Anyone who was secretly hoping that LMFAO would perform an elaborate hip-hop remix of “Aba Daba Honeymoon” while Debbie Reynolds danced with Rage Crew was probably a little bit disappointed during tonight’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance. Also disappointed: the four contestants who absolutely had to be eliminated tonight in the wake of last week’s controversially elimination-free episode. Six dancers were on the chopping block, and in the end, only two could be saved:  [SPOILERS FROM HERE]

Ryan was saved despite a not-so-great dance-for-your-life routine, while Ricky was specifically saved because he performed a great routine. That meant Missy, Nick, Wadi, and Iveta all went home. (Still unclear: If Iveta was helped or hurt by the decision to wear January Jones’ X-Men uniform.)

I’m working on the full episode recap now. In the meantime, what did you think about the judges’ decision? And did you enjoy when the helpful Gatorade health inspector taught us all a valuable lesson about sweating?
