"So You Think You Can Dance" Summer 2009

Recommended Posts

I was really irritated by two things last night,

 

1.) Evan - ok um seriously who the heck is out there actually voting for this guy!? yeah is an ok dancer and it is cool he made the top 20 and all but IT IS TIME TO PACK YOUR BAGS! He wasn't even in the bottom! shitfan.gif

 

2.) Katie Holmes - I really didn't get all of the hype about her. don't get me wrong, I think it is great she donated to the charity and all that but SHE DIDN'T EVEN SING LIVE! and I might be wrong here but it really appeared to me like her whole performance was taped! I don't think she was performing live for the audience and I don't even think she was there!!!!!!!!! is she THAT big of a diva that she had to do it that way? she did look pretty though

 

 

other than that, I guess I am in the minority here but I was not shocked to see Jeanette go. The judges were shocked but I really never got into her that much.

I just feel sorry for the girl who has to dance with Evan next week. I don't hate him, but he shouldn't be in the top 6. He is going to bring her down. He is a good dancer, but not top 6 quality.

yeah girls, I'm feeling pretty bitter/disapointed about last night's show too. I wish they would do a Where Are They Now segment since they NEVER even talk about Sabra since she won, wtf is up with that? Do they hate her or something? They mention Joshua all the time! I googled Sabra a while back because I was bored and she's in some modern ballet thing, it's really interesting...why don't they ever mention this?!?! Argh!

 

Andi - I wasn't surprised about Jeanette either but I really wish it would have been Kayla instead...Kayla's a great dancer but there's some kind of smugness about her that just totally puts me off. angry.gif

LAME. That's all I can say. I was SOOOO disappointed with last night's show. Nigel hyped it all up and then nothing....

 

I did enjoy seeing Hok again and I loved getting to watch some of the favorite dances. Rewatching those just made me realize how sad this season is. The same caliber of dance is not there IMO.

 

Hubby and I were talking this morning about the show. We both wondered if Nigel has always done the "casting" thing for the show or if this year was the first year he decided to forego the best dancers and only pick those that he thinks the voters would like. I think this season was the first time I have heard him say that. Unfortunatley, I don't think he found a lot of dancers that connect with America (and Canadian non-voters. wink.gif ). Ironic.

 

I still can't help but wonder how Natalie would be doing (Katie's roommate that was cut early in Vegas.)

 

I'm not commenting on Evan. Enough has been said. I DO feel bad for him though. I would hate to be the person that continues to hang on as more talented people go home. It kinda reminds me of that poor red-headed kid on American Idol that one year. He actually looked relieved to go home because America was beginning to hate him. He was pulling a Sanjiya!

 

I agree that the 100th show should have featured past dancers more. Skip the Katie Holmes crap. If she isn't going to perform ON STAGE or actually sing and dance, then bring on the real dancers! I thought her number was a little too easy and I can't really give her props. Who knows how many cuts it took to produce that? I'm sure she shines on broadway, but for this show- I was disappointed to say the least. She did look gorgeous though!

I totally agree with this, I said that exact thing to DH last night when I was watching. Compartively, this season as been very disapointing vs. past seasons. Season 3 was amazing and Season 4 was good enough and at least had people with huge personalities that you could really root for (like Twitch and Joshua).

Again, totally agree with all of this. I don't know why the F they didn't put Natalie through, she was and IS just as good as Katee. rant.gif This show makes me crazy some days lol.

I wonder if Natalie will audition again? I think you can keep coming back until you reach the age limit or make the Top 20.

 

Whoever asked about judging, the dancers are eliminated only by votes now the judges can't save them. However, I think their comments are made to influence the people they think should stay. Nigel was all about Jason on Wednesday and was really picking on Evan. I've noticed the same type of comments with Melissa and Kayla.

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
