So You Think You Can Dance: Hillary Duff to Perform this Thursday

BuddyTV - USA - FOX has announced its special musical guest for Thursday's So You Think You Can Dance live results show: Hillary Duff.  Duff, the singer/actress (Lizzy McGuire, Cheaper By the Dozen), will perform the the third single, Stranger, from her new album, entitled Dignity.  This is the second Thursday episode in a row that So You Think You Can Dance will have wrangled a major celebrity for its guest performance (last Thursday episode featured Fergie and Ludacris).  Duff's latest album has been somewhat of a disappointment in record sales, debuting at #3 on the Billboard charts, selling around 140,000 copies in its first week.  Ironically, Dignity may be Duff's best reviewed album to date.

FOX also announced that Adam Shankman, director of the upcoming film musical Hairspray will be the guest judge on both Wednesday and Thursday.  Not only that, Shankman will be choreographing Thursday's group routine to You Can't Stop the Beat, a song from Hairspray.

This new guest judge thing (Debbie Allen guested two weeks ago) is intriguing, but I'm not entirely sure that it's a good thing.  Politeness seems to prevail when a guest is on the panel.  Maybe not always politeness between judges, but I never feel like guest judges are comfortable critiquing contestants they hardly know.  And, especially in this instance, where Shankman is there to actively promote a film, he's not going to want to come away from the show with any sort of negative vibe.  Don't expect him to spout many disparaging words to the dancers.
