So You Think You Can Dance's Top 10 © FOX/Adam Rose

Our beloved dance reality show, So You Think You Can Dance on Fox, is back again for a 16th season and continuing to deliver on exciting and diverse talent! From the initial touring city auditions to the final days of The Academy, the competition has been fierce. This season, dancers in all genres between the ages of 18-30, were welcome to participate in the competition and given the chance to be crowned America's Favorite Dancer. New faces joined the judges table alongside Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, including longtime Lady Gaga choreographer and creative director, Laurieann Gibson, and So You Think You Can Dance alum, Dominic 'D-Trix' Sandoval. 

After multiple grueling audition rounds at The Academy, the judges were put in the hot seats to decide which dancers were worthy of a coveted spot in the So You Think You Can Dance Top 10 and going to receive the green light to be featured in the Dance on Fox live studio show rounds. We have seen incredible talent from all across the nation fighting for a spot in the Top 10 and the wait is finally over! We're excited to announce your Season 16 Top 10 contestants -- your top five women and top five men.

Can't wait get to know the dancers? We definitely couldn't! Fall in love with your favorites through our contestant interviews and learn about who they are and what they plan on bringing to the table. Let us know who you think should win the title of America's Favorite Dancer this season!
