I guess I never knew that piece was called "Fear" so the story makes a little more sense. Legacy's hands still bother me though. ..haha

For the person that said that the cancer routine didnt make it because it wasnt good without the story...well i think that that number was un forgetibul and that it should be nominated

The Addiction piece kills me. I have a running list of the top 100 SYTYCD routines of all time, and I have Addiction as #1. The more I see it, the more remarkable it is. The original performance is good, but the Encore performance the night of the finale was UNBELIEVABLE. Go back and watch it. Kayla is incredible.

Also, Mia Michel's "One" is one of my all-time favorites. The way she re-envisioned a song and choreography that we've seen hundreds of times is just genius.

The Legion dance made my cry then and again when I watched it. Could Shankman really have choreographed this?

I guess I'm always confused about the Emmy for choreography. I think they can give multiple awards and it seems like an INDIVIDUAL is nominated (for example Mia) rather than a specific work....? For example Mia is not nominated 3 times. I'm confused. Anyone know the rules?

I thought some of Sonja's stuff might make the list - Jakob/Ellenore/Tore My Heart, Top 7 group routine - maybe just too freaky though... haha

Stacey Tookey's one is wonderful!!! I'm excited for her.

I'm surprised none of Travis Wall's routines were nominated. I'm really happy about Stacey Tookey's Fear dance with Legacy and Kathryn being nominated. It was my favorite dance of season 6.

I'm for the Addiction routine!! I really thought Ade and Melissa's "cancer" routine would have been nominated!

Rickey, how awesome of you to post these. I was so hoping I could find a link to watch them!!!

There were other dance segments in Shankman's award show that seemed very much his Broadway style of choreography - different than the video above. I also recall seeing the audition videos and it showed Kayla and Travis (among others) as (I think) assistant choreographers. Either way I see much of Travis' style in the video above.

The cancer routine wouldn't have been as great without the story... I'm pretty sure they base it on the dance chereo and possibly the outfits and music.. Personally I love Chelsie, so I would LOVE if her and Derek won : )

I tend to agree... although this Emmy might just go to Derek Hough.

So, after watching them all again, my vote is Stacey Tookey's Fear
