But, it doesn't seem like they keep ballroom guys around long.
I was ok with Ashley being eliminated. Her solo really didn't have much substance and her other routines hadn't been strong enough to compensate. I am not an Auska fan like I thought I would be during the auditions. I'm ready for her to head home soon. Her dance was really pretty and really technical but the only personality that I get is bitchy diva. Caitlyn at least has a goofy personality and she can laugh at herself.
I'm excited to see what will happen next week! I wonder if there are spoilers, like what kind of dance they will be doing or who the choreographer is...I'll have to go investigate!
Oh and I love that they are featuring professional dancers in their genre. Musical guests have not been impressive so far. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga were fun, these people not at all! I don't even know their names! That girl last night was TERRIBLE! I don't know why they bothered to even put a mic on her! Milli Vanilli did a better job lip syncing! Ashlee Simpson did a better job!
I agree that the 3 guys in the bottom shouldn't have been there. I really liked Max, but you are right about them cutting the ballroom guys early. They have cut all the ballroom guys in the beginning from the past couple seasons I have watched. I was disappointed that Ashley got cut. I thought she was pretty good, but didn't have a chance to show what she's got. I'm not crazy about Asuka, I would have rather seen her gone. I liked most of the performances on the first episode, but haven't been too crazy on the performances on the other shows. I don't know if the dancers are just not good, or if it is the choregraphy. I usually tivo the show, and am glad because I have been fast forwarding through the singing performances. They have been awful!!
