The three couples who received the fewest votes after Wednesday's performance show were: Kourtni Lind and Matt Dorame; Rayven Armijo and Jamie Bayard; and Jessica King and Will Wingfield. After each of the six dancers performed a solo routine, the judges eliminated Rayven Armijo and Jamie Bayard from the competition. Armijo, 28, is a Contemporary/Ballet dancer from La Puente, CA, and Bayard, 22, is a West Coast Swing dancer from Palm Springs, CA.
Next week, the competition revs up on television's most original dance show when the remaining 18 finalists (Joshua Allen, Twitch Boss, Marquis Cunningham, Matt Dorame, Comfort Fedoke, Courtney Galiano, Susie Garcia, Chelsie Hightower, Chris Jarosz, Thayne Jasperson, Mark Kanemura, Jessica King, Kourtni Lind, Gev Manoukian, Kherington Payne, Katee Shean, Chelsea Traille and Will Wingfield) compete as couples once again on a two-hour performance show Wednesday, June 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). The following night, Flo Rida will perform and the judges will send two more dancers home on the live results show Thursday, June 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
