So You Think You Can Dance - Finals  
So I was spoiled for everything, but I came away with a different take on my own. :shrugs:

There were only two dancers that kicked ass in all three numbers in my opinion -- Jacob and Ashleigh, and because I preferred Ashleigh's three numbers (the Angel routine with Russell and the contemporary with Ryan the absolute most -- both were stunningly beautiful), whereas the Broadway routine that Jacob did with Ellenore was a bit meh for me, I'm giving the edge to Ashleigh. Okay, yeah, it helps that she's my absolute favoritest as well.

The routines I heard were so amazing? Eh. I thought the D&D routine was good, but I don't think that Jacob and Kathryn had the chemistry to sell it. Kathryn and Legacy would have, Ryan and Ellenore would have and and Jacob and Ashleigh would have, not Jacob and Kathryn, in my opinion. The hip-hop that closed the show out? Kathryn and Russell were slightly out of sync almost every time they were supposed to be in sync, so meh. The Ellenore/Russell routine? I was kinda bored.

I know, I know it's down to Jacob and Russell, but for me, Ashleigh and Jacob were the clear stand-outs. Screw the judges with their faint praise for Ashleigh (okay, Nigel especially -- "Ashleigh, I didn't even bother watching you" "Oh, yeah, I guess you can dance, Jacob you were awesome" "You're only here because of your injury, but you're better with Jacob than your husband"). She was amazing. The six in order of how I thought they did --

1. Ashleigh
2. Jacob
3. Ryan
4. Kathryn
5. Russell
6. Ellenore (although, she's great -- it was a GREAT night of dancing)

How I think they'll end up tomorrow night?

1. Russell or Jacob
2. Jacob or Russell
3. Kathryn
4. Ellenore
5. Ryan
6. Ashleigh (because some people "blame" her for being in the top 6 w/out dancing.)

Oh well, at least I liked all six finalists, woohoo!!

ETA: Voting my fingers off for Ashleigh although it will do no good, sigh.

I think I actually agree with you about your first list, there. Ashleigh was amazing, as was Jacob, and Ryan was right up there with them. Especially the Ashleigh/Ryan dance, which I was *so* glad to see. Travis Wall did a fantastic job for them.

I think your second list is pretty close to how it'll actually go, although I just have a feeling that Russell's fans may pull it through.

Yeah, after reading other comments, I edited to put Russell or Jacob first, then Jacob or Russell with the belief that it's probably going to be Russell.

But damn, yeah, Ashleigh was BEAUTIFUL, and that is only the second time I've truly felt that Travis deserved praise out the ying-yang, and of course, he didn't get it.

Nigel is still pissed at Ashleigh for taking Mollee's spot. In fact he was so full of bs tonight. Oh yes, you were a fan of Kathryn for weeks - not.

I have DI voting for Ashleigh too but it won't help. I actually think Russell might win. Jakob's pieces were not as standout as Russells.

Ashleigh and Ryan's number was gorgeous. Well done Travis (and I never say that!)
