So You Think You Can Dance – And Not There Are 18
WARNING: Do not make any bets on who will be winning this show based on anything I say, as I am officially a fucking dud.
First elimination night and I have been to be shown to be totally off base with my predictions. Here was I saying Jessie and Matt were likely to go top four. My jaw hit the floor when I they were the first couple to be put in the bottom three.
I thought it was one of the better routines of the night.
Will and Grace I was not so surprised about as they did tank at the end of their performance. Oh I did pick Ilona and Nick to be bottom three, but that was a bit of a no brainer. I feel sorry for them as they did not even get to dance much in their routine.
By the way rocking opening number by choreographer Kelley Abbey, and what a hard job for Jess having to pash Phillipe at the end of the routine.
Matt’s solo was not great but it is always tough for the ballroom dancers to do solos and look flash. This was the same with Will’s which was a solo tango and was a bit underwhelming. Nick’s was the best but was it mesmerising like some we have seen? No.
Jessie’s however was amazing. How the fuck did she end up bottom three? Are all the Jessie, Jessica, and Jess confusing the voters? Or is Matt just not connecting with the audience.
Ok I will make another prediction they won’t be bottom three next week, as her fans will start voting.
Grace’s solo was intriguing, but I would have liked to have seen her do more.
Ilona’s I thought was the weakest but at this point was unsure if they would flick one of the few hip hop girls.
I felt quite sad that Will was eliminated as I think he was a great performer and would have liked to have seen more of him. I was not unhappy about Ilona going, but I did feel it was a tad unfair because she was there through no fault of her own. And she has a right to be bitter and twisted about this for some years to come, as she now won’t have the opportunity to obtain an exclusive dance contract with Australian Dance Theatre.
Over the next few weeks we get to find out who the other potential contracts are with.
