Before we begin the excitement of the Top 6 dances of So You Think You Can Dance season 9, let's take a quick look back at last week's performances. More specifically, let's take a look at each of the Top 8 dancers' solo routines in these videos.
In addition to their normal, partnered dances, each of the contestants remaining in the Top 8 of So You Think You Can Dance
season 9 had to perform a solo routine. And they were pretty much all amazing. Unlike the normal dances -- all learned in a week or less and usually in an unfamiliar style -- the solos actually reflect the best that each performer can give.
The results are stunning. Check out each of the videos here.Chehon Wespi-Tschopp
One might call Chehon the ultimate SYTYCD
soloist. He made it to the Green Mile almost solely on the basis of one absolutely incredible solo in Las Vegas. The solos have been just as good since then. It probably helps that the ballet dancer can leap what looks like 20 feet into the air while in beautiful position.Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer
Despite all his struggles with some of the dance styles featured on So You Think You Can Dance
, Cyrus is nearly perfect when he goes back to his favored robot dancing. You truly could believe that this man was a machine. That's kind of cool -- and probably a major reason why Glitch is still on the show.Cole Horibe
There has rarely been a style of dance so unique as Cole's. There certainly hasn't been a style of dance that's both this unique and this successful. I could seriously watch a two-hour show featuring nothing but Cole's solos.Eliana Girard
Since she excels at everything on So You Think You Can Dance
, it's hard sometimes to remember that Eliana is a ballet dancer. This solo reminds us of that fact. She's awfully good at ballet.Witney Carson
No one as little and cute as Witney should be quite so sexy. But she is. The judges love her solos, and this is a prime example of why.Tiffany Maher
If someone had told me, back in the Top 20 week, that Tiffany would be in the Top 6 of So You Think You Can Dance
, I would not have believed you. But here she is. The girl is pretty incredible, especially for someone we never saw coming.Will Thomas
Try as I might, I just can't picture Will as a dancer when he is standing still. And then he starts to move. It is easy to believe Will's dance ability when we see it in action.Lindsay Arnold
It's almost too bad that there were two exceptional ballroom dancers this season. Someone had to go first. And that someone was Lindsay. But it probably was not because of this solo.
