Alex Wong says he was 'really living' when he was injured on 'So You Think You Can Dance'

Alex Wong's Achilles tendon split in half and is up his calf. Double ouch.

It's horrible, as horrible as it is for "So You Think You Can Dance" fans that he can no longer compete.

Wong was injured Tuesday night during his final rehearsal of his Bollywood number and needs surgery, which means he's eliminated from the competition.

"I was really living," he told Zap2it. "I was having so much fun. ... I was really, really going for the goal. ... There was probably six counts left in the choreography. I was really pissed off. I was like: Seriously now? I gave up so much to be here. I don't get injured that often, and an injury like that was so annoying."

Although executive producer Nigel Lythgoe invited Wong back to the show next year, Wong said he is not sure if he will return. In the meantime, he has picked a winner for this season: his buddy Kent Boyd. The dancers have been friends from the first day of auditions in Las Vegas.

"It sucks," Wong said. "I really wanted to continue. I knew he was always going to win anyway, but, still, I wanted to be by his side."
