After big drops in the ratings, it looked like So You Think You Can Dance might be cancelled last year. FOX renewed the program but the focus has shifted to young dancers — So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation. Will this change bring in a bigger audience or will the ratings drop lower? Will it be renewed for a 14th season? Stay tuned.
Hosted by Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance is a competition that pits dancers (now ages 8-13) of various backgrounds against one another to become “America’s Favorite Dancer.” They are partnered with “all-star” dancers from past season. Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo return as regular judges. They are joined by 13-year-old judge Maddie Ziegler (Dance Moms).

If it aint broke why fix it? Whatever happened to the good ole days when there were 10 boys and 10 girls competing with one another as partners? It seems now that too much attention is on the all stars!! Hello all stars..u had ur day but every season it seems it is getting to the point where the all stars are just as prevalent as the competitors. Its like Nigel said last nite to Jenna his eyes were glued to her and not on the one he should be looking at. Excuse me Nigel aren’t u one of the… Read more »
Why does Mary Murphy need to always scream? It’s not pleasant to listen to! Was nice last season without her there, my ears were a lot happier. LOVE the show but may have to stop watching as I get a head ache every episode listening to her. Vanessa is a great addition. Contestants are fabulous and talented!
The show should definitely be renewed! but not in the youngster format – I just didn’t care for it! The arts are exceptionally important in any culture and not to bring back such an important show as sytycd in the old format, would almost be an abomination!

Bring back the old format … I never missed one single… Read more »
