The Round of 14 (or "They're just 14 dancers,
they didn't win the lottery") - July 5|
After a July 4th BBQ, It's time to sit back and get ready for a round of "So You
Think You Can Dance." Yet another 2 hours to kill as we get this thing
Before we start, the auditions started in NYC, where Martha was in there, and
sometimes a dancer could be his/her last. Take for instance, Shayna Fink who did
a good hip-hop dance, but Nigel wouldn't let her in due to injury. Over we went
to Charleston, where Natalie, Travis, Heidi & Dimitry was in there, and we
headed off to the west coast where a barrage of good & bad dancers came, but
John Goldstein came with his hip-hop style that went to Vegas, along with him
came Gevory Manaourkian, an amazing breakdancer who took his shirt off. Joining
them where Benji, Ashlee, Donyelle, Allison & Ivan, but what about a girl named
Pandora? Well, she did some robotic work that took her into round 2, but ran out
of gas. Lastly, Chicago where Jaymz & Jessica came into, but a guy named Jeremy
did some swing dancing...solo, and then Allie Krukoski did a hip-hop dance, but
if you watch the replay, she does a weird face. Okay, enough talk about
auditions, let's get to the competition.
Joining Nigel would be Mary Murphy and Dan Kataty, and up on stage to perform is
Lil' C and the J-Squad doing a krumping routine that's madder than Martha &
Travis. Although i've seen 1 guy take his shirt off, let's take off on the first
Up first, Heidi & Ryan going for...hip-hop. As they'll work with Shane Sparks,
let's see them dance to "Give It All You Got." Ryan did a go-through, and both
did a slo-mo move, They also did a floor backstroke, and went robotic. Both did
arm moves, followed by a split and an electrocuted ending. Was it the shock they
What Dan said: It looked like a cheerleading routine.
What I said: Oh wait, cheerleading? Did they put their ESPN skills to use?
Next, Martha & Travis doing...Salsa. As they work as Ron Montez, let's light
them up to "Tanga." Martha did spins & a dip, and even a kick. Travis did some
spins, and after a tumble by Martha, both went to the floor to end it. Was it
the Salsa in their chips?
What Nigel said: It's just a bit too short.
What I said: Short wasn't sweet for Martha who acted like Tina Turner.
3rd, Ashlee & Dimitry going for...Contemporary. Getting ready to work with Brian
Freidman, let's see how they do to "Dance Dance" by Fall Out Boy. Dimitry starts
by pulling the white sheet off and makes Ashlee appear. Ashlee leans back, and
after they went to the stairs, Ashlee did a copter move, but paused. Dimitry
tried to resume her but didn't work, and the song ended. Was it Magic?
What Dan said: They were not playing the characters.
What I said: They were, but does it have anything to do with it?
Up next, Natalie & Musa doing...Disco. As they work with Doriana Sanchez, let's
have them work at "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summer. Musa did a split while Natalie
did spins, and a flying move. She also did a whirlwind move towards the end. Was
it the spin of their lives?
What Nigel said: Musa's strength was there for Natalie.
What I said: Musa had good strength for air moves.
Going up is Donyelle & Benji doing the...Vienesse Waltz. As they work with
Michael Meade and Toni Redpath, they're taking the floor to "Have you ever
really loved a woman." Donyelle did a short jump and both took turns. Donyelle
did a jump, a leg lift and an air-spin, followed by a bending dip, and a
romantic ending by both. Well, was it romantic?
What Dan said: They're the most entertaining couple.
What I said: Yay for these guys!
Allison & Ivan take their turn on....West Coast Swing. Being the 2nd to work
with Ron Montez, let's swing to "Don't Happen No More" by Pat Benatar. Allison
did a back & forth slide through, and both did a few swerves. Ashlee did a flip
and a drag move, and did a flip around in the closing seconds. Did that swing
really get hip?
What Dan said: It looked like freestyling.
What I said: West Coast Swing could be the best for these 2.
And lastly, Jessica & Jaymz will work with Shane Sparks to do hip-hop to "I Can
Make You Dance." Jessica did a squirm-through, and Jaymz did a split...and then
the scarves come out. They put ot down and grab it with their teeth, and then
threw it away, and both did a lie-down move to end it. Did the scarves help them
earn enough brownie points?
What Nigel said: It was Hip-hop by numbers.
What I said: Did the scarves made it more entertaining?
Before we cash out and go home...(based on the judges opinions)
