Premise: Host Cat Deeley is joined by judges Nigel Lythgoe, Paula Abdul, Jason Derulo and Maddie Ziegler for the next generation of the Emmy Award-winning dance competition series. This season features dancers ages 8-13. Their styles range from tap to hip-hop and ballroom to break dancing. During nationwide auditions, the contestants vie for a place at ``The Academy,'' and the best dancers advance to the next round. The top 10 dancers partner with all-stars and move on to the SYTYCD studio. One contestant is eliminated each week until the winner is named during the season finale.
