Thursday brings this week’s painstaking task of eliminating four of our Top 20 dancers. Helping judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy with the difficult decision will be the legendary Debbie Reynolds. She’ll be stepping in as Week 2’s guest judge.

For those of you not familiar with Miss Reynolds, we recommend renting Singin’ in the Rain this very minute. This Hollywood gem is know more for her acting abilities, having been nominated for an Oscar, an Emmy, and two Golden Globe Awards. Yet, she certainly taps up a storm alongside Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor during the jukebox 1952 musical.

Nigel has dropped several other names for future judges, including Lady Gaga, Niel Patrick Harris, and Kristen Chenoweth. But none of them will have to deal with saying goodbye to double the amount of dancers.

We can’t wait to see Debbie Reynolds return to TV and how the Top 20 dancers fend in Week 2 of Season 8.
