Sisters Kisha & Jen settle their unfinished business on the Amazing Race

From the beaches of Rio to a trailer park in the Florida Keys, sisters Kisha & Jen overcame past demons and tough competition to settle their unfinished business and win The Amazing Race.

Order of Finish:
1.    Kisha & Jen
2.    Flight Time & Big Easy
3.    Gary & Mallory

THE WINNERS
With eight eliminated teams cheering them on, sisters Kisha & Jen ran to the Finish Line where Phil declared them the winners of the race and the one million dollar prize. The emotional sisters told Phil they planned to help their mom start her own business. Jen added, “There aren’t any words to describe our mom. She is absolutely amazing so it’s just going to be a great thing to give her something that she’s given to us.”

After finish the race in second place, the Globetrotters congratulated Kisha & Jen calling them “the most consistent team throughout the race. They never struggled. We got beat out by a couple of girls, but that’s okay.” Big Easy later said, “It was fun from start to finish. It was hard. We laughed. We cried. I’m happy we did it.”

Ending the race in third place, Mallory said of the experience with her father, “We came back and we did our unfinished business. We wanted to make it around the world so badly and we got that. We know money’s not everything and the experience is priceless for sure.”

Co-winner Kisha closed by remarking, “I’m glad to have run this race with Jen for a second time. Winning this race shows that she’s not my little sister. She’s a competitor. To run this race with her was a great experience.”

American Idol Finale review: Crystal Bowersox Knocks out Lee DeWyze

If anyone that is reading this article remembers Muhammad Ali, you will certainly remember the rope-a-dope.  Ali had used the technique in prior fights, but it became famous in his historic battle to retake the world championship from George Foreman in what was certain  to be a humiliation for Ali.

Ali sat back for seven rounds and let Foreman do his worst.  He essentially played possum and made it look like the only man in the fight was Foreman.  Then, gradually, he emerged, stinging Foreman with shots George didn’t even know existed and certainly had never felt in his career.  The slow motion shots of Foreman’s head being twisted unnaturally b y Ali’s shots with sweat and blood flying are not to be forgotten.  Ali fooled everyone, including big George.

Why do we bring this up here?  Because tonight’s competition was not close.  And one performer had laid back on the ropes for the past several weeks,  performing well enough to stay in the competition, but never knocking anyone dead.  This performer had been knocking them dead the first several weeks, but smartly pulled back.  The other performer worked to the front spot fighting to prove that this was not going to be a one horse race.

The Crystal Bowersox Strategy

The rope-a-dope worked.  We believe Crystal held back the last several weeks intentionally to make this her victory in this finale more convincing.  She brought all we remember her for when she started, and we do not think this was any accident.  She came out with her knock-out punches after seeming to play possom hanging on the ropes.  Now there is no question, she dealt the final knockout blow.

Crystal did not just beat Lee, she humiliated him.  Lee never had a chance.

Lee made it much worse.  Earlier in the season we have noted that Lee has often been OA.  He has had bizarre overplayed performances with church choirs and bagpipes and God knows what, and whenever he does this, he looks stupid.

Instead of just being himself, he did it again.  He had huge choirs and overplayed performances that he would hever do under normal circumstances.  Other than his first rather good performance of the Boxer, he had choirs everywhere.  and they ate up his perforamnce alive revealing his insigificance.  They diminished the voice and the unique nature of the man and left us with wondering what happened to the performer we liked over the last several weeks.

We would try to sum up each song and give the points for each, but Crystal nailed every song, and other than his first song, Lee sounded silly.  He has such a recordable voice and it was buried in noise.  He will still make more money than the petty million dollar token trust fund he would have won anyway, so it won’t matter much.

But we can guarantee, Lee will make it on his voice, and he will never make it if he tries to become the lead in a church choir with bagpipes.

12/16 SYTYCD 6 America’s New Favorite Dancer is…

top3_sytcyd6

Not Ryan di Lello. He is the first to go and is in 6th place. We are watching the show live and we’ll report the results as soon as we get them.

* 6th Place: Ryan DiLello
* 5th Place: Ashleigh DiLello
* 4th Place: Ellenore Scott
* 3rd Place: Kathryn McCormick
# 2nd Place: Jakob Karr
# 1st Place: Russell Ferguson

A more subdued and tamed Adam Lambert in a grey suit performed “Whataya Want From Me?” another cut from his album, For Your Entertainment.

Russell hurt his leg somehow and is crying in pain…

And now for the results!!

Wow! We never saw it coming! 20 year old Russell from Boston, Ma was the dark horse (no pun intended!) in the competition. We have our eyes set out for Jakob Karr. He should have been the winner but America is voting not just us. Still, Russell is an inspiration to any hiphop dancers. Congratulations! See you next season everyone. That season was fast, huh?!

America’s Got Talent Finale: Chicken catcher Kevin Skinner wins over cancer survivor Barbara Padilla

kevinskinner_wins

This is what this show is all about! The unassuming country singer, known as the “chicken catcher’ Kevin Skinner wins over Barbara Padilla, gifted and survivor opera singer. We really liked Kevin’s very first performance. He blew it on his last. That was the Aerosmith “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” version we wouldn’t want to hear again! Over all Barbara Padilla was consistent, flawless and a powerhouse and should have won the competition. She is destined for greater things. She should be just fine.

8/5 So You Think You Can Dance Finale Night, Last Top 4 Performances

This is it! After So You Think You Can Dance premiered on May 21, 2009 we have arrived to the end and down to the final performances of the fifth season.

We have watched the show week after week, hungry for stars to come out from these unknown dancers, hungry for big memorable performances but we sit here on the Finale and we are left half-full- unsatiated, not fully satisfied. We keep comparing STYCD 5 from last Season and the season before that- it really fell short.

The judges make up for that fact by saying they have the most technical dancers out of all season and everyone’s equal but Nigel also keeps reminding these dancers even towards the last six dancers that they are still looking for the “stars” to come out. The only stars we see coming close to being called that are Evan Kasprzak and Jeanine Mason. The judges would insist on Kayla Radomski being a star- she has been the ‘judges’ pet (esp Nigel’s) since auditions, we think otherwise.

Again, these are all amazing, great dancers but somehow the x-factor is slightly missing. There’s an ingredient we couldn’t quite pinpoint that was there in Benjie, Joshua, Katee, Twitch, Mark, Chelsie, and Courtney, even Lacey, Gev and Kherington.

We feel this Season is between Evan Kasprzak and Jeanine Mason becoming “America’s Favorite Dancer.” But America could shock us by picking out Brandon Bryant or Kayla Radomski in the end.

Our own personal pick stand between Evan and Jeanine. I think they have the most ‘winning star qualities’ one could look for in a talent.

These are the current standing:

top4_sytycd5

Week: 6/11 6/18 6/25 7/2 7/9 7/16 7/23 7/30 8/6
Contestant Result
Brandon Bryant Btm 4
Evan Kasprzak
Jeanine Mason Btm 3 Btm 3
Kayla Radomski Btm 3 Btm 3 Btm 4

Out of all the dancers, Evan Kasprzak managed to remain “safe” this whole time. This guy has never been in the bottom three! Brandon was in the bottom three once. Kayla have been there three times while Jeanine twice. If this is a predictor of how America votes, then Evan can win this competition.

>> Watch Brandon and Jeanine in a Paso Doble.

>> Watch Jeanine and Kayla dance together in a Mia Michaels contemporary

>> Watch Jeanine and Evan in a Sonya Tayeh Jazz piece
