In case you missed last night’s show, we’re here to tell you that Season 6 of “So You Think You Can Dance” is off to a rockin’ start! After a grueling, emotional Vegas week, it was finally time to announce the top 20, and the judges definitely had a few surprises up their sleeves. The best part?

Who we’re excited about:

Billy Bell. This boy is crazy phenomenal! Billy is currently a student at The Juilliard School in NYC. Lucky for us, they’ve decided to give him some time off to do the show.

Jakob Karr. Wow, is all we can say. We first met Jakob when he won New York City Dance Alliance’s 2008 Senior Outstanding Dancer.


Pauline Mata. We’re so happy they decided to put her in the top 20 even though she was injured during Vegas week (Did you see her ankle?!) and couldn’t finish the Broadway audition or solos. —Michael Ann Bailey
