    I did just that and I missed the zinger. I'm guessing it was about the ballroom dancing girl, right? What was the context/full zinger?

    In the top-10-boys piece choreographed by Sonya Tayeh, Will confesses in the rehearsal footage that he is not keen to dance with his shirt off: "I got some jiggle going on."

    After the performance, Cat asks him "Did you just shimmy?" and Will says "It just moves!" and she says "at least we know it's real."

    I probably would not watch this show if Cat Deeley was not the hostess. She is soooooo good at her job. I didn't realize she was so tall until she stood between the two small girl dancers and described herself as the "giant".

    Well to be fair, the same can be said about Robson's routines. But in a good way.

    Although I'm aware of the history (I've watched every season), this little bit still grates on me as lame and annoying. If it weren't for this one thing I'd put Cat as right up there in the "hosts pantheon", second to Jeff Probst (he wins going away, though, because his job is so much harder and more integral--he is that show in so many ways). With it... well maybe she's still up there. But I still hate it! :eek:

    Almost didn't recognize Mia. Lips plumped and botox injected, she had to really force that smile.

    Yup, useless cheerleading.

    Is she related to Emily Deschanel of "Bones"? She looks like her.

    My early prediction is for Amelia to win. She just seems so authentic. Even though Zooey is a so-so judge, I agree with her comment to Amelia - that it seems like she is lit from within.

    Or Amelia could be like Jordan C. , who did a kick-ass audition but whose talent there didn't translate across to the show.

    I adore her, but I think Nigel's caution to her in Vegas week (backed up by L'il C), is dead on. She needs to work at bringing her gift to other people's choreography.

    Wouldn't surprise me, I find that I really don't like Amelia for some reason, similar to how I never really liked last years winner.

    I think Amelia is a vampire. It doesn't appear she has any blood in her body. :)

    When she dances her own stuff, she's gorgeous. When she dances someone else's choreography? It doesn't flow. Like Nigel & L'il C said - if she can't bring it, she's not going to last at all.

    Alexa is going to have the same problem. Part of me doesn't wonder if they put her through this time so that they could be done with her. She has zero stage presence, IMO.

    I'm kind of not happy that they put Cyrus in instead of the guy that could actually /dance/ (blanking on his name). I realize that they are going for stars that can dance instead of dance stars this season, but it still didn't feel right.

    And why does it seem like 50% of the girls are interchangeable? Petite & blonde. That must be Nigel's type.

    There's more than a few long curly haired brunette girls this season, too.
    If one of them was smart they'd come back with short red hair to differentiate themselves before voting begins. Allegiances form early in popular vote shows and if you don't stand out you fade away.

    I meant in general, over the last 9 seasons. They seem to be disproportionately represented.

    See, I LIKE that idea.

    The SYTYCD website has pages up with photos and bios of the contestants. One of the things listed are their dream dance partners from previous seasons of SYTYCD. It's interesting to see which dancers got picked. Some dancers stuck with one partner; one dancer picked one guy and one girl, one person has four (make up your mind, darlin').

    It's amazing to me how many of the dream dance partners are dancers who made me say 'meh'. It would be fun to watch tapes of previous shows and have them try to point out to me the stuff I missed. But there have been some pretty amazing dancers who didn't get picked by any of this years' top 20.

    Maybe some of it is a height thing. It seems like we've got a LOT of tall dancers this year.

    Edited to add: Cearbhaill is smart about the hair thing, but the ideal time to do it would be between Vegas and when all the publicity stills were shot for the show (e.g. like Amber did). I think it's a bit late to do it now.

    When ranking show hosts don't forget Tom Bergeron. I'd put him in a tie with Cat and both above Probst (because he doesn't improv as well as the other two IMO).

    Didn't Mia have cancer, and isn't that why the wig? :confused:

    Interesting, because I was thinking we seemed to have a lot of short dancers this year. Maybe there's just nobody that's "normal" height, and we have extremes instead.

    Seriously? Bergeron? Didn't he host Americas Funniest Home Videos after Saget?
