We're down to the last three weeks of All Star season. We deserve a new thread.
Double elimination this week leading into the semifinal.
Double elimination next week as well. No one can say the all-stars didn't get ample opportunity to show their best.
The first round of dances are a tribute to veterans - not sure how this is going to go.
Very nice from Shawn and Derek.
Well, we started with a song that IIRC is actually about somebody dying of an overdose, and I swear that was really, REALLY short.
Shawn and Derek's music choice had me looking for abused animal commercials, but it was a lovely waltz.
I'm sorry, when did Apolo go from cute to hot?
Something I'm not quite sold on with the legs but I like his frame/hold.
It's the night of inappropriate music choices! (Does anyone actually listen to the lyrics of things?)
if slytherin house ever opens a brothel in a USO, the madame will need kirsti's dress
watching kelly dance is like watching the hangman figurine come to life, all hard angles and stiffness
...Len is right because there was...I can't quite...I think maybe sometimes she was thinking too much? Or Val was overdancing her.
Also O SNAP, LEN!
Len to Carrie-Anne: "I have my standards .. she has none"
We have a new contender for dumbest song choice ever! Also, tell the singers that you need to learn the lyrics before live performances because muttering the one you screwed up is really obvious.
who covered gilles and peta up? they look like they are going to a dance in the footloose town
Gilles tied Shawn and Apolo with that mess?
Cheryl's dress is not doing her any favors.
It's quickstep. He SHOULD be wearing a tailsuit and Standard gowns don't have cutouts. (Thank God; I need ONE category of dance where my non-custom dress options aren't "matronly" or "Pussycat Doll".)
it's gilles and peta, i prefer them to be near naked, even if they get jury duty
on the flip side, i think melissa and tony look precious, they look like they came straight from their day jobs at Up With People
LOVE Melissa's outfit, especially her shoes!!
...Bruno, no. Maybe it's just because 1/3 of my coaching today involved 'what is wrong with Quickstep as she is taught' but, yeah, no, not so much. Better than Gilles, though.
...Shawn & Derek's samba with Mark.. WOW!
Ummm...okay. A lot of that did Shawn's stature no favors.
If I were going to pick a percussion-only song for samba, I'd go South American, not tribal African...
in my head i was hearing, shooting at the walls of heartache bang bang, i am the warrior. did not like.
That would have been a fun freestlye for Shawn an Derek, but I knew Len would hate it.
That would be a great routine for the Lion King, but it was not samba.
Yep, Len has it. I mean, the costumes aren't bothering me quite as much as...which ice dance team was it? But he's right, there's just not really any samba content.
Bruno: unless you're talking about a Spike Lee film, "jungle fever" is not appropriate. The costumes and makeup are already borderline.
Carrie Anne: This is Latin dance, not a college dance recital. Derek's Indian samba had more content than this.
That was just yuck - no jungle fever for me at all.
GOOD FOR YOU, LEN.
And if some of those Marines aren't going to find y'all in a dark alley for the "tribute" music choices already, they're just being nice. (But I kid the Marines. I knew a tac at VMI who was a very nice man and very friendly even if he did kill two people in 'Nam with an e-tool. I never knew if he just told the cadets that to scare them or not. But he was very nice when in his wife's shop in town.)
karina looks awesome in those red pants, most people would look like raw kielbasa
