Jessica King out due to injury, Comfort back in

Last Thursday, So You Think You Can Dance 4 revealed its top 10, but already, one of those contestants is out due to an injury: Jessica King will be replaced by Comfort Fedoke, who was eliminated Thursday.

Judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe refused to explain the nature of her injury or the timeline, telling TV critics this morning, “I’m afraid I can’t be specific. … I’ve been instructed not to discuss the injury. … We’ll be specific on the show.” He said she’ll talk about it Wednesday, but “the fact is, I’ve been instructed not to, because you have a law here that says I can’t discuss the injury.”

Comfort was scheduled to dance at the start of Fox’s presentation to critics this morning, but Cat Deely said the top 10 were busy rehearsing, so instead Thayne showed up alone to perform a solo. Before that, Matt and Kourtni performed their foxtrot from week two—and proved why they were eliminated, as they were very unimpressive in person, which was disappointing.

The top 10 are Joshua Allen, Stephen “Twitch” Boss, Comfort Fedoke, Courtney Galiano, Chelsie Hightower, Mark Kanemura, Gev Manoukian, Kherington Payne, Katee Shean, and William Wingfield. Nigel accidentally revealed that Courtney’s paired with Joshua, but the other pairs aren’t yet known.
