Tonight on the first SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE performance and results show, the 10 couples performed again with brand-new routines. After America’s vote was revealed, Daniel Baker, Nick Bloxsom-Carter, Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, Alexa Anderson, Witney Carson and Janaya French were the three guys and three girls who received the fewest votes.
After deliberating, the judges – Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Adam Shankman – saved one guy and one girl – Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Witney Carson – from elimination, and therefore Daniel Baker, Nick Bloxsom-Carter, Alexa Anderson and Janaya French were sent home. In addition, the cast from the new movie “Step Up Revolution” also appeared on tonight’s show. Lythgoe also reminded viewers that the third annual National Dance Day will take place on Saturday, July 28, the same day as The Dizzy Feet Foundation’s second annual Celebration of Dance gala at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles.
