So You Think You Can Dance, Vegas, night 2  
"Your Top 20" and my thoughts on each .... with my faves starred and my ultimate faves bolded and starred!!!

1. Janette - She's good, but doesn't do anything for me, so I'm pretty meh about her.
2. Vitolio - No clue, only seen a few small moments here and there, so I have no opinion yet.

I love Cat.

** 3. Kayla Radamski - Ooh, I liked her from her first audition. Yay! That's one I like. WOOHOO!

Mia prefers male to female dancers. In other breaking news, water is wet.

** 4. Kupono - WOOHOO!!! Love him. Yayers!!!
** 5. Paris Torres - And she's on my list, woohoo!!
6. Jeanine Mason - No clue.
7. Ade ....? - No clue.
8. Karla Garcia - No clue.
9. Jonathan Patero - No clue.
** 10. Brandon Bryant - I think he's fabulous; whatevs Lil C and Mia. I liked him last year, and I like him this year. Bite me, Mia. And I am with Mary because this is NOT the time to be tearing these dancers down after all they've been through this week. Go Brandon.
** 11. Tony Bellissimo - I disagree with you on him, Gerrie, sorry. I really like him.
12. Max - He's good, but didn't grab me, maybe when the top 20 starts he will.
** 13. Caitlin Kinney - Yay!!! My favorite girl made it. Woohoo!! I knew when I first saw her audition that she was special; I hope she continues to prove that early impression right. She's just lovely.
14. Melissa Sandee - No clue.
15. Jason Glover - We've heard them talk about him, but haven't really seen him.
16. Ashley - No clue.

Sigh, why can they NOT highlight all of the top 20 at some point during the rounds? Geez.

17. Randi Evans - No clue. Again. Did we see her and I just so don't remember her?

SUCKS about Alex Wong. I love him, stupid boss not letting him out of his contract, but *sigh* I can understand. Man, oh man, oh man. Geez. OT: KELLY!!!!!)

** 18. Phillip - I do like him, I hope that he can be as awesome in all genres as his own.
** 19. Asuka - Yay!!!! Love her. She's so gorgeous and delicate, lovely and beautiful.

Aww, the brothers are tearing up, they know that this means one of them doesn't make it. Aww.

** 20. EVAN!! Kasprzak - I knew it was coming, but I was still worried, and when Nigel said Evan was through, I couldn't help but cheer with joy!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to the HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! EVAN!! Sorry for Evan's Bro, but, yeah it's all about the EVAN!! Love him, love him, love him!!!!

Nine out of twenty is a much higher number than ever I've liked pre-top 20, so this is shaping up to be an awesome season. And you know ... EVAN!!!! (I hope that he's paired with Caitlin or Asuka, or possibly Paris.)

I'm still shocked and bitter about Natalie.

I like most of your faves, though a couple I didn't recognize because I missed one city-audition show (stupid DVR didn't record it for some reason).

How predictable was it that it came down to the brothers for the last spot?

I definitely preferred Natalie over whatshername last year, but she didn't do anything for me this year, but I know how painful it is when someone you're rooting for doesn't make it. (I'm still hurting over Priscilla!!!!)

Sorry you missed a night, sucks when that happens. Yeah, the two brothers, oh, Nigel ... so predictable.

I might grow to like Tony. Who knows? I did eventually end up loving Ivan so there's hope. He does have an endearing personality. I'm just all about the dance sometimes.

So we have a lot of agreement this year. I'm so excited for the season to begin.

Me too. I can't wait until next week. I wanna know who Evan is paired with!!!

You seem interesting. I stumbled across your journal. Mind if we become friends?
Arabianarabian on June 6th, 2009 08:43 pm (UTC)
Sure. :)

I am overall really pleased with the top 20. I agree with you, about them not showing us more of the people in the top 20 so we can get to know them a little better but *meh*. I'm pleased.

7. Ade actually comes from a studio here in AZ that I used to compete against. I totally didn't even realize it was him until the end. Some of his competition solos I've come across on YouTube have been very impressive, so even though I don't like the studio where he came from, I might have to give him some love just because he's a home town boy.

13. I was really happy that Caitlin made it. I think she's VERY talented, and she's totally a lot of fun to watch dance.

18. I'm going to pull so hard for Philip. I only hope that he'll be able to do some other dance styles. It sounds like he hasn't had much of a dance background, so I hope he'll succeed.

19. Asuka is gorgeous! Has there ever been an Asian dancer in the top 20? I can't wait to watch her dance.

20. I kind of figured it was going to be Evan, but I loved both of the brothers from the beginning. I'm not sure if I saw him do Mia's contemporary, but since SYTYCD is a heck of a lot of contemporary, I hope he can hang in there. Even makes me so happy, and makes me want to dance.

Can't wait!!
