    Mark for the win!

    I'm really looking forward to this. I think I'm going to enjoy being able to blame the pro if a number isn't good. And I hated having someone I liked paired with someone annoying for week after week.

    My step father won't let me watch SYTYCD in the living room and doesn't accept "I need to snark live with FSU" as an excuse for why I can't just watch it when he's not home. SO I'm stuck in the computer room with the grainy cable.


    How annoyed am I that Billy got paired with Lauren and Tyce? So annoyed.

    Ugh. Billy and Lauren. I don't know whether to be happy to see Billy or sad to see Lauren.

    Hopefully this means he won't have to work with Lauren again.

    Cat's makeup is lovely. Her hair is a bit ugly in that bun.

    I love Footloose (shut up)- Billy and Lauren. Tyce's choreo. Billy better than Lauren.

    I'd love to see Benjie do a West Coast Swing with this, but I didn't really like this number much.

    I vote for that the latter. I don't like that at all.

    Commented during the fluff that Billy was going to dance Lauren off the stage and he just about did.

    Cat, as always, looks amazing.

    Maybe Tyce could have done choreo for Evan and Anna :lol:

    I came away from Nigel's criticism wondering if he had problems with the chemistry or was happy with it.

    That was...bad. On so many levels. I can't tell if they danced it badly, if there were some moments where they screwed up, or if the choreography was just awful.

    I think they judges are trying to be diplomatic because they know he's a better dancer than that and they don't want him in the bottom three, but they can't say it's great either.

    What was Tyce Diorio thinking? I don't think Footloose for either Billy or Lauren.

    Actually, after watching it, I think Evan and Anna did a better job with it.

    Why did they change the numbers? I don't think I like that either. This show isn't starting off well. And, how did they miss Ashley on her intro? Is that an omen?

    Cat has a line of jewelry that debuts on QVC thi Friday, iirc 4 est. So far tonight, her earrings are the only thing I have really thought about. I wonder if they are from her line?

    Spoiler question:

    Did Tyce choreograph 2 routines this week? I thought someone said this in another thread. If so, I'm already disappointed.

    I'm on the fence about them- they are a bit too fanlike.

    Yay- Sonya Mark and Christina

    There were some, err, interesting camera angles in that dance.

    Maybe I never noticed this, but when the frak did SYTYCD change to performing live from a Cylon Basestar? I keep expecting Number Six to walk out onstage instead of Cat.

    Billy/Lauren - Eh. Expected more from him. Par for the course from Tyce.

    Christina/Mark - Typical weirdness from Sonya Tayeh. IMO Mark outdanced her, regardless of what Nigel says.

    :swoon: for Mark.

    Christina needed to freeze just a bit more firmly, but she was a really good physical match for Mark. I found it charming.

    So, you are now in love with Christina? :lol: We probably will seen certain dancers benefitting in this way from being with a good or popular "all-star." Billy could be in trouble this week.

    Cyn, Nigel never could give Mark his due.

    I don't think she wants to vote for Christina. I think she wants to vote for Mark.

    Nappy Tabs description of the number they've done for Jose and Comfort sounds intriguing
    Ne-Yo- beautiful Monster

    Lighting and staging is a bit messed up.

    I liked it - except for Jose's solo bit. Comfort is great in her genre and Jose is a better emoter than breaker.

    For someone who hasn't been formally trained, Jose friggin' nailed that routine.

    Never been a fan of NappyTabs, but I liked this more than either of the previous dances.

    Jose has done things- like choreography- this week that he's NEVER DONE BEFORE!

    Except he did choreography last week.

    May I be stricken down by the goddess above for complimenting Mia, but her eye makeup is fantastic :swoon: .

    I no longer believe them when they try to make it seem like someone has no training.

    I really do not like this stage. And the shoddy camera work is driving me nuts!

    Is it me or does Napoleon look like a different person? Darker? Gained weight? Can't put my finger on it.

    I liked Christina/Mark. I didn't love it, but I liked it. I think if I had seen that routine in about four weeks, I would love it. She got the feeling right.

    I don't know about that. I never would have guessed that Jose does yoga. My sister is a yoga instructor (she's been trying to get me to do it for years) and I am amazed at how much control over your body you gain by practicing. Knowing that he practices, I am not going to be surprised about how far Jose can go in this competition.

    Nappy Tabs has been hitting the tween book section to come up with that routine.

    Addicted to Love- Florence and the Machine

    Adechike, Kathryn and Travis

    And a great number which really showcased Kathryn. :(
    Adechike did a good job as the supporting partner.

    Is Nigel giving everyone basically the same critique?
