It’s the final week before the season finale, and the top 8 dancers on So You Think You Can Dance brought their game faces. Once again, the dancers switched partners and performed two pieces each, along with one solo routine.
Kathryn and Ryan performed a Disco that put a smile on Adam Shankman’s face. Mary believed their chemistry and synchronization, but Nigel needed a little more. Their second performance, a Cha-Cha, received a standing ovation from the audience. Adam called it one of the best ballroom routines they’ve ever had on the show. Mary gave them two first class tickets on the Hot Tamale Train.
Mollee and Jakob performed a fast Viennese Waltz that stunned the judges. They called Jakob wonderful, and thought their partnership made Mollee bloom. Next they performed a fantastic Broadway routine. It showed their strength as dancers as well as performers.
Ellenore and Legacy performed a Travis Wall contemporary in which they were assassins hired to kill each other. With such dynamic choreography and such a strong and fearless performance, Nigel thought the routine could win Travis Wall an Emmy nomination. Ellenore and Legacy were aliens in their second routine, a Hip-Hop number by Tabitha and Napoleon. Unfortunately, the judges didn’t have any positive comments.
Ashleigh and Russell were supposed to perform Hip-Hop and Bollywood. Unfortunately, Ashleigh couldn’t dance this week due to a shoulder injury. But Russell’s Hip-Hop was hard-hitting, and his Bollywood routine was high-energy and wonderfully danced.
With so many amazing dancers left, it’s hard to say goodbye to another two. But this week, Elllenore, Mollee, Legacy and Ryan landed in the bottom four dancers. At one of the most shocking eliminations of the season, Mollee and Legacy were sent home. Tune in next week for the season 6 finale.
