Ok, So 10 So You Think You Can Dance Finale Notes
I won't spoil who won for those of you who haven't seen it yet (even though it's all over the news), but I have a few comments about show.
1.)I thought some of the dances, including this paso doble (see above) and the addiction piece, were BETTER during the finale then the night they were originally performed. I also think some of the routines lost some of their emotional edge by being recreated, like the "If It Kills Me" piece with Jason and Jeanine, and the breast cancer piece.
2.)Did anyone else think that we were going to see two dancers (Melissa and Asuka) go flying off the stage during their dances. Melissa, in particular, looked like she was going to sail into the audience if Ade hadn't caught her.
3.) I really really dislike Tyce Diorio. Last night just kinda sealed the deal for me. Douche.
4.) So, let me get this straight. 20 dancers sweat their asses off for two hours, and the six judges come out in top hats bought at Party City, do three kicks and they get a two minute standing ovation? Are we just impressed that there were no broken hips?
5.) Last night was the first night Debbie Allen didn't annoy the shit out of me. Lil'C, however, did. And Mia Michaels with the maroon eyeshadow and the dead sea anemone in her hair...I didn't get it. But I guess that was just her way of being "fabulous."
6.) Yes I want to see Fame. Yes, I know I'm gay.
7.) Tacky moments of the evening: Tyce telling the world that a friend is cancer free, and the first person they show after the Breast Cancer dance? BC survivor Christina Applegate.
8.) Well, hello, scruffy Lance Bass....
9.) While I am thrilled with the winner, I think it would have been a WHOLE different ball game had a certain salsa dancer from Miami not been kicked off the show a few weeks ago. And, from what I can tell from the "season in review" montage they did in the beginning of the show, I'm not the only one who feels that way.
10.) Yes, I can't wait for the next season to start!!!
