So You Think You Can Dance Results – Allison & Ryan Eliminated

July 27, 2006 09:06 PM by Joe Blackmon

Allison_holkerHost Cat Deeley says that there were 10 million votes cast for the final 8 dancers in So You Think You Can Dance.  Cat calls Natalie Fotopoulos and Donyelle Jones to the stage.  Cat tells Natalie that she is in the bottom two girls and tells Donyelle that she is safe.  Cat calls Allison Holker and Heidi Groskreutz to the stage.  Cat tells Heidi that she is safe, which means Allison is in the bottom two girls. 

Cat calls Benji Schwimmer and Ryan Rankine to the stage.  Cat tells Benji that he is safe and tells Ryan that he is in bottom two boys.  Cat calls Travis Wall and Ivan Koumaev to the stage.  Cat tells Travis that he is one of the bottom two boys, which means Ivan is safe.

Even though the vote has already been cast, each of the bottom four dancers gets another chance to perform for America.  Natalie dances to “Veins” by Charlotte Martin.  Ryan dances to “Just Fine” by Chris Brown.  Allison dances to “Feeling Good” by Michael Buble.  Travis dances to “Gotta Get Thru This” by Daniel Bedingfield.   

Before the results are announced, Busta Rhymes performs “I Love My Chick” and “In The Ghetto.”  Also, Nigel Lythgoe announces that the So You Think You Can Dance Tour is officially on, and tickets will go on sale August 12.  Cat calls the bottom two girls to the stage and announces that Allison Holker is going home.  Allison gets one last chance to perform and dances to “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell.  Cat calls the bottom two boys to the stage and announces that Ryan Rankine is going home.  Ryan gets one last chance to perform and dances to “Ain’t No Way” by Chris Brown.

    Donyelle has gotta go home, she is not worthly of the top 6!

    What a huge dissapointment this is worse than Chris Daughtry getting voted of American Idol. I hope the talent scouts and producers in hollywood see that this is all wrong they need to approach Allison and give her a career as she was the best. THIS PROVES THE FACT THAT THE REALITY SHOWS ARE TURNING INTO A POPULARITY CONTEST. DONT WORRY ALLISON CELINE DIONS SHOWS WILL COME TO YOU IF THEY KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR THEM.

    Ryan and Natalie should have been voted off. Can’t believe Alison didn’t receive enough votes!

    Now, little kids…no need to be hostile, and blame Donyelle!!! Bottom line, she is a great dancer, and I would love for the “critics” to go out and do half as well as Donyelle…Do not judge if you can’t. And what the hell is up with this weight issue. She is normal…So what if she is not stick thin. Donyelle is extremely versatile, which is more than I can say for a lot of the contestants. If you are not all professional dancers, who is anyone to sit there and say that her technique and form are not great…First of all, her speciality is hip hop and jazz. Hip hop requires no “real” technique, which is the reason why Donyelle is more flexible than a lot of other contestants. Now, I do personally believe that Natalie should have went home over Allison, b/c Allison is great, but what is the Donyelle bashing gonna do…Is it gonna bring back Allison..NO! So… let us try to move on with the rest of the show. The only reason ppl have a problem with Donyelle is b/c of her weight…FLAT OUT!!! We all know that she is a good dancer, so there is no need to try to hate on her. This show is about being a great dancer, in many genres, as well as be entertaining (it is on TV for a reason), and who has a great personality that lights up the stage…Apparently Donyelle is doing just that or she would not be safe week after week after week.
    Even I will admit that yesterday was not her best performance, but why you get rid of her b/c of one bad performance. Gimme a break!!! I’m sure Americans are not all professional dancers, but we do know who we like, and just because youe opinion isn’t the same, does not mean anyone should bash her!!! She is great! Donyelle…keep your head up. Yo are great

    GO DONYELLE, and Allison good luck with everything, because you are extremely talented as well!!!

    I will no longer be watching the show. I am truly disapointed in the fact that Allison was voted off. This will affect the ratings. We are watching it in Canada and can’t believe that America voted her off. We thought that she would win it. She will be picked up somewhere in a company somewere. As a dancer myself I am shocked that she would be voted off and frankly I don’t want to watch anymore.

