So You Think You Can Dance is back for another season this summer, Celeb Secrets can confirm.
The news was released earlier today (February 16) via press release, which also shared that Emmy Award winner Nigel Lythgoe, award-winning choreographer Mary Murphy and award-winning actress, singer and dancer Vanessa Hudgens will return as resident judges on the series, hosted by Emmy Award nominee Cat Deeley.
“It’s incredible to make it to 15 seasons, which just speaks to the impact this program has had, not only on the world of dance, but also on our loyal fans and viewers, to whom we are most grateful,” added executive producer Nigel Lythgoe.
While there’s no set date for its premiere, Celeb Secrets can confirm that auditions will be taking place this spring in two locations — New York (March 2) and Los Angeles (TBA). All potential contestants should register online at soyouthinkyoucandance2018.
During the audition rounds, the most talented dancers will compete in front of the judges for a coveted spot at “The Academy” callback rounds in Los Angeles. At the end of “The Academy” callback rounds, the judges will choose this season’s top dancers to move on in the competition. Those who are selected to move on to the SYTYCD studio will work with world-renowned choreographers and compete LIVE each week for America’s votes in a variety of styles. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.
