SYTYCD Season 9, it's about time!

If you have been following my blog for a while, or read my about me page, you know my favorite show of all time history is So You Think You Can Dance.

Many of you know that I am a competitive dancer, and this show is just like a cup of tea for me! Seriously, this show is a huge part of my life. I basically count down the days until it comes on again. This week it won't be on because of 4th of July! UGH. 
It's been a long year, and I'm so happy that SYTYCD Season 9 is finally here! 


The auditions kind of bore me. Because, you don't get to see the amazingly talented Top 20 perform stunning routines by the show's fabulous choreographers!
I mean seriously, the people who make up their dances are INCREDIBLE! If you watch the show, my favorite is definitely Sonya Tayeh, followed by Travis Wall and Stacey Tookey. Mia Michaels is pretty amazing too. 

The Top 20 is truly fantastic this year. My heart will forever be with Season 8's Top 20 because that is the year I became a true fan. I've watched some of past seasons, but Season 8 was really where I became addicted. 
But, I must admit, I'm really looking forward to this season. It's a great mix of some awesome dancers. I don't really like ballroom dancing, but I love the two ballroom girls who made the top 20, Lindsay and Whitney! 
There's always the typical contemporary and jazz dancers, which I love dearly. But this year, there's a guy who is Jazz/ marital arts! Isn't that cool? His name is Cole! 

But, like with every show, I do have my favorites, and here they are-


Audrey Case. She is definitely first in line for me. Her personality really won me over in the auditions. She is so adorable! And on top of a great personality, check out her amazing jazz skills! 



Yay neck farting and licking elbows! She is so cute! 

My next favorite is-

Alexa Anderson. I loved her last season too, and I was so sad when she didn't make it into the Top 20 with my other favorite, Ryan. This girl is just outstanding and beautiful, here, look at her!



Those are my top two favorite girls. But, I do like some others. Such as Whitney Carson and Lindsay Arnold, the two best friend ballroom dancers of the group.
The other girls, I'm not too crazy about at all. A few of them are very, very cocky which is so unnatractive to me and some of them are trying too hard. Janelle, Janaya, and Amber are okay. But Tiffany, Amelia, and Eliana, I cannot stand them at all. They need to go home and humble themselves.
Especially Eliana. God. I cannot stand that girl. She's a conceited brat.



The girls are fierce this year. I know if the show was not doing favorite guy and girl this time, a girl would definitely win.
But, there are a few of the boys I like. I don't feel as attached as I did last year though.

The first guy that I've liked since auditions for his unique style of dance and determination is-


Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer. He has no formal dance training, I don't think, and tried out with like two of his friends and they both didn't make it through Vegas Week. But Cyrus did, and he never gave up. I mean look at this guy, he's so cool!


My next favorite guy is-

Cole Horibe! This guy is also very unique! Check this shmexy dude out-


Aren't they amazing? The only other guys I even know the names of and sorta kinda care about are Will Thomas and Daniel Baker. The rest of them.. they don't really stick out to me at all. 

Okay, now for the best part, check out these STUNNING routines! I keep watching them over and over again, I can't get enough! 

This first one, a Sonya Tayeh routine, featuring my favorite dancer, Audrey, is one of my favorites of all time! This is one of my favorite songs too!


This one is just pure beauty. These top 10 girls are fierce. This is chorepgrpahed by the amazing Travis Wall!


This one is totally mesmerizing! My two favorites, Alexa and Will are in this!

The top 20. Mia Michaels. Just. Breathtaking. 

These dances just bring me to tears sometimes because they are so beautiful. This show inspires me to become a better dancer and improve myself all around. I love watching this show so much, it's just so inspirational and wonderful.

Hi Paige!
I've never commented on your blog before, but I've been reading it on and off for a while. But when I saw this post, I knew that I had to comment. I have been a bug sytycd fan for seasons. I myself am a dancer and choreographer, though unlike you, I don't dance competitively. I missed most of auditions and Vegas, but I don't really care about them. Because of that, I don't really know the dancers that well. I don't have a favorite yet, but I'll see how the season goes. That being said, I think that Cory is amazing :) I tend to have a bias towards jazz and hiphop dancers because those are my favorite styles, but so far I've been impressed with everyone. We'll see how they do out of their own element. I love a lot of the choreographers, but my favorites are travis, Sonya, and definitely tabitha and Napoleon. Did you know that Travis is starting his own dance company and has a show about it called all the right moves which is on oxygen and may or may not have already started? I will definitely be watching and I told my mom I want to see the company if they come to new York.
What do you think of the new only a week time slot? I don't understand how they can dance and eliminate people in one episode.
Glad someoe else appreciates the beauty of this show and quality dance!

Lots of love,
Dawn

By Cory I meant Cole. I guess I'm mixing up glee and sytycd. Not good. I
This us why you should not pull all nighters for no good reason.
