SYTYCD – Week Three Performance Show

Nigel, Mary, Kristin and Lil'C (I love the way they are leaning together, so cute)

The judges for this weeks top 16 episode of So You Think You Can Dance were the staples Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy as well as choreographer, and prolific speaker, Lil’ C and broadway superstar, singer, actress, Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth. I cannot believe she was there this week, she is incredible and absolutely adorable.

This year they have decided to change things up and do a group performance as well as a duet. The first group to perform was Sasha Mallory, Chris Koehl, Ryan Ramirez, Tadd Gadduang, Clarice Ordaz, Marko Germar, Miranda Maleski and Mitchell Kelly. Group one performed a Tyce Diorio Broadway piece to “Hit the Road Jack” by Ray Charles.

The first duet of the night went to Sasha Mallory and Alexander Frost who got contemporary again. The two performed a Dee Caspary piece to the song “Belong” by the Cary Brothers.

The first ballroom duet of the night was a Jean-Marc Genereux samba to the song “Put It In a Love Song” by Alicia Keys featuring Beyonce. The couple performing this routine was Caitlynn Lawson and Mitchell Kelly.

Miranda Maleski and Robert Taylor Jr were next with the second Tyce Diorio broadway routine of the night to “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)” from Sophisticated Ladies.

Dancing a NappyTabs lyrical hip-hop dance were Melanie Moore and Marko Germar to Lenona Lewis’ “I Got You.”

The one and only jazz piece of the night was a Sonya Tayeh number danced by Ashley Rich and Chris Koehl to the song “Lights Go Down (District 78 Remix)” by Telepathe.

The second Jean-Marc Genereux ballroom routine was a Foxtrot, performed by Clarice Ordaz and Jess LeProtto to “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra. (Love the song choice)

Ryan Ramirez and Ricky Jaime danced a Sonya Tayeh contemporary routine to Robyn’s “With Every Heartbeat.” (Acoustic) I love, love, love Robyn and am happy her stuff is continually appearing on the show.

For the second hip-hop routine of the night Jordan Casanova and Tadd Gadduang performed a NappyTabs piece to David Guetta’s “Memories.”

And the last routine of the night was a Dee Caspary contemporary to The Civil Wars (incredible album, if you get the chance you should buy it) “Poison and Wine.” This piece was danced by the other eight partners of the first group: Jordan Casanova, Robert Taylor, Jr., Melanie Moore, Jess Leprotto, Ashley Rich, Alexander Fost, Caitlynn Lawson and Ricky Jaime.
