Update on Knicks City Dancers Auditions, Meet the Top 30 Finalists!

asia_nitollano1

The auditions are over. 30 dancers remain from 350, selected to move on to Knicks City Dancers Training Camp (July 7-9). From there, 17 dancers will be chosen for the team, and the 18th member will be left up to online voters to pick from among 5 finalists. Included in the Top 30 is Bronx native, Asia Nitollano, who won the reality TV show Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search for the Next Doll back in 2007 and became the next member of the Pussycat Dolls.

Rumors spread that she wasn’t the best match for the group, and in fact, after she won she ditched the Pussycat Dolls to pursue her own solo career. After signing with The Inc. Records (formerly Murder Inc. Records), we still haven’t seen a single release… so what is going on? We guess her solo career wasn’t cutting it…

Meet the Top 30

6/17 SYTYCD 5 Top 18 Performance Night, Where was the ‘Fun’?

Sometimes, the sophomore performance is just plain lacking. Such was this week. It is not that the dancers weren’t great, but last week, the opening of the 20 top dancers competition, was incredible. The creativity and the style, both on the part of the choreographers and dancers was phenomenal. We have watched that show no less than five times this past week because it was spectacular.

So we entered into tonight thinking, these people are going to step it up even further. We were wrong. The show stumbled. The dances weren’t as good nor as sharp. Many otherwise excellent dancers did not show up when it counted. And in general, the choreographers were rather dull, save for a couple of dances. When Disco is the best dance of the night…you have a problem.

1. Randi Evans and Evan Kasprzak Jive, “Shake A Tail Feather”—Ray Charles

Choreographed by Louis van Amstel

The choreographer forgot how important leg movement is in this dance. Watch a Benji jive, for example, and the legs are living and kicking the entire time. There was very little of that in this dance, which left us wondering if we were watching the jive at all. These guys didn’t bring it and also went first, but we blame the choreographer, at least in part, for designing a dance that didn’t feel much like the style it was intended to be. Randi showed little unique personality, but has good technique and is a peppy dancer. Evan, well, for some reason, this wasn’t his night. Seems like there was enough blame to go around for everyone. (6/10)

2. Melissa Sandvig and Ade Obayomi Jazz, “24 Hours” (The Aston Shuffle A-Bomb Remix) —Terry Poison

Choreographed by Sonya Tayeh

The music on this song was horrible. It made absolutely no connection for us, and we feel as though the dancers started off with little connection to it as well. But Melissa and Ade brought it after a bit of a slow start. Their movements were unique and strong. Ade is physically incredible, which lends itself well to this kind of dance, where expression is so very important. Melissa was on target and in sync. We loved the performance. (8/10)

3. Caitlin Kinney and Jason Glover Hip-hop, “Missin’ You” —Trey Songz

Choreographed by Shane Sparks

There are times you just can see the pain in a dance, and it isn’t the intended pain of the choreographer. While they were smiling, the dancers were struggling throughout. Jason was able to hit the moves stronger and with more feeling. Caitlin had no feel for it at all, making Hip Hop look more like Contemporary. They danced great, but forgot to do Hip Hop. (6/10)

4. Janette Manrara and Brandon Bryant Disco, “Loving Is Really My Game”—Brainstorm

Choreographed by Doriana Sanchez

This was probably the best dance of the night. The tempo was incredibly fast, which brought an energy to the performance that has been lacking in prior disco sets. Despite a minor stumble, Janette was incredible, performing a V Split that hurt us to watch. Brandon, well, there is nothing he can’t do. Amazing performance for both of them and the best of the night. (9.5/10)

Top 18 Solo Introduction and Dance Recap

5. Asuka Kondoh and Vitolio Jeune Waltz, “Dreams Are More Precious” —Enya

Choreographed by Louis van Amstel

The waltz is a very difficult dance to pick up if you are not graced with training. Neither dancer is truly the type we would expect to be a champion Waltz dancer. Asuka, however, is graceful, and she did not want to be in the bottom three this week, and it showed. She was elegant throughout, smooth in every move even when her partner was less so, and dressed in stunning fashion. She was flawless in this dance which helped Vitolio. Vitolio was strong and on tempo. He was able to pull off every necessary lifts. But his leg movements were anything but the Waltz. He brings down the couple’s score, but Asuka was a 9. (8/10)

6. Kayla Radomski and Max Kapitannikov Pop-Jazz, “Hot Like Wow” —Nadia Oh

Choreographed by Brian Friedman

We think the judges on this show really underestimate Max’s talent. He is an incredibly strong dancer and, more importantly, in this phase of the competition, an amazing partner. Kayla is spectacular, but Max makes her even more special. This team pulled off an amazing dance that was so close to Janette and Brandon that we have to give them the same score. But Janette and Brandon won by a hair. (9.25/10)

