SYTYCD Canada Top 18 Results Show – Down to 16

Tonight we said good-bye to another pair of dancers on SYTYCD Canada.

The opening number
Last night Leah Miller was raving about the opening number tonight and I have to say, it was good, but she really over-sold it. There was tango, there was ribbon acrobatics in the air, it was very cool, but not jaw-dropping.

CTV describes it:

The choreographer of “Jersey Boys” and “Memphis,” Sergio Trujillo, created this incredibly dramatic Argentinean tango number that saw the dancers suspended and spinning from the red fabric.

For the music lovers it was from the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack:El Tango de Roxanne by Ewan McGregor , Jose Feliciano and Jacek Koman

Results
Geisha & Adam – no safe
Jordan & – safe
Shelaina & JP – safe
Francois & Yulia- not safe
Melissa & Joey – safe
Shane & Lindsey – safe
Denitsa & Matt – safe
Carlena & Kevin – safe
Teya & Boneless – not safe

I have to say, I was really unsure about my power rankings last night, but seems I was right on target – yay me!

Solo’s

Geisha – Unknown song
She did well, nothing mind-blowing, in fact, I felt it was pretty average and she may be the one to go!

Yulia – Tuttie Frutti – Little Richard
She did well. She always does in her style, but I feel like doing well in your genre will only take you so far. After Leah said she looked nice and she said, “I made it” (referring to her dress) I don’t know Yulia just rubs me the wrong way.

Teya – Party ROck Anthem – LMFAO
I actually liked her solo, it was old-school hip-hop, very cute, but not very complex. Super fun though!

Adam – Dancing Machine – Jackson 5 (I think, based on lyric search)
Lot’s of rolls and flips. Overall entertaining.

Francois – Uknown Song
Like Yulia, he is very good in his style, but comes across a bit cocky in coversation and attitude.

Boneless – Teach me how to Dougie – Cali Swag District
Like Teya, very entertaining. He did popping and some fun moves.

In the end
Teya and Boneless went home. Judges said it was unanimous for Teya but not for Boneless. Carlena lost it, like shaking violently as she cried, when they announced Teya. Leah Miller said he whiney sympathetic goodbye.

Music for the “look back” video montage:
Life After you – Daughtrey

Now we are down to 16 dancers who will perform next Monday, August 1, 2011.

SYTYCD Canada Top 18 Performance Show

Tonight the Top 18 dancers performed with new partners. The change up worked well, I think, and allowed dancers to shine and showcase their talents for viewers.

Judges:Jean-Marc, Tre Armstrong, Luther Brown, Mary Murphy, Nico Archambault.

Here is a summary with some thoughts about the evenings show. At the bottom I attempt to power rank, though I am not feeling entirely confident on my rankings this week so PLEASE feel free to comment.

Christian & Jordan
Paso Doble – Francis Lafreniere & Natalli Reznik
La Crimrosa Dominae (Firebender) – Serge Colbert / Jeffrey Fayman, Yoav Goren – Immediate Music


It was an end of the world theme and was very powerful. I love choreographers/past contestants Francis and Natalli. Jordan is my favourite and I was worried for her being in this routine, but they pulled it off amazingly. The Flip & Drag was stunning and the lift and split at the end – wow!

Matt & Denitsa
Contemporary – Sabrina Matthews
Can’t Breathe – Can't Breathe - Joy (Deluxe Edition) Fefe Dobson ft Orianthi


This was emotional and well done, but not as powerful as most of Sabrina’s routines. I really loved the spin lift and thought the pair were well matched. I usually fast forward through Jean-Marc’s comments but forgot to on this one and had to witness him talking about “Dreams” of Denitsa – he is so pervy… reminded me to remember to fast forward his comments the rest of the show!

Carlena & Kevin
Hip Hop – ShoTyme
Clear – Clear! - Clear! Kardinal Offishal


This was fast and hard hitting, but it was also out of sync and noticably so because of the hard hits. Carlena was obviously better as it is her genre, but Kevin did well overall. He had fake tattoos on his arms and it was a nice edgey look for him.

Lyndsy & Shane
Disco – Melissa Williams
Shake Your Groove Thing – Shake Your Groove Thing - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Peaches & Herb Peaches & Herb


This was amazing! I usually enjoy the fast disco routines, but this one was out of this world! I loved her look, especially her eye shadow, and the way they moved around the dance floor, was fun and precise and – just fantastic!

Adam & Geisha
Jazz – Blake McGrath
Who’s That Chick – Who's That Chick? (feat. Rihanna) [Single Version] - Who's That Chick? (feat. Rihanna) [Single Version] - Single David Guetta and Rihanna


This routine was fun! It didn’t look difficult, but the judges made a point to say it was. The costumes were bright and fun, neon and even glowing – they took the lights out and the black light colours of their clothes and body painted glowed.

