This week, Cat introduced us to Nigel Lythgoe, Cicley and Olisa, and Jean-Marc Genereux as our judges.
This week, pairs were randomly drawn. Each pair danced twice and each dancer performed a solo.
Ivan and Martha performed a hip-hop routine, then Donyelle performed her solo. Travis and Heidi danced the Paso Doble, Ryan and Allison danced a contemporary routine, and the next batch of solos included Martha and Ivan. Next, Dmitry and Donyelle danced the Lindy Hop, Benji and Natalie performed a jazz routine, and Heidi's solo came next. Ivan and Martha danced a smooth waltz and then Travis performed his solo. Ryan and Allison danced Broadway and Natalie performed her solo with Benji following-up. Donyelle and Dmitry performed a samba, Travis and Heidi danced a contemporary piece, and Allison performed a solo. Next, Benji and Natalie danced hip hop and Ryan's solo finished the night.
Afterwards, voting was opened up to the audience.
Season 2 Episode 16 of So You Think You Can Dance resulted in a 0.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Contestants perform a particular style of dance each week with a partner. The audience votes on their favorite couple leaving the 3 couples with the least votes up for elimination. After each dancer performs a solo of their choice for the judges, one male and one female contestant are up for elimination.
