So You Think You Can Dance  
The results ... (and squee for Chelsie & Mark!!!!)

OH MY GOD!!! I totally was convinced it was Evan going home, just utterly convinced. And I was pissy and moaning the whole time because he never got a great routine that highlighted him (sure, he got Broadway, sucky Joey and craptastic Tyce) and was crapped on or backhandedly complimented all season long. BUT HE MADE IT TO THE TOP FOUR, BITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I'll FINALLY get to see him and Jeanine dance together. Yay!

As for the show -- this is the top four I expected, and I got my EVAN!! and Jeanine. Loved seeing Chelsie twice, LOVED seeing Chelsie and Mark -- and gee, Nigel thanks for the reminder that they SO WRONGLY got kicked out at top six last season. Tyce, Tyce, Tyce -- you do realize that the clowns aren't literal, right? When I heard the song, saw the outfits, I groaned and told myself I don't care if this was choreographed by Wade or Mia (whose work I usually love), the literalness of the clowns is just so lame. But it was Tyce.

Of course.

But who cares. EVAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ETA: Checking for a response, I was right in saying that Evan's never been giving ANYTHING near the pimp-spot: He's performed first, second or third EVERY week, except for the first where he performed 4th sandwiched between nine other couples.

10 couples - 4th to dance
9 couples - 1st to dance
8 couples - I'm not sure, but I think he was 2nd or 3rd
7 couples - 3rd to dance
6 couples - I'm not sure, but I think he was 2nd or 3rd
5 couples - 1st to dance
4 couples - 1st to dance
3 couples - 2nd to dance

Nigel, you suck! Thank goodness Evan's so popular.

I was so happy for Evan!

*cougheventhoughti'mrootingforBrandoncough* But it's not like I'm able to vote or anything....so my opinion is moot.

It was so great to see Mark again. I loved him. There needs to be a way for us to see him every week. Just keep doing "Bleeding Love" every week insead of the musical guest.

I'll be honest, this year, it's Evan or bust for me, LOL!

Mark is wonderful; I don't want to see BL every week, how about those two and Neil/Sabra and Kameron/Lacey, Natalie/Musa and Benji/Donyelle dance take turns with guest dances every week? And Artem, Melody, Danny can show up too to switch out dancers. That works for me.

YAY! I'm so glad that I just spoiled myself. I was worried about him, too. Now I can just happily watch it when it comes on.

The judges pissed me off a lot last night (especially the... new one? It sounds like they rotate around? Lil C, I guess his name was -- seriously, how the fuck do you make a review that ends in 'it was an 'A' performance' sound like 'you sucked and I hate you and you should kill yourself'?). So, I'm glad America realizes that they have no credibility when it comes to Evan.

Good you spoiled yourself, you woulda had a long wait. The reveal of Evan's safety was at 9:59.

That is what those fuckers have been doing ALL season long to Evan. He has not gotten one straight across the boards, positive A+, non-back-handed complimented comments once all season. Pisses me off so much. Plus, he's not gotten ONE stand-out dance. The only one was the "Butt Dance" which I embedded for you last time, but that one highlighted Randi('s butt). Oh, and he's performed first, second or third EVERY week, except for the first where he performed 4th sandwiched between nine other couples.

10 couples - 4th to dance
9 couples - 1st to dance
8 couples - I'm not sure, but I think he was 2nd or 3rd
7 couples - 3rd to dance
6 couples - I'm not sure, but I think he was 2nd or 3rd
5 couples - 1st to dance
4 couples - 1st to dance
3 couples - 2nd to dance

Like, American Idol, the closer to the last performance (ie, pimp spot), the better chance you have of being remembered. Evan, they screwed him ALL SEASON LONG!

Fortunately, Evan is very, very popular. Phew!!!

ETA: Sorry, missed a few weeks.

Wow, that sounds stressful.

*hugs*

But I read that it means we got another solo out of Evan. How was it?

His solo last night was so fantastic. The opening was just... wow!

I'm really glad that he's got such a huge fanbase.

It was the same solo from last night. All of those who performed one, just did the one from the previous night.

Aw, that's a shame. Still, it was really good, so I'll enjoy seeing it again.

I was pretty confident going in since he was so much higher in DI votes than Ade. And once I saw the recaps, again they highlighted the very few good things they say and that helped and then when Nigel started his no losers I knew it. He would never say that for Evan.

Joining in the SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

My fave final four. They are going to have amazing dances. Loved to see Evan highlighted in the Sonya boys number Wednesday and in the Clown dance. Finally he is getting a chance to show his technique.

And Jennifer, all of a sudden on idol forums there are literally dozens more Evan fans coming out of the woodwork. Last night during the show it was cracking me up how many new people were posting.

We may get Lil C crapping on us but take that judges. Hee!

After last week, I completely give up on DI for SYTYCD. They were so incredibly off in all areas, that I just throw my hands up.

And once I saw the recaps, again they highlighted the very few good things they say and that helped and then when Nigel started his no losers I knew it. He would never say that for Evan.

I thought of watching the recaps but I *really* thought Evan was going home and didn't want to hear him bashed again and again, so I just skipped it.

It was nice seeing him highlighted, but again, I was afraid it was because he was going bye-bye, so I was just depressed, LOL!

Nice to know!!!!!!
