So You Think You Can Dance: Season 9, Episode 8 :: Top 20 Perform Part 2

Jul 19, 2012

This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 9, Episode 8), the Top 20 dancers performed again, but at the end of the show, 2 guys and 2 girls were eliminated. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 20 Perform Part 2,” which aired on July 18, 2012, to discover what you missed.

The Performances

Lindsay and Cole kicked off the night with a Christopher Scott routine in which Lindsay was a sexy dentist. Nigel thought the routine was fun and he loved the characterization, although he felt Lindsay was a little too immature. She should have played more to Cole than to the audience.

Amelia and Will hit another homerun with their Sonya contemporary routine this week. Mary felt like they really brought the essence of the dance to life. Amelia was so far off her balance point for a lot of the routine and she put so much trust in Will.

Amber and Nick performed a sexy tango which had the judges showering Amber with praise. Guest judge Adam Shankman called her hot and spectacular, while shamelessly promoting his new film Step Up Revolution. He felt she was uninhibited and she really brought her character to life.

Audrey and Matthew landed a Sonya jazz number. Mary predicted that they may just be America’s favorite couple this season. And Adam said that if Matthew keeps dancing like that, this competition will be his to lose.

Janelle and Dareian struggled this week with their lyrical hip hop routine, not because they did a bad job, but because the choreographer didn’t challenge them enough. Nigel felt uninspired by the routine.

Janaya and Brandon landed a Sean Cheesman Broadway routine about two strangers sitting on a park bench. The girl is reading a steamy romance novel and decides she wants to get frisky with the reluctant gentleman sitting next to her. It was a funny routine, which the judges called fearless, amazing and so entertaining.

Eliana and Cyrus landed the jive which was a struggle for Cyrus. Luckily Eliana helped him through it, and Cyrus managed to be there for her as a partner the entire time.

Alexa and Daniel had a technically challenging contemporary routine which had them hopping in and out of a bathtub constantly. It made it difficult for them to connect on an emotional level with each other and with the audience.

George and Tiffany performed a foxtrot, choreographed by Tony and Melanie. Nigel said these two could give every couple a lesson on how to connect. It put a smile on his face.

Last but not least, Witney and Chehon tackled a challenging Bollywood number. The judges saw joy in Kehon’s performance for the first time. They admitted that while these two didn’t do themselves justice last week with their Samba, they more than made up for it this week.

Elimination

At the end of the show, the judges had to eliminate 2 guys and 2 girls based on the bottom 6 dancers selected by America’s votes. The bottom 6 included Nick, Kehon and Daniel for the guys; and Witney, Alexa and Janaya for the girls. Ultimately, the judges opted to save Kehon and Witney.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
