Let's talk about this here.  I love watching the show but also love chatting about it w/ you all. Who's watching? Top 20!  I'm really liking everyone so far, especially the "unusual" dancer group and the ballet guys but they're all so amazing. If I had to pick least favorite, it would probably be Barbie bookend latin dancers.

Anyone still watching this?  I'm liking quite a few of the dancers right now.  I thought Cole was scary, in a good way, in Addiction.  Lindsay and Whitney are hanging on because???  I don't get why the judges love them so much.  They're just all hair.  I do like both ballet guy and girl left--Chehon and ??? I'm glad they saved George.  I did not like the remake of the Mia Michaels routine theme.  Cyrus--good at what he does but really doesn't compare to a dancer like Twitch who could do different genres.  Or, Cole. Cole seems to be able to do all styles well.

I agree about Lindsey and Whitney being all hair. I kind of think they're more or less the same dancer. :smileytongue:

Last week seems like a lifetime ago but I think George left, right?

Looking forward to tonight. I got permission from DH to watch tonight's episode rather than wait. It really just ruins it if I find out results before watching the show.

I'm really liking the ballernia--Eliana?  I loved the routine w/ Alan Wang (Wong?).  With the Olympic break, it seems like this show has been on forever!  I love the DVR. I have no idea when the show is on. It just shows up and I can watch it.  I really like Cole and Chehon, too. I have this fear that one of the Barbie Bookend Ballroom dancers will win. It would be like that season when Ashley and Ryan made it to the final four. That was the worst season ever.

I think Eliana or Cole will win.  They are just so spot-on every time.  

I was thankful they sent one of the Barbie Bookend Ballroom dancers home.  (On a completely unrelated note, why do all Mormons from Utah look like they just stepped out of a Stepford toothpaste commercial?  It's unnerving.)  I really enjoyed Will's routine last night.  

I'm a little surprised Tiffany is still around.  She's a great dancer but in general, not exciting.  Although, her solo last night was fantastic.  

Jean - did you see Ryan on the show last night?  I kept thinking "Oh no, I hope they don't bring Porn Face back too."  

And, a costume note: it really bugs me when the designers don't "match" the contestants.  Case in point: Tiffany and Ade's performance (which I did not really care for but she got a standing ovation from the judges).  She was wearing a shimmery purple sequined thing while he was in two shades of gray.  It just looks strange and I have a lot of trouble seeing the connection when they don't even look like they belong together.

Eliana definitely. If she doesn't win, I'll be seriously disappointed. Cole is one of my favorite but there's something about Chehon that I really like more.  Maybe it's just how he talks but that power he has when he dances is beautiful.  I think Whitney and Lindsay were essentially the same so they split the votes. It'll be intersting to see if Whitney does better now that people can't vote for her bookend.  I would guess they'd all migrate over to her.  If she beats Eliana, I'll be really annoyed.  Tiffany was good but not memorable.  Will was this season's Kent, cutesy puppy dog. I didn't mind him, he was a good dancer but I'm glad he was the one to go.

I missed Ryan but probably wouldn't recognize him if I saw him. What was he doing?  Was he one of the All Star pairs?  

I didn't think about the costumes but now that you mention it, I'll have to check it out.  I love Ade and think it was a gift that Tiffany got him.  I didn't get Chehon's tango but everyone seemed to love it.  Alex and Eliana's Bang Bang last week has been my favorite so far.  I'd love to see Twitch do a routine with Cyrus! I know they're different styles but it would be fun.

Seriously, Cole in the final four? I really like him, love him in his style but what more can he do? He barely does any other style, was lucky never to get ball room (they used to pick the genre but now it's all so contrived--we know they pick the styles for the dancer now). Cole could to it all.  So glad Whitney didn't make the top 4.  I want Eliana to win. While Chehon is an amazing dancer, he's just bad at some other styles. I think Eliana does all of them well.

Yeah, I hear you.  Cole is so talented but I feel like his style has gotten boring.  Eliana is my favorite also.  I think she'll win.

I thought it was funny how Cole ended up with that same personality dance--how many times did he play cold hearted evil guy?  I would have liked to see him do hip hop or something more fun.  Tiffany is a good dancer but your typical dance studio good dancer, perky, sweet, hard working.  Eliana has more edge to her. I also love that she's a ballerina but does other styles so well, unlike Chehon who looks awkward doing other things.  He's so sweet, though, and his accent is cute.  I love how Cyrus seems to embrace what he's doing and is like a little kid with it all.  He could be so tough but he's not.

I think the right choices were made...  And I liked that they chose a guy and a girl.  I often think the guys get the short shrift on this show only because the women can emote so much more and they have better costumes.  

I positively LOVED the Cyrus/Twitch routine.  I was so glad they brought it back for the finale.  We also loved the animation route with Twitch, Comfort, Cyrus and Christopher Scott.  

I am, however, sad that it's over.  I'm hoping they'll do two seasons a year again but I don't think they are.

I agree--they were my favorite two. Eliana, I think, would have won if there was just one but it was good that they had two. I loved Cyrus and his style and enthusiasm but he wasn't good at other styles, as much as they tried.  I liked this season and the dancers.  And, they have a great collection of all stars, too.  Who could go wrong paired w/ Twitch, Alex Wong or Alison Hoecker?
