Season Eleven: Finale

Another season has come and gone. And since this year's winner was seemingly a foregone conclusion since the callback episode, I'm going to use this post to talk more about why So You Think You Can Dance needs to ride off into the sunset. Spoilers after the jump.

It's almost time to say goodbye: the final cut of the season.

Season Eleven, Week Seven: Top Eight Performances

It's a Michael Jackson tribute week, which is both wonderful and horrifying... wonderful because, duh, it's Michael Jackson, and horrifying because there was nothing as special about this "tribute" as Michael was to the world. Time to cut.

Season Eleven, Week Six: Top Ten Performances

 The top ten gets pared down to a top eight with the first really awful elimination of the season. Lots of things get overpraised, Nigel congratulates himself some more, and if you're taking shots every time someone says the word "Emmy" then you're freaking wasted!

Season Eleven, Week Five: Top Fourteen Performances

This week was almost universally very strong. Dancers I'd come to pretty much despise stepped it up, and it made for a great episode of television. Plus, the top ten is revealed!

In which I don't understand who is voting for Jessica.

Season Eleven, Week Three: Top Eighteen Performances

I couldn't possibly be more over the judging on this show. I'll touch more on this when I get to my thoughts on the night's final number, but the vast overpraising these people receive is absurd, to the point that I'm just assuming the judges make notes on the rehearsal and don't even watch the live performance. The discrepancy is just that big. Anyway, let's get to it.

Season Eleven, Week Two: Top Twenty Elimination

Some disasters. Some clever choreography. Some fun performances. And some bitchiness.

Season Eleven, Week One: Top Twenty Performances

Despite So You Think You Can Dance overstaying its welcome by about three seasons at this point, here we are again! Last night's first performance episode wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be; there are actually some really talented dancers doing some good choreography. And also there was crap.