    I, personally, am fine with the eliminations this week. I think Natalie is a phenomenal dancer, but I think Heidi and Benji will win it. I loven them too. :)

    omg!!!! Alli shouldn’t have gone home….she was THE BEST on that show…..Nat should’ve gone home…………she didn’t do well last night…..Alli did GREAT last night…..that hip hop number had me in tears………and tonight i was in tears for another reason……sadness……
    Donyelle is a good dancer, and shouldn’t be bashed, but she still isn’t as good as Allison is…..and only huge Donyelle fans can disagree with that…………
    Allison & Ivan were the best/cutest couple on there, and if Ivan doesn’t win it, i will be even more pissed……i can’t decide whether to watch it again, cause i want Ivan to win it now that Alli is gone…..and as u can see, they were VERY close, cause he was SUPER excited when they were paired up again…….and he almost cried on the show too…..he was as shocked as I was………i’ve been crying non-stop for the past 2 hours…………SYTYCD will not get good ratings from now on……..b/c the BEST dancer on there was sent home tonight………..i believe America made a terrible decision….and it was EXTREMELY WRONG!!!!!!!!!

    I can’t believe that Allison went home??? and Natalie is still there? Come on!!! It isn’t that Natalie isn’t good… but not as good as Allison in my opinion. But I am sure that you haven’t seen the end of Allison.

    Go Ivan that’s all that matters. Donyelle needs to go next, along with Travis. The final 2 will be Heidi and Ivan, and Ivan will win.

    July 27th, 2006 at 11:44 pm

    I’m a lyrical and contemporary dancer and teacher, so I’m always picking apart technical things. HOWEVER, I’m so sad for Allison. Technically, she was the most professional looking. She was extremely versatile, which were characteristics that Heidi and Natalie didn’t have. The whole time I thought she’d definitely be one of the final two. Benji and Heidi are good together, but honestly- Heidi only excels at ballroom. Think about HOW WELL Allison has done, in everything. I think it should have been Benji and Allison in the end. Donyelle is my favorite, but is too innovative and honestly, too hot for the competition. This show isn’t set up to allow a hip hop dancer to win.

    America got it wrong tonight, Heidi or Natalie should’ve been cut.

  15. Tim Holmes Says:
    July 27th, 2006 at 11:52 pm

    I agree, Maxxie. I think Natalie is great. She blew me away with her beautiful solo the other night. Not to mention, she hasn’t been as lucky as some of the other dancers. She has drawn some tough routines and has been partnered with some pretty one-dimensional dancers and still managed to make them look good and carry them through.

    Allison is a very good dancer. The problem may have been that, because she is so young, her dancing still lacks a bit of emotional maturity. She will continue to grow and improve as a dancer with time and experience. Like Nigel said, she should also work on her facial expressions. JMO

    wow….
    Poor Alison.
    Natalie is a great dancer but Allison shouldn’t have been kicked off.
    MY heart skipped a beat right before the said Ryan’s name.
    THANK GOD TRAVIS IS STILL ON.
    Travis is a Phenominal dancer.
    man…..
    I LOVED that contemperary dance with Heidi and Travis!

    I will still watch the show.
    I dont think the ratings will go down.
    In America Idol when Chris was kicked off, the ratings were jsut as good.

    hate to say it but thats show business.

    Don’t worry, Allison will be just fine.

    I am not surprised at all with the eliminations tonight. I didn’t want to see any of them go since they are all great dancers but I really do feel like Natalie dances with more passion and feeling. I have to admit that Allison’s final dance had me tears, especially when she danced up against Ivan. MAJOR TEAR JERKER! I like Donyelle, Heidi’s okay (when she’s not doing her bitter-beer face), but I think Natalie will be there in the end. As for the guys, I think Benji will be the one to take it. He’s so diverse!!! The other guys are really great but I am a major Benji fan. I absolutely love this show! I can’t wait for next week.

  30. Anne Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 2:25 am

    Today the strongest dancers in the competition were Allison and Natalie and Ryan and Travis, all of whom were wrongfully put in the bottom 4. Not saying Benji isn’t strong, I love that guy to pieces! But, Ryan is a strong dancer, although i have no strong objection to his being sent home, other than resent towards the fact that personality counts for too much, in my opinion. I do, however, object greatly to Allisons departure. She was the best performer and strongest of the girls, and might I add, much stronger and versatile than both Donyelle AND Heidi. Finally, I think America has got it wrong, in putting Travis in the bottom 2, when clearly, he is the strongest male dancer in the competition. What a dreamboat.

  31. Sheena Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 2:34 am

    I was a bit suprised by Allison’s elimination tonight, I really expected Nat to go because of her knee injury and her unfortunate lack of chemistry with Ryan. I was elated, however, that she didn’t leave because she is my favorite female dancer by far. It sucks that she was in the bottom two with Allison because I think they were the two strongest girls, and they obviously are very close; but there’s a star quality that Nat has that paired with her amazing talent is undeniable. Allison is four years younger and it takes a lot more for her to pull you into a performance. Think about it, even when Natalie has a partner that’s struggling you can’t take your eyes off her. As for Heidi, yeah she did well this week but she had an unfair advantage. She was partnered with her cousin whom she’s been dancing with for years!Of course the chemistry and timing is going to be excellent. But remember when she was with Ryan it was always hit or miss with her, normally miss.

  32. Truth Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 3:47 am

    Truth:

    Donyelle is fat.
    Most of the women watching her on Tv are fat too.

    Therefore Donyelle gets a free ride to the top because fat girls have dreams too. The dream of sitting around and voting for another fat girl. Or maybe it’s not a dream at all…maybe it’s just the fat girls are all home watching Tv.

    I’m sure there will be plenty of flack over this message, but it’s the pure truth of the matter.

    So Allison, sorry you lost out to the fat girl, but hey.. America votes with what they can relate to, it is a crying shame that relation is weight and not talent, because your talent.. was the best on the show.

  33. Micah Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 4:02 am

    I can’t believe Allison was sent home. That was really depressing. I think that she and Benji are the best dancers in this season’s competition. Now that Allison’s gone, I hope that Donyelle beats out both Heidi and Natalie. She is so much more versatile than them and has the best facial expressions. I don’t think people should judge Donyelle because of her weight. So now that Allison is gone, I hope Donyelle wins because she deserves to more than Heidi and Natalie.

  34. Mz_M Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 4:23 am

    The person that I wish would be voted off is CAT!!!! I hope this women is NOT going to host the tv show next season!
    She has the MOST annoying voice. I fast forward through her talking…ugh…she makes me ill!!!
    Now, to the results. I thought Allison was better than Natalie. I was surprised that she was voted off, however, only 1 person can win in the end and I sure hope it is Benji. He is just the GREATEST little dancer and so humble.

  35. Mike Says:
    July 28th, 2006 at 4:26 am

    Donyelle is NOT fat… she is just fat for a DANCER! She has moves, but struggles getting up off the floor, and her partners nearly spilt a side trying to lift her up. It is obvious the routines she is involved in stay clear of excess lifts because of her weight. Also, no flips or elevation moves at all. Allison was the most talented female in the competition (and the hottest, -there I said it). Benji should win the whole thing though, based on talent alone, but adding in his personality seals the deal. I think any more girls who defend Donyelle’s weight only do so to justify their own excess mass. Large girls love to champion their own kind, but this is not a “she reminds me of me” contest. Its a dance contest! She should be gone just to save the guys’ backs for future career opportunites.

I am about to cry and i know my mom will cry. I also have a HUGGGEE problem with Travis being in the bottom two! I reallly want him to win!

    TOO BAD SO SAD!!! Donyelle and Benji should be in the final two. You people suck and should have voted. You can cry your eyes out, poor you for not voting! HA!! And by the way, I’m not fat, never have been never will be but completely support DONYELLE and BENJI 100%. So how about that Donyelle haters??? Allision will be fine and so will Ryan. But for now, the show must go on and on it will. Just because you are sad and think that no one will watch the show any more because you won’t, you are wrong. Many people will watch it even more and get off their butts to vote. GO DONYELLE AND BENJI!!!

    July 28th, 2006 at 7:34 am

    i don’t understand getting angry because the person you like is out. so, just because you like them they should win?? and if they don’t, you boycott the show? obviously others simply didn’t agree with your pick. i’ve had my favorite get sent home on various shows tons of times, i never cry about it. that’s the nature of these shows, the contestants know it, and most of them go on to live happy and meaningful lives despite their unfortunate demise in a stupid, cheesy, gimicky, reality, elimination show.

    That said:

    GO HEIDI!!
    GO NATALIE!!
    GO TRAVIS!!
    GO BENJI!!

