Season 18 of 'SYTYCD' introduces an all-new format.
For its 18th season, this smash-hit reality competition is shaking things up big time! They're introducing a brand-new format, and the judges — featuring the likes of Allison Holker, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and JoJo Siwa— are stepping up to mentor dancers from every corner of the country.
These dancers are more ready to show off their skills in an eclectic mix of dance styles, from contemporary to tap to hip-hop and beyond. And guess what? The multi-talented SYTYCD All-Star Comfort Fedoke is hopping on board the judging panel for the audition rounds!
In the official press release, Fox announced that Season 18 of SYTYCD will be injecting the long-running hit show with a brand-new format that mirrors "the authentic experience of building a successful career in dance, as so many So You Think You Can Dance alums have."
Each week, the contestants will dive headfirst into all-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." And when the dust settles, it's in the hands of our esteemed judges to determine their fate.
With eliminations looming every week, the pressure is on, especially since only the top three finalists will make it to the highly-anticipated finale. But in the end, only one dancer will emerge victorious, seizing the $100,000 grand prize and the prestigious title of So You Think You Can Dance champion.
Catch the Season 18 premiere of So You Think You Can Dance on Monday, March 4, at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.
