  1. I don’t think anyone in this cast has deserved a 10–choreography, performance, technique. But, I’m sure the judges will give someone a 10 soon, deserving or not. They know people are looking for them. From what I’ve read, people would prefer the 10s go to James or Kate.
  2. Joe can repeat and repeat as much as he wants about Trump not being a conservative but is a lifelong Democrat. It won’t convince most people that Trump’s a liberal/democrat. Trump’s decisions have been blessed by the conservatives (Mitch, Lindsey etc) to include the debt ceiling. Well, maybe the “Fox-type” viewer will be persuaded by the repeating. But, most see him more as a conservative/republican because he is so selfish and money hungry. The main thing is he was the candidate for the Republican Party; not the Democratic Party. Why is that if he’s a lifelong Democrat?
  3. Witney was really emotional after Len’s comments about her QS performance. Earlier, someone had mentioned that Witney LOOKS pregnant. I don’t see it but she was too emotional. This can’t be her first time making a mistake.
  4. I'm dropping both. And, you are right about the music. But, I think TPTB knew the music wouldn't inspire anyone for an AT. So all three conspired. But, you have to have some criteria to choose anything. A good AT is just one of mine. I do use technique as one of my criteria for a favorite but performance is first for me. I'm one of those people you guys hate. I'd rather have someone with great performance skills and mediocre technique than mediocre performance and great technique. I look at the show as an entertainment show. That's why ringers don't bother me. They have the tech
  5. Of course, the newness has fallen off. But, most of the dancers are too polished now. A lot of the thrill of SYTYCD was watching great dancers in a style struggle in another. Now, if you’re not polished enough coming into the competition, the choreographer just creates around you. Speaking of choreography, I saw where WOD won the emmy. I think one reason they kept bringing SYTYCD back was the emmys. If they're going to treat WOD and SYTYCD the same, WOD will always win. Those groups bring in routines that they’ve had loads of time to tweak the choreography and performance. On SYTYC
  6. Everyone seems to like Pasha. I enjoyed his routine least of all the pros and usually the AT is one of my favorites. I don’t know if he had to make allowances for Kate or what. So I need to get someone else to root for. I have to let you go if I don’t like your AT. I give breaks on technique because it takes a while for technique, even if you’re faking it. But as an entertainer/performer, you should be able to get the essence of the dance. The audience should feel the intensity of a tango, the fun of a jive, the romance of a waltz etc. I don’t have a problem with the pros, as long
  7. Jon Meacham talked about Americans being a forgiving people except when lied to. Then he went on and named the presidents who got in trouble during the modern era—Johnson/Vietnam, Nixon/everything, Clinton/scandals, Trump/everything. Is Meacham a republican lover? I know Nixon and Trump are republicans. But, I don’t care who you are, if you’re talking about presidents who lied, you must include Nixon. And, Joe likes to remind everyone, especially lately, that Trump isn’t a true republican. Didn’t he run down all the democrats that Trump gave money to yesterday? I remember thinking
  8. I’m guessing John Salley as the Thingamajig. He’s a 4 times champ and he can sing.
  9. Kate is my favorite as well. So far she’s had a foxtrot, cha cha and quickstep. I hope she can handle the other styles because she’s a joyous performer and very rhythmic. Maybe age won’t be a problem. Jennifer Grey won. She was about 50 when she won but she was skinny. I know Amber won and she’s not skinny but she’s young, and Glee was still on the air. Lamar should go next and then Sean. I agree with an earlier poster that James has no male competition. I like Kel and Karamo but they are no match for James. But the women are good. I always vote for the woman if she and a man co
  10. Joe is always on his high horse when he can bring a Clinton in a bad light. No matter what’s happening, he has a Clinton-ism. So glad Pelosi shut him down when he bragged about his votes for 2 of the articles to impeach Clinton and running down the after-effects (losing his law license, how it sticks with you). Joe keeps trying to make it seem like Clinton was abusing the Constitution. She let him know how they differed on Clinton because it was personal behavior. Thank you Speaker. But, since Trump, we know that personal behavior really means nothing to the Republican Party.
  11. I was just thinking of versatility as it relates to the show and the types of styles they promote. Not the world. If bboy dances were part of the show's preferred dance style, he would be very versatile. So the dance skills I was referring to are the ones that are used most on the show.
