So You Think You Can Dance Voting Results

I previously posted a poll asking for people to vote for their favorite dancers from the SYTYCD top 20. We’ve had almost 3000 votes on the poll and the results of the poll are quite interesting. Take a look at this chart of the voting results and below it I’ll add some commentary on the results.
So You Think You Can Dance Voting Results
First, I have to of course point out that this poll includes all of the SYTYCD season 5 top 20. Paris and Tony are already gone, but even that’s interesting. Paris was the least popular person and so I guess that’s why no one has come to the site complaining about Paris going home. Tony on the other hand was more popular than Paris, but still was near the bottom.

I’m not surprised at all that Asuka and Vitolio are near the bottom. After their first performance that makes a lot of sense. Ashley for some reason has never been popular. Maksim doesn’t have the looks he needs to be more popular (see Dmitry).

I should mention that the voting results are probably a little bit skewed in Jeanine Mason’s favor since I’ve had a lot of people coming to my site after searching for Jeanine Mason’s name. That said, you have to give Jeanine credit that a lot of people are searching for her name on Google. If they didn’t care about her, they wouldn’t be searching.

Anyone who thinks that Evan doesn’t have a great shot at winning this season is crazy. This poll shows that. Phillip seems to have a nice fan following thanks to his previous performances on the show.

I’m a little surprised that Caitlin Kinney actually got more votes than her partner Jason Glover. I would have thought for sure that he’d be more popular than Caitlin (even if I’m obviously bias to Caitlin myself). ¬†Although, from the looks of it Kayla Radomski is quite popular herself.

Another surprise for me is Pono Aweau sitting in the middle ground. I would have thought he’d be a bit more popular than that. Maybe it will just take some time for people to get to know him. Although with that said, I think he could potentially rub people the wrong way.

All in all, I feel pretty good about these poll results predicting which people will make it to the top 4. We might see one or two people shift a little, but the top slots do seem to be some of the best dancers and the most popular ones as well.

Vote for Bottom 3 Couples on SYTYCD 2009

I’ve already created a poll for people to vote for their favorite SYTYCD individual dancers (since at the end of the day it is about the individuals). However, even more important at this point is which of the top 20 couples are going to be placed into the bottom 3 and have to dance for their life tomorrow night? Place your vote now for the couples you think will be in the SYTYCD bottom 3 tomorrow night (yes, that means you’re voting for the worst couples from tonight’s SYTYCD top 20).

Pono Aweau in Music Video with Miss Hawaii USA Jonelle Layfield

I was searching around for some videos of Pono Aweau from before So You Think You Can Dance and I came across this little gem. Turns out Pono Aweau somehow did this little music video with Miss Hawaii USA Jonelle Layfield to the song “So Much Betta” Janet - Discipline - So Much Betta by Janet Pono doesn’t appear until a little while in, but it’s interesting to see him in this video:

Also, Pono Aweau’s dance group (and also Mark Kanemura’s group) performed at the Miss Hawaii 2008 pageant as well. You can’t see any faces, but it gives a little idea of where Pono comes from:

Fans of Pono Aweau will also enjoy this video of Pono dancing at the 24-VII Danceforce Studio to “Take Me Out” Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand

Pono Aweau Representing Hawaii on So You Think You Can Dance

I found this quick news article about Pono Aweau representing Hawaii in the top 20 of So You Think You Can Dance. I guess that means this is a SYTYCD spoiler huh? Oh well, it’s fun to get to know a little more about Pono Aweau

Aweau will fly to Las Vegas on Tuesday to make the next cut, and be one of the 20 finalists.

“It’s not even an option to not get this to not win it I’m going in for the kill it’s a battle it’s a war and I’m gonna come out the victor,” he said.

Donning less hair but full of determination, the 23-year-old dancer from Kailua already has plenty of local support.

He’s a member of the group 24-7 Dance Force, which gave him a send off on Sunday.

Judges were impressed enough to compare Aweau to Mark Kanemura, who was also from 24-7 Dance Force, and made it to the top six in last year’s show. He’s also been an inspiration for Aweau.

“Seeing him up close and seeing him do it you just don’t think that you can and then because we are so close he’s a really good friend of mine it made me think oh if he can do it oh I really could.”

Aweau says the dancing bug bit him when he was a fifth grader at Kamehameha Schools.

It’s always fun for me when people come from Hawaii since I lived there for a couple years. Just reading the news kind of takes me back. Ok, no one cares about me. Let’s get to the show tonight already!!
