So You Think You Can Dance: Asaf Goren joins the top 20

Posted on


This post contains spoilers from Monday’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance.

There’s been a shakeup on Team Street.

As teased at the end of last week’s Vegas episode, which announced the top 10 Stage dancers and top 10 Street dancers, one of the original 20 has already been brought down by injury. Monday’s showcase revealed who had to leave the competition — and which controversial dancer has been called in as a replacement.

Asaf Goren, the 23-year-old “Hebrew breaker” from Telaviv, Israel, is taking over for injured locker Alain “Hurrikane” Lauture. In Vegas, Goren divided the judges, who praised his entertaining solos but questioned his ability to pick up choreography. Now, he’s back to prove himself on the big stage. Check out these exclusive portraits of Goren, as well as the group shot above.
