12/01 SYTYCD 6 Top 10 Perform! Some favorites emerge.

This is our first time writing about the dancers this season. We do feel that the top ten are indeed the top ten. There were some disappointments along the way, but overall, these ten are the most deserving. That said, we do have our favorites already.

We knew were were out of sync a bit with the judges on this show when Nigel called Krump “sedentary”. We sincerely recommend that Nigel get a dictionary and thesaurus or to just stop trying to use big words.

The dances were all excellent this week, but we have to disagree with the judges on some of their criticisms. Let’s start with the couple dances and leave the solos to the end.


Ryan and Noelle – This was a contemporary piece choreographed by Tabitha and Napoleon and music by Melanie Fiona- “Give it To Me Right”. Ryan, as always, was incredibly handsome and captivating with his personality. Noelle shocked us and gets the ranking of the most cosmetically changed dancer this week. In prior weeks we saw her as rather dull. This week she was hot. This dance brought out her sexiness along with a new do that really got our attention. The couple together are extremely sexy and danced this piece with spark. The theme was an office pursuit by the boss (Ryan) that ends up with a harassment suit. Well, if Noelle acted like this in person in the office, no one could blame Ryan. She smoked this. Ryan was the penultimate partner. But he wasn’t the central focus of this pairing. Both were in sync perfectly when they had to be, though, and Ryan clearly helped Noelle shine. The guitar playing of the dance was corny, but the rest was sheer sexuality and talent. Nigel called it last week saying Noelle wasn’t sexy enough. He changed his tune this week, as did we. She has the capability of playing the vixen. Dance was superb. (9/10)

Ashleigh and Legacy – We like these two as independent dancers. We aren’t sure about this pairing. So it is good they got a dance that did not play them as close partners, but as cooperative singles. The dance reminded us of the video game street fighters. The theme was to have the couple battling each other physically, and it brings to mind some of the somewhat corny karate scenes on TV on shows such as “Alias”. It was interesting choreography presented by Gary Stuart. Both Ashleigh and Legacy were in perfect sync, and played their combative roles perfectly. Contemporary is not Ashleigh’s style, but you would never know it from this dance. The ending was perfect with Ashleigh standing facing Legacy, but holding his legs as he stood rigidly on his head, something that we mere humans could never do.The dance was excellent, but there were more to come that were just as stellar, so going this early in the show could have this excellent piece go a bit into obscurity. (9/10)

Katherine and Nathan – We found this to be a superb Broadway piece choreographed by Danny Kaye. It had an old world feel from days of the great musicals like Oklahoma or West Side Story. This was more romantic though like a Fred Astaire movie. It started off great, and Nathan was moving well, keeping his happy character in tune with the dance. Katherine was the stronger performer. She looked flawless and beautiful at the same time. A true leading lady. Nathan, while dancing quite well, does not go with Katherine. It looks like a sixteen year old courting a 24 year old in a dance where the man should be leading. He can dance it, but he can’t play the part convincingly, which is key to Broadway. This was a fun piece, fun to watch, but Nathan lacked charisma. (8/10)

Ellenore and Jakob – Ellenore has a major quirkiness about her and we love the personality she brings to the dance floor. She reminds of Cheryl Burke from Dancing with the Stars. At first Jakob didn’t look the part, but man, can this guy move. Usually we don’t comment on the speed of a man’s legs in dance, but Jakob’s move at the speed of light. Ellenore has a way of looking nearly perfect on the floor. Great smile, fantastic hair and posture. She kept right up with Jakob on this dance and they partnered wonderfully. The chemistry we thought couldn’t be there- was there in spades, to which we give kudos to Ellenore. The couple was smiling ear to ear throughout and had us smiling as well by the time this dance was done. (9/10)

Mollee and Russell – This was a lyrical jazz piece that was choreographed by Mandy Moore. It is a beautiful piece, but blurs the lines between contemporary and jazz. It started off with a touching embrace, with incredible feeling, We have to give Russell an A for effort on this piece. He does an overhead lift and shows diversity way beyond his untrained Krump background. Still, we watched this twice to see if we were wrong after the judges praised him and, well, he was awkward. While he didn’t drop the ball and fought his way through, he didn’t leave us feeling we had watched a professional. Mollee looked mature well beyond her age. Perfect performance by Mollee. (8/10)


Round 2

Noelle and Ryan – This was a graceful waltz, and Ryan was, as usual, at his best at ballroom style. They provided the Cinderella experience for us all, and lifted us gracefully into a clouded world of fantasy in which we fell asleep. It is very difficult to get into a waltz after some of the powerful artwork and personal expression that comes out of a contemporary dance. Probably why the contemporary dancers tend to take the lead season after season, and why ballroom dances eventually fall short. Still this was a nearly perfect waltz. (8/10)

