I began the penultimate week of this season of So You Think You Can Dance
thinking one thing: it's going to be pretty obvious who's going home. I've changed my mind since: I didn't expect to see people would disagree with my belief that only one thing could happen tonight.
If you've seen my comments on our recap last night, you'll see that I'm pegging Robert Roldan for elimination -- and there's this elaborate theory about the judges criticizing Adechike Torbert, the fans going to save him, and the votes not being in Robert's favor. But after the performance show, during that weekly Starbucks conversation with our resident SYTYCD
girl Tara Spicer, I realized that I could be wrong: she thinks Adechike is going home, and factoring what the judges have been doing the past few weeks, I thought that this week isn't as easy as it seems.
And then I look at your poll numbers from last night's recap and I think, man, I'm in a minority here!
I'll still stick with my pick, but for now, here are the numbers -- and tell me if I'm doing it wrong this week.Poll results from last night's live recap:
Adechike Torbert -- 69%
Robert Roldan -- 20%
Kent Boyd -- 7%
Lauren Froderman -- 4%Tara Spicer's pick for elimination:Adechike Torbert is going home tonight.
Neither of his routines showed us anything special.Henrik Batallones' pick for elimination:Robert Roldan is going home tonight.
Bottom three struggles, plus the judges' actions last night, will send Adechike to the finale.
On tonight's show, one person will end up saying "so close yet so far," while three others will act painfully excited. Who will get the call from Debbie Harry (err, Cat Deeley)
and who'll be left hanging on the telephone?(Image courtesy of Fox)
