That's Life with Alexander and Sasha: SYTYCD
Here are Sasha and Alexander dancing to Aretha Franklin's "That's Life" during the Top 12 episode of So You Think You Can Dance on Fox. I agreed with the judges on their performance. Beautiful. Sasha nailed it and Alexander was fantastic. So, I was surprised to see the pair in the bottom three.
Unfortunately Alexander was voted off during results Thursday night and so was Ryan, who the judges said seemed depressed lately. She did seem to be putting that light that shone so brightly at the beginning of the season under a bushel. I could tell, during Wednesday night's competition, however, that the judges were gearing up to eliminate her from the show if she and Ricky ended up in the bottom three.
This year's top 10 is very talented, and the season has been brutal due to the number of gifted dancers. I'm rooting for Sasha and Melanie. I think they shine the most, but really, I like everyone in the Top 10. Dancers seem to have much better attitudes than singers, such as the ones who audition for American Idol, and that's probably a good reason to buy a "Dance 4 Your Life" T-shirts that Nigel Lythgoe had on last night. I guess it's the endorphins.