Kathryn and Nathan – A rumba choreographed by Tony and Melanie did not leave us standing nor did it give us any goose bumps. Nathan was frowning and portraying an angry character throughout trying to be intimidating and just came across as silly. At the end when being judged he kept on this angry foolish face. We think he danced well, but character is as important as posture in this competition and he did not portray the leading man well. Not believable at all. Kathryn on the other hand was stunning and flawless. Loved her. Once again, we hope she is not associated with Nathan’s less than stellar performance. (7/10)

Ashleigh and Legacy – Time to bring out an old theme. The vampire. Legacy came out with his cape dressed like the Count, but, unlike Dracula, was unable to turn them into a pair of wings in this piece. His cape certainly contributed to the problem taking away his ability to perform his more exciting moves in this dance, but his lack of training showed as well. Ashleigh was flawless and for her sake, we hope the audience didn’t notice Legacy or associate him with her performance. (7/10)

Ellenore and Jacob – This was an extremely quirky contemporary piece which fit Ellenore to a T choreographed by Sonya. It also allowed Jacob to show how well he can act. When he stands still before the judges he looks effeminate and humble. But when he had to play a dark character, he shows he has acting down. Unlike Legacy and Nathan, he is believable in his portrayal of a character. He has chemistry with anyone, but the chemistry in this piece was stunning. You would have thought they had danced it a million times. They played off of Ellenore’s move and pause technique and had many moments with Ellenore still portraying her character. Her facial expression and personality shine through. She has become our most memorable girl. And Jacob stole the show from all the other men. He looked fearful and dark, in direct contrast to his true character. This was the best of season so far and possibly the best of all time on this show. If you missed it, and watch it now!! (10/10)

Mollie and Russell – Man, who would want to follow up Eleanor and Jakob’s piece. What can one do but be perfect? This was a standard rock dance and required a ton of energy to pull off. And these two dancers are all energy. This brought Russell back onto our best liked list after his last dance, which the judges liked, but we were less impressed with. Russell’s lifts, throws and enthusiasm ruled this dance. He was both fun and exciting to watch. They nailed this performance, and if not for Ellenore and Jakob, would have been the best of the night. (9.8/10)


Mollee – Mollee always does her solo’s well. She looks so young it is disconcerting and hard, at times, to take seriously. But when she dances, watch out. She is a firestorm. She did a sexy solo, shaking about curly locks obscuring her face and her youth. Wearing jeans that looked to be sure were painted on, she still pulled off flex moves that would challenge a rubber band. She is the most athletic of the girl’s this season and clearly has the most energy. It showed and she had a great solo. (9/10)

Noelle – We found Noelle incredibly sexy in her first couples dance, but in her solo she was back a bit to her cutesy look. She needs to pick sexier outfits for her solo or it is hard to be drawn to her. She can dance superbly, but it felt like this solo wasn’t quite up to Mollee’s. Still, this lady can stand on her toes wile pirouetting and that shows signs of hard training and a background in ballet. (8/10)

Ryan – Now, ballroom dancers always have a weakness in solo’s. They cannot typically dance with the strength and diversity of a trained contemporary or jazz dancer. It appears impossible for a ball room dancer to win this competition. Ryan, though, has this major charisma that carries him beyond the dance. In this dance he came across as a superhero. And we expect he could be in the next Superman musical. Unfortunately, his moves are more theatrical than challenging. (8/10)

Kathryn – Kathryn is all grace. She can move with strength, but you are captivated more by her ability to mesmerize you with smooth elegance. However, in this solo, she did not thrill us. It didn’t have that edge required for competition. (7/10)

Russell – Of course, Russell does Krump. Nigel said it was sedentary. WE hope he was joking. This was powerful. We have not really understood krump until now, and we can tell you, Russell defines it. (10/10)

Nathan – No doubt Nathan is one of the most talented dancers on this show, but he has a personality that does not appeal. He overdoes things, crying at the end of the dance and making frowning angry faces throughout his solo. It turned us off. (7/10)

Ellenore– If quirkiness could win this competition, Eleanor has that in spades. Her movements are so unexpected at times and her jerky movements are her trademark. A quick move and a pause. Then another. Then another. All providing the viewer a chance to view her position. However, Eleanor is not as talented a dancer as Noelle or Kathryn when it comes to solos. (7/10)

Legacy – We have seen some great break dancers on this show. Legacy is better than any of them. Some of his moves just don’t seem humanly possible. His solos are incredible to watch and in this lies his strength. No one is more fun to watch or more amazing. At the end you are just shaking your head and wondering how he does it. (10/10)

Ashleigh – What is most amazing about Ashleigh is the character she becomes when dancing. When you look at her standing still, she isn’t much to look at. But when she dances, she takes on a different aura. Her legs are fast, surely, but not as fast as some dancers from prior years. But her ability to draw us in during her dancing and her sexiness is unquestionable She comes across as in control and fearless. This is where she is meant to be. (9/10)

Jakob – If we were to have to set the odds in Las Vegas for the most probable to win this competition, Jakob is it. He isn’t assuming and is so incredibly talented. While he has a bit of an effeminate personality, it isn’t overplayed and he is lovable and graceful in personality. But when he dances, well, there is no one this season that holds a candle to him. (10/10)

That leaves it time to put our dancers in place.

