Melissa Sandvig and Evan Kasprzak, Quickstep “As Long As I’m Singin'”—Brian Setzer Orchestra | Choreography by Louis van Amstel
Group dance: “Send in the Clowns”—Judy Collins (Broadway; Choreographer: Tyce Diorio)
Kayla Radomski and Brandon Bryant, Contemporary piece: “All I Want”—Ahn Trio | Choreography by Stacey Tookey
We have followed this season from the beginning and as it progressed we were hoping week after week that stars will emerge and we’ll really feel connected with the dancers rather than just become a viewer showing no interest to any of them. Last year and the previous years, there were stars and we could pick them early on. We became instant fans!
We are now at the Top 6. The final six dancers and we still don’t have any favorite male dancer. No one has emerged victor and a star. Evan is closest just because his style is unique but overall, he’s really not great with other form of dance. Ade or Brandon could be in the final two but Evan could be too; we have no problem because they’re all on equal footing. No standout. They could eliminate all three and we won’t miss them!
The only thing we can say at this point in the competition is We MISS MIAMI and wished she is in the Finale with Jeanine Mason. We want Janette Manrara in the finale! We couldn’t care about Melissa and Kayla no matter how we try. They are fabulous dancers and great at what they do but they are not “STARS” the way Janette and Jeanine are.
We are still griping over Janette’s elimination. America better not eliminate Jeanine Mason or else…

Dance Solo introduction plus recap of all dances
This is your most important numbers yet! Your call is crucial to who’s going into the Final 4, please vote for your favorites! We have the numbers here for you and their solos to remind you…
Kayla’s solo – “You Found Me” by the Fray – 1-888-836-7601
Ade’s solo – “18th floor balcony” by Blue October – 1-888-836-7602
Melissa’s solo – “I Put a Spell on You” by Nina Simone – 1-888-836-7603
Brandon’s solo – “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff – 1-888 – 836 -7604
An encore to Brandon’s audition performance of “O Fortuna” where Mary Murphy shed tears after witnessing the performance and exclaiming she’s gonna die this year if Brandon does not make it into the Top 20! Brandon was clever. It is the best solo ever on SYTYCD. If that solo does not get him into the Finale, we think we’ll just die this year…
Jeanine’s solo – “Feedback” by Janet Jackson – 1-888-836-7605
Evan’s solo – “Lady is a Tramp” by Sammy Davis Jr. – 1-888-836-7606
Always a class act. 3 E’s! Evan’s Broadway solos are exciting, entertaining and exquisite.
