America had a rough night yesterday. The pressure and feeling that somebody will have to leave the show, is not too pleasant. The results show started with amazing group routine choreographed by Shane Sparks.

Then came the results. People voted and Cat Deeley revealed 3 bottom couples from Top 18 show. Here are the names and links to their performances (the ones they were judged on):
Chelsea & Thayne (I hope it wasn’t because of their costumes)
Susie & Marquis (they danced SALSA, but as a latin dancer Susie got a lot of critiques)
Comfort & Chris (Cat was holding up a sign, saying Chris is not a tree… well, see for yourself :))

Each of the bottom dancers had to perform solo to save their life. After a short brake judges have reached the decision and eliminated Susie and Marquis. That salsa was obviously not good enough. Since we are salsa dancers let’s think about it – was that really that bad? No, especially when you think they only have a few hours to get the choreography, synchronize and perform it. This is just a proof of how tough this competition really is. The judges and people are getting stricter each year, but on the other hand, the dancers are getting better as well.

Dancing production in BU-BA
If we move from States to Slovenia, just a quick info, that yesterday BU-BA had it’s own ‘We think we can dance show’. 😉 A yearly production, where all students perform and show what they have learned in past year. The evening was packed with shows. We had a lot of salsa groups, swing dancers, sexy belly dancers, new rising star La luna dance group. In addition, Dulce locura performed the Sway routine again and, believe or not, after a looong break, BU-BA show team appeared with a new show! Crazy ha,.. well, I’ll try to put some clips on asap, till than enjoy the real So you think you can dance 😉


SYTYCD New Season

I couldn’t let go. 🙂 Decided that this year I will inform you about the progress of 4th So you think you can dance season, which started in May. This week was the first week of Top 20 performers. They were paired up into couples and each given their own dance genre, choreographer and routine to deal with. There were already some great routines. Personally, after only watching the show once (you know I will watch it another gazillion times 😉 ), my favorite were:

–  Katee and Joshua’s hiphop 
A beautiful, flowing, yet tight and extremely synchronized routine

Chelsie and Mark’s contemporary
Mia Michaels did it again! This whole picture was phenomenal: the costumes, the choreography and the dancing. AMAZING! Chelsie was like this big snowflake in Marks arms

Besides that I liked the Chelsea and Thayne’s chacha as well… and many more 🙂
This was Wednesday night in the States. Yesterday night came the eliminations. After watching all routines people then have a chance to vote for their favorites and keep them safe from eliminations. After the number of votes are collected, the bottom three couples are named and they have to perform their own solo routine. The strict jury then decides who is the weakest in the competition, so one girl and one boy has to leave. Yesterday they eliminated the first two: ballerina Rayven and ballroom dancer Jamie. It’s always sad to see people leave, but that’s the purpose of the show – to choose America’s favorite dancer!
