I thought Evan was very good. I thought Cole might go home .Hannahlei is such a bundle of lightness and joy when she dances. I think Skavik and Genessy nailed both dances and for me, they are in the lead..
Darius/Magda Bollywood..and jazz. Evan/Chelsea hip hop..contemporary Cole/Hannahlei..stepping..disco Jensen/Jay Jay contemporary..African jazz Slavik/Genessy..Jive...Broadway
I didn't think too much of the Bollywood number, I've seen better.
I didn't care for the stepping number either.
I know the judges loved the African jazz, it was just okay for me, boy Jensen looks like her sister! I didn't think this week, was as good as last week, but damn, they are all still really good!
How nerve wracking to be standing at the end like that..

The show is the icing on the cake for the top 10 dancers. They all get to go on tour, so they can really fully enjoy this opportunity & experience. The right dancers went home once the bottom 4 were revealed. It’s too early to breakup partnerships.
Loved the African Jazz, Jazz, and Contemporaries tonight. So great to see the Stepping piece, but I want Twitch to dance it with Hannahlei 😁
I'm sad to see Evan go, but I definitely wouldn't have wanted Cole to go home instead. I think Evan is a terrific dancer, but he just didn't seem to click with Chelsea or with the show. Definitely not surprised at Chelsea's elimination. IMO, she was the weakest of the girls.
I'm sad that Cole and Hannalei just don't seem to be clicking with each other the way the remaining three couples have. They're two of my favorite dancers, but they just don't feel like a solid pair yet.
Slavik is the biggest surprise for me this season. I'm really impressed with his work ethic and drive to learn the styles/choreo as well as he can and to improve his technique....and then doing it. Hearing him talking about pointing his toes made my little heart sing! Their jive was so much fun.
That Bollywood routine was a fun tribute to Holi, but I think I prefer the old-style Bollywood routines we've seen on the show. This one seemed slower and more balletic. I prefer those wildly energetic routines where they're just dancing at breakneck speed. That Disco routine was awesome! Raise your hands if you took Disco lessons!!!
I like Darius and Magda, but I think the strongest couples are JayJay and Jensen and Genessey and Slavik. I think those two boys are the best at supporting their partners, which is so important, especially for the guys.
I'm always surprised when dancers audition for this show (again, especially the guys) and then say they haven't done any partner work. I always wonder, "Have you SEEN this show before!?" It's like going on Hell's Kitchen without knowing how to make risotto! Even more so, since partner work is probably 2/3rds of this show, at least.
Mary and her Big Bird yellow dress and bright pink lipstick. Yikes!
Loved the disco number and Cole in purple spandex made me giggle. I'm a sucker for disco!
I think Chelsea was definitely hurt by the tap number and her lack of exposure during the audition shows. I don't remember them focusing on her at all. I really liked Evan, but he and Chelsea didn't have a lot of chemistry.
I'm loving Slavik...what a surprise. Did anyone else see his uncanny resemblance to Leonardo DiCaprio in that jive number? I had to do a double take.
I hope once the couples start getting mixed up because one is sent home, that they mix up the rest too. I like to see how different partners work with each other.