7. Karla Garcia and Jonathan Platero Contemporary, “Falling Slowly” —The Frames (Original The Frames Music Video )

Choreographed by Stacey Tookey

Jonathan is not a contemporary dancer, but he nailed this performance. Karla was phenomenal. We weren’t crazy overall about the choreography. They weren’t the best of the night, but Jonathan proved to us that he is a serious contender. Karla always was. We also place them at the top of the night, losing slightly to Janette and Brandon. (9/10)

8. Jeanine Mason and Phillip Chbeeb Tango, “Violento (Up Mix)”–Bailongo!

Choreographed by Tony Meredith

If you cannot swim, you tend not to jump into the deep end of the pool. This show tends to throw dancers into the deep end even when they cannot swim. And Phillip could not swim. He is brilliant at what he does, but his attempt tonight was rather pathetic. It reminded us of Dancing With The Stars, with Jeanine as the Pro and Phillip as a wanna be star hoping to not be embarrassed. The result makes Jeanine even more phenomenal to us. Despite Phillip being awkward and plodding, she made every move gracefully and professionally. She gets a 9. Phillip a 4. Total score? Who knows, but we figure a (7/10).

9. Ashley Valerio and Kupono Aweau Hip-hop, “Imma Be” —The Black Eyed Peas

Choreographed by Shane Sparks

Now, when you get to go last, you have a chance to really nail the routine and get the most votes because the audience will remember you best. Ashley and Kupono stepped out and embarrassed themselves. There was no style to their dance. It hit about as hard as a helium balloon. And the moves were as crisp as over cooked spaghetti. Nothing about this performance did anything for us. In the other dancers, one dancer was significantly better than the other. In this dance, neither did it for us. (6/10)

Overall, tonight was a disappointment with only three great dances. Last week we are keeping in our DVR and will watch again and again. This week gets erased permanently.

Out of it all though emerges the bottom three. And it is pretty obvious who they are. Ashley and Kupono, Randi and Evan, & finally Caitlin and Jason were our bottom three. Much disappointment after being so stellar last week. Any one could go, but we think Ashley and Kupono were the flattest of the three couples. Randi was not incredible. But Caitlin and Jason were a huge disappointment because we expected more of Caitlin than this. So tough to call the actual bottom, and it will come down the solos. We think that Ashley and Kupono should depart as a couple, but it is so close at the bottom this week, that it just plain doesn’t matter which of the three goes. Problem is, in this show, one bad week and you could be gone, but next week could be your best of the season. It is just not possible to know.

We can narrow it down though and it was much easier to pick out the potential losers this week. Then again, America often mislead us with their votes that totally render a surprising bottom three. We’ll see.

SYTYCD 5 Results Night Opens with ‘Boom Boom Pow’ Top 20 Group Dance

Behind the scenes of the the Shane Sparks choreography

SYTYCD Season 4 Finale: America’s Favorite Dancer is Joshua Allen!

This show can often shock us with its results. In each episode, the audience has made us eat crow, and this week was no different, except our pollsters were asked to dine with us. We barely had enough to go around.

In a different approach to earlier weeks, we will cover the results first, because that is what was the focus of this show. The results were already in, the envelopes sealed and the cards dealt. But we will review the show in its entirety after this discussion, and if you didn’t see it, there were numerous surprises you will find entertaining and some important hints at what will be on the tour, so please read the entire review and vote in our polls. We put a ton of effort into it for you and would love your input. Thank you.

We could totally understand Joshua winning. After trailing in our polls by as much as 3-1, he made a major surge as the show was nearing its start. It was close enough that the telephone vote could have gone either way, but seeing Twitch there on the stage with Joshua made it surreal, like when you watch a movie and you say, “That could never happen in real life”.

Katee was offered a runner up prize of $50,000.00. We get the impression the show added this surprise when they realized how unexpected the result was. Katee took it well and followed with an excellent performance; ironically, it was with Twitch.

This has been a year where the best have often been eliminated in favor of the underdog, but in this case, whoever was dialing those phones were punching in the wrong keys. Our Polls had Twitch as dead last, out-voted 5-1!! Statistically, it all seems rather odd that the telephone dialers felt so differently.

After 35 hours of show, 167 performances and 60 million votes, for Twitch to be in the final two was farcical. We believe this demonstrates that there is something wrong with the system of voting on the show? Twitch placed in front of Katee?? Twitch is a great street dancer, but he shouldn’t have placed in front of Mark, Chelsie, Courtney or Will, let alone Katee!

