comes from the great songs that are chosen to go along with the dances. And once the episodes are over, the fans get online to figure out what songs the choreographers picked. BuddyTV readers posted last night looking for the names of all the songs from Neil and Danny's performance to Lacey's solo. Never fear, the entire music recap is here with all the info you need to get your download on.
Kicking off the show were the final four in a Broadway routine choreographed by Tyce DiOrio. Being the Fosse lover that he is, he chose Liza Minell's version of "Mein Herr" from the Cabaret
soundtrack. The show debuted on Broadway in 1966 and a movie version was made in 1972. It enjoyed a revival in the late 90s and featured many celebrities over the years including Neil Patrick Harris, Teri Hatcher, Gina Gershon, and John Stamos.