1. Jakob
2. Ellenore
3. Mollie
4. Noelle
5. Russell
6. Ashleigh
7. Ryan
8. Kathryn
9. Legacy
10. Nathan

This is how we think it will play out. Nathan gets to the bottom not for his talent or dancing as much as his personality. Legacy showed major cracks in his ability to do other than break dancing. We cannot see him winning the competition, and he could go as well, but we figure he has a much bigger following because of his superhuman tricks during the solos. Kathryn was great, but was impacted in our judgement by Nathan and drawn down the list. Ryan is great and fun to watch, but so far behind Jakob and not growing as impressively as Russell. We don’t believe we need to explain the rest other than to say if Jakob doesn’t get hit by a truck, he already won the season.

There you go.

From Fox Dance Profile:

I started dance when I was 3 years old at The Dance Connection, which was a studio owned by my mom. Not too long after she closed her studio to attend college for nursing, I began dancing at Augusta West Dance Studio which was the studio my mom also grew up at. I quit when I was 10, after a year with no dance I decided I couldn’t live without it. I resumed my training at the same studio. My sophomore year of high school I began to take my dancing more seriously, on top of performing/competing with my “home” studio, I began attending a separate school for ballet training.

After high school, at the age of 18, I moved straight to Los Angeles to begin more training and auditioning. I recently worked on a small part in the remake of Fame and I’m now honored to say that I am a part of SYTYCD Season 6.

How do I vote?
Each contestant will be assigned a toll-free telephone number during the performance shows which feature voting.  However, during the first 3 weeks of voting (starting Tuesday, November 10th, 2009), contestants will perform as couples and each dance couple will be assigned a toll-free telephone number during those performance shows.  To vote, simply watch “So You Think You Can Dance” on FOX each week (see local listings for times in your area) and dial the telephone number of the contestant(s) for whom you wish to vote.  Voting will open at the end of each performance show which features voting.  DO NOT call before the end of the show as the lines will not be open.  For the first 2 weeks of performance shows (October 27th and November 3rd) the results will be decided by the judges and no voting will take place.  During those first 2 weeks the judges’ elimination decisions will be revealed at the end of each performance show.  For all other performance shows which feature voting the results of the vote will be revealed in the results shows that will also air on FOX later the same week (see local listings for details). Rules and procedures are subject to change at producers’ discretion without notice.

Who can vote?
Anyone calling from within the continental US, Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands can cast their vote for “So You Think You Can Dance”.

When can I vote?
For the weeks when the public votes on performances, voting for “So You Think You Can Dance” will open at the end of the performance show each week (see local listings for times in your area) and will stay open for at least 2 hours, subject to time zone restrictions.  Outside of these times, the toll-free lines will play a busy signal and your call will not count as a vote.

Is it true that some people can cast votes outside of the 2 hour window after the show?
No, this is not true. As part of the process to ensure that the “So You Think You Can Dance” voting system is accurate and ready for the public to call and vote, a test window is built into the toll-free system for the morning of each vote show.  During this test window, anyone calling the toll-free numbers from a phone with a West Coast area code will hear the ‘thanks for voting’ message.  This vote window is for testing purposes only and any calls received during this time do not count as valid votes.  Your votes will only count if you call during your valid 2 hour vote window after the performance show, subject to time zone limitations.  Outside of these hours, votes will not count, even if you hear the ‘thanks for voting’ message.

How much does it cost to vote?
Telephone calls to the “So You Think You Can Dance” voting lines are toll-free from landlines so you will not be charged to vote.  If you use a cell phone to call, airtime and applicable roaming and long distance charges will apply.

Can I vote by using my cell phone?
Yes, you can vote using your cell phone, although airtime and applicable roaming and long distance charges will apply to toll-free numbers from cell phones.  Contact your cell phone service provider if you want to know how much you will be charged.

If you are calling from a cell phone and you are in a different time zone from your cell phone number, the system will accept or reject your vote based on the time zone of your cell phone area code.  For example, if you have a New York cell phone area code but are calling from Los Angeles, you will be voting outside the East Coast voting window and your vote will not be accepted.  Try calling again from a land line telephone during the West Coast voting window.

Text message voting is not available for “So You Think You Can Dance”.

