So, the new twist in tonight’s episode is that everyone is dancing once with an all-star, then later with a competitor. Which should be interesting, given that there are only two girls left, which must be making the guy all-stars completely ticked off. But none of that matters, because Alex is injured! Nigel says at best, he’s off this week, but at worst, it could be a ruptured Achilles tendon, which would definitely mean his time is up. And there he is in the audience, getting a little weepy, and this is just awful. For him to be such a front runner, then get the boot from the show for reasons that have nothing to do with his dancing for the SECOND time, egads, that’s rotten, rotten luck.
Mia gets booed for her comments â€“ but are the judges using a double standard?
The judges say the worst dancer isnâ€™t going home this week
Oh, yay, elimination night. It seems like a forgone conclusion that Melinda and her tap shoes are shuffling out the door, but we still have to sit through an hour of false tension and filler segments, so let the games begin!
Several performances are declared the best in 'SYTYCD' history â€“ but one definitely isnâ€™t
Tonight’s episode is all about inspiration, and slow motion, and black-and-white cinematography. Or something. And that all sounds very exciting, but I’m just hoping there is some kick-ass dancing. Only nine dancers are left, so it’s game on, whoo hoo!
Sookie and her new werewolf buddy Alcide take a roadtrip to Mississippi
The bottom three is a surprise â€“ but yet another girl goes home
A few thoughts about the opening number. One, Sonya may be the show’s best, or at least most creative, choreographer. Two, this is possibly the best top ten ever. And finally, it’s going to suck when voters eliminate all the girls and every opening number is a big sausage fest, at least when it comes to actual competitors. I’m just saying, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of love for the girls, and I don’t see that changing this week, either.
[Full recap of Thursday's (June 24) "So You Think You Can Dance" after the break...]
The judges take one dancer to task, but is their criticism fair?
Top Ten! Based on applause, or lack thereof, during the intro, Melinda and Cristina have their work cut out for them. But hey, you never know whose family is in town, so applause, shmapplause. So let’s get to it.
Vampire Kings, Nazi werewolves and a missing corpse. Just another episode of 'True Blood'...
It’s episode two of Season Three of "True Blood"! Which supernatural creature will get voted off the island tonight? Oh, wait, sorry, different show. But with all the shape-shifting and retractable-fang action going on among way too many cast members, it may actually be nice if some of those kill-offs the show producers have promised us come true soon.
Usher performs and debuts a Justin Bieber video, plus one dancer goes home
Okay, everyone, it’s results night, which means that, if you don’t like it, it’s all your fault. And you thought personal responsibility was dead and gone in this day and age. Go figure. Actually, since the judges step in and pick the worst of the worst, it’s not entirely your fault. But still.
One dancer delivers the best performance in 'SYTYCD' history
It’s time to get the dance party started! With auditions and the first sweeping, sometimes unfair (Anthony Burrell, we miss you!) cuts out of the way, we’re down to the final 11. I can’t say there’s a single truly weak link that’s emerged thus far, but then again, last week we were treated to a big love-in of an episode in which every dancer hoofed it in their chosen genre, while this week we’ll definitely see everyone pushed out of their comfort zones. But, given how strong this batch of dancers is, that may not result in the car wrecks of seasons past, so really, anything could happen. In other words, I wouldn’t place a bet on anyone. If anyone actually betted on this show. Which would be, honestly, a little weird, and probably not legal even in Vegas. So let’s begin!
Bill's gone missing, Jason's feeling guilty and the Vampire Queen is back
Man, it ain’t even three seconds into this here new season o’ "True Blood" and I’m already writin’ with a Southern accent. Does that mean that season three is gon’ be good, y’all? Let’s found out. Y’all.
