This was the 100th episode of SYTYCD so there were a number of special performances tonight. Although I strongly disagree with both eliminations, the show was enjoyable.

The great group dance, choreographed by Mia Michaels, was performed to “One” from A Chorus Line (Original Broadway Cast). There were also a number of great encore perfomances from previous seasons.

This week, the "bottom two" girls were Kayla and Janette. The guys were Jason and Brandon (the best two male dancers of the previous evening). These four contestants danced demonstration solos, then Janette and Jason were eliminated.
