SYTYCD: I'm Appalled

So I have to admit, I didn't actually watch the So You Think You Can Dance results show, but my sister gave me minute by minute updates via text. I was on the bus when she told me Will had been eliminated and Twitch was in the bottom two, and I actually gasped so loud other riders turned around to see what happened.

This is why middle America should not be allowed to vote. Will was by far the best technical dancer on the show, and each week was growing in personality and character. How Joshua and Marc were safe I will never understand. They are both good dancers, but in comparison to Will and Twitch - well there is no comparison.

While Will's solo Wednesday night definitely wasn't his strongest, it was no reason to send him packing.

It seems every year on both SYTYCD, and it's singing sister American Idol, the best dancers and singers and ones favored to be in the finale, are sent home in the top 6 or 8. We saw it with Alison in season 2 of SYTYCD and Michael John's last season on American Idol. I just don't understand what is wrong with American voters - are they oblivious to real talent?

Well, at least Comfort finally went home, and let's cross our fingers that this time it's for good.

So now I need to come up with a new prediction of who will win the grand prize, but quite frankly, I no longer care.
