Questions Answers
What is the main difference between shows that are exclusively online and shows that air on TV? Is there any difference in filming? Is there any less pressure when it comes to ratings or competitiveness with other shows? And how different is the marketing? Broadcast Television is meant to appeal to a bread section of the audience. Consequently, you live and die by your ratings. With working in the digital area, you have a much more focused audience for the subject. Without doubt, it would be difficult to do a chorography show on broadcast television. Dance itself frightens many television executives. Choreography is even more focused and many television executives cannot even pronounce the word, therefore it was extremely important to do Every Single Step on a digital channel where people who are interested in the subject can make a point of watching it. The video world is a little bit like a library where you can go and find the reference books you need and that is certainly what is happening with video content at this time. We will always be judged on how many people watch the programs, so make sure you tune in at go90 on the DanceOn Network’s go90.
Where do you see the future of dance going? in your perfect world what would happen? In my perfect world, every elementary school in the country would have dance classes. Dance for me is such an important part of human life. We danced and moved physically our body long before we managed to talk, it expresses our feelings and ignites our creativity. It builds bridges, it communicates far better on occasions than words.
Neuroscientists are finding that kids learn better, math, english, geography and history when they are doing something artistic like dancing. Dancing brings communities together, gives kids confidence. Its team building, it makes better human beings of us all.
So, I'm not interested if we become professional dancers I'm only interested in the fact that dancing helps up both physically and mentally.
What are hoping for the final season of American idol ? We are hoping to remember the impact, both in entertainment terms and socially, that American Idol had on the country for over a decade when families and neighbors would come together to watch the program. With over 143M votes some weeks, the entire county was engrossed to find the next singing superstar. I hope that we will remember Simon Cowell’s honesty, Paula’s heart, and Randy’s energy. It was an incredible television program that we will never see the light of again and I hope that we can capture some of those memories in this year’s finale; along with crowing the 2016 American Idol! There are a lot of good ideas going into this production and I hope you will enjoy it next year.
How did you live the huge exit from American Idol? I guess it was the first time I'd been fired in my life.
I've made a point to never look back, I'm not going in that direction. You have to move on and pick yourself up and get on with life.
There's no question it was tough, I always felt that AI was my baby. I don't feel that I failed with AI, I'm very proud of what we achieved. Anyway failure is not final, only if you give up and I'm not the type of person to give up.
Which is why I've probably been asked back to produce the final ever Idol show. I guess they needed someone to turn the lights out.
What are your favorite SYTYCD routines ever? To be honest I can't really give you my favorite routines but there are certainly some tentpole routines that stand out and you will probably remember. The bench routine from Mia Michaels. Rama-Lama from Wade Robson, along with his hummingbird and flower routine (which earned him an Emmy). Tyce DiOrio's breast cancer routine, the addiction routine and Travis Wall's routine about his brother.
All exceptionally memorable and all great choreography. So it is totally impossible for me to choose anyone as a favorite.
Which do you like more, American Idol or So You Think You Can Dance and why? Naturally as a dancer, I prefer SYTYCD. The hours of work that a dancer has to put in, I can only sit back and be proud of them. Dancing isn't always a god given talent. There's a lot of sweat hours that must go into the training. Singing on the other hand, although good training helps. I believe is god given. You need a good ear, a good voice and a great performance.
However, both of these programs give a wonderful platform to extraordinary talent.
Nigel did you think you would ever come this far by being a dancer and a producer? Also is tap the best type of dances or what is you all time favourite of dance I always had dreams to become more than just a background dancer. Did I think I would become a major Hollywood television producer? No. However I did think I would become a West End star. I don't believe you should ever rest on your laurels, whatever door opens for you, its work to go through it but I don't think you should be frightened to transition throughout your life. Its very important to keep growing, learning and remembering that you don't know everything and you never will.
What's the funniest thing that's ever happened to you on set? (Super excited for your new show!!) It turned out to be funny but wasn't funny at the time. I was performing in front of her Her Majesty the Queen of England. I had to lift 2 people at the same time.
Eartha Kitt was in front, Ken Warwick was behind her lifting her. I had to lift them both in the air and I expelled every bit of air that was in my body in a rude manner. Although embarrassing at the time, I've laughed about it for year. I'm not sure her majesty was amused.
Do you think every dancer can be a choreographer? OR, does a good choreographer necessarily need to be an amazing dancer? Umm, I certainly believe that not every dancer can become a good choreographer, but I also believe that not every choreographer has to even be a dancer. I don’t believe that there is a hard and steed fast rule to being a creative artist. I am still in shock knowing that Sonya Tayeh learned to dance by reading books. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it and have the passion to follow your dream.
