Natalie Bassingthwaite admits she was crap in the first few weeks of So You Think You Can Dance.

In an article here on the Daily Terror website Natalie Bassingthwaite admits her performance on the first few weeks of So You Think You Can Dance was under par.

She said:
“In the first few episodes I was absolutely petrified and it obviously came across,” she said at Redfern CarriageWorks where the series is filmed.
“Some of the criticism did hurt, it did make me feel I shouldn’t have done this.

“But I never went out there to say I’m the best host, but you know – I’m having a go.

“So I got through that moment and I’m happy with how I progressed – if you strip it all back and be true to yourself, that’s what works the best.”

We all remember the weird stoned autocue eyes, and stilted repartee, however she has improved in leaps and bounds and does look more comfortable in the role.

I like her honesty.

Channel Ten taking show cross promotion to a new heights by revealing Big Brother contestants on their other programs this week.

Obviously Channel 10 think that the Big Brother viewing audience is desperate to know who will be going into the Gold Coast compound next week by saying that the contestants will be revealed across other top rating Channel 10 tv programs this week.

The first inmate will show their face in a reel to run on So You Think You Can Dance tomorrow night, followed by the second and the third housemates being announced on Bondi Rescue and The Biggest Loser respectively.

I think I will just wait to get the information off the Big Brother forums.

Simon Cowell Thinks This Year’s Idol’s Lack Personality.
As we know Simon Cowell does speak the fountain of truth.

He said in article to Variety American Idol cast lacks personality as exemplified by how they have presented themselves on the program thus far.

“They are giving very safe answers to questions, making safe song selections,” Simon said.

“We are not getting a sense of who they are. We have to try to pull it out of them more.”
Simon also said Michael Johns’ elimination, which was a shock to many – including the singer himself, shouldn‘t have been so unexpected.

“You cannot deliver an uninspired performance at the top of the show,” Cowell said. “And you can’t be up there imitating another singer.”

I know Simon it makes you long for Danny Noriega to be back on the show. Maybe the voting public cannot handle anything other then bland?

Speaking of bland here is some post elimination tidbits from Kristy Lee Cook

Natalie is improving, and is more natural than earlier on in the series, but those weird stoned autocue eyes, and stilted repartee still make an appearance more than I’d like. At times she just yells into the microphone and/or speaks really really fast, I think that’s more annoying. God knows I would be ABSOLUTELY CRAP in her role, so I feel for her. Comparisons with Cat Deeley are inevitable, aren’t they? I am rather enamoured with Cat. Ramble, ramble!

I noticed the weird eye look and the lip snarl reappearing a little bit tonight.

Cat Deeley is brilliant she mixes warmth with sexiness and sass.

If Natalie did not sign on for next year I would not be heartbroken.
