Chat about tonight's show here while the show is on.

They all sung 'Lets get

They all sung 'Lets get Loud' at the start of the Elimination show, I'm not sure if it was broadcast? But it was pretty err....bad.

That's not really what we

That's not really what we want to hear! ;) that our top 6 (then!) can't even sing a song together :|

Well they all have

Well they all have individual, soloist type voices, it's not that easy to make voices like that blend well together!

I think it was just the weird song choice too.

Can anyone tell me the name

Can anyone tell me the name of the song they all sang in the 'groove' intro?  cant get it out of my head but dont know what it is...

Hey Ya - OutKast.

Hey Ya - OutKast.

Here's my thoughts on the

Here's my thoughts on the Groove show:

Aroha seemed to just sing her song and wave her arms about with again putting nothing into the song apart from paracticed movements.

Ben's singing did seem to get lost amongst his dance moves.  I remember the same thing happened to Robin.  Does need to concentrate on his singing more.  No improvement or change with him at all.

I really enjoyed Kali, one of her best performances I thought.  Was very surprised and disappointed about the judges comments, they never seem to say anything good about her.  Well I'm pleased to see it looks like a lot here liked what she did too.

Not so outstanding for Toni this week.  She tried something different from the last weeks, still OK though. 

Matt never lets us down.  In fact he's stepping up the mark every week.  Was concerned about his slow 'old' song choice.,  But once he was singing loved the way he started off, then he got upbeat with it and started moving, showing what a versatile performer he is. The singing never letting him down at all! Fantastic performance.  Frankie did say he wished it  had been longer, guess that mean he liked it.

Loved watching  Indira too.  She shows a confidence on the stage that just adds so much to whatever she does.

The 2 best were definately Matt (again) and Indira.  The worse 2 were Aroha and Ben.

I thought Indira and Ben

I thought Indira and Ben were both tragic.I was embarrased for both of them.

and I dont get Ben attempting Justin Timberlake. I thought Ben was a rock boy?? I dont think they shoulda let him try this song, and ugh, the dancing. He looked totally uncomfortable.

The others were all alright I spose.

But out of all of them... would anyone here go into a feeding frenzy and order/buy there album?? queue up for hours to see them, or get their autograph??

i thought the dancing was

i thought the dancing was awesome!  i was watching with friends and we started cheering in his solo bit

oh dear....... !! were you

oh dear....... !!

 were you at the show perhaps ?? maybe it looked better onstage than it did on telly,  

no, just at home I like

no, just at home :-) I like that kind of hip hop music video dance and I thought he looked smooth

But what about the

But what about the singing?  This is a singing contest after all!

hehehe i agree with you 100%

hehehe i agree with you 100% vee... tragic is probably an understatement!!!

It didnt help that he was

It didnt help that he was less "emotive" than Aroha! O_O

I liked Kali and Toni's

I liked Kali and Toni's performances.. Didn't like Ben's at all! His dancing annoys me.

I'm so glad I'm not the only

I'm so glad I'm not the only one HORRIFIED by the cluelessness of the judges! How they even in a position to judge??!!

I thought Kali was awesome! Such a groovy song and very unusual/less trodden on which I like! Thought Matt was OUTSTANDING and definitely the performance of the night. He actually sounds goo enough to be in American or Aus idol which is very very rare on the horror that can be NZ Idol.

Ben and Aroha were definitely the weakest. Aroha did a very schoolgirl performance...showed no emotion, no interpretation, no expression. Ben was just painful.

Indira was pretty good and Toni was great too!

Dom should keep quiet and

Dom should keep quiet and just keep to the presenting! - judges are there for a reason - we need top 6 material singers! and if they cant reach that level - they deserve that boot up their A$$!

Will be interesting to see

Will be interesting to see if you agree with me that Kali was better than Matt for song choice.

Kalis song was too cabaret

Kalis song was too cabaret for me.  I prefer Matts song, and tonight, prefer Matt

 I just want to see and

 I just want to see and hear Toni - everyone else can go home - TONI FOR NZIDOL !

oohh, this is sounding good

oohh, this is sounding good

Perhaps this was all rigged

Perhaps this was all rigged to get everyone to vote for Kali.

Ew Admin. Dont start that

Ew Admin. Dont start that because then people wont vote for her. Since you're like so influential.

LOL... nah I just find it

LOL... nah I just find it strange how they diss Kali on song choice but not Matt.

They dont diss Matt because

They dont diss Matt because Megan has to have some eye candy and Stables and Frankie dont want to make girlfriend angry in case she throws up on them again.

Lmao "we'll vote for kali"

Lmao "we'll vote for kali" go that person

I like it when Meggies top

I like it when Meggies top is closed ................ ewww when it's open !

Yes, I talked to her

Yes, I talked to her afterwards and um... there's no way I'd wear that.

Am I blind? And maybe deaf??

Am I blind? And maybe deaf?? I thought Kalis performance was fantastic, and like she said - the world would be a very sad place if everyone grooved to the same thing!

Ben - as per usual - was just plain dreadful. As a dancer I DO NOT understand how exactly he considers himself one when he constantly looks awkward and gangly!

Oh and how comes its ok for Toni to take G & R and make it her own style, whereas Kali is constantly being slammed for being "theatrical" when thats her style??...

As a dancer then Carole,

As a dancer then Carole, you should understand what it means to win an advanced scholarship at the Phoenix Dance Convention - picked by tutors from the USA and Australia, based on jazz, lyrical and hip hop routines.

That's just part of why Ben considers himself a dancer :-)

ha ha are you a ballet

ha ha are you a ballet dancer?!!!

Not quite sure what type of

Not quite sure what type of dance you learn Carole - ballroom perhaps - but those moves of Ben's were up to the minute and what is done in this day and age. 

As a regular clubber and

As a regular clubber and watcher of C4 and Juice TV, I can assure you that the robot when out in the 1980s. I have never once seen a hip hop video with those moves. Not even JT or Usher do the advanced robot.

Ball room dancing is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more badass than what Ben did last night.
