.Rei Posted July 25, 2022 Author Share Posted July 25, 2022 AU1 RESULTS PART THREE 12. Kate Wormald & Jack Chambers - "No One" - (Lyrical Jazz by Juliette "Jet" Verne) Watch it here (23:25) RANKINGS: @*Diana - 3 @Erestor - 6 @*Chris - 8 @FrogLenzen - 10 @*Amanda - 12 @taylorkat - 12 @*Wallace - 15 @Alex95 - 16 @JC - 18 @.Rei - 20 Avg. Score = 12.00 COMMENTS Derek Quote good Wallace Quote Ugh the video for this wasn't really working for me. But it's Kate and Jack dancing a Lyrical Jazz (something within their own style) to a classic Alicia Keys song. So I know and remember loving this routine but I don't know how much I loved it compared to these other routines. So I could be under-ranking this but this will have to do for now. Alex Quote Tbh I considered petty cutting it because I found the whole thing with the peace flag to be abundantly cheesy, but I just didn't have the heart to cut Kate & Jack. JC Quote This was cute but not as memorable as others. Rei Quote Kate & Jack had an amazing quickstep and hip hop, so one would think that their lyrical piece would be out of this world but instead we got this!!! I died of boredom after watching this. This never should have made the top 20 over the likes of Fishies, Ghost in the Machine and Pump it and it shouldn't have place at #12 further robbing another 8 routines 11. Kate Wormald & Rhys Bobridge - "Message To My Girl" - (Rumba by Jason Gilkison) Watch it here RANKINGS: Diana - 5 Gigi - 5 Amanda - 7 Patrick - 10 Alex - 11 Derek - 13 Rei - 14 Chris - 14 Wallace - 17 JC - 19 Avg. Score = 11.50 COMMENTS Derek Quote not bad Rei Quote Kate slayeeeeeeeeeeeeddd this!!! Wallace Quote This Rumba from Kate & Rhys is really gorgeous. This was one of the two routines I would have preferred voting out in the voting round but left it alone for Diana. But yeah this was beautifully danced and performed from Kate & Rhys. They danced with beautiful technique and had great soft romantic chemistry. I really liked all of the partnering they did. Kate showcased some elegant lines with her legs. Rhys partnered and showcased her like the proper ballroom man. A beautiful routine but not a dance I really connect or addicted to like most of the other dances so that's why it's on the lower end of my rankings. JC Quote JGilk ballroom is always fun. 10. Rhiannon Villarreal & Graeme Isaako - "4 Minutes" - (Jazz Funk Hip-Hop by Juliette "Jet" Verne) Watch it here RANKINGS: Patrick - 2 Wallace - 4 JC - 5 Chris - 6 Amanda - 9 Diana - 15 Rei - 15 Gigi - 17 Alex - 19 Derek - 20 Avg. Score = 11.20 COMMENTS Wallace Quote I remember always wanting Rhiannon & Graeme to perform together so I was really happy that they did on Final 8 night. I thought they delivered a fun, fantastic and outstanding routine here. I think they had a Mr. and Mrs. Smith inspired theme here? I just loved everything about this dance - from the choreography, the routine, the song choice and how they both danced and performed this. I liked the in sync moves they did at various parts of the dance but then those parts where they were doing their own thing. I love those lifts and tricks they did here too. This routine is so fun, slick and I just love the style of it. Makes me so happy. JC Quote Ugh Rhi should have been eliminated over Kassy but at least Graeme is in this. Rei Quote fun routine.. I like my jazz-funk routines that are fun and this is one of those Derek Quote Sloppy. Timbo can’t even save this 09. Top 12 - "Blackbird" (Jazz by Kelley Abbey) Watch it here RANKINGS: Derek - 1 Chris - 5 Alex - 6 Rei - 10 Gigi - 10 JC - 11 Amanda - 11 Patrick - 17 Diana - 18 Wallace - 19 Avg. Score = 10.80 COMMENTS Derek Quote The best and most authentic Fosse routine of this entire franchise. The best routine of Australia Season 1. Kelley Abbey is in the upper echelon of choreographers to ever be on the show. I can't wait for everyone to tank this. Apparently my role in this rankdown is to kick and scream until I get the absolute minimum amount of group routines in the finals and it is an honorable and necessary role that I do with pride. If you were to pick a SYTYCD routine to show to a dancer who has never seen any episodes in any country and convince them that this show has quality/merit/legitimacy/artistry/etc., this would probably be the routine you should show them. I'm not sure if this style of dance is just not IDF's cup of tea, or if you guys just all fast forward through all the group routines... but Australia has some truly world-class group numbers in the upcoming seasons and hopefully you're not all closed off completely from including those in the finals as well. I appreciate everyone who helped this get into the Top 20 even if it is likely going to be robbed of a good placement. Alex Quote Any dance that says Jack Chambers Supremacy has my love and adoration. Rei Quote This is green group routine but it often pales when I compare it to the amazing AU2 group routines that are among the best of any series and ones that I will fight when that round comes. I still like it well enough to give it my #10 JC Quote This robbed some routines, but I am not going to be petty and rank it low. Even if Derek was being betchy. Wallace Quote Beautiful routine, but it's not one I really think of or really go back on when watching routines from this season. I did keep from cutting this for Derek so I'm happy he got this in the Top 20 but I can't really rank it too high as I care about so many other routines more. But again, this is nice and I can get the love for it. All 12 of the contestants dance this routine really well. I feel like Jack and Vanessa stood out to me here.
