Emmy Award winner Nigel Lythgoe, award-winning choreographer Mary Murphy and award-winning actress, singer and dancer Vanessa Hudgens will return as resident judges on the series, hosted by Emmy Award nominee Cat Deeley.

"I am always blown away by the sheer level of raw talent on this show," said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company.

Auditions for the 15th season kick off next month. All potential contestants should register online at soyouthinkyoucandance2018.castingcrane.com/ and upload a video or provide a link to a video of their performance. If selected, producers will reach out to schedule the contestant for an in-person audition in one of the two audition cities: New York or Los Angeles. Dancers must be no younger than 18 or older than 30 years of age. Dancers must provide legal, valid proof of age when they register for auditions. Check soyouthinkyoucandance2018.castingcrane.com/ and/or fox.com/dance for full eligibility rules, official rules and additional details.

During the audition rounds, the most talented dancers will compete in front of the judges for a coveted spot at "The Academy" callback rounds in Los Angeles. At the end of "The Academy" callback rounds, the judges will choose this season's top dancers to move on in the competition. Those that are selected to move on to the SYTYCD studio will work with world-renowned choreographers and compete LIVE each week for America's votes in a variety of styles. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale.

Last September, Lex Ishimoto was named the winner during the live two-hour season finale on FOX. Ishimoto, 19, danced off with the cash prize of $250,000, the cover of Dance Spirit magazine and the title of America's Favorite Dancer.
