    First it was "American Idol" and now the reality show's ugly step child is in town.

    Would be reality television stars began lining up outside of the Paramount Theatre in downtown Oakland Wednesday morning all for a chance to appear on Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance."

    Producers from the show were looking for colorful dancers, who could bust a move and entertain a live audience.

    But like every dream that seems too easy, there is a catch. Dancers are required to be U.S. citizens or possess legal Employment Authorization Cards. And dancers can't be younger than 18 or older than 30.

    Sorry William Hung.
