All right, so I called it last week by ranking Jaimie last, let's see if I can pull off some similar magic today. I don't know about the rest of you So You Think You Can Dance
fans, but there wasn't much that made me alter my views on any of these ladies. They've pretty much established who they are as dancers. The problem we have in ranking them is that they are all very, very good, but unique at the same time. Depending on the routine, any of the remaining four girls could be sent home Thursday. It's hard to argue either way. It also, unfortunately, depends on who they get partnered with. That all being said, here's how I would rank the four remaining ladies on So You Think You Can Dance
#4 – Lauren Gottlieb
I like Lauren and think she has as much, if not more, potential than any of the other girls, but she's been the most inconsistent of the last four girls. She was solid last week in the Shane Sparks hip/hop routine, so if she can build on that and put something nice together, she should get the votes to stick around. Since it is up to America, we also have to look at voting history. Lauren has been in the bottom three far more times than any of the other three ladies, and indication that she's going to need a lot of help to stick around until next week.
#3 – Sabra Johnson
Sabra's been called a natural by the judges, and that's is a perfect way to describe her. She's only been dancing for a few years, and her versatility and ability to pick up the essence of different genres so quickly is astonishing. It's just that, for me, the two girls in front of her have just been a little better and more dynamic. Depending upon the routine, Sabra could make it to the final four and it wouldn't be a surprise at all.
#2 – Lacey Schwimmer
This was my big decision. Do I keep Lacey in the number one spot or do I drop her? I enjoy Lacey, think she's an incredibly talented dancer, but I don't think she's as versatile as some of the others. I don't like her hip/hop abilities and think she's a little bit of a loose cannon. The betting odds are probably still on Lacey winning this whole competition, but for this week she's at number two. Can everyone just deal with that?
#1 – Sara von Gillern
I have to give Sara some love here. Has she had a bad performance all year? She has been incredibly consistent and has adapted to various dances outside of her comfort zone. She proved last week that she could jump in with a new partner and just plain rip it up. Why wouldn't this continue? I can't remember the last time she was voted into the bottom. Also, Sara is probably my favorite dancer this season, so I may be a little biased, but I would argue she is completely deserving?
What are your thoughts? How would you rank these four dancers going into Wednesday's show?
