Auditions Begin For New Season of So You Think You Can Dance

at . Comments

Fresh off a sold-out, cross-country performance tour, So You Think You Can Dance has begun another search for America's favorite dancer.

The auditions kicked off in New York City, with the hit reality TV series preparing to kick off its third season this summer on FOX.

Season 3 is Coming

The hot series from the producers of American Idol and American Bandstand is hosted by Cat Deeley, one of the UK's top television personalities, as well as a correspondent for The Tonight Show and Good Morning America.

Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer of both American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, will return as producer - and head judge - this summer.

Last summer, with the networks absolutely buried in reality TV show options, So You Think You Can Dance emerged as the surprise #1 program.

In its third campaign, it promises to keep America marching to a different beat, as dancers skilled in everything from the "street" styles of hip-hop, krumping and popping to "the best of ballroom" - salsa, quickstep, jive and more - compete to be named America's favorite.
