‘World of Dance’ 5th Judge: J.Lo Challenges Derek Hough to Chair Dance as Talent Gets Stronger

Just once I’m going to get through an episode of “World of Dance” without having an emotional reaction to a beautiful piece of dance. Just not this week.

It wasn’t even a particularly sappy performance, or an overly-produced treacly story. It was two kids and a chair, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. Jennifer Lopez immediately challenged Derek Hough to jump through the chair the way one of the kids did … but more on that later.

Dancers are divided into four categories: Junior (17 & Under, 1-4 Dancers) and Upper (18 & Older, 1-4 Dancers). First up it’s the Qualifiers, a free-for-all round with no head-to-head competitions. But acts need to score 80 points out of a possible 100 to advance to the next round. Each act is judged 0-20 points in each of five categories for a possible total of 100 points.

A quick reminder about me: I spent nearly a decade of my life sweating and bleeding to the music as a dancer, all for this moment: armchair judging a dance competition. From a young boy learning a shuffle-ball-change to performing with the St. Louis Ballet Company, I experienced the ups and downs of one of the most difficult physically demanding sports on the planet.

Fair warning, since I’m safe at home, I’m probably going to be a little harsher than my colleagues Ne-Yo, Jennifer Lopez, and Derek Hough . But I might be nicer, too. Maybe.

The Ruggeds

(Upper Team) It’s hard to stand out as a b-boy crew as it’s a style that’s been around for decades and yet we’re always looking for something new. It’s just part of the style coming from street competitions. I’m not sure the overall choreography was strong enough to carry them far and they weren’t quite tight enough, but they did some solid-b-boy stunts with interesting visuals throughout. I would have liked to see a little bit more of a challenging edge represented throughout the crew, rather than it seeming to be the one or two guys who can do the most on their heads and everyone else just kind of shuffles and slides along next to them.

Judges Scores: 83.3

My Score: 17 (Performance), 15 (Technique), 13 (Choreography), 15 (Creativity), 16 (Presentation) = 76

Josh & Taylor

(Junior) This teen duo brought a little bit of storytelling to their routine, with a detective-criminal element. I’m not sure the story carried completely through the number, but I didn’t care. They did some amazing partnering, their use of a chair prop was mesmerizing from one moment to the next. But mostly it was about some clever choreography they could never have pulled off if they weren’t practically living in the same skin. It was like watching one dancer in two bodies at times. I think I could watch them perform over and over again.

Watch the video to see what happened when J.Lo and Derek attempted some of their same moves!

Judges Scores: 93.3

Lock N lol Crew

(Upper Team) I love a routine where every moment is considered, and this was such smart choreography from top to bottom. Even when one member of this large crew wasn’t in the spotlight, they were serving the overall performance with tight movements in synch with those around them. That’s what it takes to stand out as a dance crew. I would have loved to see a little more difficulty in the choreography, but the tightness was unreal and the overall visual style was so much fun to just sit back and take in.

Judges Scores: 81

My Score: 16 (Performance), 16 (Technique), 18 (Choreography), 17 (Creativity), 16 (Presentation) = 83

Michael Dameski

(Upper) The winner of Australia’s “So You Think You Can Dance” has struggled to make his mark in the U.S., so he came into this hoping “World of Dance” could change the course of his career. There was a fierce aggression to his movements you don’t usually see in contemporary. Michael brought strength and charisma to boot, but it was his control of body that almost never betrayed him, save one wobbly moment early on. But this guy is definitely the real deal. Some of those tricks were sick!

Judges Scores: 92.7

My Score: 18 (Performance), 20 (Technique), 19 (Choreography), 18 (Creativity), 18 (Presentation) = 93

LD Dance Company

(Upper Team) This group had a challenge doing Latin style dance with only one male member. That left some of the girls doing fairly repetitive moves on the outskirts while he tried to be dynamic inside. Then, when we did get some partnering, I was underwhelmed. They had great costumes and high energy, but I didn’t see enough technique to really grab onto. They were definitely showy than they were technically proficient.

