SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Announces Michael Jackson-Themed Episode; 2014 Tour!
Last night, after America's vote was revealed on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, Jacque LeWarne, Bridget Whitman, Emilio Dosal and Zack Everhart were the two girls and two guys who received the fewest votes. At the end of the show, Emilio Dosal and Bridget Whitman were sent home, based on America's votes. Also on tonight's show, Christina Perri, whose song, "Jar of Hearts," led to overnight success and a record deal after being featured on the show, was joined by All-Stars Kathryn McCormick and Chehon Wespi Tschopp for a performance of her new single, "Burning Gold" from her "Head or Heart" album.
On Wednesday, Aug. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on a special themed-episode, each performance will be choreographed to a Michael Jackson song, either one of his classics or one from his current album, "Xscape." Jackson's new single, "A Place With No Name," from "Xscape," will be featured in the Top Eight group performance.
Returning guest judge, actress and dancer Jenna Dewan-Tatum will join judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, as the Top Eight finalists - Rudy Abreu, Casey Askew, Tanisha Belnap, Zack Everhart, Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey and Ricky Ubeda - will be paired up with All-Star Partners as they perform for America's votes. The All-Stars include Stephen "tWitch" Boss (Season Four), Ryan Di Lello (Season Six), Makenzie Dustman (Season 10), Comfort Fedoke (Season Four), Jaimie Goodwin (Season Three), Allison Holker (Season Two), Nick Lazzarini (Season One) and William Wingfield (Season Four). Also on the show, the third of the four featured dance crews, Control Freakz, will perform live.
