So You Think You Can Dance 2010 results surprise: Nobody eliminated from SYTYCD July 22

In a surprise twist, nobody was eliminated from "So You Think You Can Dance" on Thursday night. Six dancers remain in the competition and two people will be eliminated next week.

Jose Ruiz, Robert Roldan and Billy Bell were in the bottom three on Thursday's show. Billy automatically entered the bottom three because he didn't dance on Wednesday's performance show. He was injured.

At the end of the show, judge Nigel Lythgoe said the panel couldn't decide and wanted to see all the dancers another week.

Here's a full recap of Thursday's show, which also featured a performance by Enrique Iglesias:

The show begins with a group dance to "All That Jazz" by Lea DeLaria. Choreographer is Kelley Abbey. Also, Kenny Ortega is still in the house.

"SYTYCD" pays tribute to Denise Jefferson, who was the director of the Ailey School. She recently passed away.

Results time. Lauren Froderman and Kent Boyd are safe.

We pause for some special guests from the American Ballet Theatre.

Down to Adechike Torbert, Robert Roldan and Jose Ruiz.

Injured Billy Bell is in the audience. He's automatically in the bottom three.

Adechike Torbert is safe.

So this week's bottom three is Billy Bell, Robert Roldan and Jose Ruiz.

Before they perform solos, DJ Smart dances to "Say You Will" by Kanye West. Apparently, DJ Smart was a top 24 hopeful this season but didn't advance. We also see some cool videos of people performing the National Dance Day routine. Learn it by clicking on the video that accompanies this page.

Nigel gives a National Dance Day update. Everything is on track for July 31.

All-stars Lauren Gottlieb and Neil Haskell pair for a pretty creepy routine to "Night of the Dancing Flame" by Roisin Murphy. My boyfriend accurately says the dance has a Tim Burton feel.

Nigel has some breaking news about the "SYTYCD" tour.

Which all-stars are touring? Allison Holker, Dominic Sandoval, Courtney Galiano and Ade Obayomi. Also, we'll have the top male and female from season six, also known as Russell Ferguson and Kathryn McCormick.

As far as this season goes, the top male and female will go on tour, as well as four others.

Robert Roldan solo: He dances to Ron Pope's "Fireflies" and does his usual Robert contemporary thing. Honestly, his solos don't do much for me.

Jose Ruiz solo: He does his b-boy thing to "It's Just Begun" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. I know Jose isn't versatile, but I liked his solo better than Robert's tonight.

Injured Billy Bell doesn't perform a solo. Enrique Iglesias sings while the judges deliberate.

Decision time: They haven't made up their minds. Some judges don't think Robert is growing. They have similar concerns about Jose, but think he's growing in his specialty. The judges have concerns about the fact that Billy could have danced this week, but he chose not to.

The outcome? Nobody is eliminated this week. Two people go home next week.
