'So You Think You Can Dance' season 16: Bailey Munoz's triple performance treat sees fans declare him the winner already
'So You Think You Can Dance' season 16 returned on Monday night for a brand new episode, featuring the Top 6 contestants. This week, we saw the Top 6 contestants, battle it out against each other in different rounds and routines hoping to get one step closer to the finale, but sadly, only four could get through, which meant two other contestants were eliminated. After the contestants were done with their performances, votes from last week were tallied, and the four contestants with the highest votes made it through to the finale. This week, the judges didn't choose to save anyone, as they agreed with the votes.
The final four contestants are none other than Gino Cosculluela, Bailey Munoz, Sophie Pittman, and Mariah Russell. The contestants who were eliminated were Ezra Sosa and Madison Jordan. After the finale Top 4 were revealed, in no time fans started to speculate about who they think should be the winner this season, and while fans revealed they either want Gino or Mariah to win this season, most of the fans were rooting for one contestant and that was none other than Munoz. Munoz is not just a fan favorite, but also the judges' favorite, mainly Nigel Lythgoe's. He had three performances on Monday night, one a group routine, one with All-Star Koine Iwasaki, and the third with Russell.
Koine and Munoz did a Broadway routine as the first performance of the night. The judges loved their performance and showered the duo with a lot of positive comments. Nigel went to say that it looked as if Munoz had been doing ballet for around 30 years, and Mary Murphy revealed that she thinks he is the entertainer of the show.
Mariah's and Munoz's Jazz routine garnered even more appreciation. D-Trix after watching the performance shared that Munoz is like the Filipino version of Magic Mike and Nigel said, "You are the most sensational couple.” And for the final men's group performance, they performed a dark emotional piece, that had Laurieann say, that the three men including Munoz “have what it takes to see your dreams manifest. I’m not gonna lie, if I had the choice, I’d send all three guys to the final four along with Mariah, even as great as Madison and Sophie are at what they do too."
Based on Monday night's performance, fans cannot help but gush over Munoz who is one amongst the frontrunners this season. Most of them shared how they think he should be the winner this season. Taking to Twitter, a fan said, "Seems like Bailey has a lot of momentum as #SYTYCD moves closer to crowning a winner this season." Adding to that another fan said,"I already see Bailey as a winner. His versatility and growth is unmatched. @DANCEonFOX."
"Petition to go ahead and name mariah and bailey the winners of this season... #SYTYCD," wrote another fan. While another said, "JESUS, Bailey!! We have a winner! #SYTYCD." We will get to see who gets crowned the winner of this season on September 16.
