Finalists Kourtni Lind and Matt Dorame were eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. Lind, 18, is a Jazz/Contemporary dancer from Forest Lake, MN, and Dorame, 22, is a Contemporary dancer from Glendale, AZ.
The three couples who received the fewest votes after Wednesday's performance show were: Kourtni Lind and Matt Dorame; Courtney Galiano and Gev Manoukian; and Comfort Fedoke and Thayne Jasperson. After each of the six finalists "danced for their lives," the judges eliminated Lind and Dorame from the competition.

The following night, Katy Perry will perform her hit single, "I Kissed a Girl"; Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater members Clifton Brown, Jamar Roberts and Kirven J. Boyd will entertain the audience with an excerpt of Ailey�s signature masterpiece "Revelations"; and the judges will send two more dancers home on the live results show Thursday, July 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
