So You Think You Can Dance: Season 10, Week 8 :: The Top 20 Perform/2 Eliminated

Jul 03, 2013

This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 10, Week 8), the first two contestants are eliminated! Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “The Top 20 Perform/2 Eliminated” which aired on July 2nd, 2013, to discover what you missed.

Elimination

SYTYCD changed up the format again this season. Instead of the traditional two episodes per week or last season's elimination at the end of the show, the program begin the show with the elimination. It seemed like a brutal decision considering that the eliminated contestants were still required to perform their routines with their partners at a time when they should be grieving. Fortunately, when ballroom dancer Brittany and contemporary dancer Carlos were given the boot, they still managed to pull off winning performances.

The Performances

The routines kicked off with Hayley and Curtis performing a Ray Leeper jazz number. It was the first of many sexy performances that night, Nigel Lythgoe noticed. He said that Hayley moved parts of her body that he didn't know could move.

Jasmine H. and Aaron performed a Tabitha and Napoleon hip hop routine. Mary Murphy thanked them for a chemistry lesson, even though the contestants themselves were concerned about bringing the chemistry. Looks like they've got it in spades!

Malece and Jade tackled a Bollywood number choreographed by Nakul Dev Mahajan. Guest judge Christina Applegate said that even though the routine was so far out of their comfort zones, they pulled it off. However, Jade, being a b-boy, needs to work harder than everyone else to pull off a successful routine.

Next, Alexis and Nico performed a Stacey Tookey contemporary piece. It was designed as a sequel to the war routine performed by Kathryn McCormick from season 6. Nigel said that Nico gets better every week, and, considering that Alexis is a tapper, she did very well with contemporary.

Brittany, who has already learned her fate in the competition, and BluPrint landed a Spencer Liff Broadway routine set in a library. Mary loved that it was fun and light hearted, although she critiqued BluPrint on his lines. "You have to dig deeper," she advised.

Jasmine M. and Alan tackled an evil-inspired ballroom routine choreographed by Miriam and Leonardo. Christina gave the duo a standing ovation, while the other judges couldn't say enough about their passion and intensity.

Makenzie and Paul performed a Sean Cheesman jazz number which told the story of a crazy scientist and his deadly fembot. After watching this performance and getting a little hot and bothered, Nigel said that he couldn't believe that Makenzie had landed in the bottom 3 this week.

Mariah and the eliminated contestant Carlos performed a contemporary routine about a man suffering from amnesia after an accident and the woman who loves him. Again the judges couldn't believe that Carlos wound up in the bottom (then why didn't they save him?). The performance oozed passion and showed better chemistry than any other routine that evening.

Amy and Fik-Shun performed a fun hip hop routine about two bellhops, choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon. Nigel said that both of them light up the studio when they dance. It must be true because they certainly put a smile on the judges faces.

Rounding out the show was Jenna and Tucker, who performed a Dmitry Chaplin cha cha, which Nigel said was less cha cha and more general in its style. It seemed as if he was blaming the dancers for the choreography since he didn't even address Dmitry about his error. Yet after Nigel's rant, he finished by saying "but it's not your fault" to the dancers.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

It was worse than it intended to be.
