Last Week’s Power Rankings were fairly accurate. I called the bottom 3. It is hard to predict exactly who will go home until you see their solo’s, however, as we get to know each dancer I think we can also guess how their solo’s will be.
So this week for the So you think you can dance canada top 16 I will do my power rankings and see if I can get it right.
I am not a dancing expert but I enjoy watching and will base my Power Rankings on what I saw, heard and felt about each couple’s routine.
1. Jayme Rae & Daniel
Hip Hop with Luther
“Pucker Up” – Ciara
This was my favourite routine of the night. Luther’s choreo to the song, combined with Jayme Rae and Daniel’s performance… it was just awesome for me. Amazing dancing, creative floor work, sexy moves and I had goosebumps. What more does it take to stay on top?
2. Amy & Vincent
Hip Hop with Flii Stylez
“Boom Boom Pow” – Black Eyed Peas
Maybe I just favour hip hop and urban dance but this routine rocked it. I thought he hit harder than she did but together they entertained me.
3. Corynne & Austin
Contemporary with Stacey Tookey
“Never Say Never” – The Fray
I am not usually an Austin fan, though I do like Corynne, but this routine was great. It was pretty and it gave me goosebumps. Stacey Tookey is amazing, Corynne and Austin danced it wonderfully and even though I am not an Austin fan, I have to say he had me tonight.
4. Kim & Emanuel
Jazz Funk with Blake McGrath
“Love, Sex, Magic” – Justin Timberlake/Ciara
This was hot, sexy, cool. Blake is a god. I felt they danced it a little slow and would hav elike dto see it a little harder but the licking, biting, stripping was all sexy. Usually I’d put Blake’s routines higher, but I felt Emanuel and Kim could have done better, not that they did badly, I jsut prefered a few other routines.
5. Melanie & Cody
Mambo with Gustavo Vargas
“Suena Ahora” – Michi Sarmiento
I love Melanie and Cody. I’d always put them in my Top 3…. but this week I was disappointed with the routine. Maybe because it’s a style I am less familiar with, but it felt a little bit confusing and while it was cute and fun, it seemed too laid back to me.
——————- BOTTOM 3 PREDICTIONS ——————-
6. Tara-Jean & Everett
Quick Step with Pierre Allaire
“Chicago Overture” – Hotrolls Ragtime Band
I hate to put TJ and Everett in Bottom 3 because I am a huge fan of them both, but it just didn’t do it for me tonight. It felt Cheesey and though I enjoyed the lifts and flips and spins, I wasn’t enjoying it as much as I wanted to. I predict they will make bottom 3 but will move on after amazing solo’s (I hope!)
7. Nicholas & Jenna Lynn
Hustle with Benji Schwimmer
“Canned Heat” – Jamiroquai
I love Benji and I was so glad to see him choreo. Loved his difficult moves and high energy. I also love the song and the energy it emotes but …. I don’t think they will get the votes to stay out of the Bottom 3 again. We will see. If I am right and they are Bottom 3 I think Jenna will go home. She does great passionate solo’s but how many times can you do a solo before it just gets old?
8. Natalie & Danny
Rhumba with Gustavo Vargas
“Historia de un amor” – Perez Prado
This routine fell short for me. I know it isn’t the style they know and I realize it was not danced badly, but it’s Top 16 and even if everyone was great they’d still have to cut someone. I think these two will make Bottom 3 and perhaps Danny will go home due ot his “lack of confidence”
I have no clue at this point… but those are my predictions and Power Rankings. If my Bottom 3 are right I would predict Jenna Lynn and Danny going home – but I could be way off even on my Bottom 3 Couples…
What do you think?
