After weeks of buildup, Katie Holmes’ song and dance number finally aired on So You Think You Can Dance tonight. So was it worth all the hype? And did it make me “Get Happy”? Uh, no.
Earlier this month, choreographer Tyce Diorio - a man who has worked with far more talented dancers - dared to call the pre-taped performance “Oscar-winning.”
“The thing that is so awesome is that you won’t know, you don’t know what to expect … but then when you sit and watch it, it’s amazing. Amazing! And it’s not something in my opinion that’s just going to be like ‘oh, how nice.’ It’s not going to be that … ‘oh, look how sweet that is.’ No, it’s real. It’s as real as what you’re seeing now. I’m very proud of it, so I talk really highly of Katie,” Tyce told People magazine.

UPDATE: It’s being reported that Katie Holmes will be doing a Judy Garland tribute.
She went from acting on the stage to doing a cabaret-esque number on Eli Stone. Now Katie Holmes is prepping to kick things up a notch.
According to multiple sources, the actress has been in secret rehearsals for an appearance on So You Think You Can Dance. Why Holmes? That part is not entirely clear. (Her Broadway stint didn’t exactly involve song or dance.) But it’s rumored that Katie may be one of several special guests turning up on the program’s 100th episode.
Although Nigel Lythgoe has confirmed meeting with the Mad Money star, he has not elaborated on what the one-on-one was about. Those in the know claim Katie has been privately “working with the choreographer Tyce Diorio” for a long time now. “She looks incredible. She is just doing an amazing job. Everyone is absolutely floored by how talented she is,” a source stated.
If all goes as (reportedly) planned, be sure to tune on July 8th.

Last January, the Screen Actors Guild Awards was considered a pleasant distraction from all the writers’ strike business. Since the actors now face their own work stoppage, this year’s event once again served as a nice diversion.
With the Academy Awards less than a month away, tonight’s ceremony gave us a better idea of how that broadcast might pan out. Was Kate Winslet another double-winner this evening? Did Mickey Rourke wrestle an additional victory? Is Heath Ledger on his way to that posthumous Oscar? Get all the details after the jump!
We’ve seen the flippy hair and we’ve seen the cabaret-esque poses, but we really didn’t know what to expect from Katie Holmes’ Eli Stone number until now.
In the following clip, Holmes’ character interrupts Eli’s jog with her rendition of “Hit Me with a Hot Note.” Preview her performance and let us know what you think. Does the Mad Money star have a future in musicals ahead of her? Or should singing and dancing be left to Tom Cruise’s last wife?
Katie’s guest appearance on Eli Stone is scheduled to air on October 21.

Although Katie Holmes is currently in the middle of her Broadway debut in All My Sons, the new stage actress will be saving her singing and dancing for the small screen.
On the October 21 episode of Eli Stone, Holmes will be reteaming with exec producer Greg Berlanti (also a Dawson’s Creek vet) for quite an interesting challenge. In reality, she will be playing a non-profit lawyer. In someone’s fantasy, she’ll become…a cabaret singer? (You can see more pics from her cameo after the jump.)

Five years after moving on from Joey Potter, Katie Holmes has decided to make a more mature return to TV. On ABC’s Eli Stone, the actress will play a non-profit lawyer who eventually connects with Jonny Lee Miller. The one-episode stint will reunite Holmes with exec producer Greg Berlanti, another Dawson’s Creek vet.
Katie’s small screen role won’t be the only non-film project for her this year. She is currently in rehearsals for her September Broadway debut.
I guess it’s in Holmes’ best interest to keep busy. Otherwise, she’ll sit around wondering why she didn’t participate in The Dark Knight.
