Is it just me, or do the dancers on So You Think You Can Dance
get more talented each season? This was another night of fabulous performances, and we also welcomed the All-Stars back for the first time this season.
We bid farewell to Bridget Whitman and Emilio Dosal. The judges are no longer able to save any dancers, so the voting power truly is in the viewers' hands. Let's see if we can predict who may be in danger of seeing their So You Think You Can Dance
journey come to an end.
The Best of the Night
Tanisha Belnap and Ryan DiLello performed a passionate Argentine tango that was absolutely gorgeous. Tanisha's lines were phenomenal, and the lifts were unbelievable. Ryan actually balanced Tanisha on his neck, which was jaw-dropping. Nigel complimented Tanisha's consistency across the season, and I feel that she will be safe.

Another stand-out routine paired Jessica Richens with Stephen "tWitch" Boss for a Nappytabs hip-hop number. First of all, tWitch portrayed an older gentleman, complete with gray hair and a tummy. He looked adorable! Jessica delivered in the swag department, as well as managing to stand-out alongside tWitch, which is very difficult to do.
When Rudy Abreu hit the stage with Jenna Johnson for a cheeky cha-cha, I think the floor nearly ignited. It had steamy chemistry and wonderful technique. Mary was so impressed that she waved Rudy aboard the hot tamale train, and I totally agree with her decision.
Who Is In Danger?
This is a tough one. Valerie Rockey's jazz routine disappointed on a few levels. The judges thought that she was uncomfortable portraying an angry character, and thought that her performance could have been better. Although the routine was athletic and difficult, I think there was a lack of connection between Valerie and her partner, Ade Obayomi. For me, the entire performance just never came together.
Jacque LeWarne and Chehon Wespi-Tschopp performed the first ever contemporary ballet duo, which was choreographed by Travis Wall. Yes, it was beautiful and elegant, especially with the dancer's shadows being shown on the wall behind them. It was also quiet and lacking the panache of the other routines. Is it enough to send Jacque home? I think that it could be because voters may favor other pieces more.
The Broadway number danced by Casey Askew and Kathryn McCormick was odd for me. I thought it was entertaining, but I felt that there was a lack of connection between Casey and Kathryn. The judges seemed to enjoy this routine more than I did, but I think that this routine could be overshadowed by other pieces.
