New York/Denver (Or "Scheduling Conflicts")
What do Lacey Schiwimmer, Benji Schwimmer,
Pascha & Anya, Dmitry Chaplin & Chelsie Hightower all have in common?
Before they defected to "Dancing With The Stars," they all ended up on
"So You Think You Can Dance," and no other dance program gives you the
benefit of many styles into one phenomenal show. Our first destination
is NY. let's not expect to see Dave "Sex" Sollar anytime soon. Season 5
is ON THE AIR!!!
We start things off in the big apple with Tabitha & Napoleon joined by
the gruesome 2: Mary & Nigel. Gabi was raised in a circus family and was
diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. That beautiful routine is the first
person to get to Vegas. You won't find this tag team on WWE or TNA, but
you will find Storyboard & Hemogoblin on this program. With green faces
acting like Halloween, it was no trick to send them to round 2. Crazy
Kate is up next, and with her own ballroom style, crazy doesn't define
going on. Let that be a lesson to you. Peter from Philly is next, and
his tap dancing style and goes to Vegas like the Phillies won the
championship.....................moving on.......................We meet
Tiffany who has 3 vertebrae in her spine, who despite not making it,
dances with inspiration. Maksim....no, not the one from DWTS, the Maksim
who is a civilian dances here with a past dancer from the show. A
cha-cha gets a round 2 ticket for him. With many good & bad dancers by
the truckload, Noboya...i'm not making this up....is dancing with a jazz
routine. Round 2 will be taken to him by the judges. We move on to that
done by Lauren, who was an alum in season 3. Storyboard & Hemogoblin
couldn't take much more of this, so they decide to split like seconds.
The other dancers split away to Vegas and day 2 begins.
Arielle kicks off the day by going to
Vegas. After a failure in season 3, this season was her year....so far.
Thomas does a bolero, but the judges say...NO! He's out. Igor & Nina do
a cha-cha that has great moves & spins. That'll send them to round 2.
What do you do with a umbrella? Ask Kellen. He's on to Vegas like a
rainstorm in Miami. CHmezie's up. He does a car gesture during his
routine, but he swerves into round 2. Lauren is in control for round 2,
and CHemize drives with Igor to Vegas leaving Nina stranded. It's time
we pack our bags again and take a road trip to the mile high city.
Sonya Tayeh joins the gruesome 2 and Kayla is first up and Sonya called
her "Smokin' hot" for that beautiful routine. She smokes the judges to
Vegas. We have Misha & Michel doing a same-sex ballroom that takes them
to round 2. That's all I have to say on it.
Moving on is Allison who does a Star Wars
routine. Does this remind you of Joey & Kym's tango? I think not. With
Allison out, Elias is in, along with Enoch, 2 years below the age limit.
With a popping routine, Elias goes to round 2. Remember Natalie from
last season. Her roommate, Katee Shean went to the top 20 last year.
This year, she took it with a vengeance and they take her straight to
Vegas. Another dancer from last season is Brandon Bryant and ditto for
him, too. In round 2, Elias was told to get the heck out, but needs more
training for years to come.
That'll do it. Next week, Miami & Memphis. We hope you'll enjoy good &
Bad dancers vying for Vegas. Goodbye, everyone!
