OREM, Utah -- “So You Think You Can Dance” contestant Alexia Meyer got a warm welcome home after being eliminated from the show Monday night.

Meyer, of Orem, arrived home to her neighborhood to find a surprise welcome home party Tuesday evening. Family, friends, neighbors and church members were there to celebrate her success.

“I was expecting just to go back home, go back to bed and crawl into my bed and go to sleep and so seeing everyone here and excited for me and supporting me even after it’s over means a lot,” Meyer said.alexia sytycd

Meyer said she's going to keep dancing and hopes to be an alternate in the upcoming “So You Think You Can Dance” tour.

This week was a double elimination and Meyer was sent home after she didn't get enough Twitter votes.

Another Utah dancer, Hailee Payne, is still in the competition.

The show airs again on Monday when the top 10 will fight for their spots on Teams Stage and Street.
