"So You Think You Can Dance" Audition Tour Kicks Off

January 22, 2015

A new season of “So You Think You Can Dance” is just around the corner, and the search for contestants begins this Saturday in New York City. “SYTYCD” is back for its 12th season, but with a brand new format. Contestants will be placed into one of two categories—street or stage—and of the Top 20, 10 will be street dancers and 10 will be stage dancers. Every week, a dancer from each category will be eliminated until the season finale, in which either a studio or street dancer will be announced the winner. With the new format comes a new panel of judges: Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo will join Nigel Lythgoe, while longtime judge Mary Murphy has stepped down. The show will premiere on TV this summer.
