Last night, the competition rounds of So You Think You Can Dance season 11 came to a close as the top 4 finalists (Ricky, Valerie, Zack, & Jessica) took the stage one last time before next week’s championship finale.
Let’s start with one of the most emotional opening group numbers of the season set to one of the cheesiest songs in history.
Favorites from the very beginning, Valerie & Ricky lit up the dance floor with their African Jazz routine. It was exuberant and seemed to be something new for the both of them.
Two tap dancers have never made it to the finals together and if either Valerie or Zack wins next week, it will be So You Think You Can Dance history. Here they are performing a contemporary routine that demonstrates the range these two have.
The winner of this season is automatically cast in a role in the Broadway musical, On the Town. If either Jessica or Zack win, this Broadway routine will surely set them up for success.
Jessica and Ricky performed a Jazz routine that was equal parts funky and fun. While the chemistry needed for a superb performance came up short, there is no denying the individual talent they possess.
Ricky and Zack come from very different backgrounds yet can impressively keep up with each other outside of their respective genres. At this rate, being crowned champion is a toss up.
Who do you think will be crowned this season’s champion of So You Think You Can Dance. Tune in next week for the finale to find out.
