Tonight, our Top 6 will dance to prove that they are the Chosen one and who gets that $250,000!  I’m really hoping that the ‘best’ dancer gets it, not the most popular!   Each of the Contestants will perform 3 dances tonight.

Kathryn and Ryan.  They danced to Jason Gilkinson’s Samba  to ‘Magalenha’ by Sergio Mendes.  Great dance, but I was looking for more.   I did enjoy the ending.  Nigel was very impressed and he thought that they had great chemistry.  Mary loved that Kathryn was so into it.  She thought it was fantastic for the pair.  Adam thinks that the show should be called ‘the rise of Kathryn’.  He thought they were stunning and he was very impressed that Ryan danced shirtless.

Ellenore & Jakob.  They danced to Tyce Diorio’s Broadway  routine  ‘I gotcha’ by Fosse  (sampling of Def Jef’s ‘Give it Here’ for you Hip Hop lovers).  Nigel loved that Tyce allowed them to show their two styles in this one dance.  Mary thought that Ellenore was smoldering and committed to the dance.  She thought that Jakob was just tremendous tonight.  Adam compared their dancing to a number out of  ‘All that Jazz’.  He loved it!  He thought that Ellenore has never looked more beautiful and Jakob proved to be a great partner again!

Ashley and Russell.   They did a Lyrical Jazz piece by Sonya Tayek.    They danced to  ‘Angel Standing by’ by Jewel.  I thought that this dance was beautiful and it is great to see Ashleigh get to dance in the Final performance night of the Season.  Nigel thought this whole dance was about Russell, because  he was so great that he couldn’t take his eyes off of him.  He thought they had a great chemistry and that  Russell is bloody incredible.  Mary thought Ashleigh was drop dead gorgeous tonight and her passion  is  unbelievable.  But Russell is so special.  Mary was moved to tears and thought he was truly  incredible.  Adam thanked Sonya for her Choreography.  He thought that Ashleigh literally looked like a guardian angel for her partner and that Russell kicked the dance’s ass.

Ellenore and Ryan.  They danced to a Jazz routine by Gary Stewart.  They danced to Kontact me’ by Boy’s Noise.  It’s kind of interesting to me at this point, because it seems like all of the Choreographers are tailoring everything to Ellenore’s quirkiness.  Nigel wasn’t able to channel any emotion in this routine and thought that it was  more techno than jazz.  Mary loved the dance because  it was unique.  She thought that there were dynamic moments, but she sees can also see what Nigel meant.  Adam agreed with both of his  colleagues.  He thought this dance was perfect for Ellenore.  Ryan was a great prop for her in the routine.

Jean Marc Fox trot. Let the Good Times Roll by Chuck Brown and eva cassidy.  Jakob and Ashleigh.  Great music is everything and this song was definitely a great accomplice for this dance.  This was actually a very fun Fox Trot.  I really liked it.  Nigel thought she was fantastic.  Outstanding chemistry.  He didn’t think it was as strong as other dances.  Mary thoguht that Ashleigh was outstanding.  Jakob  needs a little help, but she loves him.  Adam thought that they had teamwork and really showed each other off.

Ellenore and Russell.  They danced a Paso Doble to Jason Gilkinson’s choreography.  They performed to ‘Village Attack from the  Blood Soundtrack.  This  number  was hot and passionate!  I Loved it!  Nigel thought that Russell could have been sharper and although he was very passionate and fiery, Ellenore was perfection.  Mary thought she was fired up!  Russell didn’t have his arms down, but she thought that  he was on fire.  Adam loved Russell’s footwork.  He thought Ellenore was Magnificent.

Kathryn and Jakob.  They danced a Contempory piece by Dwight and Desmond.   They performed to ‘At This Moment’ by Michael Buble.  This dance was another winner for me.  First of all,  this song is one of my favorites (Michael P. Keaton stuff) and it really complimented this beautiful dance.  Kathryn was good, but this was Jakob’s dance.  He is showing that he is in it to win it!  LOVED IT!!  Nigel pointed out that they stopped the show with a powerful Standing O.  He thought that Kathyn rises to each occasion.   She was stunning.  Jakob was outstandingly gifted.  Mary thought it was one of the best performances that she has ever seen.  Adam thought this was a game changer.  They are helping to raise awareness in this country about how important dance is to this country.

Ashleigh and Ryan.  They performed a Contemporary piece to Travis Wall’s choreography.  They danced to ‘Im there too’ by Michelle  Featherstone.   It was really nice to see this husband and wife dance together.  I knew that they would really compliment each other, because obviously they have been dancing together for a long time.  I really enjoyed how easily they flowed together.  Very nice to watch.  Nigel feels that Ashleigh has better chemistry with Jakob than husband (a joke, I think), but they have proven that they deserve to be here.  Mary thought they created a beautiful memory for a couple who got to dance together on a world stage.  Adam thought that the best thing for him was to expericence the incredible tenderness between the two.

Kathryn & Russell.  Hip Hop number by Nap & Tabs.  I can Transform Ya  by Chris brown Ft. Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz.  Kathryn and Russell were on fire with this one.  There was so much going on and I was feeling each movement!  Fabulous Hip Hop dance.  Nigel thought it was great.  Russell was great very tremendous and he expected that, but he didn’t expect Kathryn to be so gangsta.   Mary doesn’t know how America will vote, but these two have her heart.  Adam pointed out the diversity of the dances that Kathryn and Russell did earlier this evening and how great it is that they still came out and killed this dance.  I agree.

Based on the Feedback and performances tonight and the whole season, I think that Russell or Jakob are the contenders for the guys.  Ellenore or Kathryn for the girls.  I’m pulling for Russell!  He has truly been the Underdog of this Season!
