'So You Think You Can Dance' Season 11 Top 20 results: Which dancers were eliminated first?
The judges announced the Bottom 6 dancers according to votes right at the beginning of the program. At that point, Malene and Nick were in the company of fellow ballroom dancers Brooklyn Fullmer and Serge Onik, as well as ballerina Jourdan Epstein and contemporary dancer Casey Askew. All of the bottom-six then performed with their new partners and eventually danced for their lives.
Taking the main performances and the solos together, judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Misty Copeland eventually decided that Malene and Nick were the ones to go.
The remaining 18 dancers will take to the stage again Wednesday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