  12. I meant a bboy may have been cross trained in his early years (someone had stated Bailey was cross trained). But if he’s a great bboy, his recent practices would’ve been devoted to the bboy scene. So his other dance skills are not going to be on point which will make him less versatile than the studio trained contemporary/jazz dancers. Thats just my opinion Feel free to disagree.
  13. I hope it’s renewed. Give it a chance to capture an audience. I really hated that Jessica wasn’t upset with Angela about turning on her. What does she feel guilty about when it comes to her family? i think they are rushing the Nick story. Now he confesses to Keri? They should’ve built up a scenario against McGann first. I like the Nick character. I was hoping they’d have something to show that he may not have committed the murder.
  14. I agree with a lot of what you wrote but I also think they were trying to spice the ballroom routines up. Sytycd audience is cool toward ballroom. They warm up a bit with the flash. Even if the ballroom is done well, the votes are for the contemporary or hip hop. I think they try to give the contestants a fighting chance when they get ballroom by adding the flash. i think, like you said, that we accept turns/leaps in any style. They can usually flow into another move, if choreographed properly. Bboy moves are “look at what I can do” moves. There is no interaction with the partner o
  15. I think age has more to do with the ratings decline and the different ways to view the show. But you are also correct.
  16. Agree. I don’t like Angela. And didn’t she say she wanted to camp outside city hall? So not only does she not appreciate Jessica but she wants to cause trouble for her as well. Im going to have to look back to see why Jessica feels such a strong responsibility toward them. She just lets Angela walk all over her.
  17. You’d think someone on their third marriage wouldn’t want to judge/challenge anyone’s relationship with God. There are no big and little sins. Joe needs to remember that Satan knows scripture too 😉
  18. Sorry but I am one who would like for them to really argue. I want them to adjust the tax cut and whatever else that they can find to help the middle class. But, I don't think health care/provisions for immigrants (legal or otherwise) should be at the top of the list. That's just like people taking care of a neighbor when people in their home are in need.
  19. I know that Newt and the boys didn’t hound the Clintons for three years before catching Bill in a lie about Monica. So what did they track for three years before they caught the Clintons in a lie? According to Joe, it took them three years to catch whatever they caught.
  20. So true. And they've just about mastered their technique. TPTB are constantly making changes. When they did it in the earlier seasons, I think they were trying to better the product. Now, I think they're just trying to get the product on the air. So, they're making deals that they don't even like. But, this got me to thinking of the changes that I've noticed besides the judges interference after the Top 10. Season 1, they got rid of the "reality show vibe" where they showed the dancers conversing and mingling in relax situations, showing the hollywood week class participation,
  21. In a way, that was my point. Benjamin looked as good in his ballroom as Gino did, and Gino had the ballroom partner. But would Gino had looked as good w/o a ballroom partner? I guess I was just thinking they look to be at the same skill level. It just depends on who’s the show’s pick. The pick gets the advantages like the ballroom girl in ballroom and the contemporary girl in the emotional contemp routine. The other gets the obstacles like the hip hop girl in ballroom and the Polynesian routine. Gotta love the show’s manipulations.
  22. Agree. It use to be if you just got broadway, you were history. Guess tptb wanted to make sure that they had a reasonable explanation to eliminate them when they fell in the bottom. Granted, if you do well in the "other" style, you get the praise. But, they had to have known that Anna wouldn't be good in this type of dance. She wasn't even good in the cha cha. Benjamin was ok. No Mark K but Mark is from Hawaii. So not surprised about Anna leaving. I know people don't like Madison but Anna is the weaker. But I thought they would want Benjamin through T6--maybe even do a routine wi
  23. Really not invested in this cast like I've been in the others. I thought the routines were better this week than last week. The jive was my favorite routine. I guess Travis contemporary for Eddie/Sophie was my least favorite because you could see that Travis was trying to hide Eddie. People are saying that Bailey/Mariah are the chosen ones. I don't agree but I do think the show wants them around. They appear to be audience favorites. "Wee Ones" usually are audience favorites, if they don't screw up too badly. They got another upbeat routine. I think as long as they can keep Bail
