So You Think You Can Dance?
The American Idol signature was evident, so I actually felt at home even if it was dancing. I did feel uncomfortable watching contestants who were supposedly funny since I can’t dance myself — so who am I to judge? At any rate, Nigel Lythgoe (producer of Idol) did a decent job of being the Simon Cowell of the show, but it is clear that this is just the support show (and rickey.org filler) for the bigger franchise.
Who did I like? Well, all three of them were eliminated early! Hahahahaha. My super-fanhood was short-lived. We’ll try again next week.
Nigel Holt, who had a fantastic head spin (quicktime video) and the ego the size of a bus:
SUPER-CUTIE Chris Corres from ROMEOVILLE, IL (drool, OMG):
And the highlight of the show, Anthony Bryant, who unfortunately had no clue what his self-image was. Yes, honey, masculine you are NOT. But I still love you! I and the rest of your brothers and sympathetic sisters would have rooted for you so hard if you had made it.
Plus points for the I-am-not-afraid-to-show-my-bulge-in-front-of-millions outfit, but really, the rhythmic gymnastics routine (quicktime video) was inspired (even if the judges hated it). Bravo! One of the most entertaining fifteen minutes ever.
We’ll see what happens next week, but off the bat, I think they will pimp the girl who looked like Britney Spears, Cheryl Texiera, and the other blond, all-American girl, Melissa Vella.
Also, the host, Lauren Sanchez, had too much plastic surgery.
P.S. I just read what I wrote again, and I just realized, doh, that Anthony Bryant was eliminated because he "looked" gay. Now I’m very angry. We should write this show some e-mail. OMG, that’s flat out discrimination! The bit was funny because when Anthony was trying to "look" masculine, it obviously wasn’t, so ha-ha — however, he was getting the boot for simply that criteria, and according to Nigel, he was afraid that Anthony would turn off the male voters. What a load of bullshit. So… Nigel is the manipulative bastard behind these shows. I am so ANGRY! I’m starting the negative campaign right now. This is totally unacceptable. Vote for the worst here we come.
