So You Think You Can Dance: Season 9, Episode 10 :: Top 14 Perform

Aug 16, 2012

This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 9, Episode 10), the Top 14 dancers perform choreographer Mia Michaels’ greatest routines in SYTYCD history. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Top 14 Perform,” which aired on August 15, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Mia Michaels Tribute

As a tribute to the living legend Mia Michaels, SYTYCD has welcomed the beloved choreographer back to relive some of her most memorable pieces. It just goes to show how much she dominated the show because of how many of her pieces truly were unforgettable.

The Door Routine

First up, Cyrus and Eliana recreated the Emmy nominated door routine, originally performed by season 4’s Twitch and Katee. The judges thought Eliana was so strong that she could have beaten up Cyrus, though they felt that Cyrus did bring something of himself to the performance.

The Hometown Glory Routine

George and Tiffany landed the Hometown Glory piece performed by season 4’s Katee and Joshua. While the assisted run didn’t come off as strong as it did in the original piece, the judged loved the flawless transitions, particularly from George.

The Butt Routine

Amelia and Will performed the quirky butt dance, which was hard to recreate considering it was specifically designed for the original dancers - season 5‘s Randi and Evan. The judges thought Amelia could have brought more character to the piece, although they were split in their opinions of the overall performance.

The Bed Routine

Janelle and Dareian took on the unforgettable bed routine, originally performed by Twitch and Karrington in season 4. Nigel loved that Dareian’s personality was finally starting to shine through, although, because of the natural of the piece, Janelle didn’t stand out at all.

The Loss of Mia's Father Routine

Audrey and Matthew attempted the delicate piece about the loss of Mia’s father, performed in season 3 by Neil and Lacy. While Matthew tried to capture the heart of it, the judges didn’t feel his passion, although they thought Audrey was “a shining star.”

The Bench Routine

Witney and Chehon landed the famous bench routine, performed in season 2 by Travis and Heidi. The judges were amazed by how well they pulled it off. Witney was fearless with her leap off the bench. Although Chehon was a little too controlled in spots.

The Addiction Routine

Last, but certainly not least, Linsday and Cole performed Mary’s favorite Mia routine of all time - her addiction piece, performed by Kayla and Kupono on season 5. While the choreography and costumes were identical, the dancers had a completely different take on the piece. Both were equally phenomenal. 

Elimination

This week, the judges had to eliminate 4 dancers to in order to reach the Top 10. The bottom 6, based on last week’s votes, included George, Dareian and Matthew, along with Amelia, Janelle and Lindsay. Thanks to their amazing performances this week, the judges opted to round off the Top 10 with George and Linsday. Next week, each dancer will split from their partner and join with one of the 10 all-stars!

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
