We have been following So You Think You Can Dance through Season 12. With two new judges, two All-Star team captains and a twist in the competition: stage dancers vs. street dancers, it has been an exciting season. The two new superstar judges – Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo – joined Nigel Lythgoe at the judges’ table, alongside host Cat Deeley. Additionally, alumni tWitch and Travis Wall have served as team captains to the Top 20 dancers. Travis will coach the stage dancers and tWitch, the street dancers.

The two teams – the STAGE dancers with Travis, feature those trained in styles such as contemporary, ballet, jazz or tap; and the STREET dancers with tWitch, features those dancers skilled in styles such as hip-hop, animation or breaking. Although they have never faced each other in competition and both were runner-ups in their respective seasons, Travis and tWitch will go head-to-head now, fighting for one of their team members to be crowned America’s Favorite Dancer.

There is also the Twitter Save this season where the fans at home tweet for one dancer from each team they would like to see saved. Ultimately, the judges make the final decision as to which of the final two dancers in jeopardy on each side are saved, thereby eliminating one Stage and one Street performer.

To get to the final 10 performers there were six people who were in jeopardy. Two people were saved by Twitter and four were eliminated. Saved by Twitter was: Derek (again) and Neptune. Those who were sent home were- TEAM STAGE: KATE and ALEXIA; TEAM STREET: YORELIS and ARIANA.

The top top 10 for Season 12 of So You Think You Can Dance is as follows:
