"SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE" REVEALS TOP 20 FINALISTS

FINALISTS COMPETE LIVE FOR FIRST TIME WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, ON FOX

Tonight, after thousands of auditions from some of the best dancers in the nation, the judges of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE announced the Top 20 finalists who will compete to be named America's Favorite Male and Female Dancer. This season's Top 20 finalists are: Girls - Alexa Anderson, Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson, Audrey Case, Janaya French, Eliana Girard, Amber Jackson, Janelle Issis, Amelia Lowe and Tiffany Maher; and Boys - Daniel Baker, Nick Bloxsom-Carter, Cole Horibe, Matthew Kazmierczak, Dareian Kujawa, George Lawrence II, Brandon Mitchell, Cyrus Spencer, Will Thomas and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp.

In two weeks, on Wednesday, July 11 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 20 finalists will dance for the judges and America on this season's first two-hour live performance show. The Top 20 will be paired into 10 couples and work with world-renowned choreographers to compose a dance routine representing their assigned genre. After the performances, viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite dancers via phone, text and online. Please visit www.fox.com/dance for additional voting information.

Then, the following week on Wednesday, July 18 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on the first performance and results show, the 10 couples will perform again, but in this week's assigned genre. America's votes from the previous week will also be revealed and at the end of the show, the six finalists comprising the bottom three guys and bottom three girls will be revealed and may be given a chance to perform solo routines. The judges will then decide which dancers stay and which two will be eliminated. If couples are split apart, the dancers who remain will form new couples.
