|The show starts at 8:00 on Monday, June 1st, on Fox.
Mary Murphy is gone. Paula Abdul will take her place, and Jason Derulo (who was such a failure as a guest judge) will be the third judge on the panel. Nigel is still there.
The new format is Stage vs. Street. The top 20 will consist of 10 "stage" dancers and 10 "street" dancers. They will be mentored by Travis Wall and Twitch, who seems to have stopped spelling his name "tWitch." One dancer from each group will be eliminated each week.
I'm not crazy about the prospect of having hip hop represent 50% of the dances each week, but maybe it will spare the stage dancers from having to perform hip hop.
Frankly, I don't like any of the changes.
