  • Had a really terrible day at work, this just cheered me up! Can’t wait for the new season, and I’m really curious to see the changes due to the results show getting axed. I’m happy about that particular change, I always ended up fast forwarding through most of it anyway!

    • I like Idol, but much prefer SYTYCD. Not sure exactly why– maybe part of it is that I get to watch it with my daughter most weeks. Maybe it’s the intensity of the process for the contestants. Probably it is mostly that dance is for me a much more dramatic art form with more creativity and more vulnerability. The only thing that tends to spoil the show for me is Nigel Lythgoe, the blathering big-ego brit. Mary is hard to take sometimes also. I would love all these shows more if they had more performance and less judging comments, except for ABDC where the judges are exceptional and the slo-mo replays are really helpful in understanding the just-seen performance.

  • Love it! I really wish that tvline had a show like Idology for SYTYCD. I know it’s not as popular as Idol, but my friends and I geek over this show so hard. I’ll keep hoping.

    • I know! I keep circling May 24th on every calendar I own. I am pretty bummed about the result show not being shown, to me it was always the best one around.

  • WOW, looks like it’s going to be even more exciting than past seasons. Can’t wait for it to start. Really sad though that the results show is not going to be on any more. Two days of SYTYCD is better than one with so much drivel on TV. SYTYCD is always something to look forward to. My ONLY complaint is that the season is to short!

  • Wow early start. Guessing since its 1 show a week its going to take longer to get through it. Take american idol not dance! 2 many singing shows.

  • I love this show, and will watch it for as long as it is on t.v., but I don’t really understand why the results show won’t be on. Are they going to have one? How will we know who wins? Help anyone???

    Comment by Bev Hunter – May 2, 2012 02:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Actually, It’s going to be like a “pack” show, everything will happen in the 2-hour-show, first the performances, then the elimination based on last week and this week performances. That’s what i understood, but i’m not sure.

  • LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show – absolutely cannot wait for the new season!! Every year the dancers just get better and better.

  • Sooooo excited. Got roped into watching with Season 5, but haven’t missed a show since. Even went out and… ahem, “tracked down” the first four seasons to watch. I feel so geeky (but proud) to know the difference between an Arabesque and an Arabesque penchée, and how a Quick Step should look. I can’t dance to save my life myself, but I never knew how much I would appreciate watching real talented dancers do it until I saw this show. Can’t wait!

  • I love this show so much, it always seems to be the perfect “pick me up” as others have said ( guess im not the only one). I have been waiting for what seems like forever, for the new season to start and now its coming. The next 22 days are going to seem like forever.

  • I have been in LOVE with SYTYCD from the beginning. Soooooooooo happy that season 9 is very close. Can’t wait. I even have all seasons on dvd. So when I need my fix, I just pop a season in and smile for the rest of the day. Why can’t the days go faster?

  • I am a Malaysia and have been watching all the 8 Seasons as we get to watch it much later. Melanie is someone I can’t get my mind around as Christina said when you watch her it gives hope to so many people and I don’t think there will ever be a dancer like her.

    I hoping though it will air earlier in Malaysia for this season ‘o)

  • I Love So you think you can Dance, I Think its about time they had one Male Best Dancer and one Female Best Dancer. The Dancers sure do work hard, I am sure they both can can share The Best Dancers.
