We're getting down to the last weeks of Season 10 of "So You Think You Can Dance," a time when the dancers' nerves often get the best of them and some fail while others rise like cream to the top. This week, two more dancers will be sent home, leaving only six hopefuls to compete for the Final Four.

The quirky, mod-Goth opening number by Mia Michaels set the mood for the night with tricky moves and incredible choreography. And host Cat Deeley, clad in black-sequined pants, top and even eye makeup, looked like she was going to be crowned queen of the Vampire Ball. Head judge Nigel Lythgoe and judge Mary Murphy were joined by a first-time guest judge, actress Jenna Elfman, whose dancing background was detailed by Cat.

Since there were no injuries to report, the only bad news that Cat had was the names of the four dancers in the bottom and in danger of being eliminated -- Fik-Shun (dang), Jenna, Tucker and Hayley. Jenna and Tucker escaped being sent home last week only by the skin of their teeth -- can it happen again? Nigel asked that all four dance solos, featuring their own genre, and all did a good job. Now, on to the routines, with the dancers explaining who inspired them the most.

  • Aaron with All-Star Chelsie Hightower (Season 4 and "Dancing With the Stars") -- jive

    Aaron described how his best friend had inspired him and who is still with him in spirit after his death. The jive choreographed by Chelsie was awesome, with a "classic '50s feel," she said. The number was high-energy and full of movement, some of which Aaron missed but recovered quickly and well. Mary called it fun and fast, and said Aaron did well even with a couple of "missed bits." Jenna said she was impressed with Aaron's journey (that he wants to be more than a tapper) and that he was a "money dancer -- when it's on, you bring it!"

    n Fik-Shun with All-Star Allison Holker (Season 2 and Emmy-nominated choreographer with Derek Hough on DWTS) -- contemporary

    Fik-Shun's inspiration is his mom and dad, who each tell how proud they are of him. This contemporary dance style is way outside Fik-Shun's comfort zone and could signal the end of his run on the show if he doesn't do well, but he is remarkable, even when he struggled with one lift but then smoothly got right back into the routine. Jenna said that Allison is the dancer she wants to be, and that Fik-Shun was awesome, can do no wrong and was already an All-Star. Nigel said it was a beautiful routine, that Allison danced brilliantly and that being in the bottom may have grounded Fik-Shun. He also said that there is a quality about Fik-Shun's work that can't be ignored. Mary added that their dancing made her heart sing. Watch out, Tucker, Fik-Shun is on his game!

  • Tucker with All-Star Courtney Galiano (Season 4) -- jazz

    Tucker talked about how he is inspired by his father, who has always supported him. The Romeo and Juliet piece had tons of lifts and leaps, and both dancers did a great job. But Nigel spent most of his time talking about how great it is that Tucker's father supports his career choice (while the camera kept showing someone else in the audience) and then launched into how Courtney was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was blind in one eye for a month last year, but little about the routine. Mary called the routine a "real triumph," and Jenna said it was "so special."

  • Paul with All-Star Comfort Fedoke (Season 4) -- hip-hop

    Paul's inspiration is his coach, who cheers him on. This routine was as far away from his style as possible -- hip-hop not Latin ballroom, sharp moves instead of smooth glides. But Paul really gave it his all and with the exception of a couple times when ballroom surfaced, he did a great job with Comfort. Mary started with, "Way to go, Comfort!" and then called Paul "one of the most versatile dancers in this show." Jenna added that when she first saw Paul audition, never in a million years did she imagine him doing hip-hop, and Nigel said that when Paul needed to get down and dirty, he did.

  • Hayley with All-Star Dmitry Chaplin (Season 2 and DWTS) -- rumba

    Her two dance instructors are Hayley's inspiration, and both say they are on Team Hayley. This romantic, sexy routine (of course, Dmitry has his shirt open) is smooth and emotional, even without a lot a major moves. Jenna said she "could spend the next two minutes on Dmitry" and blows him kisses, while she said that there is nothing Hayley can't do, she advised the dancer to "stop protecting and let it rip" one time. Mary said Hayley got it right and that the routine was phenomenal.

  • Jenna with All-Star Mark Kanemura (Season 4) -- jazz

    Another dancer is inspired by someone who died -- Jenna's inspiration is her cousin Shana, who died from muscular dystrophy. The routine was daunting, stylish and totally Mark, and it was my favorite routine of the show. Jenna did a terrific job, matching Mark move for move. Nigel said so much choreography is similar but this routine was fantastic, and that Jenna had taken Makenzie's place as his favorite. (Makenzie was cut last week -- what will Nigel do if Jenna is sent home tonight? He's running out of favorites!) Mary decided that everyone is a little crazy on the show, that it was great choreography and that Jenna "did it marvelously." Jenna said, "Jenna, I love your name," and that she has a long career ahead of her.

  • Jasmine with All-Star tWitch Boss (Season 4) -- hip-hop

    Jasmine, who was inspired by her mom, and tWitch danced a routine that was an "all-out superhero war." This was a lot of fun, very creative and showed that Jasmine, a contemporary dancer, can take on hip-hop and do it well. Mary said she was dancing and firing on all cylinders, Jenna liked how tWitch brought his sense of humor and Nigel said Jasmine almost "out-tWitched" tWitch! Jenna called her "unique," and that she owned the routine.

  • Amy with All-Star Travis Wall (Season 2 and nominated for an Emmy for SYTYCD) -- contemporary

    Amy is inspired by her cousin Elizabeth, who is a dancer and was a Rockette. I knew that with Travis doing the choreography and dancing, this would be a special routine, but it was even more beautiful than that. All about the pushing and pulling in a new relationship, the number was filled with awesome leaps and turns that took my breath away. Travis is incredible and Amy did a great job of matching him as an All-Star. After a standing ovation, Jenna said the choreography was perfection and congratulated Amy on how she communicated her emotions. Nigel said that he thought Travis was going to "achieve a level beyond your wildest dreams," and that he was a genius. Mary, while saying that Amy's previous routines have been "cutesy," this one had incredible moves, and that Travis had fantastic dancing and choreography.

    At the end of the show, the judges had a devil of a time selecting who would be not going forward. In fact, they were still discussing backstage when the show came back from commercial and Cat had to call them to their places. With four terrific dancers, it must have been a stinker of a decision, and in the end, it was a stunner -- Jenna and Tucker were eliminated from the competition. But Nigel kept saying how they would be back next week, which is confusing since there are still six dancers, of which two will be cut in order to have the Final Four. The Top 6 are Aaron, Fik-Shun, Paul, Amy, Jasmine and Hayley -- who do you think will be in the Final Four? And who will be crowned the winner? See you next week -- keep dancing!