    I can not believe Alliosn went home. I thought Natalie should of went home instead. i did pick up the phone for alliosn and it was not busy and all these people are saying she shouldn’t of went home. Pick up the phone and vote. That’s all you have to do. NEVER EVER KNEW THAT BENJI AND HEIDI ARE COUSINS. I was always a benji fan, but never a Heidi fan and their related. BNEJI, I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE SO HOT! America got the guy right to go home Ryan or Travis. HOORAY! It was Ryan and not Travis. When Cat put Travis and Ivan together. I knew Travis was in it, but not going home. i was screaming when Cat said “Ivan you are Safe” because he and Benji are my 2 favorites. I like Travis to. What’s up with Alliosn and Travis. Travis started crying so hard when Alliosn’s name got called to go home. Are they dating or something? and the way she went up to Travis and almost kissed hime? I want to know. Benji wasn’t crying at all. Ivan almost looked like he was going to cry, but he didn’t. Travis got really emotinal. Just like Elliott Yamin when people went home. People are saying stuff about when Chris Daughtry went home. I was a little happy about the votes because i liked them all. One more thing that I have to say is Travis and Ivan are super hooottt! IVAN AND BENJI ALL THE WAY.

    I am completely banning the show now. I am so sick of shows that let America decide who goes home or not. It is painfully obvious that all America cares about is sex appeal. Allison was the best and most versatile dancer on the show. Natalie is good but not as good as Allison. It’s a shame that shows like this just teach how you can get farther in life by pouting your lips and playing a sex kitten role. Very disappointing!!!!!!

    Okay whoever KAren is? You have no taste whatsoever, not to mention no common sense. What do you mean, Allison should have done something other than contemporary? The whole show, she was SO flexible. She danced hip hop, tango, and danced them so well. So your opinion is void. Anyway, I think Allison was just trying to act sexy at the end there, to show people she shouldn’t be going home. She was pretty classy and cute all the shows before last night, so she wanted to show off her sassy side (just in case any scouts were watching). She is gorgeous, not materialistic, and very sweet. Personally, I’d like to see her and Ivan have babies. Haha. I am so sad she was sent home, because even though the other girls are excellent dancers, Allison was my all-time favorite. I really felt a loss when they said her name, and I was so SURE it was going to be Natalie, for all the reasons I just said. Just goes to show, popularity wins the game, not talent. It should be called…So You Think You Have A Big Family Who Can Vote For You 394575 times. And by the way, there is no need to criticize Donyelle’s weight. She’s a beautiful girl, and a fabulous dancer.

    All I can say is go Donyelle and Benji they are the best. And all you bashers, just leave Donyelle alone! She is an excellent dancer. Everyone isn’t a size 2!
    She is well proportioned and is able to do any dance that she is taught! You haters go get a life! Donyelle is very versatile.
    Benji is the best dancer of every guy that was eliminated from the competition and who is still left in the competition. There should be two winners a female dancer(Donyelle) and a male dancer (Benji).

    Hey! Just because Travis has a supposed lisp doesn’t mean he’s gay. Actually he seemed to be crying his eyes out that Alison was leaving…. I was indeed surprised that Donyelle made it over Alison, but not for this “fat” thing (what?!) but because she’s not that great a dancer, IMO. Alison was much better than she was. But Donyelle is a black lady, maybe every black lady in America voted for her, just for that? I personally voted on which one of them is dancing the best. And when my favorite gets voted off, I still watch, and vote for the best one!! Come on, children, don’t stop watching because oh boo hoo your favorite is gone.

    Donyelle no doubt will do great things and she will be one of the last to be kicked off honestly now that Allison is gone the guys have the upper hand and one off them will win. For all the asses calling Donyelle fat, what are you thinking???? She’s not stick sticky and she has a little more meat on her bones then it’s excepted of dancers but she’s a hip hop dancer for crying out loud, she is supposed to have a booty. I can’t believe Allison though got kicked off. What is wrong with our nation. These people were probably to busy drooling over Ivan or Travis to consider the girls are in the running also. Goes to show it’s not all about the dancing skills but more about popularity. I thought it was Natalie’s time to go as much as I love her she wasn’t the best. And Ryan I’m so happy he left !!!!!!!!!!!

    donyelle absolutely deserves top 6, that was her first night she was a lil off, but she is amazing, any dance u give her, she nails it. and she is NOT fat, i think she’s beautiful, and a great dancer. and obviously the majority of amercia loves her cause she has never been put in the bottom 3 OR 2. she truly is a phenomenal woman

    Allison?? NOOO?? She was the only reason I was watching! Frankly, I’m biast because I have a major crush on her. She’s smokin! That being said, I did think she was the best female on the show. As far as that guy that got booted, see ya! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! And does anyone know if Allison was dating Ivan or Travis? I was sure her and Ivan had a thing but after the “show” she put on with Travis last night, I’m not sure anymore. I can’t find any info on-line. Anyone have anything??

