'So You Think You Can Dance' Results December 9: Legacy and Mollee Eliminated

by Sharon Knolle, posted Dec 10th 2009 2:15AM
According to Adam Shankman, we may already have a winner on 'So You Think You Can Dance': Kathryn McCormick, whose cha cha with partner Ryan Di Lello he called "vibrant and electric," exclaiming, "that may have been the performance of the season."

Shankman went on to compare Kathryn to last season's winner, Jeanine Mason: "Last night for Kathryn was like, a star is born. I said to myself, 'Oh my God, she could be this year's Jeanine.' I didn't see Jeanine happen until the finale. Last night, that cha cha clinched you, that was it."

Judging by Ryan's double-take and the gasps from the audience, the other biggest surprise of the evening was that he was staying and Legacy Perez, the b-boy dancer from Miami with a fondness for spinning on his head, was leaving. Also leaving: Mollee Gray, who had danced for her life several times throughout the competition, but couldn't help crying as she learned that she had not made it to the finale.

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 8 Revealed

Quest
(S06E20)
I go into these elimination shows expecting a lot of pad and filler. But when it's a dance show, I want to see dancing; which is why I'm always a little perplexed when musical guests who don't dance show up. This week's musical guest was Snoop Dogg, and I really enjoyed it. And yes, I know that Snoop does little more than bounce and swagger.

It was that either he or the producers were smart about how to put together his stage show. Hip-hop videos are known for dancing, so why not bring that dancing to the live show? Joining Snoop on stage was Quest, a former winner of America's Best Dance Crew, as well as the dance home for three former SYTYCD contestants: Ryan, Dominic and Hok.

What about the results, though? I was surprised that even though we've switched to voting for individual dancers, it was still two couples from last night's performance show that wound up in the bottom.

Ellenore Scott(S06E19) What an amazing and jam-packed night of dance. With ten couple dances and ten solos, it was wall-to-wall performances. Amazingly, almost every single one of the performances was excellent.

Honestly, I am so impressed with this entire Top 10, I can't say enough good things about them. Sonya Tayeh finally blew me away as a choreographer. Working with Ellenore is a match made in heaven for both of them, really.

We've got a lot to cover, so why are you still here? Jump into the article and get to reading about all of it already!

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 12 Revealed

Mollee Gray(S06E16) If things keep going the way they've been going, I'm going to start thinking America's really learning something about dance after all these shows they've been watching the past several years. I understood and agreed with every single one of America's choices, which is more than I can say for Nigel and the judges.

We did get to see Nakul Dev Majahan, joined on stage by MDN Bollywood Productions, in a Bollywood routine he choreographed. While I loved the earlier Bollywood piece we got this season, this one didn't grab me quite as strongly. A lot of that probably has to do with how foreign it still is to our Western senses; we don't really understand what we're seeing or why we're seeing it all the time.

Still, I guess I'm glad it's part of the show, as it continues to showcase the diversity in dance around the world. I even applaud their ill-fated attempt to try Russian folk. I say keep trying SYTYCD, just be very wary of what you put on these dancers.

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 18 Perform

(S06E12) Yet again, because of the ongoing World Series on FOX, there was no elimination this week, which means we barely had time to process the dancing before two contestants were being eliminated. Luckily for me, it became clear pretty quickly which two performances were the weakest of the night.

There were two that were absolutely amazing as well, one that may go down as one of the top SYTYCD dances of all time. But the most important question of the night was: Did the judges agree with me as to who should have gone home?

Thankfully, by next week all these distractions will be sorted out and you and I will be able to vote for ourselves who we want to keep around.

Review: So You Think You Can Dance - Top 20 Revealed

So You Think You Can Dance(S06E09) Tonight, we started with 38 dancers, and by the end of the hour, the Top 20 stood revealed. I'm never quite sure how to take these episodes; American Idol always has one, as well. For the most part, it's just contestants walking in front of the judges and hearing "Yes" or "No." For those of us who've been watching since the beginning and finding our early favorites, it can be a little tense and exciting.

But then I think about someone who's never watched the show, and who's maybe tuning in for the first time tonight. What a boring hour of television they would be in for. You barely get any snippets from the good dancers who make it through. Mostly it's just a parade of faces you don't know and lots of crying.

But before we get to the tears, we need to get excited. For the first time, and to give everyone a more even playing field going into the first performance show, this Monday at 8pm ET, FOX offers a special non-elimination episode where the Top 20 get to show us their stuff.
