I didn't see lots of growth in any of the dancers either, Jody, certainly not what we've seen in the past. If anyone, Jeanine showed the most right after (and because) Phillip left. As more accomplished dancers are auditioning and making the top 20, it seems like the choreographers are able to create more difficult dances right from the beginning. There's not much of an arc to the dancers' growth. And Evan may have run out of gas--several of his dances were very close together.

It looked like a lot bigger audience at the Kodak, which I'm guessing is why the finale was held there.

Wow! I always skip through most of Cat talking, so I really didn't know the prize had jumped to $250,000! I checked the web site and saw that Joshua also won that amount. Wasn't it $100,000 before that, or had it been going up and I didn't notice? No wonder they have so many people auditioning!!


Before Joshua won there was a cash prize and some type of guaranteed contract. Nick got an apartment rent free for a year in New York City and cash so that he could try his hand on Broadway. Benji got money and a guaranteed job with Celine Dion in Vegas for a year. I don't remember what Sabra got.

Oh yea, Kat said there were over 3K people in the audience last night.

I noticed an absence of your favorite style in there Mr Sweet :D ( for those that don't know, Stuart is a hip-hop machine :lol: )


Where's that "sarcasm" smilie again?

Oh, and to add on to the post above, the top 12 dancers will have guaranteed employment on the tour, that's something too.

I just read this article at msnbc.com - http://www.msnbc.msn...ent-television/. I thought it was a good read. :D

I thought Nigel had already said a couple of times that Ryan was in the top 20 for season 6. Or did I miss something...:rolleyes:

I know Ryan's going to Las Vegas, but I don't remember it being said that he's in the top 20.

Agreed, Mr. Guercio. I hope that Evan's brother Ryan makes it into the top 20, and I hope he is joined by ballroom dancers, jazz dancers, and perhaps another ballet dancer.


I kinda get the feeling that he does based on the comments that Nigel made last night .. Something to the effect of "...and we'll have another Kasprzak..." referring to next season. Granted it could be simplified to mean auditions/Vegas which we already know about. However, I think it was an off the cuff remark and means more than the simplified version.

Nigel did not actually say that, but by intonation and wording .. it almost seems like a foregone conclusion at this point.

The fact that Stuart will now actually watch the Hip-Hop routines says a lot, though.

Hey, give me some credit for simply saying, "they're not my cup of tea" and moving on. At least they didn't have any of that "crumping" nonsense.

I don't know if the lack of "crumping" is to blame, but did anyone else notice Mia Michaels being much more civilized this year? Other than aspiring to rip Evan's face off with her teeth, I don't recall her threatening bodily injury to anyone, even in the form of a compliment.

Mia was more subdued this year for some reason. LiL C (the head crumper) was a judge but he never did a routine which is also strange. What ever happened to Dan Karaty?

He's probably too busy with SYTYCD Canada and the Netherlands, plus he's now a stager and choreographer on America's Got Talent.

Well, we got you to post, even if it's not about the finale. :D

Prediction:

Brandon and Jeanine are the 2 finalists, and Jeanine wins.

If I'm right....send money.

If I'm wrong....my name is Doug. :lol:

Oh, Charise, I always intended to post - I just gave up on the season when I noticed the judicial shenanigans...

Final results:

1. Jeanine
2. Brandon
3. Evan
4. Kayla

The Prosecution rests.

I'd say the final four are all winners, and I do agree that this was a fairly tight final episode, filled with great performances. I congratulate Jeanine Mason for her victory and hope she goes on to greatness.

Goes to show if you can hang in there early on, as Jeanine actually didn't for me (when she was paired with Phillip), and have a super-solid last 2-3 shows, you can win. I do feel that she "grew" the most of the final four during the show, which certainly isn't a requirement, but the judges like that and heap praise on you. :D

So, big congrats to Jeanine! She really did "peak at the right time." In my eyes, the entire Top 10 was the best they've had on the show. There was some outstanding choreography sprinkled throughout the season, with a couple winners from the very first show which was just explosive with talent!

OK, some clarification. I heard last night a comment from Nigel about being in Vegas next week (hoping to meet up with Paula Abdul, BTW). So it does not appear if the Top 20 has been set yet for S6.
