So You Think You Can Dance (Premiere)  
A few dancers I really liked. For those who don't know, this season is another bit of a change, they are back to the top 20, and once they hit the top 10, they're bringing the all-stars back to dance with them. I just hope (obviously!) that Neil is one of the all-stars again.

I am so this show's bitch. I just love dancing so much and this show is capable of showcasing some outstanding dancing. (So changing it's placement on my list of shows; I wrote that before watching the premiere.)

- Melanie Moore - WOW! Just, yeah, wow.

- Deon Lewis Jr/Damon Bellman - Good and hilarious. It literally me clap and laugh out loud. LOVED THEM!

- Marko Germar - He was excellent, but charismatically-speaking, he didn't grab me.

- Kimalee Piedad - Beautiful. That's some awesome control. Whoah!

Tyce remains as annoying as ever. GO. AWAY! He doesn't even have good (let alone amazing) choreography* to make up for he's douchy lameness. SHUT. UP! (*Okay, I do like his contemporary choreography.)

- Ashley Rich - She was very good, but I didn't see how she was that much more amazing than other dancers. The commentary from Tyce (ugh!) and Toni during the dance was a bit OTT. I don't know. She was really good, but the AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! from the judges kinda threw me a bit.

- Jeffrey McCann - I love the great b-boyers and always hope that they can pull other stuff off when they're as entertaining as this guy.

- Ryan Ramirez - I did think she was good last year, so I don't mind seeing her again.

I LOVED Melanie's audition. I love when you can see some classical technique in a contemporary dancer's routine, and her movements were so precise without being devoid of emotion. By contrast, I'm not that big a fan of a style like Ryan's; that kind of contemporary dance just always looks too flail-y to me.

Kimalee's audition was really cool! At least we know she can do partner work.

I just started watching SYTYCD a few seasons ago. Before I watched it, I never understood people who loved it. I mean, it's dancing... and I know NOTHING about dancing. But the endless commercials during AI finally sucked me in and I gave it a try and OMG!!! I totally get it now. Still don't really know anything about dancing... but I love watching this show and I get so excited for it when they start advertising it.

I haven't had a chance yet to catch the entire episode, but I caught Ashley's routine last night when hubby ambled away from the tv... and she immediately annoyed me. I just got the immediate "I don't like her" vibe. And once she started talking, I had to turn it off, because that amped up my vibe by like, a bazillion.

YAY!!! So glad I have someone on my flist to talk about SYTYCD with!

IF NEIL SHOWS UP....YOU HAVE A DUTY TO LET ME KNOW! I have no actual television anymore...so i have to download anything to watch....so I NEED TO KNOW IF I NEED TO DOWNLOAD! This is your job as my friend....and fellow Neil-lover.

Also, I agree Tyce is an absolute ass most of the time, but I do love his contemporary choreography. I wish he did more of that and less of the broadway....because well I love Broadway...I love Broadway Choreography...and yet somehow.....he bores me with it sometimes....and THAT IS WRONG! (Also, if they got rid of Tyce...then Cat would not be saying 'Tasty Oreo' all the time...and well that amuses me)

I didn't know that they'd changed the format back to Top 20. I didn't really care for the way they did it last season...so does that mean for the first ten rounds they will dance with each other?
