So You Think You Can Dance 100th Episode in Pictures and Videos

sytycd_100episode

The 100th episode was bittersweet. We could not make a recap of it because we were totally disappointed with how America voted. How can Janette Manrara be eliminated over Melissa Sandvig and Kayla Radomski?! She and Jeanine Mason are the strongest dancers that could possibly win it all. We would have loved to see Janette and Jeanine battle it out in the Top 4… How sad.

Enjoy the photos anyway.
