SYTYCD 7 Top 11 featured on Us Weekly, [ June 28th Issue 802 ]

A spread of the Top 11 dancers on this week’s issue of Us Weekly. “Introducing the hottest hoofers on the Fox hit,” say the magazine.

This feature validates the show’s ‘arrival’ to mainstream media. We don’t recall a SYTYCD article from celeb magazines before or maybe we haven’t been paying attention much.
