Finalist Alexie Agdeppa, 26, a Jazz dancer from Rowland Heights, CA, was eliminated tonight on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. After America’s vote was revealed, Agdeppa, Cristina Santana and Melinda Sullivan were the three dancers who received the fewest votes. Judges Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels and Adam Shankman asked the three finalists to perform a solo routine and then eliminated Agdeppa.
