      I've been watching this show since season 2. I saw Travis Wall's audition randomly when I was flipping channels that night and I was immediately taken by his intensity and passion. I watched the rest of that season just to see him and I fell in love with the entire show. The other dancers, the choreographers, the judges, the music and the routines. It became my new favorite show and I would look foward to its return every year. Over the last couple of years, it did start to become a little stale and with the show constantly facing the threat of cancellation, I knew they would have to switch things up. I didn't expect the firing of Mary Murphy to be that change. Mary truly is the heart and soul of that show. I also didn't anticipate them changing the format and in doing so, eliminating all the different styles of dance I'd grown to love, like ballroom and disco. I certainly appreciate the fact that Twitch and Travis still participate in the show but they've been limited and this show is all about growth and range. I knew that this show would be missing that intensity and passion that I fell in love with so many years ago (and also I knew that Jason and Paula would add nothing) so I decided not to watch. It sounds like I made the right decision. I'm so disappointed that I've lost my favorite show. I don't think we'll ever see anything like it again. Thanks for 10 or so wonderful years, SYTYCD.moreless
    • Please bring back the old format!!

      3.0
      Missing the couples to root for, the fun surprise dance routines, and guest judges (and Mary). Can do without the multiple dancer routines and the many many audition episodes. They took away what made the show great and added more of what wasn't so great. I'm not sure I'll watch anymore if they do this again next time.
    • Boring Season, Boring Judge Panel

      1.0
      JUDGE PANEL: The worst part about this season was the judge panel. Paula has no sense of humor and is a major downer. Jason is so monotone, he sounded the same no mater how he felt about the routine and it always took him so long to say what he wanted to say. I have to GIVE NIGEL PROPS because he attempted to add some chemistry and humor but was always promptly squashed by Paula. I miss the funny guest judges and especially Mary Murphy! Please don't make me sit through another season of the same panel next year!

      CHOREOGRAPHY: The choreography was seriously lacking this year. Seemed very below the quality it has been in the past. The ones I love art Stacy Tookey, Travis Wall, NappyTabs, Sonia Tayeh and Christopher Scott.

    • Choreography

      5.0
      I felt sometimes the dancers received low scores because the choreography was not 100%. You can only dance (sometimes) as good as your choreography. Nice to try a new format to see what works and what doesn't work. The votes are in. Hopefully the producers will do the right thing to get their ratings back up. Congrats to the winner! (I ain't hating)! :0)
    • Terrible format

      3.5
      This years format of stage vs street horrible. Judges gave tough and terrible criticism to the stage performers. Jim was the best talented dancer and didn't get to the finals???? It was alwYs about the street dancers . Seemed like that was all we were watching. And even numbers going home from each team???? Should have best dancers and highest votes. And the finale was almost all street dancing. I want the emotional graceful dancing, ball room dancing and more trained dancers back! Not saying that street dancing shouldn't be on too but not 90% street and not given advantages or being favored. If this is format and judges for next year won't be watching. And glad that Gabby won! I thought her or Jim would have taken it. Loved Jaja and Vurgil but not to win.moreless
