So You Think You Can Dance: Why There May Be No Live Shows This Season

When So You Think You Can Dance aired its 300th episode on Wednesday, June 15, viewers were introduced to the top 12 of season 17, as well as Leah Remini as a judge. The King of Queens actress was replacing Matthew Morrison. However, an announcement at the beginning of the show left viewers wondering if there will be any live shows this year. Find out why there is a theory that no live shows will air during SYTYCD season 17.

At the start of the Wednesday, June 15 episode, long-time host Cat Deeley announced that the top 12 would be competing for a grand prize of $100,000, as well as the title of "America's Favorite Dancer." She then revealed that for the first time ever, the studio audience would be voting for the dancers, and that they would determine which four dancers were in danger at the end of the night. Then, it would be up to the judges to save two dancers from elimination, sending the other two home.

After this announcement was made at the start of the show, many viewers wondered if any live shows would be taking place during the season. According to BolaVip, the show is taping new episodes in advance, with the final taped episode scheduled for Wednesday, July 13. However, the seasons usually run until mid-September, so it is possible that the live SYTYCD shows won't start until a later date.

With SYTYCD usually running from the end of May until the middle of September, it is possible that the live shows are being pushed back until a later date. However, with no live shows, the series could be trying to end the season a little sooner than normal. If the live shows do not happen for So You Think You Can Dance season 17, viewers could possibly see the season end towards the end of July or the beginning of August.

It seems as though live shows are more than likely not going to occur this year, since the studio audience members were the only ones that were able to vote on the Wednesday, June 15, episode. One thing is for certain, which is the fact that So You Think You Can Dance producers may have made a big error if no live shows are happening after a two-year SYTYCD hiatus.
