No One Is Eliminated in the First Round of So You Think You Can Dance Season 8

Are You Glad That No One Went Home on So You Think You Can Dance?

Well, this elimination episode was a shocker! After the first round of performances on So You Think You Can Dance, Nigel and the other judges decided not to send anyone home. There were seven people in the bottom this week: Jordan, Clarice, Miranda, Jess, Tadd, Robert, and Mitchell (who was already automatically in the bottom because he was injured and unable to compete this week). They each danced for their lives, and you could smell that something was up when Nigel asked Mitchell and Robert to dance a second time.

Ultimately, Nigel announced that no one would go home because America hasn't seen enough of the contestants, and next week, two couples will be sent home instead. While I definitely agree that I haven't seen enough of anyone to form an opinion on favorites, isn't that kind of the point of these elimination shows? Let me know if you're happy that no one was cut, or if you wish they'd stuck to the format.

They already announced that there will be a double elimination next week. And I would have liked to have seen someone go home. Not because there's anyone in particular that I don't like, but just because that's the way the show is structured.

i hope it's not mean of me to say that i wish that someone had been sent home. i get why they did what they did but i think that there's a system to doing things that means that we should see someone get let go each week. i'm sure they are banking on injuries getting people out of the show later in the season since there's a set # of episodes. if not, we'll see double/triple eliminations later on

Well first of all I thought Ashley and Chris should have been in the bottom three. But of the ones the did pick, the only person who I felt like should go home would have been Jordan. Frankly, I'm glad they all live another day to dance. http://rantsofacrazyperson.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/so-you-think-you-can-dance-2-of-20-voted-off/
