Versatile entertainer Wayne Brady, winner of both Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, will be among the celebrated guest judges when “So You Think You Can Dance,” (SYTYCD) returns to Fox for its tenth season with a two-part premiere airing at 8 p.m., Tuesday, May 14 and at 9 p.m., Wednesday, May 15.

Other guests joining resident judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy at auditions in Austin, Boston, Detroit, Memphis and Los Angeles will be Minnie Driver, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Adam Shankman, as well as “SYTYCD” “All-Star” Stephen “tWitch” Boss, whose career has enjoyed a metoric rise since he competed and placed second in the fourth season of the Emmy-nominated dance competition.

Hosted by Cat Deeley, this search for “America’s Favorite Dancer” (not “best,” but “favorite”) showcases a potpourri of gifted dancers skilled in a variety of dance styles, including krumping, jazz, ballet, tap, hip hop and contemporary – each competing for a prized spot on the live shows in Los Angeles.

As the nationwide auditions begin, each two-hour show will feature breathtaking performances as well as suspenseful eliminations as the aspiring artists dance their way to a chance at the $250,000.00 grand prize. In recent years, several of the stand-out contestants on “STTYCD,” including Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Chaplin have been recruited to join the professional roster of another wildly popular dance competition, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
