The kids are taking over So You Think You Can Dance on FOX this summer, as SYTYCD Season 13 will be called So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation and feature dancers between the ages of 8 and 13! That is beyond intense and I am still unsure of this format, but FOX thinks it will work and is giving it a go! Check out the So You Think You Can Dance 2016 spoilers below for the details!
We reported on this earlier about the rumors of a junior edition happening this summer. FOX has had a lot of success with MasterChef Junior and Lifetime is enjoying success with Project Runway Junior right now, so they want to keep giving us these kids and now it turns to the dancers!
While the rumors have been going around for SYTYCD 2016, FOX confirmed it in this press release:
FOX has renewed the Emmy Award-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE (SYTYCD) for a 13th season that will feature a younger generation of dancers. This season, dancers between the ages of 8-13, who are skilled in various dance styles, such as contemporary, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, animation or breaking, will be paired up with All-Stars to compete for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer. Premiering Monday, May 30 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, the new season of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: THE NEXT GENERATION will feature returning host Cat Deeley and returning judges Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo.”
So, the kids will be paired with an All-Star dancer still? Won’t that be a little awkward for most routines? It is nice to see that everyone else is returning, but I am still hesitant on this one. I will still watch, of course!
