SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE – Top 4 Review

So You Think You Can Dance Top 4
Kelsey McNeal/FOX © 2007 Fox Broadcasting Co.

The night is finally here. The top 4 performed for the last time on SO THINK YOU CAN DANCE and it was memorable. All of them surpassed themselves and gave us one of the best shows of the season. I cannot wait for tomorrow night.

My ranking of the top 4:

1. Sabra (no surprises there)
2. Danny & Neil (I think I like them both equally at this point)
3. Lacey

Moving on to the review:

SABRA JOHNSON & NEIL HASKELLHip Hop

Choreography: Shane Sparks
Music: “Whine Up” by Kat DeLuna get it on Kat DeLuna - 9 Lives - Whine Up
Thoughts: That was probably my favorite hip hop routine of the season. I don’t know why the judges didn’t like it, I thought it was sick, I was ready to get up and dance. Neil and Sabra looked good together. Rating: 5/5

NEIL HASKELL – So apparently I like Neil now. He totally grew on me, and I find myself looking forward to watch him perform. I liked his solo and I just think he has grown so much.

Neil Solo Finals

LACEY SCHWIMMER & SABRA JOHNSONJazz

Choreography: Wade Robson
Music: “Koyal (Songbird)” by Nitin Sawhney get it on Nitin Sawhney - Philtre - Koyal (Songbird)
Thoughts: How emotional was that? Or is it just me? I didn’t agree with the judges because I think at this point it’s not about showing what they can do anymore because we already know what they can do. I think it’s about performance, and they both performed this amazingly well, I lost myself into the dance. Plus we all know I love everything Wade does. Rating: 4/5

Lacey and Sabra Finals

DANNY TIDWELL – The interview with Cat made me teary, wow I am so emotional right now. Holy crap that solo was amazing!!!! I LOVED it!!! And the song, so beautiful. Oh wait… I think Danny just won me over. How the heck did he do all those jumps and turns? There are no words, it was so powerful. Go Danny!
Music: “We Are The Champions” by Gavin DeGraw get it on Gavin DeGraw - Killer Queen: A Tribute to Queen - EP - We Are the Champions

Music: “Are You The One?” by The Presets get it on The Presets - Beams - Are You the One?
Thoughts: That was so cool! Mia Michaels did it again. I loved the costumes, and they had the characters down. By the way, did Neil miss his jump over Danny we saw in the video? Rating: 5/5

LACEY SCHWIMMER & NEIL HASKELLLindy Hop

Choreography: Nick Williams
Music: “Bill’s Bounce” by The Big Elliot Swing Orchestra
Thoughts: Definitely not my favorite of the night, but fun nonetheless. Those crazy lifts, were cool though. I think the only thing negative I would have to say is that I don’t feel there is as much chemistry between Neil and Lacey as there is between Neil and Sabra. Rating: 3/5
