So You Think You Can Dance

SPOILERS ahead. Two more dancers have left the competition — at the end of the show, this time. (Our disgust re: last week’s format was “noted”!) I’ll post my recap of tonight’s performances later on; in the meantime, discuss!

Jasmine Mason has been eliminated, while Jade Zuberi had to bow out due to injury.

Alexis Juliano and Jenna Johnson also had to dance for their lives, while bottom-three guys BluPrint and Curtis were automatically safe because Jade was already out.

I’m shocked that it’s Jasmine leaving instead of Alexis! She’s so lithe and explosive and has this look about her that’s very “I’m a teenager and full of life!” but never came across as immature. Nigel and the producers seem to be using the choreographers’ comments as determining factors when deciding who to eliminate. The choreographers didn’t like having to give Alexis the same note over and over, and they thought Jasmine doubted herself too much. I never saw any doubt from her at all! Gotta say I’m bummed about this one.

Your thoughts? Did you like Paula Abdul and Erin Andrews as guest judges?
