So You Wish You Could Dance Sundays, SYTYCD Edition

Sigh.  I love this show.

Ok, Melanie and Marko can do no wrong in my eyes.  This piece is not as gorgeous as the statue routine -- which was just perfection -- but they still were uhmazing.

This piece with Ryan and Ricky could easily have been a disaster, but somehow they managed to let the dancing speak and to not let the prop/conceit get too much in the way.

Finally, there were these guys, who performed at the results show. Normally, I'd get super annoyed at dancers who perform tricks in lieu of dancing, but the trick lifts they performed were cray-cray. Totally worth watching.

Speaking of the results show, can someone explain to me how Miranda, who clearly performed the best solo of the night, got axed?

I agree that Miranda performed the best solo of the night. While she isn't one of my favorites, I think she should have stayed on that alone, and they should have sent Ashley home instead! And I pretty much luuuuurve Melarko and they need to win. :)

I actually didn't like the Melanie/Marko piece and it's not because they can't dance. I just am not into the whole "lyrical" hip-hop thing. As someone who actually has performed a lot of hip-hop, I guess I am a little bit of purist. I am still forming an opinion about the two of them.

I think Miranda is an excellent dancer and didn't deserve to go home. I think the producers have ideas about who they want on the show and I believe (and have heard) that they often start the show already knowing who they want to cut. Anyway, that"s just me and my conspiracy theories.
