Well we are really getting down to the wire here on SYTYCD, huh? This week’s show featured the top 8, and each dancer performed a solo and a duet with an all-star.
OH! And Jesse Tyler Ferguson was the guest judge, and he was wearing a bow-tie. I loved everything that he had to say...he was a ding dong dorable :)
The first soloist was Tiffany. I liked it, but it wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever seen. I loved her costume and her turns though!! Tiffany danced later in the show with all-star Ade. They did a beautiful contemporary piece. All of the lifts and tricks were crazy! I loved this routine so much.
The first duet featured Whitney and all-star Twitch doing a hip hop routine. I really liked this dance!! Whitney reminded me of Chanel from MTV’s Fantasy Factory. She had some serious swaggggg. Ok, I’ll stop talking like I know anything about swag now. Good job Whitney and good job Twitch! Later, Whitney did a ballroom solo. I thought it was cute but nothing special. She looked amazing though!
Will was up next with a solo. I enjoyed his solo. I thought he had great musicality. Again, not the best thing I’ve ever seen though. Later in the show Will did a hip hop with all-star Lauren. I liked the concept of this dance, but the song/choreography were a little blah for me.

|Allison is a freak of nature, and I love it.|
Eliana and all-star Ryan did a quickstep next. I don’t know a lot about ballroom, but the dance looked good to me. What I did not enjoy was Eliana’s face. She always just seems kind of fake to me, especially that smile she had at the beginning. Eliana’s solo was pretty…I’m just not a fan :/
Chehon did a solo next, and it was beautiful. WOW. I felt like I was watching a little clip of a much larger piece. I wanted it to keep going! It was great. Chehon teamed up with all-star Anya to do a tango later in the show. I am normally not a huge tango fan, but I actually enjoyed this one! The music was so great, and Chehon and Anya were wonderful together. Beautiful!
Cyrus and all-star Melanie teamed up for the next duet with a Mandy Moore jazz dance. These two just looked like they were having so much fun! It was a really cute routine. Cyrus’ solo was just ridiculous. I could watch him dance all day long…I love it!!
Here are my quick facts for this week:
Favorite girl right now: Tiffany
Favorite boy right now: Cyrus
Boy I want to go home: COLE (I will die if he makes it to the final 4)
Best dance of the night: Cole and Allison’s contemporary (I was only watching Allison haha)
Worst routine of the night: the opening number…get that new choreographer outta here!
SYTYCD throwback of the week:
Lacey and Danny doing a Samba choreographed by SYTYCD alum, Pasha! As you all know, I am usually not a fan of ballroom. This dance, though...it is so great!!! I remember going to the tour for this season and waiting the entire time to see this number. And Lacey's shoes. I want them now!
Alright, the top 4 will be chosen next time...I'll see ya then!
