So they just used P's new lyrical dance song on the show. "Hanging by a Thread". They just finished the choreography for it in June.

I just downloaded it!! I lOVE it!!! I was wondering if we could get away with using it now that it's been on the show. It will be a beautiful solo, I love the lyrics!

I love it too and the dance is gorgeous. I just hope it's not on the overused list.

Who cares? It's beautiful. Tell P not to give it a second thought.

Makenzie and Paul are my favorites of the night. Just goes to show hip hop can be so different and still be legitimate HipHop. That's one of the things I love about hip hop as a genre. You just can't (shouldn't) try to restrict it to mean one thing.

I couldn't watch the show (will watch it on on demand soon), but everything I'm finding online is saying that Mariah and Blueprint went home. Can't disagree w/ that even though I didn't even see the show ;).

Love Hanging by a Thread. A senior duet from our studio used it 2 years ago and we heard it at a lot of comps back then (northeast). It must be a regional thing.

I haven't watched the whole show but I absolutely am in love with Fushion and Amy(?).  They entertain the heck out of me.  The choreography was my absolute favorite.  To choreograph to that "song" AND tell a story is amazing!

The two very tall black dancers (sorry, I am awful with names) fascinate me but not so much dance skills but at how such giant humans don't fall over when dancing.  Her legs are hypnotizing.  I thought their foot work was slow for a "quick-step" but I think I like them for the wrong reason - they are just so big!

The little blond girl reminds me of my dd.  Not skill level, boy do we wish! But how she completely transforms on stage.  She really becomes the person/dance she is portraying.

I approve both of these messages.

I haven't watched yet.  One thing that sucks about my husband being on vacation is he is home at night and interfering with mine and my girls TV routine :)

I was wondering how tall they are. Considering Malece said she's 5'2" and 98 lbs they might just be average height people standing next to very small people.

Yeah, and it is "Fik-shun", not Fushion.  Gah, I'm awful with these names.

I couldn't find any info on Jasmine's (the tall dancer's name) height.  But I did find the host, Cat Deeley, is 5'9" and she wears heels on the show.  Jasmine and her partner, Aaron are usually barefoot when they stand next to her and look about the same height.

I still haven't seen the full show but I still am in disbelief from last week's show and these dancer's hip hop performance.  For this being their wheel house, it was really awful.

I agree with the decision to send them home.

Too funny. Hanging by a Thread was a really overused lyrical solo/group song when I was dancing (about 10 years ago). I always loved it but never used it because hands down there would be at least 3 or 4 16 or 17 year old lyrical solos to it at a given competition. Maybe it's time to recycle!

Hey Ladies,
I am NOT a dance mom, only a dance lover. I follow your board because I find most of your opinions on the technical aspects of dance helpful and interesting. I've learned A LOT reading here. Anyway I follow Jasmine H. on Twitter and asked her ow tall she was a while ago because I was curious. She's 5'7.
Hope this Helps!

Thanks! I was trying to use my geometry skills to guess earlier today. We paused the tv while she was standing with Cat Deeley and had guessed 5'8". We had to guess on the height of the heels on their shoes.

Wow I never would have guessed Cat Deeley was only 5'9. I thought she was closer to 5'11 or 6' and that Jasmine was 5'10ish. I was way off. It's a bunch of shorties on this show it seems :)
