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.
