Season 8 Top 14 Results Thoughts and Discussion

Here’s a space for my live thoughts on tonight’s results episode and also YOUR comments.

I loooved the Top 14 Bollywood routine by Nakul. It had so much passion and was one of the best Bollywood routines lately. It kinda reminded me of the routine Season 7 did on tour, actually. Anybody else reminded of that routine? I loved seeing Caitlynn and Rickey front and center at the end. I kept noticing Caitlynn and Ashley throughout.

Travis is adorable in a tux and even more so when he says with surprise and excitement, “I didn’t do a bad job yesterday!” Cute. No, Travis, you didn’t do a bad job at all. You’re welcome on the judging panel whenever you want, as far as I’m concerned. Only, I’m glad to hear you’re working with the dancers next week. Whooo hooo!

Maybe it’s mean-spirited of me, but I’m kinda glad Carmen Electra’s not on the panel tonight. I don’t think she added anything to last night’s show, personally.

And, a spoiler space for the first of the results…

SYTYCD Season 8 Podcast!

Editor’s Note: We want to welcome James G and Meghan to Pure SYTYCD! I’m looking forward to having their SYTYCD podcasts posted here for everyone to enjoy. I believe it will be a nice addition to the SYTYCD coverage we already provide. Let us know what you think of their SYTYCD podcasts in the comments.

Hello everyone!

I’m really excited to announce that the podcast that I co-host, Reflections on Pop Entertainment, is being added as new content for! These weekly podcasts covering season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance have been going since the Vegas Week episode and we’ve been trying to reach and build a wider audience. Being offered the chance to host our weekly SYTYCD season 8 coverage here is quite exciting, as I’ve been visiting this blog since season 5. I’m glad to be able to give back to the community!

To give you some background, I co-host the show with my fiancée Meghan. We’ve known each other since college where we participated in theatre together. Meghan and I are very analytical when it comes to the things we enjoy and we constantly discussed and analyzed shows with each other. After doing this for the past couple years, we decided that we should turn these discussions into a podcast. We both come from different academic backgrounds (Meghan has a Masters degree in American literature and I’m pursuing a Ph.D. in physics), which combined with our theatre background gives us what we hope is a unique perspective. So You Think You Can Dance is serving as the flagship series for the podcast and we’ve had a lot of fun already using the medium to form and share our ideas with a general audience.

The first podcast to be posted here, which will cover the Top 14 performance night and results show, should be recorded and published late Friday evening. Occasionally, if our schedules are hectic, then the show will show up on a Saturday. We hope that you’ll drop by to check out our shows!

If you want to check out the previous episodes of the podcast, I invite you to click the following links. They’ll take you to a summary of the episode and provide you with links that’ll let you download the show. I personally suggest checking out either the Top 20 Week, Take Two Eliminations or Top 16 Week episodes, as we hit our stride and found our voice in those shows.

I look forward to sharing the shows with you!

I Written By

Over the past few years my fiancée Meghan slowly brought me into the world of television, turning me into a full-fledged fan of both scripted and reality shows. So You Think You Can Dance turned into one of my favorite reality shows as it is a competition that takes itself seriously, providing the audience with artistic choreography and talented dancers. It's certainly not something I ever expected to get emotionally invested in, but here I am! Meghan and I are very analytic when it comes to the things we enjoy. We constantly discussed and analyzed shows with each other and after doing this for a couple years, we decided that we should turn these discussions into a podcast. We created Reflections on Pop Entertainment, a podcast that provides commentary and analysis of popular entertainment as found in visual mediums, particularly television and film. So You Think You Can Dance Season 8 is the first television series we're covering with weekly podcasts and has allowed us to find our voice as well as actively contribute to the fan community. We hope that you'll enjoy our installments as they are posted to Pure So You Think You Can Dance!