    I was so upset to see Allison leave! She is amazing, she was supposed to win!!!!! donyelle is not fat! She may not be very skinny, but she dances as if she doesn’t have any weight! TRAVIS IS NOT GAY!!!!!!! Just because he cried when Allison left doesn’t make him gay! Ivan would have burst into tears also, if he wasn’t in shock!!!!!!! Allison was probably dancing around Travis because she never got the chance to dance with him!!!!!!!
    These are my top 4 guys/girls

    1.TRAVIS
    2.Heidi
    3.Benji
    4.Donyelle

    There is something about this show that you have to accept: Most of the people who are voting don’t know anything about dancing. Some voted for Nathalie because she seems nice; some voted for Donyelle because she is black and sexy; Travis because they think he’s hot; Voted for Dimitri because he had a nice body… If people keep voting for these different reasons, of course you won’t be happy about the results. So, at this point, should the judges decide who goes away and who doesn’t? No, because you will still be complaining, saying that you want to see Ashlee, Dimitri or Allison back!! That they didn’t make the right choice. Just accept that it’s a show that gave you the chance and the power to choose who you want to see again despite the fact that you are not experts on the subject. And don’t worry, all the last 20 dancers are probably going to find a great job because they are all excellent!
    (Please forgive me for my mistakes, I’m French canadian…that’s right, I don’t get to vote, but I am still going to watch the show because, overall, it’s so great!!!)

    I’m a dance teacher, and yes, Allison was the best all-round, female technical dancer. I was horrified when America voted her off. Donyelle is a wonderful dancer with an awesome personality, but for me, her weight does detract from her performance, because part of dance is about lines….for me, anyway. My brother is gay; my best guy friend is gay, and Yes, Travis is gay. So what? He’s still amazing. Ivan may be cute, but Travis is the best all around, technical male dancer. Travis was crying because him and Allison are good friends. We knew during auditions that Benji and Heidi were cousins….a long lone time ago.

    i always find it funny when people say the show is rigged because their fav contestant left the show. cmon people, personally i have been voting for nat because she has the most star quality. allison basically did exactly what nat did but not as good. even though nat gets paired with bad partners, she still can hold her own and nail it. heidi, however is only carried by her partners. dani i think also has a star quality but is not as polished. so i hope people realize that nat deserves to be where she is and win!(however if she gets kicked off u wont hear me bitching cus i know she will not go back to the dance scene unnoticed) :) go nat!

    Oh, I agree with the “let’s get rid of Cat” thing. She talks with one side of her mouth, her voice is grating, and last I checked, this is America, not “Ameriker”.

    Ivan needs to wash his hands. Did you get a look at those dirty, chewed-on nubby fingers last night? EW.

    As for Heidi and Benji being cousins, that can almost make it icky that they “have great chemistry”.

    And I don’t think Travis is gay. Although, it seems that a lot of his fans are. Check out the audience.

    I do not think Allison should have gone home. She was definitely the best female dancer and I can say that eventhough I was not one of her fans. The person who should win this competition not necessarily based on pure dancing talent but based on the perfomances he has put on in the competition is Benji. Week in and week out he has rose to the challenge and pulled it off. I do not know if Travis is gay but who cares. He can dance really well.

  67. liza Says:

    Donyelle- Yes, she is bigger than the other girls but she is far from fat. The idea that fat people are voting for her hoping to help another fat person get a head is ridiculous. If that theory is correct, Scott Savol would have won American Idol last year, but he didn’t because he wasn’t good enough. Donyelle is still there because she’s good.

    Personally, I liked Allison the least of the girls left on the show. She’s technically good, but I don’t get the sense that she feels what she’s dancing when I watch her.

    Nigel announced last night that the show has been picked up for a 3rd season, so go ahead and boycott it – it won’t make a difference

    If last night is the first time you heard that Benji and Heidi are cousins then you haven’t been paying attention. It wasn’t the first or even the second or third time it’s been brought up.

    Girlie up there who is crying saying her life would be perfect if Natalie had left and she cried all night because Allison is gone? You might want to look into getting a new life because clearly yours sucks.

Natalie’s and Travis’ tears are the most pathetic. GO BENJI, GO DONNYELLE, GO HEIDI. Yes, I have 3 favorites, but I know only one can win. I also know those 3 might not. And for all you FANATICAL fans, don’t forget, whoever wins could care LESS of any of you, especially as the years go by.

