A great way to start the finale with the Top 10 and the All Stars. Love the Astrology theme of the dance.
A huge congratulations to Travis Wall on his Emmy win. How special that Cat was able to present that to him. Also, congrats to Derek and Julianne Hough and Tessandra for their Emmy win as well.
Jason’s Pick: Vigil and Joshua: The energy alone in this dance makes me want to get up and move. It was better this time around when it came to timing, which is normal when the pressure is off.
Paula’s Pick: Edson and Megz: Great pick, this was a standout routine for these two. Looking forward to seeing this one on the tour.
Paula’s Pick 2: Jaja and Ricky: Paula is like me…it’s hard to pick just one favorite. I love the actress that Jaja is…so expressive. Ricky kills me (in a good way) with those leg extensions…so good.
Cat’s Pick: Team Street: If you didn’t notice this was just the replay…or else Jaja had one heck of a quick change. I enjoy watching the strength of this team.
Twitch’s Pick: Gaby and Neptune: I don’t know if I can say that I am surprised that Twitch picked a stage routine for his favorite. This was a beautiful routine by Stacey Tookey and a great moment for Neptune. Beautifully danced by both dancers.
Nigel’s Pick: Lil’ Pheonix and Cyrus: So glad that Nigel shared this cute routine from the Dizzy Feet Gala. Love getting to see talented kids dance.
Hailee’s Pick: Jazz with Robert: I can’t blame her for picking this as her favorite dance of the season. I agree…who would want to dance with Robert and even get the chance to kiss him.
Travis’s Pick: Gaby and Joshua: He picks a street routine. This was one of many breakout moments for Gaby. It’s been so great to see Josh this season.
Jason’s Pick 2: Travis’s Ghost Light routine: This was one of my favorite group routines too.
Virgil’s Pick: Robot routine with Hailee: Still a fun routine that showed of their characters just as much as their dance skills.
Nigel’s Pick 2: Jim and Alex: Requested by the audience and I’m so glad that they listened. Absolutely beautiful routine that will no doubt earn Travis another Emmy nomination.
Results: Top Team Stage is Gaby
Nigel’s Pick 3: Jaja and Alex: Agree with everything Nigel had to say about this routine.
Travis Wall and Jenna Dewan-Tatum: Again I am happy that they shared this number from the Dizzy Feet Gala. So good to see Jenna dance again and hopefully there might be another chance to see her dance with her husband Channing.
Results: Top Team Street is Jaja
Jaja’s Pick: Hip Hop with Jim: This routine reminds me why I love Chris Scott. Such a great dance for both Jim and Jaja.
Gaby’s Pick: Contemporary with Robert: This was hands down the best routine of the entire season, beautiful choreography by Mandy Moore.
Before we get to the winner, I just want to say that both of these girls have been my favorites from the beginning and the both could easily win.
The Winner is…Gaby Diaz!
Will there be a season 13? I don’t know yet but I’ll will post as soon as it’s announced.
