SYTYCD 5 Results Night: First Cut is the Deepest, Paris Torres and Tony Bellissimo Go Home


When they only get one shot to showcase what they can do after going through the ‘ordeal’ of the auditions, battling it out in Vegas- it doesn’t seem fair that two people are going home most especially in the first week of the entire season. But such is this type of show. America votes on their favorites and if the contestants don’t leave that first GREAT impression, that’s it for them.

Beauty queen Contemporary dancer Paris Torres and pretty boy Hip hop dancer Tony Bellissimo are cut in SYTYCD’s first elimination of the season. There is ‘justice’ after all, that or America is getting wiser in picking up who should go home. A “pretty face” is no longer enough to keep one in the competition- but the exceptional dancing does. We didn’t particularly like Tony and we think his “crying” stints in Vegas put him in the competition more than his hiphop- that or he looks good on TV. Paris we would have wanted to see more of. The Hiphop routine they did with no charracter or storyline to work on with unlike Philip and Jeanine’s routine was their downfall.

The judges kept Contemporary dancer Karla who did a better solo over Paris. Asuka was picked accounting to her previous performances in Vegas week despite being limited to latin ballroom and jive in doing her solo. All the guys performed their solos poorly. Vitolio who fared ok than Tony and Jonathan was picked to safety first. Tony was let go for his “locking” solo that didn’t really lock it for him or the judges. Because of that, Jonathan was safe.
