Yes Gasmi, I am a dumbass. You see, I just returned from an AWESOME trip to NYC with my niece and son (TDA was incredible!!) and I realized that I had completely forgotten to ask Flipit to have someone cover SYTYCD for me.
Oy. My apologies to you all. I can only plead extreme exhaustion/total brain fartdom. And while I’m bummed that my brain had a major malfunction, part of me is just a wee bit glad because now I get to talk with all of you about the FANTASTIC start to this season! Are you ready????
Welcome……to So You Think You Can Dance (dance…..dance)!!
Even before the opening credits are run, we are getting our first group dance of the season. I say it again….HELL YEAH!
This one was choreographed by Christopher Scott, and I continue to love what he does. The man really knows how to show off group dynamics and pull the best from the dancers he’s given. He didn’t even hide Cyrus in the back!
Aw crap. Sir BitchyPants is there. You know what that means. PUKE.
After the credits roll, we get our mini intro for each dancer, you know the one where they have time to do a headroll, pirouette, developpe, LEAN before the next dancer comes out to do almost the same thing. And then Cat’s onstage and welcoming us all back after a break for the holiday.
Joining Mary and Nigel is Kenny Ortega. Hilariously, Cat almost calls Mary Mia Michaels which I’m sure Cat got screeched at about after the taping.
In other news, Mia had a fit when she heard this because she can at least still feel her face, doesn’t drink on set (doobies don’t count) and doesn’t grope the boys.
We revisit the news that there will be one show a week and that there will also be both a boy and a girl winner this year. Nigel tells us that after this week’s vote TWO guys and TWO girls will be going home. UGH. I find that to be annoying since we just started the damn competition and last year the whole double elimination thing really fucked over some good people. Why cast twenty if you’re going to do this? You suck Nigel.
Another change is that from the get go we will be voting for individuals dancers instead of couples. This change I don’t mind so much as it doesn’t offer safety to a not so great partner just because they’re paired with someone awesome. Or throw an awesome dancer into the bottom because their partner sucks. In theory at least. We’ll have to see how the whole thing plays out.
There’s not much filler time this evening, but this show can’t bear not to cram SOME in there, so we’re getting a nine second “bio” from each dancer about themselves. As you all know I just ADORE the filler so I’m just superexcited about this already.
My mom never learned about silent H’s, I find it hard to stand upright ‘cause my boobs are UGE, and Nigel is paying a lot more attention to me now that my braces have come off. I’m a little creeped out.
