So You Think You Can Dance is typically dominated by contemporary dancers, but Season 8 may see an influx of performers also from another genre — hip hop.

Producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe Tweeted that this year’s contestants will include “at least two of the best B-Boys” he has ever seen.

Lythgoe also told Pop Wrap earlier in the month: “It’s not that we’re staying away from contemporary, but we haven’t been inundated with them as in years past. There’s a lot of exciting hip hop dancers we’ve invested in, and hopefully they’ll come through for us across the season.”

SYTYCD premieres on May 26 at 8 p.m.
