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.
