The brothers are good.
They cut the right sister.

I think that Mohawk choreographer was poison for the dancers.

I felt kind of bad for Natalie.

I think the top twenty will be really top notch dancers.

For competition reality shows, this show has the best talent by far.

I felt bad for Natalie too. I didn't see why they thought she didn't cut it this year

I think that Sanjaya's mom jinxed her
with using them as the example of the perfect dancers during the rehearsal

it is like the judges wanted to contradict her

Yeah, that cheesed me off a little. How many extra chances did they give Gabi, and then they cut Natalie after one "disappointment"?

Was Gabi the African American female who couldn't get the choreography? That made me so mad! Natalie gets cut, though she narrowly missed out being on the show last year, and now gets cut at this point. She seemed to take it pretty well though

Yeah, she was the one they kept telling "wow, you're such a disappointment, but we'll let you squeak through" and then "wow, how disappointing, but you can dance for your life now." I'm glad she got cut later.

I should clarify - I'm not glad she got cut out of spite or anything, I was hoping they wouldn't let someone keep squeaking through even though all they showed us on TV was them being "disappointed." That always bums me out on these types of reality shows, like they're keeping them around because they're cute or outrageous or whatever.

so I was glad they cut her because she didn't cut it, rather than keeping her around just for the sake of keeping her around.

Ok, she was the one that could not get that one kind of choreography.

However, her solo was one of the most powerful of any, this whole season.



They can edit this show anyway they want. Right now there are 32 finalists.
We have not seen how they all got there. Sometimes, we just see a 5 second clip. "You're through, congrats."

The dancing for your life thing, I don't remember it at this point of the competition before.
They did leave themselves up to the charge of playing favorites. I hope we don't see anymore of it tonight. Just cut the 12 and let's get on with the show.

I still say Natalie, got cut because that one Mohawk lady, practically guaranteed her a spot during the rehearsal, saying she was flawless. (The guy almost got cut, too)

The judges do not like having their power challenged.

I feel bad for contestants on reality shows when they're forced to pull all-nighters. I was angry on behalf of the one poor girl who got reamed by Mia for having the sheer gall to *gasp* get some sleep to try and have a clearer head.

Mia was all "So you gave up?" I was hoping the girl would let her have it, but of course that's not going to happen. Like, 'No, you bitch, I didn't give up, we knew that we would work better after having gotten some rest since we've been up for a bazillion hours for your TV show."

I think they pull that sleep deprivation shit on a lot of reality shows, probably just to create extra drama and tension. It's bullshit.

Do you recall that after being mean, they did pass her.
I don't get the meanest when they get cut. Especially when the kid is not talking back.

One thing that competition did do is let the one brother shine. I believe he was responsible for the 'nerd' choreography routine that worked so well.

So his talent got exposed.

I like the brothers - hope they make it. They certainly lucked out when the last part of the competition was Broadway / West Side Story. And yes, 'nerd dance group' with the brother that had the choreography experience - surely lucked out.

And as to something cori said, I dislike the sleep deprivation part as well. What does that have to do with your talent? That is, after all, what they are trying to find, right? Talent?!?! Why torture the contestants, especially if they are going to be there for several days / possibly a week. Let them rest! I mean it's not like the judges don't get a full night's sleep. Why not let them rest so they can be at the top of their game as well? Not all exhausted, battered and bruised.

They've done it a few times, but it seemed much more dramatic this time around.

I read somewhere (can't remember where) that Nigel said that they don't always pick the 20 best dancers. Obviously they're going to put some people through simply to add drama, excitement or whatever. I understand that they have to make it compelling TV, but I wish they would just put all the best people through.

Well said. I completely agree.

My favourites right now are Auska and Phillip Chbeeb. Thankfully tonight's show is only 1 hr long - all of these 2 hour long episodes have been so unnecessary. 1 hr is plenty of time, as much as I love to watch the dancing. It just seems like there is SO much unnecessary filler.

I absolutely LOVE Cat - wasn't she so adorable when she was talking with Tony, and saying that she loves seeing grown men cry?! I just want to pick her up and hug her.

I like the brothers, a lot. Based on the previews it looks they may be the final 2 of the night and only one will go through. I hate that. I think Evan should go through, and they should let the other one choreograph for the show...he's pretty awesome.

I also think Brandon is AWESOME. I hate that Mia is judging him on a completely different level and slamming him for not measuring up. He is one of the best dancers there and they had nothing good to say about him. Dumb.
