SYTYCD 12 Top 6 – Jaja Vankova & Alex – Contemp – VIDEO

Jaja Vankova and Alex- Contemp by Tassandra- Youth by Daughter – Jaja is playing someone with Alzheimers who fades in and out. This could be the routine that sends Jaja back into contender territory. I was distracted by the dance the whole number and didn’t type. I thought it was brilliant. This is my favorite number of the season. For anyone whose had a family member dealing with dementia or Alzheimers, I thought Jaja’s smiles, and her scared faces, and her everything was EVERYTHING. Alex killed it too. That was SO GOOD. The dancing was incredible. Jaja has come so far. That routine was made better because Jaja was in it. Standing O from the judges. Paula says Jaja has become the ultimate dancer, and praises Tassandra for the routine. Jason was emotionally invested, and teared up a bit. He says he expects her to wow him every week. They talk about The Notebook a bit. Nigel says Jaja found the reality in her performance, of the fading in and out. To think, this girl was cut last season. Insane. She’s come so incredibly far.
