SYTYCD On AfterBuzz TV: Top 18 Perform Preview


After much discussion about last week's eliminations, I am happy to see that Nigel Lythgoe and the rest of the producers retooled the format a bit. Tomorrow night, we will see the Bottom 6 revealed at the top of the show. Two dancers will be immediately saved and then the Bottom 4 will fight for their lives during the show. The judging and eliminations will happen at the end of the evening. This is a fantastic format and it makes more sense. I'm sorry that Brittany and Carlos didn't have that same opportunity.

The celebrity guest judge is Paula Abdul.  I know a lot of people are excited by this news. Paula will offer some interesting insight, but I feel like she's been a judge on every talent show on TV. Also joining the panel will be FOX sportscaster Erin Andrews. She's familiar to DWTS' audience after her Season 10 stint on the show with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Let's see how tomorrow night goes.

If you are clever,  you've been peeking at the list of upcoming guests. If you haven't heard, then it's time to announce our AfterBuzz TV SYTYCD guest this week.


It's Sharna Burgess! We are thrilled to have her back to the ABTV studios. She is so honest with her answers and she has the inside scoop on this year's contestants since she works with choreographer Jason Gilkison.  He choreographed that infamous Jive and the Viennese Waltz first live week.

If you have comments or questions for Sharna, make sure to add them in the section below. Remember, we are focusing in on SYTYCD, so DWTS questions will probably not be answered at this time.  Thanks for all of your feedback so far!

Watch SYTYCD on AfterBuzz TV LIVE at 9pm PT on Wednesday. Watch here.

  1. Hi everyone!! I am Sharna's BIGGEST FAN EVER!!! She was my favourite pro this season and my favorite troupe member from season 13-15!!! Team Shandy/Team Dick all the way!!! Sharna is my idol and inspiration and the person that I will search up on YouTube when I need some cheering up!! Thanks for answering my question from the DWTS week 10 after show (Describe your partner in 3 words)!!! Here are some of my questions (there may be more over time)!!!

    1. When you watch the dances on SYTYCD, DWTS or even at a competition, do you pick apart the dances and think about what you would have changed or what you would have practiced more?

    2. What are your thoughts on the new format of SYTYCD this season?

    3. What is it like working with Jason Gilkison and being a assistant chorographer for the dancers?

    4. If you could make your own dance style what would it be and why? Would it be a mix of cha-cha and jazz, samba and jive etc.

    5. Do you have any tips for aspiring professional dancers like me? I am 12 yrs old and I take jazz and tap classes and I have successfully auditioned for my dance school's performing group. Oh and I really want to learn Ballroom/Latin but there is no studio in my area that teaches it.

    Please show Sharna this: I may only be 12 years old but, you have changed my life forever. You gave the inspiration to push myself when I dance and to never give up on my dancing dreams. When you dance on Dancing With The Stars I can always relate to your dances/choreography and the story they are trying to tell. You are my idol and inspiration, a beautiful woman and dancer and just an overall gift to the world. When you and Andy were eliminated from DWTS season 16, I was devastated. I literally cried for 2 hours!!!

    During school, sometimes my friends can be really mean. But, the tweet that you sent me always makes me feel like I belong in the world again. The tweet said "We love u!! ;)" With a quote of the tweet that I sent to you and Peta while you were in Vegas. Whenever I try to tell my friends about you or any of your dances, they always tell me to shut up.Then it makes me feel like I'm not loved or cared about. When I look at that tweet I tell myself "At least you know one person cares about your thoughts". Your dances give me strength to push through the tough times in life because one day, we may not have life anymore.

    The one thing that I want to do in life is to dance on DWTS and get the chance to meet you! You gave me a stronger passion for dance and for all that life has to offer! I will support you until the end of time, no matter what anyone else says! You give me hope to someday reach my dreams and make life worth something! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a great person and a amazing role model!

    Please check me out on twitter!! Personal- @DanceLuvEmily Sharna Fan Page- @SharnaUltraFans !! Also please check out the fan site I made for Sharna: www.sharnaultrafans.weebly.com !!

    Thanks so very much (Love and support you always Sharna!)

  2. This is general question for everybody. What do you think about all the brunettes this season? Do you think that will be hurtful in a way to the dancers because the viewers could see them as "doubles"? Do you think this is an advantage to Malece and Mariah?

  4. Oh yeah, I have another question for Sharna:

    6. Do you have any rituals that you do before or after a show or competition?

  5. And another question for Sharna:

    7. What do you think makes SYTYCD different from DWTS and what do you think makes them the same?

    -Emily Bennett :) xxx

  6. This is my last question for Sharna:

    8. If you didn't dance ballroom/latin, what style would you dance (jazz, contemporary etc.)and why?

    -Emily Bennett :) xxx

  7. Grant here. First off i'm fuming at the underappreciation of Ballroom because Jenna is one of the best and didn't deserve to be there..But anyways Sharna would you ever submit for choreography because SYTYCD could use some good ballroom choreographers so that they can utilize the ballroom dancers talent?

  8. Okay so I just remembered a question that I really wanted to ask Sharna:

    9. Do you have a fan mail address??? I have something I want to send to you!!!

  10. Just to round it off, here is my tenth question for Sharna:

    10. Out of all the remaining ballroom/latin dancers (Alan, Jenna & Paul) do you think that any of them could be asked to do DWTS just like Lindsay and Witney?

    -Emily Bennett :) xxx

  11. What do you find the be the most challenging part of teaching a trained contemporary/ballet/jazz ect dancer, ballroom dancing? I would assume teaching celebrities you can show them the ballroom basics, but is it hard to untrain them from what they know and teach them something different?

    Love spotting you assisting for Jason in rehearsal packages!

    Thanks!
