Last night was the first time this season we've split up a couple in the eliminations of "So You Think You Can Dance." Faina was somehow given the boot while her partner Cedric was not, despite the judges telling her she was dragged down by his performances. Lucky for Cedric, he can out-Gumby-dance pretty much anyone ever, and his solo saved him once again. Jimmy's high kicks apparently were no match — despite the judges repeatedly saying he was the better dancer — and he had to say goodbye as well.
I agreed with the judges that Jessi's solo dance was weak, considering she mostly just pulled her dress over head over and over again. The judges were also unimpressed with Pasha's solo, but apparently they have faith in his potential. Nigel's speech about originality vs. exceptional dancing must have been nerve-wracking for Cedric. Maybe he'll pull out something amazing next week, though? The pressure is definitely high on him.
What did you guys think? Did the right two go home? Do you think Shauna is excited or nervous to dance with Cedric next?
