So You Think You Can Dance Australia – Talia and Loredo Love Story

Last week a few of you said that Talia dancing to Love Story was one of the most memorable dances from So You Think You Can Dance Australia  and You Tube was my friend it really was amazing. See above.

Even though we don’t have this series here, the US version is currently showing on Channel Eleven at 7.30pm Friday nights.

Tonight they go to Las Vegas to start whittling the dancers down to the top 20.

Jack & Kate dancing to Singing In the Rain from Season 1 was also fantastic! here’s the link

2 Izobel2 { 11.23.12 at 10:59 pm }

Watching US Dance now. Gee it’s an awesome show. It’s also a show where the judging panel have never annoyed me.

Have always watched it on Channel 11 or Channel 10. And I miss the Aus version too.

3 Morgan { 11.23.12 at 11:08 pm }

Ch10, PLEASE bring back the Australian version!

4 Eliza { 11.23.12 at 11:44 pm }

I second that, Morgan.

5 Izobel2 { 01.09.13 at 6:10 pm }

If anyone is watching the US Version that’s curently on Eleven (and thanks Channel 10 for now putting it on Saturday nights too now)… well there was an AWESOME routine featuring current dancer Cyrus and “Allstar” Comfort. Google “Cyrus & Comfort Season 9 Top 6 dubstep routine”. It was the dance of the season if you ask me.

It’s great to watch the Top 10 perform with seasons past Allstars. Benji Swimmer was on also, another great performance.
I’m not sure if anyone’s even watching it. But I am so I’m happy with that ! :-)

6 Daisy { 01.09.13 at 6:45 pm }

Izobel, I haven’t watched this since the first season but I will check it out. I did ballet for 5 years when I was young and I love to dance.

7 Izobel2 { 01.09.13 at 10:31 pm }

They are down to the Top 6 now Daisy and there’s a ballerina still in called Eliana. She’s lovely.
I love to dance but have no training… Closest I’ll get is when I start Zumba in 3 weeks!

8 Daisy { 01.09.13 at 10:37 pm }

Izobel, duzn’t madda, we just shake da boody.

9 Reality Raver { 01.10.13 at 8:10 am }

Izobel2 – The one on Eleven on Friday nights is the last season. I had not realised TEN was doing the All Star season on Sat night will watch this week.

My new years resolution is to have a better eye on the tv guide this year.

10 Izobel2 { 01.10.13 at 9:02 am }

No no RR… Friday night and Sat night are the same season.. they’re just playing the season two nights in a row. So over the last 2 weeks we’ve had 4 episodes in a row. I only found out by accident.

Since the Top 10 (I think) they’ve had a contestant performing with an Allstar (dancers from previous seasons). Which is fabulous as the quality of dancing goes through the roof. Plus I just love Twitch.

11 Daisy { 01.12.13 at 2:24 pm }

Izobel2 I took your recommendation and taped last night’s episode. I saw a bit and wanted to start dancing in my loungeroom.
Also taped NZ’S top model.

12 Izobel2 { 01.12.13 at 3:46 pm }

Hi Daisy!
I was thinking of you this morning when I watched it!
It was the final 4 last night and the GRAND FINAL IS ON TONIGHT so make sure you tape that as well!
There was a gorgeous ballerina piece as two of the final 4 (a guy and girl) are both ballerina’s.
NZ Next Top Model was the semi final and the Grand Final came on after it. They are repeats as it’s already been on a year or so ago, but still entertaining, if you are into NTM shows. There’s something about this season though, to me none of them are really model material, but then – what do I know about modelling – I’m a 37 year old mum of 3 that couldn’t model to save herself!

13 Daisy { 01.12.13 at 4:42 pm }

Izobel I glimpsed the ballet duo. I will watch tonight. Hadn’t seen NZ top model before. I was trying to watch this morning with hubby going non-stop, “She’s ugly. She’s ugly”.
I had to remind him it was top model not Miss Universe. They don’t have to be pretty. Danielle looks like she’d rip your head off.

14 Izobel2 { 01.12.13 at 5:08 pm }

Danielle’s friends told her to go on it. I think if she smiled once in her whole life she’d faint. She’s the most un-model model i’ve ever seen. There was this chick called Dakota on there who had the worst attitude ever. My husband would say the same thing. The models are quite peculiar looking on this show.

15 Daisy { 01.12.13 at 5:26 pm }

I have been watching since about 1/2 way through so I saw Dakota. I like watching the top model shows and the Bachelor.

16 Izobel2 { 01.12.13 at 9:49 pm }

OMG Daisy you and I could b best friends! Have seen nearly all bachelor and bachelorettes! Haven’t seen emilys season yet. I read most US recaps and love bachelor pad too! Did uc ashley and jp got carried a couple of weeks ago! Such a spunk he is!

