There's a huge twist coming to this season of So You Think You Can Dance!

Not only are we welcoming Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo to the judges table, for the first time in the series' 11-season history, the dancing hopefuls will be split into two categories: street and stage.

This dancing division has infused an extra spark of passion and determination in the contestants and only ETonline has your exclusive sneak peeks at the auditionees for the two groups.

Team Stage:

With their years of classical training and perfected technique, the Team Stage potentials feel like they've got the competition in the bag. "I feel like we have the element of experience," one contestant remarks. "We're able to adapt to the different style because we've had a lot of training."

Team Street:

On the other side of the SYTYCD auditions, the Team Street contestants feel like their individuality is going to give them the edge they need to win the competition. "Not one of us is going to have the same style," one Team Street auditionee explains. "We're all going to be very versatile. We're all working towards the same goal, but you're not going to see the same thing from any of us."

Season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance premieres Monday, June 1 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
