So You Think You Can Dance is back for its 5th season, and this year has the most talented Top 20 yet! The season began with some amazing, emotional and funky choreography, such as Wade Robson’s Crash Test Dummies jazz routine danced by Ashley and Kupono.


The Couples and Performances

  • Jeanine and Phillip danced a hip-hop routine choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon. The judges were impressed calling their performance “un-freakin-real.”

  • Asuka and Vitolio performed Tyse Diorio’s Broadway routine where they pretended to be an actress and director in a silent film. The judges thought they danced it well, but played the routine safe, not giving their performance enough energy and personality.

  • Karla and Jonathan danced the cha-cha choreographed by Tony Meredith. The judges called their performance fantastic, exciting, challenging and entertaining.

  • Randi and Evan performed a jazz routine by Tyse Diorio. The judges were very impressed. Despite being “vertically challenged,” the judges felt that they danced like they were 8-feet tall.

  • Paris and Tony danced the night’s second hip-hop routine, also choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon. The judges felt that it was “just good” and not memorable.

  • Caitlin and Jason performed a challenging Bollywood routine choreographed by Nakul Dev Mahajan. The judges thought their performance rocked, even when comparing it to last season’s brilliant Bollywood number by Katie and Joshua.

  • Janette and Brandon worked with choreographer Louis Van Armstrong to tackle the Fox Trot. The judges called their number “absolutely lovely.”

  • Ashley and Kupono danced a Crash Test Dummies jazz routine choreographed by Wade Robson. The judges were both weirded out and impressed by Wade’s strange choreography, and they complimented the way Ashley and Kupono embodied their characters while dancing beautifully.

  • Melissa and Ade landed season 5’s first contemporary routine by choreographer Mandy Moore. The judges were extremely moved, calling their performance elegant and special.

  • Kayla and Max closed the evening with a samba choreographed by Louis Van Armstrong. The judges were shocked by their brilliant and fiery performance. Mary Murphy even dished out her first two tickets to the Hot Tamale Train.

  • Elimination Results

    America’s votes left six contestants in the bottom three couples including Paris and Tony, Asuka and Vitolio, and Karla and Jonathan. After deliberation, the judges decided to send Paris and Tony home.

    A sudden gust of wind blew it out of my hand and I never saw it again. I was kidnapped by terrorists and they only just let me go, so I didn't have time to do it. The lights in our house went out, and I had to burn it to get enough light to see the fuse box. Another pupil fell in a lake, and I jumped in to rescue him. My homework though drowned. I used it to fill a hole in my shoe; you wouldn't want it now. My father had a nervous breakdown and he cut it up to make paper dolls. My pet gerbils had babies, and they used it to make a nest. I didn't do it, because I didn't want the other kids in the class to look bad. I made a paper plane out of it and it got hijacked. ET stopped by my house and he accidentally took it home with him.