17 Daisy { 01.12.13 at 10:18 pm }

OMG Izobel! We are! Sometimes it’s a bit sad when the poor girl or guy lets their guard down though and then gets dropped. I guessed Emily would be high maintenance. I didn’t know about Ash and JP. They were so cute. What about that awful Bentley and that evil Courtney. They should hook up.
Saw Danielle win NZ top model this afternoon. Rolf still kept going on “She won’t make it. She’s too ugly”. Am going to watch so you think See if I can get away with it with Rolf sitting there. He usually gets sucked into all my TV shows and has even got into RR now. I fI want him to pick up his undies from the bathroom floor I will write it here.
BTW have you watched Friday Night dinner (ABC Fri night) I think you might like it….quirky pommies.

18 A.P { 01.12.13 at 11:48 pm }

What’s this Friday Night Dinners about? Must check it out.
I’m another tragic person who likes The Bachelor ( but not the bachelor pad for some reason ) and I love Australia’s Next Top Model, Alice was my favourite and I love how Sarah stuffed up announcing the winner the time before last.
I would have watched the New Zealand version if I’d known it was on, I like to watch them from the beginning.
I’ve seen some of the American ones and an English version with Elle McPherson as the host.
Looks like I will have to check the tv guide more carefully so I don’t miss anything.

19 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 12:08 am }

AP I have only seen a bit of Friday night dinner but it seemed funny, in an odd way. It looks like it might be worth a go. It was a bit like the Inbetweeners but tamer.
Izobel …what have you done??? Rolf and I both watched last night’s So you think…. (he liked it too) and I have recorded tonight’s. I really enjoyed that rumba on Fri nights show. I wish I could pole dance. Only because it would mean I’d have great abs.

20 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 12:15 am }

If you can catch it, Would I Lie to You is funny. It’s on ABC about 8.00 I think but I’m not sure what nights.

21 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 12:32 am }

I just heard that new Peep Show episodes would be starting Thurs 9.30 on ABC. I don’t know if they will be as good as the originals and be warned it is rude.

22 Izobel2 { 01.13.13 at 10:58 am }

Morning Daisy! What a shame that SYTYCD is now finished… it would’ve been nice if you could’ve seen the whole season.
Thanks for your other tv news. I’ll do a search throught the tv guide later today and tape everything you mentioned.
AP if I c that NTM is on again I’ll let you know.
Daisy with regards to Bentley – how HOT was he but what a truly awful person. Yes he and Courtney would’ve got along well… I think her and Ben F are still together, goodness knows why!
You should watch Bachelor Pad! 2 seasons have been on here already. AP doésn’t like it though! It’s not all nice and fluffy like the normal season, and it doesn’t go as long, but there are lots of past contestants on there and it’s very entertaining!

23 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 11:22 am }

Hi Izobel What SO You am I watching then because it’s still got four contestants. It’s a US version. I thought last nights would be a repeat of Friday but it was different.
As for Ben and Courtney, I couldn’t help but check from time to time and they split acramoniously. Not surprising that Ben would eventually wake up.

24 Izobel2 { 01.13.13 at 4:01 pm }

Hi Daisy!
It’s the same season of US Dance on both Fri & Sat nights.
It used to only be on Friday nights but for the last 3 weeks they’ve put an extra episode on Sat nights too.
And yay about Ben & Courts, last I read they were still together but yeah just checked and they split in Oct. Maybe he’ll be the Bachelor again like when Brad got to go on there twice. Not that it did him any good!
Friday night was the Top 4 (2 guys and 2 girls).
Saturday night’s Grand Finale was choosing the winner (one girl and one guy) out of the final 4. But as with all the US Grand Finale’s they bring back all of the Top 20 and usually each one of them performs one of their best routines from the season. I’ve only just started watching it now so I don’t know who wins yet. (I was out to dinner last night but still managed to send you one message much to the dismay of the guy I was with who thought I was on Facebook !!)

25 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 4:48 pm }

Do you think Ben would go on a third time? He was Ashley’s second choice after JP, and got the boot when Courtney had finished with him. Poor Ben maybe needs to try a different show. Oh by the way wasn’t Vienna horrible. How did she get chosen? Isn’t it fun and annoying at the same time when there is a horrible girl and someone throws themselves under the bus by trying to let the guy know. It usually ends up with mascara streaming down the informers face and a big cat fight back in the house. Miaow!

26 Daisy { 01.13.13 at 11:41 pm }

Oh Izobel….how stunning was Tiffany ‘s favourite routine to The Power of Your Love. Pretty, perfect and breathtaking.

27 Izobel2 { 01.14.13 at 2:12 pm }

Oh yes Daisy that routine was a highlight of the season. That’s why she got to dance it again at the Grand Finale. Stunning.

And yeah you’re right, Ben F probably wants to get away from the whole Bachelor saga… back to Sonoma and his wine for him, try and meet a local girl or something!

Ashley sure did pick some crazy men! Ames went on to Bachelor Pad, as did Vienna (yes she was indeed a shocker)!! Vienna and Jake were on Bachelor Pad together even though they had had that awful breakup. So of course the team at Bachelor threw them together again for some fireworks! She was dating Kasey (from Jillian’s season – the guy that got the “guard and protect” tattoo on his wrist).. They were the “power couple” on Bachelor Pad. He is just like Vienna though (awful)… and they aren’t together anymore either. Wonder why!
Every week I check Go! as they played about 6 seasons in a row on weekdays for 2 hours a day. It was great!

