Logan Hernandez and Allison Holker finally got to perform a contemporary routine together for “So You Think You Can Dance” during Monday’s live show, and they received a standing ovation for it. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Hernandez entered season 14 of “So You Think You Can Dance” as an extraordinary contemporary dancer. But when he did a dance of that style on the year’s first live episode, he had to do so without Holker. The All-Star injured herself during camera blocking and was forced to send in a substitute. In the time since, the competition’s gone from the Top 10 to, by the end of tonight, the Top 4. And finally, the opportunity to do a contemporary routine together came back around.

Before getting to work, Hernandez told his partner, “It’s a beautiful journey so far… and I couldn’t have asked for a better All-Star.” And though Holker is the pro, she told her young charge, “You’re one of my newest, biggest inspirations.” The performance was built around a rose, with a stem representing the backbone of a romantic relationship and the fallen petals symbolizing the past. While Holker observed that this was “not necessarily a healthy” romance they were depicting, Henandez predicted, “It’s going to be a very beautiful experience.”

Indeed, the routine was filled with both angst and beauty, and culminated in a standing ovation from all of the judges. Vanessa Hudgens went as far as calling it the “sexiest contemporary routine I have ever seen in my life.” She went on, “My gosh, I mean, you always blow me away. There was so many incredible moments… The two of you together were just on fire tonight in a way I haven’t seen before.”

Mary Murphy gushed about Hernandez’s skills, noting, “I’ve never seen so many unique and interesting turns on all the seasons of [the show]… You have turned out to be a faulous partner.” Agreed Nigel Lythgoe, “Logan’s technique is undeniable.” But he also told the contestant, “I want to feel a little more emotion. I want you to dig down and show us your vulnerability as well.” Check out the video below! UPDATE: Stunningly, Hernandez was eliminated at the end of the show.
