And Then there were 8….
From this point on it will be even more difficult to say good-bye but at least we know they will all be on SYTYCDC Tour this winter
The opening dance routine by Stacey Tookey was pretty incredible and [maybe I am biased] but Melanie, Cody & Jayme Rae really stood out for me in the routine. The pairing was awesomely choreographed, though the group was not in sync and some were obviously stronger than others.
Leah Miller was annoying as ever though I enjoyed watching her fumble her words a bit and I could see that the hair in her eyes was annoying her but she was trying not to have to move it out of the way, thus blocking her face for a millisecond on screen.
Blake McGrath, who I adore, was there again and I have to say, as much as I love his bod – I do not dig the open shirt…. it’s a bit sloppy looking…
Leah’s introduction of Jean-Marc as the French Canadian Fabio made me literally laugh out loud!
Anyways, enough with my rants… here is what happened.
Amy – not safe (as I predicted)
Kim – safe
Tara-Jean – safe
Melanie – not safe (I disagree!)
Jayme Rae safe
Everett – safe (good!)
Cody – not safe (shocked me a bit)
Vincent – safe
Austin – not safe (as I predicted)
Emanuel – safe (Canada loves him!)
Amy- was fine but I knew she would be going home.
Melanie- was [if its possible] even more passionate and gave me goosebumps!
Cody- was more of a jazzy hip hop that i really enjoyed. The kid has charisma!
Austin – was amazing! I sensed he’d go home after being in the bottom before, I really think he cockiness in auditions gave him a bad rep early and he just couldn’t get in the votes, but he was AMAZING! I loved that he changed it up and tried something new. It wasn’t so floaty free, airy fairy… it was hard and fun and it was a great send-off.
Amy & Austin went home, as I predicted
