You’re only as strong as your weakest samba roll — or so the old saying goes (kinda sorta).
And that’s why So You Think You Can Dance fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the show’s Season 11 Top 20 pairings.
After last week’s “Meet the Top 20″ telecast — in which every contestant was paired up with someone from the same style, and then given a routine in their own genre — tonight’s telecast (8/7c on Fox) will push the dancers outside their comfort zones.
So without further ado, the Season 11 pairings — which, barring the elimination of a partner, will stick until the All-Star portion of the competition kicks off — are as follows:
Brooklyn Fullmer and Casey Askew
Malene Ostergaard and Stanley Glover
Jacque LeWarne and Zack Everhart
Bridget Whitman and Emilio Dosal
Jourdan Epstein and Marcquet Hill
Valerie Rockey and Ricky Ubeda
Carly Blaney and Serge Onik
Emily James and Teddy Coffey
Jessica Richens and Nick Garcia
Tanisha Belnap and Rudy Abreu
