Tears were streaming during So You Think You Can Dance Wednesday – even before two more dancers were sent home.

The night turned emotional early on, when, with his Swiss parents in the audience for the first time, ballet dancer Cheyon Wespi-Tschopp took to the stage for his solo. "You have to remember these dancers are kids who have dreamed of doing this their whole life," guest judge Jesse Tyler Ferguson told PEOPLE after Wednesday’s show. "They grew up far away from L.A. and then are transplanted here. I think it is overwhelming for them."

Jennie Garth made sure Monday night was relaxing for herself and for her three kids.

The actress and daughters Luca, Lola and Fiona came through 104.3 My FM's My Big Night Out 2 VIP lounge, at the Hollywood Bowl, where she was treated to a paraffin massage from a Burke Williams masseuse.

"Jennie told her kids to take photos with her," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked amazing and appeared to have shed some pounds. She seemed like she was in a great mood."

Following her pampering session, the newly single star rewarded her little ones for their patience by taking them to watch Kelly Clarkson in concert later that night.

The pop star performed a slew of hits, including, "My Life Would Suck Without You," "Since U Been Gone" and "Stronger," along with a cover of Fun.'s "We Are Young."

Just a couple of days earlier, the Bowl brought out Jerry O'Connell and Eric Stonestreet, who came to watch a performance of The Producers. The musical stars O'Connell's wife Rebecca Romijn, and Stonestreet's on-screen Modern Family beau, Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

"Jerry and Eric both looked beaming and happy," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Mel Brooks took the stage at the end."
