    I'm going to miss the first hour because of The Voice finale, but here's a thread, whee! I know there have been few spoilers this year because the shows are live, but anyone have news on this week's choreographers? I think someone said Kristin Chenoweth was the guest judge...

    Have fun, y'all. After last week's blatant machinations, I'm done with SYTYCD, just as I was with AI this past go around. I absolutely refuse to watch the "judges" slather and salivate of yet another ho-hum Ryan routine.

    I have a feeling that SYTYCD will get creamed in the ratings tonite. Moving The Voice to 8 was a smart move on NBC's part. I suspect many will stay for AGT. I'll probably use the Tivo to watch both at the same time.

    I want Ryan gone.

    Kristen Chenoweth as guest judge! She should be fun. But, I don't like how the guest spot has now turned into Letterman spot/SNL hosting gig.

    Sooo... I just figured out why they cut Iveta last week:

    There are now performance show group routines that aren't commented on but are taken into consideration on elimination night. If Iveta has been struggling in the group routines in general, which some have said (hidden at back, etc.), then maybe the judges decided to let her go last week rather than have her do badly in the group routine this week and likely get the cut this week instead.


    ETA: Group 1 -- four couples -- "Hit the Road Jack" choreographed by Tyce

    I didn't catch all the dancers and they don't seem to be divided by their established pairs.
    girls: Sasha, Ryan, Miranda, Clarice?
    boys: Tadd, Mitchell?

    Don't you love the pieces that say "tour number" in the description?

    Sasha and Alexander, contemporary by Dee C
    Piano prop
    But cheesy premise of guy missing dead girl

    I liked it a lot, premise aside.

    To me, Alexander made that piece and again the judges are ninnies. He grabbed me and controlled me with that performance, Sasha was beautiful, but not on the same plane for me. Alexander made that dance, more than the actual choregraphy, IMO.

    Agreed! And Kristen C basically said that. :cheer: :)

    Alexander dances the way Johnny Weir skates....with an introspective magic. I wonder if it translates better to the camera than watching from the audience. I think what they mean is that he needs to project that more. Sasha is a technically great dancer, but still lacks the fire of her sister...I'm hoping she finds it. I love them as a couple.

    Mitchell and Caitlyn -- Jean-Marc G samba

    No clue on ballroom so can't comment.

    I like this week's packages, but did we just learn that Mitchell's only been dancing for a short time? If he started at 15...?

    Mary thought both were spectacular. And had her ears blown out with the music. Irony? :)

    And they're doing real critiques!

    Mitchell's hips and body undulation are just :eek: gorgeous! He needs a little more development in the chemistry and partner relation, but the movement was just spectacular.

    I didn't notice her as much, but she seemed to be doing fine. :shuffle:

    I don't know what Mary is going on about, because I thought the hip action was weak in that. It should look effortless when one shakes one's booty, eys? That didn't look effortless from her. He was marginally better.

    Ooh, Nigel just blamed Jean-Marc for exposing Wadi's weaknesses last week.

    So who directed all the girls to do midair splits so we get a crotch shot from each during their intro?

    This could be the greatest dance routine ever, but "It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't got that Swing" is one of the most annoying songs of all time.

    eta: The routine kinda sucks as well....

    Miranda and Robert: Tyce Broadway "Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got that Swing"
    "Upper Class Working Girl" & "The Groovy Cat"

    Am I allowed to like Tyce's work? Maybe I have no taste, but I thought they were pretty awesome and the piece played well with their personalities and skill sets.

    Kristen loved it, so whew! Not just me! Apparently they were shaky in rehearsal, but brought it tonight.

    eta

    :rofl: Indeed it does happen!

    I'm sure the Tyce haters will come out, but that was spectacular to me, esp. her. That is totally Miranda's style, and he is just quirky enough to pull it off in his own little style. She was really fine.

    I've liked all the teams so far and am finding Cheno to be a really good guest judge.

    Oh goodie--not only the denim diaper commercial but now some power pissing baby. Seriously? Are they sure they have the right demographic?

    I <3 Melanie & Marco. And I love Lil C on the judging panel. Make Mary go away.

    Nice choreo and well-danced but nothing really jump-out-at-you in terms of music/choreo/dance. Yeah.

    I'll continue to be the anti-fsu and say I thought that was a good vehicle, but melanie and marko did competently but not that much more with it. :EVILLE:
