Justin Bieber Joins ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Season 11
Summer hit So You Think You Can Dance is back — with the Biebs on board!
The competition returns for its 11th season of twirling, kicking, salsa dancing and maybe even some twerking, but the best part of all is that Justin Bieber is bringing a fresh element to the series! Justin will be introducing the brand new dance crew component.
Judge Nigel Lythgoe spoke to HollywoodLife.com, telling us that they’ve been trying to get Justin on board for a while, and that he’s always wanted to join the show.
“We’ve known a long time that he’s a fan, but we’ve never been able to do anything him. He’s always been so busy,” Nigel said on a conference call with reporters. “So we found out where he was, asked him to do it, he was thrilled to do it…he’s a huge So You Think You Can Dance fan. Obviously he watched it in Canada and here in America, [he] loves it and is going to be presenting that part of the show.”
Justin Bieber Brings Dance Crews To ‘SYTYCD’
Justin and his choreographer Nick DeMoura will present the new dance crew element of the show, which Nigel says will stay separate from the individual competition. “Obviously we don’t want to get in the way of the main competition. So this is going to occurring over the audition shows,” he says, adding that two crews will be introduced on each show, and Justin will appear four times.
“This year, for the first time on So You Think You Can Dance, we’re bringing you the finest crews from all around the country, and asking you to vote for your favorites on Twitter,” Nick says, alongside Justin in the video (above).
After dance crews are featured and fans vote on Twitter, the top crews will have the chance to dance on the show, and the top crew will perform on the finale.
