Update: The World Series will preempt the first two weeks of SYTYCD results shows. The solution, according to a Fox press release, will have the judges choosing the two dancers to send home at the end of the Top 20 and Top 18 performance shows. Beginning on November 10, with the Top 16, things will get back to normal as viewer voting begins, and the dancers with the lowest votes are sent home during the hour-long results show on Wednesday, November 11 at 9 pm.
The Top 20 will be featured in their very own special on Monday, October 26 at 8/7c pm. The competition begins Tuesday, October 27. There will be NO results show the first two weeks of competition due to a scheduling conflict with the World Series.
The So You Think You Can Dance Season 6 Top 20:
Nathan Trasoras – 18 – Contemporary – Mia gives him a big spiel about being too young, but the fake out isn’t very convincing. He’s thrilled to make it.
Kathryn McCormick – 19 – Contemporary – She never stops crying, mostly about her family.
Channing Cooke – 18 – Contemporary – My Boston homegurl makes it. Nigel tells her she needs to work on chemistry with her partner.
Ariana Debose – 18 – Contemporary – Blink and you’ll miss her. Cannon Fodder
Ellenore Scott – 19 – Jazz – They kinda blew by her too, but no way this brilliant dancer is fodder
Billy Bell – 19 – Contemporary – Will have to put off his Julliard education (scholarship, no less) for SYTYCD.
Russel Ferguson – 20 – Krump – He’s a very versatile krumper who swears he’s never been trained (Don’t believe it!) He’s the first ever krumper to make the Top 20.
Kevin Hunte – 23 – Hip Hop – Hip Hop dancer, and cannon fodder, I’m afraid.
Bianca Revels – 20 – Tap – Nigel lays the fake-out on thick on the oft-rejected Bianca. But she’s finally in!
Phillip Attmore – 25 – Tap – Another tapper. He was super defensive during Vegas. He makes it.
Peter Sabasino – 22 – Tap – Is there room for a 3rd tapper? Of course there is! Oh Nigel telling Al Stewart jokes. Yikes.
Victor Smalley – 21 – Contemporary – Blah blah blah…he’s in, despite the judges hating his hair.
Jacob Karr – 19 – Contemporary – That was fast! Blink, and you missed it.
Mollee Gray – 18 – Jazz – Perky dancer from Utah. She hurt her foot in Vegas. They put her in the Top 20 despite her “childish” dancing.
Pauline Mata – 19 – Jazz – She injured her ankle in Vegas, but still, she makes the cut.
Noelle Marsh – 18 – Contemporary – Was cut in Vegas Season 5. Is buds with Mollee Gray. Season 6 is her year.
Legacy Perez – 28 – B Boy – They fake him out, and he falls for it! He’s in the Top 20
Paula VanOppen – She makes the Top 20…but…
Ryan DiLello – 28 – Ballroom – He’s hot. Ryan and his guns make the Top 20
Karen Hauer – 27 – Ballroom – She’s so much better than Ashleigh. What?
Ashleigh DiLello – 26 – Latin Ballroom – Wife of Ryan. Damn, she’s in! Because Paula VanOppen turned the Top 20 down for a movie role.
Some of the rejected:
Amber Jackson – CUT! she’s technical, but personality free, according to the judges. She’s mega-talented, I hope she comes back.
Gene Bursten – Faced the judges with Ryan DiLello
