'So You Think You Can Dance' cuts Hayley Erbert and Paul Karmiryan heading into Top 4 finale
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/28/2013
So You Think You Can Dance eliminated two more finalists and determined the tenth season's Top 4 finale contestants during Tuesday night's live show on Fox.
Hayley Erbert, an 18-year-old contemporary dancer from Topeka, KS, and Paul Karmiryan, a 21-year-old Latin ballroom dancer from Glendale, CA, were eliminated from the competition based on home viewer votes cast for the Top 6 finalists immediately following last Tuesday night's show.
Hayley and Paul's ouster advanced Jasmine Harper, a 20-year-old contemporary dancer from Lawrenceville, GA; Amy Yakima, a 19-year-old jazz dancer from Northville, MI; "Fik-Shun," an 18-year-old hip-hop dancer from Las Vegas, NV; and Aaron Turner, a 25-year-old tap dancer from Las Vegas, NV, into next week's finale episode.
The night's rounds of competition allowed each Top 6 dancer to perform a solo, dance a routine with a fellow contestant and also take the stage with a So You Think You Can Dance all-star for the show's judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy as well as guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Paul danced a jazz routine with all-star Kathryn McCormick, a contemporary number with Haley and his Latin ballroom solo.
In addition to her dance with Paul, Haley danced a hip-hop routine with all-star Joshua Allen and her contemporary solo.
The male and female winner of next week's finale will each receive $100,000, a cover appearance on Dance Spirit magazine and the title of "America's Favorite Dancer."
