SYTYCD: Season 11
Ranking the Routines: #36 - #33

#36: "I've Got The World On A String" - Ricky & Valerie Spencer Liff Broadway


This routine was perfect for Valerie and Ricky. Adorable and cute. It's doesn't do anything new or mindblowing it just celebrates their partnership and does so in a way that showcases them as dancers and just lovable personalities.

#35: "Happy" - Emilio & Bridget Anya & Pasha Jive


I know my liking this routine after all my complaints about the joke ballroom has become on the show is the height of hypocrisy, but I can't help it. It's just a feel good routine and both dancers performed the hell out of it. This is actually my favourute single performance from Bridget an she kills it. Every inch the pin up and selling every movement with gusto. And then my bb Emilio is just so darn adorable. Do I wish their was more jive, of course, but for what it was it was amazing.

#34: "Oh Darling" - Ricky & Valerie Travis Wall Contemporary


I know "growth" has become nothing more than a cliche on the show, but if you compare the original performance of this to the redux on finale night it is like two different routines, everything is just that much bigger and better danced. And the backbend 2nd time round is just something else. Although saying all that I am just basing this list off of the original performances and while on the finale it took my breath away there was something missing first time. Still gorgeous, but it just didn't feel as finished, which is why it lands here. The finale version would be a lot lot higher but alas oh well.

#33: "Senile" - Serge & Carly Luther Brown Hip-hop


Sshhhh. No one tell Jimmy. Yeah never been the biggest fan of the choreography here and I'm still bitter that this was the choreography Serge got for hip-hop. Whateva whateva. Carly killed it though and I'm glad it got a reprisal.

How am I supposed to comment on this when all the routines in this set could potentionally be in my top 5 routines of the season? laughing.gif
Though, I guess I shouldn't complain since you could have easily ranked them lower as you pointed out so it's fine. happy.gif

Regarding "EATR" I can see what you mean about the section without music as I felt that way the first time I watched it (this part was more drawn out in the reprise and matched with the lightning effect) but I think it has a certain charm on its own since it felt more raw and uncontrolled that way.

Tyce is probably my favorite Contemporary choreographer out of those who regularly appear on Sytycd at this point though that's more because of the fact that Travis, Mandy and Stacey's work rarely elicits more than a yawn from me nowadays. yawn.gif


Btw SYTYCD Vietnam's ongoing season has a cute (?) Ballroom guy in the top 20 so I'm interested to hear what you think about him. shifty.gif

Showcase Solo (his name is Đức Tiến):

Piano Man and NMQP are probably my top 2(ish) routines of the season.
I disagree on Piano Man being dated. I mean, it is I guess, but tap is like broadway. It has such a rich heritage and I don't think it needs to be made contemporary. I mean, maybe not to the extent of broadway, I still enjoy tap routines like "Sing", but even routines like "When I Was Your Man" still have that vintage-y feel, even if the song is modern. I'm not even sure what point I'm trying to make here, I just love Piano Man. And I love Billy Joel. No shame.

I'd have NMQP a bit higher than that! But overall I don't disagree. Glad to know I'm not the only one who doesn't think E,ATR is all that. giggle.gif

Top updated (all the posts have been moved a page back). Will reply to comments later.

Btw all these rankings might have to change because I just looked at my rankings for the rest of the routines and theres so many doubles so I'll have to figure out what routines are missing pinch.gif
