America’s Favorite Dancer is…Season 11 Finale

** SPOILER ALERT** Just in case I finish this post before the west coast is done watching the show.

Season 11 has gone by way too fast, and no word just yet on if there will be a Season 12. Joining Mary and Nigel on the judges panel are Tara Lapinski, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Debbie Allen, and Adam Shankman. Sort of hate that we had to wait till the end of season to see Debbie and Adam. Tonight was filled with favorite routines, new dances and a few surprises.

It’s always intersting to see what Judges, dancers and Cat choose as their favorite, usually I agree but there is usually one or two that surprise me.

Mary: Chose Jessica and Casey’s Travis Wall dance. This was something they both needed at the time, and they shined.

Debbie: She actually surprised me with her pick. I did love the Witch Doctor hip hop but was unable to enjoy it again thanks to the little brother distracting me…oh well there’s always youtube.

Zack: He chose his dance with Amy. This dance truely showed how good his is and how much he has grown over the season.

Nigel: While Dirty Diana wasn’t a personal favorite but this time the camera guys did a better job with less close ups. The fact that Nigel had to fight to get Allison back for the finale is ridiculous to me. I could go on about this subject but I’m just happy things worked out turn into GMA to find out who her DWTS partner is or just go on over to our sister site puredwts.

Paula Abdul: Well this was a surprise. Paula is a judge for the Austrailian version of the show. She also brought the most recent winner Michael Dameski with her. He is absolutely amazing, I remember seeing his solo video that went viral.

Valerie: Chose her tap with Zack which is one of my favorites. I still amazes me that they can do some of those steps on the stairs.

Ricky: Chose his first dance with Jessica. This quicky made him an early favorite.

America’s Pick: Um Carly and Surge? Wasn’t sure why this was chosen but I got my answer later in the show.

Jenna: Wasn’t a fan of her pick but I did like Rudy and Tanisha as partners.

Adam: I’ve missed him on the show…but thanks to twitter I did enjoy his commentary. Love that he chose Zack and Ricky’s hip hop.

Time for some Results: 4th place goes to Zack. I was honestly bummed about this but someone had to be there.

Tara: She actually picked the dance that I thought would have been America’s favorite. Loved everything about this NappyTabs hip hop. Emilio and Jasimine killed it.

I love Jesse Tyler Ferguson. I would give him a ticket to Vegas for sure.

Chris Scott and Sonya paired up to create a new dance for tonight featuring the top 10 and the All Stars. Loved seeing some all stars that we haven’t seen in a while on the stage. I loved seeing Dominic (D-Trix) and Emilio dance together. I also spotted Courtney and Marko.

The Crew winner was the Bollywood Crew…anyone else forget about the crews during the season.

Jessica: Not surprise she chose her dance with Robert, still a great routine but I like her hair down better this time around.

More Results: 3rd place goes to Jessica.

Before we get to the big annoucement Cat asked Ricky and Valerie to perform her favorite dance, their first dance as partners.

2nd Place goes to Valerie…if they kept the 2 winner outcome a tap dancer would have won dang it.

Which makes RICKY the winner of Season 11. Truthfully this was no surprise for me, he had the most consistant season and I thought he had in the bag long before we got to the top 10.

So now what, since we don’t know if there will be a season 12 yet…I guess we might as well go see the tour. I’m going to try to come up with fun post during the off season. I’ll be sure to post if there will be a new season but what would you like for me to post.

Congrats Again to Ricky!!!

The Dizzy Feet Gala

I just wish I could find more details other that the ones we already know. The gala is scheduled for Sunday, November 29, 2009 at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles. We heard from the Judges tonight who will be performing at this event. The season 5 dance are scheduled to perform, along with dancers from Dancing with the Stars, and America’s Best Dance Crew. Plus a first seeing all the leads from each Step Up movie dancing together. So we will see Channing Tatum and his wife and co-star Jenna Dewan, Briana Evigan and Robert Hoffman from Step Up 2, and of course Twitch and other past favorites from SYTYCD that are scheduled to appear in the thrid installment. Also performances by the first recipients of Dizzy Feet scholarships from Juilliard, Alvin Ailey and American Ballet Theatre. Plus a performance from Mary Murphy and Dmitry.

Unfortunaly this event will not be televised, which I personally don’t like and I’m jealous of those who are going. So if you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to attend this sure to be amazing show, you can buy your tickets on Ticketmaster.

So for those of us that can’t attend the Gala and still would like to support the foundation go to the Dizzy Feet website. They also have a Dizzy Feet store now also so check it out. If you can donate please do every little bit counts and it for a great cause.
