I know, I’m a few days behind – blame Big Brother taking up my time and thoughts as we got Big Brother Craze back up and running! By now, I’m sure everyone knows that Kherington and Gev were sent home last Thursday, but I wanted to make sure to post the Group dances. Mia can be a total witch, but you know what? She can choreograph like no one else, ever. The Girls dance to Ava Maria was stunningly beautiful, as usual.
And the Bollywood routine? Genius! I love love LOVE Bollywood!
And of course, there was Nigel as the “mystery choreographer” Old Mo. Heh.
I’ll miss Gev, but I think it was Kherington’s time to go for sure. Tune in Wednesday for the performances of the top 8!
So last night on SYTYCD, it’s the top 10, new partnerships, and the Judges are no longer handling the eliminations, it’s all about the votes of the people from here on out. We also go to see what happened to Jessica. Seems she broke two ribs and fractured another, and has been ordered by the doctors to not dance for four weeks. She’s pulls out, but is pleased that Comfort gets to take her place in the competition. Awww!
It’s a jam-packed evening of dance, as the girls pick their partners name out of a hat for two partner dances, and then each dancer will have a solo as well.
Speaking of – here’s all of the solos in one fell swoop.
We take a break from Big Brother Mania in order to let you know what to expect tomorrow night on So You Think You Can Dance. It was announced this morning that Jessica King has suffered an injury, and the last eliminated girl, Comfort, will be reinstated to the competition with Jessica’s full support.
There were no specifics given about the injury – how it happened or what exactly it was, just that it would take time and a lot of rest to heal. Comfort was back in the studio for rehersal this morning. Take that, Mia – who, by the way, doesn’t think she’s the mean judge, but more “Mama Mia” with a tough love approach. Umhm…
Other tidbits that came from a Q&A with the judges – the Choreographers work with the dancers only for about an hour and a half on Fridays and three hours on Saturday – which makes it all the more impressive what these dancers pull out! Also, Nigel’s still upset when he talks about Robert quitting the competition in Vegas.
The best part of any elimination show isn’t the solos, in my opinion, nor the guest dancers/singers. Nope, it’s the group performances that start off the show – THATS what I love, and this one is no different, though it’s not my favorite so far… it’s still pretty cool. I mean, GLOW IN THE DARK! Duh. Can’t go wrong with that!
Now, the guest performance – that was truly moving! Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater had three of their dancers perform, and it was simply stunning. The musical guest to fill in the space while Judges deliberate was Katy Perry, singing “I Kissed a Girl.” Which is oddly catchy and has been stuck in my head all bloody day.
There were no surprises in the final three – except possibly Jessica and Will, though when there’s only 6 couples and half of them are going to end in the bottom, it’s really not overly shocking one of my favorites ended up dancing for their lives. Joining them there was Twitchington, and Comfort and Thayne once again.
The solos were great as usual, though Comfort looked hurried and panicked though Nigel thought it was brilliant. Kherington was stunning, and Jessica was somewhere in the middle. Will was fanfreakingtastic – he’s just so beautiful to watch, Twitch was total fun, and Thayne rocked it as well. The judges wished they could keep all three boys and ditch two girls, but it wasn’t to be.
And really, unsurprisingly, despite Mia’s tears of mourning when her beloved boy was cast aside, Comfort and Tayne said goodbye last night, and we’re down to our final 10.
We’re one step closer to the top 10 on So You Think You Can Dance, and the couples turned it out again last night, as the best shone and the others… well, they tried. Each couple performed twice again this week, and while there were some definite hits, there were quite a few misses too. Just another night for SYTYCD!
Mia is one of the judges – which means I’m going to be groaning by nights end. Her Choreography is flawless, but her commentary? Ugh. Ugh. UGH.
Yeah you! All this bullshit I write? Is mine. So keep your hands off, will ya? I'm sure you could totally come up with better shit on your own.
Also - dude. All opinions stated herein these pages are my own, and not those of anyone I might work for. Just in case you think I'm slamming something important, like, oh, say, my work place. I love my job, my co-workers, and anything that you might think is about you? Well, you might be right. Just remember I show my affection by endless nagging, picking on, laughing, etc. :) We're adults. Well. I am. On the outside.