But in a way, there was some justice. Katee, by being selected as the top woman performer got a $50,000.00 prize. For coming in second, Twitch got diddly.

And Now For the Show.

This was a wonderful show, well choreographed and presented. Let’s start by introducing our “jidges.” Mia Michaels, Adam Shankman, Debbie Allen, Mia Michaels, Nigel Lythgoe and Little C.

The show started with a move through a number of flashbacks from the season. It was quick, but brought back some fond memories.

They then brought back the entire top 20 to dance to a set choreographed by Shane Sparks and danced to “BOOM”, by SIN feat. T-Pain. This was basic hip-hop. The choreography was fun, bringing out some of the best talent on the show. One move where Gev slides under the line of women as they each jump over him. As Little C says, it was “buck”. They then clustered into a group and everyone gradually drops to the floor leaving only the final four standing. Cute metaphor yes?

So the show moved to letting the six “jidges” choose their favorite set from the season. These are likely the sets that will be performed on the tour, so make sure you don’t miss them. Nigel Lythgoe had first pick and selected one of our favorites, and one we already said would be on the tour, “Bollywood”, which may be more appropriately spelled “Bali-Wood”.

Katee and Joshua were at the ready and began their routine. You could tell how much these two love to perform with each other. There is no point in presenting an encore of our prior review of this piece, other than to say these guys gave us goose bumps once again, and you can watch it here.

Mary selected Courtney and Gev, performing to “Wishing on a Star” by Rose Royce.  This piece has a richer feel than any performed to songs by Ford Taurus.  The set had some of the sexiest moves in the show this year with Courtney showing how provocative she can be. Had this been a dance in her repertoire last night, the results of this competition may have been different.

Surprise 1

Now, for a break, there was a popping championship, incorporating two of the poppers that the judges voted through to Vegas. The first, Philip Chbeeb, had to resign before going to Vegas because he contracted pneumonia. And Robert Muraine resigned after getting to Vegas when he realized that there was much more to the show than just popping. Neither could have won the competition, but their popping skills defy everything we know about physics, so they are clearly worth watching compete.

This was the first time Robert and Philip met and they went head to head. Robert went first, and did some basic moves. Philip looked unfazed and moved into a set of his own that was quite challenging. But then Robert stole the rest of the show with moves that could not be duplicated by any other human on the planet. This kid is a major freak show with the way he can move his body. Robert finished by mimicking Philip’s signature move easily. Adam Shankman concurred with what we had said to each other half way through the performance, “Robert, you are a freak of nature!”. The judges voted Robert the winner 5-1. We have no idea what he won, but it was fun.

Adam Shankman called Twitch and Comfort back to the stage, for their set performed to “Forever” by Chris Brown. This hip-hop piece has been reviewed on our site before and will be on the tour. It is freakish how good it gets when these two fantastic hip hop dancers hook up. The finale Russian walk and heart pump are classic and only created and performed this well by artists in the top of their field.

Little C called out Chelsie and Mark to perform to “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis. This was a classic, and they took it another step as they continued to prove why they are champions. Had things played out differently, these two could have easily been in the finals instead of Twitch and Courtney. And we believe that this dance shows that America may have erred on calling for their elimination.

Surprise 2

Mary Murphy then surprised even Nigel by taking the stage in a hot short red dress dancing with D’mitri from last season, with his shirt fully open. Mary demonstrated she still has the legs to move on the floor. She wore the outfit that Courtney should have worn last night in the Jive. Had Courtney worn that red, frilly dress, instead of a one-piece bathing suit, we know that dance would have been much better received.

Mia Michaels then called on Katee and Will for the classic danced to “Imagine” by David Archuleta. If you remember, earlier in the season, this dance was performed to near perfection in the competition, but Katee bumped her head moving under Will’s arm. This time, it was flawless and brought the entire crowd to its feet as well as the judges. This demonstrated that these two were the best dancers in this competition. America does not like to be told whom to vote for, but sometimes the experts really do know best. These two were perfect.

Adam Shackman called on Mark and Courtney dancing to the Garden by Mirah. This is the sexy Burlesque piece where Courtney wears a single net stocking half torn and Mark distinguishes his performance with the look of Alex Delarge, played by Malcolm McDowell, from “A Clockwork Orange”. Great set and we look forward to it on the tour.

First Elimination

They then brought out the four finalists to cut Courtney. She knew she wouldn’t beat Katee. She got a nice bouquet of flowers. She took the loss well, as she should, because she is a star now and will be cheered again and again on the tour and after that in every performance of which she is a part.

They then had the final five men perform Nigel’s piece choreographed to “Five Guys Named Moe” by Joe Jackson. This piece is so much fun that if you haven’t seen it, watch it; if you have, watch it again (we did, twice), and expect it live on tour.

