So You Think You Can Dance Is Down to Eight!

Fresh off their four Primetime Emmy Nominations — yay — it was elimination night on So You Think You Can Dance. We went from 10 to eight, which means it was the first time that the judges didn't get the final say. It's all up to us from now on, so lets take a look at who we said goodbye to last night.

It was a love fest on the stage, especially with Nigel MIA, but there were some surprises with who was in the bottom two for guys and girls. To read more about the episode and thoughts on who went home just


Randi's solo was the same old same old from her. She's adorable for sure, but it was her time to go. Mary Murphy gave her a backhanded compliment by saying she's so great but had no standout moments all season. Melissa's solo wasn't my favorite either —I think she's beautiful and didn't think she would be in the bottom two, but need to see some more solo excitement. It was sad to see sweet Randi go, but when we're this far along, every elimination is sad.

As for the guys, I still wasn't loving Kupono's solo for the second time. Ade flat out didn't belong in the bottom two, to me. His solo was amazing again and clearly had the crowd going wild. Hopefully seeing him on the verge of elimination will motivate his fans to pick up the phone next week. I know I'll be there for him! Kupono is handsome, but there's still some serious eye candy in the top four guys.

Some other thoughts:

  • Did you like getting to look back on the Emmy-nominated performances?
  • Are the teases for season six getting you excited?
  • Congrats to Nigel on his brand new degree, but I still missed him!
  • I still think Evan's days are numbered, but now I'm not so sure about the girls. Who do you think should be worried about next week?

Don't forget to enter my contest to win a trip to the finale!
