"Rank 'em, the Top 12 Dances"
LAST EDITED ON 07-10-08 AT 08:55 AM (EST)

Since no one's started this yet, I will get it going.

Here we go with my rankings.

The Top 12.

1. Katee and Joshua Bollywood.

I enjoyed seeing a new dance genre, and that took a lot of strength, technique and attention to details. They brought the performance and personality to it as well.

2. Courtney and Gev Cha Cha.

Was she as sexy as Anya, nope, would have liked to see a bit more hip throughout, but very fun and they brought the dance alive.

3. Chelsie and Mark Salsa

They also really performed this well and it was fun.

4. Courtney and Gev Jazz.

I just loved them in this and they really put everything into the dance.

5. Twitchington Krump

That she faded at the end brings this down a notch or so, but they gave it all they had. Just wish she had a bit more conditioning to have ended strong.

6. Chelsie and Mark Broadway.

Sassy and really showed personality.

7. Jessica and Will Contemporary

A lot of people loved this, on the rewatch I figured out what was distracting me. They did the strength moves, but there was too much effort to get them done. They did them, but didn't quite have enough power to make it look easy. Maybe it's the Mime training I had (*insert joke here*) but the small catches when one is just barely able to do something takes away from the performance aspect of the dance for me. Technically the moves were good, but they just didn't have that extra something that makes them great to watch.

8. Katee and Joshua Viennese Waltz.

Very lovely, but just lovely for me.

9. Jessica and Will Quickstep

I know I judge this against seeing my parents dance at a wedding, and I know the steps are a lot harder in a competition version than just going out and having some fun, but I do expect young people to be able to make it light and easy looking if two people nearing retirement can.

10. Comfort and Thayne Hip Hop

My love for Thayne and enjoying him in this keeps me from giving the two both bottom spots.

11. Kherington and Twitch Smooth Tango.

You don't get your nickname for this one. Don't know if Kherington is coming down with something or just ran out of steam from the Krump but this had no spark at all. The fight part in the practice was 10X more passionate than those moves done on the stage.

12. Comfort and Thayne Contemporary.

Compared to what passes as bad on most talent shows, this was still way better than a lot of the dreck out there, but for this show getting through it OK just isn't good enough.

ETA Overall

6 Courtney and Gev
9 Katee and Joshua
9 Chelsie and Mark
16 Twitchington
16 Jessica and Will
22 Comfort and Thayne

1. "RE: Rank 'em, the Top 12 Dances"
okay. Real quick-like.

Katee & Joshua Bollywood - These two work their butts off. That was great fun.
Jessica & Will Contemporary - gorgeous.
Chelsie & Mark Broadway - white tank top
Chelsie & Mark Salsa - open shirt
Courtney & Gev Jazz - fun!
Kherington & Twitch Krump - she did get really weak at the end but the beginning was good.
Courtney & Gev Cha Cha - sexy! Anya and Pasha!
Katee & Joshua V Waltz - she is beautiful
Comfort & Thayne Hip Hop - better than the rest
Jessica & Will Quickstep - after that first number this was a great disappointment.
Kherington & Twitch Smooth Tango - huh? Don't put Angelina and Brad (dream threesome) in my mind and then pull this crapfest out.
Comfort & Thayne Contemporary - oy! Poor Thayne. I agree with Nigel *choke* *gag* this should have been saved for somebody else... second time I said that about Thayne on a Mandy routine. hmmm. Anyway. She needs to go.


A ho's (and Snidge's) work is never done.

1. Katee/Josh, Bollywood-- That was so much fun! I hope we get to see this style again.

2. Gev/Courtney, Cha Cha-- Woo! That was sex-ay! I love Courtney and Gev was great, too.

3. Gev/Courtney, Jazz-- Another fun routine. I didn't get why Nigel said it didn't have any substance. They were running around and dancing their asses off!

4. Twitchington, Krump-- Twitch was on fire! Kherington started out really, really stong and I was loving it. Too bad she lost it at the end. My first thought was that she must have injured herself somehow.

5. Jessica/Will, Contemporary-- This routine had me mesmerized. I didn't love it, but I certainly couldn't take my eyes off of them. I think the music had a lot to do with it. It was just so unusual that you had to watch and see what was going on.

6. Katee/Josh, V. Waltz-- I agree with the judges that it needed to glide along the floor a whole lot more, but it was still beautiful.

7. Chelsie/Mark, Broadway-- Hm. I don't know what has happened with this couple, but they are fading for me. The judges raved about how OMGHot! this was, but I wasn't feeling it. It was just alright.

8. Comfort/Thayne, Hip Hop-- Thayne was pretty good in this! I wasn't expecting that. I think they both danced well, but it was just kind of boring.

9. Chelsie/Mark, Salsa-- Should have been hot, but again, I wasn't feeling it from them.

10. Jessica/Will, Quickstep-- I actually like the QS, and I didn't think this was so bad. I thought it was kinda fun.

11. Comfort/Thayne, Contemporary-- During the routine I said the same exact thing Nigel did. I wish we could see someone else dancing this. Great routine, but they just didn't bring anything to it.

12. Twitchington, Tango-- Ugh. Boring. No passion. This really made me think that Kher must have injured herself during the Krump. They totally lost all their fire.

Overall:
1. Courtney/Gev 5
2. Katee/Josh 7
3. Jessica/Will 15
4. Mark/Chelsie 16
5. Twitchington 16
6. Comfort/Thayne 19



Flashy moves by Tribe!

1. Katee and Joshua Bollywood.

Great fun. I do not believe the drawings are random in this I think Nigel selected these two to do it. Katee's versatility is a major factor in that choice.


2. Courtney and Gev Cha Cha.

Glad to see a number where Courtney's spunk and zest are given a the right medium.


3. Katee and Joshua Viennese Waltz.

I enjoyed this more than the judges. Katee was magnificent here.


4. Chelsie and Mark Salsa

Chelsie was a delight here. This should be #3, but I'm just a jerk.


5. Courtney and Gev Jazz.

A lot of fun.


6. Jessica and Will Contemporary

This could have been better, but it was enjoyable just the same.


7. Twitchington Krump

Would like to have rated this higher, but it just didn't do it for me.


8. Chelsie and Mark Broadway.

Dance didn't match the music.


9. Comfort and Thayne Contemporary.

This could have been so much better if Thayne had a better partner. It was good to see why he got here in the first place. At least he's got work after the show, thank you Mia.


I don't want to waste my time these. They just svcked.

10, 11, 12.
