Top 18: So You Think You Can Dance

June 21, 2008

Goodbye Marquis! Thayne Jasperson and Chelsea Traille performed a jazz routine choreographed by Mandy Moore, danced to “Untouched” by The Veronicas. I’m not sure I understand what happened here.  The two are great dancers, Mandy Moore an excellent choreographer, but the couple circled each other and barely even moved.  It was horrible, one of the worst dances on the shows history.  And their costumes? MEH!

Mark Kanemura and Chelsie Hightower dance next to the Argentine tango, which is a comfort zone for Chelsie being a ballroom dancer.  Their performance was stunning.  Next to Katee and Joshua, these two work  best as a couple.

 Jessica King and William Wingfield peform a hip hop routine, dancing to “Whatever U Like” by Nicole Scherzinger.  William is pure and simple pleasure to watch and unfortunately because of it I missed most of Jessica’s performance.  These two have not been paired well.  If she is good, each week she continues to look weaker next to him.  He needs a new partner.
Matt Dorame and Kourtni Lind have drawn the foxtrot and they danced to “A Foggy Day in London Town.”  They did a really nice job.  It’s always hard to tell the way the audience will vote to the waltz or the foxtrot unless it’s incredibly remarkable though.

 Courtney Galiano and Gev Manoukian are up next and they dance a contemporary piece choreographed by Mandy Moore.  This is a step up from Mandy’s earlier rountine and Gev really shows his growth and his ability to partner Courtney, who got critiqued harshly by Mia, but I found her performance lovely.  A big improvement from last week for these two.
Katee Shean and Joshua Allen dance a Tyce Diorio Broadway routine this week.  It was pure and simply amazing.  These two have an amazing chemistry and diversity.  They are simply nailing everything.  So far they are my favorite couple and certainly the best.

Goodbye Susie!Susie Garcia and Marquis Cunningham danced the salsa.  It was difficult to follow Katee and Joshua, but being Susies speciality I expected fireworks, and not only was it bland, technically it was horrible.  Marquis was all arms all over and Susie was going through the motions.  They were almost as bad as Chelsea and Chris.

Twitch Boss and Kherington Payne drew the Viennese waltz, choreographed by Jean-Marc Genereux.  It was a personal routine made for the eyes and enjoyment of his daughter that suffers from a motor dysfunction disease and between Kherington electric smile and their beautiful lines together it was a lovely routine to be remembered.

Comfort Fedoke and Chris Jarosz are subject to krumping and dance to “Come and Get Me” by Timbaland.  I had high expectations for Comfort and hoped Chris didn’t make a complete ass out of himself.  He did and she didn’t live up to them.  A major disappointment.

RESULTS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was no shocker that Comfort and Chris, Susie and Marquis, or Thayne and Chelsea were in the bottom three.  Each earned their place and should have danced for their life.  I feel America got it right for once. 

Comfort’s solo was jaw dropping.  It was seriously amazing, while Susie was solid and Chelsea’s on the weak side.  Nonetheless, Chelsea being the stronger dancer was kept and Susie sent home.  I agree. 

Marquis, Thayne, and Chris all being contemporary dancers made the mens performances intense.  All but Chris.  Thayne’s was lovely, but nothing to speak of, and Marquis’s amazing.  Chris’s was dreadful and bland.  Yet he and Thayne stayed while Marquis was sent home.  Disagree with this one judges.

It was a good night though.  I can’t wait for next week!  For your enjoyment here’s Comforts Solo!
