Encores and results

Posted: Friday, July 31, 2009 by Travis Cody in

And cue music. Welcome to

Here are a few encores.

I thought Evan held his own in strength and athleticism in the guys' group dance. To those who say that Brandon and Ade are better dancers in this style, you might be right. But I'll remind you that Brandon was the one who stepped out of a back flip at about 1:30. Click here.

I didn't really like the gals' super hero dance. It was a cool concept, but I didn't care for the dancing. Still, with both of the group dances you can see and compare the kids and make your own decisions about who you like. Click here.

I couldn't find clips of the solos, but I can tell you that I thought Brandon's was one of the best of this season.

Dance of the night goes to the Contemporary from Kayla and Brandon. Click here.

Cat update...it's LEGSES in a gorgeous green sequined number. Most outstanding!

The Top 6 have a moment together in a beautiful dance choreographed by Tyce Diorio. Simply wonderful.

Hey...tonight we're seeing some dances from last season by the original dancers.

Results first for the gals...Jeanine is in the finale, which means the other spot for the gals is between Kayla and Melissa.

Jessica Goodwin and Will Wingfield return with Silence choreographed by Tyce Diorio. Stunning, just as I remembered it.

Results now for the guys...Brandon is in the finale, which means the other spot for the guys is between Ade and Evan.

Katee Shean and Twitch Boss return with Mercy choreographed by Mia Michaels. Excellent.

Chelsie Hightower and Joshua Allen return with A Los Amigos choreographed by Dmitry Chaplin. Outstanding.

Now we have solos, which will not change the results.

Melissa - I liked that a little better this time.
Ade - Still didn't like it.
Kayla - I didn't like the solo, but she has star power.
Evan - The final spins and the little leap...that's as good as anybody else.

JabbaWockeeZ performs. That's what they mean when they talk about synchronization. Wow.

Chelsie Hightower and Mark Kanemura return with Bleeding Love choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon D'Umo. Damn that is so good!

I can report that Chelsie Hightower was eliminated in the Top 6 round along with Mark Kanemura. Chelsie was in two of the Emmy nominated dances from last season. And she had a terrific season as a pro on Dancing with the Stars, taking Ty Murray to the finale this past spring.

Here we go now.

Kayla is in the finale, which means Melissa is out.

EVAN IS IN THE FINALE, which means Ade is out.



Tune in next week when our Top 4 finalists - Brandon, EVAN, Jeanine, Kayla - dance for our votes to become America's Favorite dancer.

    Congrats to the 4 finalists. It's going to be a super show. I didn't know that Chelsie Hightower was on SYTYCD. That's awesome because she was so good with Ty. Thanks for the info. Trav I hope Evan does well. I'm gonna pick here and now and I want Jeanine to win. Any one of them I will be happy just because all of them are winners if you ask me. This is one show that I truly enjoy a great deal and the work and all they do is just awesome. It's a great inspiration. Happy Positive Day, 2009

  1. Sorry I haven't stopped by lately. Life has gotten in my way of blogging. My favs are Kayla and Brandon although they are all excellent in their own right. Thanks so much for the recaps!

    I didn't get a chance to watch the results show last night so I was holding my breath the whole time I was reading this while hoping that I wasn't going to see that Evan was eliminated.


    And that's all I'm gonna say about that!!

  1. I am pleased as punch with the final 4 =)

    Then again as I have told you before once we got to the Top 8 or so it was hard to really argue against any of them. Can't wait for the fall season! And we only have to wait like 5 weeks for it! Between that and Glee I am jazzed.

    Thom: Chelsie, Lacey, and Dmitry all were on SYTYCD. I think we're going to enjoy the finale.

    Driller: Agreed on all points.

    Tookie: Although my favorite is Evan, I do like all four of these dancers in the finale.

    Linda: We were so excited to hear Evan's name announced. It was definitely a WOOO moment!

    Starr: I may need to find a way to work in that Glee show this fall.

    Marsha: I think we're going to enjoy it!
