'So You Think You Can Dance' determines Top 4 as Kaylee Millis and Logan Hernandez are sent packing

So You Think You Can Dance eliminated two contestants, Kaylee Millis and Logan Hernandez, and determined the fourteenth season's Top 4 dancers during Monday night's broadcast on Fox.
Kaylee and her All-Star partner Cyrus Spencer and Logan and his All-Star partner Allison Holker were ousted from So You Think You Can Dance during a special double-elimination episode in which Koine Iwasaki -- who is paired with All-Star Marko Germar -- was also in jeopardy.
Based on home viewer votes following last week's performance show, Kaylee, Logan and Koine were declared the bottom-three dancers.
While So You Think You Can Dance judges Nigel Lythgoe, Vanessa Hudgens and Mary Murphy had the power to deliberate and send a contestant home from the bottom three in recent weeks, the results were left entirely in America's hands this week.
"There's no question two of you are going to be disappointed... Travis Wall got turned down the first time he auditioned for this show, so believe in yourselves," Nigel told the bottom-three dancers, referencing how Travis is now an Emmy-winning choreographer.
When So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley read the results of the vote aloud, Koine was saved. Kaylee and Logan therefore received the fewest number of home viewer votes after dancing their hearts out on the stage last week.
"Dance means a lot of hard work, a lot of discipline, and it also means a lot of self expression," Kaylee said in her final words. "[I'm going to remember] every moment I got to share the stage with [Cyrus]."
"To even be here right now is crazy and I'm really proud of myself," Logan said, adding that the SYTYCD cast became his family and Allison managed to inspire him every single day.
During Monday night's show, each of the Top 6 contestants performed three times -- once with his or her All-Star partner in a dance style picked at random, a solo in each dancer's preferred style, and then a duet with another contestant.
Kaylee and Cyrus performed a hip-hop routine choreographed by Phillip Chbeeb before Kaylee also took the stage with fellow contestant Kiki Nyemchek, who is paired with All-Star Jenna Johnson this season, for a Bollywood routine.
Logan first took the stage with Allison, and the pair delivered a contemporary routine choreographed by Dee Caspary. Logan later danced a jazz number with his fellow contestant Taylor Sieve, who is partnered with All-Star Robert Roldan this season.
And Koine initially performed a contemporary routine with Marko that was choreographed by Mandy Korpinen and Elizabeth Petrin. Koine then took the stage with Lex Ishimoto -- who is paired with All-Star Gaby Diaz -- for a fun disco routine.
The votes from Monday night, September 11, and the votes cast following next week's performance show will be combined to determine So You Think You Can Dance's Season 14 winner.
