Created by 19 Entertainment and dick clark productions, “So You Think You Can Dance” (SYTYCD) airs on FOX and is the No. 1 rated summer show in America.
The Emmy Award-nominated hit dance competition series will welcome world-renowned choreographer, performer, singer and songwriter Paula Abdul and singer/songwriter/dancer Jason Derulo to join Nigel Lythgoe at the judges’ table, alongside returning host Cat Deeley, for the 12th season of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.
Each show features breathtaking performances in the genres of hip/hop, traditional, ballroom, contemporary, and jazz as well as suspenseful eliminations, as contestants compete to be named America’s Favorite Dancers. The upcoming season will feature a new twist in the competition: stage dancers vs. street dancers.
