SYTYCD7 Top 9 - Boys Boys Boys

I've missed quite a few episodes of So You Think You Can Dance this month, and what do I come back to? Another show, another season of the "cute" boys outlasting the girls. So in other words, same ol', same ol'.

There are only three girls left in the competition, and I feel like no matter what, the judges are going to get rid of a guy, unless the bottom 3 consists of all girls (it shouldn't because Ashley, especially, was fantastic). Which is unfortunate because Melinda's gotta go. Sorry, but her salsa was lackluster and clunky and not at all sexy, and her tap solo was a bore (not a tap fan). If they do have a guy in the bottom 3, it's probably going to be curtains for that guy. Robert better hope he doesn't land there again because the judges will use the you've been in the bottom twice in a row now excuse to boot him. He danced well enough to stay. But will his fans vote more than they did last week when he landed in the bottom? Kent could also be a candidate to go, but judging from the high-pitched squeals that emanated from the pit, I'm thinking he's got fans. The judges were harsh on Billy as well, but he's not going to hit the bottom anytime soon.

Definitely not hitting the bottom anytime soon is Alex, who SLAYED an awesome hip-hop routine with Twitch, choreographed by Tabitha & Napoleon. The ballet dancer holding his own with Twitch? That's impressive. And credit also to NappyTabs for designing a well-balanced routine for the two guys and to Twitch for partnering in a way that let Alex shine. I did think it was funny that the show was making such a big deal about having two guys dance with each other when it's been done for years in the finales (have a little Tranji).
