We were off the mark predicting last week's results on "So You Think You Can Dance." We pegged stage dancer Alexia Meyer and street dancer Eddie "Neptune" Eskridge as the two who would be eliminated, but instead, Team Stage lost Darion Flores (as predicted by only 2% of users), while Team Street said goodbye to Lily Frias (predicted by 6% of users). Will we do better this week?
Those may be smart bets because Parra and Crowder finished among the bottom three last week, so we know there may be limited fan support for them. But Twitter saved Parra from elimination, and the judges saved Crowder, so they might both have support where it counts. And any complacent fans who may have neglected to vote for them before could have rallied behind them after their close call.
Parra has 2/1 odds of being eliminated based on the predictions of 33% of users who think he'll be sent home. Next in line are Kate Harpootlian with 4/1 odds, Derek Piquette (who was also in last week's bottom three) with 6/1 odds and Meyer with 15/2 odds.
Crowder gets 3/2 odds of leaving Team Street based on the predictions of 40% of users. She's followed by Neptune (also in last week's bottom three) with 14/5 odds, choreography-challenged Asaf Goren with 9/2 odds and Burim Jusufi with 20/1 odds.
Who do you think will be eliminated?
User Denton Davidson won our "SYTYCD" contest for season 11 last summer and earned one of the top scores predicting last week's results, but he only agrees with one of our consensus choices. He thinks we're right about Crowder's elimination from Team Street, but he believes Harpootlian will get the boot instead of Parra from Team Stage (click here to see his complete predictions).
At the moment, Davidson is picking street dancer Virgil Gadson as this season's frontrunner, contradicting the rest of our users, who give ballet dancer Jim Nowakowski the strong advantage. So who's right?
