    And these rehearsals, even the ones leading up to dress rehearsal and taping, are probably not "Okay, lets mark through the choreography, run it once or twice and we'll be done" rehearsals. I'd venture to say the pressure to dance full out, 110% the entire time, even in a rehearsal that's only an hour long, can be exhausting, doing that 4, 5, 6 days a week, and well, this is what happens. I seriously doubt the dancers are marking anything in rehearsals at all.

    I'd venture to say that, for the most part, these rehearsals are probably more intense than most professional or pre-professional or studio companies out there.

    And it's not just contestants getting injured either, we've had All Star casualties as well.

    I'd also be interested to know what kind of warm ups, if any, are given in these rehearsals, or if the dancers are responsible for warming themselves up prior to rehearsal. If they are responsible for warming themselves up, I'll bet some are going into rehearsals cold or virtually cold, at some points, and that could account for injuries as well.

    for anyone who ever wondered what a reality show produced by Agatha Christie would look like, here you are
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    What does this mean? Can you East Coasters please enlighten the rest of us. Billy could be dancing next week?

    Nigel said he was cleared "if" he felt he could do it but Billy knows his own body, etc... If he survives tomorrow's cut, he'll dance next week.

    The doctors cleared Billy -- he could dance if he felt up to it. He did not.

    I hope they don't hold that against him. I guess it depends on who else ends up in the bottom tomorrow. If Adechike isn't in the bottom, I think Billy may be toast.

    Well, if he's not getting the votes when he IS dancing, he's sure not going to get them for NOT dancing. Goodbye Billy. (((

    Okay, no matter how this routine turns out for Jose and Allison, I will always love Sonya for using the theme from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    Okay, what a way to hide Jose's crap dancing, put him on the edge of the stage and let Allison do 80 percent of the dancing...which she did fabulously.

    Well, more proof that Jose didn't do great, Kenny critiqued Allison instead of Jose

    I'm a few minutes behind you so I can ff the commercials. I didn't see "bad", I saw a choreographer working around limitations. Billy should have had that piece this week and he would have been able to perform.

    Robert and Lauren- Tyce's Jazz. I like his jazz usually. A seductive piece they say.

    Wasted Time- My life with the Thrill Kill cult

    They are a beautiful physical match. Robert does such a morph from a goofball to a magnetic dancer. Quite the contrast between this one and Jose's mess.

    Adechike- This woman's work. A really lovely solo. The leap/turn section was weightless.

    I'm really conflicted about Adechike, I LOVE his solos, but I've only liked one of his partner pieces.

    Well, Sonya has picked two really good pieces of music tonight. I was wondering when someone would use Janelle Monae.

    I don't know. Maybe they should give it to Kent tomorrow and prevent anyone else from getting hurt?
