So You Think You Can Dance Tidbits and Spoilers – Possible Top 20 Special to Introduce the Dancers

So You Think You Can Dance, Season 6 debuts in a little over 2 weeks, on September 9.

Despite the potential for re-cappers burn out as the result of back-to-back seasons (Season 5 ended on 8/6), I seriously cannot wait to watch the new crop of dancers take the stage at CBS studios in LA.

In anticipation of the new Season, check out these spoilers from, right HERE. The Top 40 were chosen during Vegas week, which wrapped up a few weeks ago. However the Green Mile episode–where the Top 20 are revealed–has not been taped yet.

You will notice there is one notable cut from the list of Vegas week dancers. It’s not a shock.

In other news, in a recent interview, Nigel Lythgoe had some interesting tidbits for Access Hollywood’s Laura Saltman:

  • The new season will incorporate more stars, like Ellen DeGeneres and Katie Holmes, who guest judged and performed (respectively) for Season 5.
  • Nigel would like to hold another dance competition during the results show, highlighting different group dances like stepping, tap, formation, folk dancing, etc.
  • Also, Nigel is thinking about taping a Top 20 special, that would give the audience a chance to get to know each of the contestants. The competition would begin a week later. (Argh. If only Idol would mimic!)

Watch the video, after the JUMP…
