Theme for today... DANCE!!!

Can you smell it in the air?

It's the changing of the Reality Shows, we go from American Idol--eh--so, so... and we get to get by FAR my favorite REALITY SHOW, who premiere'd last night!

(I wish they would ask me first when they photoshop'd my body on that poster... sigh.)

That's right... So You Think You Can Dance. Two hours of bliss... aaahhhh.

Of course we watched it on the DVR so I could fast forward. Sometimes those trying out make me feel all embarrassed for them, SO embarrassed I Fast Forward to save them the humiliation!!!

I'm nice like that.

Anyway... more on that another time. If you are an Alien from another planet and have no idea what I'm talking about... here's a few of my favorites to break ya in CLICK HERE or HERE. Or HERE!!!

I was able to take pictures of a Dance Concert a couple of weekends ago. Here are my two favorite shots.

Now go to Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta and see who else is playing!

The coolest part of that Dance Concert... my niece performed her solo that she is taking to NYC for the New York City Dance Alliance Nationals--she placed for a spot in the Finals Gala... I'm biased... but I think she is amazing!!! After you watch her, I'll let you know how old she is.

(I'm awesome in this video at cat calling... I have that patented BTW... so you can't do it like me or I'll sue you.)

The girls 10!!! 10 years old. GAH... I love her! She's definitely my FAVORITE oldest niece!



P.S. I'm over at the Real World Venus vs. Mars today. I tell about the pranks my husband pulls on me... come over and say HI!!!

P.S.S. Everytime you comment... I lose weight... just saying.

Oh that girl sure can dance! Wow.

Kristina P. said...

My SYTYCD virginity was taken last night. I am such a reality tv whore, and have NEVER seen this show! I am going to watch it this year. It better be good!

Barbaloot said...

Your neice is awesome! I love SYTYCD-so excited for it! I basically fell in love with Gev last year:)

But I never watch the initial try-outs. They're TOO awkward and mean and embarrassing...and I don't have the blessing of DVR like you:) Once it's Vegas time, I'm there.

Melanie J said...

We are DVR soul sisters. I can't watch the awkward ones either. Like same sex ballroom. Really? Oh, boy.

T said...

how come every time I comment I find that weight you've lost? (maybe it has something to do with the inactivity of blogging in general?)

I'm with you - I have a hard time watching people mortify themselves on television... I think that's why shows like Blues Clues and Barney don't get watched around here!

Cameron said...

Remember this dude, I think from last year:

He didn't get too far, but his dance was insane.

Melinda said...

Oh my, I am so digging her! She's amazing!! 10?!?!?! I can't believe it, thats so cool! (Oh, and by the way, that totally could've been ME cat-calling, I sound just like you. We must've been seperated at birth?) :D

Katie L said...

I have to admit, the only reason I watch it is so I can see the crazy the girl dressed up as a cat doing that werido dance thing to star wars music? Are there really people like that? It blows my mind! Or, gag me now, the same sex ballroom dancers? I mean, the guy that said he wasnt gay was a liar..hahahaha. Other than that, I watch the actual comp and get depressed that Ill never be that good. Do you know if Jenna auditioned?

The Wixom Zoo said...

Holy crap! No way she's only 10! I'm in my 30's and have to look down at the ground when I walk so that I don't fall on my face! How does she d that and not end up with bruises all over, I wonder? Amazing!

Heidi Ashworth said...

Here's to you weight loss! (clever girl!) I love dancing, just love it--I used to take ballet. Your neice truly is amazing! I am watching So You Think You Can Dance from the beginning for the first time this year. It's on DVR, natch, and have only watched through to the gross green faced guys but I can't wait to see the rest!

Heidi Ashworth said...

Oh, and your photos are fab! (that should be worth at least two pounds!)

shannon said...

Man!-she's a sure have the dancing gene in your family!!

I love these live videos!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Kristina--I'd never steer you wrong.. welcome to the SYTYCD slut club... you'll never look back! It'll be awesome!

