They changed it last year, in season 9.  They were only given one night every week for the show.  Same goes for this year. Just one night to showcase all these dance talents! But they changed the order of presentation.  They moved the elimination to the beginning of the show. And that changed everything. It changed the mood. It changed the dynamic. It changed the feel of the entire episode.

On the one hand, the professionalism of the dancers was brought to light. On the other hand, it was quite a challenge for everyone to contain their emotions after learning the news and still managed to give it their best, as they should.

The camera work on this particular episode was also a bit messy.  There were several shots that were out of focus. Some of the camera men also seemed to have forgotten their blocking (if that’s what you call it).

So far, after 2 nights of performance, nothing has really evoked as much a reaction as the statue dance of Marko and Melanie or any of the dances of Katie and Joshua yet.  I favor a few dancers but no one has danced a really memorable routine yet.

I love Mackenzie! Her feet are really amazing. She points her toes like there’s no tomorrow.  Aaron and Jasmine H is the couple to beat so far.  Fikshun and Amy are cute. Jasmine M and Alan are also contenders.

I am excited for the coming weeks. I do hope they revert to the old format and hold the eliminations towards the end of the show.  I know that the better routines are still to come and I am looking forward to them.
