Who will be the WINNER?

Tena votes: Joshua

Twitch always does incredible solos. Tonight was no exception.

Joshua killed the Russian duel. That was off the chain! I think that performance gave him a edge over twitch.

Katee is the most consistent and amazing dancer next to Will, however I don't think people will vote for her.

Didn't really like the Fox Trot Twitch and Katee did.

Joshua's solo was really nice and I think his personality showed thru.

The final Mia Michaels routine was fantastic and the fact that they could pull that off at the end was amazing. Joshua's leaps were over everyone's head and he outshown Twitch. Katee's technique was beautiful and her lines were perfect. Courtney did not look good at all.

My pick to win is Joshua.

Scott and Vanessa vote: Katee

Twitch vs. Joshua? Joshua owned it and it was obvious.

Katee vs. Courtney? Katee owned it and it was obvious.

Katee vs. Joshua? Katee is our girl so we are going with her. She is also the most consistent dancer on the show and could do just about everything! We do like Joshua a lot and it would probably be a coin flip for us if Katee wasn't part of our team. Damn they are both so good.

Mikey votes: Katee

going home: Courtny, Twitch, Joshua
winning: Katee

Seth and Melinda vote: Joshua

We are going to say Courtney and Twitch with Katee in 2nd and Joshua in first.

Jenna votes: Joshua

Well, I have to say...I found last weeks show to be wildly more exciting than this weeks. For a season finale, it was not very spectacular. I mean, I was way more excited about "Samantha Who" than I was about the routines in this show. And to be honest, I don't think it was the dancing. I think it was the choreography.

Can we please please PLEASE have Shane Sparks back? That routine by NappyTabs was horrible. I wanted so much more out of that than we got. I also felt like it was a poor choice in music. Not because the song is bad - the song in fact is killer. However, it was recently used in Step up 2 (not a good movie but check the dancing. Seriously.) and the dancing to that song in particular was unbelieveable. So I heard the song start and I expected this high energy, raw, fast, hip hop routine and I got something that only sort of resembled raw where hits were missed and there was just a general feeling of "eh." For a finale and for that song I expected way more.

I would like to know who had the bright idea to put broadway, jive, and the russian piece in the finale? In general, I find broadway and jive less exciting than many of the other dances they have on the show. They also do not showcase the dancers as much as I would have hoped. The broadway routine was ok, but not something that I was very excited about. And jive is awful. I would have loved to see something else instead, maybe a waltz or a jazz.

I loved the Russian routine. It was great to see on the show and a great showcase for Josh. Not sure if the choreography really helped Twitch out at all or if he just wasn't quite up to par so they had to make it work for him. Or maybe I was just drawn to the big flashy jumps. Even though I loved it, I'm not sure it was the best choice for the last show. I would have LOVED to see them do hip hop together. I know it's not a stretch for versitility, but at this point in the season, we know they can dance. I want to be so excited about a routine that I jump out of my seat and I think a hip hop with the boys could have delivered.

Katee and Josh's contemp routine was amazing. There's no question that they scored in a big way by getting Wade. Wow.

Everything else for me was just ok. I definitely wanted more out of last night's show.

On an unrelated note; the costumes this week were AWFUL. Especially on the girls. What is up with the crap-tacular outfit Courtney had to wear for the hip hop? She was crazy and frumpy. And those awful things both the girls had to wear for Broadway were something out of a moth filled costume room from the community theatre in Nowheres-ville IL. Ew. I wonder if moms worldwide are starting to worrying about the scantilly clad women on the show and the producers decided to make it more family orriented. Even the spankies got longer.

As for who I think will go home, I don't know. I think Josh may win the whole thing. Well, I don't even think that. I just hope he does. Here is the order I would place them in if I got to be the single judge and the order in which I will vote (since I don't know what America is thinking...):

4th: Twitch - America loves him. Some girl wants to marry him. Crazy. But the other dancers are better....
3rd: Katee - amazing dancer. She doesn't need this show. Mia is going to hire her tomorrow.
2nd: Courtney - wow. So much improvement and so much to offer.
1st: Josh - DAMN. He isn't trained?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I think one of the judges even called him an "everything dancer."

