Twelve of the twenty finalists are allegedly known based on information from various sources in the dance world.
Top 20 of "So You Think You Can Dance" season 8 will not be officially announced until next week, but OMG! Dance claims to have known some of them. The partial list consists of 9 female contestants and 3 male dancers, but the site advises that it should be taken with a grain of salt.
Among the bunch, only a few who have appeared on the show. They are [SPOILER ALERT!] Melanie Moore who joined the auditions in Atlanta, and Ryan Ramirez who appeared during the San Francisco auditions. The others, meanwhile, may come from auditions in other cities which are yet to be aired.
The top 20 dancers on "So You Think You Can Dance" will be officially announced in a Thursday, June 9 episode. Before that, those who get through the auditions will enter the second round which is held in Las Vegas.
