After a summer filled with ups (all stars!) downs (injuries) and some all-around spectacular routines, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ is winding down its seventh season. And on this week’s results show (Thu., 9PM on FOX), host Cat Deeley revealed that more than 10 million votes were cast to determine the final three contestants competing for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer.
The first person announced safe was jazz dancer (and last woman standing) Lauren. Then Kent — that corn-fed contemporary/jazz wonder from Wapakoneta, Ohio — was also ushered through, and the soundstage was nearly brought down by ecstatic tween screams.
And perhaps riding the wave of momentum that only increased with his impressive Viennese waltz and hip-hop routines from the night before, Robert nabbed the coveted finale’s third and final slot.
Which left fellow contemporary dancer AdéChiké the odd man out. And while he was emotional during Wednesday night’s performance show, the dancer from Brooklyn was as cool as a cucumber upon discovering his fate. “It been an honor to be on the show,” he said. “This is not the end of the road. This is only the beginning of the journey.”
When Cat asked what he’ll miss most about his ‘SYTYCD’ experience, Chiké flashed his pearly whites and pointed to his fellow contestants down on the floor. “The homies, man,” he grinned.
“Who knew that homies came from Wapakoneta?” Cat wondered.
