The hype over So You Think You Can Dance
has just been amplified as MTV started to air reruns of FOX's popular competitive reality dance show. As it heads towards a new season, many supporters are awaiting the comeback of the show that promises to bring new faces and some fresh talents that will hopefully entice spectators to stick around for the rest of season 4. Meanwhile, fans can catch the stars of the show by watching them on the live tour or by watching reruns of the previous seasons.
In case you haven't heard, MTV already started airing season 2 last weekend starting from Friday night with auditions and then with regular episodes on Saturday until Sunday. Based from the forums and online discussions, the marathon stirred a lot of positive feedback from fans, as well as spectators who haven't had a chance to watch the show during its original broadcast of FOX.
It's been more than a year since season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance
has been aired and now, many viewers are having a better perspective of the show and its contestants, pondering on who should have made it and who should have been sent home instead.
Like other seasons of So You Think You Can Dance
, season 2 held auditions across major U.S. cities, searching for the top dancers with expertise on salsa, ballroom, hip hop, jazz, contemporary, ballet, and other types of dancing background. Cat Deeley became the new host that introduced the top 20 finalists that would compete for $100,000, a new car, and a one-year contract to perform in Celine Dion's show in Las Vegas.
Among the contestants, Benji Schwimmer
became the winner and was named "America's Favorite Dancer" after 16 million votes were collected for the season finale. Consequently, Travis Wall
was named runner up.
At present, there is no word yet if MTV will be airing more reruns of So You Think You Can Dance
but fans remain on the look out.
