Not much suspense, since AdeChike had given what amounted to a farewell speech on Wednesday' show, and Mia was so relentless in her criticism of his work, only major fan backlash could have saved him. But I don't really have a favorite from those remaining: Lauren and Robert have both seemed kind of bland, and I am really tired of Kent's aw-shucking. I did like the Flo Rida song, and as tired as I am of "Step Up 3D" promotion I might want to see it. Or 15 minutes of it. Anyway, the official word from Fox:
Kent Boyd, Lauren Froderman and Robert Roldan were named this season’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Top 3 finalists after an amazing 10 million votes were cast last night. Eliminated tonight was AdéChiké Torbert, 23, a Contemporary dancer from Brooklyn, NY.
This week’s results show also featured special performances by rap sensation Flo Rida, smash recording artist Janelle Monáe and Complexions Contemporary Ballet founder Desmond Richardson.
More after the jump.
The final performance show, airing Wednesday, Aug. 11 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX, will feature the ultimate showdown between the Top 3 finalists as they compete to impress judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels and Adam Shankman and capture America’s vote. Immediately following the performance show, the phone lines will open and viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite remaining finalists.
Then, tune in the following night, Thursday, Aug. 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), for one of the most-anticipated television events of the summer. The two-hour live finale will showcase the judges’ favorite routines from the season, as well as performances by indie rock duo Black Gold; dance sensations Quest Crew; Charlie Bruce, the winner of the U.K. version of “So You Think You Can Dance”; and tap-dancing siblings the Manzari Brothers. At the end of the celebration, host Cat Deeley will reveal America’s vote, and America’s Favorite Dancer will be crowned live before millions of television viewers.
