Last week on SYTYCD no one was sent home which I have feelings about but it doesn’t really matter at this point. I think it was a very dramatic cop-out. Whoops, was going to save that opinion for later. Whoopsie! All Top 20 will be dancing again with 4 going home tomorrow night. Debbie Reynolds joins the Mary-Nigel judgment team for the evening. I believed Lady Gaga was going to judge this week, but alas, no. Let’s dance!
Ryan and Ricky are wacky and wild together. How cute. Mandy Moore choreographs the two in a jazz piece of sexiness and tension. I like her but I didn’t feel any chemistry between them. The routine was nice but it didn’t kill me. (Oh, Mary’s spray tan!) (What is Cat wearing?!)
Footloose movie trailer during the commercial break bores me. Julianna Hough is hot but the rest is Yawnsville. Looks just like the original that hasn’t aged well. Some things are better left done as it was. Alrighty FOX for the HIV+ mom and son commercial!
Kaytlin and Mitchell did an Adele contemporary to “Turning Tables” and it was lovely. Stacey Touki choreographed the beautiful piece. His leaps were amazing. She was love. Debbie Reynolds trying to steal the moment. Predictable.
Next up… Wadi and Missy danced and damn her legs and extension. Ballroom was the pick and the cha-cha was the taste. Oh, they looked a hot mess in rehearsal. For a b-boy he did good but needs to attack the floor more. Comes with technique. The routine was good but showed definite need for work when you break it down seriously. Again, Debbie acts up.
The “Kiss of Death” Bollywood routine was up next with Iveta and Nick. I was bored during the rehearsal clips. She had trouble finishing her moves and it lost steam. Wasn’t a winner, sadly.
Robert and Miranda (her legs!) paired up to do a NappyTabs hip-hop routine. White girl can dance. Hot routine. Didn’t mind it at all. Not always a fan of their work. They all did a great job! I love this show where the dancers do their humble headnod when they are complemented. Oh, Debbie does Woody Woodpecker. It’s Debbie’s night. Miranda fell?!
Another leggy gal Clarice and cutie Jess pulled the contemporary card. It was nice but sorta boring. Didn’t grab me. Have headed to get a snack. Next. I guess Debbie is there to agree with everything being great.
Jordan and Tadd take on the Viennese waltz and elegance is king. I’m a hard sell as the night goes on. I was bored and unmoved. Can’t say much more. It was fine.
My favorite Melanie danced next with Marco. Mandy Moore jazzed them up with hats and accents, strong and exact! The routine turned out real cute and very enjoyable. This couple is a great mix.
Sasha paired up with Alexander for a NappyTabs emotional hip-hop about soldiers returning from war. They performed it well, but again, it didn’t kill me. Not a favorite. Sorry. An emotional Mary was the true highlight for me.
Last up we had Chris and Ashley performing a Broadway number with sexual tension and jailhouse bars. This is from Cry Baby. Great use of the prop. Fun finale for the night!
Good show and will be glad to see some dancers go home. Too many to keep up with! Great job everyone! Good Night!
