I know Valerie is not the best dancer of the bunch, but I think that was a pretty solid hip hop routines. The Broadway was cute, too. She still has issues with graceful arm movement, but I'm not upset she's around. I don't know if I'm rooting for her, exactly (I think I'm rooting for Zach, although he has his weak spots as well) but I've had fun watching her.

Heck, I know how her fans must feel, because I was a fan of Evan, and I think he got the short end of the stick - as far as I can tell, the producers didn't want him in the finale but he got there anyway.

I have watched that Valerie & Twitch routine a half dozen times and I still love it.

I think Jessica's routines are going to take her out of the running for winner. I mean, it was always going to be Ricky, barring some sort of upset, but the choreography on Jessica's routines last night did her no favors. The disco was fun but not especially memorable, and that Ray Leeper jazz number was kind of awful.

I would have preferred Tanisha over Valerie in the final four. Valerie's just too cute and one-note for me, whereas Tanisha felt like a more fully matured dancer. Still, there's no one in the top four who I'm thinking "...them, really?" about, so I'm not too upset.

It was great to see some choreography from Philip Chbeeb. It definitely doesn't look like anything from the other choreographers.

I really enjoyed Valerie and Twitch. I also thought the ball routine with Jacque and Will was very smooth and interesting.

I have enjoyed this season, but there hasn't been anyone that I have felt super connected to. Although I think that is also due to the fact that there is one less episode a week now. Without that extra exposure I think it hurts how much people care about the dancers.

Philip Chbeeb's routine is my favourite of the season so far, by quite some way. It secured Zack as my personal winner. Zack also has awesome tap solos and I can't wait for him and Aaron next week.

I don't know why I don't connect with Ricky. He is obviously the best technician in the competition with personality to match... Maybe it's because he peaked too early; none of his routines in the live shows have struck me a much as his 'Skin and Bones' solo at the end not-Vegas week.

WildaBeast's routine was super cool, with some neat moves. Valerie acquitted herself well, but her movements just weren't quite as sharp, isolated or fast enough for me. I was impressed by her ability to exude sweetness and swag in equal measure.

So glad Jessica didn't get eliminated in her neon fluffy jazz boots and bunches - poor lass. (I actually thought that routine was kinda cool, once I got over the awful outfit.)

Nice that Casey and Jacque left on a high note. I liked the concept of Jacque's 'Bugle Boy' solo, it was a lot more cohesive than the contemporary solos which are 20 seconds of leaps or turns followed by emotion face.
