The hot tamale train is coming back sooner than expected: Fox has just announced that 'So You Think You Can Dance' will return on May 27, making it three seasons running nearly back to back. That frequency unfortunately compromised the season 6 tour, which has been postponed indefinitely.

The reality dance competition show begins, like 'American Idol,' with hundreds of hopefuls both good and awful. They'll try out in front of a panel of judges that include Mary Murphy and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. Auditions will take place in Dallas on March 10, Nashville on March 14, Chicago on March 18 and Los Angeles on March 26.The hot tamale train is coming back sooner than expected: Fox has just announced that 'So You Think You Can Dance' will return on May 27, making it three seasons running nearly back to back.

Last season's guest judge, Adam Shankman, is co-producing this year's Oscars and it's not yet been announced if he's returning to 'Dance.' E! has reported that past judge Mia Michaels has been spotted at the New York City auditions.

Season 6 winner, Russell Ferguson, was crowned "America's Favorite Dancer" on December 16. Sadly, neither he nor the rest of the top 10 dancers got to tour this year, according to E!.

A rep for the show explained, "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. 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."

Lythgoe did not seem happy about the situation, as he commented after the season 6 finale, "It was never anticipated to run twice a year, and it's unfair [to season 5 winner] Jeannine to have Russell there. She should have her year." Now Ferguson's year is being cut short as well (although he did, of course, walk away with a $250,000 prize.)
