Our Top Fourteen Are Revealed Season 4, Episode 11

I think the judges are sending the right people home. But before we get to that, I'll start at the beginning of the show. At first glance Cat's dress tonight is even better than the one last night. But the more I look at it the less I enjoy it. The ruffle thing going on at the neckline just isn't that flattering. I like everything from the waist down and the neck up. I hope her stylists don't do that to Cat again. I really like the group dance. Some of you probably pick it out as a Mia Michaels original immediately but I thought it was actually a Wade Robson piece. You know how much he likes all those jerky movements and he is the only one (before tonight) to put a scream in his choreography. But I'm not disappointed Mia choreographed it. It's strange and weird and cool just like her. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or did we see Nigel wearing leather tonight? I'm not sure we've ever seen that before. I guess it was nice to see him out of his suits he does come off as a bit of a dandy sometimes but he might have taken it just a bit too far. I'll give him points for trying and call it an interesting choice. Let's get down to the results: Chelsea & Thayne dancing for their lives. No surprise here. No one seemed to like their Quick Step last night. Katee & Joshua safe. Um, they'd better be. Chelsie & Mark safe. Ditto the above. Kherington & Twitch safe. You know I love them, so I'm happy. Courtney & Gev safe Comfort & Chris dancing for their lives. I'm not surprised. I love seeing Comfort dance in her style so I don't mind having to watch her solo. We'll see what Chris does this week. Kourtni & Matt dancing for their lives. Considering how much I didn't get their piece last night, I'm not surprised. Jessica & Will safe Our featured performer of the week is "America's Best Dance Crew" Quest. It features three former contestants of this show, including one of my all-time favorite dancers Hok. I think I've mentioned before how much I like that SYTYCD is doing this. I like seeing the different styles and what the professionals in each style bring to the dance floor. That being said, I enjoyed their piece but I didn't love it. I think sometimes the camera work is too spastic and it's hard to take it all in. Solos: Chelsea I like her solo tonight. Last week I thought she didn't bring it but tonight I'm really impressed. We see her great personality and some pretty good technique. Thayne He scared me a little bit in the middle when he seemed to lose focus. But overall, I enjoy his solos and I think he did a great job. Comfort Great job. I agree with Cat: I was afraid she'd dance her pants off. Despite that, I think we could really see Comfort having fun tonight. Chris I like his dancing but there's nothing that makes him stand out for me tonight. I'm not rooting for him the way I'm rooting for the others who are dancing for their lives. Kourtni I love it. Her personality really shines through and you can tell how thoughtful she was when putting choreography to this piece of music. Great job. Matt I think we're seeing some personality for the first time! I think he's a great technician and I'm actually rooting for him to stay. And what did the judges think? Oh, yeah. I almost forgot to mention Jordin Sparks. I did watch a bit of her performance. I would have watched it all if she was singing "No Air" with Chris Brown. I'm just saying. And who was sent home? Chelsea and Chris. I think it was time for them to leave so I'm not too unhappy. Chelsea had the bad luck to start off so hot and then do nothing but cool down in the last few weeks. She didn't have the technique for the last two week's dances, so I think it was time for her to go. She was very gracious, of course, and said how privileged she was to have been there. And after what I consider a somewhat bland solo, Chris is sent packing. I was concerned for Matt for just a moment when Nigel kind of psyched us out. But Chris is the one sent home. Chris tells Cat his time on the show has been like a dream come true. Awww. I wish them both the best and look forward to seeing what they'll do in the future. What did you think? Did the judges send the right dancers home? As always, thanks for all your great comments so far. Keep 'em coming. show less
