“Hanging By A Thread" from season 10? :)
SYTYCDAU4: Renelle & Michael, “Lay Me Down”
Contemporary choreographed by Travis Wall [ x ]
Lol, I think he would’ve had to come in second to be the new Travis wall, but I get your point. I think Ricky’s extension might be beyond Travis’ anyway. I’m glad your fave won tho :)
GUYS GUYS GUYS
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE HAS BEEN RENEWED!
FOR SEASON 12!
Kathryn & Ricky - Not About Angels
Exactly. Once is chance, twice is coincidence, three times is a pattern.
No problem :) Tyce can be pretty problematic, but he has done some great routines. I obviously have issues with him, but I’ll give him that.
The reason likely why they get away with stuff like that is because it’s a different show, for a different country - Most North Americans probably wouldn’t watch a show like this in a language they don’t understand - unless they do in fact come from those countries originally and speak those particular languages.
Tyce didn’t choreographed either of those routines though. He wasn’t rehashing a routine he did three years ago, he was directly imitating some one else’s work. I’m not trying to discredit Valerie or Zack. It definitely was a stand out moment for the both them, and some of the best acting & chemistry we’ve seen this season. I just don’t think Tyce should get credit where credit isn’t due
I’m sorry but changing the dance from two blind characters to one doesn’t put him in the clear. I know the links may have been confusing so let me clarify that the second routine was in relation to Chehon & Kathryn’s routine, not Val & Zack’s, because I don’t know how you could miss the blatant imitation regarding the use of the suitcase & lifts. I don’t mind that he was inspired by those routines but copying exact concepts—even if slightly altered— and exact moves doesn’t fly with me.
Edit: Let me also point out that he didn’t choreograph either of those routines. He appeared as a guest judge and was in the audience for the second Ukrainian routine.
Maybe “steal” isn’t the right word but “heavily inspired” to the point where the imitation is pretty obvious may be close. Compare this routine from SYTYCD Ukraine to Val & Zack’s and you’ll see what I mean. He did the same thing with "Eli Eli" from season 9 with Chehon & Kathryn too. The fact that Tyce has actually appeared on the Ukrainian program makes it that more embarrassing.
