Reality Twists and Turns

As Cat Deeley herself might say, "Well done, you." And by "you," I mean America, in making exactly the right call in the final So You Think You Can Dance voting and putting Danny and Sabra in the final two. My own speed-dialing Wednesday night went to Danny, a truly awesome dancer, but I’m at peace with Sabra winning the ultimate prize. The show was overdue a female winner, and Sabra's raw, exuberant talent (not to mention her total lack of attitude) was a marvel to behold throughout the competition.As for Thursday's final show, props to giving Lauren and Pasha (the two evicted in Monday's pretaped show) a chance to get their well-deserved public ovation.

Episode 23 Recap: And the Winner Is...

Tonight was the season finale of SYTYCD and we found out the winner.The top 20 dancers were back to perform group numbers and some of their best individual routines. There were few surprises in store for us during this two-hour episode.The show opened with Tyce’s take on a routine from The Lion King. It was great to see the top 20 all back together; it was also great to finally see a Broadway number done right. Broadway numbers really cannot be done without 10 or more people. We were also treated to group dance routines by the top eight and 10.We were then treated to the routines that the choreographers wanted to see again. These routines, in order of performance, were:Mary: Pasha and Lauren — Shane’s TransformerNigel: Hok and Jamie — Wade’s Hummingbird and FlowerJean-Marc: Dom and SabraAdam: Sara and Neil — discoWade: Lacey and Danny — Dmitry’s sambaShane: Sara and Pasha — Benji’s West Coast swingTyce: Danny and Anya — fox-trot... read more
