    S16.E06: Academy 1

    It is possible, yeah. I wish the judges would just give another chance on the very same routine, instead of this "dance in your own genre" stuff, because not only does it not make any sense to make a contemporary dancer stay based off their contemporary skills when they're weak in ballroom, it's entirely possible they'll be doing the shtick they were accepted for during the auditions (maybe even due to what the producers told them to do). Yes, me too. Hate it in figure skating, hate it in dance. I'd rather see someone dance with soul or fire and have slightly sloppy technique, than have perfect lines but bad emotion. Yes, that's Gino. I think he's technically alright, but I agree he needs to mature. I will be fine with him making the top 10, but I'd rather someone better were pushed (as someone inevitably will be), rather than yet another technically sound, immature contemporary dancer, though. It'd be better if he were showing a great range of movement, or musicality, or creativity in his solos, because maturity and age are tied together somewhat, but his audition solo wasn't interesting either, IIRC, quite a generic contemporary solo. I had to check my comments on Sumi. I remember her, but not what she did, and I was right that I hadn't found her routine the most interesting during the auditions. She seems technically very, very good, maybe won't be versatile, but I'll have her in the top 10 over several others, at least as long as someone else doesn't catch my eye next week. I didn't even remember Desi, though.

    I agree this is why she was probably let go, but at the same time it's so annoying that flash is opted for over interpretation and musicality. Although I do think she can make a nice interpretation and have it be a technically demanding piece, too, so it's sad we never got to see that either. I was more impressed this week than I was during the auditions. I liked the BBoys doing contemporary, and Castro, too. I got only a few glimpses of Sumi, but I agree she was impressive, much more so than in her auditions for me. Sad that Smac was let go, but I think she is probably right (as she says on her YT vid) that she's not meant for the show. I don't think I am impressed by a single contemporary dancer outside of Castro thus far, so I am not looking forward to the usual Chosen One (which will probably be Cosculluela).

    Well, the show just isn't working with this two episode format for me, even though I thought it might. It works much better as a one episode deal.

    I'm sure some of it is groupthink, and the treatment is another reason I'm uncomfortable watching all the interactions with him. But sometimes he doesn't even seem to get out of the way. I don't mean "he's not meant for this show" in a manner against him as a person. He's probably very at-his-pace IRL, and that's just not what they're supposed to be doing here.

    Separating this from the joke-y post. Subha is just uncomfortable to watch. He's not meant for this show.

    At least Fred wore wedding-semi-appropriate attire for this challenge. He simultaneously does and doesn't seem like the kind of guy who'd turn up with a sleeveless hoodie on. Sarah's army experience should have meant that she'd be good with mass-scale lobster. It also should have meant her being able to support Noah through his life-threatening experience.

    Why not both? Hip hop women have hardly been treated well on this show's part.

    Why does Gibson look like she's being exorcised half the time?

    Well, technically, raw fish itself is an incomplete. Just because they put it on a plate doesn't mean it was a dish.

    😂 I must say, for all my defending of the season, I sure hope the good cooking starts to pour in soon.

    I was LOLing at Dorian's yelling at Subha 😂

    Figure Skating

    Have you watched the winning and the silver medal performances for the ladies' event at 1996 worlds? All four of those programs were filled with transitions, strong jumps, better skating skills and choreography than what is seen today. The (welcome) difference is the absence of overly long step sequences and spins.

    Is this a reference I don't get, or did you just mean "rich"?

    A lot of people were bored, but why not. Ever checked Twitter?

    S16.E05: Auditions 5

    That her legs were extremely sloppy? This, and for last season too. I do like that Tap dancer from Audition week 4, but IDER her name.
