Really hating SYTYCD right now

  • 15th Jul, 2008 at 12:19 AM


Jessica is officially out of the competition. They brought Comfort back to replace her. Forget the lack of epic awesomeness; this season is made of EPIC FAIL. I haven't been this pissed off over a reality TV show ever since Jessi and Jesus were cut last season. Seriously, WTF. It breaks my heart that Jessica got injured, and in a way I'm glad that she won't have to deal with the judges' constant bashing anymore, but WHY COMFORT? Her long overdue elimination last week had me crying tears of joy, and now she's back to torture me some more with her god awful dancing. It's like... waving a Big Mac in front of a starving man's face but not letting him have a single bite. IT'S JUST CRUEL. There's nothing we can do about an injury; I can accept that, even if I hate it. But if you need to replace her, bring back Thayne or something. Fuck the boys/girls rule; let Thayne dance with Mark. That would be a great pairing XD

*sigh*

While I'm on the topic of SYTYCD, here are spoilers for Wednesday.

UPDATE #1:
Lil C is the third judge.

Courtney and Joshua:
1. Hip hop - Dave Scott
2. Rumba - Jean Marc

Mark and Kherington:
1. Two Step (a country/western dance...ahhhhhh!)
2. Jazz

Twitch and Comfort:
1. Waltz
2. Hip hop- Dave Scott- "Forever" by Chris Brown

Will and Katee:
1. Broadway - Tyce DiOrio
2. Pas de Deux - Desmond Richardson (apparently, it's a type of ballet)

Chelsie and Gev:
1. Contemporary - Sonya Tayeh
2. Jive - Jean Marc

UPDATE #2:
Each of the top 10 perform a solo, in their own style


My comments:

1. Wow, they're really going all out with the choreographers this week. Dave Scott, Sonya Tayeh, AND Desmond Richardson -- quite an impressive line-up.

2. Lil' C as a judge? DO NOT WANT. I can take ghetto in the performances, but keep the ghetto off the judging panel (*cough*C&O*cough).

3. Dear LORD, the judges are going to salivate all over themselves at Will and Katee. They're arguably the two most pimped (and undeservedly so most of the time) contestants on this show EVER. AND they got the Desmond Richardson routine. I'm already feeling nauseous just imagining the tongue bath the judges are going to give them.

4. Mark and Kherington? Ew, no, gtfo Kherington :(

5. Poor Twitch. Everyone keeps saying he and Comfort should kill the hip hop, but I doubt it. Comfort just CAN'T FUCKING DANCE WITH ANYONE BUT HERSELF AND SOMETIMES SHE EVEN SUCKS WHEN DOING THAT BECAUSE SHE'S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO BE ON THIS SHOW. Her krump was mediocre, and THAYNE was better than her in their hip hop last week. I have a feeling people will vote for this week's hip hop routine just because of a) Twitch, 2) Dave Scott, and 3) the music.

6. Since I'm back on the subject of hating Comfort... is it just me, or does she stick out like a sore thumb in this top 10? Twitch, Joshua, Gev, Will, Mark, Chelsie, Kherington, Courtney, Katee... they're all FANTASTIC dancers who've constantly gotten praise from the judges ever week. And then there's Comfort, who hasn't had a single good performance thus far :\

fjdlkfjklejfleaea''fea I want Jessica back :( I was so happy that she made it to the top 10, and now this shit happens. FUCK. I was so looking forward to seeing her dance with someone other than perfect Will. SYTYCD is so cruel.

In other news, I've dropped out of hp_cross_fest :( I feel really bad (I swore I'd never drop out of any fests, because I know how stressful it is for the mods), but I simply don't have the time to adequately write a pairing I'm not 100% comfortable with. When I first signed up, I thought I'd have a fair amount of time to ease myself into this cross-gen stuff and mull over idea. Unfortunately, DP, work, and volunteering are more time-consuming than I anticipated, and the first month back at school is always crazy. Throw my other WiPs in there, and I'm left with zero time to devote to a fic I haven't the slightest idea how to approach (though I did have a few vague ideas). I was going to wait and see if my schedule cleared up a bit towards the end of the summer, but I figured it was only fair to the mods to let them know right away.

