    I'm sure Allison was recast this week because she was already assigned a partner and choreographer and perhaps which female all-star was off this week made plans that couldn't be changed or she didn't fit the style.

    When she was in the B3, she did not do a pointe solo, and Nigel called her out for it during elimination, IIRC.

    Raven was her name, and yes, he did call her out for it and said her not doing pointe was why they eliminated her

    There'd be a slightly different center of balance and pull on the legs. Getting recentered when you get off is different that it is on half pointe. (I can still do stuff on half pointe, but if I put on pointe shoes now I can't straighten my knees. ) Without a lot of rehearsal, it could be a real arm wrestling contest for a dancer like Alex to keep a non-pointe dancer on pointe.

    My bottom 3 this week would have been Melinda, Kent, Jose. Melinda was awkward. ITA that Kent was grinning at girls in the audience while getting smoked by Allison. Jose did his best and really surprised me with the partnering, but he was flat footed.

    Alex absolutely rocked. I knew hs solo would be good, but I couldn't believe how good he was with Twitch. ITA with those who said he's a professional among students.

    Love Billy's solos but he relates better to music when he's alone on stage. When he's partnering, it's like he's splitting his attention between his partner and the music, and he's distracted between the 2 and a little remote. I still liked his piece with Kathryn though. Just wanted it to be more.

    Robert is looking more like the dancer I saw in the auditions (when I didn'
    t get why they picked him) than the dancer I loved in week 1. Please step it up! And he needs better solos.

    I loved Ashley and Adechike this week. Ashley was lovely, and Adechike showed a ton of personality.

    Lauren was good, but ITA with genevieve who said that Neil seemed to pull her off. She was working it, but he did not contribute to the chemistry at all.

    darn, I'm actually not that excited about that, would have preferred the other. Although I'm glad that Allison's injury isn't bad.

    Thank Gawd!

    Nigel seems willing to tinker with the formula a bit (I thought originally this season's dancers weren't pairing up til the finale, but he's decided to do it earlier). I'm hoping this mishap makes him reconsider bringing other former faves for one-off performances, like the Alex/Melissa pointe routine someone suggested, or bringing back Benji or Heidi for a WCS, or Jannette for a salsa/disco. Would be great!

    Melissa was in the audience last week. This could happen.

    Janette is on tour with Burn the Floor, so I don't think she's available.

    It would be great to have either Heidi or Benji for West Coast Swing.

    Since there are only two girls to six guys does that mean there will be two guy/guy pairings?

    I think I saw her assisting Jean Marc in Robert's Argentine Tango... Is she on tour already?

    After that performance Janette said it would be her last time on season 7.

    The company just finished touring New Zealand and is now in Australia. She's listed in the current cast.

    On a totally separate note, for all those who loved Jesus in season three, here's an update, which maybe some of you already know. Last night I was channel surfing and stopped on Oxygen's Dance Your Ass Off. There he was as one of the dancers. I was a little bit , but I figure for a dancer work is work. Sorry, his partner was eliminated, so I don't think he'll be on again this season, but maybe you can find clips online.

    Jesus was one of my favorites and I was furious when he was voted off!

    Jesus was eliminated way too early.