Yulia & Francois
Mambo – Gustavo Vargas,
Mambo Gazon – Mambo Gozon - Mambo Birdland Tito Puente


The outfits were hot, the moves were sexy and overall this was a spicy routine. I did notice the tough lift they were practicing in rehearsal clip did not happen in the routine, which makes me feel like they couldn’t get it and had to make the routine “easier” I don’t know much about Mambo but this was pretty hot!

JP & Shelaina
Bollywood – Longinus Fernandes
Baawre (Lucky By Chance) – Baawre - Luck By Chance Loy Mendonsa & Shankar Mahadevan


This was a pretty amazing puppet style Bollywood routine. They were in sync, they had the look and did wonderfully. There was a slight wardrobe issue where Shelaina got caught up in her skirt, but she recovered well and kept smiling.

Boneless & Teya
Crump – Lil C
Get Krazy – Buckmouth


This was hard hitting, but not hard enough. Crump is rough and these guys were too soft. Not only that, but the song was kind of rough and tough to follow – it felt scattered.

Joey & Melissa
Contemporary – Mandy Moore
I Wanna Dance With Somebody – I Wanna Dance With Somebody - 14 Side Project


This was beautiful. The story was about being swept off your feet and Melissa was literally swept off her feet, floating through the air. It was emotional and absolutely peaceful! Love Mandy Moore, Love Joey and now I love Melissa.

Top 3
-Joey & Melissa
-Lindsey & Shane
-JP & Shelaina

Middle 3

So You Think You Can Dance Canada – Top 18 Results Show

Leah Miller opened the show stating over one million votes came in…. Is it just me or does it look like Leah has had some botox? I noticed this last week – her face seemed… tightly pulled…. and it’s not just because I don’t like her….

We had a great Top 18 Bollywood routine choreographed by Longinus Fernandes. It was colourful and hard hitting. I felt the women out performed the men overall, just a general observation.

Results

Natalie & Danny (who I placed 6th in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Melanie M & Cody (who I placed 2nd in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Amy & Vincent (who I placed 1st in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Anthony & Corynne (who I placed 8th and as Bottom 3) were NOT safe.

Nicholas & Jenna (who I placed 7th and as Bottom 3) were NOT safe.

Tara-Jean & Everett (who I placed 5th in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Kim & Emanuel (who I placed 3rd in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Jayme Rae & Daniel (who I placed 4th in my Power Rankings) were safe.

Melanie B & Austin (who I placed 9th and as Bottom 3) were NOT safe.

So I predicted 3/3 of the Bottom 3 couples (Not Bad for my first Power Ranking Post!)

Solo’s

Anthony – lot’s of hips and shaking

Nicholas – lot’s of tricks and high energy

Austin – solid performer if only I felt his attitude was as great as his dancing

Corynne – simple but pretty dance

Jenna Lynn – lot’s of kicks and power

Melanie B – passionate

Good – Bye

Anthony & Melanie B went home.

Overall

Good Results Show – Loved the Bollywood – Wasn’t surprised with the results.

Top 18 Rant – So You Think You Can Dance Canada

While you can go view my Power Rankings Here I had a few things I wanted to get out of my system ASAP – Please feel free to comment on your own opinions and if you agree or disagree with me.

First, what is wrong with Mary Murphy’s Back? She needed help walking out on stage and also standing up during judging…. it was nice to have her as a guest, even if she gets on my nerves pretty quickly…

I loved the lil “get to know you” part before each routine.

And have much to say about the wardrobe tonight.

I am so excited with what they are bringing to this season. With Last Week’s MJ Tribute and tomorrow night’s Longinus Fernandas (Oscar Winner for Slumdog Millionaire) I am excited to see what else they bring to the table this season.

What was up with judges telling Cody he was lucky to have Melanie as a partner? um – Cody kicks butt too – they are fantastic together. And Tre’s whole “Mah is not blah” was cheesey!!! She must have had writers prepare that for her… ha! And then telling Cody he had swagger but not enough ghetto? Of course not – he is too adorable to have gangsta – like Evan on SYTYCD didn’t have “nasty” sheesh!

I was impressed with Emanuel’s performance with a broken finger. Although he did appear to step RIGHT ON poor Kim…. I wasn’t a fan of Emanuel before because I thought he was kind of cocky with his skating background, but he is pretty awesome… Austin, however, is still pretty cocky.

When they showed Blake grunt and act evil during the rehersals for Amy & Vincent’s routine I was pretty excited… not gonna lie…. Blake is damn sexy.

Loved that Francis and Natali were assistant choreographers for Tony & Melanie’s Paso Doble danced by Anthony and Corynne. Love when past dancers return in any capacity but especially to help new dancers.

Luther raised a great point tonight on taking Hip Hop seriously. I don’t think Jenna was NOT taking it seriously, but I do think Luther is correct, it is a complex style of dance and needs attention.

I really really like the sponsored by Tylenol Relief bit at the end where they show “Back Stage Relief” with the dancers right after their routine… it’s clever and it’s neat to see their reactions right after performing.

that’s it for now…. discuss away…
