Ballet dancer masters hip-hop on 'SYTYCD'

When contemporary dancer Alex took the stage to perform a hip-hop routine with tWitch on Wednesday night's episode of "So You Think You Can Dance," the expectations were not very high. After all, we all saw how Billy handled krumping last week.

It was the first time that two guys had performed hip-hop since season two when Benji and Travis gave us "Tranji." This would have to live up to that - and boy, did it ever.

Alex matched tWitch's hard-hitting moves, and looked like he had been dancing this style all of his life, earning what Cat Deeley called the biggest roar from the audience the show has ever seen. Alex has now been part of two of the best performances this season, and has shown he's a force to be reckoned with.

Confidence is key on 'Top Chef'

This time on "Top Chef" it’s all about confidence.

And what better way to shake the cheftestants confidence than with the widow-maker of ‘Top Chef’ dessert.

As expected, stunned faces fill the "Top Chef" kitchen as it’s announced Johnny Iuzzini will be judging the chefs' pie making skills. If you’ll remember, dessert is a genre of food that’s sent the last two cheftestants packing.

Former flames on the cover of Teen Vogue

Ah, puppy love! In an exclusive interview in the August issue of Teen Vogue, Disney darlings Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato open up about their red-hot romance – less than 48 hours before they split.

“I had always fancied him,” Lovato, 17, says of “Camp Rock” co-star Jonas, 20. “Want to know what actually happened? One night I asked him, ‘What is the deal? We're perfect for each other. What are you doing?’ And he was like, ‘This is really awkward. I have to go.’"

Jonas tells the magazine he needed time to think, while Lovato admits she freaked out that the friendship was ruined. “But then the next day,” she says, “he came knocking at my door.” Explains the middle JoBro, “Once she confronted me, I kind of confronted myself.”

'Party Down' gets the axe

When two cast members - including the main protagonist - are leaving the show, and the ratings are low, the chances of survival are slim. So it went when the critically acclaimed comedy "Party Down," having just finished its second season, was canceled by Starz on Wednesday.

The show avoided a similar situation to that which was faced by "Scrubs" recently (and will soon be faced by "The Office"), since star Adam Scott is now a cast member on "Parks and Recreation," and would only have been able to return for three episodes. Ryan Hansen, another cast member, was also unlikely to return, since he's now on the upcoming NBC series "Friends with Benefits."

The cancellation of the series about a team of caterers caused a minor uproar on Twitter, with people like comedian Steve Agee tweeting, "Everyone should cancel their Starz network subscriptions now."
