SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: Season 7’s Last Pre-Finale Eliminee Talks Backstage

August 6, 2010 by  

So, if you haven’t yet seen this week’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and you don’t want to know who was eliminated, you probably shouldn’t be inside this post…

But if you’ve already seen it — or you don’t care about being spoiled — we’re good.

GIVE ME MY REMOTE was backstage at the show and got a chance to chat with the final kid to be cut before next week’s season ender.

Take a look at the video below to see what Adechike Torbert had to say about the harsh criticism he got from the judges — namely Mia Michaels — what his favorite memory of the experience will be, which numbers he’d most like to perform on tour and where he plans to go after the tour ends…

Any thoughts?

Think it was stupid to ask him why he seemed so down?

    No, I don’t think it was silly to ask. For those of us who have watched your weekly videos with the eliminated contestants, Adechike seemed more somber than his peers who went before him. It was noticeable, so I think it was find to ask.

    I really admire this young man. Although he wasn’t the one I voted for, I have a great respect for him, especially after learning about his struggles, growing up in a rough part of Brooklyn and facing lots of challenges. With that kind of drive and determination, he’s going to be just fine. I wish him the best. And I wish I could reach through the screen and give him a hug! 🙂

    Just some general comments…

    Adechike was definitely deserving of lasting so long in the competition…I’m so glad that he made it to 4th place! I wish that they would have made a point to comment on air how NONE of the All-Stars won their season! And yet, the judges put the all stars up on such a pedestal now that they aren’t competing. If they could’ve just voiced that one time while Jose, Billy and Adechike were still on the show then I think we’d all breathe a little easier when we hear the judges criticisms. They are supposed to find things to critique and sometimes it comes out harshly to the audience (but it’s like they get to hear the true thoughts of why a choreographer/director may not hire them in the future and things that they can work on). I have heard Mia say “I love you” to contestants (as an apology for her remarks) more times than I think she needed to this season.

    I have said it before, and I love Kent’s personality, but I really think Lauren would be my pick if I were calling in! If Kent or Lauren were on last season in the fall, they would have walked away with it, IMO.

    My favorite triple threat, though: Kent, Neil and Travis…..WOW! Neil’s best performance this season (seemed like he was into it for once)…I think Travis really brought the best out in both of them!

    Also loved Robert and Dominic’s Unemployed Clown routine! So fun!!!! Oh, that reminds me…Why didn’t Lythgoe ask NEIL if he wanted to come on the tour? We all knew that Dominic was already on the docket. Does Neil have a job lined up already? Not that I’d go (only because disposable income isn’t in my vocabulary), but still.

    One more quick comment….I was so looking forward to the Neil/Lauren Night of the Dancing Flame routine (as one might guess, wink), but I was really disappointed. First of all, the camerawork was HORRIBLE! Half of the fun of that routine is seeing Neil’s acting and his black eyes, but the camera was panned back way too far…also I just don’t like these routines the second time around on the new stage. It feels too forced or stretched with all the running around to try and fill up the much larger space with different choreography or elongated steps. On that same note, the dancers introduction at the top of the show NEEDS to be changed because they don’t have enough counts to run to their mark, do a few dance steps and get out of the way for the next dancer. If they are going to keep the same format then the dancers should already be onstage so they don’t have to struggle so much to get to that mark…OK, I’ll take a breath now!
