    Ok as a tapper and a ballerina who is en pointe, I believe House of Tap's routine was more technically advanced and challenging. Like I get it it's about putting forward the most competitive routine and I Love Kayla Mak but House of Tap shoulda won. Tap is sooooo underrated on WOD

      plus Kayla didn't actually go up on pointe for a good majority of her dance?

    I loved both so much but this is my honest opinion tap is really underrated but I still thought that Kayla deserved to win. Just my opinion please don't take it to heart ☺

    No fair. Female judge is involved with Kayla. Should not have been allowed to vote. House of tap never had a chance

    I've been going tap for 7 years and tap is SO over looked. No, it's not flips. No it's not extreme flexibility. But the ammount of skill is so hard. The moves are hard. The technique is difficult.

    Is there a reason they took down House of Taps Duel Performance? It was one of my absolute favourite acts in the whole show and I'd love to rewatch it. ):

    The tap was great but the show is designed to make those types of groups and dances have a small chance of winning. They fought to get that far though still love Kayla though

    K. If you ask me. That's basically choosing one dance styles out of the 2 at there literal bests. Those taps were soo dope(if you go to the form) and such sink. Almost each tap hitted at same time for both. While Kayla had such wow moments, and the end was great.

    i just observed just now that most of those who won under the redemption stage,were the ones who are now in Divisional finals, like Briar Nolet,Dancetown diva,Kyla Mak here, its just wow! you will just not really know what will happen in this kind of competition and that they are really good in their perspective division area. And now Briar Nolet and Kyla Mak are hard competitors in their division area where as they almost barely not make it. They are fully talented dancers. Just saying

    AKSHAT KUMAR 29 days ago

    House of tap totally killed it and did several steps other than tap while Kayla didn't bring anything new to the table except leg extensions.
    Totally was a wrong decision to go with Kayla ahead.

    It's so ironic how kayla lost to funkanometry in the duels but proceeded to knock them out in the cut.

    Sadly I knew the tappers would be gone before either of them started. Tap never gets the credit it deserves.

  • Meg

    Nobody appreciates tap.
    It's one of my favorites, and you don't see that many tappers because they just will not let them past the duels. We've seen flexibility before, but you haven't seen an in sync wings with two tappers.

  • J J

    kayla did nothing actually from ballet technique. smh house of tap deserved to continue

  • Angel Liao
    Angel Liao Month ago

    I feel like the choreographer didn't do Kayla's skills justice in both her duels and redemption routines. Her qualifier performance was much better with variety (like the turns on pointe). Also, pointe is so underrated on this show since it's less flashy and keeping balanced on such slippery floor is a feat in itself.

  • Kelsi Negrete

    House of tap should’ve won because they did everything with energy and tempo and their routine was so good

  • Kelsi Negrete
    Kelsi Negrete Month ago

    What Kayla did at 1:41 was so off tempo from the music and just doing a trick and letting it stay there while the music is still going is just unacceptable...

  • Michael Cook
    Michael Cook Month ago

    Dude no love for incredible tap dancing. Kayla was awesome. At the same time contemporary ballet is like listening to a really good song on repeat for 10 years straight. Frustrating. Would've loved to see the tap routine go through.

  • Véronique Courville-Tremblay

    How do they choose who goes to redemption?

    People saying the tap group shouldve won did not pay attention to their lack of synchronation on certain parts. I shouldnt see a wobble on shuffles and two portions sounded like popcorn instead of nsync clicks

  • Gabriela Alaniz
    Gabriela Alaniz Month ago

    I mean obviously the tricks that the solo girl did were extremely hard but her routine was repetitive af! When being a soloist, there’s only so much you could do by yourself, but house of tap really deserved to win the redemption because of their versatility and obviously because they’re extremely talented in tapping. Disappointed in this show and how it has favorites. The only duels that are fair are the hip hop duels.

  • Kruamat Thielk

    Im super upset. House of tap totally deserved to be in the cut. Kayla was super skilled and talented but I just watched 3 lifted of the same leg and same moves I have seen. It must be difficult to pick but house of tap definitely brought more on this one and this made me really upset. Go you House of Tap! Im glad im not the only one on your side

  • india holloman
    india holloman Month ago

    unpopular opinion: tap and ballet although very beautiful on this show difficultly doesn't hold weight to the most entertaining and not specifically the outcome for this round but in the past they were not entertaining enough on top of difficulty. this show incorporates both but undoubtedly is for entertainment because this is a TV SHOW don't let the title mislead you its not about difficulty also this whole season ain't as good as past so don't write it off as a tap thing

  • Brittney Perrodin
    Brittney Perrodin Month ago

    lol....the judges screwed up.....90% of this comment section is supportive of house of tap.....i feel like a lot of shows do this....they get rid of REALLY strong competitors in order to protect the contestants that they *prefer* to win. Julian/Charlize are the obvious darlings this season, not that they don't deserve it because they do but if HoT had to compete against them later on, it may have come too close for comfort. at least there's Briar, i'm rooting for her too. she's not a hollywood dancer or a famous dancer's sibling so it feels more real....

  • Brittney Perrodin
    Brittney Perrodin Month ago

    I'm sorry but Kayla Mak's duel AND redemption was garbage compared to House of Tap. There's some serious favoritism going on here. Even Kayla seemed surprised she won.

    chelsea harris Month ago

    the real problem with this show is that they send the worse groups through and 5e better groups to redemption. kayla should’ve never been in redemption to begin with, the boys she lost against were not as good as her and i feel as that the tappers would’ve stayed had they been put against those two boys.

    Really? I thought House of Tap was better even with the song that clearly isn't suitable to tap....they were still able to make the choreography work with it in a GREAT way. I liked the redemption routine just as much as their other routines. I absolutely love ballet but Kayla's redemption routine didn't do it justice to me....she just seemed to do a bunch of tricks that she thought might impress the judges....apparently it worked. They're never going to like tappers unless they exhibit godly levels of synchronization....has a solo tapper ever gone far?

  • Lana

    house of tap really outperformed kayla but the judges are blinded by true performance skills and talent that they give the win to the easier skill.

    Look, Kayla is great technically but maybe the prolonged handstand and the way she beautiful matched the ending going down were the only standouts. There was no originality (not like when Briar brought it) and those were all tricks we'd seen from her before AND it was basically trick after trick like LOOK MA NO HANDS. She was just showing off what we already knew she could do (with like maybe two new moments) and while I feel like her Duel dance was worthy of a stay, this "redemption round" was not.
