It's been six seasons since Travis Wall last danced competitively on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, but fans who've missed him were in for a treat on Wednesday's first season 8 live show.

Crafting routines for Sasha Mallory and Alexander Fost and Melanie Moore and Marko Gemar, Wall delivered two of the night's best choreographed dances, according to judges Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe and guest judge Megan Mullally.

Performing a contemporary routine chronicling the end of a couple's relationship, Mallory (one of Adam Lambert's backup dancers) and Fost, were praised by Mullally for their storytelling. Still, all three judges felt the couple lacked a connection.

Moore and Gemar, on the other hand, made up for what Mallory and Fost lacked. Dancing a contemporary number as two statues who come alive to dance at night. An emotional Murphy declared the routine "magic," but the couple's -- and Wall's -- best critique came from Lythgoe.

"It's the first week, and this could be our first Emmy-nominated routine of the season," Lythgoe, SYTYCD's executive producer, gushed of the number, performed to Ingrid Michaelson's "Turn to Stone."
