In the past, there was always a separate results show, and just one winner. But this time around there’s no separate show, and there will be two winners! Nigel Lythgoe told ET at the Fox upfronts that it was something they should have already implemented.

“This year we’re doing an entirely new thing that we should have done years ago,” Lythgoe said. “We’re going to have a male winner and a female winner. With changing it around, to making it just one show, we sort of realized, ‘Hey, why don’t we do this?’ We wanted to do it, now we have the opportunity to do so.”

What do you think of So You Think You Can Dance season 9 having two winners?
