After America cast a whopping 10 million votes onÂ Wednesday night, contemporary dancerÂ AdeChike Torbert was eliminated last night onÂ So You Think You Can Dance, leavingÂ Kent,Â Robert,Â andÂ Lauren to duke it out in next week’s season finale. Although the judges had absolutely no say in the elimination this week,Â Mia Michaels thinks America got it right. Keep reading to hear what AdeChike thinks about making the top four and what the rest of the judges think about his elimination…
It was certainly a close race to determine the top three dancers on this season ofÂ So You Think You Can Dance. After 10 million votes were received onÂ Wednesday night, the difference between the top four dancers was only a few percent. Sadly, contemporary dancerÂ AdeChike Torbert wasÂ eliminated after a rough night on Wednesday where he received harsh criticism for his Afro-jazz and contemporary routines.
The news shocked resident judgeÂ Mia Michaels, but she thinks it was the best decision.Â â€œI was surprised because his voting has been high. America loves him,” Mia Michaels said.Â Â â€œBut I think America got it right.â€ Ultimately though, Mia Michaels has confidence that AdeChike Torbert will go on to do great things.Â Â â€œHeâ€™s a warrior, and his tenacity has gotten him really far,â€ she said. â€œAnd I think because he is a warrior, heâ€™ll be great in anything he chooses to do.â€
Mia’s fellow judge,Â Adam Shankman, agreed with the way America voted as well.Â Â â€œI think it went the right way,â€ he said.Â â€œHe doesnâ€™t lose himself in the number â€¦ with him I just feel tension.â€
For AdeChike himself, the elimination wasn’t too much of a shock.Â â€œIâ€™m not surprised,â€ he told People magazine. “This journey has shaped who I am right now.â€ Although he had a difficult night on Wednesday, AdeChike is thrilled that he had the chance to work with his idol, choreographer/dancer Desmond Richardson. â€œIâ€™m glad I got to leave the show doing a number that meant a lot to me,â€ AdeChike said. â€œTo work with him was a dream come true and an absolute blessing.â€
