I hate the new stage. It's too big, has too many lights, the audience is too far away, Cat seems lost and drowned in it's vastness, we can't have numbers that start on the stairs or use the stairs and there is no balconey for the next dancers to pose on. I HATE IT!!!!
Why do shows always feel the need to change when something isn't broken?
So Billy Bell is gone. Whatever. All I know about him is he looked about 10 and was a good dancer. Since I didn't watch the auditions, I had no preset love for him and while I'm sure he had amazing technique, that isn't what I'm looking for in my reality shows. So get well Billy. And uh . . . .bye.
And Noelle looks like she will soon be joining him and since I have no clue who she is . . . . . I'm guessing Ariana's exit might be short-lived.
So who impressed me and who might tempt me to vote? Well I liked Ryan and Elenore a lot! I always like hot ballroom guys. The dance did remind me a little of Nico's angel dance from SYTYCD Canada season 1 but that's okay. They had a lot of stage presence and good chemistry and so far are my fave couple.
I also loved Legacy (who would have thunk?) and um . . . . . . I can't remember her name. (Mostly because I fast forwarded through the intros. . . yea, that's how much I care right now) But that Dave Scott Hip hop number was superb. Simply superb. I loved it.
So there you go. My two fave couples so far. I also liked the Jakob/Ashleigh Broadway but since Jakob had his body tongue bathed big time by Nigel I don't think I'll keep liking them. I can not stand to be shoved onto someone head first. And I think this is the year of the 'TECHNICALLY TRAINED FAVORITE ' to win. I think all the moaning over Danny, Travis and Will not winning means they want a MALE TECHNICAL DANCER or it might be a tapper though I didn't get that vibe last night. So no. Nigel you can not shove me onto your favorite horse. Never going to happen.
As for bottom 4 - I call fix as I do not see how Russell - who seems to be a clear favorite - was in the bottom. He killed that solo and I don't even like Krump. But, I also think he's a danger to the favorite because he is NOT a technical dancer so Nigel might boot him early. Brandon was a no-brainer and I do think they will let him audition again. I also think the girls were not that bad and that Ariana will probably be back. And I found Nathan and Mollee (sorry Jennifer I know you like them) to be beyond annoying with their in your face aren't you cute vibe. And that disco was kind of a mess. Bianca and Victor were fine but again - too much manipulation for me. I can't stand the way the judges lips are permanently glued to Travis' butt ( better dance than the overhyped necklace dance at least) and Bianca just does nothing for me. Victor is good but kind of in a no charisma, another pretty contemporary boy way. Cha Cha and jive couple whose names I don't remember were boring and bad.
So we'll see. I was ready to give up on this season when Sonya sent out the angels and Dave sent out the cavemen. Those dances made me sit up and take notice.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha . Mark and his bitchface are gone baby! Bwah!!!!!!!! Oh poor baby, you can't get an Olympic champion every time. Hahahahahahha. And MJH was horrible and bitchy and entitled and boring and Haaaaaaaa!
I enjoyed that elimination immensely. And while I liked Louie initially, I would have booted him last night too. Boring dance and Michael at least is fun. Untalented and probably gone next week but fun.
And um . . . Donny? What were you wearing? It's not St. Patrick's Day. Eeep.
I love Donny/Kym, Mark/Lacey and Louis/Kelly. (though Kelly needs to step up her game and I fear she is not long for the show) I hate Aaron/Karina and Joanna/Derek. I do think the finale is going to be Donny/Kym, Joanna/Derek and ?????? The last spot is the question mark. I thought Aaron was a goner but suddenly he's rehabilitated again. I loathe him and hope he tanks again.
Loved, loved, loved the pro dance to Love Story. Dear God that was beautiful. I wanted it to go on forever. The pros killed that. So pretty.
This Spanish duologue is kind of kicking my butt. I am not doing that well feeling the "Spanish" vibe and kept trying to imitate the sample they sent me but now? I'm just going to write my style and if they don't like it, it's fine. So back to workage.
