We had the pleasure of chatting with 'So You Think You Can Dance' Executive Producer and Judge 'Nigel Lythgoe' (CEO of Nigel Lythgoe Productions) this morning on the Get Up & Go Show.  Nigel called to chat about the Top 16 performing Wednesday night (7 pm central on Fox), and to remind us all that 'National Dance Day' is coming up this Saturday, July, 26th.

Nigel on his impressive career including his time at American Idol.

Additionally, Nigel was awarded the International Emmy Founders Award, presented to him in NYC by pop superstar Lady GaGa.  The award recognizes him for "his indelible imprint on the TV industry and body of work that crosses cultural boundaries and speaks to our common humanity."  Follow Nigel on Twitter for more information.
