Hello everyone, and welcome to the Season 6 Finale of So You Think You Can Dance.  We start the night off with a high energy performance by our Top 20, to “Scared of Me” by Fedde Le Grand.  Cat comes out in her silver sequins to introduce all 6 judges for the night:  Lil’C, Tyce Diorio, Debbie Allen, Adam Shankman, Mary Murphy, and Nigel Lythgoe.  Who will win the grand prize of $250,000 and be on the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine?

After a shout out to all of the choreographers and a recap of last night’s performances, Cat informs us that Season 7 auditions start next month in Miami and New York.  Please go to www.fox.com/dance for more details.

The judges pick their favorite routines of the season for us to watch again.  Lil’C picks the Hip-Hop number by Kevin, Legacy, and Russell…WOW is all I can say!  Adam chooses Sonya’s piece choreographed for Ellenore and Jakob, and it’s even more powerful than the first time they performed it.  Nigel picks the Tap routine by Bianca, Peter, and Phillip.  Mary does something different…she chooses to see married couple Ashleigh and Ryan perform a brand new Jive, danced to “Straight To Number One” by Touch and Go.  It really was great to see them dance their own style together!

Leona Lewis comes out to perform the title track for the new movie “Avatar.  The song is “I See You”, a really gorgeous number that shows off Leona’s incredible voice.  After that, we have a dance performance by The Groovaloos, and their street style is incredible!

Nigel picks another performance, Kathryn and Jakob’s Contemporary from last night.  Tyce decides on Mollee and Nathan’s Bollywood routine, and I really am intrigued by this style.  I would love to learn it!

The Top 6 come out with a slight delay, due to the fact that Russell hurt his knee and is in extreme pain.  He leans on Ryan to come out on stage with everyone.  Cat announces that the dancer in 6th place is Ryan.

Adam Lambert performs next, and I really love his vocals on “What Do You Want From Me”.  Thankfully, he behaved himself on stage…nothing controversial in this performance!

We look back at the highs and lows of the entire season, and the remaining 5 are on stage, with Russell sitting on a stool.  Cat announces that the dancer in 5th place is Ashleigh.

Adam chooses another dance as well…Ellenore and Legacy’s dramatic “War of the Roses” type routine over the giant table.  He also believes that Travis Wall may be nominated for an Emmy for this one!  Debbie picks Noelle and Russell’s African Jazz, and since Russell is injured we see the tape of the original performance.  The Top 4 come back out, and Ellenore comes out in 4th place.

Lil’C chooses a number from the beginning of the season…”Crying” by Ariana, Channing, Jakob, and Nathan.  Mary decides on Kathryn and Russell’s Hip-Hop from last night, and again we see a tape of the original performance.

Mary J. Blige sings her hit “I Am”, flanked by 4 dancers representing mannequins on pedestals.  Nigel chooses one more routine, and it’s the Wade and Amanda Robson number for the Top 20 from the first week.  We find out that Kathryn is in 3rd place after last night’s votes.

Jennifer Lopez is on stage in a giant silver and red shoe, to perform her new song “Louboutins”.  Dancing with her are several girls from this season and past seasons of SYTYCD, with the number choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon.

We are down to Jakob and Russell…one of them is about to be crowned America’s Favorite Dancer.  Cat makes the announcement and the winner is…Russell!  Even though he is in pain, he gets down on his knees to thank God, and then thanks everyone else who helped him get to this moment.  This concludes another exiting season of So You Think You Can Dance.  Good night everybody!

Good evening everyone, and welcome to the Top 6 Finals of So You Think You Can Dance.  Cat comes out in a stunning red toga style dress and introduces the judges.  We begin right away with the dances, as all nine of them are crammed into a one hour show.

Kathryn and Ryan are first with a Samba, performed to “Magalenha” by Sergio Mendes.  I really love their animal like, sharp moves.  Nigel calls it a great start to the show.  Mary loves it, especially the great control.  Adam is blown away by Kathryn and thinks Ryan is a fantastic partner.

Ellenore and Jakob perform Broadway to “I Gotcha” from Fosse.  This is a wow number, very powerful and sexy.  Nigel says they showcased their strengths.  Mary calls Ellenore smoldering and Jakob tremendous.  Adam says this made Broadway relevant and current.

Ashleigh and Russell perform Lyrical Jazz to “Angel Standing By” by Jewel.  The routine is beautiful and emotional, filled with amazing lifts.  Nigel calls it outstanding and inspirational.  Mary loves Ashleigh’s gorgeous lines and passion, and says Russell is just special.  Adam says Ashleigh portrayed the guardian angel well, and Russell kicked the dance’s..well..butt!

Ellenore and Ryan perform Jazz to “Kontact Me” by Boys Noize.  They have great sync in their futuristic, robotic moves.  Nigel says it was more Techno than Jazz, but they did what was asked of them.  Mary loves the uniqueness and dynamic moments.  Adam says it was the perfect routine for Ellenore, and Ryan did a great job.

Ashleigh and Jakob perform a Foxtrot to “Let The Good Times Roll” by Chuck Brown and Eva Cassidy.  It’s classic and joyful, showing off old Hollywood glamour.  Nigel loves the outstanding chemistry.  Mary enjoys the beautiful quality of movement.  Adam says they showed each other off well.

Ellenore and Russell perform a Paso Doble to “Village Attack” from Blood Diamond, showing their strong moves and a hot quality.  Nigel thinks Russell was very good, but Ellenore was passionate and fiery.  Mary calls her a Spanish vixen and says Russell was passionate.  Adam calls it incredible and magnificent.

Kathryn and Jakob perform Contemporary to the Michael Buble version of “At This Moment”, and it’s powerful and passionate with incredible lifts.  Nigel says they just stopped the show. Mary calls it magical and one of the best performances she’s ever seen.  Adam says this one is a game changer, and shows how important dance is in our culture.

Ashleigh and Ryan finally get to dance together…a Contemporary number to “I’m There Too” by Michael Featherstone.  It is romantic, sweet, and beautiful, and they are both crying at the end and can’t stop.  Nigel says they both accounted for themselves very well this evening.  Mary says that as a married couple they just created a wonderful memory for themselves.  Adam loves their incredible tenderness.

Our last number is Hip-Hop by Kathryn and Russell, performed to “I Can Transform Ya” by Chris Brown.  They show off their power and great sync.  Nigel calls it tremendous.  Mary screams, and says they have her heart.  Adam thinks they tore up the dance floor and were so hot!

We see the recap of all of the dances as Cat reminds us to vote.  Tune in for the 2 hour finale tomorrow night, as America’s Favorite Dancer is crowned.  Good night everybody!

Hello everyone, here are the results for So You Think You Can Dance – Top 10.  We open the show with our 10 dancers performing to “It’s Still Rock & Roll To Me” by Billy Joel, choreographed by Tyce Diorio.  The routine has a great street feel, fun and sexy.

Cat reveals that the bottom 2 girls are Noelle and Kathryn.  The bottom 2 guys and Ryan and Nathan.

We have a performance by the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, dancing to “Yellow” by Vitamin String Quartet.  They perform a mix of Hip-Hop and Contemporary to this classical piece, and it works very well.  They prove they really are extraordinary dancers!

The bottom 4 perform their solos, which don’t count for votes now but show off why they are in the Top 10.  All perform their solos from last night, except for Nathan, who performs a new one.

After a performance from Snoop Dogg with America’s Best Dance Crew winners Quest, Cat reveals that Noelle and Nathan are going home tonight.  Both are very thankful for their time on the show, and they will get to perform on the SYTYCD Top 10 tour.  Good night everybody!
