Top Fourteen Elimination Performances

Top Fourteen Group Performance (Choreographed by Nakul Dev Mahajan)

As far as Bollywood routines go, this one was pretty tame. It was missing a lot of the thrill and excitement usually present in the couples Bollywood dances. The energy was great though, and no one stood out as being really good or really bad. That's a feat in and of itself considering how bad some of the guys were in their group performance last night. But even in the simple movement of walking forward, the girls were better than the guys.

The Bottom Three Couples: Ashley and Chris, Jordan and Tadd, Ryan and Ricky

Ugh, this is such a terrible group to be in danger of leaving the show. Sasha and Alexander absolutely deserved to be in the bottom over Ryan and Ricky; Jordan and Tadd were very good, but I can understand why that routine wouldn't have grabbed an audience. But Ryan and Ricky? I just don't get it. The only thing I can think of is that Ryan's story of being discovered by Mia Michaels and already having a great career in television put off voters, which is ridiculous but then again so is America.

Having said that, I hated all the solos. Tadd's was the only enjoyable one, because it was at least amusing... but it was stupid. But it was a foregone conclusion that Ashley and Chris would be eliminated, so there was no surprise there. Luckily for them, they had one of the best performances so far with their Broadway routine two weeks ago; it will likely end up being one of the best of entire season.

The Guest Dancers: Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet

This group is unbelievable; amazing choreography and dancers. This is what the dancers on this show should be aspiring to. But that's honestly one of the ugliest pieces of music I've ever heard.
