This week on SYTYCD: I was so overjoyed about last week’s results, that I didn’t mind the forgettable dancing so much. Jump over to the recap and discuss with me.
Jose’s finally gone, but I’m surprised/bummed Billy went home. I know I predicted he would be next a couple of weeks back, but he had such a great night last week and his solo on elimination night was my absolute fave. Whatevs, this is just clearing the way for Lauren to hopefully win.
Group dance – Broadway by Tyce. For me, Lauren was the best and Adechike wasn’t so great. The routine itself wasn’t all that exciting, though, so that was the real let-down here.
Lauren & Pasha – A tango by Miriam Larici & Leonardo Barrionuevo. I have to say, I thought Lauren did an incredible job in this dance. I was surprised that she pulled off the sultry seductress thing.
AdéChiké & Lauren – A Sean Cheesman African jazz number. I thought AdéChiké did a really good job. There were some points where he didn’t completely loosen up, but compared to how he usually is, it was very loose. I don’t know why the judges hate him so much.
Robert & Anya – A Viennese waltz by Jonathan Roberts. Usually, these bore me, but I really liked it! He didn’t drop her or anything, which is always good, and I think he really pulled it off.
Kent & Courtney – Disco (!!) by Doriana Sanchez. First of all, how depressing is it that Kent doesn’t know diddly squat about my favorite thing EVER?! He… was okay. I didn’t think it was the worst of the season, but not his best.
Lauren & Ade – Jazz by Sean Cheesman. I loved this! IMO, this was the closest a competitor came to outdancing an all-star this season. Lauren was great in it.
AdéChiké & Kathryn – Contemporary by Desmond Richardson & Dwight Rohden. I don’t understand why everyone hates him so much. Is he perfect? Should he win? No. But he’s much better than they give him credit for, including in this dance.
Robert & Dominic – Hip hop by Tabitha & Napoleon. It was… weird. I have no idea why they think Robert was better than Dominic. Robert did a good job, but it wasn’t THAT good.
Kent & Neil – A contemporary piece by Travis. I’m not sure why Mia was crying. I watched it twice and was not moved to tears. That said, I really liked it and it was my favorite of the night.
This night was not all that exciting, especially considering how close we are to the end. I already forgot what most of these dances looked like, which is usually a bad sign. Anyhoo, I’m sure AdéChiké will go home tonight. What did you all think?
