Aaron is just wonderful. I just love him!!! Also loved Jasmine's routine and her look, there is just something about Aaron & Jasmine, together or separate.
I'm thinking that Amy placed herself at the top with the Travis Wall's routine. Travis was spectacular in it as was Amy. Anyone want to venture a guess who will win???
Ugh - lost my reply. This thing times out on me when I have a long response and sometimes it keeps it and other times my comments gets lost.
So to be brief. My top 4 would be Amy, Jasmine, Aaron and FikShun. I drop Paul and Hayley because I never remember them from week to week and I think the winner should be someone who's a good dancer and popular. I could go either way with Top Girl , but Top Guy should be Aaron.
I love the All-Stars, but I wish the judges would stop fawning over them and comment on only the contestant. If you want to do a a 'catch-up' with the All-star, it should be part of the pre-performance section or may interdispersed throughout the show (i.e. Allison interview before Travis/Amy performance, Travis interview before Comfort/Paul, etc. ) to avoid associating the all-star so much with what should be judged.
Mackenzie really blew me away during auditions, but for the most part she wasn't that memorable during the performances. I think that's why she was kept around for so long despite being in the bottom; they (okay, Nigel, maybe) wanted to give her another chance to show what she could do.
My picks are Amy and Aaron for the winners. Hard to believe Aaron was a last-minute substitute and almost missed the cut.
My top four are Amy, Jasmine, Paul and FikShun.
[QUOTE=heyang;755820]Best dancer doesn't always win as title is America's favorite dancer. (Unfortunately, this is often true.)
Just as with skating, it's harder to be too tall vs too short. (Not when it comes to pairs/dance.)
I am happy with the final three, not four. Are you Ok with the final 4???
I don't have a problem with the final 4 - they've been my favorites from week 1.
As I've mentioned before, I found Paul utterly forgettable. I didn't even remember him until the final 8 and I don't recall any particular performance of his either. ..... and I usually pick up on the dancers names pretty quickly.
Fik Shun is not the best dancer, but he has grown and he has charisma. I don't think he should be the winner. I do think he's done really well compared to other questionable past final 4's - i.e. Cyrus , Evan, etc. I can still recall some of his and Amy's performances in my mind's eye.
I think Jasmine should be top girl and Aaron should be top guy. I really think there's a possibility that Aaron will win. I know the other 3 have been in the bottom at least 1 time - can't recall if Aaron is ever in the bottom.
Forgot to add that the combos will be odd. You have the 2 tallest dancers and 2 of the shortest dancers. It'll be interesting how they handle the pairing of Jasmine and Fik Shun. He will have a hard time lifting her - perhaps they'll reverse the lifts.
I thought the choreography let them down a little this week.
Gabby Douglas did pretty well as a judge! :
