This interview is exclusive and taken by Namita Nayyar President and should not be reproduced, copied or hosted in part or full anywhere without an express permission.Fox and series creator Nigel Lythgoe have each independently confirmed that the weekly results show, a staple of the series in seasons 2-8, has been cut from the show format and that only one episode will air each week for the show's ninth season.Since her time on the show, Amelia has appeared as a principal dancer in episodes of Boardwalk Empire.
In the package, the dancers must describe themselves in nine seconds. Will first auditioned for season 9 in Los Angeles, California. He dances a contemporary routine with Alexa Anderson, George Lawrence II, and Amber Jackson.Mary praises him by telling him that he was there for his group membes every step of the way.This contrasts with the season one format where judges would nominate a bottom three couples and home viewers would vote out two dancers, the results being pre-taped and shown at the beginning of the next week's episode.Lythgoe also hinted at which elements of the results show were likely to be carried over into the new format, suggesting the group and guest dance routines would be shown priority over guest musical acts.
Will and partner Amelia danced a contemporary by Sonya Tayeh to "3326" by Ólafur Arnalds.