They then presented a dance from the performers of “Cirque du Soleil” done to “Homage to the Rabbits” by Eric Serra. It is an incredibly dark piece danced with everyone in rabbit costumes and choreographed by, you guessed it, the dark man himself, Wade Robson, of “Thriller” fame.

Second Elimination

They then leaped to the biggest mistake on the show we have ever seen, eliminating Katee and leaving Twitch. She was awarded a prize of $50,000.00 to compensate her for America’s inept analysis of dance. The judges last night tried to subdue their praise of Katee, we think to keep this from being a blow out, but they instead got America to forget how wonderful she is. They played back her prior dances from the season, and we remembered, she not only made herself the winner, she brought the male dancers to the show. Twitch’s most memorable dances were with Katee, and if not for those, he likely would not have been voted through.  Will’s best performance was with Katee, and we all know how the pairing of Joshua and Katee worked out.

Sour grapes are worth eating after you saw Katee lose. It was sad, and it was wrong. We have to believe that this was an error on the part of the show; perhaps what they were inferring with the new prize for Katee is that there will be a winner on both the men and women’s side from now on, and it will not be clear if the leader in the runner-up gender finished second or third. We are thinking that Katee could have actually finished second here and we were misled by the show because they wanted to play up the final draw between the men. No clue, but if America did vote for Twitch over Katee, we know they were in the “dead zone” with their cell phones.

Surprise 3

After the break, we found Cat Deely sitting in Nigel’s place in the judges panel.  Could this be a  signal something was up?  Cat chatted with Debbie Allen for a little while who quipped that she stepped down (as SYTYCD judge) so Will could compete and that she was proud of Will’s performances. With that note, Cat introduced the next performers from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy bringing in Debbie’s youngest and ‘oldest’ students- 19 kids tap dancing to “Boogie Wonderland” by the Earth, Wind and Fire. Oh, the oldest performer was- was that really Nigel Lythgoe taking the center stage? Yes it was! He was tap dancing his heart out along with the kids. It was a fun number.

Mary called for Mia Michael’s piece next starring Katee and Twitch and danced to “Mercy” by Duffy. This performance was not as sharp as when it was first performed, but it was still superb and should win Mia an Emmy. It was also, ironically, performed right after Katee’s elimination, the piece that brought Twitch to the forefront and gave him his chance to beat Will in the voting. Had this piece not been so wonderfully performed by Katee, we think Will would have lived on and Twitch would have gone home.

After some comic relief, Debbie Allen selected Twitch and Kherington‘s dance to “A New Day Had Come” by Celine Dion. This is a beautiful piece and it does show Twitch can dance, but it also clearly demonstrates his lack of ability in formal dance relative to the other performers in the competition. The lifts are strong, but strength is not dance. It helps, but it is not dance.

Nigel then called for the pair of the season, Joshua and Katee, dancing to “No Air” by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. This was Joshua’s and Katee’s first dance together on the show and it is one of the most memorable. It was the start of what would be the best year of these two dancers’ lives, and resulted in another standing ovation from the crowd and judges.

There was a segment on “where they are now” that was fun. It showed a number of past season dancers and was primarily a promotion for the show, but it was presented professionally.

Surprise 4

They brought performers from past seasons to refresh the audience’s memory of these great dancers. Dominic, Lauren, Travis, Ryan, Neil, Dmitri, Anya, Hok, Jaime and Benji among others came to the stage to remind us this show’s foundation is built on amazing talent. They wowed us in this set and at the end, the cast from this year joined in. This was great and had the audience going wild.

THE FINAL TWO

They then returned and crowned Joshua in the final 2 minutes of the show. Joshua and Twitch both reacted by leaping into the air, and Twitch raised Joshua’s hand in victory. Joshua’s Dad was in tears and Joshua was hugging Cat. He thanked everyone graciously, and showed he is a deserving champion.

Now, we wait for the tour and next year on SYTYCD. It was a great season with so many stunning and entertaining sets that no matter who wins, the audience always does.

Our congratulations to Joshua Allen, SYTYCD America’s Favorite Dancer!

Episode Number: 142    Season Num: 12    First Aired: Sunday December 30, 2007 • The show’s episode that got the raves is a quote from contestant Jennifer. Her partner and boyfriend Nathan asked: How come Kynt and Vyxsin like…? ; Jennifer then quipped: I don’t know. Honestly, they have witch powers or something…

Kynt and Vyxsin were a memorable couple in the show because of their unique personalities representing the “Goth community in Louisville. Host Phil Keoghan later said to the duo: I have to give you the award for the most fashionable couple ever on The Amazing Race! The couple jovially agreed.
