So addicted to this show...but tonight's vote?????
I want to start off by saying that I wasn't really interested in this show at first, but I started to watch it in 2006 and it is one of the most entertaining show I've see so far. Now, my first comment is on the show of August 4th 2006. I just love Donyelle to pieces, she is a great dancer, she has the most beautiful eyes and has a great smile.
I have to admit I have a little crush on Donyelle, but on the other hand, I don't think that she is the one that should have stayed in the competition at this stage. She's great, she really is, but Natalie is a much stronger competitor. She has a knee injury and still gives a strong performance. She has wonderful stage presence, such amplitude in her movements and a lot of finesse when performing in general, whether it's a solo routine or not. She is so wonderful and more than a pleasure to watch.
The way she generally interacts with the audience and her partners is another strong point. My feeling is that the fact that she had Ivan as a partner at this crucial point in the competition (before the previous vote) is what killed it for her. Ivan is really great but by his lack of professional training he has way less versatility and is far less refined than the others. He enjoys dancing and it shows, he's lots of fun to watch, but in my opinion, unlike many dancers he wasn't really what we call born for that.
Some people have it in their blood but way more important it's in their soul and that cannot be taught, but is felt in everything they do. But as I said earlier he is great to watch and he always seems to have the best time when performing, and that's important too. He will need to get to the basics and fundamentals of dance and get the training he needs if he chooses to make a career out of it.
Natalie is a dancer in every way, heart and soul and even though I love them all, I think it is very unfortunate that she was voted out. Donyelle is very talented and has a lot going for her, but she will need to give it all she's got and beyond to beat Heidi.
Heidi (she is so unbelievable) and Benji...WOW!!! I love them to death, but in terms of giving it all 100% and climbing, even though I like Benji a lot and he puts on one hell of a show, Travis is a stronger competitor in general. Overall they are all very talented, and they have a great career in their future that's a given. Keep up the good work people.
