Contrary to what you saw last week, you haven't seen the last of Comfort Fedoke. Jessica King injured her leg and has had to leave the competition opening the door for Comfort to return. The "SYTYCD" panelists - Nigel, Mary, Mia, and Cat- were tight-lipped about the injury only saying it was serious and that it would require four to five weeks of rest. (We're guessing Fox wants to save the story for air).
Mia, surprisingly, thinks this could be a good chance for Comfort. "When I heard she was coming back, I was actually very happy about it," she said. "Last week we said that she hadn't reached her potential yet. So I have a feeling that she's going to step it up now. I really do."
Mary also revealed that she understands if some viewers don't exactly love her trademark shriek. "You're always free to hit the mute button," she said. "Unfortunately, Nigel doesn't have that opportunity. I guess as Entertainment Weekly last week measured -- they actually came in with a machine and measured how loud my scream can be at full tilt, and I am here to inform you today that I am louder than a vacuum cleaner, a rock band, and a small jet engine."
