So You Think You Can Dance welcomed Jesse Tyler Ferguson to the judging panel this week for the Top 12 live performances. The Modern Family star joined Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Sonya Tayeh to have his say on the remaining contestants taking part in Wednesday night's live show.

It’s down to the final 6 couples, and next week they will break up the pairs. So tonight, the couples dance twice! The judges give specific critiques and say interesting and useful things, overall. And if you were waiting for it, tonight’s the night Ryan got told.
