So You Think You Can Dance – Week 6: Down to 14

So You Think You Can Dance continues with another week of competition as this end of the summer hit starts eliminations, hoping to once again top the ratings charts as it did last week. The show did manage to top the voting numbers past live voting shows had received – the premiere even doing better than American Idol‘s voting premiere.

This week’s two-hour broadcast began with a 30 minute voting results show that was taped last week. During this part of the broadcast, we learned the results of America’s voting – answering the question of which two of the six dancers would be sent home from the first official week of competition. The choices were between Sandra, Snow, Michelle, Jonnis, Allan and Artem. The results were drawn out, but when it was all said and done, we knew that Sandra and Jonnis would not be returning. Neither of them leaving was really a surprise, especially Jonnis after his behavior following his performance on last week’s show.

Once the results show ended, we moved on to this week’s competition. The fourteen pair off into seven couples in the same manner they did on last week’s show. The only difference is that this week the girls pick their partners, and the men pick the style of dance. For scoring the highest number of votes by the American public, Allan is given the chance to choose the partner he doesn’t want to dance with. His choice being Snow, his dance partner on last week’s show.

This week, the dance styles are hip hop, lyrical jazz, salsa and the quick step. The quick step did give the couples the most trouble. Snow had no problem, but her partner, hip hopper Jamile, didn’t do as well.

The competition definitely took it up a notch this week, and the judges were hard to please. Mary Murphy took over judging duties from Mia Michaels this week, but the other three judges remained the same – Dan Karaty, Nigel Lythgoe, and Brian Friedman.

Each of the performances has something to offer, and this made it difficult for the judges to pick the three couples for elimination. Blake shined like he did last week, and according to the judges, Destini, his partner again this week, also performed well. However, I’m wondering if Destini had been paired with another dancer the last two weeks that she would still be on the show. At the very least, she should have been selected for the bottom six one of the two weeks.

My favorite couple of the night once again is Ryan and Melissa. They worked on a Salsa routine with choreographer Alex Da Silva. They come out on top, ending the night of competition on a good note. How well Ryan is doing is surprising, as it is known he has no formal dance training. Other favorites of mine are Allan and Kamilah.

The bottom six this week set for elimination are: Craig, Jamile, Melody, Michelle, Nick, and Snow. Michelle and Snow were also up for elimination last week, but the rest of the six are new additions to the bottom six. As they were last week, the dancers are given a forty-five second freestyle performance in order to redeem themselves.

Out of the males, none of them really stood up for me, but if I had to choose one, my choice would be Nick. For me, the females really stepped it up here, and that made it more difficult for me to choose whom I would vote for. If given a choice, I’d have voted for both Melody and Michelle. Once again, Snow’s performance didn’t move me much, but the other two females definitely made me take notice.

I think the show has definitely made a turn around from earlier weeks. The first two episodes, I found myself bored senseless, but now I look forward to each and every episode. The competition is fierce, and following ABC’s dance hit Dancing with the Stars I’m a bit familiar with the dance styles, and what the judges may be looking for. I’m waiting to see, along the rest of America, who will be sent home next.

In other So You Think You Can Dance news, People online has reported that show’s host, Lauren Sanchez, wed boyfriend, Patrick Whitesell, over the weekend. Whitesell is an agent to such stars as Jessica Alba, Hugh Jackman, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The ceremony took place August 20th in Santa Barbara, California. After a quick honeymoon, Lauren was back to host tonight’s show. Best of luck to the new bride and her groom.

What did you think of this week’s competition? Did you agree with the dancers that the judges chose for the bottom six? Who has your vote America? Let me know what you think.

    Does anyone know the song from the show on 8/24 by lifehouse? It was at the end of the show when that bottom dancers were dancing for there 20 seconds to prove they were better. I believe the dancer was Nick Lazzarini. Please e-mail me if you know the name of this song. Thank you!

    The title of the song Nick danced to is call “Storm” by Blyss aka Lifehouse.

    How long have I been in this storm
    So overwhelmed by the oceans shapeless form
    Water’s getting harder to tred
    With these waves crashing over my head

    If I could just see you
    Everything would be alright
    If I had to see you
    This darkness would turn to light
    And I would walk on water
    And you will catch me if I fall
    And I will get lost into your eyes
    And everything will be alright
    Everything will be alright

    Know you didn’t bring me out here to drown
    So why am I ten feet under and upside down
    Barely surviving has become my purpose
    Cause I’m so used to living underneath the surface

    If I could just see you
    Everything would be alright
    If I had to see you
    This darkness would turn to light
    And I would walk on water
    And you will catch me if I fall
    And I will get lost into your eyes
    And everything will be alright

    And I will walk on water
    You will catch me if I fall
    And I will get lost into your eyes
    And everything will be alright
    Now everthing is alright
    Everything is alright

    What was the name of the song Snow danced to free style on August 24th. I know it was by Lucas Prata?

