On Thursday night, Sasha Mallory and Alexander Fost are going to find themselves in new territory on “So You Think You Can Dance” if they stick around — individual competitors. The two have worked as a team for the entire show thus far, and they have also run the gamut of criticism when it comes to the judges.
After a tough week courtesy of Nigel Lythgoe last time, we are pleased to say now that the two received plenty of positive feedback for a show that contained a rigid paso doble and more free-spirited routine later in the show. While Sasha was stellar as always, the latter dance Wednesday may have been the first time that Alexander truly came into his own as a dancer — showing that he does belong up with Marko Germar, Tadd Gadduang, and the other strong male dancers.
The other good news that came out of this evening of performances is that it looks yet again likely that Sasha will be declared safe. She received much better feedback this week, and even last time she was not in the bottom three thanks to fans of both her and Adam Lambert. Pending a major shocker, expect Ryan Ramirez and Ricky Jaime to be hitting the road Thursday night.
Are you happy for Sasha, and who do you think is going home?
