SYTYCD 3, Top 12: Results

Tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance results show started with a cute Jean-Marc Genereux-choreographed routine to "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," with the dancers decked out in Navy uniforms.

Then it was time to find out which couples would be dancing for their lives. The Bottom Three couples were Anya & Danny, Jamie & Hok, and Lauren & Neil.

The announcement of the Bottom Three couples was followed by a special tap performance by Jason Samuel Smith. The performance was very cool, and at times he looked like his upper body was being supported by wires to allow his feet to fly more easily.

Solos:
Anya — Ike & Tina Turner, "Proud Mary"
Danny — Brian McKnight, "Never Felt This Way"
Jamie — Mindy Smith, "One Moment More"
Hok — Jamiroquai, "Black Devil Car"
Lauren — Christina Aguilera, "Walk Away"
Neil — Maroon 5, "Harder to Breathe"

While the judges deliberated, Enrique Iglesias performed "Somebody’s Me."

The judges weren’t unanimous in their decision as to which girl should go, but they all felt that Jamie deserved to remain despite an unimpressive solo. They felt that, until tonight, Lauren hadn’t reached her potential. But her performance tonight impressed two of the judges enough that they asked Lauren to remain, meaning that Anya had to go.

Regarding which boy to eliminate, the judges were unanimous. Nigel said that the judges felt Hok hadn’t grown as much as the other breakdancers in the competition, Dominic and Sara, and the show’s eventual winner needed to have a diverse array of talents. Neil and Danny lived to dance another day, and Hok was cut adrift.