    For the people that are saying that Natalie is still there because it has turned into a popularity contest, please remember that she has been on the bottom two nearly every week. Prolly because she gets partnered up with guys who are lesser dancers and still SHE makes it work. She deserves to be there. She’s an awesome dancer! Allison is great, but she’s just a kid. I think she lacked charisma and emotion, but she’ll be fine. All of the dancers who made on the show got what they most wanted: EXPOSER.

    Natalie dances with lots of enthusiasm, grace, emotion, style and, technically speaking, I think she’s perfect. She’s injured and still gives it her all! Go Natalie!!

    Okay folks lets get this clear – The show is not just about dancing it is about entertaining (i.e. routine, personality, technique, costume, etc) even Nigel stated this numerous of times, especially when the public starts to vote. If it was solely a dance contest many of the dancers that made it to the top 20 probably would not have made it. By the way, I am a big fan of Donyelle, Benji and Natalie but was shocked to hear that Allison was voted off. I thought she would have been in the final two. Well sure is life. GO BENJI, DONYELLE and NATALIE!!!

    O.K. For everyone that is saying Donyelle is fat. My girlfriend works with Donyelle’s sister. I get the scoop right before the show who Donyelle is dancing with. Her sister said Donyelle is a size 7-8. So the other girls must be a size 1 or 2. As for Allison, I loved her. I think Natalie is good also. But, I feel I have a connection with Donyelle. I voted for Donyelle almost the whole 2 hours after the show, by just redialing constantly. If you want your favorite dancer to stay on, you have to vote and more than once. I love all the guys. I’ve said I wanted to adopt Ivan, but I think Benji is the best of the guys, and behind Donyelle, I think Heidi is the best of the girls. So let’s not talk about Donyelle’s weight. What’s that got to do with talent? If you want your favorite to stay on, just get on the phone and keep voting for them and don’t get mad because your favorite was voted off if you didn’t vote.

    Forgot to put in my last comment when I mentioned what size Donyelle is. When my girlfriend told me that, I thought she was a lot bigger, but then remembered TV adds about 15 pounds to your size and you look a lot bigger. So, again, do not trash Donyelle because of her weight. She’s not as big as she looks on TV.

    “Donyelle is not fat” – definition: things fat girls say.

    She is a little overweight for a girl (even for an American), but REALLY fat for a dancer competing for the title of best undiscovered dancing talent in America.

    Skinny girls like talking up fat girls because they are no competition, and fat girls like them because other chubby girls validate their own obesity.

Why are so many people making a big deal about her weight? I’m a white girl, who thinks she’s a beautiful black girl with a lot of talent regardless of her weight.

    I was disappointed Allison got sent home. I’ve never been impressed with Natalie. Yes, she has lovely line and, boo-hoo, those big starry eyes, but Allison was the stronger, more versatile dancer. It’s a shame that the best the winner can hope for is some back-up gig with Celine Dion, of all people. At least they will get to tour. Anyone who was ever on “American Idol” can put out a record and live forever, but a dancer’s career is gone in a flicker. For what it’s worth, I think Benji will win. He can’t jump and he can’t lift even little Heidi — remember that lift we saw in rehearsal that didn’t show up in performance? But he is a good dancer, with his limitations, and he makes people scream. The point of the show is entertainment, after all.

    Absolutely devastated that Allison is gone. Hands down, she was arguably the best female dancer and certainly the most versatile although there is probably truth to some of the earlier posts regarding her immaturity. Oh man, will I miss that smile. The fact is, as others have stated, there are no bad dancers left so someone had to go. Wasn’t my choice but Natalie IS fantastic and Donyelle is a truly beautiful dancer. I still hold to what Nigel said—that she transcends the fact that she may not have they stereotypical dancer’s body. She is beautiful and talented. NOBODY should be focusing on her weight. She’s proven herself.

    That said, with the remaining girls, Heidi is heads above the rest. While I think Allison was better all around and often more engaging than Heidi, there is no doubt that Heidi dances like nobody’s business. I only wonder what will happen if it’s her and Benji left.

    As for the guys, Ryan was the right choice to go. I think Nigel nailed it when he said maybe Ryan lacked a little confidence in himself. He was so blah some weeks but when you could see what that kid could do, he could really shine like in his solos. He’ll go far. The remaining three dudes are extraordinary. Ivan’s charisma shows how far you can go (unlike Ryan). He is so fun to watch and so talented. Benji and Travis are simply amazing. Fantastic dancers and either one of those guys deserve the grand prize, if not Heidi.

