It was down to the final 18 Tuesday on "So You Think You Can Dance- as Mia Michaels joined judges Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. She promised that this season is going to be "benoodles", which she explained meant "insane". She said there are a few dancers in the final that she won't be sad to see leave, but the majority are fantastic.
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.