So who got tickets to the show? i'm thinking about it....

Todd and Ronni vote: Katee

We are going for Katee to win.

Tena votes: Mark and Chelsie



Hot Mess of the night – Tabby's and Nappy's choreography. Can we actually get someone who knows how to choreograph hip hop? I absolutely positively hated it.

Just plain Hot – Joshua and Katee's contemporary piece. The lifts were amazing. Joshua was so strong and there for Katee. Katee is completely fearless and attacks everything she does.

Solos – Courtney always does a great job. Twitch's solo was super fun and his ticks are stellar.

Please go home Mark and Chelsea! If this boy is in the top four or God forbid..... wins this show, I don't think I can stand to watch this show ever again.

Scott and Vanessa vote: Twitch and Chelsie

WOOOOAH! That was a ROCKIN night! Crazy sick routine after crazy sick routine... ok, there were some not so amazing ones... but for the most part, we loved it.

We are voting for Twitch and Chelsie. We are really torn about it this week. We are choosing Chelsie because we are down in the points a bit and we need to vote for our girl Courtney: all or nothing! But we think it's almost a coin flip between Courtney and Chelsie. At the same time, we think it's almost a coin flip for Twitch and Mark too. Mark was better last night, but Twitch was better for the last two weeks. Ultimately we went with Twitch because we think America may like Mark more (although that dumb shirt thing in his solo may make us sorry for going this way).

Highlights: Joshua and Katee's sick paso doble routine and Mark and Courtney's sick jazz piece! Watching them back to back made me jump out of my chair!

By the way: Cat was so hilariously awesome when she put in that grill!

Mikey votes: Twitch and Courtney

[notes coming...]

Seth and Melinda vote: Mark and Courtney

We are going to sadly say Mark and Courtney.

Jenna votes: Twitch and Katee

I have no idea who is going home. Honestly.

Let's say Twitch and Katee.

Wow, the worst part about last night was Cat's dress. The dancing was insane. I think may favorite routine of the night was the Jazz Routine from Mark and Courtney. She has really come a long way from week 1 and looked amazing in both routines last night AND in the numbers from last week.

I also really enjoyed Katee and Josh. He's pretty darned incredible and I would be very happy if he won the whole thing. His lines are so good!

Twitch was the weakest link this week and I felt that it was in part due to some choreography and costume issues. That hip hop routine should have been off the hook - and it wasn't. It was good, there is no question, but it did not make me want to jump off the sofa in excitement like the jazz routine and the paso doble did. Seriously, at like 2am I was jumping off the sofa and cheering. I wanted the hip hop to do that and it didn't. I felt like the choreography was good but it could have been so much more and I couldn't see anything in those costumes. I get the whole baggy hip hop thing, but there were too many layers and they didn't move with the bodies of the dancers, so I couldn't tell what they were doing.

Anyway, I have NO CLUE which girl will go home. They were all outstanding. I think I only voted for Katee because they may vote for the other girls instead. It was like pulling a name out of a hat...

THAT was the show I was waiting for all season.

Todd and Ronni vote: Twitch and Courtney

Sigh. We're going to go with the other two people who were in the bottom last week because "America" wants them gone: Twitch and Courtney

Twitch's Mambo was not good and they hip hop routine didn't have enough dancing to make him shine. We like Courtney, but she just keeps ending up in the bottom so we think she'll be there again.

We would actually like to see Mark and Chelsie gone. Will is a much better dancer than Mark. We were hoping Mark would get injured and Will would be back in, but alas... Chelsie has never had to dance for her life. She doesn't do anything better than Susie did. Just solo latin dancing.
