    Re: 9/5 Show Discussion Thread *Spoilers*

    This was the first week since I think the beginning I've been able to watch the show, and I'll say this:

    Eliana and Tiffany right choice.

    Cheon right choice.

    Cyrus - especially over Cole - WRONG choice IMHO. It isn't because he's bad (Cyrus does have dancing talent) it's just that he's one note and when you see the two up against each other - no contest.

    It's pretty clear though that I think this year it was smart to have a best boy and girl winner because individually I think they'd had a woman for the third time in four seasons. Especially now with Cole gone.

    If they announce the winner on Tuesday, then the winner has already been chosen by the voters based on last night's performances; and Tuesday's performances will be a celebration of dance, not a competition.

    However the ending presents itself, I just want to see Chenon and Eliana dance together before they close the curtain.

    I am familiar with dubstep music, so I was annoyed that they made it sound like a dance.

    I am thrilled that Eliana and Chehon are in the top four. I really want them to win it. Tiffany is a nice dancer, but I keep forgetting about her. I just don't find her memorable at all.

    Chehon has really grown on me. I agree with the comments about the judges being critical of the good male dancers and then gushing all over Cyrus without giving an actual critique of his abilities. He really has gotten softball routines. While I like how enthusiastic he is, it frustrates me that he just isn't good. We have seen hip-hop dancers who have been outstanding (Hok), so I am annoyed that he has gotten to the top four even though he seems like a great guy.

    I would like to see them eliminate ballroom. I love hip hop and the alternative dances. Ballroom is the odd duck in this mix.

He seems like a nice guy, but I watch a show called "So You Think You Can Dance" to watch dancing - not smiling.

    When they showed the closing clips of Cole's journey, I could NOT believe that he's gone and Cyrus is still there. :-(
    Travesty is indeed the word for it. Cole should have been the winner for the men with Chelon or Will in 2nd place. What I noticed was that they gave Cyrius whatever dance form that was that matches his skills, but all really good ones got dances that were way out of their personal styles. It was an unfair playing field and my admiration for this show has hit bottom.

    My only compliment is that I have been surprised twice now by how much Christina Applegate knows about dance. She has been outstanding among the celebrity guest judges.

    I also wanted to say one thing - Melanie is still awesome. My favorite dance last night was the one with Cole and Melanie dancing and she was able to do those lifts and look just as elegant as he did.

    It also speaks volumes for Cole - not many men would allow a woman to lift them.

    She has been on before( another season) I think she is one of the best guest judges they have. She is better than some of the regulars.

    Tuesday is the final competition show, and then the following Tuesday is the season finale. So voting will be based on this Tuesday's show. We may get Chehon & Eliana dancing ballet!
