So You Think You Can Dance Results July 18 2016


“So You Think You Can Dance” had its first live elimination for season 13’s “The Next Generation” on Monday. Check out the results below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, this year’s Top 10 is comprised of dancers all between the ages of 8 and 13. Each has been paired with an All-Star as a dance partner and mentor for the FOX competition. And last week, the pairs all performed live for the first time.

It was also the first time America could vote for which young dancers they’d like to see continue in the competition. Now, on tonight’s installment, the contestants primarily performed with each other in duets. But towards the end of the episode, it was elimination time based on last week’s votes.

Host Cat Deeley revealed Sheaden (age 12, hip-hop with All-Star Marko Germar) and Daniela (age 11, ballroom with All-Star Jonathan Platero) were the bottom-two dancers. And it was up to the panel of judges to decide who would stay and who would go. They ultimately chose Daniela to eliminate, and she understandably broke down in tears.

Now the Top 9 going into next week is as follows: Tate (age 12, contemporary with All-Star Kathryn McCormick), Jordan (age 13, contemporary with All-Star Sasha Mallory), Kida (age 13, hip-hop with All-Star Fik Shun), Jake (age 12, ballroom with All-Star Jenna Johnson), JT (age 10, contemporary with All-Star Robert Roldan), Ruby (age 12, ballroom with All-Star Paul Karmiryan), Emma (age 10, tap with All-Star and reigning “SYTYCD” winner Gabby Diaz), Tahani (age 12, hip-hop with All-Star Comfort Fedoke), and, of course, Sheaden.

Check out the results announcement in the video below. Gossip Cop will once again have “SYTYCD” coverage next week!
