So You Think You Can Dance: Top 20 Showcase

It's really a shame that Billy Bell had to drop out because of illness. He was one of the fan favorites and had a great performance tonight. Well, here are KT's and my thoughts on the episode:

Footloose Can't Catch a Break

The Footloose remake is not having very good luck. The director, Kenny Ortega, has just backed out of the production. The film's first troubles came when Zac Efron dropped out because he didn't want to get type cast into teen musicals like High School Musical, Hairspray, and Footloose. Which I think is smart for his long term career, but as I fan I was sad to hear it. I think he has a great voice and did a great job in Hairspray. I would have been happy to watch him in a few more musicals before he switched directions, but what can you do? He's made his choice. Zac Efron's departure isn't the news though.

Footloose just lost its director. A pretty big blow, which may delay production. A replacement has yet to be found, which could delay production. Are you guys looking forward to this film? I'm a fan of movie musicals, but this one hasn't sparked my interest as much as Hairspray did, for example.

V: Sneak Peak

ABC's next big show "V" doesn't start until November 3, but now we can watch the first 8 minutes online!

I'm really excited for this show. It's a remake, but I've never seen the original. I'm a sucker for sci fi shows and this looks right up my alley. Plus, it's got a great cast with Emily Mitchell and Morena (from Firefly).

What do you guys think of the first 8 minutes? Will you be tuning in on November 3?
