Audrey & George Take 'SYTYCD' Cut in Stride
August 22, 2012
The top ten became the final eight on tonight's So You Think You Can Dance, guest-judged by Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millipied (aka Natalie Portman's dreamy dancer husband).
All-Star dancers Nick Lazzarini, Allison Holker, Jakob Karr, Anya, Kathryn McCormick, Twitch, Brandon Bryant, Alex Wong, Jaimie Goodwin and Lauren Gottlieb paired up with SYTYCD's reigning top ten, but in the end Audrey Case (partnered with Twitch) & George Lawrence Jr. (paired with Allison Holker) were given their leave from the competition after a night full of incredible performances.
TheInsider.com was there just moments after Audrey and George were given the bad news—an experience adorable Audrey was predictably positive about.
"[SYTYCD] was the best thing I could ask for. It really has been the most amazing experience," she said, still choked up with emotion from her elimination. "Just everything about it literally; the people, dancing, everything has been perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything else that could've been better."
George agreed, adding he's sad he didn't make it to number one, but can't wait to reunite with the rest of the crew for the final episode as well as the tour, starting October 25, 2012.
"Obviously, I'm going to miss all these people and I know I'm going to see them here in a few weeks for maybe finale or touring. That's really exciting but, I mean, it's just sad. Just the whole saying goodbye thing and not getting to perform on the show anymore."
Watch the video for more from the eliminated two, plus all-stars Kathryn McCormick and Twitch dish on being mentors for tonight's episode.
So You Think You Can Dance airs Wednesday nights on FOX.
