I will miss Mark and Chelsea both so much. I wish they could have just had a six-way finale (with Will instead of Twitch) haha. But I think we're still in for a good show. I think my hopes are squarely on Joshua now. I think he has been the best technical/personality combination of the ones who are left and I would love to see him win. Twitch, though I like him personally, is the only one I think may not be up to a big finale show. I mean, look at his mambo. What if he gets another dance like that? Who are you rooting for now?

i was soo rooting for katee and twitch. i was a latecomer to the show this season but i did see the auditions and i loved twitch. i mean i honestly liked joshua but i thought courtney had really no reason to be up there. thats just me though. its the first time i've really been wrong about a winner since chris daughtry lost american idol all those years ago. well i guess all i can say is that all those dancers really have a good amount of opportunities ahead of them. good for them. as for joshua, congrats to that guy and to katee too. it was a good competition from what i saw.

Yeah, I kind of felt like the judges, that once they hit that top six and if you add in Will, any of them could have won. I don't think Courtney expected to be in the top four and she did take the loss very graciously - good for her. I think Will, Mark, Chelsea, Twitch, and Katee are all "daughtry's" - they'll have brilliant careers despite this loss.

I think that this season has been great. The dancers are all great and it is going to be hard to pick a winner. I think that the dances have gotten really hard. They are adding alot of different dances and really stretching what they can do. I do agree that Twitch is probably the weakest that is left but some of the dances he has done have been great. I think of the one left my favorite is Joshua. I know they keep saying that he hasn't had any professional training but I remember him saying that he did take ballet when he was younger but either way he is so talented. I am looking forward to what they make them do next week. I think all of the top 6 have a great future ahead of them.

Yeah, I agree. I've never seen the judges make such a point to tell the top 6 that any of them could win and none of them should feel bad, but I felt the same way. They are all great. This season has been memorable because of the new dances that they've added. I've also noticed though that none of the dancers really stood out in the personality department the way Benji and Dominic did. Joshua probably the most in my opinion. I know Twitch had those glasses and all, but I just found that annoying.

I like Twitch, and yet I don't. I don't know what it is. I liked him with Kherington, but since then, there's just something that's bothering me. I don't know if it's the Twitch/Superman T-shirts or lack of technical ability, or what. I really liked Mark and his quirkiness and his dancing and was sorry to see him go. I wasn't that sorry to see Chelsea go though. In her solos it looked like she was just kind of phoning it in. There was no fire there, like what we've seen lately from Courtney. I'm in love with Katee and Joshua right now. I can't believe Joshua has had no real training. He's pulling off these dances and making it look effortless. (And they finally let him take off his shirt, lol, after he said that Will and Twitch had gotten to take off theirs. That was an awesome Paso doble) And Katee is just an amazing dancer. I would personally be thrilled if either of them won. I do wish that SYTYCD did more follow up with the dancers after they win though. Aside from guest choreography appearances, we don't really get to find out much about what they're doing. Where's Benji? Where's Sabra? Where's...that person who won the first season? lol. I'd love to know how their careers are progressing after they win, without having to stalk them on the internet to get some information.

I have felt like that about Twitch from the beginning. I like him alright, but there was always something too over the top or something for me. He's the only one who I would be disappointed if he wins. If I could swap him out for Will, I think we'd be in for a much better finale. I took a while to warm up to Courtney, but I have to admit, she's done a great job lately and I love her solos. Katee is a great performer, but I feel she's getting a little arrogant. In the first few shows, she seemed genuinely pleased at the good comments she was getting from the judges, but lately, maybe she's just exhausted, but she seems cold. But I could watch her and Joshua dance all day. Amen to the follow-ups. I would love to get the past season's, say, top six dancers on the finale and do a little follow-up. That would be so cool.

I thought Courtney was the weakest on the finale night. Maybe Chelsea would have been able to keep up the energy better - but I don't know. That was quite some night. Four very high energy dances. They were all sooooo tired by that last one. Joshua's still my favorite despite the fact that he and Courtney really fell down on the Jive. No retractions at all. But Katee was probably the most consistent dancer on the night. Never a noticeable flaw with her. The 'jidges' were sure lovin on Twitch though. He might win just for popularity alone. I thought they went really easy on him and Katee for that fox trot. Loved the Mia Michaels routine. Wish Courtney had got up on that lift, but other than that, pretty good from them all.

I am still so in love with Joshua and Katee right now. I absolutely love everything they do. Twitch...he's okay. He's still not my favorite. Joshua's got personality i spades and he's never had to resort to props (glasses, t-shirts & grills) to get attention. I hope it comes down to either him or Katee. If it does, I will be so thrilled. I didn't get to see the contemporary dance with Katee and Joshua. My husband chose that time to start talking at me. lol. Hopefully I'll find it on Youtube in a day or so.

I really really wanted Chelsie to win. I actually thought it will be Chelsie, Katee, Joshua and Mark in the finale.. I got two wrong there. I'm really sad that both Chelsie and Mark left. But among the four, I prefer either Courtney or Katee to win. But I think the guys have a very huge fan base. Twitch for one, is a shocker for me that he made it to the finale. That goes to show how unpredictable this season is, and how it really is America's FAVORITE dancer. But anyway, I'm excited for the finale. I think both Joshua and Twitch will get a hip hop routine. Now that will be one heck of a routine, looking forward to that.

I'm like you and thought Chelsie and Mark would be in the finale. I loved them both and would have loved to see more dances from them. Hip Hop is certainly most likely for the two guys. Then I guess they'll probably give the two girls a contemp huh? Ballroom's definitely out. Hey, maybe they could have the two guys do one of those russian dances like Nigel talked about after the Ballywood. That would be cool LOL.

Oh ho! did I call the Russian dance or what! I thought it was great and by far the most entertaining of the night. I thought Joshua killed it.

I am very disappointed that Twitch stayed instead of Mark. Mark was a much better dancer. More versatile and elegant. More funky. I want Joshua, Katee or Courtney to win. They are all amazing! Twitch is only good at hip hop. Has a woman ever won? I suppose I am rooting for Courtney.

I believe a woman has won only once, and I cant remember the name, but I think it was season two. I would like to see a girl win too, the boys have had had their fare share.

Actually, it was last season Sabra Johnson won. So, so far, they've had two boys and one girl win. I don't know if gender plays a role this year. Last year, there was a lot of talk about whether a girl could win or if there were just too many pubescent girls voting - but I haven't heard anything like that this year. I think Twitch came into the competition with a pretty big fan base. He was featured last year in the auditions but didn't make it when some of his buddies did. Then again, they followed his story through the auditions this year, so he has had more exposure than some of the others. Don't know if that can make a difference at this point but, if he wins over some of the obviously better all around dancers, that's why.

This is not my favorite season, by far. Season two and three, were so much more entertaining. However, I am surprised it was not Twitch that left. He obviously has a huge following. Chelsea i was a little surprised, but how do you choose, all three were great. I like Mark, he will definately not be without work, I hope. He was a great addition to the show, and I am glad he came as far as he did. I am still over all disappointed with the whole season this year.

Mark has an amazing personality and I really hope to see him in a movie somewhere soon. He is so much fun!
