One Steamy Dance Leads to a Judges' Kissing Frenzy on 'SYTYCD' (VIDEO)

'So You Think You Can Dance'It was another night of superb dancing as the Top 16 took to the stage on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX). But as Cat Deeley noted, there was also a theme on the night: A battle of the sexes, of sort.

That battle got a little steamy after a Nappytabs routine featuring Melanie Moore and Marko Germar. The story of the dance was that Marko was stood up at the altar on his wedding day. As his best friend Melanie tries to console him, he realizes she's the one he truly loves. More dramatically, he sealed that realization with a kiss.

That inspired a veritable kissapalooza on the judging panel as first Nigel Lythgoe kissed Mary Murphy, then guest judge Kristin Chenoweth laid one on Lil C, and finally Nigel came across the dais to kiss Lil C as well. It was all Deeley could do to keep control of the proceedings.

As for the dance, it was a definite highlight in an evening of stand-out performances. Clarice Ordaz and Jess Leprotto stole Chenoweth's heart with their Foxtrot, while Jordan Casanova and Tadd Gadduang wrapped the night with a naughty hip-hop number.

The only misfire for us, and the judges, was Sonya Tayeh's jazz routine for Ashley Rich and Chris Koehl. She needed them to get much deeper into her half-skeleton/zombie characters than either of them seemed able to, leaving the routine a little flat.

What was your favorite performance? Who do you think is in danger of going home?

Can someone please shut that Mary person up?????? I can't stand her and never watch the show for that reason.

I'm missing something and I can't quite figure out what it is. Ryan Ramirez is a beautiful young woman and I was definitely rooting for her to make it on the show especially after she'd come so close last year and didn't quite make it. But I just don't see where her performances have been as good as the two girls who had gotten cut from the show last week. I think they out performed her in their couples dances and I think they out performed her in their Dance For Their Lives. But like I said, maybe I'm missing something.
So far I have to say my favorite is Melanie Moore. She reminds me of Lauren Froderman in the way she just kills it every time they give her a number to do. I think she's going to win this year. I know I'll be voting for her every week.
Good luck Melanie.

What you don't mention Sasha and Alexander who moved the judges and the audience to tears again?
