So You Think You Can Dance: Season 12's Judges (and Mentors) Get Glam!

So You Think

It’s the promise of a new day as So You Think You Can Dance enters its 12th season (Monday, June 1 at 8/7c on Fox) — and yes, of course, that’s a reference to Paula Abdul’s delectable 1991 chart-topper.

Indeed, the “Straight Up” singer (and R&B vocalist Jason Derulo) are joining executive producer Nigel Lythgoe on the show’s judging panel this year — and we’ve got your first look at their official portrait (alongside Emmy-nominated host Cat Deeley).

We’ve also got an image of Season 12 mentors (and SYTYCD grads) Travis Wall and Stephen “Twitch” Boss, whose new roles are part of a “Stage Vs. Street” twist for the show’s upcoming installment. Contestants from the contemporary, ballet, jazz and tap worlds will be separated from hip-hop, animation and breaking experts, with one dancer from each genre getting eliminated each week leading up to the season finale.

Check out the official promo images below — and take our poll to tell us how you feel about the new panel!
