Interview of Kent and Vyxsin at Reality Rocks Expo in LA

I got a chance to meet Kent and Vyxsin at the Reality Rocks Expo in LA. I pulled out my video camera to have them answer questions. Only problem was that my video camera ran out of space at this point. So, I only got the first question and half on this video camera. I got some more on my cell phone. I’ll post that later. Until then, here’s the first part of my interview with Kent and Vyxsin.

Unfortunately, my camera died right as I started to film with Kent and Vyxsin. However, this answer was worth posting. Enjoy this short video. More video of Kent and Vyxsin to come.

Live to Dance New York Contestants

Well, the premiere of Live to Dance won the ratings battle for that night with 10.2 million viewers. Not a bad start to the show. In fact, I think it’s quite good. I read that it didn’t do as well in the targeted demographic that advertisers really want, but I also don’t know of any (maybe there’s some exception somewhere) that has 10+ million viewers and gets cancelled. Anyway, we’ll be tracking the ratings as the season goes on so we can see what America thinks of Live to Dance.

On the second night of auditions for Live to Dance, we saw a wide variety of contestants. Here’s the list of Live to Dance Contestants at the New York auditions and how many Gold Stars they received:

Contestant(s) Hometown # of Gold Stars
Bonnie Buchner Franklinville, New York 1
Shore Thing Cape May, New Jersey 3
Joe Bananas Queens, New York 0
Kristina Vensko Alexandria, Virginia 0
Leighanna Kennett Canastota, New York 2
C-Bunny Millstone, New Jersey 1
Peaches Long Island, New York 1
ICONic Boyz Englishtown, New York 3
Lilphunk Boyz Boston, Massachusetts 3
Roosevelt Anderson Brooklyn, New York 3
Chi-Town Finest Breakers Chicago, Illinois 3
Dax & Sarah Los Angeles, California 3
Twitch Miami, Florida 3
Full Out New York City, New York 0
Venom Brooklyn, New York 0
NERDZ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 0
Jazz Unlimited Mariton, New Jersey 0
D’Angelo & Amanda Miami, Florida 3

I haven’t had time to make the list of Live to Dance music like I would have liked. However, we’re starting to get quite a bit of traffic to the site for Live to Dance, so if you know the music used for any of the contestants above, just let me know in the comments and I can update the list.

Live to Dance Contestants and Music

Tonight was the premiere of Live to Dance with Paula Abdul on CBS. I was a bit skeptical about the show, but I have to admit that I really really enjoyed it. I got dragged away in the middle by a phone call, but I’ll catch up with it online. The parts I saw were just fantastic.

I thought the dancing was great and the mix of dances, dance group size and talent level made it really entertaining. The judges were good, not great. At least they weren’t annoying me too much. Sometimes the pace to get to the judges was a bit slow too. Although, I do like that they just flash the scores all at once. They don’t agonize as each judge gives their score.

Andrew Gunsberg as host felt a little messed up to me. He had a few funny moments, but a part of me was upset that once again some guy with an accent that no one knows is hosting the show again. Ok, if he had the legs and accent of Cat Deeley, I might forgive him, but he doesn’t. Is America really that starving for host talent?

Ok, now for the breakdown of the auditions from Live to Dance 2011 week 1, day 1: the Live to Dance Los Angeles auditons (the last number is how many Gold Stars they got):

Dancer(s) Hometown # of Gold Stars
Jalen Seattle, Washington 3
One Night in Havana Las Vegas, Nevada 0
Dak Eubanks Los Angeles, California 0
The Academy West Covina, California 0
Bev & Hap Los Angeles, California 3
Jill & Jacob Los Angeles, California 3
Du-Shant Stegall Las Vegas, Nevada 3
Tap Sound Underground Los Angeles, California 3
Supatrix Los Angeles, California 3
Dance In Flight Valley Village, California 3
The Vibe Lindon, Utah 3
Inside the Box Pomona, California 3
Pace Dance Westminster, California 0
Hollywood Hot Shots Los Angeles, California 0
Rob Lee Thornhill San Rafael, California 0
Anakh Punjab Di North Hollywood, California 0
Stone Fleshman Woodinville, Washington 0
Lilphunk Girls Boston, Massachusetts 1
Island Dolls Midvale, Utah 0
Arleen Hurtado Long Beach, California 1
Single Ladies Remix Orange County, California 1
Tara Paisha Las Vegas, Nevada 1
Jittin’ Genius Detroit, Michigan 2
Dorothy Dale Kloss Palm Springs, California 2
Beyond Gold Los Angeles, California 2
Kendall Glover Phoenix, Arizona 3

