So You Think You Can Dance: Season 10, Week 13 :: The Top 10 Perform/2 Eliminated

Aug 14, 2013

This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 10, Week 13), the top 10 dancers partner up with the all-stars! Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “The Top 10 Perform/2 Eliminated” which aired on August 13th, 2013, to discover what you missed.

This week, Debbie Allen joined the judges panel to watch the top 10 team up with SYTYCD's best of the best - the all-stars! Whether it was the all-stars' influence or simply amazing routines from the choreographers, the judges wound up on their feet more often than not this week, giving the contestants standing ovations.

The Performances

First up was Amy and all-star Brandon who tackled season 10's first disco. The judges couldn't believe all of the difficult and amazing lifts, especially the death drop at the end that left Amy's face an inch from the floor. Mary didn't like the song choice - an uptempo remix of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," but Amy's vivaciousness made up for that.

Aaron and all-star Kathryn performed a Stacey Tookie contemporary routine about unconditional love to the song "I'm Kissing You" featured in Romeo & Juliet. Debbie thought their pairing was magical, and Aaron's talent has risen week after week.

Fik-shun and SYTYCD winner Melanie Moore performed a Mandy Moore jazz routine that had the judges on their feet. They couldn't say enough about Melanie, however, Fik-shun surprisingly managed to keep up with her.

Paul and all-star Whitney, who is on Dancing With The Stars and just finished filming her first movie, performed a sexy cha-cha choreographed by Jean Marc Genereux. Mary Murphy put both Whitney and Paul on the hot tamale train!

Hayley and all-star Twitch performed a Chris Scott hip-hop routine. Watching it, it didn't seem that great compared to the first four routines, although the judges gave it high praise. Debbie especially complimented Twitch, saying she couldn't take her eyes off of him.

Jenna and all-star Neil performed a beautiful contemporary routine by Mandy Moore. Nigel loved the fluidity of their movement, and he complimented Mandy for two beautifully choreographed routines this week. Nigel called Jenna the best all-round dancer they've ever had on the show that has come on as a ballroom dancer.

Jasmine and Marco earned a standing ovation for their quirky jazz number that required them to be completely in sync during the whole performance. Mary Murphy couldn't get enough of Jasmine's legs.

Makenzie and all-star Jacob performed a sexy Broadway routine that didn't really have a storyline, which is unusual for Broadway pieces. Debbie found the routine reminiscent of classic Hollywood films. Nigel doesn't understand why Makenzie keeps winding up in the bottom week after week, especially when she and Jacob had the best pairs of feet he's seen on the show.

Nico and all-star Comfort performed an unusual hip-hop routine that was about reptiles. The audience seemed to like it more than Nigel, he admitted, although Mary disagreed. She thought it was great.

Finally, Tucker and all-star Robert performed contemporary piece by Travis Wall - a choreographer who never fails to impress. The two were paired up because both dancers nearly lost their lives in car accidents, so Travis designed a piece about two brothers, one of whom has hit rock bottom. This earned a standing O, and tears from Mary Murphy.

Elimination

Because they're down to the top 10, only the bottom 2 males and females were announced. No one had to dance for their lives this week because all four of the dancers - Jenna, Makenzie, Nico and Tucker - had been in the bottom before. After their performances tonight, the judges opted to send Nico and Makenzie home.

Oml, I remember when I first saw the song title of that on YouTube. XD I couldn't stop laughing for like an hour. That is such a weird song title. It sounds a bit naïve to me, honestly. FroyoYOLO... Like what even? Granted though, I've never heard the song or even seen much but seconds of the show..."InternetOwl" wrote:Liv and Maddie is a corny show in itself, tbh. But yeah, it is a bit.
