So You Think You Can Dance Rundown: The Top 10

Last night the top 10 dancers had a lot to handle on So You Think You Can Dance. Not only did everyone have to perform with new partners, but there were group dances from the top five girls and top five guys as well as solos all around. There were highs and lows as the season gets down into single digits tonight!

There was a good amount of multicultural dance tonight as well as a moment to see each dancer showcase his or her signature style, which is always nice. Who do you think are heading home?

To read more of what I thought of the dances and for photos from the performances just

.

The top five girls: The ladies took on Bollywood last night and put on a pretty impressive show. Considering how different they all come across in their couples dances, the women did a great job keeping in sync and impressing the judges. Have we mentioned how much we love the fact that they incorporated different types of dance from around the world this season? No wonder the judges were all so excited to see this routine.

Kayla and Evan's Ballroom: They did a nice job compensating for her height and his lackthereof, which really didn't end up having an effect on things. The routine was sweet, but Kayla outshone Evan. There was no wow factor between them, though they kept everything together technique-wise.

Janette and Ade's Hip Hop: In my opinion, these two actually worked surprisingly well together. Ade stole the show a bit, but Janette was able to keep up pretty well which is impressive. Nigel complemented them by sporting hair picks of his own . . . while Mary Murphy started up her enthusiasm for the night.

Jeanine and Jason's Contemporary: LOVE seeing Season Two's Travis Wall back as a choreographer for the show for the first time, and he did an amazing job. Jason and Jeanine told a great story with their dance, looking fantastic. It was one of the most emotion-evoking dances I've seen perhaps this season. Gorgeous.

Randi and Kupono's Paso Doble: Randi's brown hair made her almost unrecognizable in this emotionally intense dance. The duo did their best to raise the heat in their red and black, but I wasn't loving the whole thing. It seemed a bit forced and lacking chemistry. Unfortunately, the judges seemed to agree.

Melissa and Brandon's Broadway: The new duo did a number from Hair and had to get up close and personal right off the bat. These two have both been super strong dancers the whole time, so I was looking forward to seeing what they could do together on stage. It was a little humorous watching them play hippies, but ultimately pretty great.

The top five guys: The dudes took on African dance for their group number. Let's just say there were obvious standouts and some slightly weaker links (Evan). It was clearly a very difficult number, and all the men deserve credit for pulling it off and looking great doing it.

The Solos: Highlights for me included Ade, Jeanine, Janette, and Jason.

Favorites: Hands down, I loved Jeanine and Jason's contemporary — so beautiful. Melissa and Brandon's Broadway was trippy and cute. The girls were also all-stars in their Bollywood routine.

In Trouble: I sadly think we might be saying goodbye to Evan and Kayla tomorrow. Otherwise, wouldn't be surprised to see Kupono or Randi go. What do you think?

I had completely written Jason off, but he and Jeanine were awesome. I have loved Randi from the beginning, but she and Kupono were insanely bad last night and I'm betting they are leaving.

Agreed Evan and Randi...def. Randi over Kayla--Kayla was much better in her solo and partnered dance. Randi was terrible in both. I like her, but she fell short. Kayla is a great dancer--but for some reason people don't connect with her. I loved Debbie Allen as well tarabara..I think one of the best judges of the season!!! Travis' dance was amazing!

Jeanine and Janette are definitely my top two girls! I think Evan is (sadly) the weakest guy there, between his iffy technical know-how and his height. It sucks because he's adorable! Randi is also at the bottom of my list; I think Kayla is far more talented.

I think Evan and Randi should go tonight. They haven't really been impressing me. I think Kayla is a great dancer and deserves to stay. Also loved Jeanine and Jason's routine. Surprisingly yesterday all their partnerships were pretty great and almost worked well for most of them.

I love Ade more after last night's African dance. I loved the Hair sequence and Travis' piece was beautiful. I watched it twice. I love the fact that Travis came back and he is showcasing his talent. I also liked the Bollywood and hip hop routines. I was also pleased by Mary's silent screaming. She needs to do it more often. I am bored with Randi and Kupono. I don't remember their solos and their paso was awful. I would not be surprised though if Randi and Evan got sent home.

I absolutely love Randi. Buzz, I'm surprised that you think Kayla will go, she seems like such a front runner. I agree the girls are much more impressive than the guys.

I loved Travis' routine! Standouts for me last night were Ade, Brandon and Jason from the guys, and Janette and Jeanine from the girls. I still don't understand all the Evan love. Kupono's solo was better than Evan's, but that paso doble was just horrendous. I won't be sad to see either go home. And please, get rid of Randi. She's awful. I don't know if it's because she's married and afraid to show any sensuality, but she just can't seem to get the chemistry right with her partners. Also, Debbie Allen needs to be a judge more, honey child.

At the beginning of the show last night I found myself thinking that the season started off really strongly, but that not much had impressed me since. However, I really loved Jeanine and Jason's piece last night. That was definitely my favorite piece of the night and one of my favorites of the season. I enjoyed Melissa and Brandon's piece as well, but that may just be because I like Hair! I, too was more impressed with the girls' group number than with the guys'.

I think Travis' piece was just beautiful. I hadn't been a huge fan of Jeanine's, but she and Jason danced it perfectly. Definitely the best of the season for me followed closely by Brandon and Janette's dances from the week before. I think Evan and Randi are in trouble.
