If Tiffany wins over Eliana...I just. No.
Chehon is in. And Cole looks like he knows he's a goner.
Yep- Cyrus is in.
It's a bit of a shame because Cole so outdanced Chehon tonight. That's where results being given after the next week is disconcerting.
Someone remind us to watch on Tuesday next week!

Very happy for Chehon, at least. Pulling for he and Eliana but I have a feeling the utterly "undefeated" Cyrus and Tiffany are winning. Blergh. (And I like Cyrus in general, but I really feel like he shouldn't win this.)
I get Cyrus getting the votes, but where is Tiffany's fanbase? It's remarkable.
Cyrus has dance a lot of styles and only in the hip has he gotten to dance in styles but he hasn't had one great dance and maybe 3 good ones. His dance with Comfort was intriguing but it lacked maturity. Cyrus looks like a man but he dancing young even in hip hop imo. Not that he wasn't hitting hard and better than the other guys but he moves like he's new to the choreography and sometimes style. Which I know is true but I don't want to see it. I mind mistakes less than seeing the choreography. Especially in a dancer that is getting praised for his character. He puts everything he has to learning though and I'm proud of him. I can see his talent. If the other guys this season were richer in what they have brought to the show, I would be so that he made the final but he has a pretty similar strength/weakness ratio that other guys brings to my enjoyment of the show. It's all the same.
Cole has had a similar character every week. Pretty much every dance except for that geeky hip hop and the baseball showcase. And this week he pretty much had it twice. He has had some hard technical dances and some stand out dances. Last week was not one of them since that dance was pretty much all about the tension in Allison's body. It was a gorgeous dance but Cole was as bad as Ade-there to support his girl partner with little to do him self. I think he had two very demanding dances today and dance them both wonderful. There's nothing I need to see form him though. On tour he's going to dance one dance even if he's actually dancing 3 or more, they're going to feel the same...
Chehon makes the most awful faces But the tension in his body and the flight he can get is beyond breathtaking. Boy should never ever attempt to do ballroom. And don't bring up that Tango because it was as close to his style that the choreographer's could bring into a tango. no hip hop. Ok I admit it I just want to see him do ballet.
The Boys are a mess
Tiffany and Benji was super fun tonight. Still think she dances small (even smaller than Courtney G) but luckily for her Benji does not and can fill up the stage solo so with them dancing a part a lot of the time he was able to keep the dance entertaining. I wish that the dance was more in hold. I know Benji can do a whole dance in hold. I spent today watchin every dance I could find of his from the show and from the last few years. It felt more like a Broadway inspired Jive. I did like it though. Probably my favorite Tiffany dance of the season and the only Ballroom that I completely like. Oh right Chehon's ballet paso Tango.
Poor Witney only getting to do Ballroom with Chehon Poor girl I have seen way too many Contemporaries from her. A freaking waste is all I can say
I couldn't even watch Twitch tonight-Eliana demands attention even when she shouldn't Her dance with Cole was interesting though. It did remind me of a couple of Wade's dances though. And also the anger that Cole and she were showing each other felt like a rehearsal and not a show. I hate doing this but I can't help thinking what Allison would do in the piece since she danced with Cole and the dance had a similar feel to Allison's Mia dance Ethna

How does voting work now? No voting tonight?
I think Cyrus and Chehon both have problems in the versatility department. However, Chehon is forced to dance and is actually critiqued while Cyrus is just not, in both areas.
That bothers me.
I wasn't that much into Cole during the season, but I much preferred him over Cyrus in the finale. I think he was poorly served by all the twisted characters he had to play in all the contemporary numbers he had to do. People couldn't connect to him and were bored.
I'm bracing for a Tiffany/Cyrus win.
I missed the beginning (and Benji's new nose ) due to Clinton's speech. Didn't take notes and spoiled myself for the results. Unsurprising, but disappointing on the ladiezz side.
Tyce's piece for Chehon and Kathryn was exquisite
Wanted to love Eliana and Cole's Mia piece, but that Barber piece is SO evocative and SO well used in SO many, many modern dances that this didn't work for me. I'd have liked the dance better to different music.
Christina Applegate and Tyler Jesse Ferguson should be the only "celebrity" guest judges allowed on the show.
I barely remember Marko. I looked him up, and saw videos of him and Tadd, and I remembered Tadd....and I still barely remember Marko.
ETA: FLOVED that piece from Axis Dance! All of the works I've seen with able bodied/disabled dancers have been with women, and this was so visceral, so athletic, and just plain awesome.
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
I so want Eliana to win - she is so fantastic. You all really think it will be Tiffany? I think maybe Cyrus, who I really like despite the fact that he's not the best dancer in other styles. He's so likeable.

Some of you seem to have so little faith in Eliana. I think she was only in the bottom once at the very beginning of the season (it's been such a long season with multiple breaks so I'm not sure), and yet every week someone predicts she's going home. Witney was in the bottom repeatedly. I knew she was the one going home last night and I say good. Her solo showed how totally immature she is as a dancer and her cha cha wasn't much better. If someone knew nothing about the competitors and watched it, they wouldn't have guessed Latin dance is her genre. She has the attitude, but her moves are not sophisticated.
On the other hand, I finally saw Tiffany last night. I thought she did a really nice job dancing with Benji in the jive/swing. Her solo was decent. She did well with Cyrus. It took her all season, but she finally stood out.
As for the guys, Cole ran out of gas two weeks ago. Maybe it was the injury. Not surprised he was eliminated especially since Cyrus is clearly the fan favorite and since the voting is based on last week's performances, Chehon carried huge momentum out of that Argentine tango.
[QUOTE=twinsmom;3676572]The guy in the wheelchair (Joel Brown) is from my little town and his 2 younger siblings are friends of my kids. I had no idea he was doing dance. Last thing I knew he was singing in a band. It was great to see him.
Here's an article about him:

Eliana for the win! As far as the boys, I care not. I don't think either is all that good. The way they pimp Cyrus, I'm guessing his vote totals are so far above the others that he is a sure thing.
Whether Tiffany has some deep and vast voting base we'll know next week, but I never doubted that Eliana would be in the final. Especially given how many times Witney was in the bottom.
I was watching football and convention so I ff'ed around a bit after it was over. I only saw the group routine, Tiffany/Benji, Witney solo (meh), Cole/Melanie, and Eliana/Twitch (nice way to mask the fact that ballet girl probably can't do hip hop) -- then the results.
Tiffany is officially my Courtney Galliano plus. I just don't get it. But then again, apart from Eliana, so many of the girls faded from the first few weeks that I guess I shouldn't be surprised. She's always been the same, she didn't fade, but she never sparked for me. I'd have had Amelia, Audrey, Lindsay, and Witney stay longer than Tiffany. At least.
Well, I think Cyrus will win this thing. Not so sure about the girls. Tiffany seems to have an enormous phone bank at home.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
