SYTYCD: Season 11
Ranking the Routines: Top 6 Perform

Group Routine Thoughts:

Top 6: Nick DeMoura Hip-hop


Quite possibly one of the weakest group routines ever performed on SYTYCD. Why they looked at this group and thought a hip-hop would be the best routine for them will forever perplex. I mean we know they film these multiple times to get it looking as good as possible and there are stull sync issues. I actually like the choreographer after the frisbees disappeared but everything needed to be about 5 times sharper

#09: Jacque & Zack Jean-Marc Generuex Foxtrot "Anything Goes"


Aside from a surprisingly good top line in hold this routine completely lacked any technique reminiscent of Foxtrot. Like Jacque walked her way through this and looked very weird from the waist down throughout. I will say this is the first time I've garnered any sort of performance from the two of them together but I think they might just have cranked up the performance to try and cover the obvious flaws.

#08: Valarie & (tWitch) Willdabeast Hip-hop "Yeah"


This routine. I totally get the whole wedding video craze he was going for. And it kinda worked I think. Well tWitch's part worked. I still haven't decided if I liked Valerie in this, well no. I like her in some of this, but there are moments in this (like Zack in his hip-hop) that look so awkward I can barely bring myself to watch. But at it's core it's an entertaining number and regardless of how well Valerie actually dances, her routines are always entertaining which is a massive plus

#07: Jessica & Casey Doriana Sanchez Disco "Dim All The Lights"


So this was probably the best disco since Season 7. Not necessarily an achievement in itself but for the dancers involved they totally nailed the style and the ease of movement and most surprisingly the funk needed to really pull off this slightly slower routine. So yeah a great effort and one of my favourite pieces of choreography from Doriana came together to create the 2nd biggest "good" surprise of the night

#06: Casey & (Makenzie) Stacey Tookey Contemporary "Over You"


Casey admittedly went out on one of his best weeks (that doesn't change the fact that he should have went out on his single best routine but whateva), watching this without thinking of the pointless emotional weight surrounding it really creates a beautiful routine with some real moments. Again it doesn't change the fact that Casey has the emotional depth of a fork, but yeah it was really quite stunning.

#05: Zack & (FikShun) Phillip Chbeeb Hip-hop "Sail"


I wanted this to be good. And in the places were the movement was more confined it was, but anytime legs and arms were moving at the same time Zack completely lost it any pop in his movements and just looked gangly. It doesn't help that FikShun looks to another tWitch in his role as a hip-hop allstar in that he just completely outdanced Zack from beginning to end. But as I say there are some moments of greatness like the bit where Zack is bent back leaning on FikShun's back and they are almost waving out their arms, but there are other points where I've never seen Zack so unco-ordinated. All in all it was great choreography from Phillip but they should have thrown this routine out when Emilio got eliminated because no-one was going to do it full justice.

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


This routine was so heartwarming and light and just really quite joyous. It's one of those magical routines that can have them playing with a swing for a good portion of it and it still feels like a full start to finish routine with real feeling. Yeah it as just quite magical and a great reminder of what made Rickerie underwhelming special to begin with

#03: Jacque & (Will) Sean Cheesman Contemporary "99 Red Balloons"


For a routine featuring something that looks like it came from the Total Wipeout set this routine was truly stunning. There was such a grace and elegance even when working with the prop that continued with every movement after it. Will is also such a difficult dancer to work with because it's so easy to look your age next to him but Jacque looked every inch a woman witha mature performance to match. Another routine that let it's moments happen naturally and breath. Stunning.

#02: Jessica & (Ade) Ray Leeper "Boneless"


You know what's funny? If this was a Mark Kanemura routine (which it very well could have been) people would have been jizzing themselves. I loved this and will make no apologizes for doing so. This Jazz-Funk style has been so entertaining me and this routine succeeded on so many levels. It was high energy, stylised and showed off the star quality everyone, bar I prior to this routine, gave Jessica such acclaim for. Now if there is one problem with this routine it is Jessica's mugging which is actually cringe-worthy in the opening. I will say that this is not as good as Primative but I still do love it and it' another strong showing for Jessica in her own style. Also Ade is killing the all-star game this season.