As I’ve done previously on Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, I’m going to try and get together a list of music for Live to Dance. So, if you know any of the music from tonight’s episode of Live to Dance, let me know in the comments. I’ll collect it all and do a post listing the Live to Dance music for everyone to enjoy.

Live to Dance with Paula Abdul

CBS announced today the host and panel of experts for the new reality-competition series, LIVE TO DANCE with Paula Abdul. Executive producer, lead expert and mentor Paula Abdul will be joined by host Andrew Günsberg and fellow experts, choreographer Travis Payne and singer/dancer Kimberly Wyatt.

Obviously, since I’m a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance, I’m interested to see how well the show Live to Dance with Paula Abdul will do on Fox.

I love most dance shows so I’m quite sure that I’ll enjoy this show. Unless it turns out like that terrible international dance show that Nigel put together (Superstars of Dance?).

The funny thing is that this really feels similar to how X Factor has gone at American Idol. The similarities between how Live to Dance is going at SYTYCD is remarkable. For example, they open up the format so that solo or group performances are allowed. This is going to be interesting to watch. Only problem is that they have Paula and not Simon. Simon is the ratings draw. I don’t think Paula is.

Either way, I love that there’s more dance on TV. Let’s just hope it doesn’t saturate America with too much dance so all the shows get cancelled.

Survivor Nicaragua Back on CBS

I was so glad to have Survivor back last night. Although, I must admit that it was a bit of a disappointing show for me. I think that a 1 hour premiere isn’t enough for me. I prefer the 2 hour Survivor premiere. You get more of a chance to know the various players.

It is an interesting dynamic having Jimmy Johnson on the show. I’m not sure I like it that much. Mostly because even on the first show he’s already ready to bow out of the competition. That’s just lame. If you’re going on Survivor, then I want you to be all in and trying to win. None of this, It’s Too Hard crap!

Sadly, I also don’t see and Russell’s on this season. Granted, he’s a hard one to replace. However, I’ll definitely be missing him this season. Although, the show is still fascinating and will definitely be a great watch. I like the move to Wednesday nights too, but I’d rather have it a little later. Oh well, it should be another good season of Survivor.

Survivor – The Dragons Music Video

This is one freakin hilarious video. You have to be a Survivor fan, and you also have to have enjoyed the Survivor Ponderosa videos to really understand this video. However, those of you who have seen it will laugh hard. I love it and the blonde chick (I already forgot her name) was pretty good in this video.

Preview Videos of Survivor 20: Heroes vs Villains

I’m so excited for Survivor 20: Heroes vs Villains. They brought back so many incredible personalities that this should be absolutely incredible to watch. I’m not sure I have any favorites or people that I want to win. I just want to watch the drama unfold. It should be incredible!!

In case you missed the Survivor 20 Cast announcement, watch this great video where Jeff Probst talks about each of the cast members. He reminds you about each person and gives you insight into why they’re on the show and what we might expect from them.

Grey’s Anatomy and Survivor…I Love Thursdays

I can’t tell you how muzh I love Thursdays. Survivor has been off the charts this season. Russell is arrogant, but is great television. I think he’s going to get it handed to him tonight. You had to know that his arrogance was going to catch up with him sooner or later. I am just really happy that he’ll at least be on the jury. Can you imagine?

Grey’s Anatomy should be great as well. Izzie is back and that’s good since I just hated having her storyline just sitting there. We need some resolution to that story. Whatever resolution that may be. I also only ask the writers one thing: Do not touch little grey. She’s my favorite and must stay on the show.
Private practice is on tonight also, but I’m behind on those shows and so I’m not sure I’ll ever get back to it. Is it even worth it? That show has just been a little weird for me lately.
