The couples were reshuffled last night on “So You Think You Can Dance”, and they all performed in hopes of receiving votes from America that will enable them to remain in the competition.

Tanisha and Rudy were first and their moves were great, however, the passion seem lost in the mechanics of the choreography, next were Valerie and Ricky performing a Travis Wall’s Contemporary routine, and Ricky once again was outstanding, Valerie on the other hand just didn’t seem in her element, next were Bridget and Emilio with a Hip-Hop dance choreographed by Luther Brown and this genre being Emilio’s forte he undoubtedly shined, Bridget did better than expected, however, still has much to learn. Next up were Jessica and Nick that performed a West Coast Swing routine under the guidance of Benji Schwimmer and to say that they were outstanding in this quick stepping and high-energy routine would be an understatement, they both were fantastic. The next couple was Carly and Serge with a Contemporary routine choreographed by Sonya Tayeh, and it was full of love and intensity, one of those performances that will linger in the minds of those who are fans of dancing, for its beauty and unquestionable passion. Emily and Teddy were next with a Hip-Hop routine by Dave Scott, and they seemed in sync, however, Nigel Lythgoe, -judge and creator of the show-, pointed out some errors. Malene and Stanley were next performing a Broadway routine choreographed by Spencer Liff and while both held telephone receivers they performed a fantastic and fun routine that without question was not easy. Next were Jourdan and Marcquet with a Jazz routine by Sean Cheeseman and it was intense and exhilarating, both make a good couple that have made a connection. Brooklyn and Casey came next with a Tango under the guidance of Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo; it was a routine that encompassed the passion and intensity that this music carries through its instruments, outstanding performance. And the last couple was, Jacque and Zack with an African Jazz routine choreographed by Sean Cheeseman, it was high-energy and entertaining.

After last week’s performances the bottom three girls were Brookly, Jourdan, and Malene, and ultimately the dancer sent home was Malene. The bottom three guys were Nick, Serge, and Casey, and Nick was sent home. Recaps can be watched online and also voting can be done online at