It's a shame the dates for this fic are so bad for me, because I was looking forward to trying something new. If everything had been shifted a month or two ahead, I probably would've been able to participate :( Oh well. In any case, I still can't wait for the fest to start posting in October ^_^

Aww, I'm sorry you had to drop the fest, but you definitely made the right decision in telling the mods earlier on. I received my prompt today and I'm a bit iffy about it. I still need to focus on my hp_summersmut pinch-hit and then hd_inspired.

Aww, sorry to hear about your prompt :( Yeah, that's always tough, because you don't want to be wanky and ask for another one, but at the same time you don't want to write a mediocre fic for your recipient. That's why gift fests are tough, I guess. I'm sure you'll find a way to make your prompt work, though :D Good luck with your other two! *stabs her own hd_inspired fic*

I have no idea about that show thing, but I understand the stress of fests. I still haven't started my hd_inspired one and I feel like it's too late to back out. I'm pretty good at pulling stuff together at the last minute, like what I did for slash_fest, but.... jsd;fja;sldf

So, don't feel too bad, you're not the only one out there. And I certainly don't have the excuse of work. At least not yet.

Hopefully it shouldn't be too difficult to pull out of hd_inspired if you find you really can't make something work. It's not in gift format, so no one will need to pinch hit or anything like that. But I do hope you figure a way to start (and finish, lol) your fic! Mine's being quite stubborn as well, so I totally feel your pain ♥

Yeah, I think my big problem with inspired, isn't that the prompt isn't good, but that I started working on a different prompt before being told that they'd made a mistake. Mer. -_- It sort of killed my buzz.

I hope your inspired fic comes along well too. Good luck! Break a quill...? haha

That sucks :( Yeah, I feel the same way -- I was so excited about my idea for one prompt that I got into the mindset that I'd be writing it, so when I didn't end up with that prompt, it was kind of jolting. I still don't feel like the prompt I've got is rightfully mine, lol.

Thanks! *hugs*

Meh, I know she was going to leave, but I would've like to see her perform this week. I mainly wanted to see how she'd do with a different guy, because I'm sick of the judges claiming Will outshines her (WHICH IS TOTALLY NOT THE CASE, at least for me... I could care less what Will does). I wanted to see her do a solo, too. Their motives for bringing Comfort back aren't important; the fact still stands that Comfort sucks and if they were going to bring someone back, it should've been Thayne :(

You know, I was banking on Jessica going home this week anyway, but this still kind of makes me mad. It's been painfully obvious for weeks that Comfort just isn't good enough to hold her own in styles other than hip-hop - and even in hip-hop, she seemed like she couldn't - or wouldn't - connect with her partner.

It just seems like they should have brought someone else back. I mean, Comfort? What if she somehow by some freak accident stays longer than one of the other girls? (*gag*) Come on, judges, you eliminate them, why can't you decide who to bring back?

Lame.

In other news, I'm proud of totally skipping all of your spoilers (because this is the week they switch partners, y/y? I don't know if you know who's with who, obviously, since I didn't read). I'm worried now, though, because I feel like most - if not all - of the guys are on equal ground, so honestly? Partnering with Comfort could very well be the kiss of death. And whoever gets Chelsie or Katee is pretty much guaranteed to stay. It's all up in the air.

Re: Thayne with Mark... I honestly said that last week. I mean I know you love Jessica, but I was ready for them both to go - and it's not even her dancing. It's a kind of personal thing, like you had with Katee earlier. I just found her unbelievably obnoxious, so I was ready. So I was like hey, what the heck, just let Thayne stay! The poor guy has never had a partner to do him justice. Plus he could totally take the girl's part, xD.

Totally agree with everything you said about Comfort. Jessica, not so much, but when do I ever agree with what people say about Jessica? :P

And please, PLEASE don't even speak of Comfort staying longer than any of the girls. *bangs on every wood surface she can find* SERIOUSLY, that would be the biggest tragedy SYTYCD's ever experienced. But now that you mention it, I don't understand why they brought Comfort back. I mean, we KNOW she's going to leave next week -- there's no way in hell she'll do better than any of the other girls. So what's the point?

LOL well, the person who got Katee is pretty much guaranteed to stay anyway :x I really hate the couples this week. Poor Mark ;__;

YES. THAYNE AND MARK. THAT WOULD BE SO HOT OMGGG. And Thayne would definitely be the girl in that pairing XD XD
