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?

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?

He did (still does). He's great under pressure on a live telecast, as shown on DWTS.

Bergeron makes DwtS a real pleasure to watch.

Small hijack:

All the Right Moves premieres on the 31st, on Oxygen.

Quote:
NEW YORK – May 24, 2012 – Oxygen Media will premiere "All the Right Moves," a new one hour docu-series following the tight knit friendships and lives of four of the most successful and sought-after dancers in the industry, on Tuesday, July 31 at 11PM ET/PT.

The world of dance is fiercely competitive, but with careers, reputations, and friendships at stake, Emmy®-nominated choreographer Travis Wall ("So You Think You Can Dance"), Teddy Forance (recently featured on "Dancing With the Stars" as dancer and choreographer), Nick Lazzarini (winner of "So You Think You Can Dance" season one), and Kyle Robinson (Julliard-trained and recently featured on "Dancing With the Stars”) band together to take this art form to a whole new level by launching the dance company SHAPING SOUND. Through blood, sweat, and tears these lifelong friends and roommates are determined to come together and make this venture a success, giving background dancers a chance to shine.

That sounds amazing! Thanks for the heads up. I love Travis and Nick.

Remind me as it gets closer please. I need to check and see if I get Oxygen.

Dear, silly Cearbhaill.

I have a Post-it on my computer to remind myself to remind you.

Edited to add: the forum rules that say we can't start threads until an hour before showtime are really annoying in cases like this.

Looking forward to season although not sure liking the one night only now that getting to performances.
Not a fan of the cutting of Danielle r/t the head shot and group work.

Disappointed didn't get too see belly dancer female last week.
Afraid the ballet dancers are going to dominate guys but will be interested in what Cryus, the stepper, and martial arts guy can do.

Yeah, but I don't know anything about dance.

Maybe I know a little bit, for a non-dancer. But mostly I just know what I like.

I am most looking forward to the ballet boys and I hope they clean up

Seriously, at this point I don't really know who I like best- it's my favorite part of the season because I have so much hope for all of them.
But IMO there can never be too many ballet boys

Well there will be a male winner and female winner. Just interesting how they are going to play it out and still have decent amount of episodes.
with 20. 1 male and one female go each week so 8 weeks and final? Just not sure how they are going to play it. We will find out wenesday.

also I think with the ballet boys, they are trying to find someone else equivalent to Alex Wong...

Oh, good, I'm glad you saw the thread-bump!

I'll stick reminders in the current show threads as well.

Warning: the movie All the Right Moves is currently showing on Style, so when you look for the TV show, be sure you're picking the listing for Oxygen.
