SYTYCD Top 16:

I am not going to put each youtube on here because frankly it takes a while and I don’t have a lot of time today! Here are my thoughts about each dance in the order that they ranked:

1. Randi & Evan – Contemporary

So everyone keeps saying the dancers this year are some of the best but I think I am going to have to disagree. This time last year I already had at least 4 or 5 dances that I loved and wanted to watch over and over…that is not the case this year. I thought this dance was really good but not AMAZING… At this point in the game the dance I rank number one should be amazing. Mia Michael’s always comes up with interesting themes for her dances and always sucks us in. I thought Randi and Evan danced this really well but agree with Nigel that the moves were simplistic for Mia. This means Mia probably dumbed it down some not that she couldn’t choreograph a more complex routine. I would give it 8.5 out of 10!

2. Melissa & Ade – Rumba

These two were sexy last night!!! I thought they did very well…still not as impressive as in years past. I would give it 8.25 out of 10; it was a very close second.

3. Kayla & Kapuno – Viennese Waltz

What a strong new partnership. I thought these two really melded well together…there lines looked good to me (not a professional). I would give them 8 out of 10.

4. Phillip & Jeanine – Broadway

I thought this Broadway routine was pretty good! I thought they both preformed it well. I definitely did think Jeanine’s performance was better but overall they both did well. However thinking about Courtney and Gev’s and Joshua & Katie’s Broadway routines last season it didn’t even compare.

This is an awful youtube but I couldn’t resist sharing the Broadway number by Joshua and Katee last year in the top 18!! I would have given it 9.5 out of 10!!

5. Brandon & Janette – Hip Hop

Compared to several hip hop dances in the past this one was mediocre. Brandon was actually a really good hip hopper but Janette was weird to watch. I give it 5 out of 10!

6. Caitlin & Jason – Paso Doble

I feel as if I was watching a completely different dance than the judges. Caitlin was completely fumbling all over the place and I didn’t feel a connection at all! I felt like I could see them counting and focusing so hard. Also I feel like Jason is a much better dancer then Caitlin yet each week she gets high praises and he gets the shaft! I would give 4.5 out of 10!

7. Vitolio & Auska – Jazz

I feel bad for them, Auska just really isn’t very good in other styles, and she looks so uncomfortable. I have a feeling if they are in the bottom three she will be sent home. I would give it 4 out of 10.

8. Carla & Jonathan – Hip Hop

It must be a curse to be in the top spot one week because so far whoever makes number one immediately falls to last place on my list the next week. Look out Randi and Evan fans!?!?!?! I was so looking forward to Carla doing hip hop and the whole thing was VERY underwhelming. What a boring routine and what a boring performance. I really didn’t take anything good out of it, seriously thought I would see that at a local dance recital. Giving it 3 out of 10!
