Tonight, Mark Kanemura, 24, a Contemporary dancer from Honolulu, HI and Chelsie Hightower, 18, a Latin dancer from Orem, UT, were eliminated from the competition.
With only the two-night, four-hour season finale remaining, the Top 4 finalists are one step closer to becoming America's Favorite Dancer. The remaining finalists will compete on part one of the season finale Wednesday, Aug. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

In addition to naming the Season Four winner, the season finale of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will feature encores of the best routines of the season and a reunion of fan-favorite dancers from the first four seasons. Teen pop sensations Jonas Brothers will perform "Burnin' Up" from their new album "A Little Bit Longer" and the cast of "CRISS ANGEL Believe," for the first time exclusively on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, will perform a dance number entitled "Homage to the Rabbits."
The Top 4 finalists had this to say about what it would mean to win Season Four of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE:
Joshua Allen � "OMG! That would be amazing because I would be the first Hip-Hop dancer to win the show. I could move out to LA and live my dream as a dancer/singer. I also want to make my family happy because they know I can do it and they believe in me."
Twitch Boss � "I feel winning the show would provide an excellent base to explore life's options. Who would have ever thought that a guy from Montgomery, AL could be named America's Favorite Dancer? It means no matter how far-fetched something may sound, if you want it badly enough it could happen."
Courtney Galiano � "I don't think I would believe it! To win the show would be a dream come true. We are all hungry for it; but we are all winners. We have grown, not just as dancers but as people too."
Katee Shean � "Winning the show would be the most unreal and amazing feat. Just being able to say I was part of Season Four and amongst so many amazing dancers and choreographers is a prize in itself. All of the memories I have made makes it feel like I have already won something."
Mystifier Criss Angel has teamed up with Cirque du Soleil for "CRISS ANGEL Believe," a haunting journey inside his mind that showcases stunning illusions and a dynamic troupe of dancers. During the show, choreographer Wade Robson mixes a multitude of styles into a high-energy visual feast punctuated by moments of grace and sensuality. "Believe" is set to open Sept. 12 at Luxor in Las Vegas.
