So You Think You Can Dance Results: Who's Out? Who's Still In?

by at . Comments

I was expecting that the voting process would shift from the judges to America, but this season Nigel, Mary, and Neil Patrick Harris continued the eliminations.

This is definitely giving a buffer zone to the talented dancers that have fewer fans on So You Think You Can Dance. So who survived to dance another week?

Here's a rundown of last night's results show ...

SYTYCD Top 10

Two of the top 10 were sent packing last night ...

Group Routine: Broadway (Josh Vergas) - We got another routine that was a bit too Fosse that really didn't work. The girls weren't synchronized and the guys had Jess in the front mugging for the camera. The coupling section was poor and the tricks looked more like time wasters then any form of cool intricate choreography

Results Part 1: Mitchell, Tadd, and Melanie - Mitchell had a lackluster Broadway routine and was obviously part of the bottom four. Mitchell marks his fourth appearance in the bottom, though the first was because of injuries. Melanie managed to overcome some of the stigmas of a slow Viennese Waltz and losing Marko. According to Nigel, Tadd out danced Comfort, this is enough to argue that we need a new hip-hop female. Both Tadd and Melanie were safe.

Results Part 2: Marko, Sasha, Clarice - Marko opened the show with a sexy samba and benefited from having Chelsie Hightower for increased exposure; Marko was also last to perform his solo last night. He was easily safe. Sasha had one of the best Lyrical Hip-Hop routines, topping her last Lyrical Hip-Hop "Coming Home.” As much as Clarice was last and had an explosive Bollywood routine, Neil mentioned that he never connected with her. Clarice was in the bottom and Sasha was safe.

Results Part 3: Jess, Jordan, Ricky, Caitlynn - Jess was criticized for mugging for the camera, and the performance was all about how beautifully Kathryn moved. Ricky had another nightmare routine after following his zombie "Fashion" routine, on the second look; Ricky was very supportive of Allison. Jess was safe and Ricky was in the bottom four. Ricky now was also in his fourth appearance in the bottom showing that both Ricky and Mitchell should be eliminated soon. Caitlynn had the first Argentine Tango of the season and it marvelous to watch. Jordan had a very strong contemporary performance and was fighting. She had the disadvantage of performing second and having her solo in the middle. Jordan was in the bottom and Caitlynn was safe.

Musical Performance: Daniil Simkin (Ballet) - There was something adorkable about the whole routine where it looked almost too easy. The "drunken Frenchman" storyline was easy to grasp and his leaps were insane.

Solos

Clarice - The performance lacked a bit of something outside of the "Look at me, I'm pretty." I couldn't stop looking at the bow on her butt, there was no reason for it to be there and it looked like one you would put on a present.

Mitchell -A really cool routine involving a piece of fabric and proved his athleticism. Even though he fell out of his turn a bit, he had the same physicality he always does.

Jordan - Another slow routine which displayed her powerful extensions. The song was one of the most fitting songs as well where the lyrics kept saying "don't you let me go, let me go tonight" almost as a plea to the judges. The judges already emphasized how much they loved her.

Ricky - A performance where he was battling for a win. While the judges don't respond positively on back flips it was great visual for the audience. Ricky and Mitchell are a bit interchangeable so either elimination wouldn't faze me.

Musical Guest: Blush ft. Snoop Dogg - Does Snoop Dogg get paid to just say hello these days? Blush seemed like one of those attempts for an Asian group to succeed. The Wonder Girls tried before, I'm waiting for 2NE1 to hit America first. Someone was off from the backing track and I couldn't get past that.

Good Luck Guys

The final verdict

After the commercial break, Nigel announced that the votes were unanimous, so the background conversation was probably just Neil talking about his involvement with The Smurfs.

Nigel emphasized that contestants have been in the bottom before, including the apparently untouchable Twitch. Have we all forgotten that Twitch lost? The point was that Nigel cut Mitchell and Clarice in one quick swoop.

Did they get it right? Comment below!

I was blown away by Sasha's dance with Twitch last week. I have been watching SYTYCD since it began and this the first time I saved a dance on my DVR and watched it over and over. Go Sasha!!

They got it right. Jess is brilliant. Tadd was so messy in the hip hop routine he didn't do it any justice. To say he even kept up with Comfort is an insult.

Expected Mitchell and Jess to go, mostly because they lack the right chemistry w/the audience. NOT a HATER so don't even go there. Obviously, I don't think it should have to be 1 male and 1 female who leave each week. It's getting harder each week but SOME of the solo "dance for your life" choreography is repetitious and not very creative. Several Emmy worthy choreography pieces on Wed. though- with Sasha, Melanie, & Tadd. Loved the tango. The very FIRST Ballywood routine on SYTYCD will always be my fave but love 'em all.

Love, love, loved that Argentine Tango. That was the best Tango I have ever seen on this show. Sasha did an amazing job with Twitch. I hope she walks away with it this season.

I love Jess!! I also dont understand why so many people hate him!

Wow, cant believe how many people dont like Jess - he is BRILLIANT - he floats and makes dancing look soooooo easy. He brings the best of what stage/broadway was and is and adds the modern in. There hasnt been a dancer like him ever really. And Melanie IS something special, yes, her smile is a little overpowering but this is about dance, and she is dance.

I agree with clarice but I think Jess should be in the bottom in stead of Ricky and Jess should have gone home in stead of mitchel.

I can't stand Melanie, I don't see why they think she's so special. The way she smiles and laughs with her open mouth and squinty eyes, drives me crazy. But I have a feeling, she'll prob. win since the judges love her so much.

Yeah I'm not fond of Jordan or Clarice. I feel the Jordan always does the same stuff. And Clarice really just looks like a pretty face. I also don't like Jess though. He annoys the living daylights out of me. I dunno why

I think the judges got it wrong Jordon and Jess should have been cut.
