So You Think You Can Dance Season 7 :: Top 9

Jul 01, 2010

This week on So You Think You Can Dance, the top 9 dancers performed two routines: one with an all-star partner and one solo.

  • First up was Adechike with all-star Lauren. The judges said their hip-hop routine brought out Adechike’s natural swag and funk. The partners had great chemistry, making this routine Adechike’s best performance to date.

  • Next Ashley and Ade performed contemporary. The judges felt this was Ashley’s best performance, as she learned to dance beyond the steps.

  • Robert and Courtney landed a jazz routine, choreographed by the weird and wonderful Sonja. The judges said that Robert has the same creepy-good dance qualities as all-star Mark, making him perfect for Sonja’s choreography.

  • Melinda and Pasha hit the floor with salsa. Unfortunately, Mia delivered the worst possible insult—she regretted sending Cristina home last week instead of Melinda.

  • In Lauren and Neil’s performance, one of Lauren’s dress straps came loose. Talk about a costume malfunction! Overall the judges liked her performance.

  • Billy and Kathryn’s contemporary routine didn’t get the rave reviews Billy hoped for. The judges didn’t believe the partnership. They said he is an amazing soloist, but he needs to build better connections with his partners.

  • Jose and Anya performed a Samba choreographed by Demetri. Nigel said Jose joined the ooh-I’ve-lost-the-buttons-on-my-shirt club that Demetri was famous for during his season. The judges admitted that he’s not a great dancer, but his charm makes them overlook that.

  • Kent and Allison performed a jazz routine. The judges said his facial expressions are becoming fake. He’s playing to the audience when he should be focusing on his partner. But despite his “hungry jazz face,” Adam called him the most hirable dancer on the show.

  • Finally, Alex and Twitch blew everyone away with a male hip-hop duet. Alex, a ballet dancer, didn’t think he could master the rough and gruff hip-hop swag. But the quirky story behind the dance, combined with Alex’s unbelievable talent landed him a standing ovation[/kwlink]. The judges were in awe. Nigel said the performance was worthy of an Emmy.

On Thursday night, Billy, Robert and Melinda landed in the bottom three. And it was a no brainer who’d be sent home—Melinda.

Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon – Ek Baar Phir 23rd April 2014 The episode starts with Astha telling Shlok that she came to get a pen. Shlok looks in his laptop. Employee comes and asks him to come for the board meeting. Shlok leaves from his cabin. Shlok gives the presentation. Astha smiles looking at him. Shlok is surprised to see I love you Astha with Astha’s photo on the projector. He gets shocked and asks his employee to go. They smile. Astha tells Shlok that he confesses his feelings infront of everyone. Well done. Shlok gets angry at her. He says, those three words are not important for me. Astha says, it matters to me a lot. When you don’t know these three words then how will you know my feelings. Shlok says, it is waste to talk to you. Astha says, ok don’t tell me anything. She says sorry and leaves. Astha is walking on the road and thinks to take an auto. She says, he won’t confess his feelings. She is about to take an auto. Shlok comes and takes her in his car. Astha says, I don’t want to go with you. She gets sad thinking he will not say I love you. Shlok looks at her and stops the car. He gets down and Astha follows him. Astha asks him to come. Shlok shouts Astha I love you……………….. I love you so much……………………Astha gets surprised and happy. Shlok smiles. Saiyaave Ab Raasta Dikhade Tu…………………plays. Astha gets shy. Shlok asks, why are you feeling shy? Astha hugs him happily. Shlok too is happy and smiles. They close their eyes while the hug continues to be everlasting. They are standing on the middle of the road while the song Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon plays……….. Anjali is waiting for Astha. She wonders where they might be stuck. Sojal says, Astha don’t care about time. Anjali thinks to call Astha. Shlok is driving the car and holding Astha’s hand. Astha gets Anjali’s call. She asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, no. You won’t talk to anybody and switches off the phone. Anjali gets annoyed as she thinks Astha rejected her call. Shlok gets romantic and says I hold your hand for life. Astha gets shy again. Shlol says, you looks cute when you gets shy. Iss Pyaar Ko Plays………………………………………………… Shlok looks lovingly at her. Astha and Shlok come home. Shlok holds her again and gets romantic. Astha asks him to leave her hand. Shlok says, I didn’t hold your hand to leave you. What is your problem. When I am loving you, you are not liking it. He says, I am loving you infront of everyone. Astha says, not infront of everyone. Shlok asks her to give him a book about the dos and donts. They come inside. Anjali asks Astha where is your phone. Astha says it was lost. Anjali looks at her phone. Astha says, battery was low. Niranjan asks Anjali to do the rituals first. Anjali asks Astha to do the grah pravesh. Astha looks at Shlok. They enter together while Shlok holding her hand. Anjali makes her wear veil and asks her to be in veil until morning. She says, everyone can see you except Shlok. Shlok gets angry. Anjali asks her to change her saree and wear the given saree. She asks her to stay in the guest room tonight, to be away from Shlok. Astha says ok. She goes inside with Anjali. Astha gets ready and thinks what is this ritual. Today Shlok confessed his feeling and I have to be away from him. Shlok looks at Astha’s photo in his laptop. He recalls saying I love you Astha. He comes out of his room. Varad stops her. Shlok says, I want to see Astha. Varad says, Aayi said you can’t see her. Shlok says, I will see her anyhow. Varad says, all the best. Astha is in the guest room and is restless. She thinks to send voice message to Shlok. She messages him I miss you Shlok. Anjali comes and asks her to come for the Moon Puja. Shlok thinks how to see Astha’s one glimpse. Astha looks at moon in the water and do the puja with Anjali and Sojal. Servant comes and informs Anjali that Niranjan is calling her. Anjali goes. Astha is doing the puja and prays for Shlok’s long life. Shlok comes there and says I will see my moon. Astha covers her face under the veil and runs. Shlok runs after her. Astha veil gets removed. Shlok is standing behind her. Astha hugs him and says you can’t see my face. Shlok says, I came to meet you alone. I will see your face at any cost. Astha runs. Precap: Shlok sees Astha’s face in the water. He says I am happy. Astha smiles. Neither your ritual have break nor my wish.

Intentionally bad intended to be comical.  Me and my brother watched that and stopped about 30 minutes in. Ever watch Metal Tornado. We watched that all the way through but not Sharknado. It was worse than it intended to be.
