Episode 23 Recap: And the Winner Is... Season 3, Episode 23

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

Episode 22 Recap: The Final Four Season 3, Episode 22

Tonight was the final night of dancing. I guess you can say they were dancing for their lives tonight, as our votes determine the winner. Our judges tonight were Dan Karaty, Mary and Nigel. Each dancer had three partner dances, a solo dance and a group dance.First up was a Tyce Diorio Broadway number that involved the top four dancers. They did a routine to Liza Minnelli’s rendition of "Mein Herr" from Cabaret. I found the number interesting and it did hold my attention. I noticed that Neil needed to use his hands to push off when he was doing the flips, while Danny just flipped his whole body around without his hands.Next up, Neil and Sabra did a Shane Sparks hip-hop routine. I found the routine fun to watch, but I agree with the judges that it was not the best hip-hop we have seen this year. Dancy, better known as Danny and Lacey did a Viennese waltz choreographed by Jean-Marc Genereux. I never thought of Avril’s "Keep Holding On" as waltz material, but it actually worke... read more

Episode 21 Recap: The Hardest Cut of All Season 3, Episode 21

It was results night and we all had to sit and wait five days to find out our final four. I tuned in a bit late and caught the opening number already in progress; it looked to me like zombies in the jungle. I just knew it was choreographed by Wade. The poor audience getting the fake fog blown into them; that fog is so not nice to be on the receiving end of. It is also not the best thing for the lungs when you are trying to dance.There was also an update on Cedric, who has been hanging with Debbie and has gotten a full ride to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. It's great to hear that Debbie kept her word and was not just blowing smoke.We were treated to solos by the top six dancers before the results were announced. I liked Sabra's number; she picked a song from Fosse. I was actually surprised by Lacey’s solo; I expected her to do another pole dance or striptease, but she actually danced. I was pretty indifferent about Lauren’s routine.Cat’s comments about Lacey forgett... read more

Episode 20 Recap: Oldies But Goodies Season 3, Episode 20

We are in the homestretch — the final show is a week from tomorrow.Tonight’s judges were Debbie Allen, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. Each dancer danced two different routines in two different styles with the same partner, plus a solo.Pasha and LaceyThe first routine was hip-hop and was choreographed by Dave Scott to "In the Morning" by Junior Boys. When they were describing the number, the first thought that popped into my mind was Mannequin, a movie from 1987. This was a fantastic way to open the show, and the best number of the night as far as I am concerned. Did you see how Pasha looked like a geek?The second routine was a smooth waltz choreographed by Hunter Johnson to "A Daisy in December" by Mick McAuley and Winfred Horan. This looked like a very classic dance, in very classic outfits (black and white). It reminded me of something I’ve seen in the movies.Danny and LaurenThe first routine was in the contemporary style and was choreographed by Mia Michaels to "... read more

Episode 19 Recap: One Wild Night?!? Season 3, Episode 19

Tonight is an elimination night. We are going to lose two dancers.The dancer order last night was Danny/Sabra, Dominic/Lauren, Neil/Lacey and finally Pasha/Sabra.I thought Cat’s dress was interesting. It reminds me of a formal/black-tie affair, but the dress just looks weird. It seemed rather puffy from her waist down.The opening number was fantastic. To me it was a cross between a wind-up music-box ballerina and the Matrix. The movement struck me as classic Wade, so I was surprised to find out it was Shane's routine.Tonight everyone danced solo routines — first the ladies, then the gents. Was it just me or did it seem like all the ladies except Sara just strutted/posed around the stage and didn’t really dance? The gents, on the other hand, all danced and showed off their individual styles. Dom was just insane — dancing with a chair? He also wins the prize for having the longest song title of the night: "She’s a Bad Mama Jama (She’s Built, She’s St... read more

Episode 18 Recap: "Remembrance" Season 3, Episode 18

There are two weeks to go until the final episode. All I can say is: Already? That means summer is coming to an end.Tonight’s judges are Adam Shankman, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe, and each dancer will dance two different routines in two different styles with the same partner.Danny and SaraFirst Routine: Argentine Tango choreographed by Alex DeSilva to "Whatever Lola Wants" by Sarah Vaughan & Gotan Project. I just loved this number and I am starting to see some more personality in Danny — he actually connected. I am just wondering if Sara out-danced him. What do you guys think?Second Routine: Hip Hop choreographed by Shane Sparks to "Push It" by Salt-n-Pepa.Loved the song — brought back some fun memories. This is the first time I’ve seen Danny looking like he was having fun.Dominic and LaurenFirst Routine: Krump choreographed by Lil C to "I Get Money" by 50 Cent.I just didn’t feel anything from this number. I also did not get the feeling that they were... read more

Episode 17 Recap: "10 Dancers on the Stage, Two Fall Off" Season 3, Episode 17

Tonight is the first results show of the top 10. From here on out, all the eliminated dancers will be on tour in the fall. The rules on how this part of the competition work are pretty straightforward: The bottom two male and female dancers will perform a solo and then the male and female dancer with the lowest vote totals go home. The voting is from Wednesday night’s performance.A drumroll, please, for the ladies' results, which are as follows: Sabra, Lacey and Sara are safe. Jaimie and Lauren will now need to dance a solo.A trumpet fanfare, please, for the gentlemen's results: Neil, Danny and Pasha are safe. Dominic and Kameron will need to dance a solo. After 6.5 million votes, we are saying goodbye to Jaimie and Kameron.Did you see Kameron’s and Pasha’s reactions? They were shocked at the results. It seemed like Pasha expected to be in the bottom and Kameron expected to be safe.Am I surprised that both Dom and Kameron were in the bottom two? Not really. Am I surp... read more

Episode 16 Recap: "The Top 10" Season 3, Episode 16

Wow, Sabrina sure picked a difficult night for me to start. We're in the top 10 now, so everyone got to dance twice, once with a partner and once solo, and the audience voted on the dancers individually.I'm going to split this entry into two parts, the couples' dances and then the individual dances.The CouplesLauren and Pasha: They did a hip-hop number choreographed by Shane, and I loved it. I'm trying to decide what they were performing as in the dance. I'm thinking they were zombies that were trying to crawl out of the grave, but everyone else there seemed to think they were Transformers.Sabra and Kameron: These two did a contemporary number choreographed by Tyce. All I can say is wow.Lacey and Danny: This pair's samba number was choreographed by Dmitry from last season. I'm pretty certain the ladies and some gents as well will think Dmitry was looking fine, but I thought Danny looked so uncomfortable when the routine called for him to be physically close to Lacey. I also got the ... read more