How did you go from being a Choreographer to a producer? Good question... I was much more of a cerebral choreographer, one that thought more about ideas than dance steps. That led me to work with a great deal of British comedians – Morecambe and Wise, The Two Ronnies, Bobbie Davro, and Brian Conley. I was then asked to produce and direct Bobbie Davro’s series, which led me into production and direction and I was happy to hand my dancing shoes up.
Do you think dancers are better trained today then they were 30 years ago? There's no question today. Not just in technique but in diet, and understanding their bodies. We've learned so much about physiology even in the past 10 years that we are now putting into practice, or is kinesiology- physiology for sure. We're being helped by physical therapists for any slight injuries that may occur. There's even a dance medicine in our local hospital here in Los Angeles.
How was the casting process for ESS? What were you looking for? We were looking for young choreographers, who were both bold and creative; and had a vision that they could inspire their dancers with. We were insistent that these choreographers would not be held back by their fears but led forward by their dreams. Fear stifles creativity. Consequently we needed them to be bold, brave, loud and proud.
What is your favorite plant/flowetree? I think the oak is one of my favorite trees because it is so strong and steadfast. Bullrushers are among my favorite plants because they've learned to bend and give into to strong winds but remain there.
And cacti, because they remain and grow in the most difficult of places and it's always been my belief to bloom wherever you're planted.
Do you truly, honestly think Cilla Black would have wanted to be buried in Liverpool? I absolutely do believe Cilla wanted to be buried in Liverpool. She was a great scouser and although she didn't live in Liverpool, that was always her home. I was at her funeral and thrilled to see how the city turned out on the streets for her. Unfortunately she couldn't be buried by her husband as they were of different religions.
Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, or Magic Mike? (laughs) Ooohh. Dirty Dancing.
I love the story, I thought to be able to take a wallflower and turn her into a princess was just heartwarming. To see a dancer like Patrick Swayze become a movie star was inspirational for so many young dancers. Plus one of my favorite songs is "I Had The Time Of My Life".
Who do you root for on Every Single Step? The fan favorite or the underdog? I root for the creators, the people who are putting their work on the line and being judged. It isn’t easy to layout your work and have it judged. You have to be exceptionally brave and be able to take whatever comments, both good and bad. Anyone that brave deserves support.
Howdy! I'm a long time fan of SYTYCD and would like to ask, will Mary Murphy ever return? I am very close to Mary Murphy and would love to see her return at some point.
Also, do you have any advice for a fellow who would like to embarrass himself less when dancing? I'm going to a party in a couple weeks and would like to look less like a comedy act when I get down. The very fact that you get up and dance is important. You wont find too many people laughing at you; they will be the ones that don’t have the guts to get up themselves. Keep up your dancing without question, you will improve as time goes by, and besides that, you will meet all the best girls.
Do you ever foresee tap making a big comeback? I feel like it sadly it a style from another time...(even with people like Savion Glover) Tap is slowly coming back. Certainly in a number of Broadway shows I've seen in the past year. They've had tap routines in them. People are talking about tap more and more and that's always a good sign and don't forget the last winner Gaby, was a tap dancer!
What's the best dance performance you've ever seen? I was a dancer at the London Palladium and Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev performed. It was an incredible performance that left me dewy eyed. At the same time I have seen some amazing performances on SYTYCD.

Questions Answers
Which audition was the most memorable for you? SEX, New York.
Did any auditions or routines make you cry? The breast cancer routine by Tyce D Orio brought me to tears.
Which dancers made you happy when they came back for another audition after being rejected? Twitch! Came back three times. And I was delighted to see him every time. And now of course, I'm so proud that he is at the top of his trade and one of the main commercial dancers in this country.
Nigel, it appears that the contestants are told not to speak too much and sometimes it's tough to get a handle on their true personalities. Do you edit out some of their comments to keep the competition based solely on their dancing ability? A follow up: What is your most memorable thing edited out of the show? Absolutely not. Most of the contestants that have won SYTYCD do so not just on dance ability, but also on personality. We encourage them to be charismatic. And the most memorable thing that was edited out? Probably the number of breasts popping out. For the auditions mainly. It's whatever they've come in.
How did you manage to quit smoking 60 cigarettes a day? Cold turkey? I had a heart attack. I can recommend a heart attack to anybody who wants to give up cigarettes. As long as you survive the heart attack, you can give up cigarettes.
Can we expect some more twitch appearances this season? or cyrus for that matter? Yes, keep watching, they are both in the audition shows!
What was the transition like between American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance? Was it pretty much the same judging or did you have to have a whole new perspective? I think we had a whole new perspective, because as I previously mentioned, dancers are so passionate about what they do, and they have to dedicate so much of their live to dance. So I don't think you can dismiss them as easily as you can somebody who is totally tuneless, tone-deaf, and you certainly can't make fun of them. We try so hard to give constructive critiques, and not put downs. However sometimes people deserve a put down when they get too arrogant or too rude.
