Semi Finals

~ So worried that Bristol will make it to the finals… which just isn’t right. She should have gone home long time ago.

Round One

Brandy and Maks
– WTF is Maks wearing
– Good Spanish movements for the music being non Spanish
– Brandy’s posture needs work for this dance. Her right arm is in the wrong position
– Interesting ending… not really a fan
Len: Came out 100% Lot of aggression and attack
Bruno: Lots of anger. Got the aggression out. A little unsteady at parts
Carrie Ann: Amazing passionate and connected to the character. Good upper-body shapes
Score: 9, 9, 9 = 27

Jennifer and Derek
– Wow we didn’t hear her complaining!
– This is such a great Cha Cha song as well as west coast
– Great New Yorkers!
– Ok her “solo” kind of sucked in terms of actual dancing
Len: Good technique and high performance. Introduce fun and entertainment
Bruno: Vibrant and sexy. plus excursion was amazing
Carrie Ann: Not disappointing
Score: 10, 10, 10 = 30 Sorry but didn’t deserve that because her “solo” didn’t have all that much dancing! Come one seriously! Biased…

Bristol and Mark
– So utterly blank faced and seems disconnected. The dancing is there but she just looks like she’s doing the moves with no feeling behind them. Even those this dance is serious, it still to me lacks emotion and being PRESENT in the dance and feelings. She doesn’t deserve to be in the semi-finals let alone the finals
Carrie Ann: This is what they’ve been asking for. Apparently came out and “nail” it
Len: Has determination… But this was their best dance
Bruno: Never thought he’d see this. Had good lines
Score: 9, 9, 9 = 27 UM That so wasn’t as good as Brandy’s. UG

Kyle and Lacey
– Good Solo
– Good try at hip action
– Good Shimmys
– Not a whole lot of basic Samba step in hold
– Good ending!
Len: There is no drama. Just get on with it. Bionic Bum! More “Bounce to the Ounce” Great rhythm. Great Entertainment
Bruno: “Bouncing bundle of joy” Irresistible.
Carrie Ann: Good pelvic action. Amazing blend of technique and entertainment
Score: 10, 9, 10 = 29

Round Two

Brandy and Maks
– I had a feeling this dance would suit her
– a little closer body contact would better… there we go
– Very sharp. dramatic
– Please point the toes!
– Very innovative lifts
– Would have liked to see a little more dancing
Len: moved into and out of lifts with ease. Good lines. Loved the creation of atmosphere!
Bruno: Great emotional depth. Great Extension
Carrie Ann: Truly a moment with someone who’s dynamic.
Score: 10, 10, 10 = 30 Well deserved!

~ who’s the guy sitting between Tony and Susan Lucci?

Jennifer and Derek
– Not a fan of the non traditional hold
– Good rise and fall
– It was good but I’m just so not a fan of hers that it turns me off. She’s had dance experience and just like Nicole last season, it’s un fair
Um.. lost power, missed the comments
Score: 10, 10, 10 = 30
60/60 for the night

Bristol and Mark
– Not sure I like the outfits. Just to dark! Needs color
– Very good rise and fall
– But utterly blank in her face!!
– WTF is this music anyway?
– Come on show some emotion!
– Very nice movements technique wise but very bland character and emotionally wise
Len: Had a very nice haunting feeling. Very Musical
Bruno: Liked the different approach. Very haunting. Had good lines. Had the most journey
Carrie Ann: There were moments that drifted out. A little to much space. Come very far though
Score: 8, 9, 9 = 26
Total: 53/60

Kyle and Lacy
– Interesting music
– Very sharp on Lacey’s part
– Still pigeon toed
– flicks aren’t as sharp
– Very crazy in those kicks. not at sharp as it could be
Len: Performed with a lot of attack and enthusiasm
Bruno: Strong, sharp, attack. Can switch out attack and entertainment
Carrie Ann: Reminds her of Emmitt.
Score: 10, 9, 10 = 29
