'So You Think You Can Dance' Results: Two More Dancers Eliminated (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 8th 2011 2:25AM
'So You Think You Can Dance'In seasons past, the judges have split up couples in their eliminations, but that hasn't been the case leading into tonight's cuts on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). Each week, they've cut a paired couple, leaving all the other couples intact.

Even in the week when four people were eliminated out of a possible six, they cut two paired couples. That has to add to the pressure when competing as it must feel like your fate may be as tied to how well your partner does than how well you do.

But nothing in the rules says you have to do that, so would it continue as the Top 14 was whittled down to the Top 12? We have some strong couples, but there have been some instances where one partner has clearly shown more promise than the other.


When it came to America's vote, they went totally against the judges by putting Ryan and Ricky in the Bottom Three couples. Clearly, the strange fashion freak number didn't connect with the audience as well as it did the expert panel (and Carmen Electra). Joining them were Tadd and Jordan, who also received high marks for their smooth waltz.

America did get it right in sending Ashley and Chris to the bottom, as they were particularly disappointing in their salsa. It's interesting to note that both ballroom numbers wound up in the bottom, despite one of them performing strongly. Maybe the current 'SYTYCD' voting audience just isn't into this style of dance.

The judges were absolutely right to send Chris home, who gave the weakest performance of the night. But was Ashley more deserving than the other girls, or was she cut for being saddled with a sub-par partner? Once again, the judges voted along partnered lines and sent a couple home together. Did they make the right call this week in doing so again?

I wish every year that the show would lose the most annoying person: Mary Murhpy. She doesn't know very much about dance at all and I miss Mia Michaels, the best choreographer and very knowledeable and honest judge.

Ryan is the worst female dancer and Alexander is the worst male dancer. And Melanie is an excellent dancer, but unfortunately, her short fat legs limit her line.

Yes, but Melanie makes those legs look great and do that little extra that the other girls don't. She reminds me of that terrific blonde (can't remember her name) who won it all two years ago. Everything she did had that something extra in it. I love watching everytime Melanie dances.

I don't think Ashley deserved to be eliminated. Her solo and performance was beautiful.

Sorry to say, I'm not surprised ASHLEY WENT HOME, I thought that she was the WEAKEST FEMALE, they're touting the girls like their something special, not really I've watched every season & the last season was better in my opinion when it came to the girls on the show, I want to see a guy win this season just to surprise Nigel, he says that this is the strongest group of girls this season but I wouldn't be surprised if one of the dark horses [a b-boy or b-girl] wins this season, I just think that they ALL NEED TO STEP UP BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW HOW GOOD YOU ARE UNTIL THOSE VOTES ARE COUNTED

I think LAST week - they got it wrong. Ashley and Chris should have gone last week. I still am shocked that they let Robert go, especially over Chris. Plus I thought Robert's solo was great last week. And I can't remember the gal's name from last week they also let go, but she was another one who clearly could outdance Ashley...and all season so far the judges had just oooed and ahhhhed over her. Anyway, there's always going to be someone's favorites leaving week to week, so that's the way it is. And...defg77f - if you have been watching the show for any length of time - you then would know that "colored" people have won the title several times (Joshua and Russell?) and what about Twitch - down to the final, and that "colored" people are always among the top dancers competing. So you sound like like just another troublemaker trying to play the racist card .....grow up.

How do you people waste your evenings watching this garbage? It sure doesn't say a lot about your level of intelligence if this is all that is needed to entertain you.

I believe some of the choreography is HORRIBLE and usually, the poor kids who have to dance those ridiculous routines are the ones who are voted OFF. It's rather sad ! Can't they DANCE, instead of jumping around like monkeys ???
