So satisfying

Okay, so I've been busy the last few weeks (wait, strike that: BUSY. Like mutha-effin BUSY FOR REAL). So I've lagged in my So You Think You Can Dance coverage. But tonight is the finale. I've just come home from a sing-a-long screening of Hairspray (So much fun!!) and I'm ready to recap the end of another awesome season of my favorite reality competition show.

Before I fire up TiVO, a few notes on our final four.

You know, I would have like to see Pasha here in the final four, if only because I just liked him as a guy. He seemed like a sweet, good-hearted gentleman and performed as one helluva partner, and it would have been cool for him to be here. And y'all know I haven't loved Neil. But... well? Neil outdanced him. I have to agree with the voters here, Neil stepped up, as they say, and really earned this spot. I don't love him as much as Pasha, but I think the final four turned out right. Danny is sensational to watch, and I'm impressed with how his attitude has shifted for the better. Lacey, while still annoying in how she's constantly mugging for the camera, delivers like a professional. Neil's come a long way. And Sabra, well. She's just a gem, and a joy to watch, and going into this finale, I really, really hope she wins. Let's see what happens, shall we?

(Also, last night's show: I liked the girls' fox routine, it made me all misty. And Mia Michaels' contemporary routine for the two guys was bad ass. Amazing. Loved it.)

Holy crap, what the hell is Cat Deeley WEARING? She looks like she looks like her skirt fell off just before the show started, and she fastened it up with some glue, safety pins, and a whole crapload of ...BROWN TULLE? Lord. Cat, memo, take this down: NO. That is all.

Also: Why is Mary Murphy so crazy?? Can we get OFF the bloody hot tamale train, already?

YAY! They brought the clogger back! That dude is awesome. I liked seeing that pop&locker again, too. He's rad. You know the one I mean, right? Brad Gainor, or something? Look him up on YouTube, he's amazing.

Aaaaand.... Lacey's out of the competition. Of the top four, that is as it should be. The top two should be Sabra and Danny. Let's see if I'm right.

And I am! Yay! The two best dancers were voted the two best dancers! See: This is why I love this show so much. I mean, besides the obvious joy I get from watching all the dancing. They really get the best dancers into the top 20, and the combination of voting and judging really refines a proper top 10. So by the time it gets to America's votes, they're really choosing between a bunch of hard-core, hyper-talented people and it's hard to go wrong. And even so, the results are usually (only a few exceptions) highly satisfying. Really, there's no bad here. I love this show.

*sniff* I can't believe it's almost over.

Okay: The Cat & Nigel thing was a total RIPOFF. BOO! LAME! BOO!


*sigh* See? So satisfying. And with that, we now return to our regular, non-SYTYCD programming.

I'm enrolling in dance classes in the morning.
