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!

First, you figure out which is the liar without asking any questions. Say something like, "I'm assuming that you are a guard, but correct me if I am wrong." If they say they aren't a guard, they are a liar. If they say they are or don't say anything, they are the truthful guard. Then, you can proceed to ask them which door is the princess and which one is the dragon.  "I'm assuming you are a guard" this could still be counted as a question. If you simply say "You sir are certinally a guard" then he will simply answer of course I am if he is the truthful guard. If he is the lying guard he with deny it. Your not wrong but, we don't want to take risks with our lives now do we.
