    Today I really noticed their weight difference...Heidi and Benji (the cousins) are complete bursts of fire, and Donyelle to me usually seems a little slow when she's with him.

    Donyelle is in NO way fat, but it seems like Benji is just lighter on his feet.

    I like her too, but I never vote. The more votes they say were called in the more convinced I am that my vote wouldn't matter anyway.

    I want Travis to win this, but would also be happy if Heidi or Natalie won.

    Ivan and Donyelle should be eliminated tomorrow.

    Ivan and Donyelle clearly should go -- the others are just whole levels above them. I think that Ivan and Natalie will go. But, Donyelle's contemporary solo was just pitiful -- and highlighted her weaknesses. She should have stuck with hip hop. She did the moves but there are high school girls all across the country that would have had better jumps and contemporary moves -- much less Natalie who shone in her solo of that style. Natalie had the best solo (or Benji) in a night where it seemed same old same old.

    I liked the Jive, but thought the Contemporary of Ivan and Natalie boring. Still Ivan clearly is not up to Travis and Benji level. Natalie was clearly brought down by her partner. It is clear that the choreographers bring the dance down to the weakest link.

    I thought the waltz was just ok, mostly boring but well done boring -- but the Afro pop was one of the best things I have seen on the show. Heidi was amazing. I expected that from Travis in his element, but Heidi has really grown and she got tons of praise. Travis's solo was slightly better than usual but same old stuff. His spins are truly great but really old. Like Melody's leg kick last year (and I loved her).

    Benji was terrific as usual, but the choreography seemed to have been brought down for Donyelle. She did not have Broadway style at all, but she was good in the hip hop, though. Benji's solo was very good, but he has the advantage of only having done two so it didn't seem old. Still, I can't understand how he spins so fast and it moved along really well.

    Benji and Heidi stole the show for me, especially with their afro pop routine.

    Donyelle DID have the strangest look on her face after she finished her solo. I can't even figure out what might have happened.... She looked almost completely disoriented.


    ETA: sorry about the double post....didn't notice till this was posted

    Ouch D:

    I agree on some levels, I liked the jazz. I loved the Contemporary, I think Ivan looks quite mature when he does Contemporary. I do think Natalie was brought down by him though. Her solo was beautiful, as she is. Ivan of course looks too childish

    I MISSED THE AFRO POP. But the clips looks amazing, some the movements look really great wished I seen it! D: Heidi's Solo was fun as always, and Travis is brilliant with his spins.

    Ouch again, but yes Unfortantly she did seem a bit lacking D: Benji is just joy bundled up in a cute dork XD His solo was just, he makes me smile. He radiates happiness. Donyelle's solo was good, I liked it. It had agnst to it, but the ending was a bit off for me. She did seem a bit hurt.

    All in all a decent show. I hope Ivan is gone, and for the girls I'm not sure I love them all! And thanks for Kyrjar for the post, I blame the ADHD for the bad memory recall.
