    The show is over. I watched it. When I vote it says I have to wait for the show to end. WTF?

    Kat has to stop calling dance “stuff”. Every time she says “that’s really good stuff” I cringe and I’m embarrassed for the quality of the show. She should have a more developed vocabulary.

    Love SYTYCD. Not at all the normal demographic but watch faithfully. Wish they would call them “pieces” rather than routines which makes them sound a bit like cheer leading things. I’m a fellow alum of Interlochen’s dance dept. like Mia. She is so fantastico. I am a great admirer. I constantly recommend her to my friend Janet who also went to IAA and is artistic dir. of Graham Co. Cheers.

    I am very unhappy that Cole was voted out last night. I think Cyrus should have been voted out instead. Cole is an excellent dancer and can dance all the different styles very well. Cyrus has a hard time with the other styles and can only do his style well in my opinion. When the judges critique the dancers they talk about their dancing, what they did wrong, how to improve, etc, they talk about their DANCING but with Cyrus they just say I love you, you did great, no comments about the dancing. I do not think this is right, if you are going to saying something bad about the other talented dancers then say something about his lack of dancing as well. It is called So You Think You Can Dance afterall. They make you go through a very tough series of dances to get on the show and cut some amazing dancers and they let people like Cyrus in because of this personality and cut people who frankly are better dancers than him. It is a dancing competition, America’s favorite dancer, not favorite personality. I just don’t think its right, Cyrus seems like a nice guy, but he just is not as good as some of these dancers especially Cole.

    I thought the way Nigel told Cyrus he wasnt going to vote for him was soooooo cruel and unnecessary !!
    Cyrus just danced his heart out and that WASN’T the time to say that.
    Brought the excitement way down for the end of the show.
    It’s not about his vote, it’s Americas vote

    I was also VERY surprised that Cole was sent home. He was my ABSOLUTE favorite! And the pasa doble’ (not exactly sure how to spell that) what’s the best I’ve seen on that show! I hope that being on SYTYCD will get him recognized.

    I think Cyrus and keyon r both great in what they do. I am very upset with Nigel’s comment ” I’m not going to vote for u tnght Cyrus, I’m voting for keyon” I think it was very very cold, a little confusing and heartbreaking exspecially since Nigel has been supporting Cyrus throughout the season. I’ve been watching this show forever and I love Nigel but tnght I think he was very cold and rude! Honestly I hope all of America vote for Cyrus and may the best man win. On a happier note, loved the twitch and Cyrus routine and I’ve been following Twitch since he’s been on the show. Good luck Cyrus! When u dance you give me goosebumps !!!! Very courageous.

    i just want to comment to say that i completely agree with you sytycdfan, they cut him way too much slack. He is a GOOD dancer but not a versatile one and definitely not as good as Cole. It saddens me that they’d criticize the rest for not being as strong when outside their genre, and yet when it comes to cyrus its this: (to paraphrase) “you were amazing! were the lines all correct? no, but this is outside your genre and i still enjoyed it, your charisma! your passion!…” etc
    Its definitely not fair. I’m glad that Nigel is on his right mind with supporting chehon over cyrus, nevertheless that is only one vote out of millions, and i’m afraid america will vote for cyrus because of his “hard work”, as if the other dancers don’t work that hard.
    Again, they cut him way too much slack.

    I’m sure cole would have been in the finale if it weren’t for the retarded voting system; the Mia Michaels Bull routine he did was phenomenal but there was no chance for america to vote for it because the voting was done the week before, meaning that entire performance episode was useless :s

    I was so disappointed to see Keyon win tonight. I feel Cyrus was truly America’s favorite dancer. Nigel had even said so himself however, after Nigel made the comment about not voting for Cyrus because he hadn’t had formal training he ruined it for Cyrus. Nigel should not have said such a thing & he did Cyrus a disservice. If Nigel had kept quiet, Cyrus could have won. The show is for America’s favorite dancer, not the most trained dancer. Nigel, you owe Curus…
