SYTYCD Season 12 Top 10 Results and Performance – Live Blog & Videos
Edson and Jamie – Contemporary with Travis Wall – Your Day Will Come by Son Lux – Edson gets a Travis routine. That’s how you make a comeback. The stage is almost too dark. I can’t really see his face that well. Or Jamie’s for that matter. It’s hard to see if he’s connected emotionally the whole dance. There are some moments where he doesn’t look invested, and others where he does. I can’t tell if the lighting choice helps or hurts him. As far as a dancer, he’s just doing a lot of lifting, so it shows off his strength I suppose. Not my favorite Travis routine. Standing O from the judges. Maybe it played better live. Nigel thought it was a powerful routine, and thinks this was Edson’s best so far on the show. Paula says this was one of her favorite Travis routines ever. She calls this a game changer for Edson. She loved his transitions, and the lifts. I loved the lifts too, to be fair. He was really strong in this. She says this was one of the most magical numbers. Jason says Paula just wrote a song. LOL. He says that it was definitely his breakout performance. He thinks it’ll be remembered for a long time. RESULTS! Edson is in the bottom two. That means both Gaby and Jim are safe. My gut instinct says Edson stays over Derek.
Edson’s Solo – I Wanna Love You from Empire – Edson used to play a lot of sports, and even used to be a cheerleader till he got teased for doing it. He auditioned for the kids he teaches. My favorite contemporary solo. He actually tried to do something different, showing his personality, and putting on this sexy/cool thing. I think Derek and Hailee both missed their opportunities, but Edson took full advantage of it. Good job.
