Top 8 Perform
So You Think You Can Dance Season 7 Episode 12 (07/07/10)
A rundown of the night's performances, with Alex Wong automatically in the bottom three after hurting his Achilles and being unable to go (his status remains unclear):
With the All-Stars
Lauren Froderman with Pasha Kovalev (cha cha): Hot stuff! Lauren definitely embraced her feminine side.
Jose Ruiz with Lauren Gottlieb (contemporary): Jose showed a lot of strength and control, owning it.
Kent Boyd with Comfort Fedoke (hip-hop): Kent really sold this one, rather than overacting like a clown.
AdeChike Torbert with Courtney Galiano (jazz): Too much personality and "mediocre" technical effort.
Billy Bell with Katee Shean (Broadway): This "Cats" number was cheesy, but still pretty terrific.
Ashley Galvan with Dominic Sandoval (hip-hop): Ashley thrived while very much out of her element.
Robert Roldan with Kathryn McCormick (jazz): Not the best, but Robert did earn a good amount of praise.
With Each Other
AdeChike Torbert (Bollywood): Dancing with a ringer in place of Alex, AdeChike held his own.
Kent Boyd and Lauren Froderman (contemporary): Simply gorgeous. Best of the night.
Robert Roldan and Ashley Galvan (quick-step): Forget the dancers, the dance itself needs to go.
Jose Ruiz and Billy Bell (African jazz): Billy outclassed Jose, sharper and more controlled.
