Katrina Lyndon and Tom Shilcock have become the latest dancers to be eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance 2011. The pair were axed by the judging panel in tonight’s show after coming amongst the lowest placed dancers after the public vote.
Katrina and Tom found themselves in the bottom four for the first time alongside Bethany Rose and Israel tonight, after the top 10 were paired up and all performed two routines for the first time.
With head judge Nigel Lythoe away in the US and John Barrowman stepping in to cover for him, Arlene Phillips took on the role of delivering the bad news.
“Week on week you have delighted us with the challenges you have faced having been a ballerina,” Arlene told Katrina first. “Tonight however hasn’t been your best night.”
“Bethany, you had a slow start in the competition and then suddenly you turned things around but obviously the viewers don’t feel the same way.”
“This isn’t unanimous,” Arlene told the pair, “But the girl leaving is Katrina.
“I’ve just loved every single minute of everything, I’ll miss it so much. Thank you for everything, it’s changed my life. Just performing here every Saturday is the most incredible feeling I’m going to miss it so much,” a teary Katrina told host Cat Deeley.
Onto the guys and Arlene said simply: “Guys I’m just going to cut straight to the chase because it is a unanimous decision… the boy leaving us tonight is Tom.”
“I just want to say a big thank you to all the chorographers, it’s been amazing working with you,” the 23-year-old said.
