OMG! I'm so shocked! (SYTYCD)  
Well, THAT was unexpected but entirely joyful for me. (I had (what I thought was totally unrealistic) the hope that it would be Allison and not Natalie going home tonight.) I was completely and utterly convinced that Natalie was going home and watching just to watch her goodbye video. And I think EVERYONE, judges, other contestants, etc. all thought that Natalie was going. I'm so happy she's still there. If I had a choice of a final three ladies that I thought believably would make it there, it would have been these three (I love Jessica, but I know I'm in the minority with that) ... I expected Allison to beat Natalie and I'm glad she didn't because while I liked Allison, I loved Natalie overall in every way. So go Natalie!!!!

Not a shock at all was Ryan's departure. The only icky thing left is the fact that somehow frickin' IVAN! is in the top three of guys and that is just wrong! But WOOHOO! Natalie, and hopefully she and Benji will be paired with numbers that actually require them to dance together. If not, I could live with a Natalie/Travis pairing -- but please don't put her with Ivan. Ick!

I immediately thought of you Jennifer. I have to admit - I was really shocked. I thought it was obviously going to be Natalie as did she, as did pretty much everyone else in the room. She did a wonderful job on her solo - as did Allison. To be honest - it really should hae been Donyelle in the final two. She is the weakest dancer up there. But she has a huge fan base.

I am really worried about Benji because Travis was really pimped a lot tonight - featured in that weak cell block tango (seriously pirouettes? Has Tyce ever seen Chicago?)and Dan was comparing him to Nick and then WTF was up with Allison throwing herself all around him during the final dance.

I like Travis and he shouldn't have been in the final two (has is Ivan a top two dancer? How? How?) but I don't really want him to win. Gah - here's hoping Benji gets good choreographers next week.

But congratulations. I know Natalie was your gal so you deserve this happy.

I don't care how much they pimp Travis, I can't see him beating Benji, I just can't. And yes, I love Donyelle, but Donyelle should have been in the bottom two and based on dance alone, going home. (I hate saying that!) Well, I have one more week with Natalie (I'm sure she's gone next week) and I WILL enjoy it!!!

I was so surpirse tonight, it was crazy, I freaking bawled (and i am really not into the reality shows.) I was super shocked that Natalie beat Allison.

What was with that whole thing with Allison/Travis at her solo and also at the end of the show? (I thought that was freaking HOTTTT!) They were allllll over each other (I though Travis was gay, but it didn't seem that way to me.)

As far as pairings go, I think it should be Donyelle (I LOVE HER) and Benji (I LOVE HIM); They have awesome energy and chemistry, that I really miss. Travis and Natalie because that could work and I could see it and Ivan with Heidi, because they are my least favorite at this point.

oy.

I like Benji and Donyelle, but I was really blown away by Benji and Natalie's chemistry and quite bummed that we didn't actually get to see them dance togethe (neither of their routines called for much partnering, sigh). And I LOVED Heidi and Travis, so my ideal pairing would be Benji/Natalie, Heidi/Travis and Donyelle/Ivan although that's horribly unfair to Donyelle.

Man, I wish I'd kept the show because I don't recall this Allison/Travis thing beyond just two dancing, LOL!

Yea, I know what you're saying. They did look great together. We'll see what happens.

OMG! seriously, I thought Travis was gay, but it REALLY didn't look like that when Travis and Allison gravitated toward each other at the end, and then everybody was looking at them. It was a WOW, kinda of moment.
