"Season 2 Finale"
I guess this is technically considered a spoiler thread since the West Coast has not had a chance to view the whole program yet, so I will just babble on here in the filler zone. That should be enough space, don't you think? Yup, I do.

Anyway. I just had to be the first to say

Yay Benji!!!

I never had any doubt that he would win, but I will admit to my heart beating fast when Cat came out with that envelope after his solo. *whacks Cat*

Overall, I thought this was a perfect finale. It highlighted the final 4 by letting them choose which were their favorite performances to do again (funny how they all chose routines that included one of the other final 4, isn't it? *snort*) and it also gave us a look back at the other top 20. I loved seeing some of my favorite routines again due to the judges pics (Yay! for the Allison/Ivan contemporary. LOVE it!).

If I didn't love this show the way I do, I might have been annoyed by all the filler, but I am so sad to see this season ending, and was overjoyed that the finale was a 2 hour event that showcased what was so great about the series.

I just can't even put into words how happy I am that Benji won. My love for him defies explanation. He makes me happy in a world too often full of sadness. Believe me, I know how silly that sounds, but it's the truth nonetheless. I was happy today knowing that I would see him tonight on my tv screen. He thanks us for voting for him, but I have to say "Thank YOU, Benji! For being you, and bringing joy to my life, and the lives of many others."

Ok. Enough sap.
What did you think of the finale?


Bouncing in BenjiLove!

1. "RE: Season 2 Finale"
In the words of Mary Murphy: "Woooooooooooooo!!"

That was a phenomenal finale. I laughed and I cried and I enjoyed every minute of it. When Benji was finally annouced the winner, I jumped up and down in celebration. As you said, SiverStar, he just brings me so much joy & happiness when i watch him.

Loved the montages and all the routines that were chosen to be redone. I have all eps on DVR since the final 10 and will be copying them to tape this weekend for future viewing and now I have a couple extras . . . Dmitry & Natalie's number (hmm, sparks off the dance floor, Mary? Does this mean they are an item???) I'm happy to have Travis & Martha's first jazz number, as well, since I didn't have that recorded.

I am going to miss this show so much. This is my favorite competition reality show, far above AI, DWTS and even Rockstar (though RS is my 2nd fave) and any of the lame imitations in between.

At least I was lucky enough to snag tix to the tour and in 2 months I will be seeing my favorite dances live!!

2. "RE: Season 2 Finale"
I agree with you Star that it was awesome to see all the dances again. I was so happy they showed Allison and Ivan's contemporary because I accidentally deleted that week off my TiVo so now I have it - yay! I also thought it was great that the top 4's dances all involved each other. Notice both guys picked their dances with Heidi, which says a lot about her strengths as a partner (at least I think so.) Very impressed by Heidi choosing the routine that challenged her the most instead of playing it safe. I was a little surprised at Donyelle's pick of the Broadway routine, but I think that's more because I hated the dress they put her in than the actual routine. She seemed to throw a lot more into it this time and had fun with it.

What I DID NOT like was the way Cat eliminated Heidi and Donyelle. It just was so awkward and staged when Cat opened the envelope and said "It's not you," then that guy appeared with flowers like it was a pageant or something. It was even worse for Heidi, because immediately after being eliminated, she had to dance with Travis. I just don't understand why they couldn't wait until the very end to announce the winner out of the 4 of them.

Finally, a big thumbs down to FOX for letting the show run over again - we could have lived without Ciara's performance and then you could have fit everything into your time slot. My TiVo cut off right after Cat announced the winner. Morons.

I agree on that thumbs down. I got a few seconds of Celine's speech and then it cut off. Anybody who saw the rest want to let us in on what happened after that?

You really didn't miss much. Celine just blah blah'd and said she was happy to be the first one to wish Benji congrats. Cat asked Benj if there was anything he wanted to say to America and he said "I love you! Thank you!" and then everyone swarmed around him to give hugs.

Count me in on the thumbs down of the run over. I know it wasn't much that my DVR cut off, but I would have liked the whole thing when I copy it for future viewings.

Also hated the way they eliminated Heidi & Donyelle -- pathetic and cheesy. Loved their montages and Donyelle's speech brought tears to my eyes.

