Get to know the 20 finalists of 'So You Think You Can Dance' season 5 and their dance styles.
FOX has released the official music video for the Top 20 of "So You Think You Can Dance". Using plain white background, the video combines different styles such as jazz, hip-hop, contemporary and ballet.
On Thursday, June 11, the dancing show has sent home the first two contestants and kept 18 people in competition. Paris Torres and Tony Bellissimo failed to impress both the audience and the judges that their Hip-Hop piece was placed in the bottom three before then became the determining factor of their elimination.
Speaking of his exit, Tony told TV Guide that "it was a great piece that was not executed the right way." His only regret of not staying longer is his fear of not getting respect. "I wanted to stay (a few) more weeks to prove that I was good," he said.
Meanwhile, Paris agreed with the judge that it was a good but not a great performance. "...we over-rehearsed ourselves, to where it wasn't that original hitting it, it was watered-down. It was just becoming steps to us," she said.
Both Tony and Paris also spared a comment regarding the rumor of Katie Holmes making a guest appearance on the show. While Tony admitted, "I didn't know Katie Holmes could dance or sing. I don't know if Tom Cruise is coming, too," Paris said it would "suck" if it's true since she is no longer on the show.
The remaining contestants will resume the dancing on Wednesday, June 17.
