I wish that Derek hadn't asked about Charity's foot bandage and the judges hadn't went on about it because I want them to win or lose by their merit. I watched all the performances without the pre-performance package or the judges comments first so I had no idea she was even injured from their performance. The only difference is Andres was highlighted more in their routine. My favorite routine by them is still the one for the Cut, but this was still good. It's been said that they use too much acro in their routines but I don't think so. Their "pure dance" moments were just as fantastic. They are unlike that young ballroom acro couple who came back this year. C & A quality of movement is just a treat to watch for me, perfect combination of grace and strength. And I'm surprised none of the judges mentioned that they added ballroom steps in their routine. It was well done too.
I think Kaycee is a better dancer than Sean. She is very talented. Sean's strength is more on choreography. Their routines, except for the Duel one, are all Nappytab-lite for me. I feel like I've seen so many similar routines on the old So You Think You Can Dance. Their Duel performance was iconic, though. I was hoping to see more of that from them, not the cutesy light bulb dance or the typical dancing in the rain. I think there was a team season one who did something similar before.
The Lab are going to win this year, aren't they? They deserve it. They have been delivering clean and exciting routines consistently. Been a fan since last season.
I wonder if Michael's routine would be as impressive without the special effects. He is an amazing dancer for sure but contemporary solos often look awkward and choppy to me. Still, he is interesting to watch.
Was a big fan of Zack in SYTYCD but hated all of Ashley & Zack performances on this show. It's just a mess. He should come back as a tap dancer. He would do well.
