Meet Your New 'So You Think You Can Dance' Top 20
They have awesome names like Kherington and Comfort and Twitch
Kherington Payne of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
If you're looking for trends, this season features several foreign-born contestants (a "So You Think You Can Dance" tradition) as well as several Utah-based dancers whose credits include the ultra-popular "High School Musical" franchise. And, as usual, nobody with a tap-dancing specialty is included.
If you're looking for more trends, everybody in this year's Top 20 is young, athletic and darned attractive, which is part of the reason why "SYTYCD" stands out as one of the summer's most reliable demographic smashes.
The Top 20 will be paired into 10 couples with their first performance show airing next Wednesday (June 11), followed by the first live elimination show the following night.
The Thursday results show will also feature performances by The Pussycat Dolls and The Electric Boogaloos.
