So You Think You Can Dance Season 11 (spoilers OK)

SYTYCD Season 11 starts Wednesday 5/28. Nigel Lythgoe is making noises as if Fox is seriously considering ending the show after this season, but I don't see it happening as long as it gets decent summer ratings.

A couple of changes this year:

First, no more "plane tickets to Vegas" - Vegas Week is now in LA somewhere. I wonder how they're going to handle this at the LA auditions.

Second, in each of the four audition city episodes, there will be two "dance crews" shown; viewers send Twitter tweets with one or the other's hashtag, and the one (out of all eight, I presume) with the most tweets gets to perform in the show's finale. Note that there was zero mention of this in any official audition announcement.

I really like this show and hope it doesn't go away. Not sure what I would do to revitalize it, though. I guess the dance crew feature is to attract younger viewers.

I know what I wouldn't do, and that is to bring in Justin Bieber.

Anyone else catch "Big Ballet" on Ovation last night?
If there is interest I'll start a thread.

Yeah, I ff through all the Bieber parts--don't even know what that's all about--don't even care. Otherwise it seems like the same old show. Good summer fare.

The guy whose Dad died sure did suck at choreography. He looked so awkward. I could do better.

Bieber and his buddy were just phoning it in. Very stupid.

Does anything after the group/Bieber stuff start have any bearing on the 'real' show? I just stopped it after they were done with the regular auditions. Did I miss anything of any importance?

Me too! It just seems so good natured. Only downside for me is screaming Mary, but there's always mute for her and FF for biebs.

It was all about getting people to tweet for which dance crew they wanted to see perform on the show (for the finale?)

It is fun to see someone's crew if there's a contestant in the show who is part of a crew, but for the most part, I wish the crews would have their own showcase. If Nigel wants to clone ABDC he should just do that and not half-ass it.

Did you see the Chicago (or as they called it, "Chi-Beria") auditions? There were two "appearances" of the crews; after they danced, they showed day 1 of the Chicago auditions (which ended with...
Spoiler:
Caleb (the boy who was put through to choreography in New Orleans but was told by Nigel that he needed much more partner work) showed up in Chicago (in real time, this would have been four weeks later), was put through to choreography again, and this time made it to LA
...then ended with a recap of the two crews and how the vote currently stood. (Assuming the west coast tally was up-to-date and not just a repeat of the eastern broadcast tally, the women had something like 75% of the vote.)

1. I REALLY want the female tap crew to be on the show.
2. ENOUGH with the dancing Dads, ok?

I have a feeling Nigel does as well. I wouldn't be surprised if he put them up against what he feels is the weakest crew of the other seven. If I read correctly, this isn't an "elimination contest", so being up against a weak crew would be an advantage as your vote percentage would be inflated as a result.

Bieber just introduces the acts. Once he is off and the dancing starts, it is safe.

I somehow missed this post last week-- I thought the regular audition part was over when the dance crew stuff started, so I stopped watching then. I didn't realize that only lasted for a few minutes and then they returned to the regular audition process with the Chicago stuff. Thanks! Watching now!

From the second audition show: Loved the audition with "Mary Poppins".

And it looks like Breaksk8 has gotten a lot better since I last saw them (on ABDC) -- good for them. But I still wish Nigel would just put the crews on the show as guests and forget all the silly 'tweet for your favorite' crap. The Bieber segments are just painfully bad.

I liked it when they sent the guy from KC up to battle with the other poppers. It did seem like he stepped up his game when he had to respond to them.

But when Mary P. came off the stage and then she and Fik-shun were playing off each other, that was something else.

That is why I love the audition shows.

After we watched the KC guy do his audition and then the other 3 came up to battle, Fik-shun went first and he was so much better than the auditioner. He had the moves, the humor and the charisma.

I was also really shocked when they sent the brown-haired girl with self-esteem issues to choreo instead of giving her a ticket.

I would hope Fik-shun would be better than the guy from KC.

But it did seem like the guy from KC danced a little better in the battle than he did during his audition. That was Nigel's excuse for sending him to choreography, anwyay.

In the past, they've been keen on giving dancers an experience if the dancers seemed sincere about their work.

Wasn't she coming back from dancing after having been away for a year and a half? Maybe they expected her to do well there, but wanted her to get some experience.

They have so many awesome dancers and they seem to just let most of them through without going through all the "we only have 10 spaces left" type of thing. I guess all that's edited out.

I remember when Idol was first on the auditions shows had tons of really bad singers. I never watched them. They don't seem to mess around with no talent people much on either show any more.

It seems like a lot of the spotlighted people you see in the audition rounds never make it to the top 20.

Okay, who's with me on this?

I am really getting tired of the editing on the auditions. If someone is really good, I want to see the entire performance. I don't necessarily want to see the judges' reaction shots. If Mary Murphy is yelling out that she really likes something, I can hear it and I know it's her -- I don't need to also SEE it.

Besides, don't a lot of people have big screen TVs? If they wanted to put in a reaction shot so bad, why not do it as an inset?

There have been times when I really did like certain reaction shots, but over the what, 17 seasons, it probably averages less than 1 per season.

Yes, I bitch about this EVERY season but the 2nd audition show seemed to have especially bad editing.

I keep thinking I should go back to my tapes/recordings and crank the numbers.

agree totally, i wish we could see all the full auditions, many of these and the vegas (now LA) solos are better than much of the show, and i'd love to see more/the rest

I actually like seeing the reaction shots, but agree that putting them in the corner of the screen would be much better and would also somewhat confirm that they actually happened when the editing is saying they happened (if they had the judges on the corner throughout the performance.)
