That was the best disco routine in the history of the show to date! Adding in some jazz into it made it magical. I added it to my list of favorite group routines. Thank you SYTYCD for giving us these exciting genre fusions!
This week was a chance for Robert (to show what he can do), Kiki (to show he can nail hip hop), all-star Cyrus (to dance his style), and Sydney (to show her versatility) to redeem themselves. We also get an opportunity have a glimpse of Lex’s brilliance through his solo. Sad how his couple routines are not helping him highlight his mad skills to a point that I think the show is downplaying him a bit to give others a chance.
Koine, Mark, and Kiki also delivered great solos. Koine is a fighter. She is showing us that she wants it and that she is consistent. Kiki is proving how good he is in his style. Mark is bridging jazz music and breaking which is beautiful. He had a little Broadway swag there.
My top 2 favorite couple routines tonight were Sean Cheeseman’s African jazz piece to Speaking in Tongues II performed by Koine and Marko,
and Al Blackstone’s Broadway piece to The Man That Got Away performed by Taylor and Robert.
These two couples are less controversial and more ‘quiet’ than the others but they are strong and consistent pairs. Marko and Koine’s number reminded me what an emotionally captivating dancer Marko is even during his season. Same with Robert, he always draws the audience into the story.
On the other hand, Logan needs to come out more. Allison is such a star that she’s eating him up on stage.
Sydney, Dassy, and Lex will probably be in the bottom next week.
