  • A shocking result for the girls!

    9.5
    After last night's dancing, I thought that the bottom two guys would be Ryan and Travis. I was right on that one. I also thought that Ryan would be the one to go, since he's been sort of weak in recent weeks, except in the contemporary dances. It's been pointed out to him a few times that he looks uncomfortable while dancing in other styles. Travis, on the other hand, has been relatively strong recently, and although he had a couple of bad (or not-so-good) dances last night, I thought his past weeks would carry him through.



    But the girls... that was the shock. First of all, all four girls are strong dancers, and quite good. I didn't want to see any of them go. But after last night's performances, I thought that Donyelle might be in the bottom two, since the judges thought that both of her dances were weak. This must have been quite the shock for her, after having been the favorite when she was paired with Benji. Beyond Donyelle... well, picking a second girl for the bottom two would be tough, but I thought that Natalie would probably be the one, and the one to go.



    What a shock when Donyelle was pronounced safe, and Allison was put in the bottom two! And an even bigger shock when it was announced that Allison is the one to go. She is, as the judges have said, a very versatile dancer, and was able to do all the styles of dance. She and Ivan were really good together, and their hip hop routine last night was just so cute! I just hope that all those broadway producers and directors were watching the show, and give her a call, because she deserves the best!moreless

    The performances this evening were amazing by the bottom four: Allison, Natalie, Travis, & Ryan. And the opening with the Chicago musical jailhouse tango was absolutely stunning.



    And the only reason why I had to give this episode a rating just shy of a perfect 10 was because I really think America got it completely wrong in voting off Allison.



    Ryan was definitely the weakest male dancer, as sweet as he was. I had no problems with that. But Allison is the strongest female competitor on the show, especially with Donyelle on the injured list and you can definitely see her subtle-y holding back. I disliked Natalie as soon as she started taking on that \"sex kitten\" persona Nigel was talking about. She pulled it back but I was already disenchanted. Meanwhile, Allison is a beautiful, sexy, talented wholesome girl and it\'s sad that American society has fallen to the point where they find that less interesting than the sex kitten.



    I was as shocked as Ivan was when Allison\'s name was announced. I LOVED her exit dance, ebracing Travis as he stood in tears. You can tell that they have great contemporary style chemistry and that they really respect each other\'s work. My other surprise was that I thought Allison was closest with Ivan.



    Travis\'s second week of tears has touched me tremendously. The love & respect these dancers have for each other; the bittersweet mix of relief that it wasn\'t them but heartbroken that it was a friend & colleague is exactly why I watch this show. This is one of the greatest reality shows, hands down. My favorite-- the only one that gives it a run for its money is Dancing with the Stars on ABC in the fall.moreless
