We all know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show riigghhht?? I can't get enough of that dancin. My heart starts pumping... i'm smiling the whole time.. and if it's a really great routine I may be known to squeal out loud. I swear in my past life I was a dancer. I hope so at least. I only wish I carried it over to this life. Man I wish I could move like that! Anywho... it doesn't get much better than tonight. One of my favorite people ever is guest judging.. Ellen DeGeneres. She is hilarious!! She's been cracking me up the whole time so far, saying such funny stuff that I had to start this post. I'll never remember everything she says for your laughing pleasure so here you go:
when asked if she's had any formal training with her dancing:
"if you mean formal training as in training formally, I would say uh.. I mean.. I'll answer it this way. Everything I've learned, I've learned from the streets. And by the streets I mean my gated community and it was just one street. It was an area.. there were very few children. It was just myself actually. And there was a man down the street, Eduardo. And he and I would not necessarily dance but anyway.. umm.. so I guess no, I've not. " HA!!
"are you two carpenters, because you nailed it!"
"I really don't know what to say. I just wanted to come see a taping, these were really good seats. I didn't know I'd be judging. So I don't know what to say other than I'd like to invite both of you over to the house later. I have some pictures that need to be hung and your both good nailerrrs"
"the problem with this town is that every one's face starts looking the same.. you know.. the same doctor"
"all I can say is, you two keep dancing like that and you'll have your own talk show some day"
I have so many favorites right now that I really can't pick one. I love Janette, Jeanine, Ade, Melissa, Kayla, and Brandon. I really can't chose. Favorite dance by far for the night though was Melissa and Ade's contemporary piece depicting a couple dealing with breast cancer. It was SO emotional. There were tears coming from everyone just about. I couldn't find a video yet, but I'll work on that!
They aren't going to find out how far along the cancer is. She'll start a low dose of chemo this week. By Monday at the latest they expect her to be in a nursing home for some recouping time. The positive side, she hasn't lost her sense of humor from what my mom says :) I tried to call her tonight but didn't get an answer.. will try again tomorrow!
