Thayne is going home.


I think I had a crush on him. How can you not love his smile?


I’m just still amazed at how much I like So You Think You Can Dance. Who knew I liked dance?

I just assumed it was an American Idol spin off. But I like it so much better. It’s got a better set up than AI. I like how America votes but the judges decide. I love the way the bottom 3 contestants have to “dance for their lives”. And the judges…they aren’t Paula. So, there’s a plus right there.

I saw Phil, the host of The Amazing Race talking about how reality shows are stupid because you are rewarded for doing NO work. (So, obviously, this is why he is the host of the hardest and most “real” reality show ever.) But I think SYTYCD qualififes as “real”. The contestants are learning choreography totally out of their element, they actually DO have talent and they work hard! I love it!

I like every person in the Top Ten. I think I’ll be depressed every week when someone gets voted off. I want them all to win! (Including Thayne!) Doesn’t it seem like everyone is genuinely nice? The guys are so complimentary of their female partners it’s unbelievable!

Could I gush any more?!! I actually looked up the SYTYCD Top Ten Tour to see if they are going to come to Atlanta. Should I be embarrassed?

(ps…what was up with everyone wearing the IV REAL shirts?)


  1. I’m gonna miss Thayne too, especially his smile! I love this show. I danced as a youngster and I just LOVE watching it. I do have a favorite couple though (Twitchington!) HA!

  2. Yeah, what’s up with the shirts? Not good pr if you ask me if we have no idea what it is that the slogan is promoting!

    Anyway, my husband and I called it right on who was going home. I couldn’t see them letting go Will (Mr. Awesome!) or Twitch (he’s just do darn likeable!). At least it looks like Thayne will soon have at least one job working with Mia Michaels!

    btw…every time they introduced Thayne, I wanted to (and did) break out in to song and sing the the theme song to Fame while changing it the ‘Thayne’. So it’d go like this….’Thayne! I wanna live forever!’ Ok, I’m a dork, I know it. 🙂

  3. I think shows like Idol and SYTYCD should be considered reality contests- they actually have talent and have to work hard to make it to the end. Amazing race doesn’t take much talent, but it is work and some skill. I’ll miss Thayne, we even know his bfs family. Guess I’m with Nick now- he’s from Hawaii too!

  4. How about this:

    How much do those judges HATE Jessica?

    I could take her or leave her, but every week the judges truly go out of their way to insult her.

  5. I like the show too. But I can only stomach so much of judge MARY!! GAG!! Ugh…her voice and her “I’ve-had-one-too-many-plastic-surgeries” smile run through my veins like nails!

    The shirt: Does “IV Real” stand for “For Real”?? Other than that, I don’t know!

  6. I love, love this show. We’ve watched every season except the first. They get better and better. You know, now the judges won’t decide since it’s the top 10 couples. Now it’s up to America! I do like how the judges have the final say in who is in the top 10 couples, vs how on American Idol, sometimes crappy people get in the top, and good people go home.

  7. My husband guess “For Real” for the shirts last night, after I asked him (with all the street cred!) what IV Real meant…

    oh, Amanda, I’m so sorry that Thayne is gone… After I saw who was in the bottom 3, I knew both he and Comfort were gone. Now, if Gev ever got into the bottom 3, I think he will be the next to go…

    BTW – the SYTYCD tour starts on Hubby’s birthday in Tacoma, WA. He said that’s what he wants for his birthday – to fly to Tacoma and see the show…

  8. Someone already mentioned it, but just in case you missed it, lol… America starts to vote for who’s going home now. The judges only pick until the top 10. However, America does a much better job with this show, than American Idol. They genuiley pick the person with talent, as opposed to popularity. I’ve been watching since season 2. Love the show!

    Oh & I was sad to see Thayne go, as well, but was glad to finally see Comfort go.

    Oh (again) I’m tired of them putting Jessica down… I think she does a great job. But I guess that’s why I’m not a judge? lol

  9. I haven’t been able to watch SYTYCD as much this season as before due to the wee one’s bedtime. But I also LOVED Thayne! His smile reminds me of Benji Schwimmer (sp?) who won 2 seasons ago. Loved Benji!

    These kids have talent!

    I didn’t not like Thayne, but he was my least favorite of the guys who were left so I was happy it was him and not Twitch or Will (which it wouldn’t be Will – those judges adore him). I think either Will, Twitch or Joshua are gonna take it in the end. I love Joshua – he looks so street until he smiles and it just melts your heart. And he walks that fine line of being so insanely strong but also graceful. So that’s just my two centers. But I’m sorry for your loss 😉

  11. I will go with you on tour! Love it…Twitch and Kherington! Love them…IV Real!

  12. My daughter and I really enjoy this show and watch it religiously on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s.

    If you have a chance, you should visit me on Tuesday nights and join my bloggy carnival about SYTYCD. I haven’t had much response, but I’d love it if you wanted to share some linky love!

    i love that show…last year was the best though. i am not really attached to any of the dancers this time around.

  14. I too am an addict. How could you not be. These are genuinely talented people. At this point I am only disappointed by the narrowing process. They should all win. And we should get to see them all dance everyweek. Forever. It’s honestly the only TV I watch, right now that is.

    I am fortunate enough to be Canadian and not allowed to vote. This means I don’t feel obligated to make some sort of decision in the process.

    Since I’m behind on blog reading…I just wanted to comment also, that I LOVE your backwards day post!
