TV dance shows have a long history of injuries, and finally season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance has met its first casualty of the dance war. Luckily it’s not one of the Top 8 dancers, just an All-Star.
As Nigel Lythgoe tweeted, All-Star Allison Holker is out this week with a rib injury, though she hopes to be back. And since the Top 8 week of So You Think You Can Dance will feature 12 different routines, this means the show needed to get a new All-Star to fill in.
Season 4 finalist Katee Shean will be taking over Allison’s All-Star spot this week. She joins fellow season 4 finalists Courtney and Twitch.
However, since there will only be eight All-Star partnerships this week, it’s a bit unclear why the show even needed a female replacement. I guess since all the guys are still around, the female All-Stars are all in desperate need of a break like their male counterparts. So far Ade Obayomi and Pasha Kovalev are the only male All-Stars to perform every week while five of the six women have done the same.
