Justin Bieber will be on “crews control” in the new season of So You Think You Can Dance.

According to judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, Bieber will be introducing a new “dance crews” component when So You Think You Can Dance returns for its 11th season, May 28 on Fox and CTV.

“Obviously we don't want to get in the way of the main competition, so this is going to be occurring over the audition shows (the first four episodes),” Lythgoe explained. “We're going to introduce two crews in each show and ask the public to Tweet which crew out of the two that they would like to see in the studio. And that's going to be presented by Justin Bieber.

“He's a huge So You Think You Can Dance fan. Obviously, you know, he watched it in Canada (So You Think You Can Dance Canada) and here in America, loves it, and is going to be presenting that part of the show.

“We've known a long time that he's a fan. But we've never been able to do anything with him, he's always been so busy. So we found out where he was, asked him to do it, he was thrilled to do it, we shot out to Cannes and shot it in Cannes. He's introducing the crews and asking you to Tweet.”
