Ready For the Top 12 Tonight?

We know that you’re totally hooked on season 5 (we are too!), but we still heart the season 4 contestants. So we dug up some old videos for you. We met up with Comfort, Kherington and Twitch on the “SYTYCD” tour. Here, they dish about everything you wanted to know about the show, touring and what’s next for these dance stars.

So who’s excited for tonight’s top 12 performances? This week is extremely important since the elimination will determine who makes the tour. We have our fingers crossed for a few people (ahem, Jeanine, Kayla, Evan, Randi, Melissa and Jason).

And for you really eager fans, we just found these spoilers Twitter:

Nigel: “Mia's piece is very strong inspired by ‘addiction.’ Wade has a fun cartoon number, very strong ballroom routines, disappointing Russian folk.”

Nappytabs: “Well another day of you guessed it....REHEARSAL! Prepping for our next routine. A group number.”

Talk to you later during the show on Twitter! —Lauren Levinson

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)

All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.

When it comes to injury-prone body parts, knees reign supreme for dancers. But a little strengthening can go a long way in preventing painful outcomes. We turned to Dirk Hartog, a physical therapist with Westside Dance Physical Therapy in NYC, for three exercises that'll support and stabilize your knees.
