This week, the second round of callbacks commenced on So You Think You Can Dance, and next week we finally get our gratification and find out who the top 20 are. While I can't wait for the competition, there's something else I'm looking forward to this season: the addition of Adam Shankman as a permanent judge. I've been excited to see Adam take his spot since the news was announced a few weeks ago, but seeing Adam react emotionally to one dancer's solo this week reminded me how much I like him as a judge.
Unfortunately, there's a drawback; Nigel Lythgoe acknowledged that by having Adam on as a judge, we'll be seeing less of choreographers Tyce Diorio, Lil C, Debbie Allen, and Mia Michaels at the judges' table, because there won't be a fourth judge that often.Of course, these four serve the show better doing choreography, but I still appreciate their input as judges, particularly Mia Michaels. Will you miss seeing anyone at the judges' table this season?
