SO You Think You Can Dance fans have slammed new judge JoJo Siwa for being “obnoxious” as she gives lengthy comments during the show.
The 19-year-old has joined Season 17 of SYTYCD as a new panelist, alongside Matthew Morrison and Stephen “tWitch” Boss.
After almost three years off the air, the dance competition series returned to Fox last week with its first episode since the pandemic began.
Viewers were introduced to the new judges as they met the first batch of auditioners, but come episode 2, fans were still not on board with all the newcomers.
On Wednesday night, social media users blasted JoJo for using up a lot of the show time with her reactions and notes.
Aside from the length of her speeches, the volume of her voice compared to others also irritated some, with many begging for the mic to be turned down or for her to tone down the enthusiasm.

“Please God tell me she is just on for one week…. This is so painful, and I look forward to this show every year!”
