"SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE" CONTESTANT JESSICA KING SUFFERS INJURY AND IS REPLACED BY RECENTLY ELIMINATED DANCER
Comfort Fedoke Rejoins Show as Top 10 Finalist
Top 10 contestant Jessica King has left SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE due to an injury. As the most recently eliminated semifinalist, Comfort Fedoke rejoins the competition immediately to compete as one of the Top 10 dancers on the two-hour performance show Wednesday, July 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
"I would like to say how sorry I am that Jessica cannot continue dancing in the competition at the advice of her doctor. Her full recovery is paramount and will only come with rest. We are fortunate that Comfort has agreed to rejoin the competition and know that under the circumstances she has Jessica's full support," said executive producer/judge Nigel Lythgoe.
Beginning next week, America's votes solely determine who stays in the competition and who goes home. Fedoke joins previously announced finalists Joshua Allen, Twitch Boss, Courtney Galiano, Chelsie Hightower, Mark Kanemura, Gev Manoukian, Kherington Payne, Katee Shean and Will Wingfield when the Top 10 are paired with new dance partners and perform as new couples on the two-hour performance show.
The following night, America's votes will be revealed, and two more dancers will go home on the live results show Thursday, July 17 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed).
Emmy-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and Dick Clark Productions, Inc. It is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Barry Adelman.
