Songs I Need to See Employed by SYTYCD Choreographers This Season, In Order of Likelihood
Song: "Bad Girls," M.I.A.
Ideal Scenario: Top 8 Girls group routine, choreographed by all-star Twitch
Likelier Scenario: M.I.A. = Bollywood still, right?
Song: "Skyscraper," Demi Lovato
Ideal Scenario: Yearning contemporary solo
Likelier Scenario: Yearning Stacey Tookey routine
Song: "Boyfriend," Justin Bieber
Ideal Scenario: Boy-Boy pair routine by returning choreographer Brian Friedman
Likelier Scenario: Boy-Girl pair routine by Tyce Diorio

Ideal Scenario: Mandy Moore beaks out of her '80s milieu and devises a fun pair routine about, say, an OKCupid date
Likelier Scenario: Tabitha and Napoleon make "real" hip-hop fans even angrier than they already are
Song: "Let's Have a Kiki," Scissor Sisters
Ideal Scenario: Gayest group routine ever, by Travis Wall
Likelier Scenario: Jean-Marc Genereaux and France devise one of those delightfully dissonant cha-chas set to modern music
Song: "Beez in the Trap," Nicki Minaj
Ideal Scenario: Lil C' devises the show's first girl-girl krump routine
Likelier Scenario: NapTab pair routine somehow involving all-star Sasha
Song: "212," Azealia Banks
Ideal Scenario: Dave Scott choreographs his annual one routine and, as usual, blows the doors off the place
Likelier Scenario: Christopher Scott uses the song to assert his position as the show's preeminent hip-hop choreographer with the surname "Scott"
Song: "Girl Gone Wild," Madonna
Ideal Scenario: Something weird and insect-like from Sonya Tayeh
Likelier Scenario: "GGW" gets scrapped for a smooth waltz set to "Masterpiece"
Song: "National Anthem," Lana Del Rey
Ideal Scenario: Not sure, since "dreamily swaying" isn't a dance style yet
Likelier Scenario: Travis Wall helps the show strike its first blow for a national dance-based conversation about the political process
