Sure So You Think You Can Dance is about, well, dancing, but the best performances need to have three very important elements: the right choreography, talented performers and compelling music.

Travis Wall and Heidi Groskreutz’s “Bench” dance wouldn’t have the same goosebumps factor without Celine Dion’s “Calling You,” and Melissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi’s contemporary routine to “Woman’s Work” would have been incomplete with Maxwell’s poignant song.

Too Much To Tivo compiled a list of songs that combined with the right choreography and contestants, could rank as some of the most memorable performances of the series.

A Nap and Tabs number to Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love The Way You Lie” could send a powerful message about abuse, and J. Lo’s “On The Floor,” would make for a ballroom spectacular.
