I get that people are outraged and all by what happened, but I can't muster much at this point because it hasn't been renewed since my outraged frustration over Cedric being kept on over both my beloved Ricky and Jimmy last week.

Anyhoo, thoughts on last night's elim .

I like Neil, I admit it and he made more of an impact on me than did Jesus, who I liked, but I liked Neil better. So I'm glad he's safe, I really thought he'd be the one gone. Lauryn? Can go. Yesterday, last week, before the top twenty. I honestly think the problem in their partnering is her, not him. There is something SO stand-offish about her and I think that affects the performance. Gee, Nigel, maybe Neil was overselling it the night before to make up for her lack of sell-age, period.

Sadly, I'm not surprised by Cedric. After that speech last night? Of course, he's safe. America. Sigh. But the ultimate fault lies with the lame-ass judges. They messed up last week by keeping him over Jimmy (and his outstanding solo) and even more so the week before by getting rid of RICKY!! and the most so by putting a one-trick pony (no matter how well he does his one-trick) through, especially based on even the little we saw of the other dances he did in the prelim round.

I honestly cannot understand how they justify keeping Lauren on the show, or how she got onto the show in the first place. She's pretty unimpressive in both contemporary/modern and hip-hop, which are her two specialities. I think it sucks that Cedric keeps getting saved, but I can at least understand the reasoning because he does actually do something outstandingly well. So far she's a standout in nothing, and I've danced with people who are far more talented than she is who I know auditioned for the show this year and got cut.

Thank you! She's okay, but she's just not that good. And the fact that they even said they wanted to be careful to not show favoritism. HAH!!!!! Right, I agree at least Cedric is amazing at what he does, her? It's not even just her dancing, she's not very likable. She's cute in a 'I'm so awesome and adorable' way that it's not endearing. I really do like Neil though and I'm really afraid that SHE'S rubbing off on him badly and it's effecting perception. I was actually really impressed and surprised by how good Neil and Sabra looked together in the Tuesday opening dance.

Hee - well you know my thoughts. Jessi MUST have been pre-doomed (though then you would think the vote was unanimous) because there is no way under the sun that she had the worse solo.

As for the guys - I'm still upset. Still.

Yeah, you'd think it would have been unanimous. It's just all weird. I mean, Nigel was really cold, even Cat seemed taken aback.

You're still upset? I'm still upset about Ricky!!! and that was three weeks ago. I so know how you feel.
