Usually, by this point in the season of "So You Think You Can Dance," there are at least two very clear favorites and then a few dark-horse dancers waiting in the wings. As far as I can remember, past winners Nick Lazzarini, Joshua Allen, Benji Schwimmer and Sabra Johnson won our hearts immediately with their surprisingly wide range of talent and adorable personalities. But when the top 10 performed this week, I was still absolutely stumped about who will win the title of "America's Favorite Dancer."
On the other hand, I can't be the only one who knew Hawaiian heartthrob Kupono Aweau and perky cutie Randi Evans were not long for this competition. Kupono's looks aside, he just doesn't match up in physical strength (witness the way he struggled through his lifts in this week's paso doble), and as Nigel Lythgoe said a few weeks ago, he »

The stakes got higher on this week's 'So You Think You Can Dance,' which featured the very talented top 10 dancers. The voters alone decided who went home (no more saves by the judges) and the axe fell on Randi Evans and Kupono Aweau. Randi and Kupono danced a paso doble together this week, which the judges feltlacked passion and strength. The other male and female dancer in danger were Melissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi. ...Read more

During her time on So You Think You Can Dance Randi Evans wowed the judges with her power, perseverance, her booty, and bubbly personality. Though she became the 6th girl to be eliminated from the competition last night, you couldn't tell that from the her positive attitude and audible smile. This afternoon, Randi took the time to chat with Sytycd press about her time on the show, her dance challenged Hubby, and what dance she hopes you'll be seeing her perform on tour. »

Full disclosure: I'm a rabid So You Think You Can Dance fan. Every summer for the past four years the talent on display on this show simply blows every other reality competition out of the water. So much so, that one can even overlook the nagging, hetero-cheerleading presence of producer Nigel Lythgoe on the judging panel.
Nigel's peculiar obsession with the masculinity of male dancers aside, Sytycd raises your standards when it comes to dance. I mean, once you start watching this show it is awfully hard to sit through an episode of Dancing with the Stars.
