SYTYCD S7 Top 9 Results Thoughts

Is it just me, or was that opening group number very sedate, all things considered? And by sedate, I mean… boring. Nothing really popped out at me. Sad to say.

I’m glad, glad, glad Ashley and Alex are safe and that they didn’t even really try to play that they were in danger.

Annoyed that Adechike is safe since I think he still deserves Bottom 3, despite last night’s nominal improvement. They probably had to scare Kent a bit…let’s see how he does next week.

When Lauren was sent to safety, I had a feeling both Billy and Robert were gonna be in the Bottom 3, that they were gonna play off the Billy or Robert thing they did going into the Top 10. When they were both in the Bottom 3, I was a little afraid for Robert, but I mostly just felt even more certain that Melinda was going home.

When it was between Melinda and Jose, I had a wild stray thought that Jose would be in the Bottom and we’d have a freaky all-male Bottom 3 this early in the season. Which would probably have meant Robert going home, if that had happened. But, then it was Melinda and I was pretty sure again that she was going home.

I looooove that they’re going to have the All-Stars re-dance some of their iconic routines. It’s like they heard all our talk and they listened to us. Makes me start thinking about what other routines we might see in the coming weeks.

So even though this results episode didn’t feel like it was much about the Season 7 contestants, I had a lot of dancing to enjoy anyway. Namely, the All-Stars. The Viva ELVIS spectacular was pretty awesome, and I enjoyed that Chris and Marquis got to dance again on the SYTYCD stage.

The solos went by in a blink. I enjoyed both Billy’s and Robert’s. And I was glad that Melinda danced acapella. I thought it was a bit fraudlent of Adam to pretend she even had a chance by offering advice on what she had to do to stay. That made me a bit sad.

I enjoyed the Ne-Yo performance a lot, too. It would’ve been cool if he danced with the All-Stars like last week’s performance with Debi Nova. But his dancers were a’right. πŸ™‚

So, I’m not surprised that the judges sent Melinda home. Or that the decision was unanimous. I thought it was a bit rude to tell Melinda by sending the other two to safety (they’ve done that before, though). They could’ve actually addressed her first, you know.

We’ve got to stop losing girls. We’ve only got 2 left and I really like both of them. So that’s it. Everyone, start voting for them, okay? I think we could thin out the herd of guys for a bit before we let either Ashley or Lauren be in danger again – k?
