So You Think You Can Dance – Final Six revealed.
The show started with a Project Moda choreographed cheesy group number which was a cross between jazz, and swing. It appeared to be set in the 1930’s depression era. But I could have misinterpreted the whole dance as I started losing concentration half way through.
Natalie Bassingthwaite shimmied on stage looking very glam, she always looks so much better when she is flashing those mega fake tan legs of hers.
In contrast Matt Lee looked like he had just rolled out of bed.
I had not realised there was going to be a revival of the Love Boat until I saw Rhys dressed up as Captain Stubbing, I am not sure if he would make a good Captain, but the part of Gopher would be perfect for him.
Graeme also revealed that if the So You Think You Can Dance dream ends he could consider auditioning for Australian Idol, with a surprisingly nice singing voice.
First the top four girls were bought on stage, and it was no surprise that Vanessa and Rhiannon were in the bottom four.
Again with the boys it was unsurprising that Henry and Graeme were in the bottom four.
Bonnie Lythgoe and Matt Lee both agreed Australia had got it right.
One Republic were the special guest band tonight. They were obviously trying to prove their musical credibility with the variety of instruments on stage, but the song had the most repetitive chorus since Kylie Minogue’s hit Breathe (It Won’t Be Long Now).
All four solos were great, however it was ironic that Rhiannon’s and Henry’s were the most impressive.
Then it was revealed Rhiannon was eliminated from the competition, probably the one week where she didn’t deserve to go. She said in her closing speech that her dream was to get a recording contract, so maybe she will audition for Idol? I am sure a lot of people will miss seeing her toned abdomen each week, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a Facebook page dedicated to it.
Matt Lee obviously thought Vanessa was going when he said to Rhiannon “I thought you had another week in you”
The shock of the night was Henry being eliminated. Did the tears the week before lose him some fans? Is Australia still so unreconstructed that we don’t like to see men cry?
Anyway his recap revealed just how bad his long hair looked, and just how good he looked with a hairy chest.
I am sure both of these dancers will dance professionally in the future.
