Vegas week kicks off on So You Think You Can Dance, Season 6. On the panel with new mainstay judge Adam Shankman were regulars Mary Murphy and Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe. Helping them out were Tyce Diorio, Mia Michaels, and Debbie Allen.
First round of cuts happened too quick for some of the contestants when all 152 were asked to perform their solos again to remind the judges why they were picked or how wrong they were to have called them back to go to Vegas in the first place! 41 people were let go and 111 are left to continue. Still a long way to go to Top 20.
The second round of cuts were done during the Hip Hop round with Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo. Here, 21 other dancers had left the competition. Last round was a very difficult ballroom routine with Louis Van Amstel that left only 77 dancers standing after the final cuts for the day.
Here were some of the performers in Vegas week:
Nathan Trasoras – 18yo from Downy, CA
Ellenore Scott – 19yo from Brooklyn, NY