Barbaloot--I know, it's like a train wreck... I can't not NOT watch it... I'd miss things like Same-Sex BallROOM... hahahahaha!

Melanie J--I was already laughing... cause I felt awkard watching it... but then... when they FELL... OH MY GOSH... sorry, that was funny!

T--LOL@ Blues Clues and Barney... good play, that was funny!

Cameron--YOU WATCH SYTYCD!!! You ARE officially in my BBFF club! Welcome! Yea, I linked up to him last year because I loved what he could do!

Melinda--we probably were separated at birth... I LOVE your sarcasm and wit... you must have gotten that side of the genes though... :)

Katie L--THe CAT lady... HA! Poor thing, she was serious! She was about to cry!!! THe swords were the best though... perfect touch! lol! No I think I remember saying Jenna didn't try out! That would be cool if she did!

Wixom--She's been doing it practically since birth and she is at an AMAZING studio... a few of their students have been on SYTYCD!

Heidi--Thanks for helping the cause! :) We will have to swap notes on it then! It's more fun that way! Oh and have fun watching the Same Sex Ballroom couple! lol!

Shannon--Thanks... She's awesome, humble, pretty, and talented! Love her. Yea, all the girls in my family got hit with the dance bug. It was expected of us cause my MOM taught dance, had a studio and stuff! :)

I'm so excited you guys... and thanks for commenting and helping me with my weight loss... you are all TROOPERS!!!

Shannon said...

Last night was great! I'm with you though... watching it on the DVR is the best. I get 2nd hand-embarrassed for some of those "dancers", too! I can't watch them...

Chelsie & Mark's hip hop is one of my all-time faves, too!

Shannon said...

Oh, and your photos are phenomenal... as always.

And I'm having trouble watching the video... so I'll try again later!

Homer and Queen said...

I've never seen I said before, I'm sure someone is being killed on another channel! Anything CSI-ish, forensic files, and I love 1st 48! Reality dead people, I love it!!! (No horror slash 'em movies though). I thinks this comment is worth at least 3 lbs!!!

Kritta22 said...

I didn't know SYTYCD started already!!!

Kritta22 said...

I think I've been hiding under a rock lately!!

Kritta22 said...

Your picture taken is seriously awesome!!!

You are amazing!

Kritta22 said...

Your niece is awesome!! Must be in your blood!

Kritta22 said...

I'm watching a BBC show...Don't tell the Bride! It's is toooo funny!
The bride can't know anything, even picking out her dress!! Craziness but the wedding is paid for!

Kritta22 said...

here's to 6 lbs! i heart you!

tiffany said...

That girl has GOT IT GOING ON!!!!!!!! And how did I know that was your cat call before reading your claim to it? LOL

Shawn said...

SYTYCD has had me hooked for every season! Love it!

I was a bit p' oded, though, when I realized that my TIVO hadn't been taping it! AACCCKKK! So, I only caught Denver....

Amanda said...

Nice job on the pictures.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Ok loved the first night. All of it. But I did find myself missing all my old friends, like Twitch so thanks for hooking me up with a link fix. What about Lacey and Neil's contemporary dance about Mia meeting her father in heaven? That one is one of my all time favs, as well as Chelsie and Mark.

Your niece is amazing. How fun for you to watch her.

Kristina and Heidi, welcome to the obsession you will learn to love.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

YOU are such a fantastic PHOTOGRAPHER!

And your niece is fantastic. I can't believe she's only 10. She flows!!!!


Loralee and the gang... said...

I LET OUT A BIG WHOOP OF JOY when I saw the commercial previews (I stopped the FF when I saw the famous logo dash by on the screen) for this show! It is my fav-o-rite, and I was scared it wasn't coming back, because didn't it premier in January last year? Anyway, love love love it, and I wish I could dance with 1/10 of the skill that those (talented) dancers do! (I'd be the one that the judges are rolling their eyes at and saying "don't you know that's not good dancing?". Yikes!
