SYTYCD: Kupona and Kayla's "Addiction" routine

I have been watching "So You Think You Can Dance" religiously this season, and I really think the dancers this year are some of the best ever. Last night's show was the top 12, so after tonight, we will know the top 10, who, like American Idol's top 10, will go on tour once the show is over. I don't want to rehash all of the performances, but I just wanted to mention the show today because of one specific routine from last night's show.

Let me preface this by saying that although I don't always like Mia Micheals' personality, her choreography is almost always amazing. She's a contemporary choreographer who always puts an interesting spin and a great story to her dances. Last night's routine that she choreographed for Kayla and Kupono was amazing! I think it is my favorite SYTYCD routine of all time... not that I've seen every episode mind you, but of the ones I've seen, this is the best. And it wasn't just the choreography. It was also the dancing.

Kupono just has something special. And yes, I know that on the message boards, he's been getting a lot of hate lately, but I for one see an amazing talent there. And Kayla... well, she's fantastic. The emotion that both of those dancers put into their performances takes my breath away. Their first routine last night was all about Kupono portraying 'addiction' and Kayla being the 'addict' who just can't seem to escape. How they were able to pull off every detail of that relationship with their bodies is beyond me, but they certainly did it, and it touched my heart. I have loved every routine they have done so far as a couple, and it will really make me sad tonight if they are sent home.

I just wanted to put that out there and let them know that regardless of what the results are tonight, you have my vote and you touched my heart. If there's any justice in this world, it will be Evan and Caitlin heading home tonight. I like their personalities, but it's a dance show and out of the 12 amazing dancers, they are consistently the weakest imo. We shall see.
