So You Think You Can Dance, Season 12: Top Ten, Two Eliminated

E: Hey there, dance fans! Sorry to have been away for so long, and particularly for longer than I said I’d be.  It was a strange couple of weeks on the show, too – first an amazing top 16 episode featuring interesting pairings and a belated glut of personal information about the dancers, then a less satisfying (though still informative) top 14 episode topped by brutal cuts. 5,932 more words

So You Think You Can Dance Season 12: Eighteen Dancers, Two Eliminated

E: On the one hand, there was some pretty awesome dancing in this week’s episode. On the other, I can’t think when there’s been a greater miscarriage of justice in an elimination, or a routine where someone stumbled quite so badly as the person who (against all reason) did not get eliminated.  4,405 more words

So You Think You Can Dance: Meet the Top Twenty, Season 12

E: That was — well, I don’t know if it’s just that the judges were grumpy, but I didn’t love that as much as I usually do, and perhaps oddly, it’s not the often-choreography challenged street dancers who’re letting me down. 3,748 more words

E: Okay, I have to admit I was a little surprised at the outcome here.  Where I thought there might be balance, there isn’t. Two dancers talk themselves off the show. 3,754 more words

So You Think You Can Dance: Vegas Week No.1, Season 12

E:  So that’s a lot of ground to cover!  We’ve got the usual amount of brutal cuts, breakdowns, injuries and general disasters.  And we’ve got the editors’ mission – to give us a dramatic show – that sometimes sits at odds with my preference to meet the actual contestants.  2,586 more words
