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.
* 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)
Jade* (who’d already withdrawn at the top of the show due to a torn meniscus)/>/>/>/>/>/>
SENT IMMEDIATELY TO SAFETY
DANCING FOR THEIR LIVES
All three at-risk ladies/>
ELIMINATED AT THE END OF THE SHOW
Jasmine M (even though it should’ve been Alexis)/>
And now, let’s break down this week’s routines. I’ll be back overnight to flesh things out with full performance reviews and photos for everyone!

Again, I’ll update this recap with more details overnight, but until then let me turn things over to you. What did you think of this week’s SYTYCD? Who was best in show?
