So You Think You Can Dance
is dancing for its life this season that starts tonight at 8p on Fox, according to some of the Tweets that have been sent out by the Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe
. So I guess that is why the show is making some major changes this season. One of the things they are doing is asking for Dance Crews to compete for a chance to perform during the finale. While that really isn’t a reason for me to watch, the other big change is. Lythgoe Tweeted, “No judge saves from the Top10 this year! And back to only one winner! It will be a tough decision but it will be America’s.#Season11 #SYTYCD”. While I liked having a male and female winner, it is kind of nice only having one true champion. But the change I like most is that the Top 10 is back in our hands. I mostly disagree with the judges choices, so I am glad that they no longer have the power that they have had. Had they had the power during the second season, Benji Schwimmer never would’ve made it to the finals, let alone win the whole thing.
Now if SYTYCD really wants to get my viewership again, then have the judges keep their critiques to less than three sentences. I hate how much they talk about themselves or the choreographer or the past contestant, anything but the person competing. I really don’t care what they have to say, I am watching for the dancing not them.
Are you still watching? Did you watch and give it up? What would make you watch the once great show again?
