"So You Think You Can Dance 2014," America's favorite summer series, has kept viewers amazed and inspired as talented dancers skilled in everything from Hip Hop, Krumping and Popping to Salsa, Quickstep and Jive 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 and Mary Murphy.

The "So You Think You Can Dance 2014" Top 20 contestants include Bridget Whitman, Brooklyn Fullmer, Carly Blaney, Casey Askew, Emilio Dosal, Emily James, Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Jourdan Epstein, Malene Ostergaard, Marcquet Hill, Nick Garcia, Ricky Ubeda, Rudy Abreu, Serge Onik, Stanley Glover, Tanisha Belnap, Teddy Coffey, Valerie Rockey and Zack Everhart Jr.

Past winners include 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.



The 11th season debuts with auditions from New Orleans and Chicago and continues with audition episodes in Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta. Talented dancers who impress the judges during these auditions will be invited to Pasadena for the callback round. Then, once the top 20 dancers are selected, they will be paired with a partner performing in their own styles, and voting begins as dancers perform for America's vote on the series' milestone 200th episode. Each week a special guest judge will join resident judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy.

Guest judges in the audition cities include Jenna Dewan-Tatum (Atlanta), Charles "Lil Buck" Riley (Atlanta), Billy Porter and Misty Copeland (Philadelphia), Wayne Brady (New Orleans), Jenna Elfman and Fabrice Calmels (Chicago) and Christina Applegate (Los Angeles). Guest judges at the Pasadena callbacks include Adam Shankman, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, Tara Lipinski and Irina Dvorovenko.

In a brand-new feature this season, pop and R&B phenom Justin Bieber and his choreographer, Nick DeMoura, will introduce top dance crews from around the country who will be featured in each of the audition city episodes. Each week, Bieber and DeMoura will showcase two dance crews on each of the four audition episodes.

Until the Top 10 are determined, the Top 20 finalists will be paired with a partner to perform a randomly chosen style of dance.

Once the series is down to the Top 10, each finalist will be joined by a "So You Think You Can Dance" All-Star dancer. These All-Stars are experts in various styles of dance — Ballroom, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Contemporary and Jazz — and will partner with one of the Top 10 finalists to perform in their specialty. Each week, based solely on America's votes, it will be revealed who keeps dancing and who goes home.

Featuring Emmy Award-nominated host Cat Deeley, each jam-packed episode will include awe-inspiring performances and eliminations. The series also will return to the one-contestant-takes-all grand finale prize for the competition's sole winner.

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.
