  • This is one of the LAST good dance competitions and we are sabotaging it

    As the title says, So You Think You Can Dance is a rare show now a days. And I truely believe it has potential. Yes the costumes suck, yes Jason does not fit, yes, Paula will never be Mary Murphy and removing the Hot Tamale Train was a huge mistake. But the show still has the best talent out there, it still inspires a lot of aspiring dancers. Street vs Stage is a big change but I believe the fault was in the lack of explanation, even the dancers were confused about the format. But it is proving itself to be very intersting and refreshing. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that there are too much three person routines and it kind of makes it hard to focus on the dancers, they should cut it back to two after week 3. But besides that the choreographies are as beautiful and exciting as ever. Stop sabotaging and start looking on the positive side. Save the show, save the talent.moreless

    I have been a huge fan of this show and have raved about it to friends and colleagues. I am not opposed to the new format--although I don't understand why it needs to be a competition between "stage" and "street". Why not just require "stage" dancers to attempt more street routines? But, beyond that, the COSTUMES ARE TERRIBLE and are set against busy backdrops that don't allow you to see the dancers' bodies. The hair and makeup are also bad in this regard. Every week I feel sorry for some of the dancers who have to wear costumes that either look cheap (how many black straps do we need to see each show?) or interfere with their lines. The camera work and editing are frenetic, cut the dancers off, cut into judges' reaction shots instead of letting us see the choreography. We never get a chance to see the fullness of any performance (or portion of it) because the director keeps making decisions for us, cutting too quickly from camera to camera. The new judges are also not adding to the show at all. When I watched the anniversary show, it was easy to see how much the guest judges added to the format. Each week there was a new perspective, anchored by people who really seemed able to talk about dance knowledgeably. Finally, there have been moments of meanness from the judges, especially during the auditions, that were unnecessary and that never happened in the past (or at least were not shown). In short, the show is so burdened by these problems that I don't think the new format has had an adequate chance. I don't know what's going on, but I try to watch every week because I think there is still a phenomenally talented group of dancers and choreographers. Unfortunately, all the rest of it is making it impossible to enjoy their wonderful work or to really get a look at what this format might have to offer.moreless

    Love affair ended, dance thrill gone. Previous passion for SYTYCD abruptly ceased with this season's lack- lustre contribution to the arts. Gone are the props (think hotel luggage cart), absent are flowing ballgown and foxtrot. Replacement with mediocre routines and choreography turns my heart cold in despair. I yearn for absent beauty, talent, and skill of previous seasons! I can't watch this catastrophe, please return to your glory years!

    I really went into the new format with an open mind, but have been extremely disappointed. The dancers are just not on the same level as before, Jason is honestly a horrible judge and doesnt know what he is talking about, and even the choreographers are second rate and the dances are boring and slow. I could not believe after watching Asaf dance the judges said "we like you cause you try hard". This isnt about who can try the hardest, this is about americas best dancer!! If people danced like this on the previous seasons, they wouldve never made it to the top 20. SYTYCD better change for next season because me (as a really big fan of the show) is ready to give up on it after this season.moreless

    So much negativity? I've scene comment after comment about hating this new format. Is it really that bad? can people really not adapt to any change? There are many great things about this format. 1, since its randomized every week, it doesn't get stale. With normal couple, the problem is that some people make it further then they should, because they are carried by their partner. This way, you focus on the dancers one at a time. Sure, we dont get magical couples, but we still get magical moments.



    Secondly, it leaves access to more creative routines. There are only so many storys you can do with just 2 people. with the groups thrown in all the time, it leaves great ideas for choreo. and about that, people are hating the choreography this year? its been pretty good so far, and its only been 3 weeks. You have to try new choreographers, you cant always use the same ones week after week.



    Thirdly, People are talking shit about the street side, saying they are inferior and it shouldn't be on the show in the first place? What? im sorry, i though this show was to test people's versatility, not weather you can do amazing contemporary routines. and thats what this show was starting to do. last season there were like 2 to 3 contemporary dances a week. Wheres did all the ball room go? where did all the hip hop go? This format allows to have a more versatile show. i dont care if you know watch it for the contemporary dances, dont be selfish. this show is for EVERYONE.



    Now of course there are some fault of this season, but not nearly as much as so many of you want to claim. Like the judges. i agree, paula and jason are kinda boring, especially jason. But weather we like it or not, people need to move on, im sure mary will be fine. Sure i wish she would come back, i love her, but things dont last forever. I just think people are being picky, and just hate change. cause this show is so interesting right now. Grow up people, embrace the change.moreless
