Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Lady Gaga, for whom even the Bowling Hall of Fame figures among her many illustrious awards, will absolutely not rent bowling shoes. Her decision is not an issue of hygiene but rather her colossal devotion to her little monsters... and her image. Plus: the female stars of music really run the late night world in this compilation; Beyoncé, off of a powerful performance of "Best Thing I Never Had," tells the host she ran across the Great Wall of China; Kirstie Alley, having caught the dancing bug, shows David Letterman how to dance in New York City clubs, causing discomfort for the host during some especially intimate moments; and Glee's Jayma Mays performs the old 'sip 'n smile' in a coffee commercial that has percolated into her gleeful acting career. Watch our compilation to see what you missed.
Caitlynn and Jordan stood together holding hands while Jess and Tadd waved to their fans and family. Then it was announced that Jordan and Jess would be going home.
When we caught up with the two after the show, they were far from upset and are excited about the rest of the season, tour and what's to come.
"It's bittersweet to leave at this point in the competition," Jess said. "We've been attached to the show for quite some time so it's hard, but it's almost over though. Two weeks! It will be a blink of an eye. I think was an opportunity to show our talents. [As far as the future] I'm going back to New York, working, hopefully getting another show I'd love to be part of and branching out to other things. I'd love to do choreography and singing and acting. You never know what lies ahead of you, but whatever happens it's for a reason."
"After tour I would love to get into film and singing for a while and I haven't had the chance to because I'm a dancer," Jordan added. "It would be awesome to get into that and just be in this industry. I love it."
Talking with the judges after the show, they explained their decision to let Jess and Jordan go.
"Well, we all knew when we hit the top 10 it was going to be difficult," judge Mary Murphy said. "They are all really great dancers. Jess and Tadd both had great solos. So what are you going to do? One just slightly edged out the other one. Tadd came out with a totally different solo and kind of shocked us! Tadd really did fight for his life and showed us a different side. That made it a little bit easier."
"We went in with different ideas. We were unanimous in a very short period of time," Nigel Lythgoe added. "We all believe that the girls did a really bad job tonight. We went back to Caitlynn's tango. Mary reminded us how brilliant Caitlynn was in the tango and I think that brought us into focus a little bit more."
As the finale rapidly approaches, Nigel did share his idea of who he feels will be in the final four.
"We do think that we'll probably end up with Marko and Sasha and Melanie and another in the finale," he said. "That's what all the voting has been all these weeks now. There is nothing, especially when they are getting better and better that leads me to believe that is going to change in any way. So who is going to be the other guy there?"
Mary says she thinks it could be a wild card like Ricky to nab that finale spot.
"For me Ricky is a dark horse that is coming through under the radar," she said. "I think he's quite surprising, he gives unbelievable duets in this competition. I have serious respect for Ricky, and he has this cute boyish charm that I don't think we should underestimate him."
However, guest judge Rob Marshall feels Tadd still may have the edge to go all the way.
"My gut feeling is Tadd has more of an edge because he is different and he comes from a unique place," he said. "When you watch Marko and Ricky they both have this incredible ballet technique. That's where they come from. Tadd comes from a different place and i think that may be embraced because it's different."
