So who do you hope will make it to the Top three? And who do you think will make it to the top three? (Very different topic!)

The poll is just for your personal hopes. Predictions can be discussed here in the thread (outside of the poll).

My top three hopefuls at this point are Ashley Rich, Jordan Casanova and Iveta Lukosiute. I personally like Iveta a lot, she seems smart, yet humble. I admire that she's worked so hard to build her skills in the genres outside her expertise. And Jordan has a spark on stage that is amazing (although off-stage, somewhat less so)!

My predictions for the top three are Ryan Ramirez, Melanie Moore and Caitlynn Lawson. It seems like that last few seasons that the (relatively) generic white chicks make it far. The first two have been featured a fair bit, so that'll work in their favour. Missy Morelli doesn't stand a chance as female viewers won't go for someone who so brazenly says she's trying to fill the sexpot role. And Miranda Maleski won't go far...has she gotten any airtime before the top 20 were revealed??? :confused:

Mel, Ashley, and Iveta are the ones I'd like to have the most staying power.

I like all of them, but I really thought Sasha was exceptional in the first dance in the top 20 show. There is just something about the way she controls her body; it feels like every movement is completed fully and I find her arm movements and positions exquisite. While I think Melanie is very cute, just comparing that aspect of their dancing, there's a maturity to Sasha's dancing that I really love.

Sasha and Melanie really stood out to me in the group dance and wasn't even crazy about the number. I love Iveta when she's doing ballroom. Who knows what it is going to be like when she does Hip Hop.

I think Iveta's biggest problem is going to be loosening up for hip hop. But I was somewhat impressed that she did not stick out in a bad way during the group routines, especially during the ladies' routine. With nine contemporary women and one ballroom specialist, she could have easily looked very out-of-place.

I can't even think about it until I've seen how they perform this week - although I've got a strong hunch Melanie Moore will remain my favorite lady.

I feel like I haven't even seen close to half of the dancers dance. But, assuming that Nigel and the other judges get to choose who out of the top three will go home, I'm going to predict that Ryan and Sasha make it to the top ten. (That's also why I think that at least one of the two dancers with expressed sexpot approaches will make it to the top ten.)

I really like Sasha and love what I've seen of Melanie. I also really liked Ashley's musicality and the little we've seen of I think it's Caitlynn. I'm hoping that Iveta doesn't get the early ballroom boot and gets to do some ballroom dances. (Please let her do a dance with Pasha again during the all-star rounds). But, I could have a very different list of favorites after I see more of the dancers.

Miranda and Clarice stood out to me in their in style dance. Jordan stood out in the 10 lady dance. I expected Ryan and Sasha to excel and they did. Iveta blended really well in the group number which is a good thing. I really like Ashley and melanie too though they didn't stand out to me as much as others did. I don't know enough about Caitlyn yet, so far, the only one I am not crazy about yet is Missy.

Missy is the only female dancer that I can say won't make it too far. Even though both she and Jordan claim to be sexpots, she seems to be working really hard at it, which makes it unsexy. Jordan is just a natural standout. All of the ladies are so strong this year I can't pick a top 3. I will try again after I see the first pairings.

Am I alone in thinking Melanie is kinda boring?

Yes, when you have to alert others to the fact that you are, indeed, sexy...it kinda wrecks it!!! :lol:

You may not be alone in thinking that, but I don't find her boring at all. I love her dancing.

Iveta stood out for me the most in the top 20 show. I liked Melanie's audition *a lot* but she didn't stand out for me in the numbers on the show.

Jordan, Ryan and Melanie have that "girl next door" thing that does well on this show. Sasha and Ashley have that quality too.
Iveta is going to scare the teens.

Nothing to do with who I like.

Is scare a synonym for inspire in any language? :D
