SYTYCD: Performances

Billy has a brace on his knee this week, as if to say, "See? I wasn't faking! My knee totes hurts!" Liar.

Kent and Anya - Cha Cha by Jean-Marc Généreux. They've already done a Cha Cha together, and this one was just as inappropriate as the other. Because she looks 40 and he looks 12. It was fine. Anya looked SUPER weird -- her hair was awful and was her shirt supposed to come off? Because it seemed like the kind of costume layer that was meant to come off. Who knows.

Robert and Kathryn - Contemporary by Stacey. Haven't they already danced together 100 times too? It's OK though, they're pretty. It's a piece about going off to war - and at the end there was a twist when Kathryn is revealed to be the soldier. Duh, gays aren't allowed in the military. I didn't really feel it though - whether it was because of the choreography or the crappy Belinda Carlisle cover song, I don't know for sure. It was alright.

Adechike and Courtney - Jazz by Tyce. Not that I know what I'm talking about, but it didn't seem very jazzy to me. Other than that it was set to jazz music. It was a fun routine though. Courtney killed it, as usual.

Jose and Comfort - Hip Hop. It was a weird, slow, old song, but it worked. It should have fit Jose well with that kind of easy, cool style, but I didn't buy it 100%. As usual, Jose falls short.

Lauren and Allison - Broadway by Tyce. Oooo this should be great. And it was. They're both such great dancers, it was fun. It was a really fast-paced Broadway routine, it was kind of crazy and all over the place, but Lauren was really strong and great.

Billy and Ade - Contemporary by Stacey. It was another case of "too much damn story" (Stacey loves those) - with a homeless message this time - but they were great. Ade is so big and strong while Billy is smaller and has such great lines. It was pretty great, maybe the most mature Billy has been.

Jose and Kent - Broadway. It didn't do Jose any favors comparing the two side-by-side. But he was helped a little by the choreography, where they were 2 different character types. Still, when they were doing identical movements, Jose wasn't great. I liked how he did it, just he's nothing compared to Kent. The judges patted Jose on the head like a child, telling him he kept up just fine.

Lauren and Adechike - Foxtrot by Jean-Marc Généreux. It was really great. The judges had some problems with the technique, but I thought it was fabulous from a spectator's perspective. Lauren's so sparkly and graceful.

Billy and Robert - Bollywood. That was really cool. I thought they were pretty equally matched actually! Robert really seemed to have those hands down perfectly. Fun times.

Two people out tomorrow. I'll bet Jose and Adechike. But just as they're signing off -- Cat mentions that Lauren is with the medic. OH HOLY NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!! If Lauren's out, I'm out. We've lost too many good ones this year. Jesus.
