This is a sad news for those of you who adores Billy Bell, as Fox has announced his withdrawal from So You Think You Can Dance on sixth season due to unspecified illness.
Sadly, Bell – a 19-year-old contemporary dancer from West Palm Beach, FL quits and not going to continue to perform on the show. She was one of the Fox reality competition’s finalist during last week’s Top 20. Bell, who is now living in New York, NY and studying dance at The Juilliard School, has many talents and have performed everything from hip hop to classical ballet. He will be replaced by Brandon Dumlao in So You Think You Can Dance.
“We are disappointed that Billy cannot continue dancing in the competition on the advice of his doctor and wish him a speedy recovery,” So You Think You Can Dance executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe said. “However, we are fortunate that Brandon Dumlao has agreed to return.”
Dumlao is a 21-year-old hip hop dancer from Concord, CA. Another contestant to quit the show after Mia Michaels who left earlier also because of sickness. Maybe the competition is going too hard for them, don’t you think?
