It was kind of dissappointing that Yuz was eliminated last nite . As a matter of fact he is the best one as compare to Dennis and Alam . Maybe Dennis and Alam can help 8TV to make more money through the votes as compare to Yuz . In the eyes of audience and judges , I still fell Yuz is the best and deserve to be in top 4 .
As for Nor , I will accept that she is eliminated as it is a tough decision as all the 3 girls perform great last nite .
As we are getting near to grand final , I felt Dennis chance of winning is high as he seems to have the most supporter as compare to Sue . Base on popularity as as what the judges said last nite , Dennis is the most likeable one as he has many fans.
Sad to say , we are not seing the best competing with the best but instead we are seeing supporter competing with supporter .
The show is no longer seen as an interesting one with the result of the top 4 . The good dancers have been eliminated .
There's no doubt that Yuz is great. I have been saying that all along but some people think he is short. Cannot be dancer. What can be done? But obviously Yuz doesnot have the support base.
I think that the winner will have to do a lot of shows, advertising promos, and will need to know how to talk...not only purely dance. You can see for yourself that Dennis promotes himself well when Belinda asked him why people should vote for him. His answer really amazes me: he puts the question back to the audience: why shouldn't they vote for me? And then puts it humbly that he was joking only...and laugh. That was intelligent of him and if I am representing Nike, I will hire him as Nike Ambassador right away. He uses the time to help promote Nike too and he was the only one to do that! I know he didnot do it intentionally but that was smart. Rather than pure self-cherishing promoting ownself.

Rentak Sejuta's Weekly Review: Episode 12 ¨C Top 6
The competition bounced back from a lull of 2 weeks with probably the best ever show of the season, thanks to 6 amazing personalities who totally came back with a vengeance and delivered their best ever performances.
It was truly a night to remember with top notch performances from every single contestant. Even the crowds returned in throngs to fill up the venue to the brim despite the late evening thunderstorm. The atmosphere was simply feverish inside Ruums as the audience raised the temperature with their enthusiasm and exuberance. There may have been only six semi finalist, but the venue looked as if the entire top 20 were in the line up, with many fans of the remaining contestants jostling for the best vantage points in an already packed place.
The judges had no say on who would be allowed to continue to the next round as that task was left to the voting audience to decide entirely on their own this week. And the overall positive comments by the judges for each contestant did not make the task easier for the voters, either. Every single contestant delivered this week, with outstanding performances, which made selection even harder than ever before.
First up were Sue & Alam, who mesmerized us with a powerful, minimalist and meaningful contemporary routine which rendered their physical contrast insignificant. It was a very emotive and engaging performance that totally kept our eyeballs glued to it, even without any lifts or stunts. It's simply amazing that they managed to make the emotional connection in just 3 days. Pure class.
Bedazzling!!! Peter Ong seems to have the knack in bringing out the wild side of any dancer in his care, with his risqu¨¦ choreography and apt guidance. Brancy & Dennis were a delight to watch as they turned their cha cha routine into a polished, hot and steamy affair. It was believable and absolutely fun.
It was wonderful that Noor & Yuz did not disappoint either, as they churned out a technically strong and sexy performance that was controlled yet full of vigour, and with a big dose of sexiness that never went overboard.
All the duets were inspiring and were more than worthy of merit, but the singles was were where the contestants totally thrilled the audience and really stepped up their game, to show us that they are the ones who really deserved to be there in the top 6, irregardless of what a select few were saying. Not a single one of them could be faulted this week as they collectively delivered the very best of the entire season in just one night, with their amazing solo performances.
Sue delivered a beautiful, elegant and absolutely delicious performance which was so precise & composed; it completely wowed the audience in Ruums. Sheer poetry in motion.
I am just wondering whether Alam is a better lyrical contemporary dancer than a breaker? His break moves are impressive but his ability as an emotive storyteller is what separates him from the many more formally trained dancers of that style. The boy is a true purist, uncorrupted by academia. He doesn¡¯t even know his real forte. Which is his ability to draw his audience into his very own world that he creates on stage and around him.
This is the first time that the flamboyant and charismatic Dennis has actually told us a wonderful story in his dance routine. And that story is that Dennis can dance with his body, mind and soul. Heartfelt!!!
I have always regarded Brancy as the toughest competitor in this show and she always manages to deliver her routines effectively and efficiently, but all Brancy did this time, and for the first time too, was simply dance with her heart. It was a touching and perfectly executed performance that brought tears to many eyes in the audience.
Yuz is simply an accomplished dancer who has never failed to deliver. His vibrant fusion of Indian & Malay contemporary was masterful and technically flawless, and clearly demonstrated that he was more than entitled to the top prize. He may have not been destined to win this competition but his destiny does not at all end here. There are far greater things to come for him. His passion for the arts will deliver him his nirvana.
It was an intense, sophisticated and soulful performance by the versatile Noor, which revealed that she could possibly find success as a choreographer, as well as a dancer. She may be out of the competition, but the dancer in her will never leave her soul.
For the first time in weeks, every single one of the semi finalists, discarded all of their misgivings and showed us their inner dancers. They were no longer competing but were actually dancing. That alone bodes well for the dance industry in Malaysia when competitors start grasping at their passion instead of the prize. Over the 2 months, we have seen many amazing things happen, to so many talented individuals. Hopefully they will take all the lessons learned and will apply and amplify it to their craft, and continue to develop themselves to the best that they can be.
Two excellent dancers left the show this week, but I am certain that their loss will not extinguish their smoldering flame inside. In fact I believe it will simply ignite into an inferno in time. Good luck to them both.
And good luck also to the final four. All of you deserve to be there on your own merit. Please give us a show to remember. Everyone of you stand a chance to be the winner, but you are all winners in my book.
As for who I think will win this, many may be thinking of the obvious to be the winner but I think Malaysia might just give us one last surprise. And it will be the one who captivates us the most at the finale.
