billybell 290 'So You Think You Can Dance': Brandon Dumlao replaces Billy BellLast week the Top 20 finalists were announced on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” and this week one of them is being replaced.

Billy Bell, 19, has dropped out of the show due to an unspecified illness. In his place, 21-year-old Hip Hop dancer Brandon Dumlao will join the Top 20 and will compete Tuesday (Oct. 27) in the season’s first performance show.

“We are disappointed that Billy cannot continue dancing in the competition on the advice of his doctor and wish him a speedy recovery,” executive producer/judge Nigel Lythgoe says. “However, we are fortunate that Brandon Dumlao has agreed to return.”

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
