2004 brought many milestones and epic moments in TV. After the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show controversy, American television saw itself heavily censored as the FCC tightened its rules on indecency. Taking a page from the epic 2004 film Mean Girls, the FCC deemed that "it only counts if you saw [Janet's] nipple," which, well, everyone did. Check out the final seconds of this clip:
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE - SEASON 9 - TOP 20
After a grueling week during Vegas callbacks on So You Think You Can Dance, the judges narrowed it down from the 188 contestants to 35 and tonight down to the Top 20. Some of our early favorites like Mariah Spears, Tim Conkel and Asher Walker were impressive in Vegas but in the end did not impress the judges enough to be in the top 35. We've made early predictions last week on who's going to make the Top 20 but after seeing the Vegas Callbacks episode, we're going to go on a limb and predict at least 12 of the 20 dancers for Season 9. Special thanks goes to our reality show expert, Melissa Goodman, for giving us her deep insights on these predictions. We've included some of our thoughts as to why we think the judges have chosen these contestants. Ok, here we go!
Witney Carson - our absolute favorite. love her, love everything about. thinking about being her for Halloween.
Lindsay Arnold - BFFs with Witney Carson and fellow ballroom dancer. Gets our automatic vote.
Janelle Issis - her hips don't lie and will be shaking her way into the Top 20.
Eliana Girard - ballerina pole dancer with legs for days. PERIOD.
Amelia Lowe - Tyce is just dying to have her do one of his routines.
Alexa Anderson - this season's Ryan Ramirez
Audrey Case - can do shoulder farts and lick her elbows. Nuff said.
Daniel Baker - Aussie accent gets us every time.
Cyrus Spencer - the show always needs an underdog and he's got the talents to back it up.
Cheyon Wespi-Tschopp - another talented ballet dancer who can give Daniel Baker a run for his Aussie dollar.
Cole Horibe - this season's Alex Wong
Dareian Kujawa - when Nigel calls out your nipples on national TV, you should automatically be in the Top 20.
Our favorite group performance from Vegas Callbacks week - The High Schoolers
Tune into Fox tonight (8/7c) to find out who makes the top 20!
