Ravi and Gunjan were all over the place! Ravikishan gets so out of control in his performances that he forgets that he's supposed to be dancing. The poise and grace that a form like salsa requires was very lacking in his performance today. I feel that Gunjan is average dancer and a below average choreographer. What was the point of incorporating the singer into the performance? Or have them circling them throughout the performance? It was so distracting! I think they got confused between dancing to live singing and teen ka tadka. The only good that came out of this performance was the fact that we can all confirm now that Neeraj Sridhar is a terrible singer and all his songs are courtesy of high-end technology that the music industry relies on!
Susheel and Alisha were good - one of their better performances, but seriously, it's time for them to go. It's getting more and more intolerable as the days go by. I do see Susheel finally picking up some steps though.
That said, I cannot BELIEVE that Susheel and Ravi scored MORE than Jayati and Divakar! What were the judges thinking??!!! They gave Ravi and Gunjan 8s and 9s?!?! And Susheel 8s, and Jayati and Divakar get 6s and 7s? I really don't understand this logic! If Jayati ji gets 6s, then Ravi and Gunjan should get 5s, and Susheel and Alisha should get 4s. This is ridiculous! I don't know why they're trying so hard to get her kicked off. I thought it was a pretty average performance and not as bad as the judges made it out to be. She must have been scared dancing in heels, but she didn't really let it show, and more importantly focused on the salsa and dancing part of her performance!
Gurmeet and Shampa were good today! I'm glad that last season's Shampa is coming back slowly. The concept wasn't very innovative, but the choreography was really good. Gurmeet's expressions were excellent. I do think Gurmeet needs to work on bringing more grace in his dancing. It's always very visible that his transitions require a lot of effort on his part, whether it's getting back up from the floor or going into or out of a lift. One thing though, I was really confused about the challenge. My initial instinct was that they would have their hands tied behind them. That's much more challenging, and I thought it was what the judges wanted. Shampa took the easy way out and just had them bind their hands, so they could still use their arms. I think that kind of defeated the purpose of the challenge.
Salman, Isha and Karanvir were excellent! Excellent choreography, song choice, and concept. It really was a sexy performance. There's something about Salman that really is extremely professional. He always uses the outfits, the ambiance, the props, the song to enhance his choreography. Other choreographers lack that intellect a lot of times. He knows how to take his choreography the whole nine yards and make it shine. Loved this performance!! My only complaint was that Isha lacked lip sync at times and at times she was singing along. That confused me; she needs to be more consistent with that because otherwise she breaks her connection with the audience.
Bharti and Manish were cute again today! I don't know what's up with bringing in NEW contestants as wildcards, but they better send some really good choreographers with them as well. We need to get the competition going.
