The first live episode of So You Think You Can Dance: Next Generation is in the bag, but just wait because this season can only go up from here. The contestants are out of this world, with a few of our favorites being Tahani Anderson, JT Church, Jake Monreal and Emma Hellenkamp. But honestly, picking just ONE favorite is well… impossible!

The judges this season are also bringing their A-game, with Jason Derulo and Nigel Lythgoe sitting on the panel, alongside Maddie Ziegler and Paula Adbul. Chelsea Briggs chatted with Jason and Nigel after Monday’s episode to expand on their thoughts on the contestants, and their insane routines that blew us all away! And stay tuned for more SYTYCD interviews, coming this week!

Which contestants are you rooting for?
