"So You Think You Can Dance": Down to 10

"So You Think You Can Dance": Down to 10

If "So You Think You Can Dance" is really about finding America's favorite dancer, then it's unfortunate that someone who seemed to be a crowd favorite is heading home so soon. But Hok — always the recipient of the loudest cheers when the dancers perform — was eliminated on this week's results show, with the judges saying that while he's genius at his own style, he's not versatile enough to continue.

Anya will be joining Hok on the way home — but barely. The judges split 2-1 over whether she or Lauren would get to stick around; in the end, I think three weeks of having to dance partnerless ballroom solos did Anya in.

Once I saw that Hok and Jaimie, Lauren and Neil, and Danny and Anya were in the bottom three, I sort of figured Hok and Anya were out of time; the judges have consistently questioned each of their abilities to dance outside their preferred style, and this is the point in the competition where versatility matters most. Danny and Neil both delivered strong, high-flying solos, too, further hampering Hok's chances to move on. I think it was the right call, but I still can't understand what kept sending Hok to the bottom three in the first place; his votes just must not have matched the roar from the crowd every time he takes the stage.

After three weeks in the bottom three, Anya must have seen this elimination coming. While this was my favorite of her three solos, it clearly couldn't stand up to Jaimie's crazy leaps and kicks. Lauren delivered an OK performance, not fantastic but better enough than Anya's to keep her around. Honestly, at this point I'm having a hard time remembering why I rooted for Lauren when the competition started.

Next week, everything changes, with the partners being randomly assigned and the voters directly determining who gets eliminated. What did you think about tonight's round? Are you sad Hok won't be going on tour?

This is sad, Hok was really fantastic with Jamie, I wonder how she will be with Danny as a partner. Anya, eh, I could take or leave her. I hope they send Lauren home next week, she just bugs me, girl needs some clothes.

Although its sad to see Hok go can we take a minute to recognize how GOOD Pasha and Sara are dancing together! I thought this pairing would be the kiss of death for them!!

Nigel said that the decision for Hok to go was unanimous. I think Wade agreed that it was his time to go.

Don't think I'll watch now that Hok is gone! He is truly amazing to watch. I think the hummingbird/flower dance was the most beautiful performance from any of the SYTYCD seasons!

I voted for Hok last night so I can't say I'm one of those people that cheer for them but don't know. I really just wanted Hok to go on tour because than people can see the beauty of his performaces, expecially with the hummingbird and flower one. ONE OF MY FAVORITE PERFORMANCE OF ANY SEASON. Being the executive producer I'm surprise that Nigel didn't keep Hok. Last night he said that 2 voted Hok to leave so I'm sure it was WAde who was the one that wanted to keep Hok because he has expressed his admiration for him since he audition this season. Sad to see him go. :cry: I also got the feeling that Danny didn't even try because maybe he thought that being in the bottom three in row was taking a toll on the judges.

If Hok really was a fan favorite, he wouldn't have consistently been in the bottom three. If people loved hime so much they should have picked up the phone and voted. I liked Hok, but was ready to see him go. He really is not as versitile as the other dancers, while he is fun to watch.

i'm so bummed hok is gone. i sort of knew it was coming though. =( but he's not going to disappear into oblivion, people know who he is now, he should get some jobs lined up from this exposure. i didn't think danny's solo was all that great. it just seemed like his heart wasn't really into it. i don't think he was sincerely "dancing for his life".

Even with the criticsm, Hok seems to take it very well. He's very professional and that's impressive well...anytime really! I wish him all the best :-)

I think they made a mistake eliminating Hok this week. He is a fan favorite and the theme of the show is to find "America's Favorite Dancer". I love watching him dance and don't think he has been as bad at the ballroom dances as they keep saying. I think they will see the lack of Hok on the tour have an effect on ticket sales.

I am very sad that Hok will not be on tour because if he was, I would definetly consider going to see it. He was one of my favorite dancers and while he may not be as versatile as the others, he is an amazing performer and it's such fun to see him dance. I also really loved Anya, she seems to have a great personality and she was at the most disadvantage since she is a ballroom dancer but I thought she really tore it up last night.
