SYTYCD Canada - Top 18 Performance Show

Tonight the Top 18 dancers performed with new partners. The change up worked well, I think, and allowed dancers to shine and showcase their talents for viewers.

Judges:Jean-Marc, Tre Armstrong, Luther Brown, Mary Murphy, Nico Archambault.

Here is a summary with some thoughts about the evenings show. At the bottom I attempt to power rank, though I am not feeling entirely confident on my rankings this week so PLEASE feel free to comment.

Christian & Jordan
Paso Doble - Francis Lafreniere & Natalli Reznik
La Crimrosa Dominae (Firebender) - Serge Colbert / Jeffrey Fayman, Yoav Goren - Immediate Music

It was an end of the world theme and was very powerful. I love choreographers/past contestants Francis and Natalli. Jordan is my favourite and I was worried for her being in this routine, but they pulled it off amazingly. The Flip & Drag was stunning and the lift and split at the end - wow!

Matt & Denitsa
Contemporary - Sabrina Matthews
Can't Breathe - Can't Breathe - Joy (Deluxe Edition) Fefe Dobson ft Orianthi

This was emotional and well done, but not as powerful as most of Sabrina's routines. I really loved the spin lift and thought the pair were well matched. I usually fast forward through Jean-Marc's comments but forgot to on this one and had to witness him talking about "Dreams" of Denitsa - he is so pervy... reminded me to remember to fast forward his comments the rest of the show!

Carlena & Kevin
Hip Hop - ShoTyme
Clear - Clear! - Clear! Kardinal Offishal

This was fast and hard hitting, but it was also out of sync and noticably so because of the hard hits. Carlena was obviously better as it is her genre, but Kevin did well overall. He had fake tattoos on his arms and it was a nice edgey look for him.

Lyndsy & Shane
Disco - Melissa Williams
Shake Your Groove Thing - Shake Your Groove Thing - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Peaches & Herb Peaches & Herb

This was amazing! I usually enjoy the fast disco routines, but this one was out of this world! I loved her look, especially her eye shadow, and the way they moved around the dance floor, was fun and precise and - just fantastic!

Adam & Geisha
Jazz - Blake McGrath
Who's That Chick - Who's That Chick? (feat. Rihanna) [Single Version] - Who's That Chick? (feat. Rihanna) [Single Version] - Single David Guetta and Rihanna

This routine was fun! It didn't look difficult, but the judges made a point to say it was. The costumes were bright and fun, neon and even glowing - they took the lights out and the black light colours of their clothes and body painted glowed.

Yulia & Francois
Mambo - Gustavo Vargas,
Mambo Gazon - Mambo Gozon - Mambo Birdland Tito Puente

The outfits were hot, the moves were sexy and overall this was a spicy routine. I did notice the tough lift they were practicing in rehearsal clip did not happen in the routine, which makes me feel like they couldn't get it and had to make the routine "easier" I don't know much about Mambo but this was pretty hot!

JP & Shelaina
Bollywood - Longinus Fernandes
Baawre (Lucky By Chance) - Baawre - Luck By Chance Loy Mendonsa & Shankar Mahadevan

This was a pretty amazing puppet style Bollywood routine. They were in sync, they had the look and did wonderfully. There was a slight wardrobe issue where Shelaina got caught up in her skirt, but she recovered well and kept smiling.

Boneless & Teya
Crump - Lil C
Get Krazy - Buckmouth

This was hard hitting, but not hard enough. Crump is rough and these guys were too soft. Not only that, but the song was kind of rough and tough to follow - it felt scattered.

Joey & Melissa
Contemporary - Mandy Moore
I Wanna Dance With Somebody - I Wanna Dance With Somebody - 14 Side Project

This was beautiful. The story was about being swept off your feet and Melissa was literally swept off her feet, floating through the air. It was emotional and absolutely peaceful! Love Mandy Moore, Love Joey and now I love Melissa.
