It is great to see the US version of the So You Think You Can Dance on our screens. Channel Ten will probably run it through the Olympics so they are not expecting it to be a big ratings winner - presently it is getting about 1 million viewers on the Wednesday night show.
One thing that has stood out for me so far when comparing it to the Australia version is the judges are so much better in the US version. Nigel and Mary are honest without being cruel, and not patronising, something the Jason Coleman's and Matt Lee's have yet to master.
Also rotating the third guest judge makes it much more interesting, with the likes of Mandy Moore, and Mia Michaels giving their opinions. Lets hope the Australian producers of the show tweak the format for next season to ensure that some of the weaknesses of Season 1 can be rectified.
Recaps of the US SYTYCD will start once they hit Vegas.