    Should be a fun finish!!!

    As you fight over who should stay and who should go, I would like to remind you in the USA it’s what sells that counts. Talent be damned! That;s why Allison and Ryan are gone.
    I am stunned that no one took exception to Nigel’s comment to Ryan about him having no self esteem. When did Nigel stop being an executive producer and become a pyschologist? It was a hurtful thing to say. It was character assasination in a very public forum. His comment had nothing to do with dancing. Nigel could have said Ryan you failed to woo the audience. Ryan, you need to work on your star appeal or showmanship, but for Nigel to imply Ryan needs to get his head together and get some self esteem was outrageous. Ryan is a young black male who grew up in a suburban neighborhood where contemporary dance wasn’t always viewed positively especially for a male. To pursue his dream he had to be focused and strong, not only physically but mentally. Ryan knew who he was and what he wanted- to dance and make his mark dancing. Nigel, I suggest when you are on tour you take the time get to know Ryan better. You owe him a public apology! Character assaination does not become you as a cultured man.

    I think Allison had everything going for her. She is well-rounded as a dancer, shows beautiful emotion, and has a great personality, and she was only 18. I certainly hope she becomes a part of Evolution. If Travis doesn’t win this competition now, I don’t know what America is thinking. I will definitely be voting for him! I definitely don’t like Heidi. She is NOT well-rounded. If you think back to that “cheer-leader” performance hip hop in all white (i dont remember the song) and “Walk-Away” Pop routine…ugh I don’t believe she’s still in the competition. Go Travis and Allison though. Way to be true dancers with skill and integrity.

    Allison is a GREAT dancer and she will have a GREAT career. But, she didn’t have the personality to help her win the show.

    Am I the only person who thinks Heidi sucks? She has utterly no hips and watching her do ballroom makes me sick.

    I’m not saying she has to have curves like Donyelle, but her body is more suited for ballet. She’s also a one-trick pony. She always does the same damn ballroom moves and kicks. That’s all she does people. Benji is way more versatile for a ballroom dancer.

    Of the remaining women, Natalie is the best. She can be graceful, sexy or serious. She has personality and skill.

She’s an exceptional dancer, versitle, passionate, funny, beautiful, and sweet. What more can you want? I just don’t know why people don’t vote for her more. Unfortunately, I know she’s still in trouble. Also, I know that, on these types of shows, just because you personally love someone and think they should win doesn’t necessarily mean they will. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and, unfortunately, it may not coincide with yours. Deal with it. I am.

    THOUGHT THE VOTES WERE RIGHT THIS WEEK WITH RYAN. I WAS A LITTLE HAPPY ALLISON WENT HOME INSTEAD OF NATALIE. I AM ROOTING FOR BENJI AND IVAN. I WILL STILL ROOT FOR TRAVIS, BUT NOT AS MUCH AS IVAN AND BENJI.

    Allison was practically raping Travis on-stage, which was sooooo hot. I wish I could do the same to Travis, I just love him! :)

    I’m more curious and surprised at Alison’s last performance around Travis. I now feel that if there was a hookup with here and Ivan, he would have shown more emotion about her leaving. Travis clearly was torn up, and the way Alison danced around him were all signs that if there wasn’t a hookup, one was about to begin. I’m also wondering if she chose that song, the lyrics were somehow coincodental to a situation that obviously hadn’t gotten out to the media.

    I THINK ALLISON AND TRAVIS LOOK LIKE GOOD COUPLES. I THOUGHT BEFORE ALLISON GOT VOTED OFF THAT SHE AND IVAN WOULD MAKE PERFECT COUPLES. NOOOOO!!!! I WAS WRONG.

    Regarding Bobby Rude’s comment that only silly teenage girls are voting for the contestants. Bobby – I’m 58 years old who voted many, many multiple times for Donyelle. It’s not just silly teenagers who watch this show.

    So You Think You Can Dance’S ridulous cameras and CONSTANT moving!!
    HI,
    I am writing in protest of the MANY camera changes on this show by the producer. No sooner does the eyes settle on what the dancers are doing, then the person who controls the camera views changes them, and then just as fast, changes them again and again. This is so bad, that I , if it wasnt for my wifes enjoyment of this show, I would not watch it. It is horrible to not be able to see the choreography of these dancers. It is very annoying to not be able to view it.

