    this girl better dance well, or else she will be gone fast. Her thing at the final judging did not sit too well with the judges she's lucky to have made it IMHO.

    I don't think she's lucky, because technically she was the better dancer and if anything they should have let her in anyways so that she can dance this year. But she's from San Jose and asian so she better represent!

    I liked seeing her doing that 3-step exercise routine with her friend Natalie. It looked like a lot of fun!

    Based on the "negativity" surrounding her in the last episode, I see America voting her out within the first few weeks. (Though personally I totally get her answer and don't fault her for it at all.)

    I actually liked her roommate's dancing better, but I hope she does well.

    My guess is that she picked SYTYCD over another project. She may have a career that far extends the show.

    i hope that people give her a chance because she has potential to be a really good dancer. i am looking for her to show a bit more confidence. also, i kind of think the judges were unfair to her for saying that she won't try out again. it's her life. she could find other dance outlets outside of sytycd.

    When the numbers were all shown together at the closing montage, I thought Katee and Joshua's dance was one of the best (along with Chelsie and Mark). I hope they stay another week!

    As I said in the discussion thread, I'm so happy that she and Josh did well with their hip-hop routine. I thought that her statement was really misunderstood, and she unfortunately lost some fans with it. But hopefully she gained some more fans with that amazing routine.

    They were the best of the night! Actually, I will go as far as saying it was one of my most favorite routines EVER.

    I loved her routine with Joshua. They are well matched and did a great jobl.
    I , myself, was turned off by the judges handling of that whole fiasco about coming back. I would pull for her just because of that - but she did an amazing job and I loved it.
