    I will now declare my 8 year long hatred for the group round. It's not "So You Think You Can Choreograph". I don't see how this round shows anything. It shouldn't exist.

    I will now not complain about it while it is happening.

    the word vacasway is punch inducing
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    It's the dance equivalent of a stress interview. I think it's the closest to the "it's the 6th week of comp and you just got assigned a partner you don't like." test that they can do.

    But it sux.

    After the penguins devour Mr. Popper's, I'll have them torture whoever came up with "vacasway."

    I'm guessing that the choreography round is done to make sure they can do their own solos? I don't think Natalie is any bigger than Donyelle, or at least, not by much.

    But again, these groups have a massive advantage if they have someone in their group who can choreograph. They will never have to choreograph for the rest of the show. I don't see why you would base so much on choreographing your own routine. I understand that they are trying to stress them out, but it still doesn't make sense to me.

    her outfit is not her friend. it makes her look like there is a goiter in her stomach.

    Good point. I have wondered why they haven't done something like give them a clip of some number from a movie or play or previous SYTYCD and say "make this into a group number", which is at least a jumping off point.

    Nigel loves these group round stress stuff. I think he thinks it makes for great TV drama since he does the same thing on AI.

    I see it more as "Can you work with a bunch of random people and showcase everyone?" Whether it's a fully developed choreographed routine, or just properly executed steps, the groups that achieve cohesion usually go through.

    Alexis would not have gotten this far if she was not Jeanine's sister.

    Jeanine is a significantly better dancer than her sister.

    I think Alexis might be a better contemporary dancer if you look just at technique. But Jeanine is better at performance, different styles (from what was seen here), and has that charismatic look-at-me quality. Alexis, at least the way they're editing it, also seems to be whinier.

    I love this music and this kitschy 60s choreo. It's so Austin Powers, in a good way.

    I don't understand why DC Chapman was upset.
    Er, not loving this routine, but the judges seem to love it.
