I haven't watched much of this show this season, but its always been one of my favorites so I decided to put it on last night. After nearly an hour I had only seen two partner dances. Four judges are too many. It was too many on Idol and its too many on SYTYCD. Neither dance I saw struck me as all that exciting. I don't know if I'll try again or not. I really want to be as excited about this show as I've been in past seasons. Its just on too long and not enough dancing for me right now.

So I expected a complete train wreck....and it wasn't. I didn't think the dances were all that bad. There were even a couple that were pretty dang good. The worst of the night, easily, hands down, was Ashley and Chris. I blame the choreographer for that, they were given total crap. Now I blame the dancer because Marko and Melanie were given a total crap NappyTabs routine and they managed to transcend it. A good dancer can do that.
My favorite? Mandy Moore, the last one with Caitlyn and Mitchell. There were others that made me smile a little and made me feel happy watching them dance. I liked the waltz that wasn't a waltz. I also liked Melanie and Marko's number.
I also watched the show without listening to a single judge comment, it made the show so much more enjoyable for me. I never realized how much their screeching, over praising, or clear agendas ruin things for me till I decided to wait till I could FF past them.
Bottom 3 is hard to call, I have no idea how the viewers are voting but I can hazard a guess.
Ashley and Chris
Sasha and Alexander (I can't even remember what they did and I just watched it!)
Clarice & Jess (another that I can't remember what they did)
I doubt Nigel is breaking up the couples yet so I predict that Ashley and Chris are out of there.
I hated the all girl number and loved the all guy one.
