Solo and Overall Rankings: Idol Thoughts Endorsement Goes To...

So, I've ranked the couples (click here), and now its time to look at the solos...

1. Danny
For the past few weeks now Danny has really stepped his solos up a notch, and as he bounded around the stage like a man with an incredible amount of unleashed passion, Danny literally took my breath away tonight. He is truly sensational.

2. Neil
Just a few weeks ago Neil's solos consisted of high jumps and crazy acrobatics -- impressive, certainly, but lacking a bit in the artistry department. No longer! He felt the music tonight, giving easily his best solo performance of the season.

3. Sabra
I feel like I've seen this solo from Sabra every week now for the past several weeks. That doesn't mean it's not good -- I'm just kind of over it.

4. Lacey
Even though this was better than her last two solos (which were painful), the girl just can't give good solo. Hey, she can't be good at everything!

And, finally, the overall rankings from last night:

1. Danny
2. Sabra
3. Lacey
4. Neil

Thus, based on last night's performances, as well as a result of taking a look at all of the previous week's rankings, Idol Thoughts is ready to make an endorsement for this year's So You Think You Can Dance champion. Please know, I have gone back and forth on this all week, and even during last night's show I had not yet figured out who I want to win.

But I know now.

Idol Thoughts endorses Danny Tidwell as the winner of this year's So You Think You Can Dance.

Yes, a couple of weeks ago I said Lacey should win. And yes, Neil is drop dead gorgeous and has improved tremendously. And yes, Sabra is nothing short of sensational in everything that she does.

But Danny is transcendent. He's graceful, he's nuanced, he's an artist, and he's hot! Sure, he doesn't have a personality perfectly suited for reality television -- who cares? To me he is hands down the best dancer on the show, and as such deserves to win.

Will he? That I'm not sure. Check back in a little bit for my prediction of who will actually take home the prize.

Finale fever is in the air!!

Gov.Buddy Roemer (R-LA) said, this is a girl's year and Idol Thoughts, you know it too. Either Sabra or Lacey will take the SYTYCD crown tonight ending 2 years of the good ole boy network you watch.

nancy--dial idol has so few users for sytycd that it is far from accurate. i don't believe it's gotten a single prediction right this season.
