"So You Think You Can Dance": Four dancers sent packing
The judges, Mary Murphy, Adam Shankman and Nigel Lythgoe, had the chance to save only two contestants -- one from the bottom three female dancers and another from the bottom three male dancers.
"We don't vote anybody off, we only save people," Lythgoe said Wednesday night.
The evening kicked off with Lindsay Arnold, 18, performing a dentist-patient routine with 26-year-old karate master Cole Horibe. Lythgoe and Murphy called the routine a little immature, but fun.
Some of the evening's highlights included the tango dance performed by ballroom dancer Nick Bloxsom-Carter, 20, and contemporary dancer Amber Jackson 21. Lythgoe called the routine "tremendous."
Jazz dancer Audrey Case, 18, and contemporary dancer Matthew Kazmierczak, 21, also won over the judges. "You're probably one of America's favorite couples," Lythgoe told the pair, who performed a contemporary dance.
With the highlights, though, come eliminations.
Six dancers didn't tally enough votes: Belly dancer Janelle Isis, 24, contemporary dancer Alexa Anderson, 19, and Latin dancer Witney Carson, 18. The lowest-scoring men were ballet dancer Daniel Baker, 24, ballroom dancer Nick Bloxsom-Carter, 20, and 23-year-old ballet dancer Chehon Wespi-Tschopp.
Carson and Wespi-Tschopp were saved by the judges, which meant the other four hopefuls were sent packing.
