Season 6 – Season of the Flip Flop?

I’d like to share a bit of yet another conversation between me and John and see what y’all think.

Emilie: and this season, i’ve felt like a flip flopper.John: you are a flip flopperalthough, i think a lot of people have flip flopped this seasonEmilie: i haven’t flip flopped THAT much this seasoni liked my favorites pretty early the only ones i flip flopped on were ashleigh, legacy and mollee oh, i flip flopped on karen, too.

Yes, I’m aware that I flip flopped on whether or not I was a flip flopper. 🙂 So, let me be honest with myself and with all of you.

-I liked Mollee and then didn’t. And then did again after she got to the Top 10 and switched partners.

-I liked Karen and didn’t like Ashleigh. And then I liked Ashleigh better and Karen a lot less. And then Karen left and Ashleigh peaked (in my opinion) and I was ready for her to go again.

-I didn’t like Legacy, but then I was impressed by him in a lot of his routines with Kathryn. And then less impressed (or at least less reliably so) when he switched partners.

But it’s not just SYTYCD dancers I flip flopped over this fall season. I disliked most of Louis van Amstel’s work on SYTYCD, but out of curiosity (and John’s peer pressure), I started watching Dancing with the Stars sporadically. Louis’s partnership with Kelly Osbourne on there made me fall for him and his work. I’m excited to see more of it on SYTYCD in the future. Will that happen?

However, I also had a few solid passions this season. Peter. Sigh. Really wish he could be on the tour. Maybe the tappers could be “special guests,” eh Nigel? Loved Ellenore since Vegas and love her more today. Grew to love Noelle and Kathryn quickly into the Top 20. While I admire Jakob and I’ll be satisfied if (if? ha!) he’s the winner, I’m much more passionate about the girls this season, especially Kathryn and Ellenore.

Did anybody else feel like a flip flopper this season? Who made you flip flop? Any of the dancers have your love from day one?

Noelle Marsh Before SYTYCD

I want Ariana to come back so much – but it would be at the expense of Noelle Marsh, due to her injury (and who knows if she’d be allowed to come back later since she didn’t really get to compete in the Top 20). So I thought I would remind myself why I like Noelle Marsh, too, and I watched this YouTube video of her dancing with another dancer named Karla Allen. Enjoy!

Brandon Dumlao and Ariana DeBose Exit Interviews

Fox just posted the exit interviews from Ariana and Brandon, so I thought I’d post them here for you guys. I can’t even begin to say how gracious they are. These dancers are so young, but they handled themselves with so much maturity and grace. Both say it was an honor just to make the Top 20. Brandon said he can’t believe he was asked back, and he wouldn’t trade it for anything. I do hope they find a way to let him dance again next season, with some time to grow he could be a beautiful dancer. It can’t be easy to be the first ones eliminated, especially for someone like Brandon who literally just got here!

It’s out there that it’s a possibility that Ariana could be back next week if poor Noelle’s knee doesn’t heal. I obviously can’t speculate because nothing official has been released (that I know of) regarding Noelle’s condition at this point, but it would be a treat to see Ariana dance again, I wish it didn’t have to be at the expense of Noelle.

It certainly has been a crazy beginning of the season!

So You Think You Can Dance Season 6 Couples

It’s time for the predictions of the So You Think You Can Dance Season 6 couples. Yes, this is really serious business. You partner on So You Think You Can Dance can completely change how well you do on the show (for good and bad). Will we see an amazing couple like Benji and Donyelle? Will we see interesting couples like Allison and Ivan? Oh the combinations we could talk about.

Also, I can’t help, but say that this website has the best readers/commenters. They’re amazing. On that note, I asked one of the readers of this site, Christine, if she’d predict the SYTYCD season 6 couples. Here’s her predictions:
Billy Bell – Pauline Mata
Legacy – Kathryn
Jacob Karr – Karen Hauer
Russell Ferguson- Ellenore Scott
Ryan DiLello – Channing Cooke
Kevin Hunt – Noelle
Peter Sabasino – Mollee
Victor Smalley – Bianca
Nathan Trasoras – Ariana Debose
Philip Attmore – Ashleigh DiLello

Here’s Christine’s explanation of how she came up with these couples:
This is based on heights (from what I could see), personality dynamic, and a combination of power couples and underdog couples. Also genre diversity would help, but there’s a whole lot of contemporary girls. I could be a little biased for some of them, and I understand that some of them appeared to have great chemistry together on camera, but it doesn’t mean they get paired together sadly.

Which couples would you like to see happen on So You Think You Can Dance season 6?

SYTYCD Top 20 Music

I’m so excited to see the new Top 20. Who will excite me as much as Jeanine and Evan and Phillip and Janette and Ade and Randi and Jason and Kayla and Kupono  Brandon and Caitlin and Melissa? Also, I can’t wait to see how accurate Margaret’s spoilers turn out…

I have a feeling I’ll need LOTS of help with the music today, though. 🙂

“no montage”: “Battle” Colbie Caillat - Coco - Battle-Colbie Caillat

David’s audition: “Touched” VAST - Visual Audio Sensory Theater - Touched-VAST

Billy’s audition and progress: “To Build a Home” The Cinematic Orchestra - Ma Fleur - To Build a Home-Cinematic Orchestra

Peter’s journey in Vegas: “Walking on Air” Kerli - Love Is Dead - Walking On Air-Kerli

Mollee and Noelle are both through: “You’re My Best Friend” Queen - Queen: Greatest Hits I & II - You're My Best Friend-Queen

There wasn’t many new songs in this episode – guess they must’ve taken pieces of songs and used them all over, cause there were just a few.
