Holmes' Dancing Defended By Tv Judge

Subscribe to Katie Holmes alerts

Katie Holmes' dancing has been defended by TV producer Nigel Lythgoe after her recent performance on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was dubbed "amateurish".
The actress appeared on the U.S. show's 23 July (09) season finale, to perform a singing and dancing tribute to Judy Garland.
While many experts praised her rendition, others were more critical and members of the public, critics and fellow dancers posted scathing reviews online.
One wrote, "She tried to mimic Judy Garland but didn't come close."
The snipes prompted show producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe to take to the internet himself, in Holmes' defence.
He wrote on his Twitter.com page, "I'm trying to figure out why Katie is being judged as a dancer. When a (baseball) star throws out the opening pitch no one says, 'Ooh, crap pitcher.'"

There is a mistake in your article.The last line reads "when a (baseball) star throws out the first pitch..."Take out the (baseball). In America they use movie stars, singers etc to throw out the first ball of big matches. Your "(baseball)" just took any sense out of Nigel's argument.That being said, I disagree with him.Thank you.
