"Heidi"
I cant understand why everyone likes her. Each week she looks the same, her style doesnt really change at. All her moves are fast...she isnt sensual...even when the dance calls for it. Benji and Heidi dancing together for a few years, and dancing as a couple on the show....Bah....just horrible seeing a very good dancer like allison go home while she and Donyel(sp?) are still up there

1. "RE: Heidi"
first post, so be gentle.

I think all the dancers are very talented at this point in the competition. And Heidi is an *excellent* ballroom dancer, who also seems like a really nice, likeable girl. I'm glad she's done well in the competition.

That said, I was very disappointed to see Allison be in the bottom 2 and go home instead of Heidi.

And I'm disappointed that the producers didn't mention that Benji and Heidi were long-time partners and NATIONAL DANCE CHAMPIONS TOGETHER. It was an awesome routine, but what a HUGE advantage to have YEARS of experience with a partner versus the other pairs!!

I don't quite understand why, but I think the producers are really protecting Heidi with a combination of the routines they are giving her, the over-enthusiastic reviews, and eliminating the solo performance. Obviously, it is still up to America's vote, but what the judges say has a lot of impact.

For example, this week the producers gave Heidi ballroom (her specialty) and a Broadway routine that was much, much easier than routines done by the other pairs, and in my opinion WAY overpraised by the judges. (the broadway routine, not the Mambo routine)

And last week, there was that awesome contemporary routine where Heidi was basically carried by Travis, literally and figuratively. The part for Heidi was really a whole lot of nothing.

Unfortunately, I don't think the average viewer can tell that, for example, that Natalie and Ryan are doing a routine that is a comparatively a '10' in difficulty at a quality level of maybe '7', and Heidi/benji are doing a broadway routine that is a '3' in difficulty at a quality level of '8' (10 for Benji and 6 for Heidi). They just see a lot of energy, great showmanship, and the judges going wild for Heidi/Benji.

Once again, I love Heidi for ballroom, but at this point, to see more a more versatile, talented dancer going home is discouraging. I was looking forward to a finale of Allison, Benji, and Donyelle.

I am a Heidi fan, but I was really hoping to see Allison do much better. I think Allison was the most publicly underated one there. The judges liked her, but she didn't have that spark to grab the public vote. I would like to have seen what she could have done with Benji. Maybe on the tour.....

That combination however is definitely what people are voting on. The only thing you can subtract from any performance is the judges. I do think that the choreographers come up with some lame routines for some couples and I have to wonder if that is done purposely.

I most definitely didn't want Alison to go home but at this stage, someone we liked was going to and Heidi and Benji have huge fan bases that would vote even if they didn't watch an episode.

Remember who we're talking about: Nigel, who perfected this concept with American Idol. Nigel has two hard and fast rules. ONE: Set up an awesome finale. What better to pit cousin against cousin? They're skewing things to get to a Benji/Heidi finale. TWO: Eliminate one of the strongest contenders at the number four position to shake things up and "shock" America into voting more. That's the only reason Alison was sacrificed last night.

welcome to that boards flyswat! i just have to say that i agree with everything you said. i really want to like Heidi, she is great at what she does, and she definitely gets an A+ for effort--she obviously worked really hard in her hip hop and contemporary routines. i just think that of the final 4 females, she should have been #4.

I was looking forward to a finale of Allison, Benji, and Donyelle.

me too! although i also thought that Donyelle would go before Allison.

Welcome both Flyswat and Tamtam. Interesting ideas about Heidi being protected, and Alison's shocking boot. I wonder if that's why Alison and Ivan AGAIN danced the tango? - which made Alison look limited, and Ivan look better.

If the audience is going to vote for popular, rather than most talented... I think Heidi has a good chance. I wonder if the judges think her cutesy, high energy will help rejuvenate dance and bring in the live audiences following this competition.

Yes to all you said. Personally, I just think Heidi has the 'dancer's look' about her. Sorry, but Donyelle just doesn't--in any of the dance styles IMO. Natalie is "hotter," but she just doesn't show the passion as Heidi, again IMO. And too remember what the "prize" will be; the Vegas show may be looking for someone like Heidi or Benji.

9. "RE: Heidi"
I too think in a Vegas show they might be looking for Heidi's high energy to project right off of the stage... but again, I hear the dreamy tone in Celine's music, and Heidi's not really "dreamy". I do like Donyelle because she is a unique dancer, she's great to watch, and has lots of feeling, but I don't think she'll win it.

A few weeks back I thought this was Dmitry's ticket, but this show has become really interesting since then.

10. "RE: Heidi"
i think Heidi tends to be set on super high energy all the time, which i admire--but sometimes it does come across as being fake. perky is one thing, but she is seems like she is always in turbo mode. it makes it hard when a routine requires depth of emotion--like her contemporary routine with Travis--or when another emotion is needed, which is why her hip hop routine kinda looked like a cheer routine.

Nigel has told her that she tends to over do it a bit. i think that is what bugs me about her, she is great at what she does, but when she's out of her element she looks like she's trying too hard.

13. "RE: Heidi"
I think Heidi turned the "charm" on early on in the show. I don't remember which exact week it was, but it was when the judges were first telling the girls that they needed to let America see their personalities so they would get votes. Ever since then I think she has really tried to be over perky whenever in front of the mic.

thanks for the welcoming messages, everyone! I have enjoyed reading your posts and finally decided to register and join in.

After seeing last night's show I have to give Heidi some more credit. She did well last night, and I have to give her credit for working hard to improve, as well.

14. "RE: Heidi"
At fist I thought Heide was nothing but ballroom and she reminded me allot of Kimmy Gibler from full House, but she grew on me especially after that Afro Cuban Routine. Unfortunately I dont think she is cut out for that Celine Dion Cirque De So Gay type show that Mia Michaels choreographs, she showed this in the bench sitting Contemporary routine where Mia Michales had her do nothing pretty much. I think Dmitry would have been perfect for the Celine Dione show because of his Bodytype and performance quality but since he is out it will either be Travis or Benji. Most likely Benji because Travis is too short.

Well...I was never a big fan of Heidi's in the beginning, but she grew on me over time.

You have to admit...she's got the best "dancer legs" of the top 6 girls! (By that I mean those long thin "Vegas Showgirl" legs, before anyone gets offended.)

She actually looke dpretty good last night, too, with her hair down. Made her jawline look a lot softer and her head a lot rounder. I thought it made her routines look "flowier" than when her hair is all pinned back.

Good luck to Her and Benji in the "COUSIN vs COUSIN" Finals!!!

After I saw the two of them dance together in the audition, this has always been in the back of my mind. Based on the way Donyelle looked on Wednesday, I would have said this was a definite possibility. But, she looked like she had her mojo on the way back on Thursday, so one can never tell.
