    Oh Erin- it's already been broughten.

    I LOVE Bring It On. Seriously, back when I was in college and living in the dorms (with no cable TV!) we watched that movie on VHS all the time! LOL- I sound really old now. Who says VHS anymore? Or has no cable TV in dorms?

      What did you guys think of the special guest dancers? That chick did not smile once, not even when it was over and they were getting applause. It was a lot of fancy footwork, but I didn't really love it.

        My DH thought she was being bitchy to Cat at the end. I thought maybe she didn't speak English? I liked some of the stuff they did, especially the stunts. But for performance factor, I like the show's style better!

            That guest dancer girl had mannequin (sp) hands. It really freaked me out. The whole time she was standing there iwth Cat, she didn't move her hands out of dance pose. Weird.

            And the guy had too many clothes on, ha ha. Not that I wanted to see him naked or anything but the big overcoat seemed to hide his moves. Maybe he was hididng a beer belly? In general I wasn't a fan of their costumes. Her skirt looked like a balck plastic garbage bag.

            When I compare it to other tangoes, (Chelsea and Josh) it was not so bueno.

              Plus tangos are suppose to be passionate - i saw like ZERO chemistry between the two of them - he never looked at her

              Oh and i LOVE bring it on - i watch it any time its on TV. Do you guys also love Center Stage? Best movie ever!

                Yael, I will watch any dance/cheer movie, anytime! I love Center Stage, though I haven't seen the sequel - Center Stage 2 (catchy title). I am secretly a 14 year old girl.

                After the movie is over I proceed to prance all over my house and realish in my bad-ass dancing ability.

                I actually know the whole routine at the end of dirty dancing. My friends and I used to practice it.

                I'm a dork. It's ok, I've accepted it.

                  I just now finally watched both episodes.

                  You girls summed up a lot of my thoughts. I really thought Askua should have gone and it bugged me that they seemed to keep her by default just because there were more contemporary dancers. Her solo wasn't that great and I do usually appreciate ballroom. I see how ballroom dancers have a tougher time with solos because they are so used to working in pairs, but if the whole show is built on the expectation that you need to push yoursef out of your element, I don't think that's an excuse.

                  I don't have any sad feelings about Tony going. I basically think he only made it on the show because they couldn't bring on Alex due to the contract thing.

                  I thought the guest dancers were boring and FF through their performance.

                    I'm with you Erin!!!
                    I love Stomp the Yard. Whenever it's on I"m clapping my hands/legs/feet and stomping all over the place!!! LOL
                    And I love ANYTHING dance - Step Up, Save the Last Dance, and what's that one with Antonio Banderas teaching ballroom to ghetto kids?? I love them all!!! And not only do I know all the DD moves - I know every line! lol I saw the theatre performance in Toronto & LOVED it!!! I was like a 12 year old girl, sitting on the edge of my seat...I even teared up a few times because I was so excited!!! lol
                    Crap...sorry!! lol

                    Back to topic...

                    And am I the only one that didn't think Tony & Paris's routine was THAT bad!? I know it was a great night - but I kind of liked them! More so than Vitollio & what's her face! LOL I think they should have went - but then again, I don't know much about dance (even though I watch so much of it!)

                      I am watching the results show now and those guest dancers sucked I thought. Ok, they were good, but were they enjoying to watch? Not really. They were doing steps. Isn't that what the judges are always complaining about for the dancers?

                      Paris - her solo was good. She's always been good, but something about her bothers me. I think it's her chin.

                      Tony - he's cute, but he's tall. Maybe when he has a few years to mature into his huge body, he'll be a little better. I enjoyed him sometimes and sometimes I thought he sucked big time. So I think he jsut needs to work harder.

                      Asuka - what the fuck is she doing? Seriously. That was the weirded solo I ever saw. It was like when Baby forgot the steps in Dirty Dancing and she started doing that weird dance. It didn't seem choreographed at all, or well.

                      Vitolio - he was good, not much to say, except he should take his shirt off more often. Holla!

                      Karla - again, what the hell? Was that choreographed or was she just doing moves? She moves well though and she's pretty, so those are 2 points that she'll always have.

                      Jonathan - his was good, some tricks, entertaining

                      Ok, I know it's been said before, but I HATE that we don't know some of these dancers! I wish they hadn't wasted so much time on the people who didn't make the top 20. I don't think it's fair to the top 20 that weren't followed early on compared to the ones that weren't. Cuz they have a built in following.

                      Oh and the Sean Kingston set - they should only allow guests to use past SYTYCD contestants!
