Power Rankings for SYTYCD Canada Top 20

Last week I failed at my rankings, then again, most agree Canada failed at voting, but I digress. Here are my thoughts based on tonight’s performances.

Please feel free to comment if you agree, disagree or have anything to add or say.

********** TOP 3 **********

1. Amanda & Denys – Contemporary – Sabrina Matthews
Perfect – Hedley
1-877-977-4602

I liked the story, A girl finds out she is terminaly ill, and her boyfriend feels bad he cant help her. Sabrina Matthews created a master piece. I got goosebmps and that usually equals a Top 3 rankings. There was beautiful movement and it was emotionally moving. I loved it! Well danced!

2. Jeff & Charlene – Contemporary – Stacey Tookey
Breathing – Alisa Turner
1-877-977-4606

Based on a real story from a letter from a depressed person who used her daughter to pull through. Stacey is amazing. Goosebumps and you know what that means.. Top 3 ranking… It was in their genre so it had to be wonderful. Very beautiful!

3. Kloe & Jonathan – Jazz – Blake McGrath
California Gurls – Katy Perry ft Snoop Dogg
1-877-977-4610

Very fun theme, sexy and hot… perfect song choice. Thank goodness she took off those heels – yikes! Blake’s choreo is always hot and quite precise. This had some great moments but was mostly just fun to watch. I think people will vote for it because of that reason. I had no idea Kloe had a bad ankle she pulled through that routine without me noticing which is why I put this 3rd and not 4th.

********** MIDDLE **********

4. Nathalie & Mackenzie – Hip Hop – Sho-Tyme
All I do is Win – DJ Khaled ft T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Rick Ross
1-877-977-4604

I love hip hop overall and these two did a good job, Mackenzie is pretty to look at so that helps. There were some very fast moments that could have been a little but more precise but I enjoyed watching it. I was stuck between my top 3 & 4 to be honest. Kloe dancing through a bad ankle is what put them above this routine, barely.

5. Sebastian & Danielle – Theatre – Sean Cheesman
No Good Deed – Idina Menzel – Wicked Soundtrack
1-877-977-4608

Nice twists and lifts. It was very interesting to watch. I enjoyed it a lot. I think people will vote for them.

6. Jesse & Julia – Samba – Tony Meredith & Melanie LaPatin
Cuban Pete – isweat music
1-877-977-4607

Julia’s favourite of her 5 areas of dance I expected her to nail it and she did. Jesse was a fast learner it seemed, he had me convinced, holy hips! The wardrobe change by her was hot, although her dress started to fall apart she danced through it.

7. Shavar & Janick – Krump – Lil C
Whatever – Buckmouth
1-877-977-4609

Funky outfits, he had a tin can on his junk (as Mia pointed out) Shavar was harder hitting than she was but that wasn’t a surprise, neither hit hard enough for krump though. Still, It was “bucc”. But they were out of synch almost the entire time which kind of made it look a mess for me. Loved Lil C calling himself a Warriogropher.

********** BOTTOM 3 **********

8. Jera & Kirsten – Paso Doble – Francis LeFreniere & Natalli Reznik
Iron Might / Mind Control – Position Music
1-877-977-4603

Dramatic movements, lights outfits, the end spin was amazing but the drop was a bit hard at the end. It was good. Not great. I love these two dancers so I hate putting them in the bottom 3 but based on tonight that is where they fall… I don’t see them going home though.

9. Claudia & Yonni – Foxtrot – Danny Quillam
Telephone – Lady Gaga ft Beyonce
1-877-977-4605

Modern music with a not-so-modern dance style, hot outfits, felt a bit slow for the music until the steps around the stage. Mixed results from the judges. I wasn’t feeling it personally but can see the artistic, uniqueness about it. A juxtaposition between tradition and modern… very interesting.

10. Bree & Edgar – Dancehall – Jaeblaze
Clarks (feat Popcaan and Gaza Slim) – Vybz Kartel
1-877-977-4601

Smooth, he is harder hitting than she (hip hop background, vs contemporary) I wasn’t a fan overall. There were moments of good but also moments of random nothing. Luther said it was good dancehall, what do I know about it? Just average for me.

I really have a tough time ranking these dancers… Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Top 10 Females SYTYCD Canada Season 3

Since some people can’t get SYTYCD Canada I thought I would share the dancers promo shot and video clip for everyone. I have included a poll at the end so you can use what you’ve seen here and on the show (if you are able to watch it) and choose your favourite from the Top 20 (10 females and I will do a 10 males post also)

Amanda Cleghorn, 19, Mississauga, Ont.

 

Bree Wasylenko, 22, Toronto

I can’t find her audition from this year, but this is her last year…

 

Charlene Hart, 22, Abbotsford, B.C.

