SPOILER ahead. Two more dancers have left the competition after the Tuesday, Aug. 13, performance show, which featured the season 10 finalists paired up with 10 of the most beloved So You Think You Can Dance All-Stars (like sparklin’ Brandon Bryant, pictured). I’ll post my full recap of tonight’s performances later on; in the meantime, discuss!
Nico Greetham and Makenzie Dustman have been eliminated.
Tucker Knox and Jenna Johnson also landed in the bottom four but were saved by the votes of a group of 15 judges/choreographers (I believe this is the first time we’ve heard this number acknowledged, and in “score” form). Nigel Lythgoe said the voters were unanimous in wanting Tucker to stay over Nico, while the Jenna vs. Makenzie vote was closer: 9 votes to 6.
[SOB] Please excuse me from not writing more just yet as I am still weeping from Tucker and Robert’s “pull your brother out of the darkness” duet. [SOB]
Oh, but I do want to point out how obsessed I am with Stacey Tookey’s choice of a Des’ree song. Here are the dances!
