So You Think You Can Dance, Ashley Galvan
For the second week in a row, a So You Think You Can Dance contestant was eliminated due to an injury.
Ashley Galvan was cut from the competition Thursday night. She experienced severe rib pain during her rehearsal on Monday. She was later told by two separate doctors that she had cracked a rib and would need at least three to five weeks of rest.

Executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe on Thursday said Galvan needed to recuperate for the tour, which will consist of dancers from Seasons 6 and 7, along with several all-stars.
"I'm very disappointed," Galvan said through tears after her elimination. "Thank you so much for everything."
