“SYTYCD” Season 9: The Top 10 Perform
Last night on “So You Think You Can Dance” the Top 10 performed with their All-Star partners for the first time. We were thrilled to see so many of our favorite “SYTYCD” alums back as All-Stars—they really do kick the show up a notch. Joining Nigel and Mary at the judges’ table was the one and only Benjamin Millepied? (whaaat? We’re not complaining—just surprised). At the end of the show we found out America had voted Witney, Audrey, Chehon and George into the bottom. After dancing for their lives, Audrey (seriously?!) and George (again, what?!) were sent home. We’re sad to see them go, but thrilled we’ll get to see them on tour.
Here are our Top 5 moments from show:
1. Eliana and Alex.
Hands down my favorite routine of the night. Their technique, their steamy, subtly powerful performance, Stacy Tookey’s incredible choreo—I couldn’t have loved it more. Eliana is going far.
2. Lindsay and Jakob.
Bravo, Spencer Liff! I was a big fan of the shadow concept and super-technical Broadway jazz choreo. I’ve always been on team Jakob and he really pushed Lindsay and brought out the best in her. This is a routine I would pay money to watch on the Great White Way.
3. Tiffany and Brandon.
Talk about the perfect pairing for a super high-intensity routine! Doriana Sanchez knows how to do disco right. Over-the-top energy, eleven(!) lifts and cheese-ball expressions—I was in heaven.
4. Will and Kathryn.
Did the white boy rocked the Bollywood routine? Yes, yes he did. It was so hard to take Will serious when he was making those totally goofy faces, but I kind of loved it. He was SO excited to dance with super-sexy Kathryn and it made him completely lovable. Well done, Will.
5. Witney and Nick.
Wowee! That was hot! It was technical, the partnering was flawless and I really liked the choreo by Travis Wall. Witney definitely has staying power and Nick—well, we just love Nick. Obviously.
