So You Think You Can Dance – Top 16 Results – Recap

Chelsea Traille and Chris Jarosz are Eliminated

Comfort and Thayne become dance partners, as Chelsea and Chris are sent packing tonight. Chris clearly had the weakest solo dance of the three, just as he did last week, when Marquis was (unfairly! He danced his ass off!) sent home. Justice is served. I have to say, I enjoyed Thayne’s solo tonight. And, Matt did more than enough to prove that he deserves to stay, indeed, Nigel called his solo “brilliant” and apologized for being so hard on him.

Chelsea’s solo was better than Comfort’s but as yet another contemporary dancer, Chelsea became expendable. Plus, she really botched her routine this week. No matter. Comfort should really have her suitcase packed. Her time is coming, sooner rather than later, unless Nigel thinks it’s time for a surprise boot, or another dancer really screws up.

Although Kourtney has been a bit of a disappointment to Nigel, I hope she hangs on for at least a few more weeks. Save Kourtney! And Matt too, while yer at it. Their routine this week was unappreciated by the voters, in my opinion. Really, Will and Jessica, danced a shaky routine that was full of mistakes. They should have been Bottom 3 instead.

Mia Michaels choreographed tonight’s group dance. She really does love her some Tim Burton, doesn’t she? These edgy, creative group routines are the highlight of the results show – Song: “The Dance” by Charlotte Martin – VIDEO
