Please keep all discussion of tonight's filler, group numbers, filler, results, filler, speeches by judges longer than a Ph.D. thesis defense, and filler on this thread until the West Coast has had a chance to watch it for themselves.

No sig pics. Sig pics make the judges wordy, and Snidget's hands are tired from last night.

*yawn* Snidgey is sleepy so hopefully I'll stay awake the whole hour. If I pass out, fell free to post.

Cat in a dark grey dress with ruffles at the top and sparkles at the bottom

Not digging the ruffles. She would look gorgeous in a potato sack, tho.

Very odd. Very cool, but very very odd.

Mia Michaels choreographed that.

Man, between that group dance and last night's performances it seems tragic that only one dancer can win.

"RE: Group Number"
Posted by whimsey on 06-26-08 at 08:24 PM
That was quite funky, fresh. Loved the costuming and music. Interesting the dancers highlighted.

Whims, could you whip up an espresso for Snidge?

"RE: Group Number"

Makin it a double espresso. We are keepin you on, hon.

"RE: Group Number - Question"
Posted by jbug on 06-26-08 at 08:31 PM
DH wants to know when and where such a dance number/routine would ever be used?
He asks me often "When would anyone ever dance like that?" after lots of the dances.
I tell him he'd see some of it as dancers for singers (none for his kind of music tho).
But I have to agree with him tonite - when would that dance & those costumes be used?
(are we that far out of touch with the now generation?)

"RE: Group Number - Question"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 08:39 PM
We have a lot of fairly out there dance here at a dance festival.

So if nowhere else you would see things like that for this.

I dunno, there is a lot of art that is just for art's sake, and I don't think dance has to be functional in that you would dance it at a wedding, or in a musical.


"RE: Group Number - Question"
Posted by memzoo48 on 06-26-08 at 08:40 PM
As a number in a Broadway, or off-Broadway, show?

"RE: Group Number - Question"
Posted by jbug on 06-26-08 at 08:51 PM
I did suggest that to him.

"RE: Group Number - Question"
Posted by whimsey on 06-26-08 at 08:54 PM
What I love about this show (and maybe others) is that it stimulates the idea of "live performance" and investing in individual talent/skill. I may not get all of it, but I will invest in a theatre performance in which it is contextual.

If that group dance was part of an theatre piece, I'd invest in tickets, get dress up and go - knowing I'd be on the edge of my seat.

"First Three Couples"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 08:27 PM
Chelsea T and Thayne Quickstep

Was Nigel right, will they need their solos. Yes he was, and they are the first couple in the bottom three.

Mary. They really had a tough go of it, did a respectable job, but not surprising, and not take into account just the solos and we will go back to the first week when they were great.

Katee and Joshua. Samba with tight trousers.
Did they need to work on their solos. Joshua was wront

They are safe.

Chelsie H and Mark Hip Pop
America loved it to, they are safe.

Sound guys had to get Cat's mic's volume back up.

Kherington and Twitch Hip Pop.

They are safe.

Courtney G and Gev
Cute clip of Gev falling down over the 1/2 a dress.

Comfort and Chris Jazz.
Judges were lukewarm and America was two.

They are also in the bottom three.



"RE: Next Three Couples"

America' got it right with all six couples so far.

That half-dress was HOT!


"RE: Next Three Couples"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 08:36 PM
Adam not surprised, six will be in the bottom three, and some of it is luck of the draw. You have to invest more than just technique, it needed more abandon and acting and you are fantastic, this is just how this show works, if you are back you need to throw everything into the performance.

"RE: Next Three Couples"
Posted by memzoo48 on 06-26-08 at 08:37 PM
Comfort will come through when she dances for her life. She's so talented and fun to watch.

"RE: Next Three Couples"

How about Chris?

"Surprised? "
Posted by DrKegel on 06-26-08 at 08:38 PM

Did Kat really ask Adam if he was surprised with Comfort and Chris being in the bottom?

Who in America is surprised?

They wouldn't be if they had watched last night.

I like Comfort and Chris, but the performance was not up to the others. It was partly the choreographer's fault.

Now:

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL KAT SHE HAD HER DRESS ON UPSIDE DOWN?

She'll be embarrassed when she finds out!!!

Bullzeye, why don't you tell her?



"RE: Surprised? "
Posted by bullzeye on 06-26-08 at 08:41 PM
Um...'cause I have no idea who you are talking about. Besides, I am too busy fixating on Cat to pay attention to anyone else.

"RE: Surprised? "

I agree about Comfort and Chris. The choreography was not as good as the others, and the music wasn't a good song for dancing. A lot of the audience would have hated the music.

