"So You Think You Can Dance" Summer 2009

Recommended Posts

I loved last night's ep! There were some really amazing routines - I especially loved Travis'. I wanted to watch it again right after!

 

I usually don't start watching until we reach the Top 10, so it's ON now! cheesy.gif

I'm so happy for NappyTabs emmy nomination! I think they are even better this year. And where the heck did that amazing routine from Travis come from?!?! Seriously, what is going on between Jason and Jeanine... thought they were going to make out on the stage! Great show last night. Can't wait for Kathy's recap :):):)

Here goes! Ok, so I'm not going to touch on people's solos from last night since I felt like most of them were "meh" and that voters don't generally vote based on solos, they're going to vote for people whose couple dances they loved, imo. Onward!

 

Girls group dance (bollywood): Ha! I looooove bollywood and I thought it was a totally cute dance, I was watching the show with my friend and when we saw the masks on the back of their heads she was shouting "omg that's freaky, I don't like it!!!" haha. They were creepy but I thought that it was kind of funny, it didn't bother me as much as it bothered her....it was odd though lol.

 

Guys group dance (African): Ooooh this was cool, I really enjoyed that dance! Lisa's right, as soon as they started up the dance, my friend and I couldn't help but laugh at lovable Evan as he stood out like a sore thumb in all his whiteness! haha and when he stuck out his pseudo-beer belly, he had me doing this: rofl.gif. But regardless of that, I thought the dance was great and really high energy. I think this is the first time they've done an African dance, so it was nice to have them throw another genre in the mix.

 

Kayla & Evan (Viennese waltz) - I was surprised at how well they did dispite their obvious height difference. During the little segment before the dance, I KNEW in the pit of my gut that they were going to have Kayla barefoot for it though lol. She's just too tall for Evan. Anyhoo, I thought Evan did a great job and I was surprised that he even was able to do a lift...so good for him! Kayla was lovely as usual so that's no surprise. Overall, it was really enjoyable! Despite all of this, I think they both may be in the bottom 3 tonight...just a hunch.

 

Jeanette & Ade (hip hop) - I enjoyed this a lot on an entertainment level! But as far as blowing-my-mind-with-something-new...it didn't. It was really good and I thought they were "funky" enough (as the judges put it) but it wasn't like an "OMG amazing" or anything. Really fun story and choreography. I'm not sure if they'll be safe tonight, there aren't many people left at this point so anything's possible really but I hope they will be because they're two of my favorites.

 

Jeanine & Jason (contemporary) - FINALLY! lol Finally these two get to do a routine in their own style! This was beautifully choreographed and even more beautifully performed. I loved everything about this dance and you could practically feel the passion in the dance and story coming out of the tv screen (or at least I could). They totally earned and deserved their standing ovation. I think and I HOPE that these two will be safe for sure tonight.

 

Randi & Kupono (paso doble) - Ok, so I was totally disapointed with this! Like Erin said yesterday, her gay bf should be rocking this character....and I didn't like Randi's wig, it didn't even look like it was her, not that it's her fault for the styling. Despite all of that, that dance looked rough and choppy! There were a few nice moments in there but they were overshadowed by the rest of the dance which was lacking passion and skill. I actually got bored watching it and started browsing on BDW lol. The music didn't seem to fit the style either. I don't know who is picking music this year for dances but it seems like in previous season that the music selections were MUCH better. These two are both definitely going to be in the bottom 3 tonight.

 

Melissa & Brandon (broadway) - I love these two and I enjoyed this routine for what it was but again, I didn't feel like it blew me away. Personally, I didn't care for that version of the song either (too slow). They both danced it well and how they were supposed to but it wasn't the most exciting dance in the world. I think these two are fan favorites so they will probably be ok tonight...and if not, they won't get kicked off because the judges LOVE them.

 

My guesses for tonight's elimination are....

 

Girls: Randi, Jeanette, Kayla

 

Guys: Kupono, Evan, Ade

 

Eliminated: Randi & Kupono

 

Can't wait for tonight to see how this all goes down! cheesy.gif

I would be okay if Kupono went home! I know Kayla is a really great dancer but for some reason she has always rubbed me the wrong way...I don't know what it is about her.

The friend I watch the show with says its because she gets the impression by Kayla's body language that it looks like Kayla thinks she's all that and a bag of chips lol.

totally agree with everything you said!

Kathy - good review! hmm you think Randi and Kupono though? Kupono does rub me the wrong way but I don't know if he will be eliminated quite yet

I hope Evan and Melissa or Janette go (ack don't throw tomatoes at me for saying that! rottentomato.gif I really just don't like either of those girls! IMO, Melissa is overrated, she is really getting on my nerves for some reason too!)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
