SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Shakes Things Up For Season 7

Adam Shankman, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe

Are you ready for Season 7 of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE? Well, brace yourself because this season, the show will shake things up a bit.

This season only 10 dancers (five guys and five girls) will be selected to compete for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer. During the performance rounds, only one finalist will be sent home weekly. But that’s not all, the competitors will be partnered each week with a former So You Think You Can Dance finalist, skilled in various styles of dance, including ballroom, hip-hop, jazz and contemporary. Fox will announce the partners soon.

So to put in simple terms, So You Think You Can Dance is becoming Fox’s answer to ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, except that instead of stars we’ll get actual trained dancers.

I’m not sure how I feel about this change yet because they are changing what I loved about So You Think You Can Dance, but at the same time it will be fun to see some of the previous finalists back on stage. So I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance will have its two-hour premiere on Thursday, May 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
