'So You Think You Can Dance' sixth-season tour looking unlikely


By Christopher Rocchio, 12/23/2009 

Barring a holiday miracle, it seems as though there won't be a national tour for So You Think You Can Dance's sixth-season finalists.

"It has been a very unique year for So You Think You Can Dance with seasons five and six airing back-to-back and season seven auditions starting in January," a So You Think You Can Dance representative told E! News in a Tuesday report.

"Each season we strive to deliver a stellar tour for the fans and are still open to touring opportunities with the season-six dancers in the future, but nothing has been set at this time."

While the show's representative didn't make a definitive statement about a tour, sixth-season finalist Mollee Gray didn't sound confident in a Twitter post on Tuesday.

"I just heard we aren't having a tour?! Ugghh man that sucks for sure... :( I'm gunna cry :(" she wrote.

Each So You Think You Can Dance edition's Top 10 finalists have participated in a post-show tour since the competition's second season in 2006.

However this has been an unusual year for the reality series, as Fox decided to air the show's first-ever fall installment immediately on the heels of its fifth season this past summer.

The fifth-season tour didn't conclude until November 21 -- only three weeks before Russell Ferguson was crowned the show's sixth-season champ.

"It was never anticipated to run twice a year, and it's unfair on [fifth-season winner Jeannine Mason] to have Russell there," So You Think You Can Dance creator and lead judge Nigel Lythgoe told E! News after the sixth-season finale.  "She should have her year."

In addition, the sixth-season tour isn't the only bit of uncertainty currently surrounding the series, according to Lythgoe.

"I still don't know if [Season 7] is going be in the summer or in the fall next year," he told E! News.
