"So You Think You Can Dance 2016" (SYTYCD) has kept viewers amazed and inspired as talented dancers compete to be named America's Favorite Dancers.

The Emmy Award-nominated hit dance competition series features host Cat Deeley and resident judges Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul and Jason Derülo.

Season 13, "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation," will feature a younger generation of dancers. This season, dancers between the ages of 8-13, who are skilled in various dance styles, such as Contemporary, Tap, Hip-Hop, Ballroom, Animation or Breaking, will be paired up with All-Stars to compete for the title of America's Favorite Dancer.

During nationwide auditions, the most talented next generation of dancers will compete in front of the judges for a place at "The Academy," where only the best of the best will be selected for the next round of competition. At the end of the round, the Top 10 dancers will be partnered permanently with a SYTYCD All-Star. The competition then moves on to the "SYTYCD" studio, where the top youngsters will compete each week in a variety of styles, working and performing alongside their All-Stars with world-renowned choreographers. One young contestant will go home each week until a winner is named on the season finale.

In September, Gaby Diaz was named the Season 12 winner during the live two-hour season finale. Miami native Diaz, 19, received the most votes and danced off with the cash prize of $250,000, the cover of Dance Spirit magazine and the chance to dance with Jennifer Lopez at her residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino. Diaz also joined the rest of the Top 10 for the "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 12 Live Tour, which ended its run Thursday, January 28 at the Théatre St-Denis in Montreal, Quebec.

Other past winners include Ricky Ubeda, Amy Yakima & Du-Shaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall, Eliana Girard & Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, Melanie Moore, Lauren Froderman, Russell Ferguson, Jeanine Mason, Joshua Allen, Sabra Johnson, Benji Schwimmer and Nick Lazzarini.

serge says:
Well What a bad choice from two of the judges Chistina should of staid
sandra says:
so very disappointed with this years shows format. prefer former years,
dlanders says:
My husband and I feel that the judges are not being fair with their comments. They say they are giving critique to help the contestants grow and that is fine if the comments are just that. But when Mia says that the routine was missing Alex and she wanted to see him in the routine that is not helping Adecheke grow. We miss Mary and feel that an ego is very present in Mia and she likes to hear herself talk.
xxx23 says:
I believe that Mia comments regarding Adechike were harsh and unprofessional. Does she have a problem with Afro American men. Last year, she clearly showed great dislike for another Afro American dancer. Cat remarks were great, and I applaud her for taking a stand against such outlandish criticism.
