SYTYCD’s Lauren hospitalized for dehydration; Nigel Lythgoe already thinks he’s on Idol

After an episode in which all the remaining finalists actually danced, the Nigel Lythgoe-declared So You Think You Can Dance front-runner Lauren Froderman was hospitalized for dehydration after the show last night. At the end of the show, Cat said she was being seen by medics.

Later, previously eliminated injured contestant Alex Wong, who was in the audience, wrote on Twitter that “I think Lauren will be fine to compete next week. She was dehydrated and very dizzy. She went to the hospital for some tests.” Nigel Lythgoe just wrote on Twitter this morning, “Sorry I can’t tell you what the problem was with Lauren until I speak with her and her Doctor later today. I just don’t know at this point.”

Meanwhile, while judging Lauren, Nigel Lythgoe referred to his show as American Idol, which is understandable considering the news, although considering he was judging when he said it, I hope he’s not thinking of replacing the judges with himself.
