  • OnTheFlix
Hey, "So You Think You Can Dance" fans. Tonight, September 2,2019, another Live performances/results show did indeed air, and another two unlucky dancers got sent packing at the end of it. The judges: Laurieann Gibson, Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe were all on hand to give their critiques. The final 6 dancers were featured tonight. They danced with returning All-Stars from various seasons. Tonight's Live results show kicked off with the final 6 dancers doing another group routine. It featured them dressed up as zombie's and doing a spooky dance number from choreographers Pharside & Phoenix. Right after that, Bailey Munoz and All-Star Koine Iwasaki hit the stage to perform a Broadway routine by choreographer Al Blackstone. Afterwards, Dominic said, "Bailey is an amazing dancer. So, I believed the character and performance." Laurieann said, "I would buy a ticket to any show that Bailey is in." Nigel said, "Bailey is

‘So You Think You Can Dance’ recap: ‘Top 6 Perform’ and America decides which 4 go to the finals [Updating Live Blog]
Season 16 of “So You Think You Can Dance” is in the home stretch. Going into the Labor Day show on Monday night, September 2, six dancers went in, and by the end America’s votes decided the four finalists who would compete for the title. Find out what happened below in our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

Contemporary dancers have ruled the live shows, taking 5 of the top 10 slots coming out of the Academy rounds. Their dominance was even greater in the top six; they made up two-thirds of this week’s remaining contestants: Madison Jordan, Gino Cosculluela, Sophie Pittman and Mariah Russell, who went up against lone b-boy Bailey Munoz and ballroom specialist Ezra Sosa. So there was a chance that contemporary could sweep the finals.

Why Rylan and his befuddled mum are the saviours of Celebrity Gogglebox

Despite its glamorous guests, the sleb-strewn strand of the show lacks the authenticity of Actual Gogglebox and its fusty air of domesticity

Definitive ranking of every celebrity pairing on Celebrity Gogglebox so far this year: Denise van Outen and her fiance Eddie; Rylan Clark-Neal and his mum (joint 1st); wholesome Fiat 500 banger merchants Little Mix (2nd); Gyles Brandreth, but only when he’s saying: “Does she turn you on like I do?” in a sultry Maura voice because he’s watching Love Island with a semi-revolted Sheila Hancock (3rd); Literally Everyone Else (4th); voiceover man Craig Cash Talking To You Like You’re A Toddler Who’s Just Suffered A Brain Injury (5th); Chris Eubanks Jr and Sr (6th); Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev (7th); and here, dead last where he belongs, is Eamonn Holmes.

We should confront the fact that Celebrity Gogglebox is not as good as Actual Gogglebox,

Strictly Come Dancing final: film-maker Dooley paso dobles to triumph

After a series fraught with scandal, the final and its winner were pleasingly joyful

In the end, it was a relief to get a fun, big-hearted Strictly Come Dancing final, featuring broadcaster Stacey Dooley (paired with Kevin Clifton), Former Steps singer Faye Tozer (partnered with Giovanni Piernice), social media star Joe Sugg (dancing with Dianne Buswell), and former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts (teamed with Pasha Kovalev).

At times, this has been something of an awkward, snitty, moany Strictly series. There was the “kiss scandal” involving comedian Seann Walsh and Katya Jones. Bullying allegations swirling around Danny John-Jules and partner Amy Dowden. And the usual non-stop griping about contestants with “previous dance experience”, this year directed at Roberts, which seemed a little unfair (the song wasn’t called Don’t Cha Wish Your Girlfriend Could Charleston Like Me?).

Strictly a show trial: why all the fuss about Seann and Katya's snog?

Seann Walsh, Katya Jones, her husband and his dog have been in the UK papers all week. Is the ‘curse of Strictly’ more about moralistic BBC bashing?

It all started with a snog. Since shots of Strictly Come Dancing contestant Seann Walsh’s drunken kiss with dance partner Katya Jones appeared on the front page of the Sun on Sunday, the story has been played out in the red-tops. Today, the pair have made front pages of the Sun, the Mirror and Daily Mail. Their crime? Not apologising enough for said snog when they appeared on the Strictly spin-off It Takes Two to apologise for their actions.