Claudia Primeau, 26, Montreal

Danielle Gardner, 21, Surrey, B.C.

Janick Arseneau, 20, Bathurst, N.B.

I can’t find Janick’s audition either, but I did find this cute video montage of her as a kid and now dancing, dancing, dancing…

Julia Harnett, 27, Calgary

Kirsten Wicklun, 20, Vancouver

Kloé Schultz, 20, North Bay, Ont.

Again this is last year’s audition.

Top 22 Results Show SYTYCD Canada

I realize last night in my Power Rankings I didn’t predict who would go home… I will try to do that for next week in addition to the actual rankings.

Here is a Summary of Tonight’s Results Show:

Opening Number:
Zombie – “Fela” Original Broadway Cast
Bill T Jones choreographed

First 3 Couples out:
Janick & Shavar
Nathalie & Mackenzie
Kirsten & Jera
All 3 are safe.

Next 2 couples out:
Hanni ( & TJ ) – Dancing for his life
Charlene & Jeff – SAFE

Personally this shocked me, since I rated Hanni & TJ’s dance as my favourite of the night.

The rest of the couples came out:
Amanda & Denys – SAFE
Danielle & Sebastian – SAFE
Bree & Edgar – Dancing for their lives
Claudia & Yonni – SAFE
Julia & Jesse – Dancing for their lives
Jonathan & Kloe – SAFE

Solo’s – Dancing for their life:
Males:
Hanni – Strange padding outfit but strong solo.
Edgar – Smooth moves, nice swag but not too many tricks or fancy moves.
Jesse – The best solo of the three in my opinion. Sharp moves, seemed very precise and passionate.

Females:
Bree – She seemed frantic at times but overall beautiful mocement.
Julia – I really loved her solo, it was an unusal song choice (country) for ball room but she worked it with lot’s of kicks and spins. It was my favourite of the two solo’s.

Of course, there was no third female solo because Shelaina was out injured.

Sent home:
-Hanni – not unanimous
-Shelaina – injury related.

Thoughts:

Doctors decided she can not dance due to her injury, therefore she was sent home. Seems the SYTYCD USA Injury Curse has struck Canada too, I hope it ends here. I also hope Shelaina returns… after last year’s attitude I was glad she smartened up this season and am truly sad she has to leave on these terms.

I am sad that my #1 power ranking went home… Hanni. I honestly feel like part of this early voting and decision making is related to screen time and how well viewers get to know the dancers before the performances.

And now we are down to Top 20…

Hopefully my Power Ranking Predictions improve…. or some of you can help me out in the comments section next time?

So You Think You Can Dance Canada Top 20 Reveal

I’ve been away for a few days and between AJ, Emilie and me we will get caught up on the music posts ASAP.

Now, onto tonight’s Top 20 Reveal.

The first thing you need to know is that it became a TOP 22!!! 11 males and 11 females will be on the show.

Here is who made it:

Males:
Jesse Weafer, 26, Aurora, Ont.
Shavar Blackwood, 25, Toronto
Mackenzie Green, 20, Regina
Yonni Fournier, 27, Montreal
Jeff Mortensen, 22, Edmonton, Alb
Denys Drozdyuk, 25, Toronto, Ont
Hani Abaza, 26, Ottawa, Ont
Jera Wolfe, 19, Inverness, N.S.
Edgar Gilbert – Reyes, 22, Calgary, Alb
Sebastian Mersch, 21, Toronto, Ont
Jonathan Arsenault, 26, Kitchener, Ont.

Females:
Amanda Cleghorn, 19, Mississauga, Ont
Kirsten Wicklun, 20, Vancouver, BC
Shelaina Anderson, 19, Edmonton, Alb
Charlene Hart, 22, Abbotsford, BC
Julia Harnett, 27, Calgary, Alb
Janick Arseneau, 20, Bathurst, N.B.
Claudia Primeau, 26, Montreal Que
Danielle Gardner, 21, Surrey, BC
Nathalie Heath, 23, Surrey, B.C.
Kloé Schultz, 20, North Bay, Ont.
Bree Wasyenko, 22, Toronto, Ontario

Also:
Justin (Tap) will perform a solo in finale

What do you think?

After choosing the top 10 males they brought Jonathan out to let him know he would be part of the top 22.
During the females they brought out the last 3 girls, who didn’t know about the top 22 and that they all made it.

Some of the “yes” and “no” comments were so cruel, more than usual… “YOu just aren’t top 20 material I am sorry…. you are TOP 10”

Those poor dancers, it’s a wonder they don’t have heart attacks on the spot!!!

Anyways, that’s your TOP 22!!

CTV has Top 22 photo shoot album up here.
