ASHLEY GALVAN IS ELIMINATED ON “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE”
TOP 6 FINALISTS COMPETE ON NEXT PERFORMANCE SHOW DURING 150TH EPISODE CELEBRATION WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, ON FOX
Latin Music Superstars Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull And Members of the American Ballet Theatre To Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, July 22
In another dramatic results show, injured contestant Ashley Galvan, 19, a Lyrical dancer from Visalia, CA, was eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. Unable to compete in last night’s performance show, Galvan was placed in the bottom three with the two dancers who received the fewest of America’s votes: Billy Bell and Jose Ruiz. Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels and Adam Shankman then announced that due to Galvan’s injury, she was unable to continue in the competition and therefore eliminated.
This week’s results show also featured special performances by singer Christina Perri, members of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and Dizzy Feet Foundation scholarship recipients Fernando Martin-Gullans and Lauren Vayser.
The competition continues next week on a very special episode celebrating the milestone 150th episode of America’s favorite dance show when the Top 6 (Billy Bell, Kent Boyd, Lauren Froderman, Robert Roldan, Jose Ruiz and Adéchiké Torbert) dance three routines – one with an All-Star partner, one with a fellow contestant and a solo – on a two-hour live performance show Wednesday, July 21 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, July 22 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to find out which dancer will be sent home next and to see performances by Latin music superstars Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull; members of the American Ballet Theatre; and two SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All-Stars.
