SYTYCD Spoilers

Many thanks to Vance at Tapeworthy for tipping me off as to this week's pairings, dance styles, and choreographers. Says he:

Adam Shankman is the third judge again.
Courtney and Mark - Viennese waltz (Jason Gilkison from SYTYCD Australia) and Jazz (Sonya Tayeh)
Katee and Joshua (Again?) - Contemporary (Tyce DiOrio) and Paso Doble (Jason Gilkison)
Chelsie and Twitch - Mambo (Tony and Melanie) and Hip Hop (Napoelon and Tabitha)

As I said on Vance's blog, I realized after last week that at least one pairing would have to be a repeat, since Joshua's danced with all three remaining women. (Coincidence? Or Josh being awesome and a good luck charm? No one he's danced with has ever been even at risk of elimination. Not bad.)

As for the dance styles...Chelsie and Twitch are probably the pair least suited to each other. Their mambo is going to be a challenge. That being said, I can see their hip-hop routine being their saving grace. I worry about the waltz being too boring for Courtney and Mark to make much headway, but their jazz could be a highlight. And Katee and Joshua's familiarity with each other should be of great help to them in the paso doble, and they've already proved themselves to be handy with the contemporary (though Tyce choreographing is kind of hit or miss).

And if I can't have Lil' C guest judge every week, Adam Shankman will do just fine.

Oh, and P.S.: I'm traveling on Thursday, so maybe so So You Think You Can Dance review this week. Maybe.
