I think that we all agree that there is a certain amount of "shaping" by the judges on this and any other performance reality show but does anyone have any real qualms about the makeup of the Final Four this season? Melanie and Marko have been consistently excellent. Tadd's growth curve for a, for once, truly untrained B-boy has been amazing and while Sasha for whatever reason, seems to rub some the wrong way, she has been a pretty compelling figure. So the question is: if not these four, then who? Maybe Caitlyn for Sasha? Maybe but Caitlyn did, at times, reveal some immaturity entirely consistent with her young age so who else? IMHO, for this season, these are the finalists who should be there. About Melanie, from her first audition in Atlanta I believe, there was something about her that caught my attention. She is clearly a superior dancer but I also think that she's pretty damn cute and I'm a sucker for a well worn pixie hairstyle. Like others, every time she was onstage in a group number, my eyes found her and stayed on her. She may not have a typical dancer's body but those muscular legs allow her to do things that few have been able to this year. Her last two solos really illustrated that. It will come down to her and Marko and I feel that she should and will win but if she doesn't, you will see a thunderous, standing tribute from the judges and the audience that will be memorable. It will be similar the one that Kayla got when, after she was eliminated, she and Kapuno performed Mia's Addiction number again. If you watch the clip, the director switched to the wide camera at the rear of the set and the house lights turned up so your could see the audience, almost as one, up on its feet applauding wildly for her.
