Lindsey & Matt
Hip-Hop - ShoTyme
"Like That" - Memphis Bleek
This was energetic, hard hitting and fun. I really enjoyed watching it and thought it was a great start to the show.
Jordan & Christian
Contemporary - Stacey Tookey
"All in Love is Fair" - Stevie Wonder
This was a powerful piece about a chance encounter between past lovers who relive a moment. I thought it was moving and pretty. There was a near-miss on a lift that scared me but they recovered well.
Melissa & Shane
Salsa - Gustavo Vargas
"Salsa y Sabor" - Tito Puente
This had some serious lifts, twists, spins and tricks. BOTH of them did some crazy flips and it ended with an amazing one-legged lift by Shane pulling Melissa over him, amazing!
"What About Us" - ATB
This was, hands down, my most favourite routine of the season, and maybe ever. It was absolutely crazy-good. I will post it for everyone to see because it truly was THAT awesome!
"We Will Rock You" - Queen
After the girl's routine this simply wasn't up to par. It was fun, the guys did lifts and tricks and moved well, but the girl's was just that much better! Christian really stood out fo rme in this routine.
Shane"Fancy Footwork" - Choremo
Another amazing solo from Shane. I really find him the strongest of the male dancers.
Melissa"Commander" - Kelly Rowland
She was amazing, so much power and energy, when she dances she commands attention. She has been consistently great this whole season and I will not be surprised if she wins.
Lindsey"Beautiful" - Me'Shell Ndegeocello
Easily the most growth this season. Her solo showed such maturity and committment, I had goosebumps watching her dance.
Matt"Ain't No Sunshine" - Bill Mathers
For me the most improved male dancer. I am surprised he is still around over some of the other dancers, but he is holdinghis own and his solo was very good.
Christian"Beautiful People" - Chris Brown
I often forget he is ballroom because he really does so well in every genre thrown at him. I appreciated his upbeat solo that was ballroom but very fluid and fun.
Jordan"This Woman's Work" - Greg Laswell
Jordan was my pick to win since auditions. I adore her and I will stick to my decision for her to win, her solo was amazing, her dancing all season has been consistently great.
This is tough. I am ultimately voicing my predictions for the win....
Since day ONE I have been a Jordan fan, and even though Melissa has quickly crept up on (and at times even surpassed) Jordan, I am going to stick with Jordan to win. Melissa a close second (or if I am wrong, Melissa will win and Jordan a close second) I guess there are two ways to do this - MY OPINION and what I THINK CANADA'S OPINION WILL BE....
Mandy's Thoughts:1 - Jordan
2 - Melissa
3 - Lindsey
4 - Shane
5 - Christian
6 - Matt
Prediction based on Canada's Votes:1 - Melissa
2 - Jordan
3 - Christian
4 - Matt
5 - Lindsey
6 - Shane
WHY ARE THEY SO DIFFERENT?
Because, I think Canada, like USA SYTYCD, sometimes gets it wrong, or some dancers simply have more fan support for whatever reason. This is why the "winner" is called "favourite dancer" not "best dancer" at the end.
We often see the same fantastic dancers keep getting bottom 3, while some less talented dancers stick around week after week. Every season of every SYTYCD it happens. Of course, we all have different opinions on what we like, but that is how it goes.
For example, I think Joey should be in the finale, within Top 3 to be honest, but he is gone. I also thought Denitsa stuck around way too long. I could go on, but I won't.
