So You Think You Can Dance stopped by BAM in Brooklyn earlier this week to audition a new batch of dancers for the FOX show’s upcoming ninth season. Wetpaint Entertainment was on the scene to talk to judge Mary Murphy about possible upcoming guest judges and how the new two-hour format will affect the show.

When we asked Mary about the possible loss of the beloved guest company performances, she reassured us that the loss of the Results Show did not mean that we would be losing out on seeing exciting new dancers.

“We’re definitely going to have guest companies perform, we’re not going to lose a single element in the two-hour format,” Mary told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively. “It’s just going to be more of it. Things are just going to happen a lot quicker, there will be less waiting around.”

Mary also told reporters that she is looking forward to finding out who the guest judges will be this year.

“I’m looking forward to seeing who the other guest judges are. I usually don’t know until I get to the set that day. I’m looking forward to a really action-packed two hours and fitting everything we do into one night.”

Sounds like it will be an exciting new season!
