I loved the episode! I actually watched it REAL late on Wednesday. I loved Jessica, the sexy girl. I felt like that may be the best solo performance I've seen on the show, not just audition. It was REALLY good. It fit perfectly to the song and you could tell it was really well rehearsed.
Marie Poppins was probably my other favorite. I hear all the Fik-shun comments of dancing with Joy and I felt like that was her. My favorite thing was how it started with her explaining street dancing and how if you suck people just walk by, but if you capture them you know you got it. Then the dance, Fik-shun joining in, and then her at the end. She said it, no tricks, just a love for dance. It was really fantastic.
I also am in the Franchesca was just alright boat. I do think she was unique and it was good, but I truly wonder if she didn't have the disease if we'd even have seen her. I do think her story is worthy of the air time, but I'm not sure about the enormous accolades I've seen on Twitter. I saw that she was trending herself after the show when I was watching later on (didn't realize it at the time until I saw her come on) which is really fascinating because I'm not even sure I remember SYTYCD trending for the first episode (both were of course when I was watching at like 1 am EST in Miami).
I did love our Wichita Popper but I wish he was better trained and could manage something in the choreography. He got to live the dream a bit though with that 4 way battle (I forgot about Legacy! He was great his season and I love that he's still going).
I also want to echo a lot of the guest judge love. They really were fantastic.

Just saw the Tony Awards, I love that show. SYTYCD winner Melaine Moore was featured as a Peter Pan dancer in a new upcoming musical, and Choreographer Spencer Lift was part of the team that won for best musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring (sometime guest judge) Neil Patrick Harris
I really hope that Miley look alike doesn't make it to the top. Her dancing was fine, but her personality grated on my last nerve.
I loved when Fik-shun joined the popper girl for her dance, it was delightful. Anyone who can make the combo of popping and Sade work has got something special!

It was clear in that moment to tell from some of the hesitancy that she was used to performing solo, but I would love to see her work with someone like Fiction and see what we get! I hope she gets the chance, but there are some seriously gifted people auditioning, and 20 spots will go very quickly....
Take my advice. I am not using it.
This may not be a popular sentiment, and if so, I will stand alone. While I enjoy those type genres, and I do acknowledge there has to be an ability and a gift to be able to perform those kinds of dances well, I simply do not view them in the same way as I view the more conventional kinds of dancing - and that includes contemporary because it is obvious that contemporary dancers have usually had years of background dance training much of which is rigorous and often downright grueling.
I loved watching Fik-shun. He was personality on a stick. He had stage presence that simply oozed out, and he danced the other genres very well, considering.....I couldn't argue too much when he won.
That said, I just don't want to see the standard become the alternative types of dance win the day - I just don't want to see them beat out someone who has slaved to win. I won't gripe and carry on, though,

You do not stand alone, bloomers. I'm right there behind or in front of you or at your side.

Im so far behind was out of town at a wedding just saw the episode and all i have to say is This is a mans world! Loved Jessica OMG. Also really liked Jenna, but i have to say the bald woman didnt really do much for me i wasnt impressed not to sound mean just being honest
Yeah, they lose me when they go too far in that direction too. Not that I can't enjoy a great choreographed hip hop now and then but I still want my other dances and someone who can do them.
Will you accept my dancing rose bro as a 'special powers' idol?
