So You Think You Can Dance Finale Results Recap 8/11/11


Melanie Moore wins SYTYCD Season 8!!!

Sasha Mallory takes 2nd place!

Marko Gemar takes 3rd!

Tadd Gaddaung takes 4th place!

Great night of entertainment tonight!  I always enjoy seeing the Judge’s favorite performances of the season and the lead up to the winner.

Here’s the recap!

The show opened with the group routine to Don’t you Wanna Get Hyped by District 78.    This is some serious choreography.  I’m thinking that this has to be some Sonya Tayek’s  work.  My niece offers up one word to sum this dance up:  Awesome!  She is right!  And so am I.  This is Sonya’s work!  Video

So You Think You Can Dance Recap 7/13/11!


The Top 6 will perform two numbers tonight.  The pressure is on!  This is the last week that the contestants will be judged with their partners as a couple. 

Jesse Tyler Fergueson and Sonya Tayek join Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe on the Judges table.  It turns out that Jesse has an extensive Broadway background.  Who knew?  I just knew he is pretty funny on Ordinary Family

Sasha and Alexander:  They danced the Paso Doble with choreograhy by Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin.  The story is the battle between masculinity and femininity.   What a brilliant Paso Doble!  It was powerful and was everything that I want to see in the Paso.  Both Sasha and Alexander  were fierce, but Sasha may have a bit more intensity.  This was some pretty hot stuff.  Lol.  Sasha did the traditional male knee (crawl thing) sweep with Alexander.   Nigel:  He thought the choreoraphy recognized Sasha’s strengths and played to them.   He also thought that Alexander kept up with her, which is difficult to do,  because Sasha is such a strong great character.  Mary:  She called for an Ole from the crowd, because they deserve it.  She felt that Sasha dominated and she has never seen a woman do a leg crawl like she did.  Alexander had a breakthrough tonight.  Sasha was a little bit stronger, but he did a good job.  Jesse:  It was highly dramatical and he loved it.  Sasha is such a pillar of strength and Alexander completely came up to her level.  Sonya:  Sasha you rock my socks.  You indulge in it (the performance).   She also feels that  Alexander has it in him, but he has to trust himself more.   The choreographers are  dedicating this dance to their friend who is fighting cancer.  Video    888.836.7601

So You Think You Can Dance Recap 7/6/11


Tonight, Carmen Electra and Travis Walls will join Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy.  Carmen shares with us her dance history….who knew?  Not I said the cat.,  Travis is very grateful to be  a judge tonight.  He has really come a long way!  I mean to go from Contestant to Award winning Choreographer to Judge.  He deserves it!  I love his Choreography.

7 couples are still in it to win it and tonight they will be paired with several new Choreographers. 

Top 7 Guys performed a Justin Giles Contemporary routine.  This dance is about the seven stages of grief: denial, shock, anger, depression, guilt, bargaining and acceptance.  Each dance will represent the changes that 1 man will experience when his girlfriend is unfaithful.   They danced to Prague by Damien Rice.   Video

So You Think You Can Dance Recap 6/22/11


Tonight our Top 20 will take the stage again and tomorrow 2 couples will be cut.  Our Judges are  Nigel Nythgoe, Mary Murphy and the legendary Debbie Reynolds.  True Hollywood royalty in the house tonight!  The true treat is Debbie.  She doesn’t give much of a critique for any of the Dancers, because she loves everyone!  But her humor and witt is outstanding.  I love that she wanted to take all of the Dancers (particularly the males) home with her. 

Ryan & Ricky:  They dance a Mandy Moore’ Jazz Routine.  This is a sexually charged tension routine.  I hope that they can pull it off.  They dance to Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer.  Hmm…. I think that this was a good number and they dance it well, but the sexiness that was needed to pull it off didn’t come through for me.  But otherwise… Bravo!  Nice sexy ending though.   Nigel thought that it was so rauncy that  they stepped off the hot tamale train.  He wanted to throw a bucket of water on them.  Mary says that she is addicted to the two of them.  She enjoyed that Ryan was so strong and sees her as a Warrior Vixen.  Ricky was in the character the whole time.  They had total trust.  Debbie:  She never saw anyone dance sexier.   She thought that Ryan gave it her all.   Video  888.836.7601
