Top Eight to compete Wed., Aug. 29 on FOX; Jesse Tyler Ferguson returns to guest judge
LOS ANGELES — Only four weeks remain until the new favorite male and female dancers are crowned on So You Think You Can Dance. Tonight, after America’s vote was revealed, Witney Carson, Audrey Case, George Lawrence II and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp were the two guys and two girls who received the fewest votes. After deliberating, the judges – Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Benjamin Millepied (“Black Swan”) – saved Witney Carson and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp from elimination and sent Audrey Case and George Lawrence II home.
The top ten finalists performed tonight for the first time with their All-Star partners. In addition, they performed an all-new group routine choreographed by Tyce Diorio. Also featured was a special performance by the L.A. Dance Project.
Next week, on Wednesday, Aug. 29 (7:00-9:00 p.m. live), the competition continues when the Top Eight finalists – Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson, Eliana Girard, Cole Horibe, Tiffany Maher, Cyrus Spencer, Will Thomas and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp– will be paired with new All-Star partners. Additionally, Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family”) will guest-judge.
