Could same-sex partnering make its way to the So You Think You Can Dance stage? "Anything can happen," Dance choreographer and guest judge Adam Shankman told TVGuide.com after the Season 4 finale. "It's reality television."

Since rumors that Lance Bass could be a contestant on the next season of Dancing with the Stars, some fans speculate that dance shows might soon include same-sex partners.

DWTS pro Cheryl Burke said recently that America isn't ready for such pairing, but Shankman is intrigued. "I would be thrilled to see something like that," he said. "It would be so new and it would break so many barriers and just crash through walls. I would love that."

He doesn't know if producers would go for it.

"They're trying to keep people in their comfort zone," Shankman said. "But at the same time, they're trying to create new ways to keep the shows fresh, so that would be a way."