Is Kat that nice in person? Cat is even BETTER in person. The great thing about her is that she is interested in you, and rarely thinks about herself.
Do you still keep up with past contestants? Only when I see them in shows and performances. It's really important that the judges do not become dear friends with contestants. We are not allowed to see them when we are not judging them. A number of them have joined the Dizzy Feet foundation, and we are colleagues in that.
Do you still own your vineyard? What made you decide to purchase one? It was a romantic dream. I still own it, I'm sorry. It was a romantic dream, I came from a poor background in Liverpool and all we had was a small backyard, and to own a vineyard is something very, very special to me.
Thank you SO much for SYTYCD! Can't express how much I love seeing dance in the average home! How do you go about choosing guest judges? Do you approach people you think would be good or do they contact you wanting to be on the show? We approach people that we think will be good. We approach people that we think the audience would like to see. And at times, people contact me as well.
No question, I just want to let people know that this exists. Yes, I was staging the actual video and the young lady that should have been in Johnny Logan's arms was getting made up, and so while we rehearsed it, I ended up being the young lady in Johnny Logan's arms.
Other than judging, do you watch over the editing of the audition shows? Or do you leave that to other producers? I watch the direction of it, I've got monitors by my side in every city that we go to. And then I go into the edit, and watch it being cut, yes. And then I cut out all of the times I look stupid.
I notice nobody has asked yet about the charity you co-founded, the Dizzy Feet Foundation. What made you decide to get involved in this way, and what are some of the success stories you have seen from this organization? I saw so many richly talented kids that we couldn't use for SYTYCD that i wanted to try and help. Since arts in the curriculum for education is no longer there, and they don't get a great deal of time to show their talents, not everybody is great at tests, so I wanted to try to find a way of helping them. So we got scholarships together for them, and with the Dizzy Feet foundation as well, we got community projects where we try to help out local community dance projects and get them the money. We've just taken 200 pairs of tap shoes to a school in New Orleans, and given another 100 pairs of tap shoes to a place called Home here in Los Angeles which deals with kids and after school projects.
Thank you for answering, and thanks for your work supporting the arts in communities and schools! I believe that arts & education is exceptionally important. Every civilization is known for its arts and its wars. I think it's very important that we are remembered for our arts.
What do you think the future of tap holds? Are there any new styles of dance that fuse tap and another style that we should be on the lookout for? It's actually international tap dance week, this week. Tap dancing, I think, has become popular again, certainly now there's a lot of musicals that are including it. There's Newsies on Broadway, another show called After Midnight on Broadway, there's some great exponents of tap now, so I don't think we are going to lose it in any way, shape or form. I think it's becoming more popular. Obviously there's irish dance, which Michael Flatley brought to the fore with Riverdance, which was thrilling to watch.
Will SYTYCD be available to stream this season? I'm a huge fan and would gladly pay to stream or download since we don't use cable anymore. I don't know, to be honest with you. I know everybody asks me for DVDs, and I'm told it's just too expensive to clear the music, which is why we never see a SYTYCD DVD. It's a great show.
Thank you for your answer :) It's a fantastic show and so uplifting/positive. I truly love watching and am grateful to you for making it. You are very kind.
What do you think the people could do (aside from watch SYTYCD) to make sure we get more quality SYTYCD instead of other talent less reality show trash? Tune in and watch SYTYCD! The more the ratings are high, obviously Fox will keep it on the air. At the end of the day, success breeds success for everybody. Fox needs the commercials to make money to pay for the program, and that's the fact of life, I'm afraid. Ratings mean the success or the failure of any program.
What did being an EP on American Idol entail? The choice of songs, the choice of contestants to be put through to see the judges, the choice of genres, the budget, the musical director, the employment of staff, really, you know, it was the show runner.
What do you plan to do beyond SYTYCD in the future? I would like to do a documentary on Nureyev. I would like to do FAME, bring back the series of FAME. And I would like to do some broadway shows.
How's the wine business going? It could be a lot better! Really. But we have just completed building the actual winery. And Twitch and Allison got married at the vineyard.
What's your favorite style of dance? Mine is Lindy Hop! I suppose, this is a tough one. I love all forms of dance is my initial response. There's something to be said for each different genre. I've got to say ballet again, really. I love tap to death, again I can watch any majors. It's a really difficult question. I love all forms of dance. GOOD dancing. Ballroom, everything.
So you think you can dance... As well as the contestants? I've answered this, in no way, shape or form. Not now, not back in the day, never.
What inspired you to create your show,and how did you pick your judges? We pick our judges by people that we believe our audience would like to see. Christina Applegate, for example, Tara Lipinski, Misty Copeland, Paula Abdul, I mean tons of them, really.
IM SO EXCITED FOR SYTYCD do you have a favourite season? Season 4 will always be remembered, because of the characters who were involved in it, Twitch and Joshua and so on.
