Still together Unsure about status Broke up Melody Lacayanga (S1) & Nick Lazzarini (S1) Jaimie Goodwin (S3) Jacque LeWarne (S11) & Zack Everhart ( S11). Posts about Jacque LeWarne written by dramaqueen Still, I gave a last- ditch, 11th hour effort and went straight to the theater box this next montage together, as Tanisha, Bridget AND Rudy had such quick changes to get back out. Posts about Tanisha and Rudy written by Whitney McIntosh. when Derek and Sara are on the dance floor together for the first time and he has .. I'm not sure if Zack and Jacque actually deserved better from this routine, because I still don't.
Very futuristic looking and probably could have jumped out of the Cirque de Soleil Xscape show. Tonight the kids get to do their solos in addition to the All-Star duets slated. Tanisha kicks off the solos—she throws every possible skill known to man in, with the ballroom prowess seeming almost secondary. I really wish I liked her personal solos more…I can appreciate the skill and technique but Mary has ruined me for wanting more ballroom content from ballroom contestants.
This week gives us words from the teachers, relatives and fellow performers that most inspired and influenced the kids in their development as dancers. Miami fame as well to thank for his early dance education; Victor gave the kid a scholarship.Rudy Abreu Reveals What Happened On His Dates With Jacque LeWarne! & Tanisha Belnap on SYTYCD!
Nice redemption for Victor, because I maintain that he got hosed during his season. Ricky is the positive light, the best friend that can always raise your spirits. Travis is pushing Ricky beyond his technical limits to try and help him put a lock on the win. And while it looks terribly simplistic, the lines and pictures the dancers produce are exquisite.
Mary marvels at the effortlessness and high echelon of technical prowess that Ricky has continued to display week upon week. Nigel feels that Ricky has grown to the point of transcending his already incredible skill and technique and becoming the dance.
She was working her fanny off to nail that technique and I give her props for that—AND she got a smidgen of sexy out in her performance demeanor. However, she still needed some more oomph in her execution. Valerie, amazingly, is safe this week. Boss really needed to get out of the house this summer because after tonight he belongs to Valerie.
Casey leaps and spins and dives his way through his solo…. Jacque might me making you a little too mellow, boo…. Casey has to bring out strong characterization again this week…. Casey had moments of looking tortured and seduced—good things for this particular number—and he was really working to hit those shapes and positions.
Plus I imagine jumping on and off of a spiderweb-shaped cargo net dangling had to be taxing as well. Mary admired the strength and commitment, and also recognized the increased sharpness and precision as the number built. Casey is in the bottom of the votes this week—not unexpected with fan favorites Ricky and Rudy as his competition.
Zack, who I fully expect to be down there with him, is the sleeper contestant of this pair and may edge him out for Top 6. Whether this will aid her chances of staying remains to be seen. Very nice work from her again this evening. Not many teachers would admit on national television that their student, despite their heart and passion, was just not good at it. Of course, not many would take them under their wing anyway and try to mold something out of them, either.
Oh yeah, SYTYCD!, Who has dated/is dating whom?
I think I rather like you, sir…. Unhealthy dysfunction at its best. Rudy is fighting for his spot. He is determined to be standing under that confetti, and powerwise he could do it. Except you Ricky, you stay gold. The routine played with dynamics: It was moving, evocative, and probably my favorite routine of the night. Usually by the Top 16 there are clear stand-out partnerships, but for right now it really depends on weekly performance and the luck of the draw on what dance styles they all get.

Some of her illusions looked cool, but then all I could think of was how that is what Catwoman would look like if she started taking Gotham Dance Academy classes between her burglaries. The few transitions the routine included had some shakiness, but the confidence of the partnership saved them from looking too unsure of the moves. Tanisha and Rudy did a comic book-inspired Dave Scott hip-hop routine, a smooth piece to Usher that had a lot of Tanisha showing off her flexibility and Rudy being impressed while wearing a fedora.
It seemed a lot more like a jazz routine to me, maybe because of the addition of so many flips and splits, but overall I was underwhelmed with the way they both danced it.
The way Tanisha and Rudy performed their hip-hop was the equivalent of someone drunkenly mumbling the words to a karaoke song. I expected more from these two after their Broadway routine last week. The musical choices are half the battle when winning the audience over, and perpetuating the use of great artists regardless of how many times they have been included in the season all ready is a great idea.
Jessica and Marcquet were classically beautiful, technically precise, and at some points they seemed to be floating ever so slightly, but those characteristics do not an entertaining routine make especially when one of the dancers is perilously close to being sent home.
Jessica has been the black widow of partners so far this season, and that will continue to be the case unless the other men in the bottom three absolutely fall apart. She deserves one chance to dance with a strong partner and see if that makes a difference in her charisma on stage.
Jessica and Marcquet get a Dmitry Chaplin foxtrot, where Marcquet is a businessman and Jessica is…a beautiful woman who works for him? Unlike Tanisha, Jessica had the opposite face problem: Marcquet was pulling his face a bit as well, but he mostly fell flat for the fourth time in a row for me. Sometimes, Mandy Moore tries to be Mia Michaels. She has her own artistic talents and points of view but at least once every season she puts out a routine where you can just tell how hard she is trying to be taken seriously.
The Nancy Meyers of dance, if you will. This routine seemed too earnest to be fun and too cheesy to be taken seriously. Something slightly darker or heavier may have allowed the routine to truly speak to the audience, but that was not to be. Fortunately, it should at least keep them out of the bottom three and allow them to be confident in their next routine should it be a choreography far outside of their comfort zones.
I know Serge is a ballroom dancer, but his movements for contemporary are just so right I want him to switch styles. She broke one of the cardinal rules of ballroom, that of the requirement with few exceptions to always keep your knees together unless in a lift or split.
Her feet were shuffling instead of snapping into place and her hips were dropping when her posture should have been pulling towards the ceiling. A happy routine requires the pearly whites, an intense routine requires giving face. Pin it to your dressing room mirrors, ladies. There were a lot of issues with Teddy and Emily preparing to do lifts or tricks and forgetting to dance in-between the tricks. Too much face pulling or a blank face can ruin otherwise impressive technique or partnering.
I am going to write one sentence about the costumes in this routine and then we are going to forget they ever graced the stage. Wiping my mind of that pink ruffled catastrophe, I was disappointed in a few moments of this routine but overall both Zack and Jacque showed tremendous growth as individual dancers and in their partnership. A muddle of a routine, but a decent performance. If that makes sense. I thought Zack embodied that fully in the routine: In the beginning, I thought Jacque was acting a bit too much, but even she got taken over by the ferocity of the dance.
Lil Wayne and Rick Ross Whitney: Well, this is a low point of the season.
