Last night's results episode of "So You Think You Can Dance" marked the start of boring Thursday night episodes. The decision has been made, and we're just waiting through an hour of programming to get there. Somehow "American Idol" makes me feel vaguely excited for this hour, but "SYTYCD," not as much. That being said, there was scandal!
Evidently, Wednesday night's show stirred up a whole heap of controversy, so last night had to begin with apologies (well, one apology and one half apology). First, Mia Michaels apologized for the jacket she wore the night before — a fashionable take on a military jacket, which apparently upset some members and families of US Marines.
Next, Nigel spoke about anger caused by Wade Robson's anti-war routine that all the dancers performed for their solos. Apparently the show was inundated with letters calling the show and dancers "unpatriotic" and against supporting our troops. Nigel apologized to anyone who felt disrespected/offended by the dance, but made the valid (to me at least) point that art should be able to make a statement, and at the end of the day no one is "pro war."
After Mika "sang" (okay, lip synced) in too-tight electric blue jeans, the dancers were narrowed down to the bottom four: Kameron, Dominic, Jaimie and Lauren. Those four then performed solos that didn't actually mean anything. Maybe they weren't giving it their all because the decision was already made, but only Dominic wowed me with his solo. As for eliminations: We said goodbye to Kameron & Jaimie. I can't say that I mind losing either of these two, but I was super surprised that Lauren was even in the bottom four. Maybe I'll have to start voting to keep my girl around.

So what do you think? Thoughts about last night's episode? Were you upset by Wednesday's solo routine? Are you sad to see Kameron and Jaimie go?
