Following its premiere, So You Think You Can Dance will continue with another two-hour episode on Wednesday, May 27 at 8PM ET/PT. 

After Fox's broadcasts of the show's open auditions, the American Idol-like search for the country's top dancer will settle into a twice-weekly schedule in which two-hour performance shows air on Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT and one-hour results shows air Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT.

Fox renewed So You Think You Can Dance last August in the midst of the show's fourth season, which was subsequently won by Joshua Allen.

Fifth-season auditions began earlier this month and will continue through the end of March, with upcoming stops scheduled for Denver, Memphis and Seattle.

Anyone who makes it through So You Think You Can Dance's local tour stops will advance to the show's Las Vegas callbacks round, where they will work with the choreographers and judges will determine the season's Top 20 semifinalists.
