'So You Think You Can Dance': Jessica is injured; Comfort is back in
Fox's TCA press tour session on Monday led off with a "So You Think You Can Dance" panel, and there was actually news. Since last week's elimination episode on Thursday, Jessica King, who had made the top 10, was injured. Meaning, Comfort Fedoke, the most recently eliminated female dancer, is back in the competition.
The panelists -- Nigel Lythgoe, Cat Deeley, Mia Michaels and Mary Murphy -- would not elaborate on what the injury is or when it happened, even when pressed. "I've been instructed not to talk about the injury, I have to say," Lythgoe said. When a reporter continued asking for details, he said, "You have a law here that says I cannot discuss the injury," and that he wanted to change the subject.
As for Comfort's future on the show, since she had been among the bottom three couples several times before her ouster, Michaels said, "Last week we said she hadn't reached her potential yet, so I have a feeling she's going to step it up."
