SYTYCD Season 7 Top 7

Last night I watched both Wednesday and Thursday's performance and Results show.

We started with word that Ashley had been injured and I can tell you she was the one eliminated.

This seasons rules dictate that injured people are put on the bottom 3 list and joined by 2 others who are chosen by least amount of viewers votes.

Then the two uninjured dance for their lives.

It happened last week with Alex and now this week with Ashley. Both injuries were substantial enough that they wouldn't be able to dance the next week, which means they are gone. (THe new rules also say if you can't dance two weeks you are disqualified)

I was less sad to see Ashley go, don't get me wrong she is amazing but I had an emotional attachment to Alex. I am now rooting for Kent.

Billy is awesome too but Kent is the whole package.

Something I have been able to do fairly accurately since last season is guess who choreographed opening routines simply based on the dance itself. Tyce did a great job with the opening number it was broadway but fun and not overly cheesey.

I also loved seeing Twitch and Comfort dance together - wow!

Favourite dances were Travis Wall's choreography for his mother. RObert is just so amazing!

Also loved Jose and DOminic's B-Boy thought there was that middle part where they kind of ran from side to side that should have been filled with more of their smooth moves...

Kent and Neil did an awesome baseball broadway routine. I am not generally a fan of broadway - I mean it's fun and quirky but usually overly cheesey - this was good.

Lauren's Tahitian dance was AMAZING Mark - - - wow! I have never looked at Mark as "Sexy" usually more "odd" or "eccentric" but last night, in that dance, holy SEXY!

Loves seeing Christina Perri performing “Jar of Hearts” live. What a great story - waitressing one day and #1 itunes the next because of her song being used on SYTYCD - way to go Stacey Tookey for giving her that opportunity!

One thing I really really LOVE about this season is the all-stars who stck up for and encourage their contestent partners regardless of who they are each week... also hearing Cat Deely support and voice her thoughts on things more than in the past. I do miss Mary's shrieking, though just a little, and I would rather see Mia choreo than judge, she annoys me as a judge, she gets way too bitchy!

I wanted to post videos of my fave dances but youtube is hard-core for sytycd copyright and most videos are taken down but feel free to search the dancers and song to see them if you missed them!
