SYTYCD 3, Top 16: Results

Surprising voting results lead to the elimination of two talented dancers on So You Think You Can Dance.

The Top 16 Results Show started with the group dancing to "The Lioness Hunt" from the musical The Lion King, choreographed by TyceDiOrio.

Lauren & Neil and Lacey & Kameron were the first two couples brought onto the stage to learn their fates. Lacey & Kameron were safe, making Lauren & Neil the first pair in the Bottom 3.

The next three couples up were Jamie & Hok, Sabra & Dominic, and Sara & Jesus. Jamie & Hok were safe, as were Sabra & Dominic, putting Sara & Jesus in the Bottom.

Before the next couple in the Bottom 3 was revealed, host Cat Deeley announced that Jessi had received medical clearance to perform. She’d still have to dance a solo tonight, but as a treat, Jessi & Pasha danced the Cha Cha they’d rehearsed before her collapse. It was fantastic.

When asked about her condition, Jessi explained that she’d gotten dehydrated, which led to an abnormal EKG. But she said Pasha stayed by her side in the hospital, and she called him "Prince Charming" and her "wannabe boyfriend."

Then Cat revealed that Pasha was safe from the Bottom Three.

Finally, it was down to Shauna & Cedric and Anya & Danny for the final spot in the Bottom 3. Anya & Danny received that dubious distinction, to the obvious displeasure of the judges who we’re looking for a chance to get rid of Cedric. Nigel said, "Five million people voted, and five million people got it wrong."

Then it was time for the solos:
Lauren — Kevin Federline, "Popozao"
Neil — Ben Jelen, "Come On"
Sara — Queen Latifah, "Ladies First"
Jesus — The Romantics, "What I Like About You"
Jessi — Omarion, "Ice Box"
Danny — Elliott Yamin, "A Song For You"
Anya — Eva Cassidy, "Fields of Gold"

Before the judges announced who would be going home, Fergie performed "Glamorous," with a little help from Ludacris.

The judges brought the girls out first, and Nigel told them that none of their performances were very good. Without any other buildup, Nigel told Jessi to go. She was obviously shocked, as was Cat. Jessi teared up when she said she’d miss Pasha.

Nigel then told the guys that the judges didn’t want to decide which one of them to send home. But he said that Jesus was slightly less outstanding than the other two guys during his solo, and that he’d be going home. Jesus said he’d miss his buddies, Hok and Dominic, and then started to cry when talking about Sara.
