So You Think You Can Dance Finale Results Recap 8/11/11


Melanie Moore wins SYTYCD Season 8!!!

Sasha Mallory takes 2nd place!

Marko Gemar takes 3rd!

Tadd Gaddaung takes 4th place!

Great night of entertainment tonight!  I always enjoy seeing the Judge’s favorite performances of the season and the lead up to the winner.

Here’s the recap!

The show opened with the group routine to Don’t you Wanna Get Hyped by District 78.    This is some serious choreography.  I’m thinking that this has to be some Sonya Tayek’s  work.  My niece offers up one word to sum this dance up:  Awesome!  She is right!  And so am I.  This is Sonya’s work!  Video

I agree with Cat that it will be a hard to call who is going home tonight for the first results show of the season!  Everyone brought their A game last night.

Dancing With The Stars Recap 5/23/11


Kirstie & Maks, Chelsea & Mark and Hines & Kym will perform 3 dances tonight to see who will win the coveted Disco ball!  Each voter gets 5 calls or texts tonight and remember every vote counts.  You can vote until 11 am ET tomorrow. 

Tonight there will be a Make it or break it round and then the Freestyle round.  Tomorrow night, the finalists will perform for the last time and earn their last set of scores from the Judges. 

Also, The Judges will assign the Stars a dance of their choice.

Chelsea and Mark:  The Judges have chosen the Samba for these two.  Carrie Ann provided pointers and encouragement to help the Disney Star excel.   Carrie Ann is really hoping that Chelsea can show that she is a Sexy Woman when she performs.  I think that this was a well danced routine, but I don’t know if Chelsea brought the sexiness, but one thing is clear….this girl can dance.  She doesn’t exude sexiness, but her technique is flawless.  Len:  Every step she takes, he will be watching her.  He liked it, although he wasn’t keen on her flailing arms.  Bruno:  You were like an ultra sexy bombshell.  The rhythm was flowing through her like never before.  Carrie Ann:  Hot, Hot, Hot.  You got down and dirty and that is what I was wanting from you.  (MAC-9) Carrie Ann-10, Len-9, Bruno-10= 29 out of 30  Video  800. 868. 3401

SNL Digital Short: 3 Way (The Golden Rule) Andy Samberg, Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake

Hilarious! I always love when Justin Timberlake visits SNL!! You can always bet there will be a great Digital Short. Andy Samberg and Timberlake are joined by Lady Gaga as they pay ode to the Golden Rule! I love that they also include references to their previous Shorts (D**k in a Box, Mother Lover and Sex on a Boat). Haha!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Last night’s Semi Finalist made it clear for me who will be in the final 3!   That would be Chelsea & Mark, Hines and Kym & Kirstie and 
Maks.  I really like Ralph, but it is his time to go home.    I can only pray that America gets it right.

Dancing With the Stars Recap 5/16/11

Tonight, The Top 4 will perform 3 dances to win their place in the finals.  As I look at the top four, all I can think of is how great Kirstie looks!  DWTS is the best decision that she has made in the last few years to conquer her weight.

We learn that Kym Johnson hurt herself during a rehearsal and that she almost wasn’t able to perform tonight. 

Ralph and Karina:  They danced the Argentine Tango.  Ralph knows that he got by last week, with the hair on his chinny chin chin because of his fans, so he is hoping to excel, so that he can prove that he deserves to be in the Top 3.  Wow, Ralph is really into this, he is willing to wear underwear that will enhance his butt, so that he has something to shake.  Can we say TMI.  Tonight, I think that the Karate Kid is back.  The Tango is his Dance! He totally got into character, but he could have really gotten into the passion to make this dance complete.  I really enjoyed it.  Standing O.  Len:    It lacked a little emotion, didn’t smolder, but he liked the set up of the dance.  You did a really good job.  Bruno:  Something was stirring, but once you got hold of her, you were slightly deterred.  Flat interpretation.  This is the semi final.  Sorry.  Carrie Ann:  Glad you are dancing and not in pain.  She agrees with Bruno.  You have to get the emotion in the dance.  She would like to see it all connect.  This is constructive criticism.  (MAC-8)   Carrie Ann-8, Len-9, Bruno-8=25 out of 30.   Video

American Idol Recap 5/11/11


We are finally down to our final four.  In two weeks, we will be off to the Nokia Theatre for our finale.  It is truly anyone’s contest at this point.

The contestants will sing 2 songs tonight.  The first will be a song that inpire them.  The second will be the music of Jerry Leiber and Mike StollerLady Gaga will be the guest Mentor tonight.  Tomorrow, Jordin Sparks, Julio Iglesia and Lady Gaga will perform. 

James Durbin:  He sang ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ byJourney.  Hmm….did he sing this before?  Maybe, I just have too much Glee in my life.   James is such an incredible performer that it is almost unfair to the other contestants.  This guy has been performing for some time now and it shows in a big way.  I keep saying it, but I don’t know if it is actually his voice that is his biggest asset.  He is the whole package.   Steven:  Little indication of what is to come.  Randy cuts in (he loved it).  You picked the right song, it is kicking ass and so are you.  Jlo:  She loves that he always pulls out the bravado at the end.  Randy:  Paying such a great homage to  Journey and in particular lead singer  Steve Perry.  I’m glad that you are giving him props.  Randy likes that James is seriously doing his homework and  he is even dressed like Steve Perry.    That was the highest degree of difficulty and you did it.    866.436.5701 or 866.436.5705    Video

Oh no….Ryan just said that Haley is going for the King of Pop….like in Michael?  Ooh….very dangerous!

Dancing With The Stars Recap 5/9/11

Once again, DWTS  was the most watched show on Television last week.   This week, the Contestants will take on the Instant Dance.  This part is always fun to watch, because it is interesting o see which Contestant will rise to the occasion of  performing a 2nd dance to music that they

As the stars enter, I have been looking at Kirstie every week, but tonight, I realize how much weight she has lost.  Her face looks great!  Wow! 

 Chelsea and Mark:  They danced the Waltz.  Chelsea kind of put Mark in check this week for complaining about their scores last week.  She doesn’t want to be associated with a bad attitude.  Mark hopes to redeem himself with a Waltz where they totally connect.  I think that the young lad has redeemed himself.  This dance was beautiful, graceful and elegant.  Can we say fabulous? Len: thinks that occasionally there is too much emphasis on the story and not the dance.  But this was very musical, great posture overall I liked it.  Bruno:  Mark you found the perfect setting to have Chelsea shine.  Exquisite, but timeless waltz.  Fabulous.  Carrie Ann:  You’re right, you can’t come out here and just expect to be given great scores, you have to earn them and tonight you earned perfection.  (MAC-10)    Carrie Ann- 10, Len-9 (always tripping), Bruno-10= 29   800.868.3401  Instant Dance:  Get Busy by Sean Paul (interesting)        Video