Judges Scores: 74.3

My Score: 15 (Performance), 13 (Technique), 15 (Choreography), 16 (Creativity), 14 (Presentation) = 73

Rascals

(Junior Team) This Hawaiian group couldn’t have been more excited to represent their home state on the world stage. It maybe wasn’t as clean as they would have liked, but I love that these sweet kids put so much stank on that stage. They tried some challenging lifts, and pulled off most of them, and they were fun to watch. If they tighten up what they’re doing, they could be a great growth story for a season arc.

Judges Scores: 84.7

My Score: 17 (Performance), 15 (Technique), 17 (Choreography), 16 (Creativity), 17 (Presentation) = 82

Elektro Botz

(Upper) Now that is locking done right. Interesting and engaging from the first note, these guys created some stunning visuals, and made the music work for what they were doing. That’s commanding every aspect of your performance. The precision was on point. Even the littlest movements were done with purpose and with an awareness of the trio. The creativity of the choreography was off the chain. This group added artistry and vision to their amazing technique. Simply stunning audition.

Judges Scores: 89

My Score: 18 (Performance), 18 (Technique), 19 (Choreography), 20 (Creativity), 18 (Presentation) = 93

“World of Dance” airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

El Chapo Guzman si-a angajat “dream team” de avocati cu incredibila suma de 5 milioane de dolari!

Published

El Chapo Guzman si-a angajat “dream team” de avocati. Trei oameni il vor apara in procesul care sta sa inceapa in Statele Unite.

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman si-a angajat 3 avocati cu incredibila suma de 5 milioane de dolari, scrie NY Post. Potrivit jurnalistilor de peste ocean, suma de 5 milioane este onorariul minim pe care avocatii il vor primi, ea putand sa creasca in cazul in care vor reusi sa ii obtina mexicanului o sentinta favorabila.

Primul avocat angajat de familia lui El Chapo este Jeffery Lichtman, cel care l-a aparat pe faimosul John “Junior” Gotti, un alt mafiot celebru.

Ceilalti doi avocati sunt Eduardo Balarezo si William Purpura, care l-au aparat in trecut pe Alfredo Beltran Leyva, traficant rival cu El Chapo, condamnat in SUA, caruia i s-au confiscat 529 de milioane dolari.

Vestea a iscat un val de nemultumire in SUA, avocatii fiind acuzati ca sunt platiti cu bani patati cu sange nevinovat.

“Sunt bani din droguri, sunt bani patati cu sange”, spun numeroase voci din Statele Unite.

Miley Cyrus, în vârstă de 25 de ani,  a declarat că este ”devastată” după ce locuinţa sa a fost mistuită de flăcările care continuă să se extindă în statul California, informează luni Press Association. Cântăreața a postat un mesaj pe Twitter.

”(Sunt) complet devastată de incendiile care îmi afectează comunitatea. Mă număr printre cei norocoşi. Animalele mele şi dragostea vieţii mele au scăpat tefere; asta e tot ceea ce contează acum. Casa mea nu mai rezistă, însă amintirile pe care le-am trăit cu familia şi prietenii sunt puternice. Sunt recunoscătoare pentru tot ce mi-a rămas”, a scris pe Twitter vedeta americană

Mai multe incendii sunt active atât în nordul cât şi în sudul statului California. Peste 230 de persoane erau date dispărute duminică, amplificând temerile potrivit cărora bilanţul deceselor ar putea creşte.

Zeci de vedete, printre care Kim Kardashian West, Caitlyn Jenner şi Lady Gaga au fost nevoite să îşi părăsească locuinţele din Malibu ameninţate de flăcări, potrivit Agerpres. Actorul Gerard Butler a scris pe Instagram că locuinţa sa din Malibu a fost ”pe jumătate distrusă”. Cel puțin nouă persoane au murit în urma incendiilor devastatoare de vegetație din California, SUA. În același timp, peste 2.000 de case au fost distruse de foc și alte 15.000 sunt amenințate. Totodată, 25.000 de persoane au fost evacuate de autorități.
