Great night of dance. Ellen Degeneres was a guest judge and she was nothing short of terrrific. She was funny and so full of love for dance. She added a lot to the show.
Here are my favorites.
Best Couple - One measurement for me is how many times I rewind and replay the routine. I replayed Tyce Diorio's Breast Cancer routine tonight 3 times and saved the show so I can play it again later. I thought Melissa and Ade were in trouble after their first routine, but then they danced the dance of the night, if not the season. They were magnificent.
Best Lifts - Ade and Melissa. Ade is so strong and the two trust each other so much that they make it look effortless.
Best Solo - Brandon
Best Male Dancer - Ade
Best Female - I'm for the first time going to have to call it a tie between Jeanine and Melissa
Best Choreography - Tyce Diorio. I think we will see this routine up for a grammy next year.
Most likely to go home. I hate to see them go as they're both wonderful, but I think it will be Evan and Janette.
Janette and Jason went home tonight. 100th episode - saw some wonderful emmy nominated routines from past years.
