American Idol and SYTYCD on Tour Together?

Nigel Lythgoe, creator of both AMERICAN IDOL and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE has hinted that the top talent from both shows may come together for a joint tour next year. Interesting. Is the far less watched show, SYTYCD, carrying the top rated AMERICAN IDOL on its back? Definitely not in the ratings, but when it comes to the tour…perhaps? The American Idol Tour went from the hottest ticket in town just a few short years ago to a ticket that promoters couldn’t give away (literally). The SYTYCD tour sold out fast and furious again this year. Hmmm.

As a fan of both shows I’m not sure I like this idea. I feel like one of the shows will dominate (Idol) and the other left to scraps. Just my two cents.

So fan of Idol and SYTYCD, what do you think of a joint tour? Good idea or one not to be explored?

    I love both shows but I totally agree. I hated this idea the moment I read it.

    My only problem with the SYTYCD tour is that it’s not long ENOUGH so to have the Idols monopolize the time while I’d rather just watch the dancers dance will be even more disappointing. You know, unless they make the show run for about 6 hours (with 10 minutes for the singers, 30 if its Blake).

    Yeah, I’m okay with exhausting my beloved dancers just so I can see them longer!
