Thankful for...

...beauty.




For all who didn't get to see this last night -- I adore SYTYCD, but I don't usually expect this kind of dance so early on in the season. I got goose bumps; I cried. Of course, I've watched this show since Season Two (where Travis, the choreographer for this amazing dance, competed -- and I loved him as a dancer, as well -- for those who aren't in the know, Travis and his partner danced an Emmy-nominated dance in Season Two, choreographed by Mia Michaels -- and it was also amazing, but it was near the end of the season). I love that television has opportunities for this kind of celebration of beauty.

I'm so glad you posted that. My kids come down at 9:00 to have a snack and get ready for bed and then I have to switch it off, so I missed the second hour. Wow. WOW!!! Did the judges go crazy over that??

Oh, yeah. They were all in tears -- the crowd was in tears, Cat was in tears...it was so gorgeous. I was crying too...

I wish they wouldn't cut the judges comments off when they post the thing on-line! I love hearing what the judges have to say!!!

Yeah, Nigel said he thought it would be Emmy-nominated -- and I wouldn't be surprised, either!

I cried, too. It was breath-taking. I've loved Melanie from the start, and I think she's perfectly paired with Marko!

In a random aside, I worry about Iveta. There's no doubt she's talented, but she comes off rather cold and severe. Also, I was completely underwhelmed by the second hip hop routine.

Yes, Iveta is definitely not my favorite, and I think it's her demeanor which does her in -- however, I really like Nick, so I voted for them as a couple to keep him safe ;)

I think the strong dancers are already making their mark -- obviously Melanie and Marko (who I hoped would be paired), Wadi, Sasha...there really are some amazing dancers this season, and I'm psyched :D

Thanks for posting ... I tuned out from 9-9:30 and just caught the judges comments for that piece. They raved about it.

This season's dancers seem like a very strong group. I don't know who will be chopped. Hope it is not the quick stepping tap dancer ;o)

(Shame on me for not watching the hometown Bruins crush the Canucks).

Well, I didn't watch hockey, either, but you can bet if the Avalanche were in it, I would've missed SYTYCD ;)

I also like Nick and hope he sticks around for a long time -- he was very impressive :)

Over here they are not showing it yet. But thank you for sharing it. It's beautiful, emotional and passionate.

This is my favorite show, and I'm delighted to see this kind of beauty on a regular basis!

That was amazing! I held my breath at parts, because it was so moving.

Wasn't it gorgeous? It amazes me what the human body can do -- and create!
