So You Think You Can Dance 8 – Top 10 Results

Mitchell Kelly & Clarice Ordaz are eliminated

Last year, there was a Top 10 and the public did not take over the eliminations until later in the season, now that we’re back to a Top 20, it looks like Nigel has decided not to give the public back the vote at the Top 10. Oh. Nigel’s controlling ways. He’d run Idol the same way if he were allowed.

Having said that, I don’t really have any complaints about tonight’s elimination. Both Clarice and Mitchell had solid runs on the show, but at this stage of the game, the competition is fierce.  Every elimination from this point on is going to be tough.

Next week’s guest judges will be global pop icon Lady Gaga and multi-award-winning director and choreographer Rob Marshall, and the All-Star Partners making a return to the So You Think You Can Dance stage will be Lauren Froderman (s7 winner) Anya Garnis (s3), Jaimie Goodwin (s3), Lauren Gottlieb (s3), Neil Haskell (s3), Ivan Koumaev (s2), Pasha Kovalev (s3) and Ade Obayomi (s5).

Live blogging the So You Think You Can Dance results right here tonight. Neil Patrick Harris will be back on the judges panel. Plus, stay tuned for special performances by the pan-Asian, all-female pop group Blush – who will make their American television debut with rapper Snoop Dogg – and ballet dancer Daniil Simkin.

Cat looks scrumptious!

Tonight we reveal the bottom 2 girls and the bottom 2 guys. Hello judges! Ha ha. Neil calls Cat a sexy little minx. On other shows the group number tend to be “hmmm”. What could he ever be talking about! Ha. Neil loves SYTYCD group numbers.

First 3 contestants take the stage.

Mitchell is first. He’s IN DANGER. Melanie and Tadd are next. They are both  SAFE. Kind of a weak fake-out Cat! I knew they were both safe.

Back from break. Marko is next, and of course he is safe. He looked so nervous! Sasha and Clarice are next. Clarice is IN DANGER. Sasha is safe. Not a surprise!

Jess and Ricky are next.  Ricky is IN DANGER. Jess is SAFE.  Caitlyn and Jordan are next.  Jordan is IN DANGER. Caitlyn is SAFE

Daniil Simkin performs next.

FILLER! A video package featuring the dancers visiting the Gatorade testing thingy.

SolosClarice is first, Mitchell is next “Time and Space”,

Solos: Jordan, “Tonight” by Lykki Li and then Ricky “Battle for the Beat”

Blush feat. Snoop Dogg take the stage. These chicks are like an even crappier Spice Girls.

The judges backstage…Neil Patrick Harris looks VERY ANIMATED!

Results!  Nigel mentions how some of the best, like twitch and Allison, found themselves in the B3.  He’s sorry 2 are going home, because they are all fantastic.  The decision was unanimous.

Mitchell and Clarice are quickly eliminated.  See you on the tour!
