BREAKOUT POP SENSATION CARLY RAE JEPSEN
TO PERFORM ON SEASON FINALE OF “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE”
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, ON FOX
Top 20 Finalists Return to Perform on Season Finale
Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen will perform her newest single, “This Kiss,” on the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE season finale Tuesday, Sept. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
Jepsen is an international music sensation due, in part, to the many unofficial lip-synched viral videos of her hit single, “Call Me Maybe,” which spent nine weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart this past summer. Among the high-profile fans who created their own lip-synched videos were Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, Katy Perry and James Franco, not to mention the Harvard University Baseball team and the Southern Methodist University (SMU) Women’s Rowing team.
Don’t miss the season finale, when the Top Four finalists take the stage for the last time and America’s favorite male and female dancer are revealed on Tuesday, Sept. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. In addition to naming America’s Favorite Dancers, the Season Nine finale of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will feature performances by this season’s Top 20 dancers. The celebration will also showcase some of the judges’ favorite routines from the season.
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment and dick clark productions. The series is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Barry Adelman. Become a fan of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE on Facebook at www.facebook.com/soyouthinkyoucandance.

About Carly Rae Jepsen
Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen has taken America by storm, after bursting onto the U.S. scene with her hit single, “Call Me Maybe.” The unforgettably catchy song, which she co-wrote, quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remained for nine consecutive weeks, claiming the longest Hot 100 No. 1 run of 2012. Certified quintuple-platinum in Jepsen’s native Canada, the track is also an international sensation, climbing to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in more than 37 countries. Jespsen’s U.S. debut album, “Kiss,” will be released on Sept. 18 and her new single, “This Kiss,” is out now. She’ll hit the road this fall as a very special guest on Justin Bieber’s 2012 headlining tour of North America.
