Who was eliminated off So You Think You Can Dance Thursday night?

Spoiler alert! Nobody was. Two couples will go home next week.

Bottom three couples Robert Taylor, Taad Gudduang, Miranda Maleski, Clarice Ordaz, Jess LeProtto  and Jordan Casanova were spared.

Said guest judge Megan Mullally of the judges' choice to send nobody home: "It's crazy, they really are making the decision at the last second and there are these different ideas that were floated. And at the last minute, [judge Nigel Lythgoe] said, 'Wait, we're keeping everybody.'"

Judge Mary Murphy said she thought Mitchell would be going home. She told reporters backstage: "I was thinking it would have to be Mitchell [going home] because he didn't perform this week," explained judge Mary Murphy. "But when he did his solo it changed everything and with Robert's personality and the other two dancers we just couldn't see [who to send home]."

It will be tough to send four people home next week, Murphy says: "Now we are really, super celebrating, but it will be more difficult because we are now giving them another week to bond [before] their new best friends go home. It will be a shockwave that runs through this show and who may be on the top in our minds and the fans' minds could easily change by next week."
