So You Think You Can Dance drops to 14
America's Got Talent began with singing, dancing and yodeling. Last night was jam packed with talented people. First, the guys and gals of So You Think You Can Dance took the stage offering up everything from an elegant waltz to a gangster hip-hop.
You can read all about it in my full So You Think You Can Dance recap here!
Next it was on to America's Got Talent where clever ideas saved a few people who weren't all that talented. Like the 6-foot 4-inch dominatrix yodeler and the fiddling Polish triplets who couldn't stop speaking all at once. They put several dancing children through, though honestly, how would you make a Vegas lounge act out of that? And, as usual, there were the horrendous acts like the disco bouncer and the giant dancing blowfish. It is a weird and wacky world.
I ended my night with a repeat of this week's She's Got the Look on TVLand. I don't usually watch this show but I was intrigued by the talk of one contestant's meltdown. Man, they weren't kidding. The series is like America's Next Top Model but for women over thirty-five. The women show up for judging and Laurie arrives in shorts, tank, sneakers and with a towel around her neck.
She interrupts the process saying she wants to get this over with and no, she'd not quitting, but the judges should send her home. Now. Then she starts ranting about how all she wants to do is take care of the other women, she doesn't want to compete and then she pulls her top off and stands there, half naked, goading the judges to send her home. Home? How about to a rubber room? It was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen on a show like this. Of course, now, I'm hooked on the series. Okay, TVLand, you got me. Click here to watch Laurie's exit interview where she talks about why she exposed herself on TV.
