Christina Perri to Perform 'Burning Gold' on Next SYTYCD

Last night, after America's vote was revealed on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, Carly Blaney, Emily James, Jessica Richens, Casey Askew, Teddy Coffey and Serge Onik were the three girls and three guys who received the fewest votes. In a dramatic, quadruple elimination at the end of the show, the judges - Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Christina Applegate - determined that Carly Blaney, Emily James, Teddy Coffey and Serge Onik would be sent home. Also on tonight's show, the second of the four featured dance crews, Academy of Villains, performed live.

Next week, on Wednesday, Aug. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the competition intensifies when guest judge and Olympic Gold Medalist Tara Lipinski joins the judging panel, as the Top 10 finalists - Rudy Abreu, Casey Askew, Tanisha Belnap, Emilio Dosal, Zack Everhart, Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey, Ricky Ubeda and Bridget Whitman - will be paired up with All-Star partners. The All-Stars include Stephen "tWitch" Boss (Season Four), Brandon Bryant (Season Five), Ryan DiLello (Season Six), Lauren Froderman (Season Seven), Jasmine Harper (Season Ten), Jenna Johnson (Season Ten), Kathryn McCormick (Season Six), Ade Obayomi (Season Five), Chehon Wespi Tschopp (Season Nine) and Amy Yakima (Season 10).

Christina Perri, whose song, "Jar of Hearts," led to overnight success and a record deal after being featured on the show, is back to perform her new single, "Burning Gold," from her "Head or Heart" album.

While Perri was working as a waitress in 2010, a friend of the then-unsigned aspiring singer/songwriter handed the demo for "Jar of Hearts" to So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Stacey Tookey, who used it for a Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick contemporary routine. The song immediately caught on with fans and hit No. 13 on iTunes, No. 23 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart, No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100, No. 10 on Amazon's Digital Singles chart and No. 2 on Billboard's Heatseekers countdown. With more than 100,000 copies sold, Perri was invited to the show to perform the song live two weeks later, and landed a deal with Atlantic Records soon thereafter
