Wednesday TV: Last ‘Dance’ for Votes, Young Stars

The finale comes for “So You Think You Can Dance” (Fox, 8 p.m.) in a season marked by top notch dancers, the return of Mary Murphy and another shuffling of rules, with couples making way for all-star pairings.

The final four , jazz dancer Sasha Mallory, B-boy Tadd Gadduang, and contemporary dancers Melanie Moore and Marko Germar, will all perform with a quartet of all-stars. Guest judges tonight include Katie Holmes and Kenny Ortega. Viewers vote and a winner will be named Thursday.

“Primetime Nightline: Celebrity Secrets” (ABC, 10 p.m.) looks at when fame comes to the young, such as Rebecca Black, who became a star after a famously bad internet hit, as well as boy band Big Time Rush, and Eden Wood, pictured left, one of the most famous contestants on “Toddlers & Tiaras” (TLC, 10 p.m.).
