After a two-week Olympics hiatus, four contestants were eliminated tonight (Aug. 15) on “So You Think You Can Dance,” in which the dancers honored Emmy-winning choreographer and judge Mia Michaels by performing her iconic routines.
Of the six dancers who received the fewest votes, Matthew Kazmierczak, Dareian Kujawa, Janelle Issis and Amelia Lowe were sent home.
Lindsay Arnold and George Lawrence II were spared by Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judges Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt (the Ballet Boyz).
The Top 10 finalists, including Arnold and Lawrence, will be paired next week with ‘SYTCD’ All-Star partners.
Natalie Portman‘s new husband, “Black Swan” choreographer Benjamin Millepied, will be a guest judge on the Aug. 22 two-hour show.
