Lady GaGa followed up her tearful appearance on the "So You Think You Can Dance" judge panel on July 27 with a solid performance which broadcast on the next day. The Mother Monster sang two singles for the Thursday episode.
GaGa kicked off her set with uptempo song "The Edge of Glory" and continued it with a slower track "You and I". Her performance aired just before judge Nigel Lythgoe took the stage and announced who was booted from the competition.
Melanie, who received support from GaGa the day before, was luckily safe. Nigel sent home Jordan from the girl group, and Jess from the boy camp. Before the show came to an end, he told the audience, "The dancers are going on into the tour and we'll see them there."
