The 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judges Make a Very Odd Decision (VIDEO)

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judges Make a Very Odd DecisionWelcome back to 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 9PM ET on Fox). It's elimination time, so someone needs to be kicked off. ... Right? But when it came time to do the eliminating, Nigel Lythgoe confessed that the judges were suffering from a mild bout of confusion.

"We haven't made up our minds," Nigel said to host Cat Deeley.

" ... You haven't?" Cat replied.

[Spoiler alert.]

Billy, Robert, and Jose were up for potential elimination. Last night, as you may remember, Billy Bell became the third injured dancer on this season's show. And the previous two injured dancers have already left the contest. ... What to do, what to do? Should another wounded contestant be bounced off the series? Billy made the judges' decision a little harder -- because doctors had cleared him to dance. Yet he still refused to perform this week.

In the end, the judges made a highly unusual -- and highly unprecedented -- decision. No one would be eliminated. Billy, Jose, and Robert would all be kept on. But two dancers will be kicked off next week to make up for the free pass tonight.

What do you think? Should Billy have danced this week, since doctors gave him the go-ahead? And what about this weird move by the judges? Was it a sign of mercy? Or a sign that the show's producers are freaking out after having lost so many contestants to injuries?
