So You Think You Can Dance Ramps it Up

If you haven't been following this season of FOX's American Idol meets dance recital competition So You Think You Can Dance, then now's the time to tune in and start your new addiction.  We're all about addictions here at Out -- men, cocktails, catchy pop music, men... wait, what was I talking about?

Last night the show opened with an insanely rave-tastic group number: think Kanye West's Glow in the Dark Tour on ecstasy.  As if that's not enough to get you watching, our favorite lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres, served as a guest judge. Check out the dance and her commentary above.

And if you haven't gotten enough dance today, check out the 100th episode of the show tonight at 9\8 central.  The episode is going to revisit its past with live performances, including several of its Emmy nominated choreographed numbers and the now infamous "Rama Lama Bang Bang" dance from Season 2. (By the way, if you haven't heard the Roisin Murphy song, welcome to yet another addiction.)  

Furthermore, Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise's pet, erhm, wife, will perform a musical routine.  This one has disaster written all over it, which means I'll be waiting eagerly with a big bowl of popcorn.
