[ # ] Maksim Chmerkovskiy goes from DWTS to SYTYCD
December 5th, 2023 under SYTYCD

Tonight is the season finale of Dancing with the Stars on ABC, and Fox decided to announce that So You Think You Can Dance will be back for its 18th season on Monday, March 4th.

If that is not a big enough fuck you to ABC, then finding out that Maksim Chmerkovskiy is joining the judges’ table is doing just that.

Who else would prefer to watch Maks over Derek Hough as a judge on DWTS? I know I can’t be alone. And now I will be watching him on SYTYCD.

The news gets even better. Fox screwed up and asked Nigel Lythgoe not to return for season 17. But they realized their fuck up and are bringing him back.

The two men will be joined by former contestant Allison Holker. Her late husband was a judge on season 17. So this will be a tribute to Twitch.

The judges’ table is not the only thing changing. So is the former. Each week, contestants will compete in new, intense dance challenges that will give them a real taste of the career, from performing in a music video or a football halftime show to going toe-to-toe on stage with a Broadway performer. In the end, it will be up to the judges to decide their fate. Eliminations will take place weekly, with the Top 3 finalists competing in the season’s spectacular finale, but only one will win the $100,000 grand prize and the highly coveted title of So You Think You Can Dance champion.

And for those of you wondering if Cat Deeley will be back? Yes, she will be!

I hope SYTYCD finds a new audience to watch the series along with its loyal fans. Because this sounds like it is the adrenaline shot the dancing competition needed.
