Well, we all knew that the top 4 finalists were giving it there all, but it’s sad when they have to be hospitalized. Here’s the report:
Two dancers in the Top 4 of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance collapsed at rehearsals Saturday and had to be rushed by ambulance to nearby Cedars Sinai Hospital–just days before the reality series season finale.
“Two went in [Saturday] and so there was no more rehearsals, and today [Sunday] all the rehearsals were called off,” ballroom expert and SYTYCD judge Mary Murphy confirmed to PEOPLE at Fox’s 2008 Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Sunday. “The kids are completely dehydrated – two of them. I’m sure they’re doing a lot of blood work to see if there’s anything else.”
A source close to the show said that the two dancers are out of the hospital, doing better and will return to rehearsals Monday.
Leading up to the finale, the dancers have been putting in 10 to 12 hour rehearsals a day, because “they want it so bad,” says Murphy, adding “so, they keep pushing themselves and pushing themselves and not letting anybody know that, ‘Hey, I’m running on empty,’ and then it catches up on them and then they collapse.”
Glad to hear that they are alright and out of the hospital. Stephen ‘Twitch’ Boss, Katee Shean, Courtney Galiano and Joshua Allen are the four remaining dancers in the competition. My guess is that it was Katee and Courtney. After all they are 2 rather petite girls that could easily become dehydrated.
I also read that the Jonas Brothers will be performing for the finale. Of course, we can also look forward to a sweet group routine with some of our favorites and isn’t there suppose to be a dance off? My guess is that the dance off will be a little disappointing.
