As we count the minutes until Eliana Girard or Tiffany Maher and Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer or Chehon Wespi-Tschopp are crowned "America's Favorite Dancer" on tonight's season finale of "So You Think You Can Dance," we thought it might be nice to pass the time in style.
And, by style, we mean all kinds of dance styles in all kinds of movies.
Some of our favorite all-stars and other "SYTYCD" contestants have landed on the big screen over the years, and we're sure hoping some of the Season 9 gang will soon join them.
Seeing as Season 6 finalist Kathryn McCormick recently starred in the fourth installment of the "Step Up" franchise (alongside Stephen "tWitch" Boss and Phillip Chbeeb, natch), now seemed as good a time as any to take a look at how some of our favorite "SYTYCD" stars are blowing up Hollywood. Put some boogie shoes on your fingertips and click away to see for yourself.

"I really love 'Seven Pounds' with Will Smith. I remember that was a movie where I could not stop crying when I was watching it. And I think just the fact that the thought behind his whole process, just really wanting to make people's lives greater, there's so much beauty in that, and I have huge respect for that.
"I just really enjoyed it and connected to that. So, I love movies that leave you a better person."
Kathryn McCormick first danced her way into our hearts as the third place finalist on Season 6 of "So You Think You Can Dance," and she continued to dazzle us with her contemporary dancing as an All-Star on Season 7 of the Fox dance competition. As if learning a couple crazy-hard dance routines every week weren't enough for McCormick, she has now taken on a new challenge: dancing and acting as the lead in "Step Up Revolution."
In this fourth installment of the "Step Up" franchise, McCormick plays Emily, a young woman who lands in Miami with dreams of becoming a professional dancer. Soon, she falls in love with Sean (Ryan Guzman), the leader of a dance crew called The Mob. When Emily's father (Peter Gallagher) decides to turn The Mob's neighborhood into a commercial development, the couple must choose between their love for each other and staying loyal to their respective families. Plus, there's no shortage of the spectacular dance routines we've come to know and love from this series.
McCormick let her feet rest for a bit to talk to us about her first movie role, her acting dreams and who she thinks is going to win this season of "So You Think You Can Dance." Get More »
Flash mobs. They're everywhere now, and they've taken over the venerable "Step Up" franchise, causing a dance insurgence leading to "Step Up Revolution."
This fourth entry in the series that proves hot models can do anything if they put their bodies to it follows talented dancer Emily (Kathryn McCormick), who falls in love with footloose Sean (Ryan Guzman). Together they and their group of dancing Che Guevaras lead a fight to save their neighborhood.
If you've sat in the theater or at home watching the unforgettable dancing in the "Step Up" movies thinking, "I can do that," now's the time to show your stuff.

Whether you've been taking dance classes since before you could walk or just do the occasional worm at the clubs, you can try to be a part of this music video and bring your "Step Up" viewing experience to the next level. Get More »
The big finale of "American Idol"'s 11th season is finally upon us this week, and we noticed that this year's two finalists look as cut out for the camera as they do for the stage (hello Phillip Phillips!).
It certainly doesn't hurt that so many "Idol" alums before them have successfully launched from the show's giant platform into the world of film.
In fact, there have been a lot of reality stars in general who've made a name in the movie scene. Here are our top 15. Get More »
So you think you can dance… the Nutcracker?
Director, choreographer and "So You Think You Can Dance" judge Adam Shankman is dancing so fast from project to project that we're a little dizzy. With "Rock of Ages" in the can, Shankman's quickly moving on to another, albeit more old-fashioned, stage and screen favorite: "The Nutcracker."
Inevitably (and thankfully), this round will have a different flavor than last year's Razzie nominee with Elle Fanning, Nathan Lane and John Turturro, which took Tchaikovsky's music and story and gave it a healthy (read: creepy) dose of weird CGI and 3-D. Get More »
