So You Think You Can Dance - "Top 6" (8/8 & 8/13/07)

Note that there is no results show this week - football.

We have to wait Monday night for that but it is being taped so I expect reports on that to pop out early anyway.

Then we have the finale next wed/thurs - 2 hrs each night.

Dunno who is the music guest.
Quick recap:
Spoiler:
Guest judge - Debbie Allen

New pairs:
Lacey-Pasha: hip-hop/Smooth Waltz
Lauren-Danny: contemporary/Disco
Sabra-Neil: Jazz/Paso Doble

Everyone does a solo.

Reports claim that all the partner dancs were really good. We'll see.

Fans of So u think u can dance may want to ahem acquire on the net copies of a new UK dance tv show called DanceX

It is somewhat similar in that they had the audition part then the narrowing down part but the performance part is a bit different. It's group v group and they perform an ensemble dance number, a few actually and the viewers vote on which group is best then one dancer per week from the losing group has to go.

Is pretty good actually

Wow.

Tonight was really, really, really, really good.

I still say that it'll be Danny, Pascha, Lacey, and Sabra... but now that I think that it's Sabra's contest to lose... but I'm still pulling for Pascha or Lacey.

1. Sabra - the class of the competition with the ability to combine style and performance.
2. Lacey - her fakeness is starting to wear on me, but she is still a solid dancer.
3. Lauren - she seems to be getting better, but on her solo it was really evident she does not have the skills of the other two.

1. Danny - still picking up a bit of steam, but like I said before, too late.
2. Neil - I think he is starting to pull ever so close to Danny and seems to be the most popular male, which is all that really matters.
3. Pasha - I like the guy, but like Lauren, his solo revealed he is not in the same class as the other. He still might be the best partner however for more traditional styles.

I really loved that jazz boardroom routine.

I think it is pretty clear at this point that Lauren and Pasha are gone.

Lacey looked great with her hair back like that and with the leather jacket.

I couldn't decide who to vote for this week.

Sabra/Neil's partner dances were my favorites tonight but all were pretty good although I didn't really like the contemporary but I think Mia is a bit overrated.

I think Lauren and Pasha will go this week too. I'd be bummed if Neil or Sabra get cut this week.

If the show is in fact being taped tomorrow night, the reports should come in after 10 PM ET. I'll try to post them here as spoilers when they come in.

Looks like it was so hot that it effected your sentence structure.

Wow, I enjoyed every dance tonight. Thought they were all amazing!! I think Pasha will go, even though his dances were so great..Lauren brought it tonight, but her movements are so jerky and I dont think she is technically very good. She falls out of a lot of her turns, but tonight was the best she has ever danced. I could watch Danny dance forever, he mesmerizes me. Sabra is the best combo of dancer, technique and performance. She does dance with her heart. Lacey dances for herself, but that smooth waltz was a thing of beauty. Great week...it's really anybodies game.

Tonight was so good. The routines were good, the pairings were shot, and everything really worked. I loved every dance but the disco. (I even enjoyed that though, because Danny really is a lot more fun since Anya left. I couldn't stand him when they were together.) My favorite was Mia's though. That really blew me away. I have watched it like 20 times since the show ended, and I am likely going to go back for more. Love, love, love that routine.

I can't believe we have to wait until Monday for the results. I was all yelling at Kat, "What did you say?" That's not good. I want the show tomorrow darn it.

Somehow I can't see the judges ever critiquing Mia's routines. I thought it was just OK. My prediction is that Pasha & Lauren will be the ones to go.

Yeah it seems like she is the most-well know so they are always very careful not to be harsh on her and lavish her with praise. Maybe it is just that the style does not do much for me, but I rarely find her routines captivating.

I think she is a dancer's choreographer. By that I mean that her movements are so difficult, even though they may not look that way. She has the body bend in such unnatural ways, always requiring full extensions and her leaps and turns are usually done in awkward ways, not natural to a body at all. So although it may look elementary, a dancer will appreciate the difficulty and beauty in those movements.

Of course that doesnt change the fact you didnt enjoy it. I'm just saying I think that is why the judges go crazy for her stuff and dancers love to dance to her because they get challenged. Very unique and difficult..

I am sure that it has a lot to do with it. I will not deny either that I lean much more to the routines that up-tempo music which seems to be rarely a part of her dances.

Looks like they kicked the whole audience out during the elimination so we really have to wait until Monday.

I have to imagine it is Lauren and Pasha, they are the only ones that make sense.

I think the more interesting thing will be to see where the audience is leaning in the Sabra/Lacey and Danny/Neil voting by seeing which were actually kept safe.

Sabra you go girl you are the complete package and not full of yourself like Lacey (although as said earlier her ass is just fine)

No way in hell she is 5' 9". With her wearing those heels, she's taller than Danny by 2-3" inches and Danny ain't short.
