    I'm a huge fan of this show. Was wondering if any other Real Jock members fans of the show. I guess I love the show because of the versatility (no pun intended) lol. I think my favorites have left the show (don't want to say who because I might be spoiling it for people who have been behind).

    I have to say the stand out choreographers this season have been the newbies: Travis Wall, Stacy Tookey, and Sonya Tayeh (ok so she's been on since last season but still new)

    The guys on the show have been nothing but spectacular.

    Definitely has the bar raised. What's funny is the next season starts this September.

    I'm hoping to audition next season though. Just have to be prepared because last time I auditioned I did not know what I was getting into.

    Well hope there is one or two fans of the show out there that will reply to his random post.

    HOT TAMALE TRAIN lol.

    I enjoy the show alot, and yes that must be one hell of a cattle call..Try not to be too technical that it takes away from your dance...Go For It..icon_exclaim.gif

    GUILTY!

    I've loved this show from the beginning ...

    EXCEPT for last season: I thought the producers missed the boat big time - in dancer selection and choreography. (Apparently, I am in the wee minority.)

    That said, this current season is technically the best ever. The most all around talent in one Top-20. And, finally, the choreography is back too. Ya know, you can have great dancers and so-so or bad choreography and its end result is awful...but great choreography will make so-so dancers look better!

    This season does not have "stand-outs" per se. But, technically, Brandon is superior to everyone no matter the style of dance. Kayla (blonde girl) dances effortless and literally floats across the stage. Sadly, I don't think Ade ever had an opportunity to shine because he has serious talent. Melanie (ballerina) brought something new and fresh plus the choreography afforded to her shined a great light on her. Jeanine is a consistent talent: nails the routines everytime but is not a stand out personality. Evan, dear sweet Evan: completely fun to watch, easy to love, emmense charisma and a style (broadway which is VERY hard) he makes look so easy.

    Who I think should win? Brandon
    Who I think will win? Evan
    Who do the producers want to win? Any female (it is true)
    Best Routine: Brandon & Janette: Latin Dance Routine or Melanie & Ade: Breast Cancer Routine
    Best Choreographer: Mia Michaels, Tyce Diorio or Wayne Robson

    Yeah, I like the show. >LOL< icon_lol.gif

    Guilty as charged. Love the show, really more so than American Idol and Project Runway and Top Chef. I think Brandon is going to win unless Evan gets the sympathy vote. I was a bit crushed when Jason and Kapuno were voted off, but I do like the fact that this year they brought back some of last year's greats: Travis and his cousin, Twitch and Katie, Mark and Chelsea, Will, Joshua... This really has been a great season. And I have a massive crush on Tyce.

    I too love watching the show. The last season did not hook me though.

    Brandon was my favourite from last season..icon_smile.gif

    SPOILERS BELOW:




    Alright, I'm a huge SYTYCD fan. I might have gone to the tour and I might watch each dance a couple times on DVR.

    Janette getting eliminated was stupid and a huge shock. She isn't classically trained and never missed a routine...and was obviously one of my favorites. BEAUTIFUL dancer.

    Evan making top 4 topped that in stupidity for the season. Not that I am in love with Ade, but Evan's cutesy broadway gets old fast and he doesn't have the depth of the other guys. No way he should have made top 4.

    I think Brandon is my favorite to win at this point. He's just a powerhouse of talent. I hope he lets loose a bit and dances with some more emotion (outside of his solo on Wed. That was just wow). Downside of Evan being in final 4 is that Brandon has to dance down in the number with him next week. Just think how amazing two very strong dancers like Ade and Brandon would have been in a routine.

    Kayla and Jeanine were both good? I like Jeanine over Kayla, but they didn't make a huge impression on me. Obviously amazing dancers, but I don't think they are up to snuff. On the other hand, Kayla did keep the trainwreck that is Kupono in the competition for awhile.

    Keep in mind, I understand that I am a dork with no life and no background in dance at all. Just my thoughts on one of my fav shows.

    Can't wait until next season. They definitely held some people back from this season's auditions for next season. Wahoo.

    I thought i was the only one. Also started taking up jazz because of US SYTCD Season 2 finalist Travis Wall. Made it look effortless all the time.

    Jason Glover... man does he have some sex appeal or what?! No cookie-cutter good looks but there is something about this guy that's very appealing.

    I've loved this show since Season #1, and so much more fun to watch than "American Idol" -- though I enjoy that as well.

    I'm pulling for Evan in the finale. I think he definitely brings the most personality to his dancing, and he seems like he's an underdog.
