SYTYCD Turns 10: Check Out Our Photo Album of All Its Past Champs!

If you’ve ever found yourself uttering some variation on the phrase, “Kids grow up too quickly nowadays!” we apologize for the following newsflash: So You Think You Can Dance premiered 10 years ago today, back on July 20, 2005.

Over that decade, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has made tons of tweaks to the formula — remember when Lauren Sánchez hosted for a season before Cat Deeley took over? — but the one constant has been the joy of watching incredibly talented kids bloom into stars as they tackle a wide range of dance styles.

To get you stoked for tonight’s 10-year anniversary special (8/7c on Fox) — which will feature live performances by some of the series’ favorite former contestants and choreographers, as well stage and street routines and musical productions from the show’s prior editions — we’ve put together a photo album of SYTYCD‘s champs from the past 11 seasons. There are 13 hoofers in all (accounting for the show naming male and female co-champs in Seasons 9 and 10), from Nick to Jeanine to Russell, plus Chehon, Melanie and more!