I couldn’t get through to the lines or all I get is a busy signal when I call – why?
Although the telephone network is designed to handle huge volumes of calls simultaneously, there may be times (particularly just after the show) when it will not be able to handle every single call due to the sheer volume.  If you are calling during your voting window but can’t get through to cast your vote, be patient and try again.

If you hear the fast busy signal, it may be that you are calling outside of the voting window.  When your voting window closes, lines will switch from a ‘thank you for voting’ message to a fast busy signal.

If you are sure you are calling within your voting window but still can’t get through, it may be that your local phone company has been flooded with calls.  Try waiting a few minutes before calling again.  If you still have problems, contact your local phone company.

If you are calling from a cell phone with an area code that is in a different time zone from that in which you are calling, the system will accept or reject your vote based on the time zone of your cell phone’s area code.  For example, if you have a New York cell phone area code but are calling from Los Angeles, you will be voting outside the East Coast voting window and your vote will not be accepted.  Try calling again from a land line telephone during the West Coast voting window.

Can I vote if I subscribe to a digital phone service or VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) service?
Yes, you can vote if you subscribe to some digital or internet-based phone systems, such as Vonage or Skype. However, note that digital phone and VOIP services often re-route outgoing calls to a different geographical location from which the call is being made. As a result, you may only be able to vote in the voting window to which your call has been re-routed. If you are trying to vote in the regular voting window for your region and your call is re-routed outside of your region by your service provider, you will not be able to vote (instead, you will hear a fast busy signal). However, you still have the availability to vote during the other voting window. For further information, contact your digital phone or VOIP service provider.

When I called one of the toll-free lines, I heard the wrong dancer’s (or couple’s) number – why?
All lines for “So You Think You Can Dance” are tested before going on-air to make sure the lines work properly and are playing out the correct audio.  If you call and hear the wrong contestant’s number (or dance couple’s number), it’s possible you accidentally misdialed, so check the number and dial again.

What will I hear if I call the toll-free numbers?
Voting begins at the end of the performance show when ALL of the contestants have performed – if you call before then, you will hear a busy signal and your vote will NOT count.

At the end of the performance shows which feature voting, phone lines will be opened and voting can begin.  Voting lasts for at least 2 hours, subject to local time zone restrictions, from the end of the show and during that time you will hear a pre-recorded message thanking you for voting for your chosen contestant(s).  Each contestant (or dance couple, during the first 3 weeks of voting) will have their own number read/shown on air, and the phone message will confirm for whom you have voted.  After the voting window closes, no more votes will be accepted and lines will play out a busy signal.

When I called, I was told to call a “900” number – isn’t “So You Think You Can Dance” voting toll-free?
If you call to vote for your favorite “So You Think You Can Dance” contestant(s) and hear a message to call a “900? number, or if you hear anything other than ‘thanks for voting’, you have misdialed.  Do not call this “900? number to vote as “900? numbers are not connected to “So You Think You Can Dance” voting.  Please try the “So You Think You Can Dance” toll-free numbers again, dialing carefully.

How do I know my vote has been counted?
Your vote will count if you vote during your valid voting window and hear the ‘thanks for voting’ message.  If you do not hear a pre-recorded message thanking you for voting, your vote did not count.

How do I find out the results?
“So You Think You Can Dance” will air a performance show Tuesdays on FOX each week (see your local listings for show times) and, with the exception of the first 2 vote weeks when the results of the judges’ elimination choices will be revealed at the end of the performance shows, the results of each vote will be revealed in the results show on FOX each Wednesday (see local listings for details).  So make sure you don’t miss a single minute of ”So You Think You Can Dance” each week if you want to see how your vote affected the results!

What’s being done about power dialing?
The “So You Think You Can Dance” voting process is administered and carefully monitored by an independent vote management company. The producers, in consultation with this independent vote management company, reserve the right to remove so-called “power dialing” votes that are identified as having been cast in such a significant block, either by technical enhancements or otherwise, that it could unfairly influence the outcome of the voting.

Why can’t I vote by the toll-free numbers using a payphone?
Votes from payphones will be blocked.  To vote for your favorite contestant(s), use a standard land line telephone or cell phone.  If you use a cell phone to call, airtime and applicable roaming and long distance charges will apply.

Only toll-free phone voting is available for “So You Think You Can Dance”.

Dance Signature Move:

Nathan tried playing several different sports as a kid, but says he was never very good at any of them. Inspired by his older brother, a hip-hop and contemporary dancer, he decided to start taking classes when he was 10. He credits his parents for his success: “In middle school, kids started making fun of me, so in 7th grade, my parents moved me to Orange County High School of the Arts. I appreciate my parents so much. They paid so much money to send me there [despite] having problems with money … I’m very emotional right now … There have been so many ups and downs in my life and they’ve always supported me. I just want to make them proud.” by Korbi Ghosh, Zap2it
