WEDENSDAY PERFORMANCE SHOW
In three weeks, Canada’s favourite dancer will be crowned. But if you want to see your favourite dancer rise to the top, you need to do one thing:
Your Top 10 need you to call in or text five million times so that one of them, the one you want to see triumph over the others, can win.
Think of this as your civil duty. Be heard.
But back to the show.
Host Leah Miller introduced permanent judges Tré Armstrong and Jean Marc Genereux while special guest judges Blake McGrath and Luther Brown joined the panel.
As of this week–to mix things up–the format has changed. Not only have dancers changed partners, but all will also perform both duets and solos from now on. Instead of voting for your favourite couple, you will now need to call in to keep individual dancers from elimination. Gone are the days where there was a bottom three. Dancers with the lowest number of votes get automatically voted off.
So like I said before. Go vote.
Up first were Natalli Reznik and Izaak Smith. The two got grooving to boxing-inspired hip-hop choreography. While judges were impressed with Natalli, they expected more from Izaak.
“Izaak you did a good job. But this is Top 10, you don’t need to be good, you need to be great,” said Luther.
Performing the oh-so-sexy Mambo routine were Kaitlyn Fitzgerald and Danny Arbour. The two lit the stage on fire and the judges felt the heat.
“Danny brought the mambo, Kaitlyn brought the Tabasco,” joked Jean Marc.
Even to this day, I still don’t fully understand his jokes.
Allie Bertram and Nico Archambault were ready to perform the waltz. While Arassay and Nico had unbreakable chemistry with their partnership, Allie and Nico were no different.
“You’re the perfect partner,” Luther said to Nico. “It was effortless.”
However, Blake was sad to see Nico split from Arassay. I concur. The two were a match-made in SYTYCD heaven.
“But what better new girlfriend than Allie!” Blake added. “It looked easy and effortless.”
Meh. Still like Nicassay better. Ooh, you like that portmanteau don’t you? Catchy. Move over Brangelina, TomKat and yeah you too Jenniyer
Up next were Arassay Reyes and Vincent Noiseux. The two were ready to strut their stuff through disco. With their fast and sharp movements, the two won the judges approval.
“You two are showing Canada what it takes to be in the Top 10,” Blake said. “You’re so seasoned professionally — like jerk chicken and spicy sauce. You’re saucy and I love it,” he said.”
Lisa Auguste and Mile Faber were ready to set the mood with contemporary. The sensual and emotional performance really moved the audience and judges. Well, some of them.
“I think you’re a great dancer,” Luther told Lisa. “There’s so much more to you. Show them everything.”
However, Blake thought otherwise.
“It fell a little flat for me,” he said. “Lisa, you’re so gifted,” but wanted her to push herself further. “I wanted to see more technique,” he said to Miles.
That’s all for the performance show ladies and gents. But who moves on and who goes? Find out…below!
THURSDAY NIGHT RESULTS SHOW
The results show started off with the entire cast dancing to Mia Michael’s choreography – a well-known judge on the American version of SYTYCD.
Let’s get it out there. Michael’s is the goddess of contemporary. Her routines are not only breathtaking but they take to you to a whole new world. I actually feel emotion when I watch her work – and, coming from me, that says a lot.
Which ladies and which boys were the bottom four? Natalli Reznik and Kaitlyn Fitzgerald well as Miles Faber and Danny Arbour faced elimination.
After all four performed solos that would not change the results, Natalli and Danny said their goodbyes.
Stay tuned next week to watch your Top 8!