What's your favorite part about doing the show? The audition process. Seeing new talent, what's out there, and going 'round the country. And then watching somebody in the top 20 grow, and just get better before my very eyes.
Do you wear earplugs? Sitting next to the shrieking woman can't be good for your hearing! No I don't. She rarely screams nowadays, only when she sees something really fabulous. And then I'm happy for her.
Thanks for doing this AMA, Nigel. Who would you say is your favorite dancer to compete on SYTYCD? That changes every year. I'll only say from last season, and it was Fiction. He was so creative in what he did. I was never, ever expecting him to point his toes, but he continued to surprise me with his solos and his own interpretation of the music. But I loved Cyrus, I loved Twitch, I loved the invention of these characters rather than having formal training. They pushed themselves through these obstacles. I'm very proud of their creativity.
Do you feel that shows like Dancing With The Stars or Strictly Come Dancing more help or hurt the art of dance? Why do you feel that way? I think any dance shows that celebrate dance are good for dance. Because they present additional opportunities for dance to be seen.
Are England going to win the World Cup? :P. I'm in the car with my son here, so I'm going to get a reply from him on this one too - not in my lifetime! Hahaha! And he's a young man, and not in my son's lifetime either!
Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck? It depends if the duck's name is Donald.
Fight a duck?! A giant duck?!?
Do you like your gig? I mean do you like your job? do you like being the head judge on SYTYCD? I don't look on it as a job, and that's why I love it so much.
I am a huge car fanatic. What is the fastest car you've ever owned? What was your opinion of it? I suppose it was an S Type Jaguar. Smooth and fast.
Oh Nigel, as a car person I have to say I'm disappointed. If Jaguar is your cup of tea, may I interest you in an F-type? Or, if that's a bit too much flash, try a rapid but comfortable XFR. I'm very happy with the car I have at the moment, which is a Rolls Royce.
What was the worst incident you saw where someone was injured in your whole time in SYTYCD? I didn't actually see it, but I think it was a young man called Emilio last year, he was accepted into the top 20, and on the first day got kicked in the face, and his nose was shattered. And he was replaced by Aaron, who did so well.
Be nice for a famous person to respond to my ama lol. Like your show! What made you decide to create it? We had been successful with singing, and American Idol. And Simon Fuller suggested that we do something similar with dancing. I didn't believe we would be as successful as we have been. However, I'm thrilled. At the time that I created it, dance was not happening with America. DWTS was not there, there wasn't a single dancing program on the networks, so I was not sure it would be successful. I think what people saw in it was how athletic you have to be in order to dance nowadays, how dancers are so passionate, and how creative the choreographers are.
What is your favorite dance/dance song? I think right now it's Happy by Pharrell, and Blurred Lines.
How well do you think you can Dance compared to the people on stage? I don't. The people on the stage are far better dancers than I am now, or ever was.
What is your guilty pleasure? Can't wait for SYTYCD! I've loved every season! I suppose it's Liverpool Football Club. And the Dodgers. Which is where I'm going now.
Do you keep in contact with some of the dancers that performed on this show? I only keep in contact when I see them at performances. I don't have personal contact with them.
There are some very talented dancers out there. Another question: What do you like to do for fun? Go and watch soccer, baseball, and play golf.
What is your favorite song to dance to? Blurred Lines.
Hey! My family are huge fans! No question; just send a shoutout to my wife, /usegingertiger? Hi gingertiger! I hope you're going to watch our premiere tomorrow night at eight o'clock on Fox!
I'm a Liverpool FC fan as well. What did you think of their performance this season? I thought Liverpool's performance was absolutely brilliant this season. I think if we improve our defense, we stand a very good chance of winning next year.
I will TOTALLY watch! I always do! The incredible athleticism of the men and women that are chosen for S.Y.T.Y.C.D. is something that inspires me, and makes me believe that anything is possible with enough effort. :) Excellent.
What is Victoria from Reddit like? She seems to handle a lot of this sort of business. She's brilliant, thank goodness for her.
What is your personal favorite style of dance? Ballet.
What has been your favorite dance ever on SYTYCD. That is too tough a question! I have so many favourites. I think Mia Michael's Bench Routine, Tyce D Orio's breast cancer routine, Chris Scott's sand routine, Nappy Tab's Putting on the Ritz single camera routine were all outstanding. And I'm sure I've forgotten many more that I absolutely loved.
How in the world are you able to sit next to that crazy lady that screams and yells all the time? I would want to shove a sock in her mouth. Is she paid extra to act like that? She speaks from the heart, her emotions she wears them on her sleeve, and she cares a great deal and is passionate about the dancers. That matters to me a great deal. I will put up with people yelling in my ear, if they care as much as Mary Murphy.
