There’s only two weeks left of So You Think You Can Dance, and I’m going to be bummed to see this season end. It’s been the most entertaining season in the show’s history, and I still don’t have a clue who’s going to take the title. The remaining six dancers are all so good that it’s going to be tough to narrow it down to the final four and even tougher to narrow it to a final winner. Here’s a list of my favorite performances from Wednesday night’s show:
Courtney and Mark did a burlesque battle of the sexes jazz dance that was completely different than anything we’ve seen on the show thus far, and these two dancers really sold it.
Katee and Joshua performed a contemporary dance in which Katee took a flying leap and Joshua caught her mid-air (with a leg in each arm) while she was in a perfect split. It was one of those moments that makes you go “Wow” and then immediately hit the back-up button on the DVR remote so you can see it again. This couple has been my favorite all season long, and I’m really hoping they both make it to the show’s finale because they certainly deserve it.
As for solo performances, I’d have to award the best male performance to Twitch, who’s a master at blending humor and hip-hop. And I’d give the award for best female solo to Courtney whose turns and leaps were amazing. As for predictions about Thursday’s eliminations, I think the final four to advance to the finale will be Twitch, Courtney, Joshua and Katee.
Even though I hate to see such a stunning season come to a close, I can hardly wait to see next week’s finale and find out who becomes
