Katie Holmes: 'So You Think You Can Dance' Guest Judge!

Katie Holmes and director Kenny Ortega give a standing ovation during the live taping of So You Think You Can Dance on Wednesday (August 10) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old actress, wearing a Lacoste + Malandrino Pointelle Polo dress, served as a guest judge for the top 4 performances along with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy.

Before the show went on the air, Katie ran into the audience to give her 5-year-old daughter Suri, who held a sign that read, “We Love You Katie, a hug!

People also reports Suri munched on a gigantic cookie and danced in her seat to the music, while older brother Connor Cruise sat with friends in a nearby row.

The winner of this season’s SYTYCD will be announced TONIGHT at 8 p.m. on Fox!

    Yeah. People Mag also said food wasn’t allowed in the audience…so as usual Suri gets away with “it” because her parents are actors.

    Katie suc-ked big time as a judge. Woman couldn’t string two words together. Sounded illiterate with all her pauses, ums, ers, and inane comments. Used amazing and magical to describe Marko. Used amazing several times. She says she takes dance several times a week. Yet her comments centered on the clothes and shoes and outward appearance of the dancers. She couldn’t say anything intelligent about the dance moves, choreography (except to tell one of the choreographers she put an amazing routine together), or any of the moves.

    This woman needs to stay home.

    She is not the best commentator on performance. She doesn’t seem very bright. It seems difficult for her to have an original thought.

    Katie Holmes was trending on Twitter much of last night/this morning. People were stunned/horrified at what they were seeing re her “judging.”

    She was really horrible last night. Not only are those watching horrified, bloggers, other dancers and many media outlets are also “atwitter” with amazement at her awesomely bad performance.

    @Bandolino: What? The food wasn’t allowed in the audiaence because Suri was there? WTF? She is not a president’s child!

    No, no food is allowed in the audience at all. People had in parenthesis (despite a rule prohibiting food in the audience) – Suri was allowed to have a cookie.

    Clearer now?

    Bandolino Says:


    No food is allowed in the audience-period. Suri was the exception.

    @dani: Yeah it is. Thanks for clearing up!

    This simple-minded slowbrain is no dancer, and is a lousy parent. She has no intelligence whatsoever. I guess that’s why Tom chose her; he knows he couldn’t mold a smart woman into what he wants.

    ilieana Says:

    Probably her wn dance teachers are **ss kissers, and hey probably tell to her WOW, to every lousy movement. I saw her at the Jay Leno show, at the end with the Serbian dance, and I know she wasn’t ready, but it was painful towatch. really pathetic.
    Just as her designing clothes, she probably enjoys it, good for her, but PLEASE do not do around buying gigs as if you were A) an actual stylish clothes designer B)A runner C)A dancer talented enough to JUDGE.
    Tom willprobably get her some acting gigs, hey, she had those since before transforming in the first lady of scientology, but please, spare us!!!

    Michelle Says:

    Katie was a horrible judge on SYTYCD. And people had some nasty things to say about Gaga. I mean at least Gaga made sense on her judging of the dance routines. Remember years about she tried to sing and dance on SYTYCD and that was just as bad.. She didn’t even need to be there since her comments weren’t worthwhile to listen to.. You could tell by the reaction of the audience and the choreographers and dancers when she spoke. Kenny Ortega was a great judge on the show and everyone was thrilled he was judging last night.

    Cat Says:

    She was an awful judge- why did they ask her to be part of the panel. Dreadful!

    sia Says:

    what an insult to the dancers….serious,talented, hardworking dancers, to be judged by katie! these people are working so hard for their big break, they want and deserve good, instructive criticism that will help them..katie is in no way qualified just because she takes dance classes and likes to dance!!! RIDICULOUS

    teddie Says:

    I like fashion and enjoy sewing, but that doesn;t make me a professional designer; I like to dance but that doesn;t mean I can judge and critique other dancers more talented than I.

    Somehow Katie (and Tom) hasn’t realized this,

    marq Says:

    Like all of you nurture so well. Like you are the very fans to inspire Katie to encourage Suri to stick with gymnastics and dance for, as Tiffany Billings puts it, “the twenty-thousand studio hours before your 19th birthday.”

    Who here can even name any dancers? Here’s one, at random:

    hey nitwit marq Says:

    It isn’t OUR JOB to encourage Katie to inspire Suri. Doesn’t look like she needs help since according to Katie, Suri is amazing and magical in everything she does. Seems like katie has been indulged and been made to think she is good at things she really isnt very good at, at all. Now suri is going to be the next one to use Tom’s connections and money to get her parts and gigs or jobs that she is not qualifide for.

    And I don’t know a lot of dancers, but I know a few, and KATIE is not one of them.

    poor tom and katie Says:

    they are going to be very disappointed if Suri grows up to be average, like her mother.

    Bella wants to be magical,too Says:

    What a farce!

    lala Says:

    katie homes drinking game: every time she says amazing, magical and strong; everytime she turns around and mentions the choreographers name; everytime she says the dancers are great together; everytime she reads her notes. call the ambulance beforehand to treat everyone for alcohol poisoning and possible death from self-strangulation.

    @Marq Says:

    I took dance for ten years–grammar school and middle school. I could have done better than Katie.

    And as another poster mentioned, it isn’t our job to nurture Suri. To encourage Suri. To develop Suri’s talents.

    It is Katie’s.

    And as for naming dancers, I bet I can out name you when it comes to ballet, theater, and jazz dancers. Others–well quite frankly I don’t care.

    marq Says:

    Suri will benefit through nepotism? Of course she will have opportunities come her way by virtue of her prominent parents. But not a sure thing? Her very name connotes her success, a sure thing, in her own right.

    Posts about her are already a joy.

    marq Says:

    @@”Marq”: By all means, please drop some favorite names. (I’ve traveled internationally with a dance troupe as part of production, not talent, although I did get to chat with Russian and Cuban dance directors.)

    I have much respect for the hours you indicate you have put in to dance. Please do say, although if you envoke my nick again, I don’t pretend to be a dancer, I washed out of dance class at age 10, but with a single plaque to commemorate my efforts..
