Dance Watcher says
This is the worst idea SYTYCD ever had. I used to watch this show loyally until this year. It’s like FOX was looking for a reason to drop the ratings so they can comfortably cancel the show with supporting data. Put the show back in its original format – late teen and up boys versus girls who can start a career right after their time on the show. Poor decision making by FOX on this year’s format; very poor.
