So You Think You Can Dance Australia kicks off its 2009 season with Sydney auditions on Sunday February 1st.
TV Tonight has taken a peek at the premiere episode and can tell you that it’s back with some kickin’ dancers again.
Host Natalie Bassingthwaighte looks far more relaxed in her role after a tentative start in 2008.
The 90 min premiere again turns on the drama with some very personal admissions by dancers prepared to put their stories on the line. It again proves it is the most multicultural reality show on Australian television.
And watch out for one out-of-the-box dancer with the odd name “Forever.”
The 2009 series will also include an appearance by Nigel Lythgoe, producer of the US series and formerly American Idol, who will be judging alongside wife Bonnie Lythgoe, Matt Lee and Jason Coleman.
Choreographer superstar Wade Robson, who has led music videos for NSync, Britney Spears and Michael Jackson will also take dancers through their paces later in the series.
