We're down to 14 on So You Think You Can Dance. Let's review how we arrived at that number last night...

Group Dance - Broadway (Michael Rooney): The geek in me loved that the tune was from The Incredibles. The choreography looked a bit chaotic because of how many dancers there were; several weren’t synchronized. This was the most obvious with the flips and the leaps, but even one arm in the wrong place sticks out. I did like the group assist slow turn at the end; we’ll probably see a dance crew try that in the future.

Caitlynn Lawson and Ricky Jaime

Eliminations - The first three couples were up, with Melanie/Marko safe, kisses and all. Ashley/Chris were in the bottom mostly because their piece had a disconnect with the audience. It wasn't anything about their technique because they were spot on. Finally, Ryan/Ricky were safe, thus proving that dances from the heart are successful.

I hate to sound like Kelly, but Simon is so weird. He's always creeped me out and this installment of The Real Housewives of New York City was no exception. So let's recap everyone's quirks in our patented +/- review, shall we?

Cindy throws a party to launch her new wax and body bejeweling kits. Everyone gets into the act, but PLUS 10 for Brad going all out with a bejeweled tramp stamp. No, we haven't gotten to the weird part yet.

Simon in Trouble

That takes place when Simon finds Jill. First, he sits down so close he's practically feeling her up. MINUS 5 for already making me uncomfortable. Then he starts the conversation by saying, "You and Alex have burned."

Excuse me? As Jill is just as confused as the rest of us, he explains that he's referring to Jill and Alex sharing the fire pit. Finally, he goes into his request for lunch because "we need to talk."

We're down to 16 contestants and most of them were fighting hard to stay in the competition last night.

The judging panel was increased from three to four, with Kristin Chenoweth joining Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe and Lil' C. As you might expect, Lil' C and Chenoweth were hawking new albums as they critiqued the following performers...

Tadd Gadduang and Jordan Casanova

Group One Performance (Ryan, Sasha, Tadd, Mitchell, Marko, Miranda, Clarice, Chris) - I'll be the first to admit that I'm tired of Tyce's Broadway choreography. I was more interested in the fact that someone stuck tap lights under the chairs. The guys’ choreography was off. The girls had an easier time using the chair as props in the first half; when the girls were attempting their high kicks, it looked like Miranda kicked someone in the face. At least all the chairs ended in the right places all the time. My Grade: B

With the Las Vegas rounds (thankfully!) looming, there were several great performers on America's Got Talent last night, as the show saved them in hopes they' be fresh in our minds....

On the America's Got Talent Scene

The Contenders
Fatally Unique - The team was well coordinated in the beginning, but I liked how they tried to have boxes to break out of. The members hit really hard and they were very similar to the crew Live in Color from America's Best Dance Crew. Hopefully, they could afford something better than cardboard boxes that fall over for the Vegas rounds.

The second set of auditions in New York City ramped up the weird on America's Got Talent, starting with zombies chasing girls. There were some true oddities that actually had some potential to be a real Vegas act, however.

Let's run it down...

Sharon Osbourne as a Judge

The Smag Bros. - Bill and Pat started off with some talented wheelie work and it was really synchronized. The fact that they could do such a great job on a small and slippery floor was amazing. Anything attempting to crush a friend was worth watching.

Shemika Charles - In the preview she said that she was the world record holder, but we never got her story on the show. It's really pretty disappointing when you're the focus on the commercials, but given a five-second preview.

NBA star Gilbert Arenas wants to pull the plug on Basketball Wives: Los Angeles, claiming his baby mama is exploiting him by appearing on the show.

The Orlando Magic guard claims Laura Govan - the mother of his 4 children, and to whom he is NOT married to - simply wants to be a reality TV star.

In a lawsuit, Arenas claims that while Wives won't mention him by name "the very presence of [Laura Govan] and the title is an obvious reference."

Arenas notes his name was used in a press release announcing Govan's casting.

Step Into the Arenas

Gilbert claims Govan and the producers have no right to use his name or image  - expressed or implied - so he's asking for an injunction to halt the show.

He also wants cash for his troubles. He'll need it. Govan slapped Arenas with a child support lawsuit at halftime of a game this spring against the Heat.

LeBron also scored 51 against him that night. Talk about getting served!

NFL star Terrell Owens had surgery on a torn ACL in his knee, according to ESPN, which cites a source claiming he hurt himself filming The T.O. Show.

The athlete has not commented on the injury, but the best case scenario would like be that he could be available to play in "mid to late November."

That assumes there's a season (the NFL is currently in an ongoing labor dispute with no end in sight) and someone wants T.O. (he's not that good).

T.O. Photo

Owens' mediocre season with the Cincinnati Bengals was cut short when he tore meniscus cartilage in his left knee in late December of last year.

Will we see Terrell Owens on the field again? If not, his legacy will be ... unique.

By the numbers, he's one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. But come on. It's T.O. He'll likely be best remembered for being a malcontent with a desperate need for attention who wore out his welcome with five teams.

In a way, an injury sustained on his VH1 show would be a fitting end to the career of a man whose talent has long been overshadowed by narcissism.

So You Think You Can Dance eliminated four hopefuls last night, following a week in which no one went home. Who got the axe? A review of the evening's performances and decisions follows...


Top 20: Hip-Hop (Dave Scott) - The slow run made a return from last night; I guess Dave Scott was convinced that the slow-motion run was an emotionally grabbing element of choreography. The middle looked like a step aerobics class because all the dancers were lined up so equally with spotlights for each dancer.

The Eliminations: We started with Missy & Wadi, who were in the bottom three. All of Missy's hard work couldn't compensate for Wadi's wooden performance. Caitlynn & Mitchell and Sasha & Alexander were both safe. In the second set, Miranda & Robert, Melanie & Marko, and Jordan & Tadd were safe, with Iveta & Nick joining the bottom three; people probably forgot to vote for them. In the final cluster of couples, Ashley & Chris and Clarice & Jess were safe. Ryan & Ricky was the final couple in the bottom three.

It's great to have Heidi Montag back, gaunt and plastic as she may be.

The Hills alum is teaming up with other annoying reality stars Danielle Staub (The Real Housewives of New Jersey) and Jake Pavelka (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Dancing With the Stars, Bachelor Pad) on a new show.

Yes, we're serious.

"People think I'm this train wreck that hasn't wrecked yet," Mrs. Spencer Pratt informs the camera. "Little do they know, I actually have a brain."

She's right ... we really didn't know.

In this clip from Famous Food, which debuts July 10 on VH1, Heidi Montag meets her new costars, who will work together to launch a restaurant.

The Sopranos' Vincent Pastore meets the aforementioned trio and, after mistaking Danielle and Heidi for hot chicks, shoots down her first idea.

High-end Mexican or not, Heidi & Co. will work with restaurateurs Mike Malin and Lonnie Moore, who will judge their efforts. We can't WAIT.

Check out a sneak peek here:

Tuesday night, The Voice top eight performed for a spot in the finals. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton scored their team's singers. Those scores, along with America's votes, determined who advances.

So who got sent home and who's on to the final four?

Before we get to that, the show opened with all eight semifinalists singing a medley of "Freedom" and "Faith" by George Michael. It was pretty great:

On to the good and bad news. Each coach submitted a score, dividing up 100 points between their two members. America's votes were then added in, with equal weight, establishing who advanced and whose dreams ended.

Follow the jump to see who survived ...
