So You Think You Can Dance sets the finale with the elimination of two unfortunate souls with the toughest elimination of the season. It is always tough to see the final two just barely miss the entrance into the finale, but as Cat always says, America is looking for their favorite dancer for Season 6, so, eliminate we must.
Host Cat Deeley, in a green sparkly dress, announced that it was the final time the Top 6 would be together as the group danced a contemporary routine from Tyce Diorio done to “Send in the Clowns.” There was no doubt that these six definitely belonged in the Top 6 as they were all dancing as champions as they looked to the finale, well, at least four of them would be headed there.
After a quick recap of the performances last night, Cat brought the Top 3 ladies first for America’s results and we saw no surprise as we saw Jeanine slip into the finale with ease, leaving either Kayla or Melissa to join her by show’s end.
Another Tyce Diorio routine from season’s past from Jessica and Will was performed and then we learned that our first finalist from the guys was no surprise as Brandon’s name was announced.
A Mia Michaels Emmy routine was performed, the one with the door, and another Emmy nominated performance from aSYTYCD alumni who now choreographs for the show, hit the stage before the pointless solos were performed.
America’s Best Dance crew, The Jabberwocky’s, did an enjoyable routine; a Tabitha and Napoleon Emmy nominated routine, “Bleeding Love” by Chelsea and Mark from last season was danced and the some singer, Sean Paul, tried to fit into a dance show before we finally had the answer we all craved; Who were the Top 4.
Cat finally got to it and announced that Brandon and Jeanine were being joined by Kayla and Evan as one of the most anticipated finales inSo You Think You Can Dance history was set into motion. We will be especially sad to see Ade leave us as his personality was a joy to watch, especially the performance he did with Melissa that had all of the judges in tears, but Evan and Brandon will certainly represent the guys well as will Kayla and Jeanine for the girls.
