TV Alert: Ellen makes an appearance on “So You Think You Can Dance”

Hey Cat Deeley, what’s that sound you hear?

I’ll give you a hint: it’s coming to So You Think You Can Dance tonight and it’s hotter than the Hot Tamale Train.

Mia Michaels? Good guess! And yes, she is a guest judge on tonight’s show. And yes, she is hotter than a Hot Tamale Train riding around on the surface of the sun — but I’m talking about a dancer even more popular than her!

I know, Mia! I know! I’m excited too!

OK, one more hint, Deeley, and it’s just because I want to kiss you on the mouth you asked so nicely. Tonight’s super special fourth guest judge has been Tweeting her excitement all week long:

I’m the guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance this Wednesday night on Fox. I hope mama finishes sewing my leotard in time!

I’m the guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance this Wednesday night on Fox. They don’t call me the Polka Queen for nothing!

I’m the guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance this Wednesday night on Fox. Someone’s gotta show ‘em how its done on the streets!

Yes, you’re right: Ellen DeGeneres is joining the judging panel for tonight’s 99th episode of So You think You Can Dance!

OK, that’s a little much. You’re not that surprised; you did make the announcement on last week’s show. I know: I had to rewind it five times to make sure I was hearing you correctly. Occasionally, you make my brain feel punch drunk fuzzy.

So You Think You Can Dance is down to its final eight dancers tonight, and Ellen’s appearance as a guest judge is just the thing we need to pull us into the home stretch. How will Ellen respond to Mary Murphy‘s whooping and hollering? Will her gaydar ping on Mia Michaels? Will she get up and dance? And, perhaps most importantly, will the building actually explode from the sheer awesomeness of having Cat Deeley, Mia Michaels and Ellen it at the same time? Will I explode from watching?

Who will be tuning into Fox tonight to find out?
