First eliminations of SYTYCD season 8
Last week, there was a double elimination, since the judges elected not to eliminate anyone the week before that. Last week, four dancers got the first boot. They are Wadi Jones, a 24-year-old break dancer from Ossining, New York; Nick Young, a 19-year-old tap dancer from Franklin, Wisconsin; Iveta Lukosiute, a 30-year-old ballroom dancer from Klaipeda, Lithuania; and Missy Morelli, a 20-year-old jazz dancer from Arvada, Colorado. Of the three lowest vote-getting couples, the judges spared Ricky Jaime and Ryan Ramirez, who were the first couple to perform that performance night. My favorite couple Chris Koehl and Ashley Rich were the last couple to perform that night, and I am glad they were not in the bottom three.
