ALEX WONG IS ELIMINATED ON “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” TOP 7 FINALISTS COMPETE ON NEXT PERFORMANCE SHOW WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, ON FOX
Singer Christina Perri and Members of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre To Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, July 15
In a dramatic results show, injured contestant Alex Wong, 23, a Ballet dancer from Vancouver, Canada, was eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. Unable to compete in last night’s performance show, Wong was placed in the bottom three with the two dancers who received the fewest of America’s votes: Billy Bell and Ashley Galvan. Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels and Adam Shankman then announced that due to Wong’s injury, he was unable to continue in the competition and therefore eliminated.
This week’s results show also featured special performances by pop sensation Natasha Bedingfield, the cast of Broadway’s Tony Award-winning smash hit “In The Heights” and SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All-Stars Anya Garnis and Pasha Kovalev.
The competition continues next week on America’s favorite dance show when the Top 7 (Billy Bell, Kent Boyd, Lauren Froderman, Ashley Galvan, Robert Roldan, Jose Ruiz and Adéchiké Torbert) 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 14 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
Tune in the following night, Thursday, July 15 (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 singer Christina Perri, whose single “Jar of Hearts” rocketed up the iTunes charts after being featured on last week’s performance show; members of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre; and Dizzy Feet Foundation scholarship recipients Fernando Martin-Gullans and Lauren Vayser.
