If the final two are not Brandon and Kayla, it will be a shame. They both deserve it and I'm sure no matter what happens, they will be able to pursue a career in dance. I'm not sure what the pull of Jeanine is but she is not better than Kayla by any stretch. She's not a bad dancer, but there must be some sort of massive group voting taking place to keep her in over dancers like Melissa and Janette. Evan is a cute dancer and I suppose his style makes people remember him, but he doesn't hold a candle to Brandon.

Just curious if anyone else found it interesting that Brandon is so insecure. I don't believe that he's faking, but I always find it amazing when someone is clearly so good at something but doesn't believe in themselves.
I completely agree with your thoughts.

I think the insecurity comes with youth, it's easy to forget how young they are because the show requires a high degree of maturity. I'm noticing now that I'm in my thirties I have a more realistic and positive view of myself, I see this in my friends as well. We believe it when we receive compliments, and realize what we are good at and what we are not.

True. Now that I'm in my 30s, I have a much more realistic outlook on what I can change about myself and what's there for the long haul. I guess it's easy to assume that just because someone is on television and seems so composed that they are comfortable in their own skin. Brandon really is amazing, though. I hope that he goes on to a professional dance career.

I have a feeling Brandon is going to have companies all around the country vying for him.

Whoa, that is some bum he's got. I think it's all muscle though, I didn't notice if he gained any weight.

Evan has a great career ahead of him no matter where he places in the show. I wish his fans would vote for the best dancer instead of their favorite in this case. I seem to remember something like this happening before and the dancer actually sort of encouraging his fans to vote for another dancer, I'm not clear on this though, it could have even been a different show, but it would be a good idea.
I could not agree more with everything you just said.....those are my thoughts exactly. Its not that evan isnt good, but when the other dancers are just sooo much better it is a bit embaressing to watch, because he has to know it. I think the judges need to do saves like American Idol started doing.

Yes, they need to save Jeanette, most would agree she deserves it.

I know! I still have not come to terms with her getting eliminated. I hope we see her again in the future at some point. Maybe she will be back in another season like how Travis, Pasha, and Anya did.

I think Ade could give him a run for his money.
