Comfort Fedoke replaces Dance's Jessica King



Tbdjessicaking071608 While there's still no news as to what exactly is wrong with her, So You Think You Can Dance contestant Jessica King is off the show and will be replaced by eliminated contestant Comfort Fedoke on Wednesday's show, Fox has announced. The network said an injury forced top 10 competitor King out, the AP reports.

"Her full recovery is paramount and will only come with rest," series executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe said, adding that King had given her blessing to semifinalist Fedoke's return.

"She sat with Jessica and the lovely story is she (Fedoke) said, `I am so unhappy that you are indisposed, but I thank God for the opportunity of coming back," Lythgoe recounted, adding, "And that just shows the determination of the young lady."

For you SYTYCD junkies, the contestants will be paired with new dance partners on Wednesday's two-hour performance show at 8 p.m., with viewer voting results announced Thursday at 9 p.m. Lythgoe said they'd talk more about Jessica tomorrow night, just to milk the drama a little more.
