(or "Sometimes It's Not Nice to Put on Daniel Powter on the Golf Course
During a Round") - June 21|
So You Think You Can Dance has 18 dancers left. It's the same like last week,
and it's still 2 hours long. There's a lot more routines to go through, so let's
Along with Nigel, Shane Sparks and Mia Michaels will be judging. For the funnier
moments, we start with Shane, and he picks a girl from the Chicago auditions who
threw up. Then, we go to Mia who chose the gender chameleon who flipped the wig
out, and finally Nigel who chose on a guy nicknamed "Sex." We have a returning
vistor named "Hawk" of the 6-step crew. He gets lots of support from his fans
since he's been on the show. The rest of the 6-step crew are out to perform
"Canned Heat" by Jamiroquai. Some did robotic work, while others breakdanced,
even with last year's finalist, Ryan Confriedo. Now let's get down to business.
The couples remain the same like last week, but they choose a style at random.
And we're off!
Up first, Travis & Martha doing...Krump? Lil' "C" teaches them a lesson about
Krump and what it's like. Now they'll know what's it's like on-stage doing "Clap
Back" by Ja Rule. Both did a floor move, and threw out arm & foot moves
throughout the number. Martha did a go-though and a crawl under, and both did a
bang touch at the end. Did the Krumpness happen?
What Shane Said: Martha wasn't doing this for Travis.
What I said: Travis is the best krumper to ever see on this show. Krumping is a
hard thing to do when you are on national TV. Shall we move along?
The 2nd couple is Jessica & Jaymz doing...a Foxtrot. They'll work with Mary
Murphy as they get ready to do "Why Don't You Do Right." Jessica almost did a
split, and both spun around. Jessica did a mid-air spin and she did a foot drag
later on. Jessica also did a mid-air copter spin and a flip & go-through to end
it. How did that go?
What Mia said: I thought it was really mature.
What I said: Really mature? They make a good couple with moves that are prefect
for the ballroom.
Next up, Ivan & Allison doing...Hip-hop. They'll be the first couple to actually
work woth 2 choreographers...Olisa & Cicely. Now let's see what they'll do to
"Touch It" by Busta Rhymes. Everything was cool. Both did a lie-down move while
they did some arm moves at the halfway point. After a few swerves, both did an
indian sit-down to end it. Were they standing or sitting on this routine?
What Shane Said: I couldn't wait to see Ivan as a hip-hop dancer.
What I said: Ivan is a good hip-hop dancer to end up safe come tomorrow.
And next is Julia & Dimitri taking on...Samba. They'll work with Mark Weiss, and
they'll now to go work doing "Mas Que Nada." Julia did spins & a dip, and even a
leg hook and a dip at the end, while both did latin flair all through the
routine. Did that happen?
What Mia Said: It was absolutely dreadful.
What I said: Julia tried to samba, but couldn't correct any lines. Dimitri tried
to outlast it.
Going up next is Natalie & Musa doing...contemporary. They'll be working with
Tavares Wilson and they're now up doing "Closer" by Goapele. They start out
linked, and then got apart to dance later. Both did some floor work, and even
ballet jumps. Natalie even went on top of Musa. When they came together, Natalie
did a slow lie-down while Musa was kneeled to end it. Was it an art form?
What Mia said: The chemistry was amazing and Musa embraced & acheived it.
What I said: When they go for a contemporary routine, you better watch out for
Up 6th, Heidi & Ryan getting...Pop?! What is this? Anyhooldes, Tavares Wilson
will bethe 2nd to work with them. Now to "Walk Away" by Kelly Clarkson, Heidi
fake-slapped Ryan, but both did a swerve. Both were on their knees, and Heidi
did a hang & circle. In the end, Heidi gets Ryan away. Did that sizzle or
What Nigel said: Neither of you looked right.
What I said: Am I thinking Pop or something out of high school drama class? I'll
And up is Ashlee & Ben doing...American Jive. Will it work this time? Mary
Murphy will try to coach them and do it. To "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry "The
Killer" Lee Lewis, Ben jumped over Ashlee while both did kicks. Ashlee did a dip
& rise move, and even a lawnmower move. Ben mimicked the guitar on Ashlee's leg,
while both spun around. Ben dragged back while Ashlee splits near the end. Did
it work this time?
What Shane said: I didn't like that.
What I said: I actually liked what the Jive was about. It was fun.
Number 8 has Alexzandra & Jason doing...Hip-hop. Being the 2nd to work with
Olisa & Ciclely, they'll go old school with "Wrath Of Kane." Both worked it with
energy including a split by Jason, and a jump to split by him again to end it.
Was it really old school?
What Mia said: It praised the almight god.
What I said: Amen to That! These guys can do good on the floor.
Last up, Benji & Donyelle getting ready for...Cha-Cha. As they work with Mark
Weiss, how well will they do to "Cuchi-Cuchi?" Well, Donyelle did a dip & leg
squirm, and Benji did a slide through with a boot by Donyelle to end it. Was
What Shane said: That's what's up!
What I said: It can be the best cha-cha to ever witness in history.
