How "So You Think You Can Dance" Kept Its Secret

How "So You Think You Can Dance" Kept Its Secret

This being the Internet, I was sure we'd have spoilers by now about the "So You Think You Can Dance" eliminations. The results show that normally would have aired on Thursday was preempted for football last week, but the show was already taped, so I thought for sure that members of the live audience would be leaking secrets left and right about which four dancers advanced to the finale.

Well, here we are on Monday, the day the delayed results show will air, and nobody (except the dancers and judges, presumably) actually seems to know who got kicked off. How did they do it? Well, it's simple, really — the producers just made the audience leave the room before revealing the actual results.

One account posted on the show's forum on Television Without Pity described the live audience being told each of the top six were moving on to the finals — presumably to get reaction for tonight's show — and then being ushered from the auditorium. From there, fake spoilers have been abundant, including on the show's Wikipedia site, which had to be locked because of the editing frenzy.

You know, I really didn't think Nigel Lythgoe and the producers could control the spoilers, but it seems like they've managed to keep their secret until the show airs tonight at 8 p.m. Well played, Lythgoe. Well played.

This has been the most boring season. I actually took it off my Tivo list. I like Lauren, she's too cute.

i didn't really think neil belonged in the top 6, but he has certainly decided to turn his game up when he needed to. no matter what happens, he deserves the best because he is a wonderful and sweet person. i'm glad i was able to have the chance to know him.

I'd be happy to see Lauren or Lacey go; as for the guys, I really don't have a preference about who stays or goes. I think it might be Neil, even though Sabra probably saved him with their partner dances last week. Should be fun tonight!
