This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 9, Episode 9), the Top 16 dancers performed, and at the end of the show 1 guy and 1 girl were eliminated. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 16 Perform,” which aired on July 25, 2012, to discover what you missed.

The Performances

Following last week’s tough elimination of 4 amazing dancers, George and Tiffany opened the show with a cute hip hop number about two babysitters going insane because the baby they're watching just won’t go to sleep! Nigel thought it was a great routine to open the show, though he thought George looked like he was getting a bit tired toward the end.

Brandon and Amber performed a sexy jazz routine. Guest judge Christina Applegate thought that it was so private that the audience shouldn’t have been watching it live. It was the best she had seen Amber dance and she couldn’t believe Brandon was just a stepper.

Janelle and Dareian disappointed the judges with their cha-cha, choreographed by SYTYCD’s own Pasha. Ballroom expert Mary Murphy called it rough and commented on their poor footwork. Christina couldn’t get over Dareian’s “strange hand things.”

Cole and Lindsay knocked it out of the park with a Mandy Moore contemporary piece. Nigel noticed Lindsay’s growth and maturity and how Cole is so meticulously neat and tidy about all of his movements.

Amelia and Will are the dream team, according to Christina. Their chemistry is spot on, even if this week’s quirky jazz routine wasn’t as amazing as previous weeks. The judges were extremely split in their opinions of this routine.

Audrey and Matthew had a rough time with their salsa routine and a lot of it had to do with the music’s slow tempo. While they are one of Mary’s favorite couples, she said they looked uncomfortable on stage.

Witney and Chehon earned the first standing ovation of the night with their Stacey Tookey contemporary piece to Whitney Houston’s "I Will Always Love You." One powerful move made a huge impact on Mary Murphy and she called it the defining moment of the season.

Closing the show, Cyrus and Eliana drew hip hop with Tabitha and Napolean. The choreographers played to their strengths by designing a routine about a ballerina in a jewelry box. This earned another standing ovation from the judges. Mary put them both on the hot tamale train.

Elimination

Based on last week’s votes, 3 guys and 3 girls landed in the bottom 6 dancers: Amber, Lindsay and Eliana, along with George, Brandon and Dareian. The judges asked Amber, Eliana, Brandon and Dareian to dance for their lives. Ultimately, the judges saves made it so that Amber and Brandon were eliminated from the competition even though their performance this week was one of the strongest of the bunch.
