The sixth season boasts tap, krump and married ballroom dancers but no ballet.
Viewers wondering how the Top 20 of "So You Think You Can Dance" look like need no guessing anymore. FOX has released the promotional shots of the 20 people who will begin competing with each other, together and separated by sex.
Just like in previous years, the 10 men and 10 women will be paired on the first day of their live performance. The judges for the October 27 episode would be Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, and Adam Shankman, the latest who has just been promoted to be a regular. Meanwhile, Mia Michaels who still had a say in the Las Vegas weeks, has stepped down from her position to pursue other projects.
For the first time in six years, the show has a married couple in the card. Ballroom dancer Ashleigh DiLello is married to the top 10 guys, Ryan DiLello. Ashleigh nearly missed the chance to be on the Top 20 if Paula van Open did not trade her eligibility with a movie contract.
On related news, it is said that Johnny Knoxville may be a guest judge on the show. Shankman revealed that the movie star sends him critiques after every show and emails him "these crazy critiques."
