And cue legsses

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2012 by Travis Cody in

Welcome to reveal night!

Cat Deeley update...beautiful hair, lovely frock, terrific shoesses, outstanding legsses.

We sat back and enjoyed our Top 20.  I like the reveal show because it gives the dancers a chance to perform in their own style, without threat of elimination or intense judging.  And we get to know them a little bit through their dance.

I'm not looking for this group to be top to bottom as outstanding as last season's dancers.  That's way too much pressure.  I think Season 9 is going to show us some excellent potential and probably some surprises.

Ready for it?

I know we are!

Oh wait...happy 200th episode!

Here is our Season 9 Top 20.  Pictures to follow when I have time to collect them.

Alexa Anderson, contemporary
Lindsay Arnold, ballroom
Daniel Baker, ballet
Nick Bloxsom-Carter, ballroom
Witney Carson, ballroom
Audrey Case, jazz
Janaya French, contemporary
Eliana Girard, ballet
Cole Horibe, martial artist
Janelle Issis, belly dancer
Amber Jackson, contemporary
Matthew Kazmierczak, contemporary
Dareian Kujawa, contemporary
George Lawrence II, contemporary
Amelia Lowe, contemporary
Tiffany Maher, jazz
Brandon Mitchell, stepper
Cyrus Spence, animator
Will Thomas, contemporary
Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, ballet

And if I may share the genius of Mia Michaels?  She managed to incorporate a style element from each and every one of those 20 dancers into a complete and stunning routine.

Later gang!

  1. hello Travis~ i couldn't wait to tell you that i watched SYTYCD this past Tuesday... all because of your postings of the show. i hadn't watched in a long while so thank you for reintroducing it to me. i simply loved all the dances but Mia stole the show with her routine. i simply love her creativity. she's incredible. but i also like several of the other instructors as well. they all have such flavor. have a great weekend~
