What’s New In Season 12 of ‘So You Think You Can Dance?” Check It Out!

Jason DeRulo and Paula Abdul join Nigel Lythgoe (r) on 'SYTYCD' in Season 12 (Fox)

It’s almost time for the twelfth season of Fox’s long-running dance competition series, “So You Think You Can Danceseason to kick off but there are some differences this season.

First off, co-creator/executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is still anchoring the judges’ table but this year he’ll be joined by singer/dancer/choreographer Paula Abdul and singer/dancer Jason DeRulo. And, of course, Emmy-nominated Cat Deeley returns as host of the show.

Also, the auditions are kicking off with a change, too, as there will be immediate competition between the Stage and Street teams. Stage will be led by choreographer/dancer/former ‘SYTYCD’ contestant Travis Wall and the Street side led by actor/dancer/All-Star (and DJ on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘) Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss.

Check out the videos with Stage and Street contestants:
