” results show ’til this weekend.
But I want to discuss the dismissal of Randi and Kupono, even if it is a few days after the fact.
Kupono is no stranger to being in the “bottom” — wow, that really doesn’t sound right, does it? — and that fact alone is proof, to me, that it was time for him to go. I like the kid, he’s got a great positive attitude, he’s had a couple very memorable performances — namely Mia Michael‘s “Addiction” number — and, like Cat Deeley, I admire his unique personal style. However, the four remaining boys have a little something extra that he’s been lacking all these weeks. I think their skill level, in general, is just more advanced. I mean, that Paso Doble that he and Randi performed was not Top 10 material. Not in the least. And that’s why I won’t quibble over America’s decision to send Randi home either. The Top 5 ladies are incredibly strong dancers — as Debbie Allen said, the strongest group of females the show has ever had — so, while it is tough to see Randi go, someone had to bite the dust and it might as well be the girl who had the worst performance Wednesday night, no?
