Results and Previews

Posted: Friday, August 03, 2007 by Travis Cody in

I've got Sabra and Pasha for the encore today. This first clip is the Broadway, choreographed by Tyce Diorio.

And here's the second dance, Quick Step choreographed by Tony Meredith.

That kind of dancing makes me smile!

Interesting opening number from Shane Sparks, evidently inspired by The Matrix.

Everybody dances a solo tonight, with no impact on results.

The gals:
*Sara shows that despite shining in other styles, she is a B-girl at heart.
*Lacey proves how much of a ham and a flirt she is, strutting across the stage.
*Sabra claims the stage as her own and has the audience in her hand.
*Lauren takes a little step backward for me tonight, but no worries cause it doesn't count in the voting.

The guys:
*Neil shows off his exceptional spinning and aerial skills.
*Danny goes Neil several times better - this is a professional dancer.
*Dominic shows off some incredible tricks with a plastic chair.
*Pasha goes to his roots with a wonderful solo Paso Doble.

If I were making a choice based on those solos, my winner is Sabra. Pam is beginning to waffle a little between Sabra and Lacey - last night she voted mostly for Pasha and then some for Sabra. I went a different way, voting for Lacey because I thought she might be in trouble. I also threw a few votes toward Danny.

Results for the gals - Lacey is safe, Sara is in danger, Sabra is safe, Lauren is in danger. I think America is getting this one right. Lacey is charming and sexy, while Sabra has shown incredible talent and joy in her dance. Sara and Lauren got caught in some tough styles that didn't show them off as well. Lacey and Sabra qualify as our favorites.

Results for the guys - Danny is safe, Neil is in danger, Pasha is safe, Dominic is in danger. I think America is getting this one right as well. Danny is finally getting the notice he should, and Pasha benefits from dance styles that show off his charm. So in terms of "favorites", Danny and Pasha are it for the guys.

Sara is out - the final three gals are Sabra, Lacey, and Lauren. I think this is my favorite clip for Sara, dancing West Coast Swing with Pasha.

Dominic is out - the final three guys are Danny, Pasha, and Neil. Check out the tricks Dominic has...

Next week I think we're going to have to make a choice. It's beginning to look a lot like Sabra or Lacey for both of us.

A Meme Preview...

A few days ago, Skittles tagged me for a meme that asks about my five best nights. This is taking some thought, so I'll be getting to it shortly. If you were to guess that one of my best nights would be the first date with Pam, well you might just be onto something.

A Movie preview...

And, we're hot for another movie at my place! It opens today!

  1. Julie says:

  1. TopChamp says:

    Hey love. I now have a very slow dial-up connection which prevents me from seeing your videos. I can't believe we used to live with the SLOWNESS... still it's better than no internet.

    disappointed tho as i love reading your dancing reviews whilst listening to the music!

  1. Bond says:

    You know the last few years I have not made it to the movies... this one I want to see..
    nice wrap up on the dancing Travis... you are great at it my friend...
    looking forward to your 5 nights..and OF COURSE I knew at least one had Pam in it!
    You are an incredibly lucky man to have found and kept your love.

  1. Travis says:

    108: These kids are so talented.

    Julie: Me too!

    TC: Awww I'm sorry to hear about the slow connection. Hopefully you'll get your speed back soon.

    Vinny -

    Normally I don't like to see such vast deviations from the books. But in this case, I don't mind it. I think it works because they've updated the story to deal with modern technology advances. And they haven't changed the character's basic motivations.

    I think I've figured out the five nights - thanks to a little help.

    And I tell myself every day how luck I am.

  1. I thought it was FOUR nights on that meme. Vinny tagged me, and I'm still thinking on it.

    I can't wait to see The Bourne Ultimatum. Hubby arrives in OH this evening, so I think we'll go see it this week some time.

    Have a great weekend, Trav!
