Here's a compare and contrast moment if I've ever seen one.
Remember when judges on "So You Think You Can Dance" made snide remarks about a same-sex couple who did a ballroom dance together? Judge and executive director, Nigel Lithgoe, ended up making an apology via GLAAD.
Lithgoe was also executive producer for American Idol for several years. Idol has become famous for the back-and-forth banter between judge Simon Cowell and host Ryan Seacrest - especially the snide innuendoes about Seacrest's sexual orientation. Judges also regularly put down non-gender conforming potential contestants who audition in the show's infamous tryouts.
On the other hand, there's "Dancing With the Stars." The show's cast recently danced on a float in New York City's gay pride parade. They did a show online a few months ago called "Dancing With the Drag Stars" that featured celebrity judges like Bruce Vilanch and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
But their latest nod to the LGBT community has my head spinning like Cloris Leachman doing the cha cha. Check it out after the jump.
