Another couple says 'ciao' on 'So You Think You Can Dance'

Well, it’s that time again – elimination night. I think there are some candidates for execution, but, as usual, there’s no guessing who the American public will fall in love with. So let’s not waste any time guessing, as the truth is about to be revealed. Eventually. In about 55 minutes, more or less. On (and on and on) with the show.

The group dance doesn’t wow me, but the dancers all look a little stressed out. Which is completely understandable, really.   Lil’ C is back, as is Kristin Chenoweth, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. Kristin plugs her country album. She made a music video. And we get to see it. For about a second. And because it’s a snippet, I can’t tell if I like the song or if the video makes any sense at all. But Kristin looks good, and that’s all that matters, I suppose.  

Without further ado (but I thought there was a lot of ado), Cat welcomes our first three couples. Melanie and Marko are first up. No way they’re going home. They really are the couple to beat, if you ask me. We see all the kissing again, along with a bonus kiss between Melanie and Marko. And yes, they’re safe.  

Ashley and Chris are up next. Chris looks discouraged already. And for good reason, as he and Ashley are in the bottom three. Next up are Ryan and Ricky. Her hair looks great. They’re not in danger, which is disappointing, honestly. I still don’t completely feel like Ryan is delivering the goods.   We halt the bloodbath for a plug for National Dance Day. Robin Antin did a sexy routine, NappyTabs did a fun routine, and Mary Murphy did an old geezer routine. And each routine will be posted on on Wednesday. Plug, plug, plug, zzzzzzzz.

Read the full recap, and find more toe-tapping fun on!