"Last Two Couples"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 08:43 PM
Kourtni L and Matt Contemporary.
Jessica and William Disco

After last night's vote the final couple in the bottom three is.

Kourtni and Matt


"RE: Last Two Couples"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 08:45 PM
Nigel, as we said this is a style they were really good at. Kourtni were sensational through the auditions and now I'm not so sure, you need to bring out the personality even more. Your technique is fantastic you've been in the bottom three to long. Matt you need to immerse yourself in the parts. You need to immerse yourself in the part, you are always Matt and it isn't enough for the character parts. You've gotta find something else now.

"RE: Last Two Couples"
Posted by memzoo48 on 06-26-08 at 08:45 PM
Kourtni's so cute! She really does look a bit like Princess Di.

The show is such a yawner so far; it was so terribly obvious which couples would be in the bottom three.


"RE: Last Two Couples"
Posted by DrKegel on 06-26-08 at 08:48 PM

Really? I was surprised about Kourtini.

Thought it would have been someone else.

But now that I think of it, she's always in the bottom. Must not have connected with her audience yet so it doesn't matter that they weren't the worst last night.

Never mind!

Chelsea and Chris will go home tonight.

Well, I can't tell yet with the girls, but unless Mark totally blows, I think Chris is a goner.

"RE: Predictions?"
Posted by Snidget on 06-26-08 at 09:00 PM
Probably, but based on the solos so far I'm ready to have Chris leave, and I wouldn't mind losing Comfort either.

"RE: Predictions?"
Posted by memzoo48 on 06-26-08 at 09:05 PM
Comfort has a bad attitude, very smug. Like, she's so much cooler than the others.

"RE: Predictions?"
Posted by Glow on 06-27-08 at 07:26 AM
Courtney and Mark didn't dance solos.

Kourtni's solo was the best of the girls. (or maybe it's just me because she used Ani Difranco again)
Matt's solo was the best of the guys.

I'd have sent home Thayne instead of Chris.

"RE: SYTYCD-4 6/26 Top 16 Results ECUT"
Posted by DrKegel on 06-26-08 at 09:07 PM

I think Thayne will go. Not because he was the worst, but because of his height. Who would they stick him with?

I guess I'll say Chelsea for the same reason of getting rid of couples. And I don't think she could win.

So I'll say Chelsea and Thayne.

I think they'll give Comfort another chance. She wasn't bad last night but ....

Not for nothing, but Kourtini was absolutely gorgeous tonight! Danced beautifully. Really really nice job.

Now if she can only do that DURING the show.



"RE: SYTYCD-4 6/26 Top 16 Results ECUT"
Posted by bullzeye on 06-26-08 at 09:11 PM
Now if she can only do that DURING the show.

You have to admit - she and Mark have been given some pretty "out there" choreography to date, and the folks in Wardrobe seem to have a strange sense of humour when it comes to these two.


"RE: SYTYCD-4 6/26 Top 16 Results ECUT"
Posted by DrKegel on 06-26-08 at 09:16 PM

TOTALLY AGREE!!!

They got stuck with Mandy Moore the first week. Horrible.

But then look at Chelsea and Thayne in that horrible king/courtesan ruffled half-dress thing.

Really like Kourtini. Think the choreography for them last week came closest to something they can do well.



"RE: SYTYCD-4 6/26 Top 16 Results ECUT"
Posted by memzoo48 on 06-26-08 at 09:12 PM
Just seems like some dancers have been stuck with partners, choreography, and music that just won't cut it.

Thayne you will be dancing with Comfort next week.


"RE: Results--Guys"

"RE: Results--Guys"
Posted by DoodleBug on 06-26-08 at 09:50 PM
Check my post in the Week 3 ratings thread. You heard it here first folks! Chris's height (and his dancing) was not doing Comfort any favors. Thayne and Comfort should be interesting!

"RE: Results--Guys"

Comfort jumping into Chris' arms was the first time she allowed me to like her. That was sweet.

"RE: Results--Guys"
Posted by emydi on 06-27-08 at 08:45 AM
ditto

but I liked her solo last nite...i like hip hop better than cont so I'm glad they kept her...I dunno if she will make it to final 10 and the tour (although Hok et al got to go last year)


"RE: Results--Guys"
Posted by Glow on 06-27-08 at 09:58 AM
I liked her solo last night too (except for the constant pulling up of the pants). Chelsea was the right choice, IMO.

Yeah. That top 10 doesn't mean much if you have routines they want to showcase on tour. They couldn't do the Hok birdie dance without Hok. Anya was there too, right? (Dang. Now I can't remember who was in the top 10 last year. hmmm.)


"RE: Results--Guys"
