So You Think You Can Dance Announces First Eliminations

Filed under : Entertainment

It’s official – the very first eliminations on Mzansi’s most scintillating dance show took place tonight (Monday 30th September) and unfortunately Lucy and Obed have been voted off the show.  No doubt their supporters will be sad to hear this news, but there is no shortage of talent in the 14 contestants that are left on So You Think You Can Dance.  What viewers can look forward to is even more marvellous moves, a touch more pace and a bigger dose of blood, sweat and tears. Now the pressure is really on – two competitors are out and it is all to dance for in the season’s coming weeks.  


With the sensational Sinazo Yolwa hosting, this year’s instalment of the wildly popular international-format show has been more successful than ever, and it was a tough call announcing the first two contestants to leave the show. For judges Harold Van Buuren, Themba Nofomele and Lorna Lukhele, this week’s announcement means they are a step closer to deciding who will walk off with the R250 00.00 cash prize, but with an abundance of talent, they know that it is not going to be an easy task.  


Just 14 young hopefuls are left and they will continue performing live, competing both in pairs and as individuals.  As the numbers dwindle, the challenge and pressure also builds for Mzansi’s top choreographers who feel the intensity growing as contestants contemplate the fact that they might be the next to be eliminated!  This is great for the viewer as it only means more incredible performances to look forward to in all genres in the coming weeks.  


The show is live on SABC1 Mzansi Fo Sho on Saturday at 18:30, with the Results Show broadcast every Monday at 19:00.  From here on out, the voting results will see 2 dancers (1 female and 1 male) being eliminated very week, leaving the top 4 who will compete in pairs as well as individually, until the winner is eventually announced.  If you want your favourites to be a part of the Top 4, don’t forget to vote!  

So good luck to the Top 14, who are from all over South Africa, and skilled in many different dance styles:
