Hello everyone, and welcome to our first results show of the season for So You Think You Can Dance.  We start off with a performance from the Top 11 to “Acapella” by Kelis, choreographed by Tessandra Chavez.  Cat comes out dressed in shiny red plaid, and I’m thinking it must be Christmas in June…she looks ready for a holiday party!  After she introduces the judges, Nigel tells us about something special happening on July 31st.  That day will be National Dance Day, and the idea is for everyone around the country to dance and have fun whether they are “dancers” or not.  Tabitha and Napoleon have created a special dance to learn for this day, and you can watch and learn at www.dizzyfeetfoundation.org.  I went over there to sneak a peek at it and it’s going to be a blast!

Cat then gets right down to business and brings the dancers out in groups to let them know their fate.  Alex, Robert, Lauren, and Kent are all safe.  Melinda is in the bottom 3.  Billy and Ashley are safe, and Alexie is in the bottom 3.  Jose and Adechike are safe…Cristina is in the bottom 3.  The three girls go off to get ready for their solos.

We are treated to an incredible performance from the show Come Fly Away, which was created by Twyla Tharp. I was mesmerized watching them.   Karine Plantadit and Keith Roberts are amazing!  Such a powerful performance…I would love to go see the entire show.  WOW!!!

The three solos come after this performance, and it’s an impossible act to follow.  Still, these girls have to dance for their lives now.  Melinda dances to “I Got The Feelin'” by James Brown, showing off the tapping that got her here in the first place.  Alexie sweetly dances to “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” by Otis Redding.  Cristina dances to “La Guaracha” by Celia Cruz and Tito Puente, and it’s easy to get caught up in her hot Salsa!

As the judges go off to discuss which of the three girls will be going home, Usher sings his new song “OMG”.  He and all of his dancers are very impressive.  Then he introduces the world premiere of his video with Justin Bieber, “Somebody to Love”.  The video is very creative, but I certainly like Usher’s part better than Justin’s.  Of course, I’m sure all of the teen and pre-teen girls enjoyed it.  The two come off as a very odd couple to me.

Finally it’s that time.  Nigel announces that the judges are unanimous in their decision, and Alexie is sent home.  Along with a montage and goodbyes from her friends, the judges remind her that she is wonderful and she will still go far as a dancer.  Tune in on Wednesday as the Top 10 perform for our votes.  Good night everybody!
