I use to dance when I was younger and I just adore the artisticness of the show. It is definitely my favorite reality TV show. I went to the tour last year and am going to this years as well. This season had some of the best routines but the dancers weren't the best. This season became more of a popularity contest rather than it focusing on the dancing. If you go back and watch past seasons, everything is about lines, form, and the dancing. Don't get me wrong, this season was great but the dance rules have sort of slacked. You know? Mark was my favorite dancer this season as he was very versatile and unique. Will and Katie, by far, were the best technical dancers. Joshua was the best all around so I am glad he won. Twitch was mostly personality and just hip hop/pop. He did not do well in other styles, like lyrical, foxtrot, quickstep, and all the more formal dances where technicality was required. My favorite perfromances this year were Katie and Joshua's Bollywood, Mark and Chelsea's hip hop to Bleeding Love, Mark and Courtney's Jazz to The Garden, and Katie and Will's pas de deux. I can't wait to see those dances live. I think the best season so far has been the one with Benji, Travis and Heidi. They were all extremely good dancers. Last season was also really good. Sabra, Danny, Neil and Lacey were also great dancers. My favorite performances last season were Sabra and Pasha's quickstep, Sabra and Neil's table dance, Hok and Jaimie's hummingbird dance, and Neil and Danny's dueling princes.
I only have 18 more days until I see this years tour! Yay!
