    Ditto the opening- that was the best opening number I can recall, at least post Robson. My memory fades as to what was opening in past seasons and what was not- either way this one was excellent.

    Haven't watched the whole episode yet, but the opening number was a lot of fun.

    The opening number was fantastic!

    I didn't like the Christopher Scott choreography with the light. I think this is the first time he's disappointed me as a choreographer or performer. :(

    I did love the Amy & FikShun number.

    How does this work? Is there a results show, or did I miss it?

    well that can't be
    - the results would have to come at the end of the show wouldn't they
    - how else would they rehearse for the actual show?

    They ALL rehearse, and yes, this is how it's done now - no drawn-out hour-long results show. It worked well last year.

    The combined results show is fantastic. One of the things that sets SYTYCD apart IMO.

    Agreed, I'm glad they made the change a couple seasons ago. Saves us from an hour of filler the next night.

    Were the blindfolded couple truly sightless? During practice, the blindfolds looked sheer... Seemed like an impossible dance with truly no sight...

    It's possible that they were "sightless", but doubtful - among other things, it would be extremely unsafe for people who weren't taught how to dance blind.

    After all of the couples dance, they announce which three men and which three women were in the bottom of the voting. Nigel can then ask any of them to do a 30-second solo (I doubt there will be any solos in the next episode, as there is barely enough time for the 10 duets); the judges then announce who gets eliminated.

    One reason the eliminations are done at the end is, the judges are supposed to take that night's duets (as well as any solo) into account when determining the eliminations.

    Yes, the key thing about this part of the competition is that the judges are deciding who goes and who stays, it's not a public vote (yet). This means the decision can be made during the show, essentially live.

    OK, was my TV station the only one to stick a car commercial 20 seconds into Amy and FikShun's dance? :mad:

    Okay wouldn't it make sense for all the couples to dance first and then do the results at the end and just omit the eliminated couple from the voting? Can't say I like the elimination first and then have two dancers possibly "mailing it in"..

    For those of you who missed the episode, the eliminations have changed: they now announce the bottom three men and women at the start of the show, then the judges save one of each (there will be two saves each week, as opposed to Idol's "the save can be used only once in the entire season"), then the remaining four each do a 45-second "dance for your life" solo before one man and one woman are eliminated. However, the eliminated dancers still perform their scheduled duets (presumably even if both eliminated dancers are from the same couple).

    If I had to guess, I would say that the reason they do it this way is so they have a better idea of how much time remains in the show for the duets; they're not stuck with making some dancers do solos just to pad the time. It could also be that fans of the show wanted to see all of the dancers "dance for their lives", which is easier to control earlier than later.

    However, I don't think the eliminated dancers are "phoning it in" (although I didn't like how Nigel asked them (before the eliminations were announced) if any of them had a problem with dancing after being eliminated). In addition to having another dance to impress any choreographers (for future work) who might be watching, there's also the two "unannounced tour slots", and almost certainly they'll take into account who took being dancing after being eliminated seriously, although it probably won't weigh as heavily as "does this dancer specialize in something where we don't have anybody else of his sex but we do have somebody of the opposite sex who could be paired up in a duet?".