  • Helen

    I think that Nick and Craig are awesome! They have such a presence. They are so genuine when they dance, I love to watch them!

    Sorry to add this but I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the song that Craig danced to for his 45 second solo?

  • Leeya

    Craig danced to The Calling’s “Wherever You Will Go”.

    So lately, been wondering
    Who will be there to take my place
    When I’m gone you’ll need love
    To light the shadows on your face

    If a great wave shall fall
    And fall upon us all
    Then between the sand and stone
    Could you make it on your own

    If I could, then I would
    I’d go wherever you will go
    Way up high or down low
    I’ll go wherever you will go

    And maybe, I’ll find out
    A way to make it back someday
    To watch you, to guide you
    Through the darkest of your days

    If a great wave shall fall
    And fall upon us all
    Then I hope there’s someone out there
    Who can bring me back to you

    Run away with my heart
    Run away with my hope
    Run away with my love

    I know now, just quite how
    My life and love might still go on
    In your heart, in your mind
    I’ll stay with you for all of time

    If I could turn back time
    I’ll go wherever you will go
    If I could make you mine
    I’ll go wherever you will go
    I’ll go wherever you will go

    Well, I am an exasperated dance teacher in Honolulu. My DVR that has been recording all the episodes experienced an “unrecoverable write error” and now it is totally blank. How can I obtain the last few weeks episodes? If you can help burn a DVD/VHS please please do and I’ll pay too!!! thanks, nina

    Once again, a good idea is trashed in favor of “high ratings”. To see these young people work as hard, and then allow the final decisions to be based on someone having a “good personality” is not right. Having a good personality or being “liked” does not translate to having talent. I blame the judges or the people behind the judges. While I will concede that Allan seems to be a “good young man”, and obviously has a pleasant personality, there is NO WAY that he should have been allowed to go this far in the show. By extending his stay, he will eventually also handicap one of the female dancers when he performs something other than hip hop. If you are going to showcase these young people, do it based on talent, not on personality. Thank you for listening.

    The name of the song that Artem & Ashle and Blake & Destini danced to this week is “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.

    The name of the song the last guy (Nick) danced to is “Storm” by Lifehouse.

    The name of the song Snow danced her solo to this week is “And She Said” by Lucas Prata.

    Nina Foster, http://www.rickey.org has clips of most of the performances. Maybe that’ll help you a little. I’m sorry you lost the shows.

  • Jamie

    What were the songs that the two lyricals were to on the August 17th show? Please help! Thanks

  • jamie

    I meant the August 24th show? Lyrical i think it was Nick and Partner?

  • Liz

    Nick never performed lyrical.

    He did Hip-Hop with Kamilah on the 17th, and that song was “Touch” by Omarion.

    He did the Foxtrot this week, but I don’t know what that song is.

    The lyricals done on the 24th and 17th were both done by Blake/Destini and Artem. The song used for lyrical on the 24th was “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.

    The song used for lyrical on the 17th was “Nora” by Blessed Union of Souls.

    Let me know if that helped…

  • melissa

    Craig is an awesome dance but his lyrical jazz dance was not that informative to us non jazz dancers…his interpetive lyrical jazz I do not think drew the crowd in like Nicks and Jamiles did…but Craig will definitely be a household name soon…he will go on and do better things and make a career out of it.

  • audrey

    Love this show
    Was disappointed with the 2 ballroom dances the judges did not like. As a dancer you have to do your very best with the choreography that is given to you. The “Cha Cha” choreography was the problem not the dancers. I believe they did their very best with a choregrapher that staged too many tricks that did not smoothly work into any actual cha cha moves. The choreographer forgot to let the music – the soul of the dance to come forward in the steps created. If the dancers are going to be judged – then the choreographers should also be judged as well.

  • Monica Molina

    I love the show but i think it is a little unfair. Its the luck of the draw kinda thing. All the dance couples should have to dance the same dance with the same moves. How can you compare a foxtrot against a hip hop dance. Also one choreographer may kick butt compared to what another comes up with. I think it should be all couples doing same routines and winners by who does it the best. To me thats the only fair way to judge. One week all do hip hop next week all do lyrical etc etc.

  • Crystal
