Episode Summary

The top 20 dancers are paired together for the first time and perform for America and the judges. However, because of the baseball playoff, there will be no separate elimination show. Instead, in this episode, the judges will choose the bottom two girls and guys. Those four dancers will be given an opportunity to perform a solo and then the judges will cut one guy and one girl from the competition.moreless
