SYTYCD Thoughts

I think I might make this a weekly thing...

As most of you know, I'm a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance. Because of camp, I didn't catch this week's episodes until tonight (thank Heavens for a friend's dvr...), but here are my thoughts:

Twitch and Kherington--I LOVE this couple, and I thought they did really well with the Hip Hop routine. I wasn't blown away by any one part of it, but I also wasn't left disappointed at all.

Gev and Courtney--Another couple I love, though I love Gev more than Courtney. Gev continues to impress me with his versatility each week. It's cute how utterly in love he is with Courtney, and their Rumba had a lot of energy and connection for me.

Chris and Comfort--I don't like either dancer in this partnership, so I'd be hard-pressed to enjoy any routine they did. Chris seems like a boringly heavy dancer, and Comfort is proof that hip hoppers shouldn't be on the show unless they have something else to offer. Their Jazz was choreographed by Tyce Diorio who is one of my favorite choreographers on the show and I didn't love the dance, which leads me to believe the problem lay with the dancers.

Will and Jessica--I love, love, love Will, and Jessica bugs me for some reason that I can't quite figure out. Their Disco was believable with Will looking like he jumped onto the stage straight from 1974. Very fun, nothing unpredictable though.

Matt and Kourtni--Perhaps my favorite over-all couple. I really enjoyed their Contemporary, though I'm sure I would have preferred a Mia Michaels routine. These two are such technically sound dancers, it's hard not to watch them in awe. LOVE THEM!

Thayne and Chelsea T.--These are two incredible dancers as well but are lacking the "something special" to bump them onto my favorites list. Their Quickstep didn't seem to go with the music well which prevented me from caring too much about the routine.

Mark and Chelsie H.--For a couple that is usually on my "Meh" list, I LOVED these two tonight. The Hip Hop routine was unbelievable and their performance was spectacular. I can only reiterate... I loved it!

Joshua and Katee--Joshua has been one of my favorites since tryouts. Katee...not so much. But their Samba was hot! I just love Joshua...

As for the results, I was thrilled to see Chris go. Not that I have anything against him, but he was the logical choice. But Chelsea T. over Comfort??? You have GOT to be kidding me. Comfort better be gone next week, that's all I have to say.

Watching this show makes me feel like I never had any talent as a dancer.
