We hope this is more MasterChef Junior and less American Juniors…
FOX has a habit of taking something good and completely ruining it to the point where it's unwatchable, and it looks like So You Think You Can Dance is the network's latest casualty.
That's because in a rather shocking move, TV's premier reality dance competition show (that isn't Dancing With the Stars) was just renewed for a 13th season on Monday — but there's a catch…
So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation will be kids only.

Starting May 30, contestants ages 8-13 will compete to become America's favorite dancer where the Top 10 finalists will be paired with an All-Star "mentor" to help them through the competition.
It'll be nice to see some of our favorites return, but unless they manage to find the next Maddie Ziegler, we have a feeling this whole season is going to be a miss.
While the entire format of the show may be changing, the judging panel will not — Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, and Jason Derulo are all coming back for more dancing fun!
Are U at all interested in seeing Cat Deeley interact with children on a weekly basis??
