what?! no suspenders!

Sabra may have won, but the real star of tonight's SYTYCD finale was Sara, in at least three (I lost count) of the choreographers' favorite routines. Coincidence? I think not. That disco, that hot pink dress, that west coast swing, and even Wade Robson's cabaret hoover really showcased just how talented and versatile she really is.

That said, I could not have been happier when first Lacey and then Neil were sent home. Clearly, America read my blog and, as requested, put both Danny and Sabra in the top two. It was like a dream...And I guess I expected Danny to win because I was floored when Cat called Sabra's name. Shut the front door, indeed. As I wrote last night, I would have been pleased with either of them winning (if only there could've been a tie), and yeah, I guess I'm happy a gal won after guys took the title the first two seasons. And I'm not worried about Danny's career. I think Sabra and Danny should get married and have amazing dancing babies.

Sadly, it doesn't look like I'll make it to the tour when it comes to Boston. I think we were out of town last year, but I was really hoping somebody would buy me a ticket for my upcoming, not to mention fairly symbolic, birthday. But by the afternoon of August 11th, Boston tickets (at least in pairs of two) were already sold out. At least I have the memories...

I will remember you, SYTYCD. It's been fun.

I really had nothing invested in this show; I watched because it's summer and I like mindless TV during these months. But that said, I have to disagree about Neil. I don't think he was the greatest dancer, but I thought he was the best performer. During the dance routines that required a bit of acting, I thought he did really well, especially in the devil and angel routine, and that two princes thing this week. I think Danny has amazing form, but Neil is who I would want to see if I ever went to a Broadway musical.

Which I will never, ever do.

Fair enough. Neil definitely deserved to be in the top four, I'll agree, but ultimately I found Danny and Sabra to just be more enjoyable to watch....that is, after Sara had been eliminated. Subjective as dance is, it seems like every viewer requires their own special blend of form, technique, and showmanship.

If you're feeling nostalgic, check out a couple of top Neil routines posted by the folks at the SYTYCD fan blog.

PS - c'mon, you know you're gonna watch next summer now that you're hooked!

Aw, I'm sorry you can't go to that live show - I saw a listing for it and immediately thought of you. How can they not still have seats for their number one fan?

I know, right?! There are single seats left, but I'm not sure I want to brave the mob alone...or sit apart from Neal, who I'd have to drag along, of course. There's always next season...
