And then there were 7 (couples)

Didn't get a chance to post about SYTYCD last night, but here's a very quick rundown:

Group dance - Song: 'The Incredits" from The Incredibles soundtrack.  Choreographed by Michael Rooney.  I gotta say...this might be the first time I didn't think a group dance was great.  They were out of sync, I didn't care for the music, and it seemed to go on too long. 

Bottom three couplesAshley & Chris, Miranda & Robert, and Caitlynn & Mitchell.

Guest performance #1 from AXIS, which is a dance company that features performers with and without disabilities.  In the performance, the male dancer was in a wheelchair.  It was such a beautiful and moving performance.  Song:  "Partita for Violin Solo No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004: V. Ciaccona" performed by Janine Jansen. 

Solo performances:
  • Ashley, "For You" by David Ryan Harris.  Gorgeous routine.
  • Chris, "You're Gonna Make It" KJ-52 feat. Blanca Reyes.  Really fantastic--it was like a hip-hop contemporary.
  • Miranda, "Unthinkable" by Maria Zourdoudis.  Her leg extensions are amazing..it's like her legs are 10 feet long.
  • Robert, "I Don't Need It" by Jamie Foxx.  Nice...broke out a little Michael Jackson in the middle.
  • Caitlynn, "It Doesn't Hurt (Live version) by Katie Thompson.
  • Mitchell, "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele.  I could watch him dance forever...beautiful.
Wow...I don't know how the judges will make the decision about the girls...theyr'e all so beautiful and talented.  As for the guys...based on the solos tonight, I think it'll be Robert going home.

Nigel said that Kristin Chenoweth said, "I love her. I love him. I love her..." to all six of the dancers.  It's tough.  I don't envy them.

Guest performance #2  is from Eric Luna and Georgia Ambarian, who are dancers & choreographers, as well the current U. S. and World Theatrical Dancing Champions.  Song: "Calypso" fro the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (Soundtrack).  All I can say is WOW.  That was amazing.  You just have to see it for yourself.

Miranda and Robert go home.  Nigel said the decision about Miranda was not unanimous, and although she's the one who's grown the most in the competition, she's going home.  For Robert he said that even though Robert has a great personality, we keep finding him in the bottom three, and this will be the last time in the bottom three because he's going home.   And Robert gave one last "Woooo!"  He's a sweetie.  Both were so gracious in expressing their feelings about the competition.

On to next week....
