The top 20 of the so you think you can dance’s season 9 performed this week. Four of them will be cut next week! Too soon, I say. I wish the dancers get to stay 5 weeks before any of them gets cut. Viewers can still vote each week. But the votes will be aggregated so that come the fifth week of performances, the dances are ranked and the bottom 10 get cut. This way, the dancers will get more chances of showing their talent, their personality. The current format puts some of the dancers at the mercy of the choreographer. And talented as the choreographers are, sometimes, they miss too to the detriment of the dancer. 😦

Anyway, this week’s top 20 performance is freaking amazing! Christopher Scott is a genius! Choreography was superb. Use of props was seamless. And the dancers he highlighted were great. Except for one. Hehe. The stepper guy, I forgot his name – what he did in his “solo” was so-so. It didn’t really add any value, I think, to the entire performance. Contrast that with Amelia’s and Chohan’s!

Must watch performances this week – Travis Wall’s unchained melody and Jason Gilkison’s paso doble! Nigel was right in saying that Travis’ choreography is really mature, well-thought out. Travis uses the intricacies of the music to his advantage. He lets it enhance his artistry! The paso, too, was spectacular! The best paso doble so far in the history of so you think you can dance! Right, Mary Murphy?

I can’t wait for next week’s performance. I wonder, too, how they will do the cut.

So you think you can dance is happiness! 🙂
