Alex Wong, ballet dancer, brings "mad swag" and "swag for days," in the words of his proud choreographers and dance partner. After facing and conquering his biggest genre challenge -- hip-hop -- on Wednesday night's (June 30) "So You Think You Can Dance," Wong spills to Zap2it backstage, followed by his all-star partner Stephen "tWitch" Boss and choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo (aka Nappytabs).

At this point on So You Think You Can Dance, I should be saying something along the lines of "the finalists are finally hitting their stride" -- and indeed they are. Compared to previous weeks, I can remember more than one performance this week (although I probably remember some for the wrong reasons -- hello, Miss Froderman). But I've got a completely different thought: will this week be the week when tapper Melinda Sullivan finally heads home? She was saved from elimination last week after Nigel Lythgoe was overruled by his fellow judges -- but at the expense of Cristina Santana, and the fate of this season's female finalists. With only three girls left, it'd make some sense to keep all the girls for one more week and send home one of the guys. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
Tonight the Top 9 of So You Think You Can Dance take the stage and we'll see if the boys keep steamrolling the girls.

However, unlike my original idea, they're not doing it for everyone, which should be interesting. SPOILER WARNING: Don't read if you don't want to know who's dancing what with whom tonight.
