SYTYCD, top 12

November 25, 2009

I really don’t have any time to write this (I’m stealing time from cleaning), but I was so angry about something last night I had to write.

For weeks Ashleigh has been floating along on the fumes of Jakob‘s firey performances and last night was just the last straw for me. I think she was fine in the cha-cha, but here’s their first dance:

She LITERALLY walked and rolled around the stage while Jakob was incredible. Then he picked her up some. Then the judges completely praise HER over and over and over while the rest of the girls are killing themselves actually dancing, getting small fractions of the love they lavishly present to Ashleigh.

But I have no doubt she’ll get into the top 10. She’s like the Comfort of this season for me (seriously). I’m excited to see how she does with a new partner (mostly because I think she’ll be exposed for the talent moocher she is.)

Onto what I liked: Kathryn and Legacy‘s Waltz, Ellenore and Ryan‘s Broadway (the only B’way I’ve ever liked on this show.), and Karen and Victor‘s Tango, even though he creeps me out.

Even though it was fantastic, I think this couple is a shoe-in for bottom 3 because of the disasterous hip hop and they have (sadly in Karen‘s case) consistently been in the bottom.

Also in the bottom: Noelle and Russell, then who? I think it should be Mollee and Nathan. But we’ll see. Every week I’ve done predictions I’m 2/3, I feel like tonight will be the same way. That last couple could be almost anyone.

I’m short on time because I just caught the routines on YouTube today.

The Best: Ellenore and Ryan. AND the real star, Travis Wall. I’ve loved everything he’s done.

The Worst: Karen and Kevin

The Rest: I loved Legacy and Kathryn’s piece, but they are by far my favorite couple.  Ashleigh really surprised me in hip hop. I agreed that the Blackbird music distracted me from the dancing but I loved the music. I did like Nathan and Mollee, but I don’t think they performed as strong as the routine demanded for it to look great.

And the bottom 3: Karen and Kevin, Channing and Victor, and I’m not sure about #3- Noelle and Russell? Or despite the great evening they had, will it be Ryan and Ellenore? I hope not, but just sayin’ they’ve consistently been in the bottom…

I guess we’ll see soon enough!
