The boys are really good this season. The judges probably had a hard time deciding who to keep.
I didn’t get to see Cole Mills’ latin ballroom audition but this contemporary duet with Jaime was breathtaking. Well, it’s a no brainer since the great Travis Wall choreographed it. I also liked Travis Wall’s piece that Kyle performed. Too bad he didn’t make the cut. I hope he comes back again to try next year.
Slavik Pustovoytov is a new discovery for me. He didn’t get much air time during the auditions and the Academy. His expertise is hip-hop but I haven’t seen him dance solo yet. However, this sultry Tyce Diorio’s jazz piece really made him stand out enough to convince me as a fan to put him on my list too. He stood his ground next to the brilliant Allison Holker. He is my second pick for the boys. Cole only won by a very small margin.
I want to see them dance in their own style soon so I can more definitively decide who to root for this season. But so far, I’m Team Ballroom!
Hurray! I finally caught up with the So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) Season 15 episodes. This is my all-time favorite TV show. I watched all the previous seasons and enjoyed every single one of them.
My favorite audition this year was from this ballroom trio. The music was addicting. They had a storyline I could follow. The choreography was hot and these dancers committed to it. Magda Fialek is my favorite girl this season.
I also loved her contemporary duet with Robert, which was choreographed by Mandy Moore to the acoustic version of What About Us during Academy Week.
On the other hand, Hannahlei is my dark horse. She is not my favorite but I think she’s versatile and will probably do really well on the show. Her audition was really strong and she nailed every round in the Academy. She reminds me a bit of Koine from Season 14.
I’m excited to see more performances from these two!
I’ll comment on the guys after watching next week’s episode. I didn’t get to see all of them dance yet.
