Tony + Paris: boring; not enough energy

2 Injera { 07.10.09 at 9:55 pm }

This “Jai Ho” mix is such a mess I can’t focus on the dancing. Can’t even pick up the beat. God knows how these guys are managing…

3 TDK { 07.10.09 at 9:55 pm }

Caitlin + Jason: bollywood style; good energy; i didn’t liked the music, but they did good

4 Injera { 07.10.09 at 9:56 pm }

Ha – TDK, looks like we have awesome Friday nights!

5 TDK { 07.10.09 at 9:57 pm }

Yeah, another 1.5 hours. Honeycomb, water, SYTYCD and rants, LOL, can’t complain.

6 Injera { 07.10.09 at 9:59 pm }

Another 1.5 hours? Wow… And I’ve already had my Magnum and am well into the wine. If there’s suddenly a comment along the lines of aljhgrytjhgddsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss you’ll know I’ve passed out.

7 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:05 pm }

LOL – alright.

Jeneti (spelling?) + Brandon: Foxtrotting; not my style, so no comment on technicality. But the final lift and spin was amazing.

8 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:07 pm }

LOL @ Mary’s botox comment.

9 Injera { 07.10.09 at 10:07 pm }

Oh, Mary! Botox indeed… Can they paralyse your throat, just a little?

Loved that final spin, but was disappointed that Brandon was clad. Jeneti (I’m going with your spelling here, TDK) is so cute!

Ashley + Kupono: Jazz; Kupono is an odd but talented dancer, i think he’s the dark horse. Crash dummies costumes. I quite like it, relaxing music, good ending. I can feel the story about two crash dummies playing when they’re not doing their job (crashing). Imaginative.

11 Injera { 07.10.09 at 10:14 pm }

Great story, but not sure that I prefer “jazz blades” to “jazz hands”, but that’s probably just my residual loyalty to Will & Grace’s Jack.

12 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:22 pm }

Melissa + Ade (a-day): Contemporary; LOL @ “things get touched”; Love the song – “Right here waiting”; she was natural, he was awkward.

13 Injera { 07.10.09 at 10:25 pm }

I guess 29 is old in dancers’ terms, but seriously, judges, Melissa’s not an octogenarian. Yet.

14 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:29 pm }

Kayla + Max: Samba; very nice; good looking couple. Too sexy, i wouldn’t want to be in their partner’s positions.

15 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:32 pm }

First judge (Adam) orgasm’ed and Mary screamed her head off.

16 Injera { 07.10.09 at 10:33 pm }

Totally distracted by that hot pink fringy dress and Kayla’s determinedly Paris Hilton sexyface…

17 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:33 pm }

Mary intermission message.. “Don’t go anywhere Australia..”
OK Mary, we won’t.

18 Injera { 07.10.09 at 10:35 pm }

Actually, Mary, I will – gotta check out the cricket and then the Tour…

TDK – will check back to see how they’re going!

19 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:39 pm }

OK Injera..

Backstage clips: quite silly; but i’m sure it’ll entertain someone.

20 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:42 pm }

OK Injera..

Backstage clips: quite silly; but i’m sure it’ll entertain someone.

Recaps of the couples dances.. very unnecessary.

21 Laura { 07.10.09 at 10:48 pm }

Melissa & Ade are my favourite couple! Beautiful dancing. Although I still think that couples who are lucky enough to pick out contemporary are fundamentally advantaged.

22 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:52 pm }

Paris + Tony: is in danger.. solo dances for them

23 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:53 pm }

Paris’s chin is very… very… long.. distractingly so.

24 TDK { 07.10.09 at 10:58 pm }

Oscar + ? bottom 3 couple

25 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:00 pm }

Jonathan + Kala also bottom 3 couple

26 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:02 pm }

Dance guests: wow, very intense.. liked it very much.

27 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:11 pm }

solo dances
paris’s – ok, nothing special

tony – boring, nothing special, he’s trying very hard to use his charm to cross the line

oscar – hanging in by trying to sell sexy image, bra and all

vitolio – strong, but why no shirt? i hope he doesn’t feel like he needs to go down oscar’s path

break..

28 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:15 pm }

hungry jacks ad – i only like their sundae, beats mcdonald’s anyday

29 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:17 pm }

solo dances:

kala – good, moves all over the stage

jonathan – acrobatic jump; he’ll stay in for cute points with the girls and rating’s purpose

30 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:27 pm }

Paris leaving

31 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:31 pm }

32 TDK { 07.10.09 at 11:32 pm }
