Jessica King, one of So You Think You Can Dance’s final 10 contestants, has dropped out of the competition due to injury. Nigel Lythgoe told reporters at the FOX Television Critics Association event in Los Angeles the news earlier today.
Lythgoe says Comfort Fedoke, who was eliminated on the results show July 10, will rejoin the cast.
“I would like to say how sorry I am that Jessica cannot continue dancing in the competition at the advice of her doctor,” Lythgoe said in a statement released by FOX. “Her full recovery is paramount and will only come with rest.”
Comfort Fedoke, right, will get another chance to prove that she can dance.
