I don't know about you, but I spent almost the full two hours last night dialing furiously, mostly for Miles.
But did it pay off? Your final four revealed below the jump...
We have Nico, obviously. And we have Natalli, unfortunately but obviously (clearly the distaste I feel is not a nationwide sentiment). And Allie -- good for her; the judges were unfairly mean to her last night. And... Miles! My aching fingers are thankful that their hard work did not go unrewarded.
I'm sad for Lisa -- she really had grown on me over the last couple of weeks -- but I think her frustration is telling. While Izaak's sense of accomplishment outweighed his disappointment, Lisa has clearly believed all along that she deserved to be in the Top 4, and that it's Canada's fault for not voting her there. No, Lisa, it's your fault for not connecting well enough with Canada, and also, in all likelihood, for alienating people through your arrogance. It doesn't matter how nice you may be behind the scenes, if you can't appear humble before the people whose vote you need to stay in the game, your days are numbered.
Phew. I've been holding that in for a long time.
Will you be voting next Wednesday? And who will you be voting for? Even though I'm totally and completely sure Nico will win, I think I might fight the good fight on behalf of Miles anyway; I love watching him move -- all smoothness and fluidity and fun.
Also, I really want to hear what your favourite routines of the week were!
I enjoy a good disco. Also, Nico and Natalli's quickstep is the first quickstep I can remember really enjoying. I also liked the cinderella jazz that Izaak and Allie did. And also thought Miles and Lisa did a good Cha Cha.
I wish Lisa were in the top 4, but everyone is quite talented so it is hard no matter who goes. While I share your distase for Natalli she did entertain me this week.
I hope that Natalli is 4th, Miles 3rd, and then surprising even me I hope that Nico is 2nd and Allie wins. I think that she has the talent, she always entertains me in her partner dance, and I LOVE her solos all the time. I will probably spend most of the two hours voting for Allie, but will definitely throw a few Nico's way.
I am so excited for next week!!
I liked the disco, but I thought Natalli's outfit was awful. And not just because I don't like her -- it was unflattering on her! And it's hard to make a girl like that look bad.
The Melissa Williams jazz piece was ADORABLE. The whole concept of it was cute, top to bottom -- song, costumes, choreography, Cinderella ending...
I hope it's Natalli in fourth, Allie in third, and that Miles pulls a win out of his ass. That would be so fun! I think he deserves it in a way, because he has BY FAR the most personality out of all the Top 20, and you can tell that all the other contestants positively adore him. (I also hear through my inside-scoop grapevine that this is very true -- he's the glue in the group.)
But honestly, I'll be happy as long as Natalli doesn't win.
I'm so sad Lisa went, after Blakes routine I had goosebumps, and I am so happy that Miles is in the Top 4. He blew me away in that routine. By far my fav of the night. My second fav was the Jazz with Allie and Izaak, I thought it allowed Izaak to go out on a high. Don't think it holds a candle to Twitch and Comforts Hip hop on the American version. Looking forward to the show next week, and to see the results with the judges favorites from the season. Any guesses which ones will top the list? I for one want to see Lisa and Nico's hot Blake routine, Vincent and Lisas afro jazz, any anything by Nico and Arrasay. My call for how they will finish is Natalli -4, Allie - 3, Miles - 2 and Nico -1. I don't think anyone can touch him, but will vote for Miles cause he is my Calgary boy!
Miles is positively adorable and talented. I wouldn't be disappointed if he wrecks my predictions by finishing second or first even.
I am hoping to see the Nico/Arassay angel routine. And the Arassay/Vincent Disco and anything that Mellisa has choreographed really.
Hmm... good question! Nothing is really sticking out for me, so I'm going to have to think on that one.
