  • Awesome idea, bad start...

    This show is a very cool idea! We all know they're trying to copy off of Dancing with the Stars though, and that kind of makes me mad, but it's pretty cool. I don't always agree with the judges though. They're nice when they want to be, but their explanations of the scores they're giving are very vague. I think they should elaborate some more. I also think they should incorporate more of the history of the dances. People aren't going to like this episode, or the first season, but it will get better. Most shows start off weird and stupid-looking, but over time, they get better. We just need to be patient and wait to see what they can come up with for this show =D The performances were great! The best one, in my opinion, is the Group Irish dance. GO IRELAND!!!!! =Dmoreless
  • I couldn't imagine a more awful start to this competition.

    The major problem I had with the first episode of "Superstars of Dance" is that none of the dancers had a superstar aura that I'd expect to see from competitors on a show with this title. I'd say at least half of the dancers seemed like they'd just been selected because they were from the appropriate country and knew a bit about dance. I've watched better competition on "So You Think You Can Dance?" for two seasons now. I counted 3 dancers in this episode that have previously appeared as contestants on the previously mentioned FOX show. None of those 3 won their respective seasons.

    The show also had zero energy, starting with the host Michael Flatley. I kept waiting for my interest to be caught either by some energy from Flatley or a really energetic dance, but it just never came. I can't decide if having the judges dress in their native clothing is comical, stupid, or appropriate. It makes for a very colorful judging panel, but I'd rather see that color coming from the judges through character and emotion.moreless
