SYTYCD6 - The N'd

So You Think You Can Dance - Top 10 Results Night - The Cut From 10 to 8 - Ep. 620
Judges: Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, Adam Shankman

Top 10 Group Dance
Style: Crap
Song: "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me" - Billy Joel
Choreographed by: who else? Tyce DiOrio!

So I hated this dance from start to finish. Not because the dancers didn't dance it well, but because it was a scattered mess with no cohesion, style or even a story. Running to a fence and screaming is not a story. It's a scene from West Side Story, but that is beautifully choreographed. This was not the genius of Jerome Robbins. This wasn't even Baskin Robbins. It was complete and utter sh!t (excuse my language).

And then guess what? Cat Deeley announced it was choreographed by Tyce DiOrio! Of course it was! Why am I not surprised? Why does he still have a career? It's not like he's nice or anything (see Every Little Step).



And to make matters worse, the show invited The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers to perform. Now THAT'S CHOREOGRAPHY!:

The League of Extraordinary Dancers - "Yellow" - Vitamin String Quartet:


HOLY MOTHER OF CREAMPIES. I WANT TO SEE MORE OF THAT!

Guess what? It looks like TheLXD are making an online dance movie in a musical or operatic way. Like how a ballet works using dance to tell the story. But not quite a musical/opera. More like Dansical. Looks wicked! And "Other Asian" is in it! Check it out! I love Glee's "Other Asian":




My Predictions from the Top 10 Performances:

Bottom Four: Noelle, Ashleigh, Ryan, Russell
Should Go Home: Noelle and Russell (I guess? Can no one go home?)
Going Home: Noelle and Ryan?


The actual results were:

Bottom Four:
Noelle, Kathryn, Ryan, Nathan

I'm sad that Kathryn was in the bottom 4, though I admit I barely recognized her with her straight hair and she looked awfully like Noelle there. Kathryn's a great dancer but I guess compared to Ashleigh, Mollee and Ellenore, she's the least distinct.

I love all the boys so any boys in the bottom 2 is shocking (I know, that doesn't make sense at all but that's how I feel).

I'm not really surprised that Ryan and Nathan are in the bottom just based on the whole story package from all the dancers. And Nathan lost a lot of followers during the Top 16 and 18 weeks and the peaks at his immaturity. It's too bad though since I thought his solo this week was the best one.

In the end, American just didn't vote for Noelle Marsh which doesn't surprise me that much. She's a great dancer but I think she lasted this long thanks to Russell. (I still think Karen should have taken her place in the Top 10).

And Nathan Trasoras was eliminated and ended a 2 season long affair that started off so strong, and slowly devolved because of the guys immaturity (isn't that like every marriage?).

(So did people just not like people with N names this week?)

So only one more week of eliminations before the big finals. Already? Didn't this season just start?

Oh. My. God.

These were all, so f*ing incredible!

Disagree that Noelle got carried into the Top 10 by Russell. It was right that she went home this week, but I thought there were several dances in the previous weeks where she was the one propping up that pair and didn't get credit for it.

DuchessKitty said...

Totally agree with your comments about Tyce's crappy opening number. The minute it started my friend Larry and I were like "WTF is this? A Billy Joel song? Must be Tyce."

ANYWAY, I wasn't surprised by the bottom 4, I can't tell you how many people I've talked to that constantly got Noelle and Kathryn mixed up, so I think that was part of the problem. And like you I didn't really want any of the guys to go. I would've rather have lost Ryan, but he is a better partner than Nathan. Oh well, I'll see my cute darling boy on tour.

The LXD were absolutely PHENOMENAL. My friends and I rewatched their piece about 5 times. I recognized "other Asian" and one of the guys looked exactly like Lil' C but I guess it wasn't him because wouldn't they have said something? Would love to see them live or in a film or anywhere.

Ranking the 4 MEN left (isn't it weird they are always called "boys?")I don't see Jakob as head and shoulders above the rest. Rather IMO it would be him and Legacy tied at the top, and Russell and the Ryan tied for 2nd. Mainly because I haven't been as impressed by Jakob's hiphop yet as much as I have been impressed by Legacy's contemporary. But maybe I'm missing something. Also I am getting tired of all of Jakob's high kicks constantly, it's like he's always trying to show us his crotch and inner bumcheeks. I know for others that's a good thing though LOL

Vance said...

I do think Legacy is so up there too. I was actually calling for him to win after his routines. Then I watch Jakob and Elle and want them to win. Then I watch Legacy and want him to win. And so on. lol.

I wonder if the order they dance might actually affect their voting considering some things are so close at this point.

One of the 3 choreographers listed for the LXD number is Harry Shum, who plays the character/dancer Mike Chang on Glee. I am waiting for Glee to stop treating the Asian characters so shabbily, bts. He will be in the Jon Chu movie Step Up 3-D which Adam Shankman is producing.

Vance said...

Yah, though at least Glee has Asian characters. I like the new Scrubs 2.0 but how can there be NO ASIAN'S in MED SCHOOL?
