SYTYCD results w/ videos: Emilio (IaMmE) chosen for top 20 but sidelined; 4 other hiphop/animators make it

The top 20 have been announced for Season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance. Last week, we reported that six hiphop dancers and animators were in the top 33, the pool from which the show would choose the dancers to be featured each week. Five of the six were chosen for the top 10: Emilio 'Millie' Dosal (member of America's Best Dance Crew Season 6's IaMmE), Mariah Spears, Dorian Bluprint Hector, Fik-Shun Stegal, and Jade Zuberi.

Unfortunately, Emilio was injured during the rehearsals for the opening show and will not appear this season. Here's hoping he recovers soon! 

The show featured separate performances by the hiphop duo that was left - Maria Spears and Fik-shun, and by the animators. Other show highlights: the top 10 guys routine was a nifty dance using sand (click here to watch) and the top 10 girls used a version of "Let's Have a Kiki" recorded by ABDC's Fanny Pak with District 78 (click here to watch)
