First the good news: “So You Think You Can Dance” has its final four dancers. Tiffany Maher, Eliana Girard, Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Cyrus Spencer will all vie for America’s votes in next Tuesday’s (Sept. 11) performance finale.
The bad news: Witney Carson and Cole Horibe were automatically eliminated after receiving the fewest votes.
Even though America decided their fate after last week’s performance show, each contestant had to perform three dances tonight: solo, paired with an All-Star and paired with a fellow finalist.
“Up All Night” star Christina Applegate returned as a guest judge — and poor predictor.
“Your foot was terrible in your pirouette,” she said about his jazz routine with reigning champ Melanie Moore, “but I don’t give a s***, because you’re so good. And we’ll see you next week.”
Well, at least he’ll be in the audience?
As usual, Eliana received mostly unanimous raves from the judges, who also called fan-favorite animator Cyrus “inspirational” and “special.” Tiffany and Chehon both received enthusiastic standing ovations for their All-Star routines.
“So You Think You Can Dance’s” performance finale airs on a special night, Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. on FOX. The polls were closed after tonight’s show, no one will be eliminated next week. The winning pair, “America’s Favorite Female/Male Dancer,” will be announced in the season finale, Tuesday, Sept. 18.
