Last night on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, the eight couples performed again with brand-new routines. After America’s vote was revealed, Dareian Kujawa, George Lawrence II, Brandon Mitchell, Lindsay Arnold, Eliana Girard and Amber Jackson were the three guys and three girls who received the fewest votes.
After deliberating, the judges – Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Christina Applegate – saved two guys and two girls – Dareian Kujawa, George Lawrence II, Lindsay Arnold and Eliana Girard – from elimination, and therefore Brandon Mitchell and Amber Jackson were sent home. In addition, the show featured a spectacular performance by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s male stars (Glenn Allen Sims, Kirven James Boyd, Antonio Douthit, Jamar Roberts, Yannick Lebrun and Jermaine Terry) who performed an excerpt of new Artistic Director Robert Battle’s dynamic piece “The Hunt.”
Lythgoe also reminded viewers that the third annual National Dance Day will take place on Saturday, July 28, the same day as The Dizzy Feet Foundation’s second annual Celebration of Dance gala at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. For more information, click here.
In two weeks, on Wednesday, August 15 at 8/7c, the competition continues on another two hour live show, when the Top 14 finalists: Lindsay Arnold and Cole Horibe; Witney Carson and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp; Audrey Case and Matthew Kazmierczak; Eliana Girard and Cyrus Spencer; Janelle Issis and Dareian Kujawa; Amelia Lowe and Will Thomas; and Tiffany Maher and George Lawrence II – compete once again for America and the judges. Also, the Top 14 will dance some of Mia Michaels’ greatest routines, with each couple performing a favorite Michaels-choreographed dance from past seasons. Additionally, choreographers Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt – otherwise known as the Ballet Boyz – will join the panel as guest judges.
