So You Think You Can Dance: Season 8, Episode 12 :: Top 14

This week on So You Think You Can Dance Season 8, the Top 14 took the stage and performed routines by a few new choreographers. Episode 12 aired on July 6, 2011.

First up was the judges favorites, Melanie and Marko. They performed a jazz number about a Latin couple with feuding families. Guest judge Travis Wall called Marko one of the strongest male dancers and dubbed Melanie his favorite dancer in the competition. Next, Sasha and Alexander performed a hip hop routine, in which Alex was trying to get a kiss from Sasha. Unfortunately, this performance fell short for the judges. Mary didn’t see the necessary swag from Alex and she didn’t feel the connection between the two.

Jordan and Tadd landed the smooth waltz this week, choreographed by Toni Redpath. The routine was about a beautiful girl who seduces a human man with her song. Mary called the routine dreamy and romantic. Clarice and Jess performed a contemporary routine. Travis believed the chemistry between the two of them, and called this dance his favorite routine from them all season. Ashley and Chris landed a salsa...which wasn’t quite as great as it should've been. Travis noted that they didn’t have as much energy as the other couples. And the second guest judge, Carmen Electra, said that their performance was almost there...but not quite.

Ryan and Ricky performed a jazz number that the judges called hot, hot, hot! Carmen said they had great energy, and Mary loved the quirkiness of the choreography. Mitchell and Caitlynn wrapped up the show with the best routine of the night - a beautiful, fearless Mandy Moore contemporary. They received a standing ovation from the judges. Mary spat out a handful of compliments, calling it “so beautiful” and “her favorite routine of the night.” She said they “defied gravity” and “couldn’t have done any better.”

Elimination

On July 7, 2011, Ricky and Ryan, Ashley and Chris, and Jordan and Tadd landed in the bottom three. Ultimately, the judges decided not to split any couples up, and sent Ashley and Chris home.
