On Wednesday night’s Top 8 performance show, we learned that Alex Wong sustained an injury to what might be his Achilles’ heel. He received an MRI, and the doctors did not permit him to dance this week. Judge and Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe revealed that according to the new rules for Season 7, if a dancer is injured and misses the performances they will automatically be in the bottom three the next day. If he is unable to dance on next week’s show, he’ll be out of the competition.
