I was very surprised when the judges stood up for "Power of Love" yet they didn't stand up for "Possibly Maybe". Tiffany was outstanding in that routine but I thought it was a very cheesy and generic contemporary routine. Whereas Cole's routine was shocking and outstanding. "Possibly Maybe" way more memorable. This is just my opinion... does anyone else agree?

This was supposed to be a poll. but I guess it didn't want to work. closedeyes.gif

Possibly Maybe is one of the best dances ever from the show.
That is due to Allison being perfect and the best dancer that ever stepped on SYTYCD.
I read on youtube comments that 'Allison should win every season of the show' and I couldn't agree more.
Cole was good also.

I still love Tiffany and she was amazing, again! Even with that cheesy music.

I was more impressed with "Possibly Maybe" overall, but it was mostly because of Allison, and Allison's not competing. If I were to compare Tiffany's performance to Cole's, I would say Tiffany's performance was more impressive.

I agree with this 100%. Allison was absolutely perfect. Though she's always been one of my favorites, it amazes me that this many years later she can continue to amaze me.

I don't want to suffer any fan-boy/girl related injuries but tiffany was being lifted for almost the whole dance, which I surely the same as cyrus lifting jaimie for his whole dance?

And to answer possibly maybe wins hands down! Also cole isn't getting enough credit! Yes allison was stunning as per, but I really enjoyed cole in it as well

After rewatching the routines I'm still more impressed by Cole's performance (who more than hold his own with Allison) than by Tiffany's but to her defense it has to be said that Mandy Moore's choreography required overblown and pompous dramatics, there's no room for subtlety and depth as a result which made her routine feel hollow to me not to mention cheesy and tacky.

Tiffany > Cole
Allison > Ade

But overall, I loved TPOL more. Both were great though.

Imo Power of love is a lesser Cosmic love. It doesn't have the flow or emotional behind it but the choreography feels similar to me. Tiffany just doesn't bring the emotion of the song. She seems happy to be performing but her face doesn't show the maturity Celine's overwrought vocals demand. She has the cheesy down but there has got to be a combination that just isn't there imo. The piece moves ok but nothing special. Cosmic love brought more and moved better. At least live on tour-which is my last memories of the dance.

Possibly maybe is nearly all Allison for me. She is very fit right now and almost has the look of a traditional Ballerina in the piece. She kind of looks/moves like a doll/marionette and her performance feels like a silent movie. Her ability to stop is so sudden it's chillingly beautiful.Cole-I can't even see Cole's face. maybe the performance isn't lit for his color and costume. I do know that a lot of what Allison can do is because she has a partner who can lift her and carry her without making it obvious or a strain but the dance is all about her. it's about her need and her passion for him. It really is another take at addiction. I think Sonya was inspired by Cole's version of addiction and created a dance out of it. But it's still all about Allison's performance though. And it's choreographed that way. Which is annoying. It's understandable with Allison's talent but that's why the all stars should have been left to be the guest performers-especially this season when the dancers aren' getting a lot of dances to grow.

I would say Possibly Maybe could be one of the best dances on the show ever and one of the best if not the best Sonya routine, but without a doubt the most disturbing one I've ever seen, which I think is brilliant. For me to this is mostly because of Allison; heck I love Cole and I think he did great, but for me Allison is in her own league above any other dancer on SYTYCD. The one thing I think the dance and Cole suffer from is that Cole played basically the same kind of character as two weeks ago in addiction. But that wasn't his or Sonya's fault, that whole episode just shouldn't have happened. The choreography in this dance was very different and really amazingly good, so it deserves as much merit as addiction, but I feel just because of the similarity of the character and Cole having been in both it makes it seem like a spinoff.

I absolutely loved Tiffany and Ade. I usually don't like these type of dances to these type of songs (hated I Will Always Love You), but for some reason this worked for me really really well. I think it's because of Tiffany cause she is just a stunning dancer.

An interesting thing to note is how different these two dances are, they're basically the opposite. Possibly Maybe is dark and disturbing - this is actually the only time I felt pain when watching a dance (not even Kayla and Kupono's addiction really disturbed me and made me feel bad). And The Power of Love is uplifting and happy and beautiful. I think Possibly Maybe is probably artistically on a higher level, but I enjoyed both about the same, tho it totally opposite ways.

I enjoyed and found "Possibly Maybe" more interesting and powerful. I loved both routines though. But "The Power of Love" reminds me too much of other Contemporaries, like the Melissa/Ade first Contemporary and Caitlynn/Mitchell 2nd Contemporary.

You know what, though? As much as I absolutely LOVED Possibly Maybe, perhaps we should possibly maybe ask ourselves.....

If the All Star outshines the contestant they are dancing with, doesn't that defeat their purpose? I don't know how many people (me included) have said that they watched Allison the whole time. That's not exactly beneficial to Cole (and eventually...it didn't benefit him since he's now gone).

Or, should we go to the flip side of the argument and say that the All Star SHOULD be at that excellence level, in order to raise the bar for the contestant to meet them.

I always go back and forth with this, myself....and it's often in routines that - funny - either involve Allison or Twitch as an All Star.
