Hopefully it’s better than season 16 but knowing Nigel, I have no faith.

 

I always expect horrible things from Nigel LOL.

Well yeah. He casts dancers right out of high school, makes them to pretend to be in a showmance while ignoring Slavessy’s actual romance and then hits on whichever blonde female is in the finale.

Going into this season with #lowstandards is the only thing to do after an awful season 16. :haha:

Nigel said something about wanting to do a Top 20 for this season during Season 16. I thought it was weird that he presumed the show would be renewed for Season 17 when the past few seasons have been up in the air until the last minute. Maybe with DWTS switching to once a year and World of Dance happening on NBC, Fox wanted to keep SYTYCD going for a while longer.

He usually knows early on since they have to negotiate things. They just usually don’t announce it for a while.

Official press release came out today and apparently is teasing new twists for S17. 😐

 

Maybe the new twist is that there is no twist, because that would be a twist.

 

Also:

 

"Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Laurieann Gibson are slated to return as judges, and Cat Deely will be back as host. Season 16 judge (and Season 3 contestant) Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval will not return to the judging panel, TVLine has confirmed."

Online only auditions?


We're about to just start the season with a Top 20, tbh.


That would be preferable lol.

Current speculation is that S17 will now be delayed until 2021 entirely.

That seems to be the only reasonable course of action.

Those poor 18-year-olds will have to wait until they have some life experience before they can dance in contemporary routines that Nigel hails as a gift to dance. :broken:

Gonna have to find a way to make this forum more active now that we have no new season to discuss. :haha:

We can just do a rewatch of S16 :wub:

...Said no one ever.

 

The article mentions Nigel's idea of just airing "best of" episodes this summer. That'd be nice to remember the good days of SYTYCD :wub: Until most of the clips come from S3. 🤮

Just read on another forum season 17 has been cancelled. Production is hoping SYTYCD will be picked up again by FOX in 2021. I would post a link to the article but Internet my internet is out and I have no idea how to post a link on my iPhone.  
 

I guess Nigel’s idea of having a competition between dances and dancers from previous seasons didn’t fly with the FOX TPTB ☹️
