SYTYCD Aug. 5 results: Adechike Torbert doesn't make So You Think You Can Dance Top 3

Adechike Torbert was eliminated from "So You Think You Can Dance" on Thursday.

Lauren Froderman, Kent Boyd and Robert Roldan will compete in next week's season finale. Robert joined Adechike in this week's bottom two dancers.

The results show featured guest performances by Janelle Monae and Flo Rida. Monae is known for her song "Tightrope." Watch the music video by clicking on the clip that accompanies this page.

Flo Rida is known for songs like "Low" and "Right Round." He sang "Club Can't Handle Me."

Here's a full recap of Thursday's show:

***

The episode kicks off with a pretty cool group routine to "Drumming Song" by Florence + The Machine. Choreographer is Dee Caspary.

We see some highlights from National Dance Day. Nigel says we'll get even more highlights next week, including something from NASA. He adds he's been "coerced" into doing another tap routine for the finale.

Also, they're re-creating the Twitch/Alex Wong hip-hop routine. The person replacing Alex is a dance legend, apparently. No more hints.

Janelle Monae performs "Tightrope." I like her. I had mixed thoughts at first, but she kind of grows on you. I bet Nigel had a hard time resisting an urge to jump on the stage and tap during her performance.

We're in for lots of fillers tonight. Everybody's doing a solo, apparently.

Lauren Froderman dances to "Wasted Time" by Me'Shell Ndegeocello. I have nothing new to say about these solos.

We get some footage of the dancers at the Gatorade Performance Lab. Hmm, perhaps this trip would have been more useful BEFORE the surge in injuries. The contestants learn about staying hydrated. All-stars Twitch and Courtney go through additional testing. We learn they're in great shape.

Kent Boyd dances a solo to "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz.

Results time. Cat will reveal one of the top two dancers. More than 10 million calls came in Wednesday night, Cat says.

Lauren Froderman advances to the top three!

Quick promo for the "SYTYCD" tour.

Adechike Torbert dances a solo to "Sir" by various artists. I love it when Adechike wears jeggings -- you know, jean leggings.

Robert Roldan dances a solo to "Mr. Muscle" by Rusko.

More results. Who else made the top two? Kent Boyd! Nigel reminds Kent to control his face.

So far, Kent and Lauren are in the finale. Either Adechike or Robert will be eliminated.

We break for a performance by Desmond Richardson. Music is "Sympathy for the Devil" by The Rolling Stones.

More filler. We see what happened when the crew watched "Step Up 3D." Full disclosure: I want to see this. The movie comes out Friday!

Flo Rida performance! He sings "Club Can't Handle Me." Sigh. This song is the story of my life.

Final results. Who's going home?

Adechike Torbert is eliminated.

So Lauren Froderman, Kent Boyd and Robert Roldan will compete in next week's finale.
