SYTYCD S8: Vegas Week

It's always interesting to me how the show will focus on a bunch of dancers in the audition rounds that don't make it very far in Vegas. I think only five out of however many were featured (ie we know their names) made it through Vegas week. Well, I should say, only five that were given much focus. For example, one of my favorite auditions came from Melanie Moore, and while she wasn't given much focus this week, she is still in the running. I think she could make the show, too. I hope she does, anyway.

Recap/review of So You Think You Can Dance - Season 8 - Vegas Week by freshfromthe.comBut I think the real story of Vegas week belonged to the Mallory sisters, Natalia and Sasha. I just have this feeling that they're going to have picked the top 9 dancers and bring those two out, ultimately choosing between the pair of them. It's how they like to do things on this show, after all. Which one will they pick? I'm not entirely sure, but I have a feeling. I'm not going to say right now. But I'll tell you tomorrow if I'm right! Wahaha! The power!

Not really. It's not like I'm making the decisions here, which ultimately seem super tough. I feel like half of the top 20 are going to be dancers we've hardly seen up until this point, right? The only other dancers that I could pick out that got some focus before and are still around are Jordan Casanova, Lil O, and Ryan Ramirez. And maybe Wadi Jones? Honestly I can't remember his audition, but who the heck knows.

One guy we saw just a little tiny clip of I already like. I have no idea what his name is, but I termed him "cute Asian" in my head. Very classy classification systems in my head, yep.

Really, I don't know what else to say about tonight's episode. I don't particularly feel like going through all of the people who got cut, other than to say "YES!" to a couple of them, because they annoyed me. Ahem, Chyna Smith. Ahem, Amber Williams... Really any annoying blonde, apparently. Annoying blondes, be gone!

Can I also confess that when Ryan was given her chance to do the contemporary and got to dance with Robert from last season, all I could do was watch him? Robert! Does anyone else find Ryan kind of offputting? It's something about her legs. This sounds ridiculous, I shouldn't be saying these things. Oh well.

I apologize for the really haphazard nature of this recap! Yikes.

Tomorrow we find out the top 20! Who do you want to make it?

Previous Episode -- Next Episode


  1. i totally agree with you, about ryan and the legs situation. she's a good dancer, but i see nothing special. not sorry bout it.

  2. Loved the bit about the "cute Asian" - I don't know his name either but knew I liked him.

    Totally agree about the sisters being the final 2 - SYTYCD and their DRAMA!

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is disturbed by Ryan's legs. There's just something about her that bugs. Honestly I don't think she'd make it very far on the show if she did make it, but what do I know?

    Yay for cute Asians! If we can't have Alex Wong, at least we can have him, right?

    I will be surprised if they DON'T make the sisters the final two to decide between!

  4. Isn't Alex supposed to be coming back for this season? No one has said a word about it!! And it's so sad I've literally planned my night (out of town for work) around the show. I've ordered room service for 8:00 so that I can watch and not miss a thing and my plan is to work before and after the show. I'm so excited to see top 20!! and I said same thing last night that last two for girl spots will be the sisters. And I think Sasha will get it b/c last night on commercials for tonight Mary was crying and saying "you're an inspiration to so many people..." I think that was her talking to Natalie...we'll see if I guessed right.

  5. (do not read this comment if you have not seen the show tonight!!!!!)

    I was right!! It was Sasha!
