“So You Think You Can Dance” Results: Who Was Eliminated And Who Won Twitter Save On “SYTYCD”? (VIDEO)
“So You Think You Can Dance” said goodbye to two contestants on Tuesday, after a Twitter save that gave a few contenders a chance at redemption.
As Gossip Cop reported, the Top 20 for season 12 was revealed earlier this month with the dancers broken into “stage” and “street” categories for the first time. And there was another new twist for the FOX competition. Following in the footsteps of “American Idol” (and “The Voice” before that), dancers in jeopardy of elimination would get a chance to win a Twitter save at the end of the episode. The new format, which began last week, features a Bottom Six, three from Team Stage and three from Team Street.
Based on votes from last week’s episode, those in danger were stage dancers Moises Parra, Edson Juarez, and Kate Hartpootlian, and street dancers Asaf Goren, Ariana Crowder, and Burim Jusufi. After the night’s normal performances, the Twitter window opened for viewers to save just two of the six, one out of each grouping. So, how did it work out?
Well, first Crowder and Hartpootlian were saved via Twitter by earning more tweeted votes than their competitors. That left the fate of Parra and Juarez (stage) and Goren and Jusufi (street) in the judges’ hands. And they chose to save Juarez and Goren, thereby eliminating Parra and Jusufi. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Juarez is in the midst of a comeback after getting eliminated last season, and Asaf clashed with the judges during the Las Vegas callbacks, but his growth has now won the panel over.
Now 16 contestants remain, evenly divided between stage and street performers. See video of the save and elimination below. TELL US: What do you think of tonight’s results?
