Must. Blog. About. Dance. Show.
It’s a compulsion. Someday Sam Raimi will make a horror movie about it.
So! Canadian Dance Show is over. I am happy with the winner, and liked the finale — lots of great numbers recreated.
But who really cares about the dancing? What I really care about is when LeeAnn introduced the top 10 number that had been choreographed by Mia Michaels. She mentioned that Mia could not be there, then said (in super-fake baby voice as only LeeAnn can), “Sorry you can’t be here, Mia, hope you’re ooookaaaaay…”
What did THAT mean? At first I feared that Mia dropped out of SYTYCD US because of some sort of health problem, and LeeAnn had some sort of insider info on that. Mia, near death with swine flu! You heard it here first.
But in retrospect, I think it probably meant that Mia was supposed to be there, and just didn’t show up, and didn’t call or anything. Based on what she said last week on SYTYCD America — that not much had been going right in her life lately — sounds like she just had a big flake out and threw her cell phone off the Brooklyn Bridge and then ran off to Hawaii.
Mia, I miss you already!
And speaking of Dance Show America, I love love love the show they put on last week, where they showcased the top 20 dancers in various sized teams doing their own styles. Such an awesome way to introduce us to all the dancers and give the whole top 20 more of a chance to relax into the show before competing. It’s brilliant, it was a great hour of dancing, and I definitely hope they keep the format and introduce to the Canadian version as well.
I still haven’t watched last night’s top 20 show yet, though, because I’m trapped in the house with three sick children — from the fevers and the coughing and the vomit, we are guessing it’s the FLU THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED. Oh Dance Show, if only the obsession you inspire could somehow be translated into a cure for the flu! We’d be better in five minutes.