It is not surprising the duo have been pilloried by the press. The popular press love stories about the relationship-ending “curse of Strictly”, whose victims include rugby player Ben Cohen (who left his wife and now has a child with his dance partner

Strictly Come Dancing 2017: the launch night – as it happened

Glitter gang, unite! Strictly is back and there’s a whole new batch of ballroom stars waiting to be paired with their partners. You joined us for every sparkling second

8.41pm BST

So that was the first instalment. There might not have been any big stars, but there was charm, glitter and great moves by the bucketful. Thanks very much for joining me. Here’s a final thought from sojomo.

I had forgotten how long it goes on.

Legs crossed time.

Must remember for the coming weeks: really shouldn't have so much to drink.

8.36pm BST

So judging by the group dance to Kenny Loggins’s Footloose, Chizzy is a useful mover, Debbie McGee can dance, Charlotte Hawkins has all the animation of a fossil and the hip-thrusting Rev is this year’s Ed Balls.

8.34pm BST

So that’s it, everyone’s paired off and Strictly 2017 can commence. Bruno

Len: "The problem is you're like an English rose and the paso is a cactus, sharp aggressive and spiky. It doesn't really suit your personality. I got the willies at one time when I thought you would use the wrong foot. It wasn't great, Kate - I wish it was."

Darcey: "You look the part – absolutely stunning. To help strengthen your performance use those beautiful eyes.

1. Georgia May Foote & Giovanni Pernice dancing the salsa to 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)' by Sylvester = 7+8+8+8=31

Len: "It was a great show starter and a bit of a show stopper. Terrific routine, a disco salsa. You were really working your assets. Well done – great start!"

Bruno: "You're a gorgeous little strumpet! Those hips were like a bag of steps. More of that please. It's good to see you so alive. Be careful of the lifts' dismount – that has to be absolutely flawless."

2. Carol Kirkwood & Pasha Kovalev dancing the Viennese Waltz to 'I've Been Loving You Too Long' by Seal: 4+6+6+5=21

Strictly Come Dancing: All the dances, judges' comments and scores from Week 4

Strictly Come Dancing is now into its fourth week and the competition is really hotting up, with an incredibly close leaderboard.

Digital Spy was watching along and have rounded up all of the scores and judges' comments below:

1. Anita Rani and Gleb Savchenko dancing the samba to 'Hips Don't Lie by Shakira: 6+7+7+7=27

Len: "Your hips certainly don't lie. A little bit long getting started but once you got into it… I thought you coped very well. I think it could have been better leg action, but I'm being pernickety."

Bruno: "That was warming up nicely. The samba has a carefree feel to it, but a couple of times there you got a little tangled and it kind of stopped it a little bit. The technique is actually very very hard. It was a bit on and off."

2. Daniel O'Donnell & Kristina Rihanoff dancing the American Smooth to 'Fly Me To The Moon

Where on earth was Caroline Flack on tonight's X Factor?

It was pretty much business as usual on The X Factor tonight as the Six Chair Challenge reached its nail-biting conclusion – but one element of the show was noticeably lacking.

Viewers were united in their confusion when they took to Twitter to ask a vital question: where the heck was Caroline Flack?

It certainly didn't seem to go unnoticed that the majority of the show was presented by Olly Murs, flying solo as his co-host was nowhere to be seen.

Some weren't particularly happy about Flack not performing her presenting duties, with one viewer tweeting: "Wonder how much Caroline Flack gets paid for 'presenting' on the X Factor for about 17 seconds each episode".

While others joked that Flack had more reason to kick off about lack of airtime than contestant Mason Noise, with one user tweeting: "Can't believe Mason Noise kicking off about getting 47 seconds on the x factor, that's

1. Carol Kirkwood & Pasha Kovalev dancing the quickstep to 'Wash That Man' from South Pacific: 3+5+5+4=17

Bruno: "It's not quite a tropical heatwave, more a lukewarm breeze. You looked like you were shuffling on damp sand. It was a very difficult dance - you need to sort out the frame."

Len: "I thought that routine had far more content than previous weeks. I love the way you come out and enjoy yourself, and it made me enjoy it. A lovely bubbly dance."

2. Anthony Ogogo & Oti Mabuse dancing the Paso Doble to 'Eye of the Tiger' from Rocky: 4+6+5+4=19

Darcey: "It's your best dance so far, you have this energy – in your body, when you pose,
