Performance/Results Show (October 27, 2009)Edit

Judges: Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, Adam Shankman

  • Due to network conflicts with the World Series, the show was unable to schedule a separate results show for the first two weeks. As a result, no public voting was held on those occasions; after the couples' performances, the judges alone selected four dancers to perform solos, and subsequently eliminated two. The standard format of a performance show followed by voting, with a results show the following night, resumed for the third week of competition.
