Rixton to Perform; Christina Applegate to Judge on FOX's SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, 8/20

Rudy Abreu and Tanisha Belnap were eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, after America's vote was revealed. Also on tonight's show, Michael Jackson's new single, "A Place With No Name," was featured in the Top Eight group performance, choreographed by Jackson choreographer Travis Payne. A preview of the song's never-before-seen music video also was screened. In addition, each of the Top Eight performances of contestants with their All-Star Partners featured a Michael Jackson song, either one of his classics or from his current album.

Next Wednesday, Aug. 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on FOX, returning guest judge, actress and dancer Christina Applegate will join judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, as the Top Six finalists - Casey Askew, Zack Everhart, Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey and Ricky Ubeda - will be paired up with All-Star Partners to perform for America's votes. The All-Stars include Stephen "tWitch" Boss (Season Four), Makenzie Dustman (Season 10), Fik-Shun (Season Ten), Anya Garnis (Season Three), Ade Obayomi (Season Five) and Will Wingfield (Season Four). Tune in for a special appearance from Rixton, who will perform their hit single, "Me & My Broken Heart."
