Not only does their work provide "oohs" and "ahs" for the at-home audience, but now three So You Think You Can Dance choreographers can add an Emmy Award nomination to their list of feats.
Last year's Emmy champ Wade Robson (who shared the award with High School Musical's Kenny Ortega and fellow SYTYCD choreographer Mia Michaels) picked up a nomination for his "Hummingbird and Flower" routine, featuring Hok and Jamie. Mandy Moore, meanwhile, grabbed a nod for her "Table" dance to "Sweet Dreams" with Neil and Sabra, and Shane Sparks was nominated for the dance "Transformers" (who knew that was what it was called??) to the song "Fuego" (featuring Lauren and Pasha).
What -- no love for Mia Michaels? What about her brilliant Lacey/Kameron routine?
The three SYTYCD choreographers will go up against two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Julianne Hough, who was recognized for her mambo routine with Helio Castroneves, and Kenny Ortega, who was nominated for his work on High School Musical 2.
