SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE – Top 18 Review

What an amazing night! Almost every couple did pretty good. I don’t know who to eliminate… Tomorrow is going to be a hard night…

Quick thoughts:

  • My favorite: Danny & Anya.
  • My least favorite: Lauren & Neil
  • RECAP:

    LAUREN GOTTLEIB & NEIL HASKELLHip Hop

    Choreography: Dave Scott
    Music: “The Way I Are” by Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.Q.E. get it on Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E. - Shock Value - The Way I Are
    Thoughts:I didn’t really think Lauren was that good, no flavor for me. Neil was actually better than her. The outfit did not say hip hop at all which didn’t help. Rating: 3/5
