So You Think You Dance – The Top 6
Can someone sleep with Nigel Lythgoe so we can get Bonnie OFF the show? Tonight she was unbearable with her rabbiting on about what the routines storylines were. Are we a dumping ground for ex-wives of powerful producers?
Also can they give Natalie Bassingthwaite botox next year to stop her nose from wrinkling up when she is reading from the autocue?
Tonight was a big night for the dancers as they were starting to smell the money, and they were becoming a bit more uptight when they were listening to the judges comments. Again it was huge show and I don’t know how they rehearse it all in a few days.
All boys – Mantronix – King Of The Beats
Supple choreographed this cops and robbers routine where cleverly he designed it so the dancers were both the cops and the robbers. Considering Charlie is meant to be a hip hop specialist I thought Ben was the strongest dancer. Jason said it was time in the competition for comparisons, but someone obviously had not told this to Matt and Bonnie.
Jason Coleman basically told BJ he did not pop as hard as the other two.
Talia and BJ – Contemporary – Yellow – How How
Project Moda routine was fun, and reminded me how I used to love Yellow. BJ played goofy good. And Talia played off hand 50’s belle beautifully. Talia has not missed a beat since Emmanuel got the flick.
Bonnie picked up a low catch in a lift and raised it with Talia, said she was fine with it and thought it was fun, then Jason Coleman said “Come on I saw your face at the end of the lift….” then he said “Be real, this is reality television tell the truth.” WTF. Is he the only person left in the world who really believes this?
Jason also bitched about Project Moda’s routine saying there wasn’t enough dancing in it. He may have a point.
Charlie and Kat – Busta Rhymes – Arab Money
They got guest choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon from US SYTYCD in what they called a “ghetto chic” routine. What were they trying to say with routine that arabs are crims? Personally I found the song and the choreography and costumes to be slightly racist. Also got to be honest was not wowed by the choreography.
Jason Coleman gushed over Charlie and criticised Kat about poking her tongue out. Matt and Bonnie were just complimentary as usual.
Amy and Ben – Pase Doble – Jesus Christ Superstar – Overture
Jason Gilkison is the master, I expect to see him again on the US version of SYTYCD. The routine was amazing. Both dancers were great.
Has Bonnie been told by the producers that her role is to explain the story of the dancers to the audience. Jason Coleman said he had such a high expectations of the routine it left him a little flat. He thought the routine did not lift.
Talia and BJ – Lyrical hip hop – T.I. feat Justin Timberlake – Dead and Gone
Do NapTab do anything other than lyrical hip hop? Also does the camera man have a unhealthy obsession with Talia’s boobs? Anyway have seen enough of both. I just don’t think either of NapTabs routines tonight really hit it out of the ball park.
Bonnie thought it was top routine of the night. Is this something the overseas choreographers have in their contracts that they have to have their routines fawned over? Jason was just over the top routine, basically telling them it was the best routine of the series. Hold on Matt Lee did say it was the best routine of the series. It was cultural cringe at it worse. God what are they going to do if Mia Michaels choreographs a routine here? Canonise her? Not that that would be a negative thing.
Kat and Charlie – Tango – Daniel Bedingfield – Gotta Get Thru This
Kat playing sultry and Charlie playing hetero butch was going to be a big call. I loved the music and the choreography I just did not feel any passion between the pair, probably because the above mentioned issue.
Jason thought it was the best performance he had seen Kat give. When Jason was bollocking Kat for being off balance, Charlie ‘fessed up that this may have been his fault. Clever tactics to get the aw shucks isn’t he a nice guy votes.
Amy and Ben – Contemporary – Secondhand Seranade – Fall For You
Ame Delves routine was great. I still don’t see Amy winning the competition, and I suppose at this stage it is still anyones game to take out. Last year you knew it was a two horse race between Rhys and Jack Chambers and that Jack would probably take it out. But I do not have any idea at this stage who is the favourite. But I am not connecting with Amy but considering she has half the CFMEU voting for her she is shoo in for top four. And she probably does deserve to be there.
The Girls – Broadway Jazz – Wilkommen
Kelly Aykers had a me moment with a “it has to be clean, as it has my name on it” . Clearly Kelly was believing the hype the choreographers are the stars of the show as well.
I thought Talia nailed this routine, and outdanced the other two. I think Kat is going to struggle to make the top 4. Jason Coleman nit picked and then said that Talia won the routine.
Top four to be Talia, Amy, Ben and Charlie (as he has Dubbo voting for him).
