    Well, Deanna did have the first talking head, and about an Italian family's heartbeat being in the kitchen to boot.

    I've seen you guys critique ballet technique before, so I'm curious. I didn't think they were mediocre by any means, but I felt they were so sloppy at points (I didn't like his turns, they ended abruptly I felt). Did you notice any flaws, too? Or maybe I'm just tired of stretch-walk-stretch choreo and am making stuff up, lol.

    You could just watch the latest videos on YT, too. 🤪

    Ware and Talbott: I liked how smiley they were, especially Talbott. But this choreography was pretty meh, and while I defer to the ballet experts here, they didn't look technically strong to me. Oshima: I didn't find her solo the most interesting, but very talented, and I liked the smooth transition she did straight to the ground and back up. Great control there. Sldryan and Yeristsyan: I never know how to judge Latin Ballroom on this show, lol. They were OK? Very cheesy. De La Rocha: I hope we don't get this type of solo when we reach the top 10/20/whatever. Newborg: I didn't like the theme, and found the choreography to be overwrought at points, but I like that there was a theme here, and I liked some of the things she pulled off. Her use of legs doesn't seem tehcnically the best, but maybe it was because of the interpretation of the piece. Sweetser: I liked some of the things he did, and he seemed fun in general. Dean: I haven't watched the show, just what's been uploaded on YT, so... did she get in? I have no clue why this was allowed?

    Smac also spoke about it in a recent video.

    I don't like saying "deserve" in the context of a race, but C&C are amazing, and it would be so great to see them win.

    Well, this was all wrong.

    Well, I mean... If they went "well, season 5 was better, 8/10", it's hardly going to win fans... Standing O's could be toned down, though. I do think "never seen before" and stuff like that might be true in some cases. People are starting to blend hip hop technique to create contemporary pieces more often, for instance, and the "what is currently good" in terms of themes and aesthetics does constantly change in the industry, leading to "new" moves and movement being done by some good soloists. We get a new hip hop style audition practically every season, too. Plus, the auditioned dancers are savvy with the SYTYCD game by now, and are quite versatile.

    In terms of technique, I'd probably agree she's great. I didn't find myself impressed too much with her solo, but still fun.

    The worm was pretty nice too! 😃

    Yes, that was in response to someone else mentioning him. Just a thought that passed my mind after his name was brought up. Here (I actually forgot what this thing is called, hence the "forward tumbling move". Is it even a tumble? Well, handstand and a smooth exit lol) She showed great flexibility and control on this move, so I wasn't too sad about not too many technical tricks being on it. Yes, agreed. I'd actually probably agree that the choreography was underwhelming, but I don't think they need to break out a great solo right now, and she focused on performance/musicality instead. I do wish a few more interesting things were there, but it was enough for me.

    Hmm. I thought there was just enough technique in it to show the judges what she had, IMO. I thought her centre leap and her forward tumbling move showed good control, and she showed pretty nice fluidity and control over moves at several other points. I didn't watch the full episode though, so IDK what she's branded herself as. Contemporary? As for Cosculluela, I liked his moment quality at points, but his routine is exactly the kind of thing what dance needs less of, IMO.
