So who will go and who will stay......even if I don't vote for them??
I hope to heaven that Maks and Kirstie go down the humorous path while doing their dance because making people laugh and have fun will be the only thing that can save them from this terribly unsuited dance, lol. I HAVE to root for my girl Shawn, but I am really looking forward to seeing how everyone does with the dances!
ETA: BTW, did it seem like Sabrina misunderstood what the whole dance choice thing was last week? She looked horrified when she realized that it was Kirstie who got saddled with the Charleston. Maybe she thought she was picking it for herself?
Please let it be Bristol! After that it's going to be really difficult; I love them all! What a season! How do they top this? Seriously, how do they go back to the old formula? Maybe one more go at All-Stars then quit? I am really enjoying this round and am actually glad I don't vote.
Kirstie gets four 7.5 scores from the judges. I hate it when the judges give identical scores.
It was a really clever routine but still more mugging than dancing. It's impossible not to like Kirstie, though.
Thanks for this reminder. I just changed the channel to watch. I'm rooting for Shawn, too. I hope she does well tonight.
Mark: She did well BECAUSE YOU KEPT IT SIMPLE. Bristol didn't panic or turn into a deer in the headlights, because he didn't give her anything to panic about it. I hope that registers with him. (And ye gods, a BUNNY COSTUME? Good call leaving that out. Someone, please cut off Mark's access to the Halloween rental company...every season he seems compelled to do something bizarre.)
Kirstie: I loved it despite the very limited difficulty/speed, but was she looking a big haggard? Maybe I just saw too many horrible tabloid headlines at the supermarket today.
Please, PLEASE, tell me the "I skinned Cookie Monster and am wearing his pelt" outfit on Sabrina is just one of those 'rip off reveal' things...
And Bristol gets 32/40 with all judges giving her an 8. Why don't they show some originality in judging? And ouch to Mark's comment about "dumbing down" the choreography.
wow cookie monster is orange, and who knew he had a pimp
I have the feeling the judges are trying to leave it up to the viewers, so they don't vary the overall scores.
Okay, I admit to not remembering disco, but how is this really any different/edgier than a "Stayin' Alive" take?
Say what, Bruno?
Can Louis choreograph the Disco's for SYTYCD?
I have a question. Did they ask Kristi Yamaguchi, Donnie Osmond or Marie Osmond to come back and compete? I would have rather seen them than Bristol. Sorry, I feel Bristol is doing pretty good, but still??
In a just world Sabrina would score higher than Bristol by a lot. But it's not a just world.
Sabrina got 35.5/40 for a routine I really enjoyed. Took me back to my college days....
Tom mentioned that there would not be a results show next week....that the dancers would get a break. Does anyone know what that one is about?
is it because of the debate tomorrow?
I thought he said no recap show? So people would know to tune in an hour later. Might have heard it wrong though.
Sabrina morphed from cookie monster into big bird diuring that.
Best moment was watching kelly's expression while sabrina was talking.
Debate's on--no recap, just results at 8 instead of 9.
I find it VERY hard to believe that Cheryl (who owns a studio and teaches) has NEVER run into bolero. (Though hey, I'd take ANY excuse for a Bolero lesson from World Rhythm Champion Tony Dovolani, myself...)
Tomorrow's results will be from 8 to 9 because of the debate. Next week there will be two nights of competing with no results show.
Annnnd...this is too fast so she's basically doing International Rumba with one or two breaks that came from bolero (done too fast.)
Emmitt in the lead so far with a score of 36/40. Again the judges gave all 9's.
I don't know about the technical but that was awesome. Now, Paula is channeling her inner Bruno
Giles and Peta should have spent the week with Meryl and Charlie. That bollywood was missing a lot of authenticity, I think.
What does Aladdin have to do with Bollywood?
wow Gilles I LOVED that so great they got a 9.5 and two 10's.. yeah don't care how authentic it was hot
39.5 for Gilles and Peta....Len gave them 9.5. Is there any dance that Gilles can't do and is there any outfit that Peta can't wear?
Melissa and Tony's jitterbug scored a 37. It is so nice to see Tony so happy this season. After struggling through so many "stars" who can't dance at all (think Kate Gosselin) he deserves this success.
I really am hoping for Tony this season, though.
However, I think Shawn and Derek are going to run away with this episode....
I think this season is going to come down to Gilles and Shawn -- again. And I have to say that Shawn is out-dancing him so far... IMO
And they did. Holy smoke. Obviously as an athlete Shawn has a leg up (as it were) but she is really bringing the performance quality!
(And watching Derek flirt with Michaela was hilarious.)
My little Shawn has grown up...I'm so proud of her!
39.5 for Shawn and Derek. Again Len gave the 9.5
wow for Shawn I'm not usually a fan but she is making me one.. great job
I just think its so incredible how confident of a performer Shawn has become. Her first season, she was so awkward and shy and it took a lot to get her to loosen up. But she just rocked that mambo like she's been dancing her whole life! So happy for her.
I thought it was a borefest snooze...
Apollo did a decent job.. but to me he just doesn't have the spark this year..
Apolo and Karina score 34.5. Karina had a slip and was distraught.
