SYTYCD Results – Week 6

:( I’m sad to see Kherington and Gev go. They both had a rough week…

Who Knew?

Some of you may have noticed that my music player is missing. Well, it’s not missing, I just moved it to the footer of my blog. And it no longer automatically plays when you open my page. Why? Apparently there is a group called BAM! – Bloggers Against Music. Here is their description:

Are you sick and tired of blogs that automatically bombard you with their loud and obnoxious music? Do you frantically scroll down endless sidebars looking for that music/video stop button?Are you frustrated with having to sit through 20+ seconds of music some blogger put on their site? If so, join BAM! – BLOGGERS AGAINST MUSIC! Now, don’t be daft… We aren’t against music all together, some of us LOVE music but we are against MUSIC ON BLOGS THAT WE DIDN’T ASK TO HEAR!

Someone kindly (ha!) told me about this group and I kind of agreed with them. So I made an adjustment to my music player, but it’s still there for your enjoyment if you want it!

Jumping on the bandwagon…

I’ve left a bunch of messages on your blogs, so I guess it’s my turn to post this!

1. Add a comment on my blog and leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn’t matter if you knew me a little or a lot just do anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.It’s actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I’ll assume you’re playing the game and I’ll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don’t want to play on your blog, or if you don’t have a blog, I’ll leave my memory of you in my comments!

So You Think You Can Dance Recap – Week 6

(Note: Fox must be cracking down on people releasing pictures and video, so I’m not sure that I’ll have any this week…)

Yay! New couple pairings and solos start this week! I like it when America gets to do the elimination instead of the judges. I also like it when you get to see each individual dancer when they aren’t in “panic” mode and trying to dance for their life. There was a surprise right at the beginning of the show – Jessica has a few broken ribs and she’s out of the competition! So Comfort is back! (Sal – you should be happy!!)

One tradition I would like to see go away? When everyone makes a stupid face and holds up their number while Cat reads off their phone number.

Couples

Joshua and Courtney

#1 – I thought this was a good pairing since Katee & Courtney are both contemporary dancers and Joshua & Gev are hip hop. They did really good, although Joshua was creeping me out a little with all his touching of Courtney during the judging. I guess he’s really happy to have been paired with her! I also wasn’t feeling his ponytail. Yuk!

#2 – Double yuk on Joshua’s ponytail and the shirt. But I LOVED Courtney in this piece. It flowed really well. Joshua has stepped up and really learned how to do different styles of dance.

Mark and Kherington

#1 – Ouch. There was trouble right out of the gate with this piece. Their turns were off and then Mark almost didn’t get his arm over Kherington’s head during her turn. They looked completely uncomfortable the whole time.

#2 – They were much more comfortable with this piece. But it wasn’t exciting at all. They are in trouble…. “Canned Heat” reminds me of Center Stage – I love that movie! (Don’t even remind me that Napoleon Dynamite ruined it…)

Comfort and Twitch

#1 – Fake it ’til you make it. That had to be their motto during this piece. They both looked like they were faking it. Badly. Very loose turns. Blah.

#2 – Thank goodness for a hip hop routine!! Yay! They really showed what they could do with this piece. Comfort needs to close her mouth when she dances though! I love Chris Brown. I’m glad they used this song.

Katee and Will

#1 – Yay! I was hoping to see them together because they are the strongest dancers. I liked this piece by Tyce, but I don’t think it showcased them very well.

#2 – HOLY. COW. My favorite of the night. Will’s pirouette gave me chills! Too bad Katee’s foot got stuck under her leg – it would have been perfect otherwise!

Chelsie and Gev

#1 – Chelsie is again the stronger dancer of the pair. I thought the choreography was interesting, especially with the song Sonia used.

#2 – Again, Gev is lucky he has Chelsie….Meh.

Solos

Chelsie – Good, as always.

Gev – Was it just me or did it look like his foot got stuck on his leg hop? Other than that, it was good.

Courtney – Good too. The large shirt always seems to say “contemporary”. :)

Mark – I wondered if he would do this piece because they showed a clip of him doing in during Vegas week. He is quirky, but I think he did his style well.

Comfort – I’m still not a fan of her solos…

Twitch – He seemed a little uncomfortable doing his solo tonight. Something was off. I just can’t put my finger on it.

Katee- I love “This Woman’s Work”. I think she did a great job and I liked her dress.

Will – He didn’t get going for a few seconds, but I thought it was good once he started.

Kherington -It was alright. Did you check out her little booty shake at the end there??

Joshua – Bringin out the Michael Jackson. I thought he did a great job. It always takes me by surprise when he does hip hop because he does so well at the other genres.

Predictions?

Bottom 2:
Kherington & Comfort
Mark & Gev

Eliminated: Sadly, I have to go with Kherington and Gev.

Seriously…WHAT IS THAT??!!??

Chloe was yelling from the bathroom that she wanted to AASH, AASH! (wash her hands) When I got to the bathroom, this is what I found in her hot little hand:

After my screaming and dry heaving subsided, I discovered it was actually a chocolate marshmallow. Whew! Chloe thinks I’m crazy now. Just take a look at her face! I was laughing so hard the picture is blurry.

It’s Addicting…

So I’ve never really been a scrapbooker. But digital scrapbooking in wonderful! I love it that I don’t have to perfectly cut and measure and glue. Hooray! I guess it’s kind of the same roadblock I have with writing in a journal. It’s just much easier for me to type on my blog! I will be posting a few of my creations soon…

SYTYCD Par-tay!

Anyone interested in coming over to watch So You Think You Can Dance tomorrow? We have high definition!

Family home evening at Brick Oven with the Parkinsons. Table for 9?? Sheesh, we have a lot of kids….

Sing it with me –

On Monday night the world around
Happy families can be found
Doing what they know is right
Monday’s having family night
Home evening, home evening
That’s the night we like the best
Home evening, home evening
Having it our family’s blessed….

Musical Monday – Madonna and JT

Why? Because this is Chloe’s favorite song…tick, tock, tick, tock.

Warning: Hazardous Road

Sunday – A day to enjoy a leisurely drive with your family. We used to do it all the time when I was little. We would go up to Bridal Veil and feed the ducks. What do we do now that I’m a Blaser? We take our 3 children up a road that has a large sign with bold letters saying:

Should this deter us from taking our Sunday drive? Nah! The road was pretty bumpy, but it was beautiful! Especially when we got to the top where there was a huge field of wildflowers and you could see Strawberry Reservoir in the distance.

We counted 15 squirrels that were almost put to death by Red Rocker (Marc’s truck). We also played the rhyming game and “I Spy”. We only lasted about 3 hours before the kids lost it and mass hysteria ensued. I guess we better take a few more family drives to get ready for our 6 hour flight to Hawaii! Thanks to Marc for taking us on a fun family adventure!
