'Dance' 6/29 Results  


That Jessica and Jaymz were in the bottom three was just WRONG! Plain wrong, personality is all well and good, but this is a dance competition. How could that amazingly exquisite performance be in the bottom three!?!? I'm just at a loss.

Sigh, at least Jessica is safe. I think she's a delightful, wonderful dancer ... my favorite female after Natalie (and before Donyelle).

The girls:

Ashley -- I thought she could have done more with her solo, but she was good.

Jessica -- was wonderful ... as usual. Her moves, kicks, etc. were timed to the music. Lovely.

Aleksandra -- She deserves to go. I just was not impressed and with the exception of her first routine, she's been a disappointment me for in every other performance.

The guys:

Ben -- He's just breathtaking. I LOVE to watch him dance.

Jaymz -- As much as I adored their performance and don't think they deserved to be in the bottom three, I think his was the weakest male performance by far.

Dimitri -- Whatever may be the case with partners, Dimitri is just amazingly beautiful to watch. Just wow.

Obviously, I agreed with the choice of Alex to go and while I still think that Heidi/Ryan (for that performance) should have been in the bottom three, as a dancer, neither deserved to be there, so I'm okay with that. However, I am shocked and appalled that they cut Ben! Ben, a marvelously beautiful dancer with a charisma that can't be bought. So Jaymz is taller and beefier and hunkier, Ben's dancing is a thing of beauty. That's just wrong.

Grrr.

While we don't agree on everything - I agree about Ben. I really wish he wasn't booted off. But his lack of prep on his solo was glaringly obvious to me. Pirouette after pirouette with no pacing or thought to what the music was - ahhh, well. I do like his personality - so much more than I did at first and I will miss him.

I thought Jaymz's solo was also very weak but I'm sure the judges were looking at everything and Ben's previous dances have just not been that impressive. Still I blame last night on their horrible choreographer. That was the lamest, weakest hip hop I have ever seen. So, so bad - I saw number this past week that would have blown him so far off the map he wouldn't have been able to touch ground for a week. Terrible choreo, just terrible. And I'm not even going to mention how bad it was for Martha and Travis.

Still Dimitry gave a great solo - different from last week, powerful, paced, themed to the music - I really liked it but poor guy - now stuck with Ashlee. Just can't get a break.

I did like his solo, but maybe I just like pretty pirouettes, LOL! I totally saw that Allison's was not prepped, but didn't see that with Ben's. I just loved his fluidity. He captivated me.

I thought Jaymz's solo was also very weak but I'm sure the judges were looking at everything and Ben's previous dances have just not been that impressive.

I guess for me it was ASHLEY who was unimpressive in those numbers and Ben who was holding it together. So I'm really frustrated that after two lousy weeks where Ashley was by far the weaker dancer, they get in the bottom three when it's a strong week for her. I'm just grr. I like Jaymz, but I just think that Ben was ten times the dancer he was and I honestly think they kept him because he is bigger, taller and better looking.

Still Dimitry gave a great solo - different from last week, powerful, paced, themed to the music - I really liked it but poor guy - now stuck with Ashlee. Just can't get a break.

Agreed. My worry remains that he is just not a good partner, though. We'll see next week. Even if they are in the bottom three, I just can't see Dimitri going before any guy other than the very talented Benji, Travis and (please!) Musa, but honestly, I think they'd pick him over all three when it came down to it. He has the the talent of Travis, the charisma of Benji and the sex appeal of Musa and like all three (moreso yes than the delicious Musa, LOL!) is tremendously talented.
