Snow Urbin, Melody Lacayanga, Allan Frias and Ryan Conferido are the four contestants up for elimination on the Wednesday, September 7, 2005 episode of So You Think You Can Dance. Nigel Lythgoe praises both female dancers saying Snow is “possibly the best performer on the show” and Melody is” possibly the best technical dancer on the show”. Nigel adds “the only loser tonight is this show” because one of them will be going home.
The judges have a little more decisive option when it comes to the male dancers. Mary Murphy feels that Allan did not crossover as well as some of the other dancers in the show. Allan Frias was a long shot coming into the competition. He was one of the few heavy dancers to make it through the early rounds, and the only heavy dancer to make it to the sixteen finalists. Allan Frias received several compliments from the judges in regards to his personality, but he often struggled learning new dance styles.
Lauren Sanchez informs Snow that she will be going home on the girls’ side, and she informs Allan that he will be going home on the boys’ side. Lauren also tells Melody that she received the highest vote total and can select who she does not want as her partner. Melody selects Jamile McGee as the partner she doesn’t want to dance, giving the reason that he is too tall of a partner for her.
Each dance team gets two performances. The dance teams are Melissa & Artem, Kamilah & Nick, Melody & Ryan, Jamile & Destiny, and Blake & Ashle. After both performances, the judges select Melody & Ryan and Jamile & Destiny as the bottom two couples. The crowd is shocked by Jamile & Destiny’s nomination because their second performance was probably the best performance of the show.
