Best Dance Week Ever

I have to say, I really enjoyed all the performances last night. With the exception of Joy's of course. I have to agree with the judges, she is so not ready for this competition. I hope she says bye tonite.

So they kicked off the night with beautiful Travis and not so beautiful Martha with Krumping (if you can call that slow routine krumping). I've said it before, Travis is LOVE. I love this boy which is dangerous for me considering his age still has "teen" in it. I'm 24 so I really should be looking above and not below my age. The boy brought it tonight - making Martha look inexperienced next to him. Loved the performance but i saw it more as hip hop and not quite krumping.

Then they brought out pretty boy Jaymz and his partner Jessica to do the foxtrot. Poor boy was upset about the choice of dance cause they need the votes and the foxtrot isn't as entertaining to the public as say hip hop or latin ballroom. Anyway, they did a good job of balancing out each other. I think Jaymz is a good dancer and hope he goes farther than this week in the competition.

Next out was my boy Ivan and his partner Allison. I kinda like these two together, they have something that helps them dance well together and balance each other out. Not chemistry but something. Kinda like they're siblings or something. Whatever it is, it works well for them. They performed a sweet hip hop routine choreographed by two girls i've never heard of. I love Ivan cause he makes hip hop look easy and i know from experience it isnt. He does sick moves so slickly, people mistake it to be that he doesn't have the energy behind it. That's not it people. He just moves in a "humanly" fashion to the hip hop.

LOL, sorry, I had to go there. What the hell does humanly mean Mia? I mean, everyone dancing is human so all the moves are human. Mia, on behalf of the entire country, i beg of you to please stop describing dances and performances that way. It's annoying as hell and it makes absolutely no sense. Thanks.

Anyway, Ivan did a good job and Allison kept up with him. I hope America sees that and keeps them out of the bottom three. Instead, they should put Joy there. I guess that means Dimitri will be in the bottom three but i'm not worried about him. The boy can dance. Damn did he samba his butt off or what? The judges will keep him on cause he can dance AND he's sexy as hell. Is it just me or is Joy as annoying as hell? I can't wait to say bye to her.... she needs to GO. Who's with me? I'm sure Dimitri won't miss her - they had absolutely no chemistry. And it was the samba.... this dance is supposed to ooze sex appeal.

But you know who conquered this feat? Musa and Natalie. OK, these two must be knocking boots off stage. Everywhere they are, they ooze sex. Its contemporary for crying out loud. Chemistry is recommended but they went 500% past chemistry and burnt the stage w/ their heat when dancing. Natalie looks like a minx and you know Musa looks like he can handle business. I'm sure they're raunchy and dirty when doing the horizontal tango and dancing together. Good for them. It helped them dance oh so well together. Who knew Musa could move that way? I love them together oh so much.

Then after that awesome contemporary routine that spoke words to me and made me call my boyfriend during the break, they sent out Heidi and Ryan to do a pop routine to my favourite Kelly Clarkson song. Ryan really grates my nerves... I can't stand him. I mean joy is annoying but she's still watchable. Ryan really gets on my nerves so i was hoping they'd suck this week and he'd get kicked off. Boy am i glad they did. Heidi looked like she was trying too hard to be pop-y. I sorta liked her before cause i thought she was a good dancer (thanks to the routine she did with Benji during auditions. Killer routine) but after she thanked Mia for her harsh criticism, i decided to like her even more. I still hope they're in the bottom three but only cause i want Ryan sent home. Heidi won't have to worry cause Joy will be the girl to say Au Revoir.

The group i was so gung ho about going home last week but didn't even make the bottom three came on next. And wow, they were so so sooo much better this week. Ben and Ashlee performed the jive and killed it. Yes it was a simple routine with minimum lifts but they killed it. I'm not sure if they'll be in the bottom three this week but if they do, i'm sure they'll be back again next week. How hilarious was Shane's "I'm sorry. I didn't like that!" The guy hates jive and made it obvious to the world. It wasn't nice of him to pin his hatred for the dance on them but his reaction was just funny. I had to bring it up.

Next up was Alexandra and Jason. I'm still not sure how i feel about Alex but I love Jason. He's just so athletic. Remember last week's contemporary performance. WOW. He was amazing. Anyway, this week they performed old school hip hop choreographed by the same girls from earlier. It was funny to watch Alex try to "bounce" the performances the way old school hip hop was. Of course my boy Jason killed it again and i suspect he did it enough for hte two of them. It's not that she didn't do the moves correctly, it's just that she did all technique with no oomph to it. I hope she stays cause i want to see her do something awesome.

To round off the night, my fave couple came on. I love love Donyelle and after last week's booty shaking routine, I've grown to love Benji too. I think he has proven himself as a versatile performer. This week, they were given the Cha Cha to do and I worried about Donyelle pulling it off. Whoo... no need for me to worry cause man, they killed the routine together. With lots of chemistry nonetheless. Not quite the Natalie/Musa range of chemistry but enough to show they understand each other's bodies and enjoy moving each other across the dance floor. Good for them, they will be competing with Travis and Martha from henceforth. Although Martha isn't on the same level as Donyelle to me. But whatever, she dances well with Travis.

I enjoyed watching last night's episode so much. I hope they all bring it every week the way they did last night. I can't wait to see who get's voted off tonite. I say Joy and Ryan should go. Who do you want gone?
