Unless Billy finds a way to really step it up, I think it's his week to go. I still think the two girls are safe for a few shows as they weed out a few guys. I'm guessing it'll be Billy this week, Adechike next week.

Perhaps Lauren can go all the way now that Alex is sidelined. I'm still hoping Robert or Adechike goes home tomorrow, though

Adechike - had a tough time with the salsa, rough around the edges, not too smooth. Much better dancing with Kent in the 2nd number.

Lauren - nice crowd-pleaser booty-shaker Tahitian number, but I think Billy outdanced her in their number together.

Jose - fish out of water in the first number, but totally in a small pond in the second number, but even so, I thought Domenic had the slight edge.

Robert - got an emotional number, and was solid throughout it, with but one stumble, but he recovered nicely, Allison did a slightly better job in the first number. The disco number was fun/exhausting to watch, but I was mainly focused on Kathryn, and since she didn't get dropped, I guess Robert did okay.

Billy - had a good night with both number, though I thought he was running out of gas in the first number towards the end, but dominated his number with Lauren in the second one.

Kent - seemed to be outdanced a bit by Neil in the baseball number (but still got a lot of praise by the judges. It was a draw in the second number with Adechike.

Poor Ashley, looks like she may be finished.

Tahitian dance was a bit silly with the over-the-top outfits, but Lauren shook it well. Very well.

Loved the Kent-Neil broadway. lol when Kent had the picture on the chair.

I think Robert did well with both dances.

I really didn't get all the praise that Jose got for his second number. "Schooled us"? Please. All he did was show that in one niche genre (that requires less overall skill than any other) he can hold his own. Could the other dancers have done as well in that genre? Probably not. But they can all completely "school" him in pretty much every other genre, even ones they aren't perfectly suited for.

Yeah, I actually thought Dominic nailed that routine and Jose seemed to be off a few times. Either way, b-boy routines are so much better with a crew of 4 or more versus a pair (a la ABDC).

Sad that Ashley is probably going to be gone, not just because she's one of my favorites but also because the dynamic of the show is getting a bit wonky. As much fun as some of the guy-guy numbers have been, I worry the choreographers will run out of ideas to keep that dynamic fresh, especially with the ratio so lopsided. Plus this leaves the male all-stars a bit out in the cold (especially Pasha, unless he gets paired with Lauren every week)... if the contestant pairings have to be predominantly male-male then the all-star pairings will have to utilize mostly female all-stars than males just to keep more of the traditional male-female partnering in the show.

I think the producers made a huge mistake in getting rid of Alexie week one. She wasn't perfect that first week, but I think she would have had a lot more to offer - and would have been more likely to grow - in the long run than Christina or (especially) Melinda, who both seemed like cannon fodder to me from the beginning.

Bottom three: Billy (again), Jose, and Ashely. Ashley didn't perform due to her injury.

Nigel said that he spoke with Ashley's doctor and she needs three to six weeks off, so she's out leaving only one girl in the bottom six.

This season is a mess.

Billy and José better thank their lucky stars that Alex and Ashley got injured, or they would be gone.

Go Lauren!

I know. Five guys and one girl. Ridiculous.

But the all-stars have been great and I think despite its problems, s7 had more better dances than s5 and s6.

Still looks like Ashley can do the tour, while Alex can't but he will get a chance to return next year. Still tough to watch them both leave way too early.

I think Jose is very good at the b-boy stuff, but honestly, I don't think he can do anything else. I would like him to leave before Billy does. Billy does need to work on his solos.

Rooting for Kent or Lauren to win now, since Alex and Ashley are out.

Finale perfomrance show is Aug 11, should be a top 3. Maybe Kent, Lauren, and Robert.

Exactly! He really needs to go home, so he can start getting some actual training. I think there is some talent there, but he has no real dancing skill yet. You can't get that on the street.

That would be the ideal finale for me, with Lauren taking the top prize. But if Kent wins, that would be cool, too.

Wow, first Alex--the best dancer, bar none--then Ashley, the best female dancer. They've got to be frustrated that they're left with this crew and only one girl in it. They're all very talented, don't get me wrong, but Alex and Ashley were the judges favorites by far IMO.

I'll still enjoy the season, but wow, this show has taken a beating.
