When we talk, “So You Think You Can Dance” executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe listens.

Last week after a “SYTYCD” taping, Lythgoe asked us who our favorite guest judge this season was. “Jesse Tyler Ferguson for sure!” we responded, with other reporters chiming in to say it was a toss up between the “Modern Family” star and “How I Met Your Mother” funnyman Neil Patrick Harris.

Flash forward to today, and we get the news that Ferguson has been added to the guest judge list for the results show this Thursday (Aug. 11), along with Pussycat Dolls boss Robin Antin and “SYTYCD” mainstays Lil’ C, Tyce Diorio and Sonya Tayeh.

Of course, as we previously reported, Katie Holmes and Kenny Ortega will sit beside Lythgoe and Mary Murphy on the Wednesday (Aug. 10) finale performance show, and the top 20 will return as usual. But will Holmes entertain us up onstage too? “No, there isn’t time for that,” Lythgoe told us.

As for what performances we can expect the final four – Melanie, Sasha, Marko, and Tadd – to dazzle us with, Lythgoe told us, if it were up him, “you’ll certainly you’ll see [Sasha and tWitch's breakfast dance] again in the finale if I get my vote.”

Well, it is up to him so that’s one dance we can nearly count on.
