S30.E02: First Elimination

Recommended Posts


I wish Olivia Jade would go first, but we all know she won't. I'm pretty sure Martin Kove will go first, and he can't dance so that is fine. A lot of this cast is meh...Melora, Christine, Miz, Cody, Brian, Martin, and Kenya can go in any order. I sure hope Suni improves her performance because she wasn't overly interesting either. I do like her though, and hope she sticks around.

I'd really like to see Amanda and JoJo in the finals, along with Iman and either Suni or Mel C.

if Martin somehow got enough votes to escape the bottom 2 then they couldn't eliminate him at all. Like when Lamar Odom managed to avoid the first bottom 2 a couple seasons ago

They seem to be moving forward with having Cody compete in some capacity so I’m interested to see how that goes. Reports are he tested negative but it seems odd to not isolate him at all - I’m not sure if I were working on the show I’d be super comfortable declaring he’s in the clear to dance with a backup. And I believe there are standard union rules they have to comply with, they can’t just wing it.
 

They won’t have dress rehearsal footage, maybe they relax that for COVID and can use other rehearsal footage? Or he and the new female pro do their dance masked?

I was wondering if Len would say something about the shirt bit with Matt. I got a kick out of that and thought the dance was fun overall, but I also agree with the judges' critiques.

Are they kidding with 5’s for Matt? Does that mean Martin will get 2’s? Good grief, it wasn’t a great Samba but it wasn’t awful either. Lindsay was shocked.

I am surprised to see the cast not wearing masks on the sidelines. With Cheryl positive I would think they’d take more precautions.

I’m here with this week’s obligatory “WTF, Tyra?!” post.

I didn’t think Olivia Jade was that great…they surely are kissing her butt, though.  And Matt wasn’t good, but he wasn’t deserving of 5s, either.

Not a fan of Val in purple eyeshadow..

Tyra is a monstrosity who happens to be wearing orange.

Duck Tape is head quartered like a half hour, 45 minutes away from me. For years they had a Duck Tape festival, parade, and contest to make clothing out of it. I'm pretty sure she's wearing a Duck Tape dress!

I think Derek pretty much summed it up when he said that sometimes some people do a dance that's just for them, and that described Sharna and Brian's dance. Yep.

I didn’t know the immersive Van Gogh exhibit had a big enough marketing budget to get a featured advertisement on DWTS. 
 

Also lolllll, Derek, that was the best backhanded compliment ever. “I think sometimes you do a dance…just for you.”

I actually usually love Sharna, and I have nothing against Brian Austin Green, but I thought that was utter crap.  There was way too much posing, standing around gazing at each other,, and even I…who know next to nothing about form or content…couldn’t see much rhumba there.  They’ve been together nearly a year and she’s a pro dancer…has she taught him nothing upright in all that time??

Not a fan of Christine.

Jimmie and Emma did a great job.

They had a nice chemistry going on :).

Amanda looks so elegant, I love it. It all definitely felt like a scene from some classic Hollywood film or something, yeah. 

I share Len's appreciation for that song, too.

I don't know about other cities, but Cleveland's show turned into a hot mess before it even opened. They started selling tickets for an unnamed venue a while back and then rented out part of an old industrial building in a less than appealing area, which they are calling an art house. Then once they finally found their venue, they started telling people oh sorry, those tickets you bought for this day and time, sorry, we are  going to give you tickets for a totally different day and time. At $40 -$50 ticket, that's not okay. 

Oh JoJo, how much I hate you! LOL! Tone it down about 1907%. And the matching outfits need to stop already.

Two women dancing together? Eh. It's been done for 100 years! 

So far I like the Widder Woman, Jojo, and Olivia Jade. All have long legs like Zendaya, but not her level of dancing talent.

I really like Jojo’s joy in dancing and Jenna can match her enthusiasm. I do hope they start changing up the outfits a bit, I didn’t think they’d have them matching every week.  Derek was right, she does lose some quality in the dance when she gets excited.

I don't see the allure of Matt James. I agree with Len---taking off the shirt was unnecessary! 

I think it was totally necessary as it distracted from the fact that he still can’t move his hips.  

JoJo’s home was……her.   But she’s growing up.  No bow tonight.  I guess she using this show to transition to a more grown up image.  That said, I love her sheer exuberance.

Yeah, they’ve been advertising aggressively in New York, and everything I’ve heard is that it’s at best a disappointing cash grab, if not an outright scam.

I want to say Martin looks like the uncle who tries to dance at a wedding, but I feel like that's kind of an insult to uncles who dance at weddings.

OMG.  What is this new monstrosity Tyra is wearing.  I think the wardrobe department now despises her and has a contest going as to how ridiculous they can go before Tyra says no.

This new outfit of Tyra's...is she trying to attract a mate or warn off predators with those side things? 

ETA: @ams1001 picture - yes. That. Exactly.

Someone needs to remind Tyra we are no longer on Top Model. Or Drag Race for that matter. 
 

Amanda is a delight. Normally we would be yelling ringer about her about but after the last 18 months we had, and especially what she went through, dancing is lighting her face and spirits again.

I liked how Derek leaned around it when she was throwing to commercial.
