SYTYCD Results  
Lah dee dah dah! I will tell you pre-cut, I REALLY like Ashleigh. I was thinking of the results on and off all day, and I even had a dream that partially was about them. And it all centered around, oh, please I don't want to lose Ashleigh! So did I?

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In fact, she wasn't even in the bottom-two! Hah! And hopefully, this actually does mean that she's a lot more popular than people expect because unlike Kathryn (come on, we all knew Noelle was a foregone conclusion), she had a controversial first dance and an utterly CRAPTASTIC second dance. Kathryn's first dance was gorgeous, and she was great in her second dance (if having no heat with Nathan). So, go Ashleigh!! And I am happy that Kathryn is safe because she's fabulous.

As for the guys? Color me shocked! I completely expected Ryan to go home and I was bummed about it because I love him. I know that Nathan was a favorite of mine going back to last season's try-outs, but he never really lived up to the potential. And paired with a different partner, Mollee was fabulous (in my opinion), while Nathan still did not shine, so I wasn't surprised. But Ryan has just been so rock-solid (but for that one early, unfortunate hip-hop).

As for the show, that opening dance was crappy (hello, Tyce!), but I did like that Ashleigh and Ryan got the chance to dance together (celebrated their fifth anniversary a few weeks ago), and if the kiss was a bit much in the middle of a dance, I have no doubt it was choreographed and the romantic in me couldn't help but aww! a little because it's always nice seeing people past the honeymoon phase in a relationship still seem so in love. Yes, that means that I would love to see them paired up next week; 'twould be awesome.

And I haven't voted so far this season, but you can bet your booty, I'll be voting for Ashleigh next week! Love her.

I love Ashleigh. She's awesome, even though I totally didn't know what to make of the first dance, and the second was completely horrid. How much do I hate that the choreographer doesn't get kicked off instead of the dancers in a situation like that? THIS MUCH. Good grief that was terrible. Poor Legacy & Ashleigh.

re Ryan v. Nathan: Ahahahaha. I completely disagree with you about Ryan. I want him to stick for as long as possible. I don't think he deserves to win it but I love the guy, even if he can't dance a solo to save his life, apparently. And I want to see his wife pick his name out of a hat at some point. And I've just never been that interested in Nathan, poor boy.

WHAT was up with that opening dance? Not only was it crappy, but the costumes/makeup/hairstyles didn't feel like they went with the song choice AT ALL. It was jarring, and so weird.

No, we don't disagree about Ryan. That paragraph about disappointment was about Nathan. I love Ryan, as I wrote in the last line of that paragraph:
But Ryan has just been so rock-solid (but for that one early, unfortunate hip-hop).
I was quite happy that Ryan was safe. I just wasn't expecting it.
WHAT was up with that opening dance? </blockquote. One word: Tyce.

Whoops. That's what I get for speed-reading through LJ at the end of my day. :-)

Yeah, I don't know; I don't dislike everything Tyce does, but some of the stuff he comes up with is not just bad but deeply weird and yet the judges fawn over it every damn time. I have to wonder whether the dancers had a bitch session about it behind the scenes.

I've actually found that I quite love Tyce's Contemporary routines, but everything else is just craptastic, IMO. And, honestly, I don't think I can ever forgive him for actually costuming the dancers as CLOWNS (literal clowns) for "Send in the Clowns." Seriously.

I read the spoilers ahead of time (so weird to have them) so I knew the results. It certainly makes watching the show less stressful. I was very happy Ryan was safe as I think he has done such a great job on the show.

But yea for you for Ashleigh staying. I'm not really invested in anyone so results are certainly less stressful that way!

I had read one spoiler, but they got it wrong saying that Ryan and Noelle went home. I'm so glad they were wrong about Ryan.

I do love Ashleigh, not like I did Neil, Chelsie or Evan, but like I did Natalie and Mark. Which is still saying a lot, LOL!

The exact dancers I would have picked to go home went home. While I always enjoyed Nathan's solos, he never really clicked in partner dances.

I was sad Kathryn and Ryan were in the bottom two. But it's getting down to crunch time, so good dancers will be going. I don't have a super-favorite like I have some years in the past, but I guess I'm most rooting for Russell -- he's not technically the best, but he has star quality.
Arabian: Chelsie & Markarabian on December 3rd, 2009 07:36 am (UTC)
I do love Russell myself. Definite star-quality. I know that they say every year they have the best dancers, but I actually do agree this year. Of the remaining dancers, only Mollee and Legacy -- both of whom I do like -- are not of the highest caliber, but I still enjoy them.

I always enjoy reading your episode recaps since you get the show before I do. So I kind of keep your post up while I'm watching the shoe.

Haven't watched the results show yet, but I just wanted to tell you that. But since I'm bad, and now spoiled, I'm looking forward to it more.

AHAHAHA. My fav part of the results show is sitting around with my friends trying to guess who choreographed the opening number (though honestly, it's never a really hard guess.) That one was pretty weird. Not as bad as Send in the Clowns, though.

I was actually surprised that Mollee wasn't in the bottom instead. I like everyone in the top 10, so I can't say I definitely want someone to gtfo, but I sort of thought she'd be the first to go.

Agreed about the heinousness that was Ashleigh and Legacy's second dance. Pretty much the whole time I was begging at the tv for Legacy to take off the cape. After that one I was really afraid for Legacy. 'cos I always have a bit of a soft spot for the b-boys. (Had you been in the room with me when I spotted Hok and Dominic, you would say that's maybe an understatement ;)