    I just watched thurs show I recorded, and I am in Awe. I am in SHOCK that Allison wen’t home. It should have been Donyelle,it is so clear here who the better dancer is. Donyelle go home, I’m not even sure how you made it this far.
    Is this show fixed?

    July 30th, 2006 at 6:38 pm

    Your vote counters must have been paid off or bribed in some way. There is absolutely no way Allison should have been voted off.She was hands down America’s fav. and had twice the talent of any other female dancer, let alone ten times the talent of Danyelle. Anyone that doesn’t think so must be one of Jerry’s kids. It’s such a bunch of crap, I think I’d rather watch re-runs of Leave it to Beaver instead of this show anymore.

    yeah allison shouldnt of gone and travis isnt gay (ryan is). the reason that allison was dancing around him was because they made a contempary dance together but travis couldn’t pull it together to do it with her (then later did it with her at a press tour) Donyelle is an inspiration to “larger” women that they can still do the same things that skinny women can do. thats the main reason she is still there

    I really think that Heidi is a great ballroom dancer but she’s just not versitile enough when it comes to hip hop and contemporary. I also think that the main reason why Donyelle got this far in the competition is because a lot of overweight girls will vote for her and give her credit for being able to dance so good for a heavy girl. However I dont’t believe that she is the best and most versatile dancer all around.

    I was crushed when Allison went home, she was easily the best female dancer left. But I have to admit, I always wanted her to show a little more personality. Ryan was also very talanted with little personality. I remember Donyelle’s first audition, she had so much warmth and flavor, I am very happy she has made it this far, but I was dissappointed with her last solo. Travis is my favorite guy, gay or not, he is hot! Remember, the title is America’s favorite dancer, not America’s best dancer.

    Why would you want to stop watching the show and affect ratings when it was not Channel 11 who voted her off, it was you all, the voters. It’s all in your hands, so if Alison got cut it was all the people who didn’t pick up the phone and vote. I think the people who should win are Heidi or Benji, they are awesome..

    Allison should still be dancing. I believe it would be fairer if people would vote for the “worst” dancer, the dancer they want eliminated instead of voting for their favourite one. For instance, though I think that Allison is from far the best dancer of the bunch, I did not vote for her last week since I was sure that she would be safe and didn’t need my vote. Let’s hope this voting system will change in the future.

    Donyelle doesn’t deserve to be up there. She doesn’t have a great personality which translates to her dancing. I’m always rather bored whenever she is performing. Of course she is good, all the kids are on the show are. But is she exceptional? Hell no. Allison and Natalie are amazing and both of them bring something unique and special to the table. I haven’t seen Donyelle blow me away in anything. She needs to get kicked off already- so people stop whining and hit redial and vote for the people who ARE mind-blowing!

    I think Heidi,Travis, and Benji are great! They always blow me away with their performances and leave me wanting more. As far as who is gay and who’s not, who gives a damn. They are just there to dance so stop with the “I bet he’s gay, and she’s too fat, and they are dating” crap. Get a life!!! The show is for “Entertainment” purposes only!!

    Allison got a raw deal last week. I don’t know what america was thinking last week. I agree with one of the other post that this is nothing more than a popularity contest. Donyelle is an average dancer, she does not deserve to be in the top 10. This entire think is fake, it is not a fair show, it’s nothing more than marketing at its best. I am not going to say any names but I know people who one competition after competition against contests that made the top 16 for the show. And the same people didn’t even make the first cut.
    If you think about it but the producer really do have control on this show. Example strong choregraphy verse weak. (Ex. Natalie and Ivan) They performed what they were taught last night. These dancers have been dancing since they have been 4, you know they were prepared. But they were given a weak dances. And usually the choregraphers work off the dancers strenths and weaknesses. During their contemporary Natalie should have been dancing more and Ivan should have danced less. Remember a few weeks ago when Travis and Heidi danced contemporary with the bench. Who did all the dancing while the other was hidden behind the bench. Well, I hope someone out their understands where I am coming from. And Travis if you don’t win, don’t worry the winner was decided before this show began.

    Tell me about it, get over the whole Alison ordeal.. Life goes on and I’m sure everyone anyone who appeared on this show will be forgotten by fans in a few months.. Life goes on!! The show is for fun and enjoy it while it lasts.. Ivan was not that great, come on, the people who deserve to be there are still there. Although I would’ve rather seen Natalie stay instead of Donyelle.

I did vote for Ivan and Benji the night before, but i never picked up the phone and voted for Travis because he STINKS. If Travis wins instead of benji, i am going to be so MAD!
