“Black Swan’s” Benjamin Millepied to Guest-Judge
and Special Performance by L.A. Dance Project
Tonight, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE paid tribute to Emmy Award winner Mia Michaels, with the seven couples performing a selection of her greatest SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE routines. The Top 14 also performed an all-new group routine choreographed by Michaels.
After America’s vote was revealed, Matthew Kazmierczak, Dareian Kujawa, George Lawrence II, Lindsay Arnold, Janelle Issis and Amelia Lowe were the three guys and three girls who received the fewest votes. After deliberating, the judges – Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judges Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt (the Ballet Boyz) – saved Lindsay Arnold and George Lawrence II from elimination. Therefore, Matthew Kazmierczak, Dareian Kujawa, Janelle Issis and Amelia Lowe were sent home.
It was also announced that fans can see the Top 10 finalists on tour this fall. The tour kicks off in San Diego, CA, Tuesday, Oct. 23 and tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 24. More details can be found on www.fox.com/dance.
Next week, on Wednesday, Aug. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the competition continues on another two-hour show, when the Top 10 finalists – Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson, Audrey Case, Eliana Girard, Cole Horibe, George Lawrence II, Tiffany Maher, Cyrus Spencer, Will Thomas and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp – will be paired up with All-Star partners. Additionally, French ballet dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, who is best known for starring in and choreographing “Black Swan,” will guest-judge and the L.A. Dance Project will perform a special routine.
