The Top 20 will be paired into 10 couples and work with world-renowned choreographers to create a dance routine representing their assigned genre, and, then, after the performances, viewers will have the chance to vote for their favorite dancers via phone, text and online, according to the information provided by Fox.

On the first performance and results show the following week at 7 p.m. Wednesday July 18, the 10 couples will perform again, but in this week’s assigned genre.
Additionally, viewer votes from the previous week will be disclosed and at the end of the show, the six finalists made up of the bottom three guys and bottom three girls will be revealed and may be given a chance to perform solo routines.
The judges will then decide which dancers will remain and which two will be eliminated, and if couples are split apart, the dancers who stay will form new couples.
