So You Think You Can Dance :: Top 8 Recap

This week, So You Think You Can Dance celebrated their 99th and 100th episodes with guest judge Ellen Degeneres and guest performer Katie Holmes. The Top 8 danced two performances as couples and one solo performance for America’s votes.


Performances

  • Evan and Jeanette opened the show with a Jazz routine. Mia Michaels called Jeanette her favorite dancer of the season. The judges thought their synchronization and lifts were spot on. Later they performed a slow Rumba. The judges had a few critiques for Evan, but Jeanette’s sensual style put her on Mary’s Hot Tamale Train.

  • Brandon and Jeanine fell flat with an incredibly slow and demanding Waltz. But they more than made up for it with their strong, powerful, passionate and hard-hitting Pop-Jazz routine.

  • Melissa and Ade reunited this week for the Cha-Cha and a Contemporary routine. The judges were divided about their Cha-Cha. Nigel thought it was sexy, whereas Mary and Mia were disappointed, particularly with Ade. But their powerful and emotional Contemporary piece put them at the top of the pack. Tyse Diorio choreographed the piece to show the struggles of breast cancer. Melissa and Ade danced it with so much passion, they brought all the judges to tears.

  • Jason and Kayla first performed an effortless Broadway routine. Mia was in awe of Kayla, saying that she had the potential to take Broadway by storm. Second they danced the most entertaining Hip-Hop routine of the season. In this somewhat Michael Jackson-inspired piece, Jason (a zombie) took Kayla as his zombie mistress.

  • Elimination

    This week’s shocking elimination left judge Nigel Lithgow a bit disgruntled. Jeanette (a.k.a Miss Miami Spice), who was both his and Mia’s favorite dancer this season, was eliminated along with Jason. They each landed in the bottom two with other front-runners in the competition, Kayla and Brandon.
