Katie Holmes was back again as a guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance? this week. The actress, mother and designer said to the other judges, “I’m so excited to be back. I love these dancers and I love you and congratulations on your Emmy nomination!”
But it was her daughter, Suri, who seemed the most excited to be there. Suri was dressed up in a little black dancer’s outfit and sat in the audience with friends holding up a big “We Heart Katie” sign during the show.
The mother-daughter duo, who are normally inseparable, constantly blew kisses and waved at each other during the commercial breaks. According to a set insider, “Suri clapped extra loud and had a huge smile on her face when the host Cat Deeley announced Katie onstage. You could tell she was so proud of her mom.”
The tiny dancer was incredibly well-behaved and sat through almost the entire show without fidgeting before running up onstage at the end to join her mom. Suri danced around on the side of the stage with her nanny while Katie kissed and hugged Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy at the end of the night. But probably the most exciting part of the night for the So You Think You Can Dance? dancers? Tom Cruise made a quick appearance to support his wife before ducking backstage!
