The show felt heavy this week. The dancers looked really tired. Well, they danced 7 routines each so it’s understandable. Excluding the reruns, the only dance that really stood out to me was Christopher Scott and Travis Wall’s Elements. It was cool. The dancers looked like mythical gods. I thought they got the element assignment right. Kiki’s costume and make-up could have been better though.
NappyTabs opened the show with a fun, groovy number. The panel work was probably inspired by Kinjaz. They also put in their own spin on the Upeepz’ iconic ‘sit down’ stunt. This goes to show NappyTabs have been around feeding off inspiration and energy from everywhere. Paul, Marko and Allison shined in this routine. Lex and Kiki got the swag going on as well.
I’m happy that the legendary Mia Michaels has returned. She is a master in bringing out the dancers’ raw emotions and her choreography never fails to make the audience feel something. Tonight’s piece showcased the love between Taylor and Lex. It was sweet. There were a lot of smooches but hey they’re in love I don’t blame them. Lex could buff up a bit. The exhaustion probably got to him. I saw him struggling a bit to lift her up.
Anyway, seeing how the Top 4 performed today given the immense pressure, and taking into consideration their journey the whole season, I’m now rooting for Koine to win. Lex might be the most innovative and versatile coming into the show, but I felt more passion from Koine. She delivered more memorable routines.
I’m stoked to find out who wins next week. Not to mention, we get to see Logan and the other Top 10 dancers back again.
