SYTYCD4 - The Gr8 Deb8

So You Think You Can Dance Canada - Season 4 - Top 10 Results, Top 8 Performances - Eps. 419-420
Judges (Top 10): Jean-Marc Généreux, Tré Armstrong, Stacey Tookey, Mary Murphy
Judges (Top 8): Jean-Marc Généreux, Tré Armstrong, Blake McGrath, Mary Murphy

I got to go to another live taping for the performance show again, and as always, the dancers were hot, and freaking amazing.

And while I think the Top 10 results (below) got it right, now that it's down to Top 8, I have no idea who should be cut. I could see any of them winning really.
Seriously, I don't know who to vote for because I would call for them all (negating all my votes). Who is everyone else voting for?


Top 10 Results

Top 10 Group Dance
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Sabrina Matthews
Song: "Heavy in Your Arms" - Florence + the Machine



Should Go Home/Will go Home: François and Yuliya

Bottom 6 Dancers:
Denitsa
Yuliya
Melissa
Adam
Christian
François




And François and Yuliya were cut. Great dancers, but at this point, it leaves a very strong Top 8.

Top 8 - Performances

Jordan Clark and Adam LoPapa
Style: Hip-Hop
Choreographed by: Luther Brown
Song: "Say It With Me - Chris Brown
Grade - Dance: A
Grade - Girl(Live/TV) : A+/
Grade - Boy (Live/TV): A/

Jordan gets Hip-Hop and knocks it out of the park. Are we really surprised at this point? I think I realized that Jordan HAS to perfect her dance moves and punch up everything just to get her huge red mane flowing with her dance. Her hair looks spectacular with every movement but I think to keep it flowing (and out of her face at times), she moves her body with just that extra effort... does that make any sense?

Anyways, AMAZING.

Adam? Awesome. Always a joy to watch. Sexy, confident, with just enough humbleness to make it all work, and a body that rocks the moves with beautiful effort.

Here's the video of Jordan and Adam's Hip-Hop:




Denitsa Ikonomova and Christian Millette
Style: Samba
Choreographed by: Gustavo Vargas
Song: "Tambourine - Eve
Grade - Dance: A
Grade - Girl (Live/TV): A+/
Grade - Boy (Live/TV): A+/

I forgot these two are dance partners in real life. Not because they have no chemistry together (they TOTALLY do), but because they've been so great with other dance partners, in various styles, that I've totally forgotten that they came in to this competition together as a pair.

Yet this dance reminds of why both are still in the Top 8 and what a partnership they have together. There's such a relaxed freeing vibe between the two, that they took Gustavo's part Samba and part Hip-Hop routine and crushed it.

Top notch.

Here's the video of Denitsa and Christian's Samba:



Lindsay Leuschner and Shane Simpson
Style: Contemporary
Choreographed by: Stacey Tookey
Song: "Uninvited - Alanis Morissette
Grade - Dance (Live/TV): B+/
Grade - Girl (Live/TV): A/
Grade - Boy (Live/TV): A/

Lindsay and Shane to me, are the quiet professionals of the group. I feel I really don't know who they are still, but they're always good, never lets us down, and are always consistently strong partners.

Pairing them up together gives us more professionalism, even when it's not my favorite Stacey Tookey dance.

Here's the video of Lindsay and Shane's Contemporary:



Melissa Mitro and Matt Marr
Style: Jazz
Choreographed by: Melissa Williams
Song: "Nobody's Perfect" - Jessie J
Grade - Dance: A
Grade - Girl (Live/TV): A+/
Grade - Boy (Live/TV): A+/

I mean SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY. Melissa Mitro. What the? The audience collectively gasped when she leaped onto the chair and jumped on Matt's back. And she danced the whole routine with that kind of controlled abandon.

And Matt, the lovely ever smiley Matt. Who like Adam, has always been great but has gotten even better through the competition and owning up to the levels of the best dancers in this competition.

Here's the video of Melissa and Matt's Jazz:



Top 8 Group Dance
Style: Jive
Choreographed by: Danny Arbour
Song: "" -
So much fun. SO MUCH FUN. Though I did notice Shane and Matt fell off a step at some point, and uh... that's about it? My eyes were zig-zagging around to every dancer who just looked like they were having a blast, and worked brilliantly as a Top 8 team.

The Final Roundup:

Should Go Home: Uh, no one.
My Predictions:
Bottom 4 Dancers
Adam
Denitsa
Shane
Lindsay

Will Go Home: Shane and Lindsay? Oh gawd, I don't even want to think about Tuesday.

This is how I rank all the dancers overall (based on dancing and personality): (last week's standings in parenthesis, ties listed in alphabetical order)
Overall Ranking:
1 (tie). Jordan (1)
1 (tie). Melissa (1)
3 (tie). Adam (3)
3 (tie). Christian (3)
3 (tie). Denitsa (3)
3 (tie). Lindsay (3)
3 (tie). Matt (3)
3 (tie). Shane (3)
And I really don't think this list is a cop-out. I really would rank them in a giant tie.
