SYTYCD Top 20 Take 2

After last weeks surprising results show where none of the dancers went home the pressure was on to hit it hard this week since 4 will be going home.  Without further ado, here is the breakdown of this incredible night of dance.

Ryan & Ricky (or should I say Rodderick?)-They danced a Mandy Moore jazz routine that called for some serious chemistry and sexual tension...and they definitely brought it.  Ryan had the sexy market cornered for sure and they both embraced the character.  The routine was full of power and hard hitting movements that made this the perfect way to kick off the show.

Caitlynn & Mitchell-They danced a drama filled contemporary routine that was full of pain and turmoil.  Both dancers have absolutely incredible technique but I couldn't take my eyes off of Caitlynn.  I always try to watch the pieces as a whole but this time I was just drawn to Caitlynn.  Let's hope this couple doesn't suffer another punch at the results show like Caitlynn took during that routine (no bleeding please).

Missy & Wadi-They danced a cha cha and it was painful to watch at times.  Missy did great with it...she could have had a little more hip action but overall very impressive.  Wadi on the other hand...this was so not his cup of tea.  I honestly don't think that there was one part of the routine where he excelled, other then lifts.  I know this isn't his style but if he wants to have any shot at winning this, or even staying around for a few more weeks, he HAS to improve substantially on EVERY aspect!

Iveta & Nick-The danced a Bollywood routine, which was good but not the best I've seen.  They did keep their energy up the whole way through and they have great chemistry together.  However, at times they seemed a bit out of sync and their movements didn't always match one another.  Overall it was good but not great.

Miranda & Robert-They danced an unusual NappyTabs routine and absolutely killed it, especially Miranda.  She seriously impressed me this week!  They both have great musicality and the routine was very hard-hitting yet still sharp and clean.  I hope these two don't find them in the bottom three again this week.

Clarice & Jess-They danced a contemporary routine that left a little to be desired.  They were each beautiful when dancing on their own but it was a different story when they came together.  They're missing the chemistry that they so desperately need so any dancing they did together felt a little awkward.  Their fate is up in the air this week.

Jordan & Tadd-They danced a beautiful Viennese Waltz....I really don't think there is anything bad I can say about it.  Tadd was such a surprise with the amount of grace he had and how gentle he was.  I will be shocked if they end up in the bottom three because this was just an absolutely gorgeous piece.

Melanie & Marko-They danced a really fun jazz number and honestly they are such a great pair that I expect great things from them...and they delivered.  They have a great trust and chemistry between them that made their personalities shine.  I think it's a safe bet to say that Melanie is an early favorite for many of us!

Sasha & Alexander-They danced a heart-wrenching NappyTabs routine and did it beautifully.  The dancing was impeccable but it was the emotion of it all that carried through the it should be.

Ashley & Chris-They danced an innovative broadway number and Chris was an absolute superstar!  The control, power, and precision he delivered was amazing.  Ashley was good but I felt like she wasn't fully embracing the character which made the piece suffer on her end.

So what do you guys think?  Who should stay and who should go?
