Truth rating: 10

Ricky Ubeda had a new partner on Wednesday’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” but that didn’t jeopardize his frontrunner status.

The dancer once again won raves across the board after performing a contemporary routine with fellow Top 20 finalist Valerie Rockey.

“Rickey, I can’t get enough of you. I think you’re really, really, really amazing,” said guest judge Misty Copeland, further pointing out that Rockey can “learn” and “benefit from looking at him.”

Nigel Lythgoe commended the pair for their chemistry, and specifically told Ubeda, “At this moment in time you’re giving us everything you can, and it’s wonderful to see.”

And Mary Murphy deemed the routine “magnificent.”

Ubeda and Rockey will remain partners until the Top 10 — and it seems highly likely they’ll make it to that milestone.
