'So You Think You Can Dance' recap: The Funk of Laziness
The judges tonight include Carmen Electra and Travis Wall. Everyone's delighted to see Travis, who appears to be wearing an aubergine velvet tuxedo. I'm going to assume that Ms. Electra is here because her ex-husband Dave Navarro told her how much fun he had being a judge on Rockstar: Supernova. But Cat makes Carmen tell us about how she's been dancing since she was five, majored in ballet and modern dance in high school and was "Miss Dance Ohio" at one point. People major in things in high school? Carmen's story ends with "And ... Pussycat Dolls." I'm not entirely comfortable with the number of shout-outs the Pussycats Dolls have gotten so far in this season. Cat takes a moment to verbally pinch Travis's cheeks and gush about how cute he is. And he's delighted to be here as a judge.
Cat reminds us that she has a big Fourth of July party at her house for all the dancers past and present (which sounds like just the best time ever, doesn't it? Wouldn't you love to go to a Cat Deeley party?) and then gives us the usual rundown about the evening's festivities. There will be two group routines that the judges won't comment on. However will the voters of America know what to think if they don't have Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy there to guide them?
