After the Ice Melts

Tonight they are talking with the 16 competitors and showing some backstage stuff, new stuff mostly.

very good. I wonder when it was filmed.

It was obviously done after they knew the final result. In a comment from Sandra (about a "girls" practice with Kurt), I got the impression it was taped on the day after the final show.

That would have been the same day that Katia & Val appeared on George S's show.

The show was taped on Tuesday, the day after the announcement show, which was a Monday. Everyone partied like heck the night before at the wrap party! Hoping clips will show up on youtube for those of us outside of Canada - thank you in advance!

When PJ told his story about Violetta's pants I was thinking to myself "Could her pants really get any tighter?"

I confess that I too got teary at the emotional bits.

Always leave them wanting more - and I did - Christine barely said a word, Val didn't get a wrap up comment when all the others did at the end, etc, etc, etc. Of course I would not have wanted to sacrifice a second of what they did show either. I had expected them to go more into the physical toll - the injuries, the strains of being away from family, but I'm glad they didn't as that was covered a great deal during the competition already - good choice. Oh and good job Ron and Kurt as facilitators - didn't talk anymore than necessary to keep things moving along and on topic.

Interesting how it was pointed out that the guys all were getting "addicted" to the adrenaline high of performing for the audience. I don't think we saw that quite as much last year. The early emphasis on choreo and the presentation (ballet-not) lessons were obviously a good idea.

The show just reminded me how much I'm going to miss BOTB until next year. :wuzrobbed:

Val was :lol: in general. And PJ, "remember there was that show and they broke the trophy?" :rofl:

Out of all the things that were shared, I wish I could have gotten a look at JR's face when he opened up the door from the low lighted side of the bathroom to see Georges' looming over him in full Devil hair do in the full light outside of the bathroom...ROTFLOL!!!

That and PJ telling Russ, "I'm NOT putting my hand down there!!" when the buttons keeping his shirt buttoned to the underside of Russ' pants came undone and Russ was asking for help. :D

When Anabelle was talking about Georges not being able to keep a straight face and laughing during "bring back sexy" week, she said they had to retake the beginning of the number 30 times that day. In the clip shown, there was also three unidentified people substituting for the judges. Where retakes used like at CSOI in Hamilton?

P.S. CSOI is being televised tomorrow on CBC at 9:00pm.
