'So You Think You Can Dance' Season 17: Fans miss the old format

'So You Think You Can Dance' season 16 returned on Monday night (June 15) and it didn't disappoint.

The judges whittled the contestants down to the Top 10 men and Top 10 women after five weeks of auditions.

In their initial discourse, the pair, dressed head-to-toe in Jimmy Kimmel Live! merchandise, made fun of Kimmel's twofold determination.

Despite the slew of contestants, some coped well with the pressure of the Academy Round, while others gave in to it. 

In the Academy round, contestants are narrowed down.

The Academy Round is all about learning, and if used correctly, it will help the dancers shine throughout the competition.

The judges have the tough job of narrowing them down in Monday night's episode.

Fan favorites survived this week's cuts and will move on to next week's final Oscar round, but one didn't.
