So You Think You Can Dance Recap: Tides Are Turning, Bringing Winds of Change

As a reality TV recapper, it’s always easier to rage against the machine — They cut the wrong girl! We didn’t need a fourth judge! A pixie haircut does not equal the second coming of Melanie Moore! — than it is to tip your hat or raise your glass when positive changes take effect.

But for tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance recap, I’m going to take the road less traveled and celebrate a trio of fantastic developments:

* The introduction of new blood to the pool of choreographers. (They may not have cooked up my very favorite routines, but they definitely slapped an oar against the surface of the pool to fight the process of stagnation.)

* The very necessary course-correction to save the week’s eliminations till the end of the episode, rather than announcing them before the start of the night’s competitive routines.

* The introduction of contestant-squeezing, superlative-spewing Paula Abdul to the judges’ panel. No, I wouldn’t want her on the show every week, but there’s a certain charm to her je ne sais crazy.

But enough of my upbeat manifesto…let’s get to the results:

BOTTOM 6 (BASED ON VOTES FROM LAST WEEK)
