SYTYCD 15 Finale 🎊

I absolutely love this show! I had a blast watching the finale. Congratulations Hannahlei for winning Season 15! 🎊  It was well-deserved. 👏  I love the twists they threw in the group routines. It was truly a joyous celebration of dance and another wonderful season. Mandy Moore’s Top 10 routine articulated that joy perfectly. It was like watching the finale of a musical.  It made me feel very happy. 😊

It’s Slavik VS Hannahlei on SYTYCD!

I think it’s going to be Slavik versus Hannahlei in the finale. Hannahlei did not get a foot wrong all season but Slavik makes me want to root for him. His commitment to his partner and his effort stand out to me. Looking at my Top 3 routines tonight, there are more routines from Slavik.

Melanie & Slavik performed Travis Wall’s choreography to “Gun” by Mas Ysa.  This was fantastic in that they were clearly having a conversation with dance! It was so poetic. It’s a piece that feels like an excerpt from a Broadway musical or perhaps a dance-sical? I don’t know what you call it when there’s no singing, just music and dancing to tell the story.

More Emmys for SYTYCD please! 🏆💖

This week’s performances reaffirm why I love this show! 💖 I watched all the seasons. That was pure art! 😭  Thank you to everybody who made the episode possible. 👏 Thank you Lord for the lives and talents of these artists.🙌

My favorite was Mia Michael’s The Four Seasons. It made me tear up a bit. I love how Mia’s creations always feel genuine. She is excellent in tapping into raw emotions. I felt the peace and joy in this piece. Mia was able to showcase Darius’ essence perfectly.  He has great technique. He dances with such elegance. There is a sense of  innocence and dignity about him. Although I think he finds it hard to take on characters far from his own personality, which is why his performance comes out flat at times and we don’t feel the  chemistry with whoever his partner is. Take tonight’s Argentine tango for example.  I loved the choreography by Miriam & Leonardo. I felt Hannahlei but Darius’ presence tend to disappear at times.
