There was a surprise on the bottom two line-up although eventually none of the judges' favorites went home.
"So You Think You Can Dance" reached a milestone on Thursday, July 23 with the 100th episode celebration. Katie Holmes appeared as a special guest, paying tribute to Judy Garland by singing and performing "Get Happy". But on top of all the festivity, two dancers have to end their journey.
The special episode started with a Broadway number of "One" from "A Chorus Line". The show then cut the chase and announced which dancers were in the bottom two. In the women side, Janette Manrara was in the bottom two along with judges favorite Kayla Radomski. In the men side, Jason Glover was in the bottom two along with another favorite, Brandon Bryant.
Before the deliberation of who go home, Holmes gave the highly-anticipated performance. Nigel Lythgoe, whose birthday happened to be on that night, told the viewers that Garland's son Joey Luft was among the audience.
The results came out and none of the favorites went home, meaning Janette and Jason left the competition. Janette expressed her gratitude of the experience, saying she realized how much she loves dancing. Jason said it was a great journey and thanked everyone.
