so you think you can dance'So You Think You Can Dance' celebrated its 100th episode with a highly-anticipated performance by Katie Holmes and blasts from seasons past, including three Emmy-winning numbers, but it wasn't all fun and happy memories. Two more season 5 dancers had to go home, and this week, Janette Manrara and Jason Glover received the fewest votes.

The results surprised the judges. In an unusual departure, judge Nigel Lythgoe told Janette she was his favorite dancer and one he hoped would win the competition.

The other female and male dancers in danger were Kayla Radomski and Brandon Bryant.so you think you can dance'So You Think You Can Dance' celebrated its 100th episode with a highly-anticipated performance by Katie Holmes and blasts from seasons past, including three Emmy-winning numbers, but it wasn't all fun and happy memories.

Watch Katie Holmes' performance



Here are a few highlights from Jason and Janette's exit interviews ...

Jason, on his elimination:
To be honest with you, as good as I felt performing my routines the other night, I was not shocked. I was at peace with it. I think I got emotional because of what I had accomplished to that point. I didn't think I would even get there. And of course, watching the video, that didn't help in the tear department. But I was happy ... I was not expecting it, but I was prepared. I'll say that.

Jason, on the timing of his Bollywood dance:
Bollywood I think could have gone both ways. I think it was nice to start off the competition with that right out of the gate with Caitlin. I think we performed it very well. But on the other hand, had that come at a later stage I think it would've given people a chance to see a different side of us. They saw a very different [side] right away, and they didn't get to get used to our style right away like some of the other dancers. But it was nice to come right out of the gates with that.

Jason, on having to follow Ade and Melissa's breast cancer-inspired dance:
You can't think about those things before you step onto a stage because if you do, it's gonna mess you up, and it's gonna show in your performance and it's just not gonna end up well. I'm very happy for Melissa and Ade that they got a piece like that, and they got to experience something like that on the show, and change a lot of lives and affect a lot of people ... I don't think anybody was at a disadvantage. I think that definitely Melissa and Ade's piece was the strongest of the night and I think it overshadowed a lot of the pieces. But like I said, you can't worry about that stuff. You just gotta go out there and do your best.

Janette

Janette, on getting eliminated despite being a judges' favorite:
It actually makes it easier to go home. When Mia said that [I was her favorite dancer] to me last night, I was completely shocked and I couldn't believe that she felt that way about me. Me not being a contemporary dancer and her being a contemporary choreographer just made me feel very accomplished. It sucks that I couldn't achieve what Nigel and Mia wanted me to achieve. But at the same time I do go home with a sense of still winning. I still accomplished something great and I still reached a goal that I think a lot of other dancers would love -- and might still -- reach. So, it's bittersweet. It definitely did make it easier to go home when Nigel said that he felt that he wanted me to win this year. So, hard and easy. Yeah. Both at the same time [laughs].

Katie HolmesJanette, on Katie Holmes' performance and meeting Ellen DeGeneres:
When we found out that [Ellen] was gonna be one of the guest judges, I jumped for joy. I was like "Oh my God!" I was star-struck. I was so excited. We actually did get to meet her a little bit and talk to her after the show, and I definitely expressed to her how much of a fan I was [laughs]. And she said that had loved watching me dance and she had seen my other performances throughout the season, so it was very surreal to know that Ellen, this woman who I just adore as a comedian and as a talk-show host, had actually been watching me on television and knew who I was it. It was amazing. We didn't get to meet Katie Holmes. We saw her around a couple of times. But I was very, very, very impressed with her performance and her singing and dancing capabilities. It was cool. We were kind of all star-struck by the whole situation.
