EEEEE! The underdogs make it to the top. I am very very happy. They do have to spice it up though choreography-wise for next week. Their stunts / acrobatics / crazy funny shapes are always amazing, but they need to be a little more creative with the overall choreo / theme. I have no doubt they will be up to the task though 😀
I can’t believe JabbaWockeeZ is in the dance-off this week. First time for them. My prediction is that they will be dancing next week with SQ.
Okay, now that I just saw their performance, I am positive they will be in the finals next week. Query though: how DOES someone do those headspins that the guy did at the end? I am always amazed by those. I just don’t get how people do them! You couldn’t do that many pirouettes in a row on your toe, so how does one spin on the crown of one’s head like that? I love that he also pulled his elbows to his knees repeatedly to make a different kind of shape. That was new with the headspins (at least to me). Wow.
KabaModern had a cute routine, and I liked the ripping off of the girls’ sweats and the ‘groupies infatuated with the rock star’ thing (and I love JC claiming he remembers what that felt like), but I still think JabbaWockeeZ is just on a different level.
I knew it!
KabaModern seems completely okay with it though. “We just want to inspire. Others have inspired us and we just want to do the same.” Aw…
I wondered what they were going to do for the rest of the show. More dancing from the two finalists of course. Well, overall, I preferred SQ’s Jack-in-the-Box to JabbaWockeeZ’s The Red Pill. I love the big guy carrying what — three, four others, on his shoulders all at once. And the clown’s falling-down pants. The whole thing was a lot of fun from the choreo to the theme to the tricks and flamboyant costumes. Very over the top. The like to wow you; they have a great sense of humor. Of course I still love the spinner guy in JabbaWockeeZ, and I love their subtlety. I love the simulated musical instrument-playing, and the isolations. How starkly different these two groups are, right.
One thing they have in common though is how well they work together. Shane Sparks said JabbaWockeeZ was like a family, but so is Status Quo. You have to work well together both to do perfectly in sync isolations and multi-person lifts. So, I guess if there’s a “lesson” here, it’s togetherness and team spirit.
