So You Think You Can Dance Judges: Who Will You Miss?

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?

Adam was my favorite of the rotating judges, so if they were going to go w/ one permanent one I'm glad they chose him. But I do love Lil C's ramblings...I know I'm a minority there but he cracks me up. I'm really going to miss Mia's dances. Hopefully this isn't permanent.

I like Mia the most although I also like Tyce Diorio. I'll miss Mia's choreography, I love her and Sonya's work the best. Debbie Allen doesn't bother me but she doesn't really make me like her either. I can't stand Lil C's critiques - I usually fast forward through his comments. I have to say if they were going to make any 3rd judge permanent, Adam Shankman was probably the best pick.

For me it was a toss up between Mia and Debbie. I chose Debbie because she seems the most heartfelt and honest in her critiques. Though I will say I'll miss Mia's choreography. Sad that she's leaving the show!!

It seems that Mia is no longer with SYTYCD. She announced it on her facebook and twitter account.

i knew that most folks were going to say mia but i think that debbie allen is the one that i'll miss most. i just like her take on the dancing more than just about everyone else that's a 'guest judge'

Debbie Allen gives honest, straight forward feedback. Sometimes she talks too much, but I usually agree with what she's saying. Thank God less Lil' C! I'd like to see some krumping this season and less vocabulary.

I chose Mia, but thinking about it more, I am happy with this. I LOVE Adam Shankman as a judge (follow him on Twitter too!) and I am actually disappointed with Mia is on the panel sometimes because that means no one is dancing to her choreography! Hopefully this means we'll see more Mia dances!
