Watch So You Think You Can Dance Online - Full Episodes
In the summer of 2005, the reality television show So You Think You Can Dance aired on the Fox network. The show's creators are the same team that brought American Idol to the television screens of millions of viewers.
The first season's host was Lauren Sánchez, but when season two began, the show had a new host named Cat Deeley, who is still hosting the show today. The reality series is currently in its ninth season.
Each year the show begins with the audition episodes, which allows viewers to see the dancers as they try out for the show. The producers include several of the bad auditions for the viewing pleasure of the television audience. If a dancer impresses the judges, then they receive an airline ticket to the Las Vegas tryouts. However, when a dancer is good, but not great, they receive the chance to dance the choreography round for a ticket.
Once the show enters the Las Vegas auditions, the competition becomes brutal as each dancer must prove his or her proficiency in numerous dance styles. The judges review the dancers as they perform choreographed routines in the dance styles of hip-hop, contemporary, ballroom and jazz.
The judges narrow down the group of dancers to fewer than 40 competitors. One by one, the dancers must face the judges to hear their fate. After the last cutback, the show presents 20 dancers made up of 10 girls and 10 boys.
Once the judges select the 20 dancers, the show shifts into its traditional competition round as the dancers are paired up. In some seasons, the judges select the dancing pairs, and in other seasons, the dancers randomly select their partners. The show has also brought back old favorites to dance with the current season's dancers and switched partners from week to week.
The dancers perform one to two choreographed numbers each week, and once they've finished their routines, the judges give them feedback. The entire audience may vote for their favorite dancers including the viewers at home. During the show's second night, the three girls and the three boys with the fewest votes must dance for the judges to remain on the show. The judges then select one boy and one girl to go home.
Once the number of dancers is 10, the boy and the girl with the lowest number of audience votes must leave the competition. The audience also chooses the final winner. So You Think You Can Dance features unique choreography and remarkable dancing, which encourages viewers to watch the show each week.
