Well, as far as any new format twists, they haven’t developed anything or let us know of anything that might change.I do know that they do plan on keeping the two winners this season and that was new last year. Minnie Driver is a new judge this season — she studied dance and royal ballet in England.
I think one of our executive producers is even gonna be marrying them!
[Laughs] Kathryn Mc Cormick, of course she got the lead role in the last “Step Up” movie, Alex Wong and Jess Le Protto, Neil [Haskell] too, they were all on Broadway.

And for the very first time I even [used] a cuss word — and I very rarely cuss in my life.
I take that out of my vocabulary, mainly because you’re on live TV and you never want to let anything slip — it doesn’t go down well with the network.
So, it certainly means a lot to me because I know what it can do for somebody.
It certainly gave me a purpose and it also made me feel like a human being again!
Danny Tidwell was on Broadway and of course Mark [Kanemura] is traveling with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Eliana just talked to me like 3 weeks ago — she was our prima ballerina last year that won — and now she said “You’re not gonna believe what I’m doing — I’m traveling with Taylor Swift!
