    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!

      I would have to agree with you, i did not care for this dance at all, I always feel like for me any of the ballroom dances are hit or miss with me, but i am also really jealous of her amazing 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.

       

      I really liked this one too, I love Ivan, and I thought Caitlynn did pretty good with keeping up with him

       

      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.

       

      I thought this one was ok, I like Jordan and Ade alot so I think that helped, when he flipped her over his head and she landed on one leg with the other one straight up I thought that was so awesome

      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!

       

      I am like Nigal said after this dance she is my favorite girl! I have loved Neil ever since his season, but I thought she was amazing, I do know what you mean about her face I am not to crazy about that either, but it seems like whatever type of dance she does it is amazing

       

      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...

       

      I really didnt like this one very much at all...

       

      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.

       

      I thought this is one of his better dances that he had done, I agree that he should be the next to go home, I think that he does weird things with his face when he dances, and Nigel (I think it was him) said that he did better this time, but I dont think so, that kind of stuff is fine when you are doing broadway dances but not every time

       

      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)

       

      I love Tadd, he is my favorite, I dont know what it is about him, he is definatly not the best technical dancer but I love him, I thought they did really well together and I really liked the dance

       

      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.

       

      I didnt understand why everyone was crying either! I mean if she wouldnt have explained in the begining what the dance was about I would have had no idea, so is it because she told everyone what to think about that they were crying, I am not to sure. But I thought the dancing was really good. And let me say that I am normally right in line when people get all emotional with the dances but not this one

       

      ___________________________________________________

       

      Caitlynn & Tadd - I never love the foxtrot b/c I find it mostly boring, but they danced it elegantly and did a good job.

       

      Again with the ballroom, they are hit or miss, this one was ok, I thought they did good

       

      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.

       

      I really thought they did a good job with this one, I feel like Ricky is kind of falling off compared to the other boys but I really think that this routine helped him out alot! I also think that Marko out danced him, but I really think this helped Ricky out alot compared to his other dance for the night

       

      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.

       

      I thought that this was ok, I really like Jordan, but I always think Jess looks weird when he is doing a lot of partner stuff, he is just too short

       

      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.

       

      I really liked this one a lot I am glad they got to dance together they are deffinenatly the two best girls

       

      Also, on a total side note.  How the frig tall is Kat?  She towers over even the guys who you think are tall!

       

      Haha, I know!



      Who do you think will be in the finale?

       

      I think it will be Sasha, Melanie, Tadd & Marko

          I think your guesses for the finale are what I would've said.  At least, those are my hopes b/c those are the ones that I like the best.

           

          I think Jess & Caitlynn should go home tonight.

            I agree, I really liked Caitlynn in the begining, but i think that everyone else has progressed so much and she really hasnt

              Did you notice how they put Marc (from a previous season) right next to Lady Gaga for her performace?  It was like, "look where you can be if you!"

               

              I did not agree with the girl that went home (don't want to spoil it for anyone).  But they got the boys right.

                Sasha won me over when she danced on the wall...That was a tear jerker.  However I love Melanie too... it was a win win for me this year.

                  I agree, I was really not that big of a Sasha fan until she did that dance on the wall, however I am really glad that Melanie won I thought she deserved it

                    I knew I was going to be happy with either Sasha or Melanie, but I would've preferred Sasha. I'm still ok with Melanie winning, but there was just something lacking in her dancing for me as opposed to Sasha's.  All in all, I think it was a really good season and I was happy with most of the people they sent home when they did.  I felt like they got most of the season right.

                      They totally got it right... I think Nigel said it best Melanie dances with her heart and Sasha dances with her soul.  Sasha has that "something special" like some sort of intensity that draws you in.  Melanie has the technique... I loved the number with her as a statue from the beginning.. she is a brilliant dancer no doubt!  I love them both, but you know what your right... Sasha deserved it.. That wall dance said things that she could never say out loud...and she was alll in!   dance is art and art is dance.. loveeeeee :)
