Archive for the ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ Tag
I love stumbling upon ridiculous things on Twitter.
Case in point: http://twitter.com/blakemcgrath.
Oh Blake, you tattooed, dancing sonofabitch. Turns out that 4,830 people want to see what this So You Think You Can Dance US/Canada dancer/choreographer/judge has to say, and what he has to say usually includes a whole of God-talk, surprisingly.
Besides shout outs to Janet Jackson (he turned down dancing on her tour because of SYTYCDC … really!?!), Paula Abdul and SYTYCD folk like Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Lacey Schwimmer, Blake also tweets night-time prayers and blessings.
Sample religious tweet:
The Lord knows ur struggles! Confess to him and live guilt free. Best feeling in the world. He loves you more than u know!
He also tweets about a supposed music career that I don’t care to check out. Don’t worry, it’s not all God talk and business-speak. We also can check out gems like this:
Mr sun mr golden sun please shine down on meeeeeeeee
First off, American voters: you blew it.
Why, WHY are Evan and Melissa still there when the amazing Janette is sent home? That Miami lass has oodles more talent than those two hacks. Melissa lucked out by scoring the sentimental breast cancer dance, which is 100% why she’s still in the game, even though she couldn’t quite keep up with Brandon when partnered with him. If Brandon (in the bottom two…what?!?!) got sent home too, I was off So You Think You Can Dance. At least until August 11 when the Canadian version comes on. Evan’s fan base needs a new hobby. The dude peaked about 4 weeks ago.
And Nigel….the Katie Holmes lip synching, leg kicking debacle? The only good part about that whole thing was that Joshua and Mark from last season were her back up dancers.
He’s gotten so much bad feedback that ole English Muffin has taken to his Twitter to tweet such finely crafted responses as this:
I’m going to ban all the Katie haters. You make me sick. Your attitude stops ‘stars’ doing charity work. Understand why she did it CHILDREN
(the single quotation and caps are his)
And also this:
Why hate on Katie? She’s had no dance training and did this for publicity for the charity. Everyone lip synchs when they’re dancing. MJ too
Well my friend Kat would like to hate on Katie and I agree 100%:
also people don’t hate katie to be unthinkably nasty, they hate her because shes a crazy holier-than-thou robot. whats likeable about that? i don’t care how dizzy her feet are. also anyone who jilts chris klein is dead in my books
And back to Janette … the girl rocked every routine she had … how can you hate on this?
I know I’m still living in the past, and refusing to concede that this crop of dancers is as good as last season (which was the first season I watched after being convinced it was an amazing show) – even though I have serious love for Brandon and Jeanette and what the hell was Ade doing in the bottom two male dancers – but there’s been a lot of Bollywood dancing in this season, presumably due to the wild success of Katee and Joshua’s from last season.
And it turns out the best was the first:
Emmy nominations are out and So You Think You Can Dance has claim to four of the six Outstanding Choreography nominations.
Here’s my (and my boyfriend’s) favourite: Katee and Twitch dancing to Mercy, choreographed by Mia Michaels, or “The Door Dance”
I think it’s way better than the other dances nominated: Mark and Chelsea’s Bleeding Love dance (Napoleon & Tabitha), Jessica and Will’s Adam & Eve/Silence dance (that smug bastard Tyce Diorio) and Joshua and Chelsea’s A Los Amigos Argentine tango (Dmitry Chaplin).
Is anyone else still upset that Katee or Twitch didn’t win?
I also wonder which dances of this current season are going to be the ones to remember … I’d put the Butt Dance and anything with Janette and Brandon on the list.
