So You Think You Can Choreograph?

So You Think You Can Dance has become more about the choreography, music selection, costumes and contestants' personalities than actual dancing. During last night's episode we heard more about the stories behind the dances, applause for the choreographers and how the costumes distracted the audience, then about the technique and performance of the dancers.

Already into the second week of the live show, I have yet to really become attached to any of the dancers. Sure I have my favorite couples (Kherington and Twitch and Katee and Joshua), but most of the dancers have failed to impress. And there is no single dancer that I can say I really want to win it all. This week I think almost any couple can be in the bottom three.

Chelsea and Thayne
This is the second miss for Mandy Moore. After last weeks odd routine to Tainted Love with Kourtni and Matt, this weeks piece about a king trying to win over his love fell flat. But the judges seemed to think this dance was genius. I didn't get it. There was barely any movement. Most of the dance consisted of Thayne walking around in a circle, which is sad because from what I can tell he is a pretty good dancer. I expect to see them in the bottom.

Kourtni and Matt
I really loved Kourtni's first audition. But since then she has not lived up to the hype. She looks gawky and heavy (not in a fat way, in an ungraceful way) when she dances. The couple's fox trot was awkward and messy. Kourtni's hands were all over the place and even her developes didn't really flow. While Matt was a little more graceful, all together the dance was a snooze. I am a little nervous that if they are placed in the bottom three, Matt will be kicked off given the judges' warnings last week.

Courtney and Gev
First there was Alison and Ivan. Then Sabra and Dominic. Now it's Courtney and Gev. Sure they aren't the best couple in terms of technique, but I am a sucker for a dance romance. There is nothing better than a breaker pinning for a lyrical dancer who already has a boyfriend.

Susie and Marquis
It's mean, but it was an lol moment for me when Alex de Silva called Susie a street salsa dancer, provoking tears from the pink streaked contestant. Proving yet again that she does not belong in this competition, her salsa (which is supposed to be her forte) was a mess, and not a hot one at that. Marquis wasn't much better, but my eyes were glued to Susie trying to figure out exactly why she was chosen for the top 20 over Kelli Baker. If they aren't in the bottom three I quit the show.

Katee and Joshua
Once again these two nailed it. While I don't think their Broadway routing was as jump-up-and-down fantastic as the judges did , they were definitely better than the majority of the couples. There is no way these two can be in the bottom three.

Jessica and Will
The judges praised Will, but told Jessica she paled next to his talent after their hip hop routine. But really I didn't think either one of them were that strong. I get why the judges predict Will will be in the finale (his solo last week was phenomenal), but this is the second week his duo was sub par, and whether or not you want to blame it on Jessica, it takes two to tango.

Chelsie and Mark
Not bad for an Argentine Tango, one of my least favorites of all the Ballrooms. While it wasn't very memorable, I think it was enough to keep them out of the bottom three.

Kherington and Twitch
I don't know if it was Jean Marc Genereaux's touching story about his daughter who lost her motor skills, the Celine Dion song, or my complete love for the duo, but Kherington and Twitch were my favorite of the night. Despite my detest for the smooth (aka snooze) waltz, the two pulled it off. Reminiscent of Mia Michael's season 3 contemporary dance dedicated to her dead father, I have to admit I did tear up. Neither dance had the best choreography, but the emotion behind the routines sold them.

Comfort and Chris
What exactly is krumping, because to me it looked a whole lot like hip hop. While no one expected Chris (aka the tree) to be able to pull off the hard-hitting urban style, for being Comfort's expertise I expected a lot more from her. I'd bet these two are in the bottom.
