And as much as effusive "Modern Family" star and guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson would like all the dancers to carry on for another week, two more members of the "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 8 cast will fall during Thursday's results.
So before we tear these happy partnerships apart, forcing the remaining 10 into the strong, experienced arms of the "Sytycd" all-stars, they get one more night together.
And two dances.
But who made the best of their first double feature -- and who's almost definitely dancing for their life this week? We've got analysis, couple by couple, right here:
Alexander and Sasha
Dance #1: Tony Meredith and Melanie Lapatin (she of the greatest "Sytycd" moment ever) choreograph a postmodern Paso Doble where the dancers play dueling matadors. The judges don't go overboard in their praise, but
