So You Think You Can Dance
He was paired up with ballroom dancer Faina Savich. On the premiere of the show they danced a Shane Sparks hip hop routine to Get It Shawty by Lloyd. They placed in the bottom three and had to dance a solo routine. Cedric was able to convince the judges that he should stay based on his solo dance. For their second dance, they performed a foxtrot routine choreographed by Hunter Johnson. They placed in the bottom three again. Cedric was able to convince the judges that he should stay based on his solo dance but the judges patience with him was beginning to wane. After his partner Faina Savich was eliminated, Cedric was paired with contemporary dancer Shauna Noland. For their 3rd dance, the couple danced contemporary choreographed by Mia Michaels. The judges were very disappointed in his performance, but the American public did not place him in the bottom three this time. On the July 12, 2007 show the couple danced a Mambo routine to "Flauta Y Timbal" by Tito Puente. Cedric and Shauna placed in the bottom three yet again. This time the judges dismissed Cedric and his partner.