#01: Ricky & (Anya) Jean-Marc Generuex Cha-cha "Dare""


A timely reminder from Anya that she will always be the US version's reigning ballroom KWEEN. She was so so so fierce in this it's barely fair to any other girl who's danced cha-cha on that stage. Like her moving hair out of her face was the best thing about this whole night. AND SURPRISE OF THE NIGHT RICKY SUH-LAYING. Like ubedawerk Ricky. I've said elsewhere his arms were sometimes a bother for me, but once I get past that he was essentially perfect in this. He looked sexy and masculine and every inch a great partner for Anya. I can't actually believe how good he was in this and it has completely reignited my love for him. And inspired a new love for Anya.

#09: Jacque & Zack Jean-Marc Generuex Foxtrot "Anything Goes" Eh. The only routine I garnered no enjoyment from tonight.
#08: Valarie & (tWitch) Willdabeast Hip-hop "Yeah" This was super fun and cute and I liked it a lot. I doubt it will be memorable to me in the long run though.
#07: Jessica & Casey Doriana Sanchez Disco "Dim All The Lights" Loved this. It was nice to see a disco that was both good and not just an endless series of lifts (a la Tiffany & Brandon's...)
#06: Casey & (Makenzie) Stacey Tookey Contemporary "Over You" Uninspired choreography aside, this was really beautiful. Casey and Makenzie are a really well matched pair.
#05: Zack & (FikShun) Phillip Chbeeb Hip-hop "Sail" This was a really cool routine (with a really strange song choice for Phillip's style...) that could have been amazing had Zack been even a little bit less tragic. Fik-shun was amazing though, I'm glad he got the chance to do this heart.gif
#04: Valerie & Ricky Spencer Liff Broadway "I've Got A World On A String" Ricky was f*cking mindblowing in this. I didn't think it was possible for me to hold Ricky in any higher regard than I already did but he's soared once again. He nailed the style better than any contemporary guy since Neil (and maybe Jakob). It makes me sad that this is probably the only time we'll see him in the style sad.gif This was an adorable routine and I loved everything about it.
#03: Jacque & (Will) Sean Cheesman Contemporary "99 Red Balloons" roll2.gif At the Total Wipeout comment lmao.gif Can't unsee. This was really beautiful, but now I just want to watch Total Wipeout.
#02: Jessica & (Ade) Ray Leeper "Boneless" F*cking loved this. But I disagree with you, I think Jessica's mugging was totally appropriate for this routine and was a big part of why I loved this so much. I like mugging when it's done with the right routine (refer back to my top 10 auditions) haha.gif
#01: Ricky & (Anya) Jean-Marc Generuex Cha-cha "Dare"" Ricky heart.gif So proud he nailed it, even if he won't get the credit for it from a large proportion of posters on here who'd resigned themselves to hating this before it even happened closedeyes.gif But yeah, Anya omg.gif Perhaps my favourite all-star performance from her?? shocked.gif

Probs her DWTS contract gets in the way. Plus there were only 2 opportunities for a female ballroom All-Star this season.

Which is pretty crappy in itself.

And only 2 appearances from Ryan from the guys.

I guess in the past there hasn't been that many either. Well starting in S8.

S8: Chelsie, Pasha, Pasha, Pasha, Anya, Janette, Pasha
S9: Anya, Ryan, Anya
S10: Witney, Chelsie, Dmitry, Witney
S11: Jenna, Ryan, Ryan, Anya

I think once Pasha got out of the picture it became harder for them to get a male ballroom All-Star (compounded with the fact that until S10 there wasn't a young male ballroomer who made it far...though it's a little surprising Paul or Alan weren't called on).