The "musical artists" are a load of carp and a waste of time. This is NOT AI or a signing competition. I would have rather have seen some more "Judge's favorites" routines from the dancers not in the top 10 or just other new pairings, like the Dmitri/Natalie routine.

Ha Ha- "signing" competition! I thought that singer was
lip synching, so in a way, she was "signing" her song!

Loved the show! Hated that America got it wrong and didn't pick the best dancer. At least last year the final two were both awesome dancers. But, I know Travis will be okay and pick up plenty of work after this show where he proved he was the best!

What defines "best"? As senior citizen so brilliantly put it in another thread, "Technique is not sacred. It is just a cultural phenomenon." Benji brought people joy; in fact, so many people got joy from seeing him dance, that he won. That, in my opinion, wins him the title of "best" dancer.

11. "RE: Season 2 Finale"
That statement is very unfair to Benji and all the ballroom dancers in the world. Don't you consider what they do, dancing???

There are no losers in this show, especially those that made the top 10 and even more so the top 4, because they got exposure, the opportunity to work with great choreographers and learn other styles of dance. The top 10 are touring the U.S. which will give them even more exposure and experience.

Travis is a phenomenal contemporary dancer, Benji is a phenomenal swing/ballroom dancer. Most people can't even come close to their talent. Who is to say that one type of dance "earns more credibility" than another?

The voters got it right for the final 2, they both are masters of their craft. Throughout the season, Benji's personality, the joy he exuded while he danced, his strength as a partner and the fact that he didn't disappoint in anything he was thrown, always putting in 100% is why he won.

YAY BENJI!!!!!

That. Was a great finale. When I first looked at the time slot and saw it was 2 freaking hours I was like WTF??? But, now I'm glad thay made it that long because we got to see all those great routines once again! I too hated the way they ousted Heidi and Donyelle. It just seemed cruel. No reason why they couldn't have had them all do their fav routine and solo and then line up to announce the winner at the end from all four. Pbbtttt.

*rant* The singers I could do without and to top it off, they were lip-syncing. A huge Pet Peeve of mine. You are making tons of money singing so sing dammit! If you can't do it live then you shouldn't be doing it. Get off my TV. *end rant*


Summer siggy thanks to Syren!

Right on, Mag. I hated the lip-synching. It was really, really obvious with Ciara, but at least there was some interesting dancing to watch. I wasn't sure if Fergie was actually singing or not. At times, it sounded like she might've been. I'll have to re-watch my tape.

I'm so glad Benji won it. I voted for an hour and 20 minutes straight last week (until my phone battery died), and I've never bothered to vote for anyone in a reality competition like that before. Benji, thanks for the great dances and entertainment. You have definitely brought joy to us this season.

I'm not so sure I saw the same Finale as some of the folks here.

The one I watched on FOX was absolutely AWFUL!

Another 40 minute show stretched for 2+ hours filled with fluff and mirrors. Com'on....MORE AUDITION TAPES????? WTF? We watched the stupid show all season and had to endure them every single night. A well-produced finale should have been about the best dancers.

Imagine how great it would have been without the awful musical guests and fake drama from our Hostess.

Someone beat me to it already, but seriously....that was the WORST ELIMINATION script of any relaity show to date. Getting rid of your number 3+4 dancers after they danced their hearts out in a solo with no suspense whatsoever was just bad show.

Oh well....it's not worth carrying on about, but I felt the need to bring some "reality" into the show's rave reviews. Aside from the amazing performers themselves, it really wasn't all that good of a show.

Here's hoping for better next year!

LAST EDITED ON 08-18-06 AT 02:16 AM (EST)

I have to agree with you on many points. Fortunately I had recorded it and watched a day later, so I got to fast forward through the songs, etc.
Like everyone here, I too believe the way they eliminated the women was pure crap.
I noticed that both Heidi and Donyelle danced in top form, while Travis and Benji went through the numbers on their pieces (except for the sunflower—way to go, Travis!). My theory is that the women already knew they were going to be eliminated and so the pressure was off. I think Travis and Benji—especially Benji—were off because of their nerves from not knowing how it was going to turn out.

Donyelle killed on that Broadway number. Her toe was bad the first time she did it, but she was tremendous in the Finale.

I'm sorry to see this end.
