“So You Think It Can Dance” finally revealed its Top 10 for season 14 on Monday! Get the full results below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, “So You Think You Can Dance” embraced a back-to-basics formula for 2017. After one season of dividing contestants into stage versus street teams and one season focused on “the next generation,” the FOX dance competition has returned to a more normal format. All dancers are between the ages of 18 and 30, and they are not separated by style or on one of two teams. Rather, it was decided that each of this year’s finalists would be paired up with one of 10 All-Stars, winners and beloved alumni from years past.

But it was a long journey to get to that point. Auditions were held in Los Angeles and New York with head judge Nigel Lythgoe, returning panelist Mary Murphy, and new member Vanessa Hudgens. Together the trio decided which of the hundreds of dancers at the try-outs deserved to go to the Dance Academy in Los Angeles, the second phase of the competition. Approximately 100 contestants were invited to those call-backs, where they had to perform in front of the All-Stars in a series of challenges.

As the pros eliminated contenders who just didn’t measure up, they also built teams of four people they possibly wanted to take to the live shows as their finalists. Of course, once those teams of four were built, they had to be narrowed down. Each All-Star could only have one contestant as a partner for the live shows. Or, in other words, each of the Top 10 had to be paired up with one All-Star. As Gossip Cop reported, Academy Week came to an end last week with the Top 20 officially unveiled.

That meant the All-Stars each had two people left on their teams whom they had to choose between for the live shows. And unlike in past years, the final picks remained a mystery until the first live episode of the season tonight. Over the course of two hours, the Top 10 was not only revealed, but also had to perform live for the first time with their partners in hopes of winning America’s vote to make it into the Top 9. They’d learn their fate next week, after performing for a second time, even though only tonight’s vote from viewers will determine the outcome.

So, just who is in the Top 10? Fik-Shun picked Dassy Lee over Kyle Bennett Jr., while Allison Holker chose Logan Hernandez over Zachary Downer. Jenna Johnson selected Kiki Nyemchek instead of Kevin “Konkrete” Davis. Cyrus Spencer decided to move forward with Kaylee Millis and not Havoc. Meanwhile, Gabby Diaz put Lex Ishimoto through over Evan DeBenedetto, and Comfort Fedoke favored Mark Villaver over Deja Williams.

To round out the Top 10, Marko German went with Koine Iwasaki and sent home Sofia Ghavami. Paul Kamiryan named Sydney Tormey as his partner, eliminating Kristina Androsenko. Robert Rolan paired with Taylor Sieve, giving Jonathan Wade the boot. And lastly, Jasmine Harper welcomed Robert Green to the live shows and said goodbye to Howard Johnson. Among the judges’ favorites were Ishimoto and Diaz’s tap performance, Tormey and Kamiryan’s ballroom routine, and Sieve and Roldan’s emotional contemporary dance.

Next week, the Top 10 will all perform again. But one pair will be eliminated at the end of the show, based on tonight’s votes. Gossip Cop, of course, will have the results and highlights.
