In what most fans consider as one of the toughest and most competitive Top 20 rounds of all time, we are now just a day away from the first true eliminations on Season 9 of So You Think You Can Dance! We, for one, are anxious to get the fun started with our analysis of who will most likely end up in the bottom three on Wednesday night’s show.

This season, eliminations will be a little more complicated due to changes in the show’s structure. As die-hard fans already know, the show has been condensed into one show per week, that will include elimination results which will be based on the fan vote resulting from the prior week’s competition and the judges’ final vote after a new round of competition. With this new structure in mind, we’ve set the ZabaSearch Prediction Engine to analyze a multitude of factors that might affect the fan vote and determine the bottom three dancers. However, since the judges will make the final elimination call based on the newest round of dances, at this time, we will be focusing only on choosing the bottom three.

Without further adieu, here are the ZScores and predictions for the first round of eliminations from the Top 20 on SYTYCD! Please note, Zscores represent the relative likelihood that a particular contestant will remain on the show. The higher the Zscore, the more likely the contestant will remain in the competition. The lower the Zscore, the more likely the contestant will be in the bottom three.
