FOX has renewed So You Think You Can Dance for a seventeenth season. This is amazing! When we first covered this show in Season 1 - and we were literally the only blog in the world interested in covering it - I didn't think it could go on this long. It even beat American Idol's run on FOX.
I'm so happy for Nigel and Mary. You two should continue doing this show forever.
