Top 12 Power Rankings

Okay, I’m taking over for Emilie tonight, so this should be interesting. I had originally planned to watch the show with Kathryn’s familiy, friends, dance teachers (who were my dance teachers too). However, due to other things, I will have to wait till next week. Hopefully we will see Kathryn in the top 10. It’s going to be a fun packed show with 12 dances and I’m going to give my thoughts on all the couples and their perfomances. Then I will attempt to rank them some how.

Ellenore and Ryan: 1st dance-Lindy Hop: So happy to see this style back on the show. Adam was right it was a great way to start the show. To be honest I couldn’t think of a better couple to perform this dance, at least for me.
2nd dance-Broadway: Loved this, the performance was fabulous. The best dance for these two for me some far.

Kathryn and Legacy: 1st dance-Jazz: Had to to be one of my favorite Sonya dances since the Garden. Loved that this really showcased her technique and she was able to use Legacy’s b-boy skills. 2nd dance-Vienesse Waltz: I felt like the story that was being told was their story. For me the Vienesse Waltz is always beautiful and I love watching it.

Karen and Victor: 1st dance-Tango: This was good for me and for the first time they have dance together, not to shabby. 2nd dance-Hip Hop: I actually liked the hip hop better than the tango. They had moments they were out of sync but I like the lyrical hip hop, so I didn’t quite agree with the judges on this one.

Molle and Nathan: 1st dance-Hip Hop: It was a cute routine, perhaps too cute on Mollee’s part. Overall a good dance and the dance wouldn’t be complete without Nathan ripping his pants. 2nd dance- Can Can: I agree the best couple to perform this dance. Was anyone else surpised that it was Tyce behind the choreography? I was, mainly because I thought there would have be another new choreographer. Just fun dance and I still can’t get the music out of my head.

Noelle and Russell: 1st dance-Samba: For me this dance was okay, I didn’t expect the review they got would be as good as it was. Their performance was the best part of the routine for me. 2nd dance-Contemporary: Their best dance of the night. I’m with Nigel I am starting to forget that Russell is a street dancer. You know the kinda remind me of Katee and Joshua, Katee was in the footage.

Ashleigh and Jakob: 1st dance-Lyrical Jazz: Another great Soyna routine. What else can you say about Jakob other than flawless. Also Ashleigh has continued to keep up with him and the have a great partnership. 2nd dance-Cha Cha: A role reversal for these two. So happy that Ashleigh was able to dance her style and Jakob kept up with her as I expected him to.

Nathan and Mollee
Karen and Victor

So there you have it just my opinion of the night. It’s so hard to really tell who will be going home but for me I’m thinking it might be the end of the road for Victor and Karen. So vote for you favorite, I know I am time for me to put about fifty votes in for Kathryn and Legacy.

SYTYCD Top 12 Performance Thoughts

Hey SYTYCD fanatics. I’ll unfortunately be unable to blog this week and might even miss seeing the shows entirely! If I can watch the shows, I’ll probably post something, but it’ll be much later than usual. I’m counting on you to fill me in about the show and tell me everything you think in the comments, as it may be the only way I’ll get to experience the shows this week. :'( If you feel especially brave, maybe you’ll risk predicting the Top 10 in a power ranking type fashion. (Amanda? Here’s your chance!) John will post the music, though it may be later than usual as he’s in Las Vegas and not East Coast-ish like me. 🙂 Feel free to comment on the music as well and we’ll put up iTunes links as always. So sorry for this disruption and I hope you have fun discussing the Top 12 performance episode.
