TOP 8, don’t hate!
Last week's SYTYCD performance night seemed to have a little more quality dancing than this week. However, Travis’ opening number was great! Love me some Travis.
I must agree with Nigel and say that the show was pretty flat until the 2nd ½.
I thought Janette + Evan’s Rhumba was good. Evan could still make his movements bigger and stronger. Janette was awesome the whole show. How she get her butt to stick out like that in the Rhumba?
I was so surprised to see Laurieann “boom-boom-kat” Gibson as a chorographer on the show! She’s better known as Puffy’s Making the Band chorographer. She’s SO crazy! Why was she wearing those pink headphones?!? Anywho… the dance for Jeanine + Brandon was good. I liked that it was just them dancing and not lots of partner stunts.
Melissa + Ade’s cancer dance was nice. However Iwas distracted by Melissa’s scarf. I kept hoping that it wasn’t going to fall off. But when Ade took her by her wrists and THREW her straight up I thought she was going to fly into the rafters! DAMN!
I LOVED Kayla + Jason’s monster hip hop routine by Shane Sparks. They both adapted the style so well. I think because they had a monster character to do it made the hip hop easier for them to process. When Jason threw Kayla on the ground and he was doing he knee swag I was like, “ok, now!” THAT was hip hop!!! And when Nigel said that he had been disappointed with hip hop this season, to me that meant Nappy-Tap sucks. That so called “smooth” hip hop they are doing is not getting it. And they did too many in a row. Nappy-Tap better do better on their next one or they are FIRED!
Also, I must add that I liked that Janette and Melissa mixed up their style in their solo. Smart thinking girls! Jeanine’s solo was of da chain!
I’m afraid for whoever goes home tonight.
