SO….how'd they do?

The dancers tonight seemed a bit off in general when they were doing their pair work.  Solos were banoodles, IV real (I’m so using the SYTYCD lingo).  Hip hop with Nappy Tab’s choreography and Twitch/Courtney was just okay for me.  I felt like it could have been so much better.  And forgive me if I go out of order – it was a long night – I’m glad to see Wade back even though I didn’t think it was the greatest choreography we’ve ever seen from him.  Joshua and Katee did a fantastic job with it, regardless.  I totally thought the girls’ Broadway routine was lacking in something.  It just didn’t seem together, it felt unrehearsed.  But that’s just me and I’m so not a dancer so I may have missed something.  The Russian Trepak.  Meh.  I mean, good for Joshua and his high jumps (with a jump extension like that, there is no way he hasn’t had some sort of training).  And Twitch was okay.  But the whole thing just kind of felt mediocre….The Twitch/Katee foxtrot was beautiful.  The Jive with Joshua and Courtney felt like they just didn’t get it.  And I agree with the judges when they say that these kids are just so tired, they don’t really have the stamina to do all the dancing they did, so they did okay with what they had to work with.  I just wished it would have been more spot on, more exciting.  The Mia Michaels routine was all over the place – I’m with Nigel when he said he didn’t know what he was watching ha.  I did like the feeling of “this is it, we’ve made it this far” that the dance inspired, but beyond that, my overall reaction to the evening is “well that was pretty okay”.  I will say though that it pisses me off that Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel are Emmy nominees for doing nothing really, and Cat Deeley kicks total rear with her little sit downs and her genuine caring…

That’s my take…what’s yours?  Who did you vote for?  Who is going to win this thing?
