DEBBIE ALLEN WILL GUEST-JUDGE AS TOP 8 COUPLES COMPETE ON THE NEXT PERFORMANCE SHOW WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, ON FOX

Fergie and Ludacris to Perform On the Live Results Show Thursday, June 28

The summer hit SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE kicked into high gear this week, with performances by the Top 18 finalists on Wednesday and a special performance last night by Reggaeton star Daddy Yankee.

The three couples who received the fewest votes after Wednesday's performance show were: Jessi Peralta and Pasha Kovalev; Shauna Noland and Jimmy Arguello; and Faina Savich and Cedric Gardner. After each of the six dancers performed a solo routine, the judges eliminated Savich and Arguello from the competition, ending their quest to become America's favorite dancer. Savich, 21, is a Latin Ballroom dancer from Brooklyn, NY, and Arguello, 21, is a Contemporary Lyrical dancer from Miami, FL. Daddy Yankee performed his hit single "Impacto."

Next week, the excitement builds on television's hottest show when renowned choreographer Debbie Allen serves as a guest judge and the remaining 16 finalists (Kameron Bink, Cedric Gardner, Anya Garnis, Jaimie Goodwin, Lauren Gottlieb, Neil Haskell, Sabra Johnson, Hok Konishi, Pasha Kovalev, Shauna Noland, Jessi Peralta, Dominic Sandoval, Lacey Schwimmer, Jes�s Solorio, Sara Von Gillern and Danny Tidwell) compete as couples once again on a special two-hour performance show Wednesday, June 27 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The following night, the judges will send two more dancers home, and Fergie and Ludacris will perform "Glamorous" on the live results show Thursday, June 28 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).

The third hit season of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE is dominating the competition. The series boasts the highest-rated Adults 18-49 telecast for a summer series so far this year. SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE-WED is No. 1 in its time period among Adults 18-49, Total Viewers, Adults 18-34, Teens and all key demos, while SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE-THU ranks No. 1 in its time period among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34, Teens, Total Viewers and all female demos.

Debbie Allen is an internationally recognized director/choreographer who holds the distinction of having choreographed the Academy Awards a record 10 times, including six in consecutive years. She has directed and choreographed for such artists as Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Gwen Verdon, Lena Horne and Sammy Davis Jr.

Allen won a Golden Globe for her role as "Lydia Grant" on the hit series "Fame" and is a three-time Emmy Award winner for her choreography for "Fame" and "The Motown 25th Anniversary Special." An Artist in Residence at the Kennedy Center, she has created six original musicals with James Ingram, Arturo Sandoval and Diane Louie.

Allen's television credits include "Family Ties," "Quantum Leap," "The Twilight Zone," "A Different World," "The Jaime Foxx Show," "The Parkers," "That's So Raven," "All of Us," "Girlfriends" and "Everybody Hates Chris" as well as the television movie "The Old Settler," in which she co-starred with her sister, Phylicia Rashad. Recently, Allen directed "Life Is Not a Fairytale: The Fantasia Barrino Story." Allen produced the epic film "Amistad" in 1996 and appeared in "Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling," "Ragtime" and "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh," which she also choreographed. She made her Broadway debut in the chorus of "Purlie," created the role of "Beneatha" in the musical "Raisin" and appeared in the 1979 revival of "West Side Story," for which she received the Drama Desk Award as well as her first Tony Award nomination. Allen's second Tony nod came in 1986 for her performance in the title role in "Sweet Charity." In 1988 she choreographed the new musical "Carrie" with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Allen has represented the U.S. as a Culture Connect Ambassador in visits to Brazil, China, Italy and India. In 2001, she opened the Debbie Allen Dance Academy in Los Angeles, offering a comprehensive curriculum in the major dance techniques for boys and girls ages 4 to 18. She is a member of the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, a board member of the American Film Institute and an Executive Committee member at the UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television.

Fergie joined The Black Eyed Peas in 2002, and was on hand when their first disc together, "Elephunk," went triple-platinum, thrusting the group into the spotlight. The mega-single "Let's Get It Started" earned The Peas their first Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a duo or group. Two years later, the follow-up "Monkey Business" yielded five Top-40 hits, including "Don't Phunk With My Heart" and "My Humps," and has sold over 4 million copies. On her solo debut "The Dutchess," Fergie's first single, "London Bridge," made history as it bulleted its way up the Billboard Hot 100 chart, reaching the No. 1 spot in three short weeks, the second-highest jump ever recorded by Billboard. The album has sold 2 million copies and has produced back-to-back No. 1 singles. Fergie's first tastes of stardom came as a child voicing the characters of "Sally" and "Lucy" in the animated "Charlie Brown" specials, as a cast member of Kids Incorporated during her teen years, and as a member of the pop trio Wild Orchid.

Ludacris' album "Release Therapy" went platinum and his single "Money Maker" spent over a month at No. 1 on the Billboard Pop and Hip-Hop/R&B charts. His single "Runaway Love," featuring Mary J. Blige, is quickly moving up the charts. Ludacris' mega-selling streak began with his debut, 2000's triple-platinum "Back For the First Time" ("What's Your Fantasy" and Southern Hospitality"), followed by 2001's triple-platinum "Word of Mouf," 2003's double-platinum "Chicken-N-Beer" and 2004's double-platinum "The Red-Light District." Ludacris received critical acclaim for his acting in the Oscar-winning film "Crash" and the Oscar-nominated "Hustle & Flow."

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions. It is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Allen Shapiro.
