Will Desmond Richardson eliminate in 'So you think you can dance'?

Lauren danced an Argentine tango with with All Star Pasha Kovalev. For her second piece, it was a jazz number by Shawn Cheesman with All Star Ade Obayomi.

Adechike Torbert and All Star Lauren Gottlieb paired up for an Afro-jazz routine. For his second routine, Adechike was partnered with All Star Kathryn McCormick for a piece created by Adechike’s dance idols, Dwight Roden and Desmond Richardson.

Oh so cool that Adechicke got a routine choreographed especially for him by his dance idol, Desmond Richardson, and his Complexions partner Dwight Rhoden. He danced this contemporary routine with Kathryn. This was a lot of fun. Fast, fun, American, full of youthful romance. Very Jon Bon Jovi-like. Kathryn was splendid. As for Adechicke: I think he has serious potential. But I don’t think he’s quite there yet. In thinking of how Desmond Richardson would have done that, it just fell short for me. Desmond just has this insane precision, and absolute perfection of line. And Adechicke was lacking both. But of course how can you compare someone at Adechicke’s level to someone who’s at the height of both his physicality and artistry like Desmond? You just can’t. It takes a lot of time, and a real dance maturity that comes with years and years of experience, to develop that. So he needs to keep working, keep trying, keep growing. I really want to root for him! Especially after he got so emotional about being able to take training from his hero, and about being from Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, a rough neighborhood where being a male dancer is not taken so well.

Watch So You Think You Can Dance Season 7 tonight at 9:00 PM ET on FOX and see the result on who among the four will be going to the top three. Performances by rapper Flo Rida, Ballet dancer Desmond Richardson and singer Janelle Monáe will be also in the TV show.
