's full interview. I was happy to comply. It's unedited footage because I think it's always fun to see what happens right before and after our interview. Sometimes the pre-interview chit chat is more insightful than the questions asked on the red carpet.

I have other full interviews with tWitch and Allison Holker, Emma Slater, Fabrice Calmels, Courtney Galiano and Witney Carson. Let me know if you would like me to post any of their full interviews in the comments section below.

Chelsie Hightower's full interview is here.

SYTYCD Season 11: Malene Ostergaard


This was definitely another first for us on SYTYCD on AfterBuzz TV. I've really been trying to mix it up for you guys this season. I've always wanted to go behind the scenes with the show because it's so interesting to hear how the audition rounds really went, what rehearsals are like and what happens when you are voted off. I know I'm not the only one, so I hope you have an enjoyed some of the new guests we have brought in like Mindy Arnold and a contestant from this season like Malene Ostergaard.

Yes, Malene was as gorgeous in person as she was on TV, but don't be fooled by her looks. She was a smart and insightful guest. I was so thrilled to get her on our show and I know this isn't the last we've seen of her…DWTS, perhaps?

Next week is Mandy Moore and I cannot wait to get a choreographer's perspective on Season 11. We will also be recovering from the elimination of four dancers. It's going to be a tough week.




I didn't post the show from Vibe Studio owner Mindy Arnold with her daughter and SYTYCD Season 9/current DWTS cast member Lindsay Arnold. If you want to hear more about the politics of SYTYCD, watch this show…it was fascinating.

SYTYCD Season 11: Audrey Case



Season 9's Audrey Case was back in the house! It was so good to see her and get the inside scoop on Choreographers' Showcase for SYTYCD. Don't know what we are talking about? Make sure to watch the episode below.

We talked a lot about choreographers being accountable for their work as much as the contestants are each week. Nigel Lythgoe had no problem saying some to Benji Schwimmer and Spencer Liff this week. Do you agree?

We also chatted about Malene Ostergaard's exit and Nigel's comments to her. I think we all agreed it was a bit harsh, but I hope she realizes this is just the beginning of good things to come…just ask Brittany Cherry!

VIDEOS: 2014 Outstanding Choreography Emmy Nominees


Congratulations to all of today's Emmy nominees for choreography. It's a tough competition this year. Just taking a quick glance, there are strong entries from Derek Hough with "Human" and "Ameksa", NappyTabs has an impressive SYTYCD opening number with "Puttin' on the Ritz"and Christopher's Scott's "Sand" was iconic for Season 10 of SYTYCD.

One interesting thing to note since we've been talking about choreography and how it's hard to copyright lately: (See this Instagram post for more info.) Shannon Mather accused Travis Wall of copying her choreography for the dance "Medicine" last season. She had submitted a YouTube video to be considered for choreography for Season 10 of SYTYCD. Travis came up with a similar dance later in the season. He is now nominated for an Emmy this year for the dance. I spoke with Shannon last year when this all happened and we talked about it on AfterBuzz TV. See this post for more info and all of the dances. Do you think they are similar?
