I was a little surprised by James leaving. But, I disagree, from a pure performance view, he deserved the marks he got. I assume the judges were already aware, so bravo to them for not taking his personal life in to account when judging the dance. I really am saddened by his families loss and then having to deal with being sent home. But, as my wife said, maybe it is better for his family. While he will be back next week, he won't have to spend a whole week practicing. He can spend time with his family. If I wanted to dispute judges scores, I would disagree with the 10s Ally got for her Charleston and 9s that Hannah got for her Contemporary. While I liked Aly's dance, there were a few moments that she and Sasha were out of sync. It was noticeable. Meanwhile, I though Hannah's Contemporary was beautiful and I am struggling to find what the judges docked her for. I thought she deserved 10s. Going in to the finals, I am not sure who will win. On pure dancing, I think Ally or Kel are probably the favorites, but we know this is a popularity contest as well and Ally has been in the bottom two a number of times. She obviously doesn't not have a great fan base. I am guess Kel will win over Lauren. Hannah is 3rd and Ally is 4th.
