The top 20 contestants on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance got their first taste of fame Wednesday. The dancers were treated to hair, makeup, wardrobe and bling plus a sexy photo shoot complete with wind machines and ultra-modern set decorations.
In addition to all of that, the dancers tell RadarOnline.com reporter, Tina Malave, they have “people…”: people who dote on their every need.
But, all that attention doesn’t come without cost. They’ll be required to beat their bodies to a pulp for each new dance style they’ll be learning week to week. Not to mention navigating though the personalities of the dynamic and often demanding choreographers. Strangely, they all say they’re looking forward to the pain.
