    I'm surprised by how popular Aaron is. He is definitely an amazing tapper, but I thought he was one of the weakest guys in all other areas of the show. Oh well.

    Yebbut... he looked like a man among boys.
    IMO.

    I'm going from memory here so might be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure Malece's partner Alan (the ballroom dancer) was missing, as was the guy who dropped out very early on due to an injury. Can't remember his name-- the extremely short animator.

    This. He's a very mature dancer. Although Fik Shun did manage to get through the more emotional dances, he doesn't have the same kind of emotional gravity that a more mature dancer/person has.

    I loved the tap duo Aaron did on the finale. I loved the way they told a story.

    Very disappointing season and finale. I so wanted Jasmine and Aaron to win. I've watched Jasmine and Marko's entertaining Blurred Lines routine on YouTube a dozen times and never tire of it. Sorry, I don't remember any of Fikshun's work other than thinking a couple of times that he is too small to be believable as a male lead and his partner dancing seemed awkward. Amy's performances were boring to me.

    There's no doubt about that. To me he seemed not terribly agile, but tall and strong so that the women could use him to structure for all their amazing dancing.

    I get that sometimes the male lead is mostly there for that kind of structure, but IMO Aaron wasn't very graceful about it.

    Anyway, still a fun season!

    I appreciated his work in the group numbers when he was performing with smaller dancers. He's not a small guy, and it's not a trivial task to match smaller dancers and not screw up the timing of everything.

    Other male dancers (Paul) were better, but I wouldn't have put Aaron as one of the weakest.

    As usual, though, it would be interesting if the show was structured like Project Runway and the judges were the only ones in charge of which dancer went home.

    Way back when, Bravo did a dance show along those lines, but it only lasted one season. It's a pity it didn't last. (IMHO, Bravo's Make Me a Supermodel was more interesting than America's Next Top Model, too.)

    Yes - and then but the weird thing was the top 10 men routine with the sand - there were 10 men - I was trying to figure out if they put in a sub - - - or something...

    which i have to say is probably the best routine of the season for me. Sand that is.

    I think they slipped that in as a previously recorded one. I don't think they mentioned it on air, but it was a little suspicious. (Especially suspicious is I'm pretty sure I saw Jade in it doing moves he wouldn't be doing shortly after surgery.)

    Gotta be honest, my favorite routine of the year was the top 20 intro routine that they also played as a taped number.

    Did anybody else see Travis, Napoleon and Tabitha, Sonja Tayeh, and Mandy Moore (and the dance number) on the Emmys last night?

    Yes- Travis looked like a bundle of nerves.

    I did like that they stood them all up there, though.

    I saw Melanie in there as well. It was great that they brought the choreography into the prime time show.
