“So You Think You Can Dance” eliminated another contestant and All-Star on Monday to reveal the Top 6. Get the full results below!

As Gossip Cop reported, last week’s “So You Think You Can Dance” featured the remaining eight couples vying for seven spots. Taylor Sieve and pro Robert Roldan stunned with a hip-hop routine, particularly given that both are contemporary dancers. The aspiring star gave the judges a surprising amount of attitude and heat. Meanwhile, Kiki Nyemcheck and All-Star Jenna Johnson’s pop art jazz piece was a visually impressive act that also led to high praise. In addition to the usual partner dancers, the contenders also had to perform duets with their competitors. Sieve, with Lex Ishimoto, and Nyemchek, with Koine Iwasaki, again shined.

But by the end of the broadcast, the crop had to be narrowed down. Based on the votes cast the previous week, host Cat Deeley revealed Iwasaki was in the Bottom Three, along with Dassy Lee and Kaylee Millis. Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Vanessa Hudgens and Mary Murphy then took that night’s new performances into consideration when deciding which of the trio would go home. Ultimately, they decided Lee and her partner Fik-Shun would be cut. Interestingly, Fik-Shun actually won “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” last year with his kid partner Kida.

He was now out of the running for 2017, and the journey to finding America’s next “favorite dancer” had to continue on without him. During tonight’s two-hour broadcast, the seven contestants left had to each perform three times: With their All-Star partner, in a mini group with fellow contenders and alone. Again, however, it was the votes cast after last week’s episode that determined who was in jeopardy and at risk of not making the Top 6. Deeley announced Millis, Mark Villaver and Nyemchek were the three dancers in danger.

The audience screamed at the surprising mention of Nyemchek’s name, as he had never been in this position before, while this was the second time Millis and Villaver were each among the lowest vote-getters. After deliberating, Lythgoe announced they decided to go by America’s votes, and therefore Villaver would be the one getting the boot, along with his partner Comfort Fedoke. Next week, the new Top 6 will become the Top 4 with a double elimination, and the judges won’t have a say in the outcome, as only viewers’ votes will determine who makes the finale. Still in contention are Lex Ishimoto (Gaby Diaz), Taylor Sieve (Robert Roldan), Logan Hernandez (Allison Holker), Koine Iwasaki (Marco German), Kaylee Millis (Cyrus Spencer) and Kiki Nyemchek (Jenna Johnson). Check out video of the results announcement below, as well as Villaver and Fedoke’s last performance.
