Expect talent and emotion, but don't expect huge changes for So You Think You Can Dance Season 10.
Although this is a landmark season for Fox's reality dance competition show, which kicks off its special two-night premiere Tuesday at 8/7c, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe doesn't want to mess with the winning formula that got them this far. "We don't need to [change]. The dancers bring the changes," he says. "The dancers are the ones that create the magic for this series, not the format. It's the talent. And again, this season, Season 10, the talent is magnificent."
It's unclear, therefore, whether So You Think You Can Dance will revert back to its usual two-night performance and elimination format or continue with the combined one-night format of Season 9. Similarly, Fox has yet to announce which all-stars will return to pair up with this season's lucky finalists.
But focus on the format or familiar faces isn't what the show is all about, and former contestant, frequent all-star and first-time guest judge Stephen "tWitch" Boss sums up the emotional impact of the show. "You never get tired of falling in love with a new person and watching their growth through the weeks of going through a show," he says. "You can't beat that."

What a bizarre Super Bowl Sunday it was, from the oddly imbalanced game to the 34-minute Superdome power outage that separated the Ravens blowout of the first half from the 49ers blowout of the second half, pushing a fairly gripping Elementary episode past prime time on the East Coast.
A British father of three died from a heart attack moments after dancing to Psy's worldwide hit "Gangnam Style," British newspaper The Sun reports.
Eamonn Kilbride, 46, was performing the high-energy horse-riding-like moves when he suddenly collapsed moments later and died. He was at an office Christmas party for the Thwaites brewery, where he worked as an IT manager.

Psy has issued a formal apology for the anti-American statements he made at a protest concert in 2004.
The South Korean rapper whose chart-topping song "Gangnam Style" became a pop culture phenomenon earlier this year, came under fire for performing a song several years ago that features such lyrics as "Kill those f---ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughter-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully."
