Here's Your Chance to Appear on "SYTYCD"!

Raise your hand if you've ever dreamed of performing on "So You Think You Can Dance."

Now that literally all of you are raising your hands, here's some happy news: The show has teamed up with the Vyclone app to give fans a chance to do just that.

How, you ask? Well, each week, Vyclone will allow you to record yourself dancing to a different song. Immediately, the app'll create a remix video—a composite that combines your moves with the pre-recorded moves of a "SYTYCD" dancer. And as if watching yourself "performing" next to some of the show's biggest stars weren't amazing enough, the best user-generated videos will also be played on "SYTYCD" live episodes, and/or online at

In case you're unfamiliar with the Vyclone app, Nigel Lythgoe himself has made a little instructional video explaining how it works:

And once you're up to speed on the logistical side of things, check out this week's song. Yes, you'll be (digitally) rocking out alongside none other than tWitch:

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)

All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.

When it comes to injury-prone body parts, knees reign supreme for dancers. But a little strengthening can go a long way in preventing painful outcomes.
