Swedish dance music legend Salvatore Ganacci has been chosen to judge the next season of FOX's So You Think You Can Dance.
In efforts to appeal to the dance music market, the show's producers picked the best dancer in the genre. Ganacci and his enticing moves have wowed the crowds at some of the biggest festivals in the world, making him an ideal choice.
When asked about their recent judge selection, producers had this to say:

The "Fallen Embers" single has received a major rework from NGHTMRE, transforming the track into a future bass jam.

The song's iconic saxophone hook, originally positioned in the outro, nearly became an afterthought.
"[Ganacci] just gets it. I've never seen someone gyrate and dry hump a turntable quite like him. From the moment we saw that iconic Tomorrowland video we knew we just had to get him on our staff. Dancers will have to be extra prepared this year as this is by far our most world renown judge to date."
In addition to dancing on stage, Ganacci has also been known to sometimes play and make music.
