League of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD) & SYTYCD at Academy Awards - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

League of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD) & SYTYCD at Academy Awards

March 9, 2010 by  

Since I’m not much of a TV gal, you can guess what my favorite part of the entire Academy Awards telecast was…the dancing.  Choreographer Adam Shankman put together a phenomenal piece showcasing the music honored for Best Score. Take a closer look and you might recognize more than a few of our favorites from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.

In addition to favorites from the original League of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD) which includes GLEE star Harry Shum Jr., Lil C and Legacy; the following SYTYCD alums also performed: Nick Lazzarini, Travis Wall, Jaimie Goodwin, Katee Shean, Janette Manrara, Kupono Aweau, Tony Bellissimo, Caitlin Kinney, Kayla Radomski, Noelle Marsh, Channing Cooke, Jakob Karr, Ellenore Scott, Legacy Perez, Russell Ferguson, and Kathryn McCormick. (Although sadly I only saw a few of those familiar faces during the performance.)

In case you missed the dance number, or wanted to watch it again, here you go.

Thanks to SYTYCDism for the video and for being such a great SYTYCD resource.

    Tony actually had NPH on his shoulder, and in the middle of our party I shouted “HOLY CRAP it’s Tony from So You Think You Can Dance” and they all looked at me like I was crazy.

    I missed the video. 🙁 I’ll have to keep my eye out for it elsewhere.

    Didn’t really have to take a close look to see Kayla! White Lightning was easy to spot – and she was fantastic! As were all of the dancers.
