As much as I love Wednesday night, Thursday always leaves me feeling a
little queasy an uneasy. While every elimination this season has been
difficult and nerve-racking, tonight's should be especially so. All of
the remaining dancers are talented and joy to watch on stage and all of
them more likely than not deserve to be in the top 10 and on the So You
Think You Can Dance
tour, but we have four eliminations before that
In spite of popularity, I fully expect to see some new faces in the
this week. However, if some of the repeated guests in the
Bottom 3 (Caitlin & Jason, Karla & Vitolio) find themselves
dancing for their lives, it would have to be an incredible solo to save
them. While the pending eliminations are upsetting, one thing about
tonight's results show isn't. Of course, I'm talking about Kelly
Clarkson being the musical guest, which is our best hope this season to
see someone actually sing. As proved last night, the musical guests can
leave the lip syncing to Brandon and Janette.
Watch along with me tonight as we discover who will be the latest
dancers to be eliminated. I'll be interviewing the eliminated dancers
(via email due to the holiday) so please submit your questions for the
dancers in the comments or over at BuddyTV's bucc So You Think You Can
. I wanted to see how bucc sounded in a sentence, and I
promise you, I will never do so again, save quoting Lil C.
10 minutes to show time and Nigel is tweeting about "how tough tonight's show will be," which makes my heart sink a little further. Is there upset in the air tonight?
Cat really doesn't like Thursdays and I'm not sure I like her dress
much either. We'll have to take a closer look, but in the shadows it
looks like a belted silver burlap sack.

frame as a prop, crazy costumes and make up. Super fun dance, I wonder
if this is the first MJ related song they were able to get the rights
to? Lots of lifts and high kicks in this dance, and man, is it just me
or does Kayla's costume make her look like she is dancing buck naked?
Everyone is wearing features, I'm not sure I got it--but I did like it.
And yep, I'm right, Kayla does look naked.
And stepping into
the light Cat's dress is bad -- it's like a disco ball romper. The
shape makes it look like it should be made out of terry cloth and
something worn to the gym. To her credit, Cat gets right to announcing
who is safe and who is in the Bottom three.
Vitolio & Karla and Randi & Evan -- one couple is safe, one is in the bottom.
bet this is the upset, where Randi & Evan, the fan darlings end up
in the bottom, and Karla & Vitolio defy all odds and the quickstep
kiss of death...but we'll see.
Vitolio & Karla: BOTTOM 3, Dancing for their lives
Randi & Evan: SAFE
I was totally wrong about that one. Man, popularity really pays off on
this show. I'm a Randi & Evan fan, but I think they deserved a spot
in the Bottom 3 for last night. And ouch Nigel -- these two are
familiar with the bottom 3? Nice way to rub that in.
back, and apparently Cat either had a quickie during the break or she
did not brush her hair before stepping on stage. I was so distracted by
the disco ball disaster, that I didn't notice.
Joining Cat on stage is Brandon & Janette, Kayla & Kupono, and Melissa & Ade
would think that all three of these pairs would be safe after their
dances last night, unless America didn't pick up the phone for Vampires
or classical ballet.
Brandon & Janette - SAFE
they should be for that cha cha last night. Here's a question for you
So You Think You Can Dance archivists, has any dance that made the Hot
Tamale Train ended up in the Bottom 3? )
Kayla & Kupono - Bottom 3, Dancing for their lives
Melissa & Ade - SAFE
(America did dance for a classical ballet piece)
at least Mia and I are in agreement about our shock. Kayla & Kupono
danced the best dance of the night last night, and they're in the
Bottom 3? So strange. Mia says the show can't loose K2, that they are
what the show is all about.
This has me wondering, in spite of
performances, is it just going to be the same old same old in the
bottom 3? Are people not voting on performances?
