HOT FROM FOX�

SARA VON GILLERN AND DOMINIC SANDOVAL ARE ELIMINATED ON "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE"

DEBBIE ALLEN RETURNS TO GUEST-JUDGE AS THE TOP 6 DANCERS COMPETE WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, ON FOX

NEXT RESULTS REVEALED MONDAY, AUGUST 13

The summer hit SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE continued its powerhouse ways this week, with the Top 8 finalists each performing two couples routines on Wednesday and a solo dance last night. In addition, last night's musical guest, OneRepublic, performed their hit song "Apologize." With only two weeks remaining, the competition is heating up as the contestants vie for the title of "America's Favorite Dancer" and the $250,000 cash prize.

The two girls who received the fewest votes after Wednesday's performance show were Lauren Gottlieb and Sara Von Gillern; the two guys with the fewest votes were Neil Haskell and Dominic Sandoval. Host Cat Deeley announced that Von Gillern and Sandoval were eliminated from the competition based on total votes received, ending their quest to become America's Favorite Dancer. Von Gillern, 23, is a Hip-Hop/B-girl dancer from Ft. Collins, CO; and Sandoval, 21, is a Hip-Hop/B-boy dancer from Roseville, CA.

Next week, the remaining six finalists (Lauren Gottlieb, Neil Haskell, Sabra Johnson, Pasha Kovalev, Lacey Schwimmer and Danny Tidwell) compete again on the penultimate performance show Wednesday, Aug. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, and Debbie Allen will return as a guest judge. The voting outcome will be revealed on the next results show, airing on a special day and time: Monday, Aug. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Then, on the two-hour final performance show Wednesday, Aug. 15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the Top 4 dancers will battle it out for America's vote. The following night, America's Favorite Dancer will be crowned on the live season finale Thursday, Aug. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
