Update: Now with 100% more JAZZ HANDS!!!!! Ha-cha-cha-chaaaaa! More pictures here.
Katie Holmes was on last night’s episode of “So You Think You Can Dance” to sing and dance a tribute to Judy Garland (video below). Don’t be scared by the length of the clip: the first two minutes are Katie talking about some charity that she’s dancing for — “it’s for the children, blah blah blah” — then she does the little old-timey number for two and a half minutes, then the rest of it is voting results. I think. I kinda skipped through a lot of it.
It’s not particularly bad, just boring. I mean, I guess Katie does okay, but the big musical number in fancy clothes with dancing around light poles as a tribute to an actress who died forty years ago just doesn’t resonate with this blogger at a laptop computer in the 21st century. Don’t get me wrong, there were a lot of things that I like about the 1940s and ’50s — men in fedoras, openly drinking at work, consequence-free sexual harassment, casual racism, the Holocaust — but this kind of musical number just isn’t one of them.
