Next Results Show Airs Thursday, July 8
Finalist Melinda Sullivan, 22, a Tap dancer from Thousand Oaks, CA, was eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. After America’s vote was revealed, Billy Bell, Robert Roldan and Melinda Sullivan were the three dancers who received the fewest votes. Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels and Adam Shankman asked the three finalists to perform a solo routine and then eliminated Sullivan.
This week’s results show also featured special performances by R&B recording artist Ne-Yo and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All-Stars Courtney Galiano and Mark Kanemura, as well as dancers from Cirque du Soleil’s Viva ELVIS entertaining the audience with specially choreographed versions of “Return To Sender” and “Didja Ever.”
The competition continues next week on America’s favorite dance show when the remaining eight finalists (Billy Bell, Kent Boyd, Lauren Froderman, Ashley Galvan, Robert Roldan, Jose Ruiz, Adéchiké Torbert and Alex Wong) will dance two routines – one with an All-Star partner and one with a fellow contestant – on a two-hour live performance show Wednesday, July 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
