SYTYCD7 - Much Ado About Nothing

So You Think You Can Dance - Season 7 - Top 6 Results Night - The Cut From 6 to 5 - Ep. 717
Judges: Nigel Lythgoe, Mia Michaels, Adam Shankman and Kenny Ortega

Top 6 Group Dance with the All-Stars
Choreographed by: Kelly Aykers
Song: "All That Jazz" - Lea DeLaria
Grade: A-

I was loving it, partly because I love the song from Chicago to begin with, partly because I really enjoy Lea's version, and partly because I think they should just make a full Broadway musical starring the SYTYCD All-Star dancers, so I was digging it all. Ok, so I only noticed Kent from this season, while the All-Stars seemed to get front and centre... but... um... oh well.

The choreography seemed actually smart and sophisticated and fully utilized Mark Kanemura and the other great dancers... and it felt ... not like the normal faux-Fosse we see time and time again on this show...

So I'm glad to see I was right and it was NOT Tyce DiOrio who choreographed. AH!!! No wonder I liked it so much more than the normal Broadway swill he tries to pass off on this show.



So they also announce which All-Stars are going on tour (wait, it's not all of them? Why not?)

Allison Holker S2
Dominic "D-Trix" Sandoval S3
Courtney Galiano S4
Ade Obayomi S5
Russell Ferguson S6 - Winner
Kathryn McCormick S6

And then the winner and top female (let's face it, a boy's gonna win this year) (which also means it's Lauren Froderman as the top female left) with 4 more from Season 7. That's it? BOOO... I mean, It's a good bunch but no Neil? Pasha? Mark? (Wha'sda point)


My Predictions from the Top 6 Performances
Bottom Three: Jose, Robert and Billy who is automatically in already.

Jose should be going home, but who knows who really is gonna be in the bottom 3 this week. I've been wrong with my predictions every week. And even though I thought it was Adéchiké's best week, I still prefer Robert, Kent and Billy over him, but Adéchiké has never been in the bottom 3, so why start now? And even if Lauren was in the bottom 3, no way are the judges going to let the last girl go at this point.

Going Home Jose
His smile can only take him so far.


The actual results were:
Billy is automatically in the bottom 3 this week due to his injury.
Lauren is safe.
Kent is safe.
Adéchiké is safe.
Which means both Robert and Jose are in the bottom 3.

Damnit, I was right.














The Experts:
The American Ballet Theatre
Don Quixote - Act III Grand Pas de Deux
Leon Minkus

D.J. Smart, Jr.
Song: "Say You Will" - Kanye West
Um, look at those things on this guy. The guy is a beast! And seems to be doing some slavery/Amistad dance. It'd be sad if he wasn't doing so many crazy tricks with the power of his body. DAMN.


Lauren Gottlieb and Neil Haskell
Choreographed by: Wade Robson
Song: "Night of the Dancing Flame" - Róisín Murphy
From Season 3, Top 14 Performances

Man, loved this dance. LOVE this dance. Always so happy to see Neil and Lauren dance on stage together.



The Filler:
Enrique with Pitbull (does he not go by Iglesias anymore?) performs "I Like It". Boy, that's sure presumptuous.
Lauren and Allison dance. D-Trix breakdances. Why is there a cute guy singing in between the dancers? He's totally in the way.


Dance For Your Life:

Robert Roldan
Style: Contemporary
Song: "Fireflies" - Ron Pope
Grade: A-

Billy Bell
Does not dance.

Jose "Full Deck" Ruiz
Song: "It's Just Begun" - The Jimmy Castor Bunch
Grade: B+


The Cut:
The judges haven't made a decision so while a couple of the judges think Robert has stopped growing, and others think Jose has grown a lot (WHAAAA?) and Billy hasn't dances, they couldn't decide. So no one is being cut this week.

It had occurred to me that Billy sort of got a reprieve by skipping out this week, and secured him another week since he wasn't forced out by his injury like Alex and Ashley were, but I'm not going to be that cynical and assume that he wouldn't want to damage his body with any possible long term damage for the sake of a short term goal.

But 2 dancers will be cut next week to make up for it. So there you have it! Top 6 next week after this week's Top 5. Somehow that makes sense.

RE: the upcoming tour

I am PISSED off (and I mean PISSED) that Nigel didn't say that Jakob, Ellenore, or Legacy would be going on the tour. Besides Kathryn, they were my favorites from season 6 and it seems blasphemous and annoying that they aren't included.
I can only hope that they aren't going because they have more better, fabulous opportunities lined up.

That's awful that Legacy isn't on the tour.
Also you are totally giving Robert extra points just because of his looks and hotness LOL. The judges are no better though because of all the points they're giving to Jose just because of his smile.

Vance said...

Seriously, I'm annoyed Jakob, Legacy and Ellenore are not on the tour either. Though Jakob is on some tour that just finished Australia so maybe the others are committed to stuff already?
Let's hope.

And funny thing is Robert isn't my type. Kent's my type. (Not that I would throw Robert out of bed or anything... hehe).

But I just love the quirkiness Robert puts into his dance. He looks like a model but he's kind of a geeky nerd. I love that and it's seen in his dancing.
