<p><span></span><em>So You Think You Can Dance</em> fan favorite <strong>Billy Bell</strong> has been forced to leave the show due to illness. He exclusively tells <em>Life & Style</em> that before this month, he'd never had such unfortunate luck.</p>
"I've had no physical roadblocks, really," Billy says.
Before earning his spot in the So You Think You Can Dance top 20, his ballroom partner in Las Vegas hit him in the face and injured his nose.
"[She gave me] a nice elbow into the left eye socket," Billy tells Life & Style. "It ended up fracturing a tiny part of my nose. I'd never had an injury before Vegas."
Billy's early departure from the show has left SYTYCD viewers wondering what might have been in this dancer's future. Billy's replacement joined the show Tuesday night.
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe has issued a statement conveying his sympathy for Billy: "We are disappointed that Billy cannot continue dancing in the competition on the advice of his doctor and wish him a speedy recovery."
