Well, this season is over. I purchased from Amazon and didn't mess with iTunes this time!
Episode 13 was better than I expected. The HD visuals of the pyrotechnics and music as the DCC made their entrance was exciting. I mean, I've seen that now a dozen+ times over the years, and this time I was like, "Wow. Here they are."
Charlotte looked strange. Is it the shaggy haircut? Or has she had (more) work done on her face? I think she's attractive the way she is naturally, so the difference kind of freaked me out.
Kelli looks fanfreakingtastic this season!
I wasn't sad to see Lily go. I don't particularly like her look, I don't like her hair, or her style of speaking, and then her dancing was kind of blah. So yes, pare down that squad and cut her, absolutely.
I wasn't sad to see Malena go either, all though I certainly felt some sympathy for her being cut the last night. I will say that watching her cut gave me the major uncomfortables Eek. Contrast her reaction to Tara's! So different. The "No, no, no, no, no, no, please, no, no, no, don't say it..." Eeeyikes.
That said, Malena is beautiful and would rock the uniform. Who knows? Maybe she'll come back after hitting those prep classes hard. And she needs to learn to smile on that field!
The Brennan/Kelli hug in the tunnel was a touching moment. And Lauren pouncing on Brennan with glee was precious.
Poor Jalyn! That looked painful. She was a good sport though, took it in stride. She seems to be a good sport in general.
I would love to see Cianna's hair blown out. I thin that would be a stunning look for her.
Poor Yuko! Hope she recovers fully and quickly.
Briana is fantastic. Wish we'd heard and seen more of her this season.
Ashleeeeee! I've liked her for awhile and she just keeps getting better and better. And her shoulders! Strong and gorgeous. And she's absolutely right that it's the hard work that gets you there.
Bridget's reaction, "My team, my team!" Loved it.
Caroline had one moment in the tunnel when she was hot. Most of the time she doesn't strike me as that attractive.
I loved seeing when they called their parents with the good news.
Did y'all notice the song titles behind Kelli on the white board? Seasons ago, we used to know exactly what songs they danced to. "When I Grow Up," "Glamorous," etc. Now it's harder to know that because of licensing issues or whatever. So it was great to see some of those song titles this season!
Lacey was so cute as an 18 year old!
And Kashara. She's one of a kind. She will be missed.
