Ashleigh & Jacob's Lyrical Hiphop -- I wait all season for these routines. And this -- was terrible. These two could not be worse at hiphop. I can't believe Nigel was so complimentary because this was so rough. It was NOT HARD HITTING AT ALL, and while yes it was passionate, that did not save the fact that they weren't even really TOGETHER when they were supposed to be.
Karen & Kevin's Broadway -- Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeak. They were both too small with all their movement and obviously really uncomfortable. Also, this song is supposed to be full of joy, because Charity is supposed to be overwhelmed with glee at her good fortune. And this wasn't. This was just flat and nervous. Bottom 3.
Noelle & Russell Foxtrot -- I loved this. Here was a couple doing something very unfamiliar to them and they not only looked comfortable, but they looked happy! They looked like they were having fun very genuinely. This was the first good number of the night for me.That the dance was so hard and one that usually screws people makes it all that much more impressive. A favorite of the evening for me, which is saying something.
Channing & Victor's Jazz -- Despite the use of an overwhelming props at the beginning, this was a great piece once they got out the stupid cage. What wonderful choreography! Tycee is really probably the most talented and creative choreographer left now that Mia Michaels is gone.
Legacy & Kathryn's Paso Doble -- Legacy's lack of training finally was showing through here but I still feel like all in all this was a very good routine. They really committed to their parts and worked their asses off. I enjoyed it way more than the hiphop piece at the top. This is a another number that can really kill a couple,so good on them. Also, I really like Legacy, so I am happy to see him doing so well.
Ellenore & Ryan's Contemporary -- Travis Wall is, without a doubt, a young choreographer to watch. What an amazing and powerful piece. Well made and well executed. I think he gets to that emotional place repeatedly that the show used to go with Mia Michaels.
Nathan & Molly's Pop-Jazz -- I really loved this piece. The unity of movement and the fun of it all was wonderful. Choreographically, one of my favorites of the night.
My Bottom Three: Ashleigh & Jacob, Karen & Kevin, and I DON'T KNOW! I honestly don't. Everyone else was very good this week. Kevin should go home this week, and I really don't know which girl. I'd hate to see Karen go, but kind of think she should. While I thought Nathan and Molly were good this week, I really don't think they are as good as some of the other couples.
BTW I write these before the judges weigh in or results are in. If there was some sort of SYTYCD pool, I'd be kicking butt.
