    The ninth season of So You Think You Can Dance starts on May 24, 8/7c on FOX.

    Here’s a promo for the new season:

    Nygel tweeted at the beginning of the year that Fox had opted to get rid of the results show……

    I wonder how they are going to change the format of the show.

    Yes, the show will air one episode per week. It will be interesting to see how they’ll do it. 

    Here’s what Nigel said in an interview after the announcement:
    ” […] Lythgoe hinted at a format where each week’s episode is ended with the revelation of the bottom 3 couples (based on the votes from the previous week) but after all the dancers had performed the new week’s routine, given the judges an additional routine to take into account when deciding which dancers (from amongst the bottom 3) to save and which to send home for that week.”

    It’s a little bit complicated but they will explain it so we can understand.

    I think the only problems are going to be:
    One, how do they squeeze everything into two hours in the first couple of live weeks;
    Two, how do they show all of the auditions plus Vegas Week and still end the series by September 12?

    The way Nigel described it, it sounds like:
    Live week 1 – 10 couples perform
    Live week 2 – 10 couples perform again; at the end, they announce the bottom 3 couples, and the judges make their eliminations (this is the part where they may need quite a bit of editing in order to fit it into two hours)
    Live weeks 3-6 – same as week 2, except only 9, 8, 7, 6 couples perform
    Live week 7 – bring on the all-stars, but, in true SYTYCD tradition, don’t mention their last names – unless it’s Chelsie Hightower (or, presumably, anybody else who has also been on DWTS).  Considering that Alex Wong has been on Smash quite a bit, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as an all-star.
    Live weeks 8-13 – 9, 8, 7, 6 ,5, 4 contestants remain

    Even if you air the results show the day after the last performance, instead of waiting a week, they have to squeeze in the auditions.  If the 13th live Wednesday show is 9/12, the first one is 6/20, which means they only have four weeks (May 24 and 30, June 6 and 13) for the auditions and Vegas Week.

    Well, last year the did 3 weeks of auditions and one of Vegas Week. Also they have always eliminated 2 dancers per week, so (as last year) they will have only 10 live shows including the finale. That means that the show will be pretty much be the same.

    I think it will be like this:
    3 Auditions episodes (NY, LA, Dallas, Atlanta, Salt Lake City)
    Vegas Week
    Live Show 1 – Meet the Top 20 – performances
    Live Show 2 – Top 20 – performances & eliminations
    Live Show 3 – Top 18 – performances & eliminations
    Live Show 4 – Top 16
    Live Show 5 – Top 14 
    Live Show 6 – Top 12
    Live Show 7 – Top 10 – including from now all-stars
    Live Show 8 – Top 8
    Live Show 9 – Top 6
    Finale – Top 4 (which could be one week or maybe they will do one part for performances and the second week its result)

    That means that by August 16 or August 23 the show will be over.

    Here’s another article about how will this new season be.

    I’m all for the 2 winners decisions.

    Agree! She’s, in my opinion, a better host than all the others men. I wish she could take that Emmy!

    Here’s another article about how will this new season be.

    Here are some quotes from the article:

    Lythgoe says that Episode 1 will be a standard performance show. The
    following week, for Episode 2, all of the Season 9 dancers will perform
    again, but they might get some bad news during their critiques. “We
    might end up saying, this routine wasn’t your best, and that’s
    unfortunate, because based on America’s vote last week, you are in the
    Bottom 3,” Lythgoe explains. The reason that info will be held until after
    a routine is because “we don’t want the [at-risk] contestants to be
    panicking [when they dance].”

    Does this mean the dancers are in some soundproof room until they perform?  If not, then the last couple that dances will know before they perform if they’re in the bottom three.

    Lythgoe says that if he and his fellow panelists
    need more information, they reserve the right to ask the dancers to
    perform solos. “We need to be as flexible as possible,” he reasons.

    Why do I interpret that as, “We need to be able to pad the show if necessary to fill the full two hours”?

    Then again, they would be taking a chance – what if somebody they want to put through blows their solo?

    For no particular reason. It’s just so long and arcane that I had to check what it meant. 

    Not very constructive, I know.

    Here’s another question about the new one-show-per-week format:

    Is the show going to have to eliminate intact couples before they get to the final 10?

    If they don’t, then how do they handle something like this:
    In weeks 1 and 2, couples Xm-Xf and Ym-Yf dance.
    At the end of week 2, Xm and Yf are eliminated.
    The other eight couples remain intact, and Ym is now partnered with Xf to be the ninth couple.
    One small problem: how do you vote for this couple, seeing as how they didn’t perform together?

    I can think of three possibilities off the top of my head:
    (a) I assume the “live” shows will actually be pre-recorded (among other things, they need to be edited to fit into the time slot), so after the elimination is announced, the “new” couple can be taught a routine and then perform it, which would air at the end of the show; the voters could base their votes on that;
    (b) The new couple is automatically put into the bottom 3 (or possibly 4);
    (c) There will be a phone number assigned to the couple, even though they don’t perform together that night.

    Something I noticed in the first episode; in the past, the choreographers for the choreography rounds would have been introduced as “Season 7’s Robert and Season 4’s Courtney” – for some reason, they don’t use last names (mainly because they don’t use them on the show except during the early audition rounds), except when Chelsie Hightower was an All-Star partner for one show – but now it’s “Robert Roldan” and “Courtney Galiano”.
