So you think you can shake “Dance” up?


Well, “So You Think You Can Dance” fans, are you shocked?

I must admit, as I don’t regularly watch the dance competish, I don’t have much of an opinion about these changes. Here’s the gist of the switcheroo this summer, from Fox’s press release this morning:

This year, the competition is the toughest it has ever been as the judges will pick only 10 dancers (five guys and five girls) – from the thousands that auditioned – to compete for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer. During the performance rounds, one finalist will go home weekly. Additionally, the competitors will be partnered each week with a different SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All-Star dancer – former SYTYCD finalists who are skilled in various styles of dance, including ballroom, hip-hop, jazz and contemporary. The All-Star Partners will be announced shortly.

It sounds similar to something “Survivor” tried a few years ago, when it mixed new contestants with former ones. In this case, though, the All-Star partners aren’t competing for an actual prize.

The two-hour season seven premiere of “So You Think You Can Dance” airs Thursday, May 27 at 8 p.m.
