The final four contestants on So You Think You Can Dance took the stage on Tuesday (11Sep12) and brought the judges to their feet with the series' first burlesque and animation routines. The talented field of dancers has been narrowed down to just four hopefuls, who were given one last chance to prove they are America's favorite dancer in Tuesday's performance show. Although a number of routines impressed judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Rob Marshall, it was two new genres that blew them away. The final two girls, Tiffany and Eliana, teamed up with choreographer Ray Leeper, who created a burlesque-inspired dance to the tune of When You're Good to Mama from the musical Chicago. The ladies gave a jazzy performance filled with high kicks and turns on a metal pole in the centre of the stage. Marshall, who directed the Oscar-winning film version of Chicago, praised the dancers and joked, "I'm just trying to imagine Queen Latifah (who played Mama) doing that!" Always one to make a snarky comment, Lythgoe added, "The last time I saw something like that, I was with (American Idol judge) Randy Jackson, but I won't go into it." In another series first, choreographer Christoper Scott concocted a robotic dance for contestant Cyrus and all-star Twitch, who left the judges stunned with their animation routine. Murphy gave her signature yell of approval and exclaimed, "So great to see the two of you together. You just nailed this sucker. You stole the show!" The second last man standing, Chechon, garnered two standing ovations from the judges - one after a ballet with Eliana, and the other following a dramatic performance with all-star Allison. Tuesday marks the final night of voting before the top guy and top girl will be announced in the season nine finale next week (18Sep12).
