Caught last night's show, and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of most of the dancers. Most did pretty good,
and glad they re-capped last week's show to remind me how they did last week. I did have some negative reaction to a few things though. Just my opinion, of course, but here goes....
First, I thought the new "dance troupe" was pretty lousy. It almost seemed as though they didn't even practice enough. I thought I caught a few mistakes with poor sloppy hand-holds/slipping type stuff. I was not impressed at all with them (mainly the girls), and was wondering who in the heck they were. If they are going to bring out dance troupes,
the least they should do is bring out some excellent jaw dropping dancers.
This group had my jaw dropping for all the wrong reasons. My jaw dropped because of how shocked I was about how bad they were.
When Chris B. came out, I was very upset. Like others, when he did his first song, I totally changed the channel. I just cannot give this guy any support. I'm sorry, but he comes across as a jerk to me. He actually
seems to be giving snide looks to the camera, as if he thinks he is "all this" + "all that". I cannot stand the guy. He seems to think he is better than everyone.
When the news came out that he broke a window, that proves
he still has anger issues. I also still cannot get over him hitting Rijuanna. Since he recently threw a temper tantrum and broke a window, it proves without a doubt that this guy has serious anger issues. IMO, he needs professional help. I hope he gets it for his own benefit, as he could change himself for the better if he seeks help.
When Chris came on for his 2nd song, I thought I would give him a chance. But to me, this looked + sounded like a total "lip synch" nightmare. He made no efforts to pretend he was actually singing live. Other than a cool light
show, I was not impressed. I turned it about 1/2 way through, since I cannot stand any lip synching performances (not just his).
I flipped it back right in time to see the very end and catch him SMIRKING again to the camera. Maybe some day when he grows up and matures, I will change my opinion of him, but as of now, he honestly makes me nauseas.
Back to DANCING:
Overall, I liked a lot of the pairs and most did really well. I am real happy about that and very impressed, as it is much harder than they made it look. They looked like they were having a lot of fun, and their dancing was really good for the most part.
My Favorite DANCER pair so far is Kristie/Maks. Kristie is really trying very hard, and I commend her for it. I hope she can improve to the point of doing much better. I would love to see her make the final 3 or 2, but am
concerned that she wont make it that far. She will need to pick it up, due to the strong competition.
I also like Wendy/Tony. I agree her dancing was not that great, but I am so glad to see people like her + Kristie get out there even though they may not be the most petite type woman. It shows everyone that average people can get out there and dance and have fun too.
I was OK with Mike+Lacey going home, as that dress-up number they picked definitely didn't sit well.
Anyway, OVERALL, I was very pleased with the dancers, and just hope that any future musical guests are not people buried in negative controversary.
I mean seriously, who are they going to have on next.....Kanye West, Charlie Sheen, or an encour dance performance from Lawrence Taylor?
