Writing is on the wall for two on 'So You Think You Can Dance'

It’s results time! As Cat Deeley notes, it’s the last dance for one guy and one girl, which sounds either romantic or possibly fatal. I haven’t ruled out the chance we’ll see a snuff reality TV show, but I’m hoping the trend doesn’t start with dancing shows. I'm going to try to live blog this, so let's see how it goes.

The opening number is a Bollywood routine, and it’s a good choice for a group. I could believe I was watching an actual Bollywood movie, except for the absence of a stickily romantic plot and the wacky comic relief. But it's good nonetheless.

Nigel, Mary and Travis are back at the judges’ table, but Carmen isn’t. I guess she had something better to do, although I find that hard to believe.

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet is in the house, as is Florence + the Machine.  

The first three couples take the stage. Melanie and Marko are up with Caitlynn and Mitchell. Neither of these duos could be going home, could they? Granted, Melanie and Marko’s routine wasn’t my favorite, but that was the routine, not them. And as for Caitlynn and Mitchell, best routine of the night. Enough said. They’re probably both safe.  And they are.

Ashley and Chris on the block. And they're in danger. Yeah, saw that one coming. Clarice and Jess face off against Jordan and Tadd. The next two dancers in danger are ... Jordan and Tadd. Mary can't believe it. But then she points out that it was their weakest performance to date and the field is incredibly tough. So, she really can believe it.

Ryan and Ricky are up against Sasha and Alexander. I suspect the lack of swag in Sasha and Alexander's routine will cost them.

The final couple in danger is ... Ryan and Ricky. Really? I'm surprised. I wasn't wowed by their routine, but I thought it was better than the Hip Hop 101 number by Sasha and Alexander. Travis is surprised, too. He tells them to dance for their lives. Well, yes, that would be advisable, I guess. No pressure, kids!
