I haven't watched that other show you mentioned.
I'm watching the show tonight and just wanted to comment as I saw stuff, but my computer sucks and took forever to restart and load up and now I'm an hour into it.
Anyway, here goes:
Sasha & Pasha (was that quick step? I forget) - Even though she's my favorite, I did not love that dance. I don't know what it was, but it just didn't connect for me. But I'm still super jealous of her incredible body.
Caitlynn & Ivan (hip hop) - Awww, I remember loving Ivan before! They were good and it was actually one of the times that Caitlynn stood out to me, so I liked it.
Jordan & Ade - I actually didn't love it as much as the judges did. I didn't like the music at all. Jordan was good, she's my 3rd fave girl. And I used to like Ade, but I didn't care for him in that piece. Maybe it was b/c he was so big and she's so tiny, I don't know. He just seemed like a big lumbering giant.
Melanie & Neil - holy ridiculousness. That was awesome. She's my second favorite girl. I don't like how her face scrunches up b/c I feel like it's kinda fake, but again, has nothing to do with dance. When it comes to dance, girl is flawless. And Neil...swoon. Oh and the way she dove into his arms? That was amazing. I had to rewind and watch that. She should enter the olympics for long jump or something!
Ricky & Anya - Eh. I like Ricky's personality and he's a good dancer and all that, but I wasn't impressed by that performance. Maybe I was expecting too much of Anya too since everyone had been compared to her and her hips for years, and I used to think she was great too, but I wasn't blown away. Maybe it was the choreographer...
Jess & Lauren - he needs to go home. He gets on my nerves so bad. Something about his face and he seems like he'd be a heavy breather cuz his mouth is always hanging open. I know those have nothing to do with dance, but I can't get passed it. I want him to leave. Plus I don't love the way he dances either.
Tadd & Lauren - prob my fave boy. Ihave a soft spot for the bboys or hip hoppers. Also, he's cute. I liked the dance and they were right on point with each other. And seriously, how hot were her legs! (Don't mind me if I'm focused on looks, I'm 2 glasses of wine in and a little free with my thoughts)
Marko & Ashley - (Sonya Tayek is my fave choreo) - I think I like Sonya's "angrier" dances better. I don't know why everyone is crying though. They were good and danced it well, but crying? I didn't get that level of dancing.
Caitlynn & Tadd - I never love the foxtrot b/c I find it mostly boring, but they danced it elegantly and did a good job.
Marko & Ricky - I love the boy/boy dances! Ricky surprised me by going so good, but Marko outdanced him. Ricky was too something and didn't get down into it as much as Marko did. But I really love the boy/boy hip hops, they tend to be the funnest.
Jordan & Jess - I actually really liked it. The things that usually bother me about Jess didn't. Except that he's a bit too short or makes the girls not look as dainty as I feel that they are/should. It's not getting great reviews which always cracks me up b/c usually I can't stand to watch Jess dance and this time I liked him and they didn't like him.
Sasha & Melanie - my two faves! And I'm actually glad to see them dance together, cuz I know I KNOW that Sasha is my favorite. She just never makes anything look like it's a dance step. It's so flowy and smooth. Yes, I think I have a girl crush in Sasha.
Also, on a total side note. How the frig tall is Kat? She towers over even the guys who you think are tall!