28 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 3:01 pm }

I watched a bit of the latest BP. I saw that whiney/crying girl and her partner were 2nd.

29 A.P { 01.14.13 at 3:15 pm }

What about that Vienna! Talk about white trash, it seemed like everyone except Jake wanted her gone.
At first I thought well what a nice guy, he obviously sees something in Vienna that no one else did and maybe they will make a go of it, but no as usual they broke up like eveyone else.
Izobel2, I will keep an eye on Go for the next season of The Bachelor.

30 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 3:36 pm }

I was so surprised when Jake had the choice of Cia (name something like that), the horse girl and Vienna and chose Vienna. I thought What is WRONG with you???? Are you MAD???
I really liked that blond girl that pulled out to go back to work, oh Ally ( I am probably getting my seasons confused). But what was that really about? And saddest moment was when Emily was chosen over that pretty, really rich brunette. That was cruel how jilted she was. You fans will know who I mean.

31 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 3:39 pm }

They should put Ben on Survivor and see if he can get lucky.

32 Izobel2 { 01.14.13 at 3:43 pm }

Gia is the Cia girl!
The horse girl – Kasey B? She of the lovely eyes. She was gorgeous and one of my faves.
Alli – yeah she went back to work and pulled out. Then became Bachelorette anyway.
And Emily beat Chantal O (not to be confused with the other Shawntel funeral bird)- who was very concious about her body as she wasn’t a toothpick. I thought she was beautiful anyway.

And AP – Jake being blinded by Vienna was exactly the same as Ben F being blinded by Courtney. I don’t know who I liked least out of those 2.

And yes betwen the 3 of us we must keep an eye out for Emily’s Bachelorette season and also one of the guys that she dumps is the next Bachelor. Neither have been on here yet.

33 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 3:54 pm }

Courtney, easy. Worst, vilest spider web spinner ever. And her nasty mouth-to-the-side whenever she spewed her cattiness. Vienna was horrible but if you put them in a house together Courtney would eat Vienna. There was another maneater, the one that got the blackeye. Izobel you are good at remebering the names. I thought Gia was quite the lady, although I was a bit annoyed that she wore spike heels on a picnic and had to be piggy-backed. If I was a guy I wouldn’t choose a girl thatt didn’t dress SENSIBLY. Ha ha like that’s going to happen. Like those girls that have to hobble across the lawn in a strapless dress (that they keep hoisting up) and stilletos on Farmer Wants. If I was the Mum I’d be saying choose a sensible dresser son.
I will catch you girls when The Bach is on and we will have a good laugh.

34 Izobel2 { 01.14.13 at 4:01 pm }

What I find funny is they spray the whole of the Bachelor driveway and front entrance with water because it “looks better” on opening night, and all these stick insects get out with their flowing dresses on and they’re instantly ruined! What about Fang Girl. And what about The Mask. He should’ve left it on. And what about the bloke that got so drunk on the first night.
Yes Courtney would eat Vienna. Then she could say “winning”… like she did. Grr she made me mad.
Yeah Michelle Money got the black eye. Goodness knows how she got it though!
Michelle Money was actually the girl who warned Ashley about Bentley. But did she listen… nope.

35 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 4:06 pm }

I was watching something recently, can’t remember, maybe CSI Miami or something and blow me down I swear fang girl had a small speaking part. I’m sure it was her minus the fangs. If you can recall her name I’ll google her and see.

36 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 4:07 pm }

Remember fang girl also withdrew so maybe she just wanted to get work.

37 Izobel2 { 01.14.13 at 4:21 pm }

Her name was Madison. I just googled Madison fangs bachelor and her name is Madison Garton.
I can’t belive she was on a show! When I googled her it says she is a “model/actress” so it’s no wonder you saw her. Obvioulsy wore the fangs to be remembered!

38 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 4:36 pm }

You guys… I wish we could go for a ‘coffee’. We could wear RR tee shirts to recognise each other …stop Emma I’m not being serious on the tee. Good idea tho’. Free advertising.

39 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 4:41 pm }

Oh and if we did meet up we’d have to notify
Border Security (some of us would have to fly)
and A Current Affair
to cover the trip. What does Emma think?????

40 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 4:47 pm }

And if that show happens, bags not being the one who cries all the time.

41 Anonymous { 01.14.13 at 6:12 pm }

That would b fun Daisy :)

42 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 6:42 pm }

And I would throw my Zumba outfit in my bag and come with you.

43 Izobel2 { 01.14.13 at 7:13 pm }

We could chat by day and zumba by night… and watch loads of shows in between of course!

44 A.P { 01.14.13 at 7:27 pm }

I’m with you if my comment goes through

45 Daisy { 01.14.13 at 8:36 pm }

Thought you might be up for AP.
